First things first. Be sure this movie theater validates your parking ticket if your car is in the nearby parking garage or you will be spending more for parking than movie tickets. The menu consists of burgers, hot dogs, etc. Good portion sizes, I could not even eat all of my burger and fries. Be forewarned, the food is not... More

Recently I went to see Rogue One at this dine-in movie theater. Along with delicious food, there is alcohol available for the adults and various soft drinks for the kids. You do not have to get "restaurant" food however as there are still the classic movie amenities like candy and popcorn. The one drawback is you have to book your... More

I'm visiting Vail from Tampa Fl, and have frequently been to CineBistro in Wesley Chapel. Night and day difference. Vail's staff was rude and condescending from the ticket clerk to the bartender. The menu in Vail is burgers only, no deserts and there is no in-theater servers. Avoid if your just trying to kill time. Tolerate the rudeness if it's... More

When we entered the theater we had to use the rest room - before the movie. There wasn't any toilet paper. My daughter went to tell the staff. We enjoyed the movie but the seats didn't recline and we very worn. And in desperate need of replacement. When we left the theater my daughter had to use the rest room... More

Love the plush leather reclining seats, feel like I am in first class on a flight. There is a little table so you can eat and drink. Great experience! Wish all theaters were like this.

When CineBistro first opened, we completely abandoned every other theatre in the valley. The extra cost for tickets was more than worth it for the in-seat service, food selection and bottomless bowl of popcorn. We came at the beginning of summer and were extremely disappointed that the service was abandoned and our choices were to pay an exorbitant amount for... More

The original concept was great. Good food and drinks with service at your seat. Now all they have is a burger bar. You have to order and pick up your own food. Cinebistro was always expensive, but I never minded as it was slightly different movie-going experience. Now they really have nothing to set them apart. Have dinner and drinks... More

They used to have service to your seat, but now you just have a buzzer that lets you know when you food is ready. The prices for the food used to be acceptable when it came to your seat, but now it's just outrageous! I had burger - good, but I could have eaten anywhere else for cheaper.

We used to come to CineBistro - great food - great service - all that has changed. All they serve now is average hamburgers and chicken fingers. They think they are doing you a favor. Stay away

We used to enjoy going to movies at CineBistro Vail, having dinner, a drink and relaxing. Service used to be excellent. They have now changed the concept to a burger bar..wait in line to place an order, they buzz you when you burger is ready and you carry your trey to the theater. The prices are not "cafeteria" prices but... More
