Very disappointing night. The service was subpar. Our main server came over only twice during dinner. Food was so so. Steak was bland and the special "bolognese" was tasteless and the meat was tough.

Great food, great jazz
We went for the life jazz and good good and were not disappointed. My steak was perfectly cooked despite being nearly 2" thick, and my wife loved her fish. Appetizers were a bit large but the dessert was the perfect size, and delicious. Good selection of wines by the glass. And the service was outstanding - there when you needed them but otherwise unobtrusive, letting you enjoy the food and the music.

Octopus appetizer was amazing!! We also had oysters and scallops that were delicious. The staff was phenomenal and attentive. My new favorite restaurant in Orlando by a long shot!!
Happy Hour at Vines
A great happy hour during the week and an amazing cheese board! Live music in the bar and we enjoyed an extremely well prepared burger. They have a variety of cocktails to choose from also if you're not a wine lover!

The lobster stuffed with crab was delicious and well appreciated.
Good Date Night
The manager was very helpful and nice. We could tell he was compensating for the waitress that was having a tough time managing the tables. Great Fresh Food at a high price point. Would go back on special occasion or date night.
Farewell Dinner for Family
Brought four guests here for a farewell dinner since they were ending a week long vacation at my house in Orlando. Vines is my favorite restaurant in the area because of the food, the wine list, the service and the music and I wanted to treat my family to something special. I usually get beef here but this time we all ordered either sea bass or chicken. Both choices were nicely prepared. I also asked our server to have the chef prepare a special dessert for us which was very well done. Finally, we had a nice dessert wine to finish our meal. Vines did their typical fine job.

Vines offered a combination of quality and relaxation with a twist of delectable. The sea bass was seared to perfection and my sides were delicious. I would definitely visit again.
Very good; room to do better
This is basically an upscale steakhouse; could be more. Food was very good. Service was a little too good - 4-5 people "checking" on us constantly, a few particularly chatty (we were there to celebrate an anniversary; at least some private time, please!). Every bottle we asked for on published wine list was substituted, either year or grape. Update list or warn at time of order is better. Although list is extensive, it has no TOC, making comparisons difficult. Warm, dark wood atmosphere is nice. Could barely hear music from our table & jazz is one of the "set-aparts" of this place. If this restaurant wants to be one of the best, it has to up its game. P.S. Our "primary" server, Al, was terrific; attentive but unobtrusive. Hint, hint.
horrible reception people
I had a reserve to dinner with clients and the Acomodating people sit us 1 hour later Never will reserve again. The musicians people It is the only thing worth wue.
This place was recommended by a business client that went there the night before we did. Beautiful food, beautiful waitresses and bartenders. Love it. My only very very small issue was they had a 2008 Amarone wine listed and they only had 2011. Now the 2011 was great and we had 2 bottles. This small attention to detail will make them unmatched in the area. I highly suggest everyone to go there. You won't be disappointed
Great local option
My husband and I were visiting Orlando for a few days and wanted to try some local fare. I found Vines on Open Table. The dinner was excellent. The service was very good. I recommend it and will go back again when we're in town.

We always dine at Vines every time that we are Orlando and we have never been disappointed. We look forward to our next visit.
Absolutely Awful !!!!
Absolutely Awful !!!! appointing experience in your restaurant last night where we booked to celebrate my wife's special 60th Birthday. We were seated by the bar area behind the reception desk where it was noisy with crowds of people pushing past all the time pushing our chairs and interrupting us - not a pleasant experience. Twice we had to ask a group of men if they could quiet down and at least moderate their very bad language and they were very offensive - We mentioned this to a member of your staff who agreed that it was not acceptable - but did nothing about it... We enjoyed the food generally , However our celebrations had to be cut short and were spoilt....... My wife was so upset. Yours T.Hull I have written the above direct to the establishment who have not bothered to respond
Moms Birthday Dinner
I hosted my mothers birthday here and the manager Alex and staff made her night amazing!! They made her and her friends feel like they were queens. I can't thank them enough for their over the top customer service! Amazing food, service, and ambiance!
Vine's is a classic, traditional steak house from the old days. A modern menu made this a wonderful place for a special occasion with my wife.
Not worth it
Everything was great except for the food. The twin tenderloins are just like the cheap twin packs you get at wal mart for 10 bucks. The high prices commanded do not reflect in the quality of food. Although the service was very good, overall we were all disappointed in the food quality. You have certain expectations when you pay $50 for a steak, and the Vines did not meet those expectations.
Too loudy, too expensive.
We went on Sunday. It was very busy but too much loudy. The menu was very expensive. I dont if they changed it because of Valentines day. Fact: without alcoholic beverages, no desserts, no appetizers, only two people, 55USS per person. I think I have many other good options at Sand Lake!
I'd just stick to the bar.

It was ok, nothing special compared to other places in the area to eat as far as service. Parking is a chore and the Vines valet was never around. It's unfortunate that the overall experience of the place was bad and the quality of the food was excellent.
Great special occasion and date night restaurant!
My wife and I went for a special night out. The wagyu beef was amazing. The wine selection was outstanding. This has become our favorite special occasion spot in Orlando.
We took some clients of us to the Vines because of all the great reviews. We have 2 separate reservations 8 people for one and 4 people for the other one. The 8 people have a better service than our other group of 4 but neither one of us was impressed with the place or the food. Some of the fillets came out overcooked. I'll recommend to the management to hire more waiters when they had full evenings. There was too much noise between the waiters telling each other where to go and the loud music. This place will be good for fun evening with friends or for a romantic evening but I'm still not sure I'd recommend the food.
Very Loud! Taken
I recently brought a group of 20 for a business dinner. The seating around the long table was uncomfortably tight. The service was only fair for two reasons. (1) There were not enough servers bringing the food from the kitchen, so that those served first had to wait up to 10 minutes for the rest of the table. (2) We had ordered a $125 wine at the recommendation of the sommelier, however they continued to fill everyone 's glasses without asking me, the host, if I was ok with bringing more bottles - as I have experienced with other restaurants where I have taken large group. The tab ended up to be about $3,750, before tip, with at least a third of that being the wine.
Not quite up to par
I was not that happy with our experience at Vines. Was super bowl Sunday so the place was pretty empty. Took forever for our food to come out. When it did, was not what I expected. The seafood that we ordered was good, no issues there. However, I had ordered a filet and it came out barely luke warm. They tried to reheat it but how can you reheat it effectively without over cooking the meat. They offered to take it back a second time to reheat and rather than risk getting a piece of leather I decided to choke it down as my wife was already mostly finished with her meal. I figure if you are paying almost $40 for a piece of meat it should be done perfectly. It wasn't. Manager comp'ed the steak but having my wife eat by herself was essentially no fun. Should have gone to Ruth's Chris next door.
Impecable Food and Service
Valet parking; Happy Hour bar scene is a must. Natalie, our gracious bartender was more than accommodating. Our dinner was exceptional with the staff led by Brent, making us feel like VIPs. The steaks were prepared with perfection. Vines is a must place to go when we are in Orlando.

Finally found the restaurant with a bone marrow in the menu! + grilled octopus BINGO! So delicious! But I was a lil bit disappointed with a meat, overpriced and not THAT good
