About Le Vigne at Montaluce Winery
Food culture is very important to the kitchen at Le Vigne Restaurant, more specifically, local food culture. We believe that food and the sharing of food builds community, especially if the food and wine that is shared is rooted within the community. That is why we not only produce wine from grapes grown in our own vineyard, but grow produce in our own organic garden on the property. What we don’t produce ourselves, we source from the local farms. We want to be able to provide our guests with local, sustainable foods as well as provide the local artisans and farmers an outlet for their hard work. At the beautiful Le Vigne Restaurant, situated high above the vineyards, guests will discover a dedication to honoring the flavors of our region throughout each of the four seasons in a menu that changes regularly to reflect the best of what is available.

Le Vigne at Montaluce Winery Ratings and Reviews

The food was as good as anything you would be served in Atlanta, maybe even better! Potato and leek soup was divine and served with just enough sunflower seeds and a delicious white crumble cheese that when it hit the soup, just melted away. My husband had the filet served on a bed of spinach and twice baked potatoe. His steak came out perfectly cooked and melted in his mouth. I tried the pork tenderloin medallions served with an apple reduction sauce, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. I may have licked the plate!
Needless to say, our wine selection was perfect!!!

Even though there were only four other tables in the restaurant, it took about 40 minutes for 2 medium rare steaks and 2 orders of salmon to arrive at our table, and all the meals arrived luke-warm. One of our guests sent her potato back because it was not hot, and it took about 15 minutes to receive a new one. Would not go again.

We went for a girls' lunch on a Saturday. They opened at 11:00 and we got there about 11:30 for a wine tasting (no reservations were required for the tasting). There were five wines on the tasting and we finished a couple wines, then we took the 20 minute winery tour (free) at noon. We came back to the bar and finished our tasting and went to lunch a little early. Truly a lovely way to spend a couple hours.
The menu had a small or large salad. We ordered the small and asked for chicken on top, (not on the menu) which was delicious.
Restaurant was charming, staff were polite and kind. Prices are a little higher than I would normally spend for lunch, which for me makes it more of a special occasion place.
Tastings ran from $18 - $22 depending on your choice of whites, reds or a mix. Do not miss the white mead wine with notes of honey. It was delicious and unusual.

We went for thanksgiving - no indication it was fixed menu. Arrived early for 645 reservation and told table not ready. We didn't expect it to be so waited in bar area. There were at least 5 tables of 4 that were empty and no one was ever seated at those -so not sure why the wait. After being seated it was another 10 minutes for waitress to come to table and another 5 for her to bring wine menu . She was pleasant and sweet but that was only good thing to say about evening. When the entrees of 1 slice of dry Turkey, grizzly ham, very dry dressing and rolls that were plated upside down arrived only 2of the 4 us were served. There was no explanation until finally someone else came over to explain we had gotten some else's plates - ( the only distinction was the purple orchid on their plates).the desserts were self serve and most were gone at 745 or were being boxed up by the wait staff -presumably to take home. Cake was not edible. This disaster cost 360.00 plus tip for meals, 3 glasses of wine ,1tea, 2 coffees - we will stick to Ruth's Chris for thanksgiving !!! Would never go back again to this one-----and I overlook a lot - but there was nothing acceptable about this experience and food that's worst than a frozen meal

We visited for the Thanksgiving menu. Our party of four was seated a bit later than our reservation time. Service was friendly but not to the highest standard.
Our starter of soup was likely the best part of the meal. Both the pumpkin bisque and fire roasted corn chowder were delicious and were generous portions. Second were salads, also good and I enjoyed the local greens, blue cheese and vinaigrette. The spinach and bacon salad was also enjoyed by our party.
The main course was a plated service of ham, turkey, dressing and two side dishes. Mostly OK however the ham was so salty as to be inedible. None of our group could eat more than a couple of bites. The main did not match the starters in taste or quality.
Dessert was a buffet of various cakes and apple cobbler. A nice ending to the meal.
Our waitress presented the bill without asking for tea or coffee orders which we all wanted. As compensation she provided the warm beverages free of charge.
Overall I would rate the meal just OK and not to the standard of a previous visit. The waitress was inexperienced or not well trained and this is something that should be corrected by management.

Beautiful setting! Great view and unique ambiance. Spent Thanksgiving Day there and still had some color in the trees. We traveled more than an hour to get there and wish the food had been as great as the view. It was good but not extraordinary.

Expensive for what you got. Had to send some of our food back, it was cold. Green beans were not cooked. Food was just mediocre at best. Would not recommend for special dinner. And the biggest thing, THERE WAS NO CRANBERRY SAUCE FOR A THANKSGIVING DINNER.

