Loved It!

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 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

We had a great meal in the quaint but very busy location. The menu was seasonally correct and we enjoyed the duck and salmon. Let the waiter pick what was a decent Pinot noir. Next to the absurdly overpriced and equally overrated Topping Room, this place was spectacular.

A somewhat cosy all American restaurant in a wonderful area. However, I found it very pricy particularly given the bad service. A waiter should really know how to serve wine! When we asked for a recommendation between 2 dishes, we were told that other dishes were better. My black bass was actually not bad, but I understand that the meat... More

Went to Vine Street this evening. Another wonderful meal - mine started with a half dozen sparklingly fresh Montauk Pearl oysters, followed by the Monday night special Bouillabaise, served properly with croûtons and rouille. You won't find better this side of Marseille. Attentive but unobtrusive service was most appreciated. This place is expensive, but the product is so good, it's... More
