“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Come for the pizza but enjoy the wine and music. Every first Tuesday of the month they have the Grapevine Jam with some of the best music any place outside of Nashville.

“ENJOYABLE LUNCH IN GRAPEVINE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

The ambiance was excellent, the lunch selection menu was good and the food quality was excellent. Great service and attention by the staff. The wine selection was pricy, not enough medium priced and well known wines offered.
However, the overall experience was excellent and we will return again when in Grapevine for the September wine festival

“MANAGEMENT DOES NOT HONOR IT'S COMMITMENTS”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

For the second time, a room that was reserved weeks in advance was given away at the LAST MINUTE to a bigger party. I confirmed our reservation TWO TIMES with Rebecca first, then Carol TWO DAYS before we were to arrive, and it was NEVER EVEN SUGGESTED that we'd have to be flexible regarding the "007 Room".

The FIRST time Farina's manager pulled this stunt was for a friend's 50th birthday party when they sat us in the LARGE and LOUD Antiques Room, next to a wall in a corner. I decided, however, to try Farina's again, since the manager told us it was just a staff mistake.
So last night the party arrived and were sat in the middle of the main room, which like the Antiques Room, is LOUD and HARD to have a conversation in ~ with more than two people leaning in toward each other!

This is REALLY poor decision making, crummy customer service and because no one in the party had ever been to Farina's before, really bad press. I will never be back with ONE other person, let alone a GROUP... it's just not a good enough restaurant to put up with that nonsense.

“REALLY cool place, great wine, but food was hit or miss.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

So, this is an awesome spot, and I'm sorry it took me so long to finally go.
I will be back, and I will hang out on that sweet-looking patio next time.
BUT, it will be more about the place and the wine. It's pretty pricey overall, but the wine we had was very good. So were the apps and salad. VERY good. For entrees, they have a bit of an eclectic menu. And while they were fine, they weren't great. The shrimp scampi for instance had about 2-3X more lemon than it needed. It totally overpowered the dish.
Bottom line, though? We had a great time, a good meal, and I would recommend it.
