The space and the food are lovely as is the view. However, the choice of music is jarring and takes away from the overall experience. I would recommend that the management consider the sound system and the choice of music to match the surroundings.

Excellent again. We are always pleased when dining at Vineland. We are never rushed but the timing of courses are well orchestrated and service is friendly. Staff exhibit a high level of competence from the greeter to all servers,who offer excellent suggestions for wine pairings. The food presentation and tastes are always unique, creative and delicious.

Superb location for a birthday lunch, overlooking the vines and the lake.
Friendly service, convivial staff.
Excellent pix fixe of tomato soup, steak and vanilla cheesecake with a glass of bubbly to begin and red with the meal. The meal sounds blahish but it couldn’t have been better.
Thank you
We will be back soon.
( Lovely Bentley convertible in the parking lot. We know where to dine LOL)

We've been going to Vineland Estates for many years, but it had been a while. Decided to go with my daughter for lunch. It is still awesome, if not even better. The food was excellent. And of course, the patio looking out onto the vineyard is so pretty and zen. We loved our lunch date!

Every bite was delightful, a new experience for the palate. Our party of 4 enjoyed every course except dessert ...because we were too full from our shareable, apps and main courses to order dessert. We had a wide range of the menu and nothing disappointed. The ambiance was relaxing and enjoyable. The staff was pleasant, our server Andrea was great! The wine was delicious as well. Everything about our night was awesome. Definitely will return.

We sat on the patio and enjoyed an exquisite night. The chef’s special was delightful and they were able to make a vegetarian version that was equally excellent.

What an amazing meal! Chef George is a rock star! The tuna crudo was incredible - so many delicious flavors. My daughter ordered the duck for her main, devoured as much as she could, and finished off the rest for breakfast the next day! The steak and frites was cooked to perfection. Looking forward to our next meal at VEW - can’t wait to see what Chef George will come up with next!

Beautiful venue. Even if you can't get a table on the patio deck you still get a wonderful view of the surrounding vineyards. The gardens are lovely too!
My guest was a little late and the waitress was very accommodating.

It's been 20 years since I was last there, and although the gorgeous big old tree in the patio has tumbled, the amazing creative & delicious food, view, nature sounds, and who experience has improved. God bless you Vineland for doing this - one of the true oases in the heart of a busy settled landscape!

Appetizer was delicious! The calamari was perfectly cooked and the garnishes complemented it very well. The main course was kind of blend— beef was not really tasty and the fries tasted like old frying oil. Sparkling wine was very pleasant. Service was really slow. I set there for almost 10 min before someone brought me some water and took my order. The server was kind but was not present. The ambience was amazing. I would go back for sure, but would order something else and would have lower expectations regarding the service.

All servers (in any winery) should have some basic photography training, i think. It would translate into better photos on social media for you ;) Just food for thought cause everything else was outstanding.

Vineland restaurant was an amazing experience. First, the setting is very well organized, overlooking the vines and very spaceful. Then - and mostly - the 5-course menu was tantalizingly good. Everything was perfect: pairings, choice of ingredients, cooking, timely service... This has been a flawless experience. The overall value you get for your $90 is incredibly good. A no-brainer!

These folks love food and great service ... and it shows.
Wait Staff were attentive, not intrusive.
They were engaging and informative - not snooty.
The charcuterie and cheese plates were the best ever ... works of art that looked too good not to eat.
Fabulous stress free ambience courtesy of Matt.
A wonderful, leisurely dinner, watching the sun go down over the vineyards.
Can't beat it.

I give only 3 stars because we came for lunch but there is no designated “lunch” menu. We ate here a few weeks ago and the dinner selections were the same as offered for lunch.
It would be nice to see a selection of burgers, salads and/or sandwiches for lunch,in addition to the soup offered. We ordered the cheese and charcuterie plates which are tasty. The bread is delicious!
The patio is. Is open which affords a fabulous view.
I recommend the restaurant.

We just returned from France where we've been to several Mitchelin-starred restaurants. This one would shine among them! We took degustation menu and every dish was a discovery. Presentation, taste , ingredients match were impressive. Out of 5 wines late harvest was excellent, other whites were reasonably good, reds - not.
Vineyard settings make it even better! So, out of 5 stars I give them SIX! Will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Compliments to chefs and owners!
