Always, always am treated like a true friend. Service and hospitality by all members of the OV team makes one never want to leave. Food is not only innovative but delicious with a frequently changing menu. Cocktails outstanding w/an emphasis on not only established drinks but a wide variety of craft cocktails. Wine list extensive. I encourage you to visit!!!

Come to Old Vines and share a few small plates with your partner or friends. If you are really hungry and looking for a hearty meal I would not recommend Old Vines as it is more of a wine bar with small plates to munch on. That said, the food is absolutely delicious and worth the visit if your hunger... More

This place was recommended by our B&B hostess. We truly enjoyed it. The cocktail list is very nice as well as their wine selection. We shared small plates, tapas style. We had the ceasar salad (with anchovies) which my husband really enjoyed even though he is not a big fan of ceasar... good tanginess. Scallops on a bed of beets,... More

Old Vines has a top-notch staff, a remarkably good food, wine, beer and mixed drink menu and a wonderful vibe. I had one of the best Caesar salads of my life there last night and split a flatbread "pizza" with my wife. The food was excellent, the adult beverages were just what the doctor ordered and everyone on the OVWB... More

We waited around 15 min for a table. The menu was good- they brought out dishes as they were ready... tapas style. Nice choices. Small potions. Tasty but not memorable. Mixed drinks were excellent. I wish the view were nicer. The other stores near this restaurant aren't pretty, and the street isn't a hip section of town. They should put... More

Visited Saturday night for a late dinner. Arrived at 815 or so and it was packed! Be prepared for it being loud and lively:) We were able to grab two seats at the bar and the service was wonderful. Great cocktails, kale salad and their carmelized onion and bacon pizza. Apple crisp for dessert. Needless to say it was all... More

We discovered this a few years ago and fell in love. We usually go on our first night in tow and enjoy wine and tapas. The atavistic is friendly and know a lot about wine so they can point you in the right direction. The food is delicious. Have met the owners a few times and they are nice. Great... More
