Independently owned and operated, Vinnie’s proudly serves Certified Angus Beef in a variety of cuts and sizes, featuring Prime New York Strips, Dry Aged Ribeyes and a Bone-In Filet Mignon exclusive to Vinnie’s. Vinnie’s also offers the freshest seafood available, including our Jumbo Cold Water Lobstertails, classic Italian fare, Farmer’s Market vegetables and homemade desserts. Our display wine cellar houses an extensive selection of wines from around the world and serves as a centerpiece to our intimate and elegant dining room. White linen, vintage leather chairs and sparkling crystal will set the mood for a more than memorable dining experience, no matter what the occasion.

Our covered patio equipped with heaters and ceiling fans offers fabulous outdoor dining nearly year-round. An ever-changing selection of wines by the glass, premium whiskeys and single malt scotches, a yearly contender for Best Martini in the Triangle and a wide array of domestic, imported and specialty beers ensures a libation to suit every palate. Please join us for your next night out and let Vinnie’s Steak House and Tavern become a tradition with you.

My husband and I love Vinnie's! The steaks are the most tender, melt in your mouth, steaks in Raleigh. Love Chef Tom's seasonal soups, desserts and vegetable sides, local farm fresh produce makes them even better! The wine list is extensive and wonderful. The service is flawless every time and I agree with the previous review that describes the atmosphere as a "Rat Pack" feel, I wanted to wrap the review up with my favorite things, but it's so hard! Love the seasonal desserts, fall menu's Butternut Squash Soup (is possibly my favorite thing), Gouda Potatoes are delish, wine tasting dinners are fabulous, the petite filet, and Tuesdays. Don't really want to share, but this restaurant deserves the review.

Its a "mini" Smith and Wollensky/Mortons type place. Rat pack pictures, dark paneled walls, etc....a little small but tables are not right on top of each other. Expensive, $40 - $50 for a steak and the sides are all al la carte so with a beer and/or glass of wine along with a side, appetizer, you are looking at $70 per person most likely. Its a good steak and if you are in the area and looking for that type of meal, Vinnies is a good choice
