“Great food again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Vineyard Bistro is our favorite place in the village. Indoors or out the choice is yours unless they are very busy. The food is wonderful and they will adjust for allergies, etc. I had the beet salad, which is one of my favorites, and asked them to add a piece of salmon to it. It was a nice size piece and perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed the surf and turf, and of course, the French onion soup.
We have come here many times with our children and grandchildren. Everyone is always satisfied. Tucked away behind Corkscrew, it is always a great spot to go. The staff is very attentive.

“Romantic setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed both the beautiful patio and delicious meal. This is a family run business, so expect a leisurely pace of service, we never felt rushed. We chose the calamari appetizer to start, super fresh with yummy dipping sauce. Caesar salad and spinach salads are quite large, so splitting one is best. The fish options were found to be plentiful and delicious, as they receive daily deliveries from Monterey Wharf. Wine options feature local wineries, which, as a local made me happy! Give this place a try for either lunch or dinner, you will enjoy it.

“DON'T PASS THIS ONE BY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

So often this lovely restaurant is passed by because it isn't as well known. The food, their wine selection, outside seating, and the family service is wonderful. It isn't as glamorous, but the food and the setting is every bit as good. Do yourself a favor. It is right behind the Corkscrew and Georgis wine tasting room.

“Cozy Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We love the piano bar that is open to guest willing to sing out of the showers. This adds to your eating and drinking enjoyment, along with the paito with heaters for you added comfort. What a delight to have such a variety in a restaurant visit.
