Everything about this place was fantastic. Our server was attentive but didn't hover, all of his suggestions were spot on and the food was just incredible.
It's one of those amazing little hidden gems that you would never know was there. I lived a block away for 6 months before I ever tried it and my only disappointment is that i missed out on it all that time.
The prices where slightly higher than I expected, but it was well worth it. The veal is freshly butchered in house, and the mozzarella is also made on the premises.
If you are looking for a romantic night out, a family friendly place or somewhere to catch up with an old friend, I wholeheartedly recommend The Vineyard.
The food is fantastic. By far the best italian food in the Lehigh Valley. This style of cooking I grew up eating and I can't wait to go back and try other dishes. The calamari and linguine Fra Diavlo is unreal and the veal saltimbocca is mouth watering. The service was good and the after dinner desserts were fresh and delightful. A real treat. While I was leaving the accordion player began to play and we sat for a couple Italian songs.
I drove from Philadelphia to visit with family and used Yahoo to find this restaurant. I wanted something unpretentious, real with a pleasant environment and excellent food. We could not have been more pleased.
The house wine at $5 per glass was very pleasant. The wine list was better than you would expect for a neighborhood bistro and varied from the twenties to the fifties.
Most of us had the house salad which was crisp, cold and fresh. The dressing were balanced. The entrée's were accompanied by a pasta side with a fresh made marinara sauce and done to the right side of el dente.
My very Italian sister in law, herself an excellent cook, was skeptical of going to an Italian restaurant. She thought she would order fish and changed her mind and joined me for the best veal parmesan that either of us ever had. The portions provided us with take-out for Sunday left overs and the bill without drinks for 5 people was $105. That included my two glasses of wine and two bottles of Pelegrino water.
The atmosphere is old fashioned Italian neighborhood kitsch. You could spend a lot more for a lot less than you will get at the Vineyard. If this restaurant were in Philadelphia, I would not write this review because I would want to keep it for myself. This is a very good restaurant for the value and a neighborhood setting. It does not pretend to be anything else.
The Vineyard is one of my three regular stops for excellent dining!!! ... My ATF for italian fare. The food is always incredible and the prices are quite reasonable. Be careful where you park as that can be problematic and do call ahead for reservations. Daily specials vary depending on the chef of course, but my ATF is the manicotti. Excellent salads to start off the meal and I often don't have room for dessert. Highly recommend.
The food is average and the price is too high for the commonplace decor.They use stacking chairs for dining chairs.The decor should be upgraded as the restaurant is pretty well known.
The service is ok but the night I was there ( a week night) there was only one waiter for the whole restaurant.It wasn't busy so it ok.
My wife and I have been here several times and always liked it. We recently took our children (under 14) without really knowing what to expect. There is so much variety on the menu that neither of them had any trouble finding something that they really liked. The service was fantastic, with the waitress even taking time to show one of them how to fold the napkins into decorations. Great food and a great experience. The place doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that stop you from going in!
An excellent place for great food and nice atmosphere. Friends recommended it to us over 10 years ago, and we had our wedding dinner here. The Vineyard is our first choice for birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. Just went back on Mother's Day and it is still by far the best Italian food in the Valley. Try the veal!
I recently had my 5th visit to this establishment after stumbling upon it about a year ago. I am absolutely sold on this place. I cannot get enough of the seafood with the red or white clam sauce! I can't tell you how many baskets of bread I go through that I dip in the sauce. My cousin and I drove down 4th St in South Bethlehem on our way to a concert at the Sands, looking for a place for dinner, passing on all the 'trendy' places. We decided to go back to the Vineyard. We explained that we had a show to see and did not have much time. The waitress was extremely acommodating, seating us quickly and getting our drinks and dinner order just as quickly. She seated us at a booth, which, since I am a rather large man, she noticed, was very uncomfortable for me and she changed us to a table. Needless to say, I ordered my favorite seafood dinner. BRAVO to the Vineyard. Great food and service. I'll be back.
