    Waitress was amazing. Very attentive. But I don’t remember her name. Shrimp scampi portion seemed a bit small for my husband but not me. And the Chicken Parmigiana was perfect for my son.

    It was our first time visiting Messina Hoff. We went to the Wine Bar first and then went to our reservation at Vintage House. Everything was wonderful. The food, the wine and the service. We will visit again.

    We were seated in the main room all by ourselves. Everyone else was getting seated in the room with the windows. It was very dark. Very quiet. No music. Kind of awkward. Food was decent. Steak was pretty salty. Chicken parm was good.

    Casually elegant atmosphere; loved sitting by the glass wall beside the vineyard. Several compelling food choices; our selections were excellent. Server staff were attentive without bothering. The wine was of course excellent; we are recent Wine Club members and are very impressed with Messina Hof across the board.

    Location and ambiance were great. Our service was excellent, however the food details missed the mark! We had a table of 6 and all but one or two mentioned their dish could have been hotter temperature wise. I ordered the veal. The taste itself was great. But the breading on the veal was somewhat soggy and definitely not crunchy as one would expect in a breaded veal cutlet. The sauce was flavorful but components of the sauce (warm at best) were cold. The mushrooms and artichokes were room temperature at best. One mushroom slice was distinctly cold as though it were precooked and stored in the refrigerator then added to the sauce and the entire sauce reheated but definitely not hot! The risotto the veal and sauce was served on was mushy and flavorless. I’ve had better in a package from the grocers. My wife also had temperature issues with her Chicken Parm. The chicken cutlet was a good temperature and the breading was crunchy but the sauce and noodles it was served on were just warmed. I’m not sure if the number of guests had any bearing on the temperature of the dish, however, this was a 4:30 pm seating and there were no other diners in the place when we arrived and only two other couples arrived maybe 15 minutes after we arrived so the kitchen was certainly not slammed with orders. Yes….we should have return our food for a good warming but the table had been served so we just carried on. The chef/expediter really needs to pay closet attention to the details….and temperature is one of them! Mine was the last dish served (I waited 5 minutes longer than the rest of the table) so I opted not to send the dish back. My wife had a similar issue with her meal

    Messina Hoff is first & foremost a winery. That they have a space to serve food is ancillary, & really is more of a place to store wine & demonstrate how well the wine pairs with food. The regional American menu is quite good, with options ranging from the very familiar (e.g. beef tenderloin steak, salad with dried cranberries) to the somewhat familiar (e.g. roasted duck breast, risotto with mushrooms). You are unlikely to find anything that could be considered adventurous. While the execution of the menu items can be haphazard (my dish was overcooked to the point of nearly being ruined, but everyone else’s food came out satisfactorily), everything we had was - admittedly - tasty, & the portions are gernerous. The day we were there, the restaurant appeared to be breaking in a new staff. Taking this in stride, we simply enjoyed the atmosphere along with a bit more wine. We had a wonderful time. We plan on returning, as we’re eager to experience Vintage House when it’s being operated at peak performance.

    Food was great, I always enjoy our brunch on Sundays. The only thing I would recommend in the future would be that the correct credit card be charged for the meal. I made the reservation but Mike Harrod joined me for brunch and he gave his discover card to pay for the meal and my account on file was charged instead. I don't want a refund, as it doesn't matter to me who pays for the meal we come often. But for the future please pay closer attention to this detail. Thank you for allowing me to provide feedback.

    Celebrated a special occasion with five loved ones. Nice place, but very disappointed with both service and food. It took a very long time for the meals to arrive after ordering. The server did apologize several times for the long delay, though. As for the food, the Veal Zitrone was less than mediocre. The chicken breast in the Chicken Parmigiana was extremely tough, dry, and hard to cut. The Shrimp Scampi was bland. And, the Bone In Ribeye was flavorless and stringy. All members of the party agreed that they will not return to this establishment.

    We had a fantastic experience at Vintage House. Our food was fantastic!! My husband had the lamb chops that were cooked to perfection and I had the maple glazed duck, that was exquisite! We shared one of their incredible red wines. Our server was very helpful and his suggestions were in point! We are definitely going to go back soon!

    Wenr here for our 41st anniversary, we have dined here on several occasions before. I must say we were disappointed this time due to several factors, 1st the entire nenu was not available to us because of staffing. Secondly our waiter while nice didn't seem to up to the task of reading the customer in regards to timing of the dining experience. 3rd , we thought the rear dining room could use a good cleaning and lastly it was very warm in the room to the point where we broke a sweat. What we did order was well prepared although skimpy on portions. Hopefully they can get back to its prior level of service and preparation.

    We had a reservation for nine people. The service was impeccable. We were served in a timely manner with a very knowledgeable and courteous white staff. I had all three of the specials for tonight which were a shrimp gazpacho soup, grilled Baramundi with a lemon butter sauce and a port fudge Pound cake. Everything was delicious. The lemon butter sauce for the fish was everything! I highly recommend the Vintage House.
