Improve this listing
Ranked #2 of 321 restaurants in Hilton Head
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $40 - $80
Dining options: Dinner, Reservations, Late Night
Description: If you have been to Europe and enjoy small cramped dining areas and a patio that is in a parking lot, then you will enjoy dining at Vine. If not, then there are many other fine establishments on Hilton Head that you will likely enjoy better.Our food is ordinary, our service sub standard, lights too low to see, and music too loud to hear. We offer nothing more than an invitation to our dinner party, to eat drink and enjoy life as we intend to enjoy it. If you are coming to test a five star rating, please stay clear and don't waste the effort.Ahh, but if you are open minded, enjoy the elegance of simplicity, then please come and join us!!

Recently we visited Vine on Hilton Head, SC. We were really excited to finally get to try it out. I heard it was fabulous, and the reviews were excellent so I had big expectations. There really isn't much atmosphere, they try but miss. The chairs were so uncomfortable which is a real downer at an Italian restaurant. The host and... More

My husband and I just went to Vine last night. We both agreed that the service was among the best we've experienced. Our servers name was Francesca or something like that, and Steve the owner came to our table to shave the truffles on my pasta. They really make the place. You can tell that Steve loves his creation.

The food is enchanting with ingredients imported from Italy and the produce from s local farm. It's true farm to table dining experience This is not cheap, not for kids and you truly enjoy food as a... More

You know how every beach town has the same menu at every restaurant? Thank heavens, this is not that place. This is where you go when you trust the chef to play with whatever is in season and make it uniquely delicious, from your pre-dinner cocktail through dessert. The staff is all on board with making it an experience, so... More

I have not yet gone to Vine for dinner and not been totally amazed. There is total perfection with perfectly prepared dishes, excellent service, and you're always made to feel like you're their best customer and a member of the family. It remains my families favorite restaurant on the island.

Our entire meal was excellent from our bruschetta appetizer, blood orange sorbet for a palette cleanser (this was such a nice surprise!), osso buco, filet brioche with candied apples and ginger carrot purée , and the wonderful tiramisu. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir the owner recommended to tie the entire meal in. We will be revisiting every year... More

Why, why, why don't business owners understand the importance of having the front of the house staff properly trained? You simply cannot bill yourself as the "best on the island" dining experience and have incompetent and rude young people returning reservation request phone calls. Your VERY specific and detailed instructions on your phone messages in order to secure a reservation... More

My wife and I went on a kid-free date to Vine. This is a truly remarkable restaurant that shines. These are people that view a meal as an event. Their love of food is evident in every detail. It is not cheap but it is worth every penny

You have great food, let it shine! I found all of the food we ordered had 2 too many ingredients added to a point where the dish did not make sense. One exception was the truffle linguini, perfection! The service was passionate and proud. And overall the food tasty.The atmosphere was horrible and we basically sat in the parking lot... More
