I was a little disappointed that the house special prime rib was sold out @ 7:30 pm. Lamb lollipops were excellent, the scampi was disappointing, using shrimp pieces and was very sweet...to many cherry tomatoes. Ribeye was very good, creme brulee was good, but overpriced. Overall enjoyed and look forward to dinner al fresco on the patio come summertime

We received a gift card for Christmas and was very excited to use it, however, we were extremely disappointed. The waitress was not attentive at all, however the table of 8 next to us had her attention the entire time. We ordered the prime rib and about 30 minutes after we ordered the waitress advises that the prime rib “has been 86’d” first off the only reason I knew what that meant is because I used to work in the industry. So unprofessional to say that to a customer, and the prime rib was gone by 7 on a Saturday? Poor planning. I was also disappointed in the lobster ravioli. We also had the calamari for an app that you had the OPTION to add Gorgonzola cheese which we did not but got it on it anyway. It made it unable to eat, we told the waitress and she looked as though she had no idea that Gorgonzola was an up charge, and then said to us so what do you want me to do?! Take it off?! By this time we had had it and just wanted to leave and didn’t bother asking for the manger because we were appalled.

Food and service were very good as always. Only complaint is a minor one regarding the bread and butter. We were served an extremely garlicky butter and requested plain butter instead. Not sure if there is a cardiologist on staff portioning it out but what we received was a tiny little dollop of plain butter. Perhaps we like our butter a little too much but it seriously was a ridiculously small portion. Clearly this is a very minor complaint and in no way will prevent us from returning, but butter is not the type ingredient that carries such a high price tag that they have to be so stingy with it.

Went with high expectation... but were disappointed. We were impressed when we walked in as the restaurant was big, bustling and had a good ‘vibe’

Our initial take was that the menu looked interesting (in a good way) but we were disappointed with the meal; which was very much volume over quality.

We noticed that almost everybody who left did so with a ‘doggy bag’...which was testament to the crazy volume that was served.

Overall... this meal was diner quality at 4 star prices.

The ambience was fine. The service from the wait staff was very good. Appetizers were excellent and filling. However the main course was a disappointment since I needed more seasoning.

Greeted warmly at the entrance. Shown to a nice high top table in the bar area. Food was very good. Service was okay- often delayed but to be expected on a busy night.
Unexpectedly the bar became very noisy with patrons at tables shouting back and forth to patrons at the bar. At one point we couldn’t hear each other at the table. It became clear that there were regulars, well known to staff, who were boisterous.

Fantastic food and service!! Being in the food service industry for 30+ years I am a very harsh critic. I could not find a fault! From the hostess to the waitress to the busboy it was a very enjoyable evening.

We were disappointed by the slow service and lack of attention. We had trouble even getting some bread. They were out of some specials by 645 PM. The food was served almost lukewarm and dry as if it was sitting in the kitchen for quite a while. The noise level makes conversation difficult.

As usual the food was excellent. We had a very odd experience with ordering a bottle of wine. It took at least 15 minutes for them to bring the wine. We were never clear why, but we had intended to have a glass of wine as a predinner drink, and were unable to do so.

We have had great luck at Vyne in the past, however, last night's service was poor. Extreme delays in getting drinks from the bar, and even getting the wine list from the servant. Restaurant ran out of wine listed as a special for the evenings meal. The food was very good and quantities enough to take home for a second meal.

Service was awful. They brought us our appetizer, salad and entree at the same time. Food was cold when they brought it back. Had to ask for salt, pepper and cheese. Took forever. Food got colder. Did not have the wine we ordered. Not happy at all. Could not find manager to tell him.
Never again.

Vyne continues to impress. Party of 5 for a pre-Christmas dinner and EVERYTHING was perfect. We love the way the restaurant uses the wood fired oven for items other than pizza. The wood fired brussel sprouts with apple shavings on top is amazing. All entrees were served hot and all to the perfect temperature. Our server Carla is amazing, we were at a very leisurely pace and she picked up on that quickly and let us order each course as we were ready. We will be back for New Year's eve!!
