The Vine Restaurant & Wine Bar

The Vine is located in the shopping plaza at Dale Mabry and Van Dike. They serve steak, duck, veal, seafood, and pasta. You can enjoy beer, wine, and full liquor with your meal. They have a very nicely themed restaurant. Much of the decor is constructed from classic style wine boxes. The booth's table tops are even made from wine boxes.

We had (All Pictured)

  • Bruschetta $8
  • Maine Lobster Pasta $22
  • Maple Leaf Duck Breast $24

The Bruschetta's presentation was quite nice, and the balsamic glaze makes you wish you ordered more than one.

The Lobster Pasta has Fresh Maine Lobster, Caramelized Fennel, Asparagus, w/ a Cognac cream sauce over linguine. The presentation was a little lacking, but the taste was absolutely stunning.

The Maple Leaf Duck Breast (ordered med rare) was served with Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Poached Pear, Parmesan Risotto , and topped off with an orange balsamic reduction.

The Duck was prepared just perfect! It was very tender, and you could tell they slow cooked it, like a medium rare should be.
