After reading the negative reviews I felt compelled to give a review of my own. I live in Fort Lauderdale
and every time I come to Orlando I eat at Vine. The atmosphere is phenomenal and the food is a...mazing and so is the wait staff. And you can never go wrong when you get bacon instead of bar nuts. One review said the calamari was horrible. I couldn't disagree more. I extremely hesitant to order the octopus but since I was told it's one of the house Specialtie s I ordered it. I loved it and everyone at my table said it was the best octopus they've ever had. I had the tuna tartare which was so fresh it melted in my mouth. All of our main courses were delicious. Lamb chops were exceptiona l. Lobster mac and cheese and creamed corn we're awesome sides. The only negative thing I have to say about the place is the bartender. Female with long dark hair. I don't know if she was having a bad day but she was not friendly and when she made my martini she had to remake it and used to shake her that was not clean properly so I was given a mojito mix with martini. I've eaten at the best restaurant s in Miami Fort Lauderdale New York and this ranks right up there with them
Possibly the most amazing Chilean Seabass I’ve ever tasted. Moist, beautifull
y cooked and seasoned. Fillet mignon was excellent, just the right temperatur e. Truffle mash potato gorgeous. The tuna tart...are app was delicious too. Got to say I’ve had better sauce au poivre though. Great selection of wines and the service is impeccable .
Our waiter began very defensive,
kind of really jerky. No personalit y. Then, when the food came out, l got hot fries dumped all over me and down my dress, burnt my boob. I'm ok, and they did a lot... to try to redeem themselves , hence the reason l gave a 2- otherwise, it would have been a 1. The food was really good!
n for 8pm. Waited an hour until we finally got sick of waiting and went to Ruths Chris who easily accommodat ed our party of 8 on a Friday night without reservatio n. Management made litt...le effort to seat us or make right for having us wait so long. Convenient ly found a table for us when we told them we were leaving to Ruths Chris' next door. Never made any effort to make up their terrible customer service so we left. First and last time there. This dr Phillips resident will never be back.
I think it has great ambience and our waiter was great. The food however was not the best. The calamari was the worst I've had at the upscale establishm
ents in restaurant row, and the the filet mignon... was not cooked as ordered. I would not recommend this restaurant , especially with Eddie V's and Fleming's nearby. If you are going to hear the jazz it's great, other than that try one of the better restaurant s.

Went with large party....w
e had good service but the timing was awful...it was an hour or more between appetizers , salad and entree. We were not impressed given the caliber of the restaurant and won't... return. The food was delicious but all around experience was not worth trip from Tampa
There were nine of us in our party. We were never given menus but asked to order, anything we asked for was forgotten,
5 steaks cooked incorrectl y, 2 meals sent back, bills rang up wrong, manager had ...to come to the table, one person was sick in the bathroom after eating. We all decided we will never come back!!
Made a reservatio
n but still had to wait to be seated. Was not impressed by the food and there were two desserts offered for the magical dining and they were out of the one that everyone wanted.

Now we have a favorite place to go out for fine dining, great wine and live jazz. Tony was very attentive to our needs, the service is exceptiona l. We even had the creme brule and it was decorated really beautiful and the flavor,,Wo w!!..Thank you Vines for making our night memorable. Thanks Angelica for making our special creme brule.
My daughter chose this restaurant
for her 18th Birthday family dinner. The environmen t was quite enjoyable, the staff was very attentive and my steak was the “bomb”. I will definitely return.
Great food, the steak was amazing, the mac and cheese was good (needed a little more flavor) but all in all great experience
, great music great wait staff.
