My husband and I used to eat out ALOT.....but since we had a baby these trips have been few and far between. We had a date night planned and decided to hit up Fire and Vine; we went here once a couple of years back and had a nice experience. I noticed the place had changed a bit since the last time we were there, but it was for the better; the atmosphere was very nice and it didn't seem as empty as last time. The one and only negative occurred at the start of the meal, and that was when the first bottle of wine we selected was out of stock....no biggie, but it would have been nice to know first. Then, the 2nd bottle was also out of stock. I was starting to get pretty annoyed; I am not a wine person but this was taking forever! Finally the Manager suggested a bottle they DID have, and offered to discount it to the price we would have initially paid for the first bottle, which was totally fine. For our app, we opted for the shrimp skewer, which was really great. As for entrees, I had the Filet, which was cooked perfectly, and my husband had the Short Rib which was to die for.....we both honestly thought it was one of the best things we had ever eaten. Sure, we don't get out alot, but this meal was amazing. My filet was wonderful as well, but not much could compare to his meal. We finished off with creme brulee and coffee, and overall, while it was around $150 after tip, we both agreed this night was totally worth the money, something we don't often say. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone based on the dishes we had.
