“Good meal- friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, we shared the appetizer sampler platter and it was enough for a meal. The calamari was a large slab not the rings I am used too, but it was cooked very nicely and wasn't tough. The short rib special was tasty. Our server was very friendly. Drink prices were reasonable. Overall a nice meal. We would recommend it.

The vineyard is a very nice restaurant with wonderful atmosphere. Their wine list is good and cocktails from the bar are very good. The menu is diverse and you will certainly find something on it that will suite your fancy. Overall it is a very nice experience and everyone should give it a try.

“Best of Madera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you want a taste of local flavors, try the Vineyard. The olive spread for your bread, the fig with the pork tenderloin and the raisin sauce on the rib eye. The prices are reasonable and the food is above average. It is a place to take someone for a special occasion.

“Very good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant online as we traveled back to Chowchilla (no restaurants) from Yosemite. My husband had the house specialty lasagne and I had the steak with pesto, tomato, and mozzarella. My steak was perfectly prepared and very tender and delicious. My husband thought the lasagne was a little heavy on sausage but he liked it. They served bread with an olive tapenade the was out of this world - I could've just drank it it was so fabulous. Our waiter Mark was very pleasant and attentive but not overly so. A definite good experience !

“Good food and atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were looking forward to going here since it's #1 on TripAdvisor and we love Italian food. They start out by giving you fresh bread with olive tapenade, which was tasty. (Would have preferred olive oil, personally.) Husband ordered lasagna, I ordered the vegetable lasagna. The fresh tomato sauce was delicious. However, it had been sitting waiting to be served for too long. It was hot in the middle and cool on the sides. Salad was fresh and served with raisins and delicious vinaigrette dressing. Felt like it was a bit pricey for what we got, but we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We would return, but would ask the waitress to get our order out to us a little sooner so we could enjoy it while it's hot.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! I am terribly sorry to hear that your experience wasn't perfect and I would like you to know that if at any time during your meal you would like something to be addressed and corrected that we are more than happy to do so. If the tapenade is perhaps not to your taste there are always alternative options you can request at no charge: butter, olive oil & balsamic vinegar, pesto sauce etc. We aim to provide exceptional service and while I'm glad that overall you were pleased with your experience, we will strive to make it even better in the future.
