Description: We are a dark cramped restaurant located in a strip mall in Coligny Plaza. Our music loud, the lighting uncomfortably low ,making it hard to read your menu, large taper candles provide minimal illumination and drip on your table. The staff will explain our dishes and ingredients in excruciating detail, and outdoor seating is in a parking lot with a view of NOTHING. Service is sub standard on a good night and our food ordinary at best. If this sounds appetizing then we would love you to join us for a memorable culinary journey. Our Chefs have lived throughout the world, our 400+ bottle wine list is almost all small boutique and rated wines. We work as a team and take pride in meeting and exceeding every guests expectation. Dress is club casual and no children under 14 PS we are not an Italian Restaurant!!

“The best! Could not have been a better dining experience!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We just completed one of our most memorable dining experiences at Vine. For it to be 5 stars the key is "experience". The food, service, ambiance, wines (vine) were exceptional. This is a rather small establishment which adds to the charm: you really feel that you are special and not part of a crowd. We were first warmly greeted by Steve, the owner. We thank Nicole for a most pleasurable service (took a picture with her). The acorn squash soup with a hint of almond was exceptional. The veal special was as advertised - "special". My wife had the tomato caprese - nicely done. We passed on desert but were told Steve's wife did the baking at home. So book in advance for a memorable experience.

“Excellent wine and food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Recommended this restaurant by a local and visited with a group of 6. Difficult to get a reservation and packed on arrival. All good signs.
Bustling frendly atmosphere with knowledgeable staff and owner. You can bring a good bottle of wine but share a glass with the owner who is engaging and willing to extend your experience in italian wines! Wonderful choice of good fish, meat and pasta. I had to go for linguini with truffle cream sauce and the Osso Bucco. Tried friend's lasagne - may be I should have had that - too! Brought back memories of a similar meal in a restaurant on the bank of the River Tiber in Rome many years ago. I would have taken any of the wonderful selection of deserts but forced the table to try the tiramasu. Yum, yum. One of teh best Italian dining experiences in the States!
Anyone visiting Hilton Head has to put this restaurant top of their bucket list.
Coligny Plaza at 1 Forest Beach Drive, If in town now, call (843) 686-3900!

“Five Star Food!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The food in this tiny little restaurant in Hilton Head, South Carolina is unbelievable! I can't remember having tastier food anywhere, They grow many of their own vegetables and of course buy local. This week I had the back grouper prepared with miso and it wax fantastic. Hubby had the ravioli with pears and gorgonzola and he loved that has well. I have had it before and it was delish but a little rich for my taste, but I normally find gorgonzola too rich. If they had half portions, I would probably go for it. The place is very small and some have found it uncomfortable but they have now enclosed a porch and the seating on the porch isn't tight at all? Steve, the owner is delightful and seems to be on site all the time. I wouldnt go without reservations.

“An excellent Meal”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

After reading about Vine we decided to give them a try. We both had fantastic meals. The employees were very attentive and helpful. Even with the outdoor seating the restaurant is very small. Due to the small size, reservations can be difficult to get. Call as far in advance as possible.

“Looking for a Fantastic Experience?”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Should your travels take you to Hilton Head, S.C., beg, borrow or steal a reservation at Vine at Coligny Plaza at 1 Forest Beach Drive for a truly outstanding culinary experience. Your gracious host, Steve, will make you feel that this fine establishment was created just for you. He is real and genuine and the food is truly outstanding. We sampled the caprese tower that was outstanding along with the beets that were made in heaven. I had the blackened grouper while my wife feasted on the osso buco. Both were beyond description and prepared to perfection.Should you arrive early, chat with the lovely Paula at the bar and ask for Eddy as your waiter. The entire staff is superb so no matter who takes care of you it will be professionally executed. Reservations a must!
