Ranked #2 of 324 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!!

Loved loved loved Vine three years ago. Could not get in last year since I was not a local. So excited to obtain a reservation this year while on vacation. Clearly success has stroked the HH culinary ego. As the service staff recited the short story description of two appetizers we simply lost interest. Just too complicated. We went with... More

Our trips to Hilton Head island from now on will always include a visit to Vine. The food was creative and great tasting. The staff was fun and relaxed. The owner actually chased us out the door to thank us for dining there. Don't let any of the parking lot reviews scare you..great romantic atmosphere!

Not the most impressive setting but far & away the best food. dining room small & cramped. Outside terrace overlooking parking lot doubles seating capacity. Service exceptional. A true "foodies" delight. Impressive selection of food. Best duck that I have ever had. Sea bass was phenomenal. Good wine list. Also likely the most expensive restaurant on Hilton Head.

The owner and chef and staff all work together to create a great experience and meal. The wine selections were great - and we kept getting 'tastes' of wines that went with our meal even when our main drink was something else! The food was creative and perfectly cooked. Some of us have celiac and the staff and chef did... More

Even it was late and they probably should have told us they were closed they fed us... And fed us well! The staff was delightful and didn't make us... More

Yes the quarters are cramped and yes it is not cheap but the food is excellent and the service is very good as well(sometimes a little bit to theatrical in their descriptions and promoting of items). The space is small, intimate and dimly lit but if your looking for a special night out with great food in a romantic space,... More

I was so excited to dine at Vine after reading all the reviews, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! Let me start by saying that it is very tight quarters. If you are easily frustrated with people bumping into you, then this isn't going to be an easy place for you to dine, but if you can look past that, the... More

We visited with a party of seven. The restaurant is small and dark, Italian decor but, strangely, Spanish-style music playing loudly until we asked if they could turn it down. The food was good--some inventive preparations and fresh fish. But the service was pretentious; the waitstaff kept interrupting the meal to tell us what we'd ordered as they set our... More

We were here in 2012 and had an amazing experience. Tonight, we had the pleasure of dining at VINE again. Steve and Harry and Dolce, the ownership and service team, were perfectly attentive. The food is seriously the best. I cannot say enough good things about Vine. Everything on the menu is absolutely delicious. Thank you for a wonderful evening.... More
