I was at the Vineyard for meetings with my boss and co-worker in June and July. The first time I had a burger and the second time I had ravioli. The portions are good size, the food has lots flavor, and the presentation of the meals are very clean. This is some of the fanciest food you can get in... More

I was there in July with my wife and the food was good, the ambience pretty quiet (not too much people that day). Probably is one of the best restaurant in Madera. I think is just a little bit too expensive but is acceptable if you don't go frequently in this place.

My husband enjoyed he maple glazed salmon served with a perfect fig risotto and wilted kale. They offer a ice selection of wines and have a full bar. The wedge salad was crisp and tasty and the bread and special olive spread was a good compliment to accompany the salad. We chose to end our meal sharing a Creme brûlée... More

We have been coming here to eat for years. The food is always exceptional and the atmosphere is nice. Friendly wait staff and service is great. I would recommend for special occasions or for any date night. Small bar area for pre dinner cocktails.

The front desk at the Hampton Inn recommended this place, and it was perfect. We weren't super hungry so ordered two small plates, Rabbit Pot Pie and the Grilled Octopus. Both were delicious, the pot pie had a flaky crust, lots of rabbit and vegetables and a nice creamy sauce. The baby octopus were soft and moist, not chewy, and... More

The Vineyard is a gem in the Central Valley offering an inviting rural themed ambiance and local dishes that highlight the bounty of California's breadbasket. The Vineyard is family owned and operated, great for a business lunch or family celebration. If you are traveling along Highway 99 this is your best stop between Bakersfield and Modesto.
