The Vineyard Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I wanted to take my wife to an upscale Italian Restaurant for Valentines Day even though it wasnt close to my house. Open Table called in Vineyard Restaurant when it was actually Vineyard Family Restaurant. If i knew that I would have picked a different restaurant. I was the only person not wearing jeans. We were put at a very small table in the basement right next to somebody else. It was very loud and cold. The waitress couldnt remember my wife wanted unsweet tea and came back several times to double check and she still got raspberry tea. The service was very slow even just getting tea refills. They dropped our rolls on the floor. The food was ok but not worth the higher price we were paying. The spaghetti side was in a 3 inch bowl. My wife had to ask for parmesan cheese and they brought her a smalll bowl and a spoon . We wanted to try a different restaurant than our favorite which is awesome which is Biagigos but i failed my wife for Valentines Day. One Star.
The food was very good and the Ambiance was nice. We went with friends of ours on New Years Eve. My wife and I have been there before but they other couple has not. We all enjoyed what we got. It was nice that they still offered their regular menu even on the holiday.
My friend and I had dinner celebrating the holiday season and friendship. We like the Vineyard because it is friendly and relaxing and the food is fantastic! The veal dish I ordered melted in your mouth. We were not rushed and were able to take our time ordering and eating as we were also catching up and conversing. The service is excellent. I think it is the best Italian restaurant in my estimation in the area.
I have been going to the Vineyard for 20+ years. It is comforting to always find it the same. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is delicious! My husband lived in Rome for three years and finds the food to be authentic. We live in Ohio now but make a point to return to the Vineyard each time we return to PA.
Our dining experience at The Vineyard is always excellent! It's a great place to take our out of town guests. The food is always amazing! Our server was great also. We have had him several times and he is amazing. He is server #10. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience!
This restaurant was ok - nothing special here. The food tasted good, but I though the atmosphere was dreary. We made reservations at this place and our table was in the basement. It looked like we were in a banquet hall with about 10 tables (all the same size). No decor, quiet and a little creepy. Would definitely try a different restaurant if I come back to this city.
This is the second time only this restaurant was available on Open Table during a big university weekend. So, we went.
Don't get me wrong, the food is above average, but there is nothing special here. It's hard to get past the dingy, musty, old decor. Every now and then a business has to invest in new digs. It is well past time they take out a loan and improve the physical plant.
This is a neighborhood restaurant. Pretty much a checkered table cloth Italian, service was good, not elegant. Some dishes were left on the table and not cleared for dessert.
The experience is like going to a neighborhood diner. The good news, for those that have a tight budget, it is relatively inexpensive.
I am new to the area and found it on Open Table. Went by reviews, When I drove up I was not sure as from the outside it looked sketchy. Don't let that deter you.
The people are really friendly and the food delicious. I was very happy with my meal and the experience.
Will go back again.
This restaurant serves authentic Italian food in a fun atmosphere. The food is consistently fantastic each and every visit we have made over the past several years.the cold antipasto for an appetizer serves two. We love any of the veal dishes. The veal is hand butchered by the owner/chef and the freshness is apparent with the first bite. Desserts are made in house and are not to be missed. Seriously, just go. You won't be disappointed.
We dined at the Vineyard early Saturday evening with company from out of state. Part of the group had more driving later that evening, hence the earlier time. This was the first time for the out of town group and they enjoyed the meal. The staff had a booster seat for the 1 + year old but he preferred mom and dad. He seemed to enjoy the food as well as watching all the people. We were able to enjoy a relaxing, delicious meal without being rushed. Our friend treated us as she wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything from the salad and soup to the chicken and veal dishes as well as the stuffed shells dish ending with desserts; at our table chocolate cake and tartuffos were most delicious.
