“This is a hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The food is the best on the Peninsula, bar none. The service is always top drawer. The only bad part is the wait, on a Friday night, look for 30-45 minutes, so get there early or late. Great restaurant that never disappoints!!!

“still VERY good and always enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

While we attempted to go to Fiorellos for a change of pace sadly they have closed up so back to the Vineyards we went. The food is very good with generous portions. My flounder wasn't quite cooked enough but the server gladly took it back to have it cooked more. The garlic knots are yummy. We will continue to go here and hope they don't go away anytime soon. The food is always fresh.

“One of the best...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

The Vineyards is a real hidden gem in Kiln Creek. They prepare some of the freshest Italian food in the area. Everything is cooked to order and you can really taste the quality ingredients they use in making every meal, not to mention the fresh garlic knots served with your meal.

“From past experience, today was an off day for them”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

I don't eat there a lot, but have always had a good experience until today.

Today they had a big group come in, and they didn't have the staffing (particularly in the kitchen) to cope with that plus everyone else. So meals were much delayed while they got all the meals out to this large group (about 12-15 people in that group, from what I could see, plus a smaller group of around 8). I've had the salmon salad before and it's delicious - but today the edge of the salmon hadn't had all the skin removed and it was like charcoal. The rest of the salmon was cooked well, if a bit overdone for my taste. The salad was more than ample for me to take the rest home for tomorrow's lunch, and the garlic knots are good. As I had a coupon I also got the cannoli, which is delicious. The waitress was unobtrusive but right there when needed. I'll just put today down to an off day where they got slammed unexpectedly, and yes, I will go back.

“Excellent Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We truly enjoy the entire meal from garlic knots to super Italian tossed salad (replete with Italian peppers) to the main course, which is always excellent!
