We had a horrible experience at The Vines (new name for Zali Mongolian Grill) on Valentines Day 2014-it was a 2.5 hour long ordeal that I never want to repeat. First, it took a good 45 minutes to order as we had questions about the very limited menu and servers kept disappearing on us as they had no clue what each dish was and had to ask questions. They also seemed more interested in cleaning tables at a pretty empty restaurant than waiting on customers. When we finally got our food an hour and a half later, it was absolutely tasteless and bland-very disappointing for the price. Then it took another half an hour to get someone to get us a check-the lady said she would be back to collect it and then proceeded to go behind the counter and just stood there staring at us. When we finally got up, she said she forgot!. Worst Valentines Day ever! And I have to take issue with them calling themselves a winery-they serve wine from other places, they don't make their own wine and they don't even stock any wine from our great NC wineries. And don't expect the free wine tasting they offer-you can try two wines tops. Steer clear of this place and save yourself a lot of frustration.

This restaurant has changed owners and has a new name: The Vines Winery and Mediterranean Fuzion Grill. http://www.thevineswinery.com/ We ate here this evening and the food and service was good. They still serve Mongolian style bowls of food -- you choose your ingredients from a list of meats, vegetables, sauces, and rice or noodles. They also have daily specials like steak, seafood, and Italian entrees.

Fresh and delicious, great service. Lots of fresh vegetables and meats. Terrific sauces. We eat here about 2 times a month. Love the rice noodles. New owners as of Oct. hope they don't change the food. Looking forward to my next visit.
