Recently went to vine street, which I have wanted to visit for a while. Good was good but not with the $$$ sings for sure. There are many other local places out East that offer great menu items with less pretentious atmosphere. Our waitress was very nice though.

Pros: hostess , waitress , warm hot bread, location ,wine Cons: mussels not good , do not order, food average and expensive. Party of two with one glass of wine plus as haired salad and two entrees cost before tip $116. Not worth the expense. There are better values and tastier meals

This place is gorgeous and the service was great. I get a little underwhelmed by the food on shelter island with the high prices however this place was good. We shared a delicious cote de rhone from a decent wine list. Scallop ceviche we found fresh but under seasoned, I expected more lime zesty. Hanger steak was delicious and cooked... More

We went on a Tuesday (which seems to be the night that may restaurants are CLOSED on a Tuesday) and it was packed. The ambiance is romantic and cozy. That night was not my husband luck ... our waiter forgot his wine and we couldn't get a hold of a server since it was really busy but we finally did... More

It isn't cheap, but it sure is delicious. Vine Street is one of the great places to eat on Long Island's east end, and is justly praised by locals and visitors alike. Great food.

Food here is absolutely amazing. We started with some local oysters, then crispy squash blossoms stuffed with a really tasty local goat cheese! We shared a miso glazed salmon and a strip steak - both cooked to perfection. The staff was friendly and very professional. Our server made great recommendations for our meal, and then the sommelier came by and... More

My wife and I have been going to Vine Street each year for the past six years, and we have never been disappointed. The Vine Street Cafe is a rare treat in dining: excellent food, excellent and near-perfect ambience (once in a while you'll get a loopy customer with an obnoxiously loud laugh.) At tonight's visit, we had the Jumbo... More

making our reservation, confirming it and checking in with the maitre d' and her assistants were unpleasant experiences and it continued until we were finally seated half hour late on a Saturday night (to be expected in the summer). it is too bad as the waiters were eager to please and the food was delicious.

I have had the pleasure of dining at Vine Street Cafe probably a half dozen times over as many years on my annual fishing trip to Shelter Island. This place is really excellent. Nicely casual trendy, dim lighting Island feel. Terrific service and excellent food! What more can you ask for? Briny fresh local oysters on the half shell followed... More

A special place. Lovely setting in a simple setting, simple but warm. The food (ahi (montauck caught) tartare with olives and capers, boulliabaise (local fish) , roasted herb crusted local fluke) were accompanied with vegetables and sides using local ingredients. The wine list is balanced and well matched to the foods. However, the fare is not inexpensive. Dinner for two... More
