Little disappointed in our seating arrangements. Put on table in old bar area and did request by fire - no fire burning. Had Sydney visitor so would have liked main dining area. Food and service were excellent. Staff very friendly.

Dined here on Mother's Day when they were fully booked. They didn't miss a beat. Were extremely well organised and customer service was second to none!! Really good to see them practising full COVID safe procedures.

Enjoyed my fish and chip with salad. Fresh, hot and just right amount. Delivery of food very good considering the no of orders and some tables bit hard to get to. Took away dirty dishes and glasses promptly. Great that menu offers curries too and generous serves.

My son’s lamb cutlets were very good and my meal was ok except for the salmon being overcooked. We were a bit confused by the online booking ... having booked a table for 8pm, we discovered on arrival that the kitchen closed at 8pm! Luckily we had arrived early. More clarification needed on the website.

Would highly recommend The Vine Hotel. The food was superb, the service was brilliant with lovely friendly staff. Great range at the bar and the whole place had such a homely feel about it - warm and inviting. If you visit Wangaratta and don't stop here, you'll regret it!!

I've always liked going to The Vine Hotel. However with only one bar but 3 separate areas (indoor, outdoor & separate show seating area). That one little bar becomes incredibly busy. We were eating our meal & suddenly there was a deluge of people waiting for drinks. I would say at least 20 people. If you are going to have a large capacity because you have 3 areas then you really need a separate bar for the he outdoor venues.
Other than that of he Neal was very nice & service excellent (we ordered quick)

Ambiance is usually pretty good but this time our table was opposite the bar where everyone came in and the noise was not conducive to having a nice night out with the wife. If you don’t mind the noise, it’s a great night out, food is great.

Make the effort, yes it's only a couple of kilometres out of Wangaratta, drive or catch a taxi.

The whole experience from being met at the door to the end of the night tanking us for coming.

Staff friendly and very efficient, as was the kitchen, meals presented together hot and tasty, well presented.

We had crumbed cutlets (which were scrumptious) and cauliflower/broccoli in white sauce, also a flavour-sensation.
Unfortunately, there was no traditional mashed potato and the other vegies (peas & corn from a packet) and basic, bland carrots, were quite a disappointment - particularly given the price at the higher end of menu.

I would recommend the cutlets but advise the vegies are below standard.

Ambience is over cluttered with very poor lighting inside.

As a regular customer at the Vine Hotel I was extremely disappointed in the food quality. The steak was gristly and disgustingly undercooked to the extent that I could not eat it. I complained and was told that no one else had ever complained which undermined my experience. The vegetables while ok were cold and the chips were undercooked and not at all crispy as one would expect. I was not offered my money back which was the least they could do as steak costs 36 dollars which is a lot of money for the one I got!
The standard of this hotel have dropped significantly since Covid and I would definitely not recommended it for good food as I used to do.

When an apology just isn’t enough. Made a booking not realising they had an event on also so we were forgotten about from the very beginning. Made our order through their table tag app only to find out 20 minutes later that they were out of their prawn pasta so she changed to the parma. When our food finally arrived it came with my hubby half finished before my daughter received hers and I waited patiently for mine for it to never show up. Finally someone had the courage to realise the mistake only to say I should have realised they were out of pasta and reordered myself when my daughter did.... so many opportunities to make a service save and be genuine about the error, I understand it happens.

I along with a group of friends who were visiting Wangaratta for an extended weekend attended the Vine a few times over our weekend. Jimmy, Vicki and crew members were well organised, polite, funny, and offered excellent service. The Vine has always offered and excellent venue, but now it an exceptional venue offering a huge outdoor area of well planned out door area. If you have never been to The Vine, now is the time to experience all which they offer. Drop in for a drink, a look and see, plan ahead for a function. The opportunity is there for you to experience. Its up to you!
