We have gone to this resturant many times and it never disapoints. The food is excellent, we really enjoy tasters night and also Wednesday night Pasta Bar is a great way to try all kinds of different options for great prices. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is great. If you are looking for a resturant that knows how to please their customers this is a gem and you should try it. They also offer take out which we regularly use and the food is just as good when you take it home.

We have been to the The Vines several times and have not been disappointed once. Whether we go alone, with friends or family we have had the same experience each time, delicious food, generous portions(always hot) and excellent service. The desserts are to die for especially the lemon poppy seed cheesecake with raspberries.
I will definitely be going back again!

We had the pleasure of getting together with a few other couples for a well deserved night out. This was our first time eating in but we have had the pleasure in the past of taking out from their menu (they make the best pizza we have found in metro and will add fresh grilled vegetables!). It was a wonderful experience! The ambiance was wonderful and quite conducive to being able to not only enjoy the meal but each others company... and the meal it was delicious! Everything was cooked to perfection and we enjoyed it so much we all decided on dessert. Again it was "to die for". The staff was very corteous and friendly and were always checking to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I am so glad that we chose to have our night out here and we are all planning on making it a regular monthly thing. I hear the tasters night is out of this world. I would give this restaurant and its staff two thumbs up and five stars. You wont be dissapointed. This is now my favorite restaurant in Nova Scotia.

I have eaten at many of the restaurants in Halifax and Dartmouth and I keep coming back to Vines why? because of the homemade, made to order entrees and the homemade desserts. So many restaurants these days have "prefab" everything, but not at The Vines you can guarantee your order will be homemade from start to finish. Hans even makes his own bread served hot before your meal. Desserts are all homemade and to die for! Real cream and garlic are the norm for the pastas and Hans makes his own Caesar salad dressing which has won many awards in Halifax. The portions are very generous and always served hot. The trip to Dartmouth is well worth the time to eat at this one of a kind restaurant where everything you eat has been hand made by the best chef in Halifax Dartmouth. Give it a try!! You will keep coming back!!
