The atmosphere is quaint, and the food is always good. I have been multiple times with girlfriends and we always enjoy it.

We highly recommend the Old Vine Café for a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Chef Mark and his staff have the same passion, enthusiasm and attention to details. His wine (beer) and food pairings are my benchmark for all other restaurants. For the last 10 years...More

My boyfriend had booked and reserved us the prefix menu for Valentines Day with wine pairing. First of all: service was slow, they were understaffed for the number of reservations they had. It took over 20 minutes between courses, after you finished. By the second...More

I am terribly sorry that you left feeling that the experience was less than excellent. With Tasting menu dining, including wine pairings, we certainly allow more time for diners to enjoy the pairing experience. Upon request we can always expedite the speed in which courses...More

I’ve live in the area all my life and just found this gem. Excellent flavors and variety. We had the fried artichoke salad and the spinach salad. Both were enough for a meal. The octopus was the most tender I have ever tasted. Not chewy...More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food selections are very out of the ordinary with great taste and imaginative creativity in the preparation. The wine is some of the finest and good prices; ones that you don't see in the grocery store.

Great menu for breakfast or lunch. Omelets, salads, sandwiches--everything looked wonderful. Went for lunch recently with some business colleagues and can't wait to return. Parking is a little limited so you might want to avoid peak times--come early or late.
