Upbeat atmosphere with great looking patrons. Very friendly manager, but our server was young and didn't seem to know much about food and wine. Initially the wrong wine bottle was brought to our table. Our server did check on us frequently, but the wine service was nonexistent...we poured our own wine throughout the meal. We started with two salads...they were... More

On the final evening of our 5-day "anniversary getaway" to the Hampton's, my wife and I ventured over to Shelter Island via the convenient ferry for dinner at this "destination" restaurant...happy to report it's worth the trek. Very rustic, both location and decor wise. We brought our own very special bottle of wine for a nominal corkage fee. Our server,... More

We had a wonderful dinner here and if you can get there early, the prix-fixed dinner has many choices and brings the cost down from significantly. The service was outstanding. We ordered smoked salmon and were brought a strange-looking concoction in a martini glass and were sure it was a mistake. The waiter told us it was indeed smoked salmon... More

We were vacationing on Shelter Island a few weeks ago and had a wonderful dinner at Vine Street. It was a beautiful evening and we chose to sit on the outdoor patio. There were five of of us and we all loved our selections. My skirt steak was very tender and delicious. My husband had a cioppino that he said... More

We had dinner here Friday night. All entrees and salads were first rate, I ordered the scallops which were served with a touch of curry and lardons, worth using my bread to scrape every last bit of sauce from my bowl. My friend had pasta with lobster and pasta fra diavolo. Service was good. Somewhat expensive but excellent quality.

Went to Vine Street Cafe on Shelter Island for the first time on a Monday evening with my wife and thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. Given that it was very early in the season, they were a bit short-staffed, but our waiter worked like mad to be attentive and move things along for us. The food was quite... More

Visiting this fine restaurant during the summer season is often difficult because it's so popular. A visit in the Spring is recommended, if you can do it. All the same fine food, good service, pleasant atmosphere without the noise of a crowd. Food excellent. One of our party was dissatisfied with what he ordered, it was immediately replaced with abundant... More
