“Nice Way to Enjoy a Glass of Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We went here on a Saturday afternoon and enjoyed ourselves. The staff was attentive. The wines were good and didn't kill our budget. There was a good choice of foods. We sat outside and comfortably had a nice experience.

“East Coast Attitude in Escondido”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Vinz is a place with personality, Vinny's personality. We have been dropping by since he bought the Continental Deli and then opened the Wine Bar. It is usually pretty busy and can be a zoo. It is not your quiet conversation place. However it you like people watching, good wine or beer with many great options for small plates and home made items this is the place. Just do not be in a hurry. Stop and smell the food and talk a little with Vinny or the friendly staff. We also have staged some planned special occasions with Vinny and they were very well received.

“Very disappointed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I went with some friends and was very disappointed with everything. Service was the worst. No one took our drink order for one 30 minutes. Food was bad and overy priced.

“Mmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The fact that this restaurant is on grand makes it even better. I crave Vinz once a week. They have a limited menu but I know exactly what I want when I go. Love their wine selection. Their patio is adorable and seems to be just a little hole in the wall on a very beautiful strip in Escondido. It's really nice to go at night because they light the heaters and grand gives it the extra charm. I recommend 100% for great pizza, italian and wine.

“Music & Wine -- What Could Be Better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Vinz is a nice place to go after dinner to have a glass of wine and hear live music, most of it quite good. I find the food menu to be limited though. More items would bring us there for dinner.
