We decided to try this restaurant based on the very good Open Table reviews and the recommendation of a work colleague. Our appetizers and drinks were very good. A nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle at very reasonable prices. I ordered the Zuppa di Mare and my wife ordered the Lobster pasta dish. Both were excellent and reminded me of some of my old South Philly favorite restaurants. The food was excellent!!!
The service on the other hand, was very disappointing. Our waitress was very cold and inattentive. We essentially had to ask for almost every drink refill or other requests. She seemed to try to avoid eye contact as not to service the table. And although she was not outright rude or nasty, she did not make you feel welcome. At the end of the dinner, we had an Open Table Gift Reward that we assigned to use during our Open Table reservation. Not surprisingly, as soon as our server saw this, she said “I doubt we accept this but I’ll ask the boss.” We saw her show the boss the gift reward who shook her head “no” before even reading it. We explained that the value of this card was backed by Master Cars and the instructions on how to use were on the card. We asked to speak to the manager , who we believe was the chef’s wife. She clearly was not happy to speak with us but we asked her to just try to follow the instructions on the reward. She finally did and they were credited.
Despite the excellent food and wine at a reasonable price,eating out is just as much about the overall dining experience as the quality, quantity and value of the food. For this reason, we would have to think long and hard about returning to this restaurant.

This restaurant had excellent reviews; unfortunately, I did not have the same experience.

All 4 people in my party are in agreement regarding the service, or lack thereof.

Pumpkin Martini—excellent. Salad & garlic bread—very good. Entrees—good. Service. What service?

This is a “one & done” visit to The Vineyard.
