The service was slow and poor. Portions were small for the price and the food was completely covered in oil. The Service never asked us how our food was or provide enough silverware for dessert. A lot of money for a poor experience.

We opted to go out Thanksgiving instead of cooking..which was a great idea for a change. The menu was limited but choices for everyone. The appetizers and the prime rib dinner were amazing and the highlight of the day! The family style sides were also good. The down side was the grocery store rolls and the desserts which were uninspired and not very good. We left those on the plates after a few bites. The crab stuffed shrimp had no crab that we could see and tasted like it was frozen from a box. The other pet peeve of mine is asking for drink refills...which we had to each and every time...even with the empty glasses at the edge of the table. For over $40 a person for the set menu, I expected a little more..

Thanksgiving day was quite busy so this review takes that into consideration. The food was excellent and the waitress and wait service was very good. I would definitely return on a non holiday as their clams casino, which is one of my favorite dishes, were excellent.
Our family of four enjoyed everything and the holiday visit was a success.

Thanksgiving. Clams on the half shell fresh and cold. Calamari crispy with fried peppers, aioli very good. Butternut squash soup smooth and flavorful. Turkey was good and plentiful, loved the roasted Brussels, yams not so much. Relaxing Thanksgiving, good food and service.

Would recommend with reservation...sitting in the room where the bar is located can get VERY NOISY. Hard to give an accurate rating for Vyne - my husband had a menu special, the veal chop which he said was wonderful, but expensive. Our friend had to send his onion soup back because it wasn't hot enough. His steak, good, but, again, expensive. My chicken parm was good - nothing out of the ordinary despite the review in CT Magazine. We would try it again if in the area, but would not make a special trip.

Beautiful Restaurant with great food and a very broad menu. We were there on a Sunday evening and while the restaurant wasn't overly busy the service was average at best. The waiter was not very attentive given how quiet the restaurant was.

Excellent dining experience. Great venue, good service, and excellent food. My wife had the short ribs and I had the salmon. We shared the fried calamari appetizer. They also have a good craft beer selection.

The food was quite good as was the service. However, the noise level got ridiculous. When we first arrived the restaurant was 30% full. When we left it was 90%. In the beginning patrons were able to hold a normal conversation. By the time we left people were literally shouting to be heard. Prices were on the high side so we expected a better dining experience atmosphere-wise. There are many very good restaurants in CT with comparable food so I doubt we we will go back

Dinner with coworkers, party of 10, and it was amazing. The food was really good. Lovely service and atmosphere. There was also a band playing in the bar area and we were in the dinning room and the music was just the right amount of loud as we could all still talk and hear each other and still enjoy the music.

Our table could have used a little more attention. We ran out of water, and was looking to get more fill ups. The only time we saw our server when our order was taken, and the meal was brought out.

This was our first visit to the Vyne—and it was a truly delightful! The food and service were both excellent, and the contemporary decor and ambience only added to our experience. I wish I could remember our servers name, because she was outstanding. We will definitely return soon.

I was looking forward to ordering the duck I had at a past dinner but it wasn’t on the menu, so I ordered the sea scallops with fettuccine. This dish was so delicious I was glad they didn’t have the duck!

Beautiful spot and architecture. Too bad the rest didn't match.

Asked our waiter why their Long Island Ice Tea is famous, he didn't even know it said that on the menu, negative.
My wife loved her wood fired marrow, positive.
French onion soup had limited cheese over the top and I couldn't add enough salt to give it any flavor, negative.
They brought our main courses out while still eating our appetizers. It wasn't like we were dragging our feet eating, main courses came really fast, negative.
Our waiter was shocked, and bought me a drink, positive, but wouldn't have to do it if there wasn't the negative, so it doesn't count.
My shrimp fra diavlo wasn't diavlo. The sauce tasted like jarred sauce and it was only spicy if I grabbed a cherry tomato to go with it, negative.
My wife's scallops were tasteless, her rice was inedible, negative.
Certainly not what we expected. But I can't recommend it based on our experience.

This as a very favorable experience. It was our first time there since the changeover. Very happy with the food choices, and our service was professional and friendly. The new decor is vibrant and uplifting.

Really happy with the place. This was a special night celebrating my birthday, and the restaurant is suitable for both special occasions as well as more casual dining experience.

Our 1st visit here -- looks like wonderful outdoor seating on an upper patio, we chose to eat inside as it was fairly hot outside. Large spacious dining area, table and booths are not too close together. Beautiful large bar with seat and high tops available. Our server Karla was EXCELLENT, we told her we liked to take our time, and she spaced all the courses out perfectly. The menu has EVERYTHING but not too much. Our table split the oven roasted clams, the oven roasted brussel sprouts and lamb pops -- all were perfect. For entrees we had the shrimp fra diavolo, the scallops with fettuccine (home made) and the veal chop (a special) portion sizes were perfect for dinner. Food was all hot and the presentation on each dish was unique and appealing to the eye. Would highly recommend Vyne to anyone and we will DEF bed back!
