Visited last evening for dinner. Decent atmosphere for a basement restaurant, impressive wine and beer list, would be nice and cozy in winter time. Live jazz was a plus. Food was terrible, had mussels with white wine garlic, guy beside me had 14 dollar french fries with steak and salad, it took forever to get his food. Food and service... More

Get the fourteen dollar fries!!! Such a good meal and a great price!! Its an awesome place to drink and chat. The service was excellent and the food is impressive!! They offer wine and beer flights, which are awesome to decide what you like and feel like drinking.

Beer menu stretches out over several pages. Descriptions are complete. We sampled quite a few options and the staff knew their product. Food was even very good. I'd go back for sure.

The place is very cozy and cute. The wine selection is great and the music on Tuesday evenings is great. The service was also good. I didn't try the food myself but my friends liked their appetizers.

We had no agenda except to take care of our self. In the afternoon we walk to enjoy our self and at the same time looking for a place to eat in the evening. We found The Vineyards, got to the hotel, read about it and we we're not disappointed. Plus we include some oyster in our diner, everything was... More

Great little hidden spot in the market for some wine and conversation. No mixed drinks here; just an amazing wine list, imported beers and the best scotches in town. The food's ok, but you're really go here for the ambience; date night or girls night out.

The Vineyards has a great variety in wine selections but the food was just so-so. My fiancee and I were expecting more as the ambiance was very nice. One would expect better food for all the wines to pair with but this wasn't the case. 4 of us dined for dinner and everyone's dish had something wrong with it -... More
