Small intimate wine bar with outdoor seating in good weather. We went for the "happy hour"! Wonderful service, great choice of small plates, fabulous flatbread pizza, yummy pan seared scallops, fries and dipping sauces to rave about, lovely fresh salads. So good we went two nights in a row! It was early May, mid-week before the "season" begins. Under a... More

This is one of our favorite places to go with friends. There's a good selection of small plates and it's difficult to choose because they truly are all delicious. During Happy Hour there's a selection of wines that are half price and a selection of small plates which are $5. Each night the HH small plates selection changes. The flat... More

Great food, great cocktails, great service --- and on the night we went, great music. Have been several times now and rarely disappointed by any dish on the menu. Very good accommodating allergies.

Always, always am treated like a true friend. Service and hospitality by all members of the OV team makes one never want to leave. Food is not only innovative but delicious with a frequently changing menu. Cocktails outstanding w/an emphasis on not only established drinks but a wide variety of craft cocktails. Wine list extensive. I encourage you to visit!!!

Come to Old Vines and share a few small plates with your partner or friends. If you are really hungry and looking for a hearty meal I would not recommend Old Vines as it is more of a wine bar with small plates to munch on. That said, the food is absolutely delicious and worth the visit if your hunger... More

This place was recommended by our B&B hostess. We truly enjoyed it. The cocktail list is very nice as well as their wine selection. We shared small plates, tapas style. We had the ceasar salad (with anchovies) which my husband really enjoyed even though he is not a big fan of ceasar... good tanginess. Scallops on a bed of beets,... More

Old Vines has a top-notch staff, a remarkably good food, wine, beer and mixed drink menu and a wonderful vibe. I had one of the best Caesar salads of my life there last night and split a flatbread "pizza" with my wife. The food was excellent, the adult beverages were just what the doctor ordered and everyone on the OVWB... More

We waited around 15 min for a table. The menu was good- they brought out dishes as they were ready... tapas style. Nice choices. Small potions. Tasty but not memorable. Mixed drinks were excellent. I wish the view were nicer. The other stores near this restaurant aren't pretty, and the street isn't a hip section of town. They should put... More

Karen - thank you for taking the time to write. I'm sorry that we missed the mark on the small plates. We change our menu frequently, including four new flatbreads just yesterday. Hopefully, you'll come back to give us another try. And I agree, operating out of a 150-year-old barn in the middle of Lower Village has its limitations. We're... More
