“A Clarkesville Favorite Has Returned”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

If you liked the old Zanzo restaurant in Clarkesville, you will like GrapeVine's, as it is co-owned by the former Zanzo owner. Pretty much the same menu...food is very good (and plenty of it!), prices are very reasonable, comfortable, casual atmosphere, friendly service (some of the servers are still learning, but there are more experienced ones to help them out), decent wine choices. We have been there several times since it opened in May 2013. Only open for dinner, and not open on Sundays.

“If you liked Zanzos or the Zanzoni Grill, you will like this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The owner paired up with the owner of the previous restaurant that was in this location; Pueblos.
Food was tasty, but my lasagna serving was a bit small. Garlic or some toasted bread would have been my preference over a variety of rolls to dip in the cheese/oil plate. My wife's vegatables in marinara sauce was also good. This restaurant has only been open a few weeks, so some kinks need to be ironed out. When served a bottle of wine, the customer should be allowed to taste it first. Also...do not fill the wineglass. Grapevines needs to serve good or at least filtered water. Clarkesville's city water (from the Soque river) was a bit heavy on the taste of chlorine that night. Their putting a lemon wedge in it did not help the flavor very much.
All in all we liked the place and will be returning in the future. Right now they are only open for dinners after 5pm.

“Good food, good prices, enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Enjoyed a great meal with menu similar to old Zanzo's restaurant that use to be in Charkesville.

Ziti seems to be a specialty and is very good.

Enjoyed Chicken Marsala as well.

Would definitely return again.

“We enjoyed our meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Decent food. Nice atmosphere. Excellent service. Reasonable prices. The kids spaghetti was a little bland according to my 14YO expert. The alfredo was nice. We also enjoyed the smoked chicken ravioli.
