Tuesday night special birthday and this meal was so so special. A quiet atmosphere but this is what we wanted. Hadn't been here for a long time so decided to go for the 7 course degustation. Every dish was delicious and we couldn't fault the careful wine matching. The staff were pleasant and extremely helpful with our questions. Now that we have tried so many of the dishes we will be back very soon for an "a la carte" dinner.

We dined at Vinnies last week as we were celebrating my husbands birthday. It was our first time dining here and we will certainly be coming again.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We had the degustation menu which was adapted for my husband who has a shellfish allergy.
I really enjoyed the cocktails we had before dinner too.
I would certainly recommend the degustation menu for anyone who is looking for a fine dining experience with a twist.

My sister and I went for dinner to celebrate our birthday. We had a perfect night. The food was faultless, the service was above what you can expect of a fine dining restaurant and we got a dessert with happy birthday written on it and a candle. Marie looked after us and she is definitely an asset to the company! Thank you for the awesome experience and the perfect sisters night out.

Great food and wine selection. Fast and friendly service who provided a great commentary for every dish. Nice atmosphere however a little quiet on the night we were there. Felt like you could hear a pin drop despite the restaurant being mostly full.

A group of us went to Vinnies for dinner recently and had the best time. Service was attentive and exceptionally knowledgable but above all the food is probably one of the best meals we have had in a restaurant ....it will truly restore your faith in cooking...... And definitely a meal you would struggle to do at home .Geoff Scott, owner and chef has his finger on the pulse and is at the top of his game. If you are a foodie and want a unique experience in Auckland then this is it. Wine list is full of personality also with the established sitting alongside some hidden treasures .Long live Vinnies
