Specializing in “Long Table Shared Plate Dinners”, Vine Eatery & Bar is the perfect place for larger groups who are looking for something a little different and entertaining.

Felt forgotten at the back of the restaurant. Service was pretty poor, server leaning across to serve the person next to me. Can be avoided as there was plenty of room. Rude and abrupt service by this older gentleman. Head server was nice in the beginning but he forgot about us after our order was taken. Ice cream was sitting on the pass for 5 minutes and then it was served melted. No excuse for this. Ask the chef to redo if it’s not up to standards. Understand it was a busy night so will probably rethink dining on a Saturday in future. Food was good though.

Had a fab dinner recently at Vine - the food was excellent and the service was great, initially a bit slow and it would be good if the kitchen and bar coordinated when the plan is to wine match but after that all was great - Barbara was a star. Going back - most definately.

The food was amazing, as was the wine. Although the staff were busy the service was impeccable, and even called a taxi for us after our meal was finished. I couldn't recommend Vine Eatery highly enough.

What an amazing night, the food was delicious, the service was excellent, such friendly staff. We were made to feel very welcome. The wine was lovely, we decided to have the Tapas for diner and a small rice seafood risotto then finished off with desert and a congac. Thank you to all the staff for such an amazing evening, we will be recommending you to our friends that make the trip to Taupo. Keep up the great work

Made a special trip on a journey from Napier to Tauranga as the restaurant was previously booked last time we were in Taupo. Disappointed with the quality of the Tapas and the fact that no Sherries were available to have with them. The kitchen needs to smarten up the quality of the Tapas, olives shouldn't be the cheapest variety from the supermarket. NZ makes some fantastic wines, need more good quality wines on your list.

Well sadly I was ignored for 15 minutes after getting my menu then my duck was over cooked twice! Then my bill was wrong. Basically all a disaster. Shame as I was looking forward to a lovely meal.

This was our second time at Vine whilst on vacation in Taupo. Best food in the area and the staff were amazing! Barbara was our waitress on both occasions and she was great! Max was the best bartender ever and really knows how his stuff: ask him for his signature cocktail and you won't be disappointed!

Great food and wine (the largest wine glasses I have ever seen). A cool wine/bar eatery in the heart of Taupo. We would definately go there again.

Excellent service & food on a busy Saturday evening. Strongly suggest diners make reservations on weekends / holidays to avoid disappointment as Vine is very popular. Glenis
