“Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We decided to give Vino 124 a try after finding it on Opentable and then researching it here on Tripadvisor... What a great idea we had!

They were moderately busy, about 3/4 full, yet the service was right on time. The menu is small, but that's typical of places that make fresh food daily, based on what's available at the local butcher and from the local growers.

Started with their curry hummus which came with flat bread. The hummus was OUTSTANDING! The bread was more along the lines of a dense naan, but was seasoned so well and pulled apart so nicely... the combo of these two items was quite nice!

For dinner, my wife got the tahini marinated, panko breaded chicken and raved about it! (Still raving about it the next day!). I got the BBQ shrimp and polenta. The home made pickles were delicious! The shrimp was also very tasty with that BBQ sauce and the polenta was one of the most flavorful I've ever had, as it didn't taste like bland corn.

Overall this was a great experience. The owner kept a watchful eye on all the guests and was tending to every need, from topping off water and wine to making small talk.

Very friendly staff and clean restaurant. Definitely worth a try!

“Amazing cozy place in the mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Excelent food! I tried all the dishes in my party and they were all remarkable! We started with the humus and the salmon mousse, which were excellent!
Then the soup!! The entrees were one better than the others. Veggie lasagna and the sausages were simply spectacular! The desserts were almost reasons to fight among our party! Cristian and Vica were excellent. Great wine pairings! I will definitely come back!

“Lives up to the reviews ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Vino 123 for dinner for the first time in over a year. The new decor is lovely and inviting. The wine selection is very nice. We love that the menu is small and offers a nice variety of well done items. The crab cakes are delicious and we are very picky about crab cakes. The best part is the wait staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.

“Best Restaurant in Front Royal, VA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I love the different menus this restaurant offers, and have a few favorite dishes. This town seriously lacks in decent restaurants, and Vino 124 is one of a very few places my family will eat out at and it's just about the only place I'll take friends to.
