Description: The Vine features elegant dining in an country setting. Diners may choose outside patio tables or dine inside with a “chef’s table” view of the kitchen. Fine dining cuisine is individually prepared for each guest from fresh ingredients using local produce whenever possible. Stunning views of the surrounding orchard and the serene Walla Walla river valley and in the evening, moon lit and starry nights, provide a very romantic setting for your dining experience.Our chef is Nathan Carlson. His specialty is traditional food with a modernist twist. It is inventive and tasty. It is not unusual to have guest's comment, "I have tasted anything that good."

The food was interesting. Presented beautifully and was delicious. We took 2.5 hours to eat our 7 courses and enjoyed every moment of it. Don't go if you are looking for a quick meal. This type of food is meant to be savored and enjoyed!

“5 Stars...at least”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Chef Nathan prepared a great seven course meal for our anniversary. The dessert plate had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate sauce. Very special touches from a very special restaurant. The menu had many great choices to select from for a pre-fixe menu and all the courses were equally delicious.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Drove from Walla Walla while on wine tasting trip. Worth the 30 mins. You basically are eating in owners personal dining room. Server a little inexperienced but very friendly and tried very hard. Food was fantastic with wine pairings. Could be more liberal with pours. Great view. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your comments about the drive. Yes we are 25 miles or 30 minutes from Walla Walla. The drive is not unpleasant and the location is beautiful. I think it important to note that if we were a large restaurant located in town, we could not provide the same experience in terms of view and intimacy you will experience each time you come to The Vine. Our exceptional quality of dining is a function of our commitment to a small intimate experience for every guest. Being a short distance from town allows us to maintain a model of extraordinary service and quality to a small number of guests. Our head chef hand preps, prepares, delivers, and explains every food course to the guests. Only the wine and drinks are served by the waitress. For such a unique experience, the short drive becomes part of the charm.

“Gourmet, Gourmet, Gourmet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We have stayed at Cameo Heights several times and always enjoyed the food, but new chef Nathan has elevated the restaurant to big city gourmet! Watch your food being prepared as you enjoy a glass from an amazing list of fine wines, then have Nathan elegantly plate it and deliver it personally! Everything is delicious and beyond anything available in all southwest Washington. If you stay at the mansion be sure to have dinner there!

Delicious food. Gorgeous romantic bedroom. An oasis of luxury. We came here on the Mother's Day weekend and it was the perfect way to spend the weekend with my wife of 25 years.
