Everyone at our table was appalled that we were charged for the second glass of ice tea. Everything else was very good.

The food is exceptional! Authentic, homemade Italian at its best! From the fresh mozzarella appetizer to the house salad dressing and the tender and flavorful chicken entree, nothing was overlooked. Service was quick and courteous and the price was right! Will definitely visit again on our next trip to Musikfest!!

We went out for my mother-in-law‘s 90th birthday and had a fabulous time. She was incredibly happy with the food and the service.

Place gets a bit loud when restaurant is crowded....which is most of the time.
BUT do not let that stop you from dining at The Vineyard. The service is excellent and the food is great!
My personal favorite is the fettuccini carbonara. It is the best i have ever eaten!
This is positively one of my top three restaurants in the Lehigh Valley.

A neighborhood stalwart for generations. It is an old school Italian restaurant without apology or pretension. It has a broad range of all of the traditional favorites on its expansive menu. Full bar, good wine list. Reasonably priced. The food is really good...

Waitress entered wrong entree for one of the people in our party into computer. She brought wrong entree and then reordered correct meal. Mistakes happen but no offer by staff of reducing his meal cost for error. Might be tough to get friends to meet us there again. However general consensus was food was very good.

Food and service was really good.
Noisier than it used to be because of tile floor and open ceiling to steel roof deck.

Food was awesome as we have become to expect. Our server was great! Only disappointment is since the renovations, this restaurant is just way too LOUD, it is hard to have a conversation with the person across from the table. We will be back but we won't go there as much as before because of the noise level.

The renovations have really opened things up. There is a proper bar now, and the dining area is spacious and bright. The staff remains energetic and attentive. The food is delicious, as well. We had a very nice antipasto, and our main courses were cooked nicely, and very flavorful.

If your in the market for a great Italian meal, look no further. Appetizers are scrumptious and well prepared, good to share. “Try the veal it’s the best in the city....”
They butcher their own, Fantastic!
A very nice wine list.
Very good service.
Enjoy it, there are few restaurants like this in that area.

The decor has been updated to a more open and industrial motif which is very nice. The food and service remain top tier. The Vinyard is still the best Italian dining experience in the Valley. I recommend it highly to anyone looking for great Italian cuisine. The prices are reasonable and the staff is always the best.

We really try hard to enjoy this restaurant. The food is really good old-time Italian , but the ambience is lacking. It just isn’t welcoming. You walk in ( if you can’t get in the parking lot, good luck) and no one Is welcoming. The restaurant has been redecorated ( no tablecloths, no personality) and without carpet or drapes it is really noisy. We shout through the meal when it’s busy.

We have come here for years because we love the food, but this last time was just so disappointing. Pretty much all about the food.

We are so glad it reopened. It was our go-to place before and we still love it. Good food, great staff! Feel very comfortable and at home there. We would recommend to everyone but we don't want it to get so popular that we cannot get a table.

Kitchen help obviously needed badly. Two hours seated before we ever received meals. We looked around the Restaurant 1 1/2 hours in and not one single table had dinners in front of them.
Very loud, hard to have a conversation.
Food was good once we received it, paid and bolted immediately, after finding our server and asking for bill. This used to be one of our favorite places to go.
