If you were a fan of the old Vine in its heyday, then you'll LOVE the New Vine!! I've stopped in now twice to check out the changes that have been made since Jeanne Kern took over in November 2016. A few weeks ago my daughters and I stopped in for lunch. I'm a huge fan of the "garbage salad"... More

If you've not been here in a while, do yourself a favor and go! You're missing out on a wonderful dining experience. The new owner has done some beautiful work on the building as well as the menu and the wine list is phenomenal! We were there last night for a wine tasting event and we are already looking forward...

The soup, the sandwich and the service - outstanding. Philly cheese steak soup was amazing. Thank the new chef and new owner for establishing a new level of enjoyable food in downtown Elkhart - even for lunch!

We took some treasured family members out to dinner at the Vine over the holidays last month. The meal was great, the wine selections were fabulous, and Jeanne and her crew were the epitome of gracious hosts for our event. Highly recommend this place!

Small gem of a restaurant. Friendly staff and awesome food. Not to mention a really great wine list and homemade desserts. I love this restaurant

First of all, the Penne Alfredo was great. Very rich Alfredo sauce. The service was spotty, though. Took a long time to take my order, which is a killer if you are on lunch hour from work. Once I mentioned it, the server started to speed things up. I was also disappointed to find out there were lunch specials. I... More

Visited in the evening before a show at the beautiful restored Lerner Theatre. Fast and friendly service. Plenty of time to dine and enjoy an evening out with friends

Had higher expectations for this place. Service was really slow. Atmosphere was okay though there was a really leaky air conditioning unit that was dripping water into buckets. Sauce had a good flavor but chicken was overcooked and barely edible.
