“Sitting outside was lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We went for lunch to Vineyard Bistro (6 Pilot Rd., Carmel Valley, CA 93924, tel. 831-659-5020, web: www.vineyard-bistro.net). Our server, John, was good. He reminded Audre of Matthew Broderick for some reason. He was good and gave us advice on other restaurants in the Monterey area to try. We had one special of the day: sand dabs served grill and sitting on a salad with mango salsa and apples and oranges ($15) which we shared. It was plenty of food for the two of us. The restaurant served bread. Dimitri had a Line Sauvignon Blanc ($8) and thought it was good. We spent $24.96 and enjoyed sitting in the garden. We spent $24.96 plus tip.

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Breakfast was very good, outdoor patio was lovely and the ambiance was nice. The service was a little slow, but I didn't mind as I had all morning to enjoy the surroundings.

This is our favorite restaurant in Carmel Valley. We did not have a booking on a busy night, but the manager went out of his way to accommodate us. The serves was excellent and the food delicious.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us so we gave it a shot. We had the Lamb chops, spinach salad, shrimp bisque and garlic/blue cheese fries and everything was excellent. The waiter was super friendly and attentive and the food was excellent!
