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!!

There are many great restaurants on and around Hilton Head Island, but we believe that Vine is the best. Our last visit, which was our fourth, was a birthday celebration. Our party had the Scallops, Pear & Gorgonzola Ravioli, Lasagna, Roasted Carrot & Godiva Chocolate Soup and the Bacon Sundae. They were all outstanding dishes. The Scallops were melt in your mouth delicious and the soup was like no soup I had ever tasted. The service was over the top and Steve (owner) made us feel very welcome. The whole evening was a most enjoyable dining experience. Thanks to Steve and his outstanding staff.

Vine is our restaurant of choice when we feel like "treating" ourselves. That was our reason for choosing Vine this past Saturday evening. We tried the "tasting menu" with the option of having the restaurant choose the wine pairings. The champagne whetted our appetites for a unique dining experience. The Brie soup was creamy and delicious without being cloyingly rich. Our appetizer was a truffle linguini. Each was paired with a different wine selection (a tasting size). My scallop entree and my husband's baby veal entree were both delicious and served with appropriate accompanying dishes. A Chardonnay was selected to accompany both and it was full bodied enough to work well. Kudos to all!!!

Exceptional food! We enjoyed the truffle and brushetta appetizers (best we have ever had), Ossa Buca (I have had none better), and blackened grouper (could have used more taste), and finally the Oregon fruit medley - delicious, and I tried the vanilla bean ice cream and bacon sauce (a unique and enjoyable taste). You absolutely need reservations which we made a month out from out of town. Not the most efficient process but worth the 3 times back and forth leaving messages.

Hear Ye Hear Ye finally a critical review to appreciate and one that typifies a 5 star reviewers though process.

Notice that although pleased with most all elements of the evening, this reviewer commented that his grouper could have had more flavor, but still gave a 5 start for the remaining elements of his evening. Not "OMG tasteless grouper, no salt on table" etc. simply "could have used more flavor" You cannot underestimate the appreciation I have for you.

Contrary to a 3 star reviewer whom could have enjoyed the evening of a lifetime, but felt the room was too dark, and the music too loud. BAM! a 3 star would have been dished out with glee.

Rather than reflecting personal preference , this reviewer clearly wants to enjoy life, focusing on the elements of success and simply providing a glancing comment without being punitive.

You Sir, or Madame, have revived restored my faith!

Bravo!

Pricey but worthwhile. We are planning on going back for next Valentine. Very good presentation, service. Food was exceptional. One of HHI's best.
