I enjoyed appetizers with friends before our meeting began. We had nachos, wings, etc. and it was all good. We made it back there a few times to enjoy cocktails. Good place to get caught up.

This is a small restaurant located inside the Vinoy. Nice place to grab a drink and a quick meal. Lots of TVs to watch sports. It is located close to the pool, so would be an ideal place in the summer to grab bites and still be close to the action

The drinks were especially tasty and the food was far from ordinary. We had tampas as they seemed to fill us up. We all had a great time , lots... More

We've been eating here for many years and this place never disappoints! The servers are wonderful, especially Matt and Dave who've been there seemingly forever. Casual poolside dining with top quality food. They also have a really nice inside area with lots of windows. What could be better! Don't let the fact that it is on the Vinoy property deter... More

Alfresco's is located on the Vinoy hotel property. We ate there for breakfast and lunch on separate days and were very happy that they could accommodate our fairly large group on short notice. The service was courteous and fast and all of our guests had a great time. The only draw back is the top to bottom windows which make... More

What more can you ask for, sunshine, awesome fish tacos, ice cold cocktail and friendly service! Not pretending to be more than it is, a great outdoor poolside grill and bar.

Jeanette R, Manager at Alfresco's, responded to this review

A great outdoor (or indoor) poolside, casual grill and bar it is. Alfresco is the place to be! Thank you for joining us for our ever-popular Fish Tacos (yum) and an iced-cold cocktail with a little extra dose of Florida sunshine. Life is good, and we are happy you enjoyed your time here at The Vinoy. More

Casual dining at it's best. I had the fish tacos one time and the Quinoa salad with shrimp the next time. Both were very tasty. I enjoyed sitting on the patio enjoying the sunshine.
