About Le Vigne at Montaluce Winery
Dahlonega, GA 30533
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

Hostess was rude and although the place was mostly empty left us waiting for about 15 minutes before we could be seated. We went for lunch and there was no lunch menu so not many options for a lighter meal. The wife ordered a havarti grilled cheese and soup which was one of the only lighter options. At $17 it was very overpriced for a very marginal meal. I had the braised short rib and grits. The grits were so salty I could barely eat them, and I think it's hard to oversalt grits. The short rib was dry and rough, which should also be hard to do considering it is a fattier cut. The waitress we had was pleasant which was the only good thing about our meal. The restaurant is pretty and has beautiful views but I would not go back. For $70 with one glass of wine, I've had much better meals for $30.

A grand time for our 25th wedding anniversary, taste and presentation of food was superior from appetizer to dessert and excellent wines to complemented each dish selected.
Attendant offered excellent suggestions and answered all of our questions in detail and volunteered to snap pictures as our evening progressed.
Even when the monsoon was pouring outside the atmosphere inside with the flickering fireplace was liken unto a well read novel. We danced to one of our favorite tunes.

I love this restaurant and the food and ambiance are great. We had a great server who understood and explained all the dishes to perfection. The food was great as always! We love their in-house Chardonnay! Our server was extremely attentive, knowlegdable and was very respective.
The only thing they could improve on is that I had black pants on and they only had white table napkins - no option was offered (but I also did not ask). I hope they will add this option in the future.
Thanks and we had another amazing lunch!

Wow! The view is amazing, the service is impeccable and the food is delicious! We were there just this past weekend and had an amazing time during the brunch service. We were wowed from the time we walked in! It truly was a highlight of our girls' weekend!

We enjoyed our visit and the service was wonderful. Our only regret is that we didn't arrive until after the sun had set... the place is gorgeous and I would to see it all in daylight. I would recommend visiting this place with some time to spare. :)

Had a great prenewyears dinner with relatives from out of town. Everyone loved their meals and particularly like the rabbit. It was AWESOME WITH NO overly gamey taste. I even got to thank the chef for his excellent cooking. We definitely will be back. Was a little pricey on the wine.

Excellent experience! Booking online with open table, the venue followed up on the reservation by email.
Our Party of ten, were warmly welcomed and enjoyed Shared starters, wine, individual appetizers, entrees from Trout, Lamb, Filet, pork tenderloin, and finale of incredible desserts.
Highlights were the wine, service, ambience and food. Everything prepared as ordered and arrived in perfect syncs.
Capped our evening off, by stopping in the gift shoppe.
Beautiful venue, comfortable seating. Spectacular sunset views. Prices were on point and in my opinion comparable with Cabernet or Rays, in Alpharetta.

We selected Montaluce to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Wonderful view seated over the Vineyard. Very nice meals and a great server. Georgia wines are maturing and let Vigne has a very nice selection of local and California blends. Highly recommended for special events.

I read the reviews on yelp and open table which were mixed but we had an amazing experience. Our waiter Jose was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable on the menu. He was very accommodating to our 2 year old and made me feel we were welcome with him though the ambiance was a little nicer than we would normally take him to. Would definitely go again when we come back to town!!

We usually do a December lunch each year (three couples). Was astounded at the increase in the price the wine both by the glass and the bottle. As for the food, the chef changed the soup from the time I ordered to the time it was delivered. When you are expecting a pumpkin bisque and you get a spinach apple...not hot and very unappetizing. The waiter gave me the chance to order something else so I did get the tomato basil that is usually served with the gilled cheese sandwich. One couple ordered the pulled pork sandwich, the bread was quite soggy and the server dropped the French fries just before reaching the table. Had to wait for more to be prepared. Lunch for the 6 of us was over $400 with tip. Will find somewhere else to do our December luncheon. Not worth the price.

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.

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.
