I loved the food at 2 Vine when I was there over a year ago, so I was excited to be going back after the recent renovation and taking some out of town family with me. Let me just start by saying that if I could give this review no stars, I would. Our server was hardly around, we had... More

My wife and I went to 2 Vine several times when it first opened years ago. My recollection, at least of thee last time, was of a fishy smell pervading the dining area. As a vegetarian, I don't feel welcomed by that odor. So now they've renovated and have a new menu, so I thought we'd give them another try.... More

First. ... must say our waiter was exceptional - if not for him this was a one star situation. I know the hipsters love fancy descriptive menus designed to make the food sound complicated - and this menu does not disappoint with items like "Augustus Caesar Salad" and "Faroe Island Salmon" (i.e. Farm raised Salmon). The descriptions are flowery and... More

Thank you for your valuable feedback, it helps us make our restaurant better. We have found that by and large, customers are interested in where ingredients come from and how our dishes are prepared. Faroe Island is a unique aquaculture area where salmon is raised in open water to mitigate typical "farm raised" seafood issues. The supplier actually requests that... More

My husband took me here for dinner before going to the movies. It was our anniversary and he brought flowers to the restaurant for them to place on the table, so they were aware that we were celebrating our special day with them. Karen the hostess surprised us with two glasses of champagne with a strawberry in each. Next, a... More

We stopped by here one evening and decided to eat in the outdoor patio. We were seated under a PA speaker. We asked to move tables since they claimed they couldn't turn down the music without affecting the music inside the restaurant. Music was still too loud at farther table but at least reasonable conversation was possible. I had steak... More

We visited with out of town guests and were very disappointed. The service was beyond slow, and it took over 90 minutes between our order and our entrees. The place was busy but not so crowded that 90 minutes was acceptable. One dinner never came. Our meals ranged from flavorless to "just ok." We ordered a birthday dessert selection platter... More

Totally remodeled, we entered and just went "WOW!" What a transformation. They made the restaurant a more casual bar/restaurant setting while eliminating the formal dining room. They serve more casual food. We had grilled calamari which, as in the past, was outstanding. They serve pizza (very good), sandwiches, and about 6-7 dinner entrees. Prices for food and drink are very... More

Ok so it was crowded because of the Jazz Fest but service was slooooow. Our first visit since the new re-opening and not sure I'll be back too soon. Ambiance was very cool but it's the noisiest restaurant I've been. One hr and 50 minutes from order to service. 7 of 8 meals came out and a long pause until... More

Several people in my neighborhood get together once a month and go out for diner. This month was my turn to make the arrangements for 23 people who like to pay separate checks. I called a few places and came up with 2 Vine. After a couple calls and one visit to the restaurant to see the place the owner... More

It's just tragic that the new iteration of 2Vine has destroyed the funky ambience, spunky service and inventive cuisine that once characterized the place. You will love it now if TGIF or Cheesecake Factory decor, and institutionalized service, is your thing. The menu items sound creative but fell flat when executed. The lasagna was dry and burned on the bottom.... More