This was my 4th extremely enjoyable visit! It is a 1.5 hour drive but worth every bit. The food is outstanding !! Always great service! We have dined during a busy time and a slow time and have never been disappointed in the service . We like to do our tasting flights at the table while we enjoy an assortment of meats and cheese. We then usually choose a few bottles to enjoy during our meal. We never feel rushed as we are able to enjoy our surrounding of the beautiful mountains while we enjoy our conversations. I look for reasons to come back and enjoy the wine, food, and atmosphere.

The setting was no less than perfect - a warm Indian Summer afternoon on the terrace. Brooke is a terrific attendant as was all the staff and the food just perfect for lunch. Of course having a glass or two of wine from the vineyard helped as well. I'll be back with more guests as I make the trip from Greenville to Dawsonville ...

I took my small team here for a team outing. My team is spread across Atlanta, NY and SF. I took them to lunch to enjoy the food, ambience of the restaurant, the fabulous wine and the view ! Their feedback was "best team outing ever!"

We always enjoy lunch at Le Vigne but Saturday was a bit odd. We arrived about five minutes late for our 12:30 lunch reservation. The young ladies at the hostess stand assured us it was no problem and told us we would be seated in a picturesque spot by the window if we could just wait for about five minutes. We waited and were indeed seated in about five minutes but not by the window. When we questioned why we couldn't sit at one of the three empty tables by the window, we were first told the hostess was new and "didn't know what she was taking about", then we were told the restaurant was full because all tables were taken for reservations. Huh? We also had a reservation and the three tables along the window sat empty throughout our meal. As we received dessert and coffee at the end of our meal, we looked on as people were seated at the tables along the window. This was very bizarre to us, especially since those tables were ultimately serviced by the same waitstaff that had served us. I'm not sure what was going on and hate to speculate but it didn't feel good. Food was lovely as always.

Me and my fiancé were celebrating our anniversary. Charlie was our outstanding waiter. He asked us if we had ever dined with them before, in which we relied "no". He walked us through the full 3 course menu with what the favorites were from pairings to solo soups and main courses. He definitely knew his stuff! I had never had such wonderful customer service. We ended the night Charlie shook our hands and thanked us for coming in. Whatever this guy is making at this winery definitely isn't enough. He made the dinning experience the best possible.

We had friends in town for a quick "fall" visit. Hubs and I had been to Monteluce for wine tastings, but never got a chance to stay for a meal. Several friends had recommended it, so we made a reservation and took out friends. It was fabulous! We had Brooke as our server and she was amazing. (I hope she trains all of the servers!) she gave us great recommendations as well as fine descriptions of the menu items. Two of us had the pulled pork sandwiches. They were fabulous!!! One had the BLT and he too was a member of the clean plate club, and hubs had the brisket burger. He said it was good. We each had some wine with our meal. (3 Syrahs and a Rose. All were very good.) it was a bit pricey for lunch, but we had wine. Hubs and mine were 60.00 total. Not sure, but I expect our friends' were about the same. I would go back again and again though, because it was delish and the atmosphere was great!

Montaluce Restaurant is the perfect place to go to for an anniversary celebration! We loved it. It is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant and setting. They gave us a free sample of sparkling wine which was splendid. The food was excellent and healthy; my lamb was a bit under cooked and chewy, but otherwise, it was tasty. The Peruvian purple potatoes were a treat as well as the fig sauce for the lamb. Gary, our server did a fantastic job and even took our picture a couple of times with the pretty vineyards in the background.

We have been to LeVigne many times and like to bring friends visiting from out of town as it is different and the food is really good. On this occasion, once we were seated our waiter gave us the menus and asked if we had questions. Several people asked about wines but he could not answer any of the questions. He had someone come to assist and he could not answer any questions either. In the past our servers had some knowledge of the wines. We ordered two cheese trays to go with the wine. They came but the wine did not until we were finished with the cheese. It took forever for our orders to be taken and forever for the food to come. We were told the kitchen was behind. The food was very good and we love the atmosphere, but if this happens again I am not sure we would make the 40 minute drive.

We were on a short vacation to explore the Northeast Georgia wine area. Dinner topped off a delightful day of wine tasting, with a lovely dinner, in a beautiful setting, with an excellent meal including wine from the Montaluce Winery. Service was well paced, food properly prepared, served by well trained wait staff.

ALSO, I meant to write that we had to wait a very long time before our food arrived at our table.
I ate at Montaluce for the first time in August of this year and the food was superb to say the least!! I ate there again for lunch on October 19, 2016 and the food was not good. My friend had the chicken dish. The chicken had skin on it and was on the bone. Not good. My meatless squash entrée was ok.

Because it was our 30th anniversary, we wanted to celebrate in a special place. The servers were great but the food and the presentation were only average.
We felt the lack of lighting on the drive in was unsafe. The location is beautiful.
