“Romantic setting”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed both the beautiful patio and delicious meal. This is a family run business, so expect a leisurely pace of service, we never felt rushed. We chose the calamari appetizer to start, super fresh with yummy dipping sauce. Caesar salad and spinach salads are quite large, so splitting one is best. The fish options were found to be plentiful and delicious, as they receive daily deliveries from Monterey Wharf. Wine options feature local wineries, which, as a local made me happy! Give this place a try for either lunch or dinner, you will enjoy it.

“DON'T PASS THIS ONE BY”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

So often this lovely restaurant is passed by because it isn't as well known. The food, their wine selection, outside seating, and the family service is wonderful. It isn't as glamorous, but the food and the setting is every bit as good. Do yourself a favor. It is right behind the Corkscrew and Georgis wine tasting room.

“Cozy Bistro”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

We love the piano bar that is open to guest willing to sing out of the showers. This adds to your eating and drinking enjoyment, along with the paito with heaters for you added comfort. What a delight to have such a variety in a restaurant visit.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

If you visit Carmel Valley and appreciate a nice meal, then you must eat at the Vineyard Bistro. It is a small family run affair and the best! We ate here twice (would have been more if we had tried this first) and it was the best food we had on a recent trip to California. I had veal liver the first night - this is a meal I love and it did not let me down. We had a surf & turf the second night and it was equally good. Our welcome and attention was all we could have asked for. Thank you so much!
