Very very expensive. Mains start at $30. Knocking it off the list unfortunately. The service was great but the food just didn't compare to the price. It would be fine for $20 under but there is just no value for money

This was my 4th visit to Vine and now my last
The ambience is pretty average, the bar area slightly above being tatty.
The food is good not fabulous but the prices for a suburban cafe/ restaurant are not justifiable...basically what they can get away with.
The staff were quite good but Vine has pretensions it doesn't deserve...chop 30% off the prices and it may look reasonable.

Thank Peter P

Vine has a delightful indoor/outdoor street bistro feel, perfect for warm summer evenings. It offers a nice wine menu, although we stuck with prosecco. We tried the tagliatelle with shrimp, mussles, squid, and scallops, the quail entree with porcini and feta risotto, and a nice rocket (arugula) salad. All were excellent and the service was perfect. I was impressed that the pasta was the right match for the seafood. It seemed fresh and homemade and was cooked exactly al dente. We would go back.

We visited Brisbane for the Australia Day weekend and did some research on restaurants, looking for a good place to eat at on the Sunday. We were most surprised to find that most decent establishments close on a Sunday. Fortunately, Vine Restaurant is open and we even managed to make an internet reservation. We are happy to report that Vine Restaurant saved us from leaving Brisbane with an opinion that Brisbane is possibly a backwater city on Sundays and far from having an international city classification.
Vine Restaurant has a lovely ambience and has very friendly and efficient staff. The Italian style cuisine is topnotch and the choice is quite adequate. I won’t go into the specifics of what we ate, but suffice to say the food quality was very high, being fresh and very well presented. Overall a superb experience and highly recommended.

Friendly staff with good menu and tasty food. The pasta with bugs and crab was tasty. The truffle mashed potato was creamy and perfectly seasoned and the vegetable side was cooked well with a decent quantity. We finished the meal with cheese; more biscuits/bread was needed. The cheese was perfect but the rest of the platter was a little ordinary. The italian wines complemented the meal. There is a decent range of wine by the glass and a good range of bottled wines. Will definitely return to try other menu items.
