Celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary at Vineyard Wine Bar was a wonderful choice. The food, service, and champagne were all wonderful. But, even more special was the joining of our celebration by the other diners, one of which paid for our champagne without informing us, and instructing the waitress to not let us know until they had left! We had quite a memorable experience.

This was our first time there. Really liked the wine selection and appreciate the 3oz pour. Allowed me to have a different wine with each course. Service was excellent and she was very knowledgeable about the wines. Food was very good and fit my foodie taste. Definitely plan to go back, but reservations are a must. Saw several walk ups turned away because they were booked for the night.

Another great yummy visit. One tip: when you know it’s someone’s birthday at the table, don’t be such so snooty - at least say “happy birthday”! We don’t want “free stuff or some bs song sang” …. Just a happy birthday would be nice. Other than that, a great place (so not really a dog especially with the five stars I’m giving). We can’t say “fantastic” all the time (although you mostly are)!

2nd wk in a roll coming here. First experience was a knock out - that good! 2nd experience was a bit difference. We realize we are “new” & this is mostly a local hang out. As we were leaving, the owner, whom we’ve seen earlier going around saying “hello” & chit chatting with his regulars (which you’d expect), completely skipped us & even gave us a bit of a “stink-eye” (likely unintentionally) but as we were leaving after such a good meal, we said “thank you & we’ll be back” as we passed him out the door. He replies back, “whatever”???!!! REALLY? That’s your response??! We’ve spent over 300$ in two visits & that’s your response? How quickly you’ve forgotten just a few wks ago you were struggling. When the “rush” to go out dies down, it’s the customer, the ones who give you praise, that ensures your survival. You already have a bit of a reputation of a bit of a snob’ism attitude (from your same local customers). If you’re gonna do so, don’t try to be European about it, learn from them. They do it in a way that keeps you coming back! You did it basically because you “think” your one. Trust me, not even close! Will give it one more try in a few wks - everyone, especially business owners, have a bad day (but you weren’t obviously). See you soon (although you wouldn’t know who we are)

I had the tuna very rare. Never had tuna prepared like that and I’ll never have it any other way from now on. Most exceptional. I’ve always had filet mignon very rare and now my tuna will likewise be rare from here on out.

Can’t say enough! We saved the best for last, that’s for sure. Moved to the historic district a month ago and have tried every establishment with food. Some places, horrible! Others, good enough but nothing to write about. This place, a home run! Although a bit pricey, if the food and service is excellent, we don’t mind one bit. It was beyond that and I would’ve spent double for the exact same amount …. It was that good!

My husband and I have lived all over the US and overseas and the Vineyard restaurant is right up there with the finest restaurants around. Chef Ron is a masterful chef, not a cook! His creations are unique and extremely tasty. His wife, Angie, always helps with the wine pairing.
We would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and strangers. Havre de Grace NEEDS this restaurant. An added bonus is the wine lounge where you will find a vast selection of excellent wines.

This was my first time and I have to say I was very pleased overall with the Wine Bar. I thought it was cosy - the lighting was good - could have done without the TV (don't you go out to get away from all that?). Our server was very good - she was spot on about the shrimp Ziti - excellent. And the selection of wines is incredible. The only thing that I think would have been helpful would be to list pairings of wine with the food on the menu. Maybe as suggestions. I probably would not have ordered the wine if I had known there was a better one to compliment my dinner.

We have eaten here on numerous occasions and never been disappointed. Food is fresh and delicious, service top-notch, and a great wine list! This last time I had a Flounder Florentine that was melt in your mouth yum. My husband also enjoyed his Carne Asada. We almost always get the mushroom tart, but this time it was not as good as I remembered. We shared one of the just a few bites desserts - the chocolate turtle and it was tasty and enough to satisfy.

Wow what a great meal! We worked our way down the menu ordering from each section and can say it was all done to perfection. I recommend ordering the filet, I ordered it Pittsburgh and it came out perfect charred on the outside and rare on the inside. The service was very good with the food coming out within minutes of ordering each course. The wine selection is better than expected with over 20 being offered by the glass.
