Joanna, So glad to hear that everything was pleasing to you. We did a menu update just about a month ago. We are closed this week for some paint, fabric and art updates. Thank you

The menu is tired – it never changes. Service was bad – waitress forgot about us. Had an over-priced, flavorless salad with an overcooked, unseasoned hamburger on top. Charged us $4 for a cut up reheated dinner roll with frozen butter. NO flavor – bland.More

We tried out Grouper as a dinner feature as we were considering adding it to our new menu. Did you tell your server that you didn't care for your meal? Had I known you weren't happy with your meal, we would have simply prepared something...More

The appetizers, entrees and desserts are all delicious and it is always so hard to choose! Prices are very reasonable for the quality you receive. The atmosphere is perfect and the service is always impeccable. This restaurant is a hidden gem!

Hiring an executive chef was the best move as he always ensures quality and creativity out of our kitchen. I was a server for 25 years, so that is extremely important as well. Thank you for your kind review.

That's the one two punch I'm looking for! Service and Food. I'm also glad you saved room for dessert. I often brag that we have the best dessert makers in town!

The Vine is a warm and welcoming venue right in the heart of downtown Elkhart.
