My husband and I chose Tapping The Vine for my birthday celebration. It was everything I imagined and more! The ambiance, staff, food, and wine selection was perfect. We ordered both red and white wine flights, half & half charcuterie, two entries, dessert and ports....it was all delicious! We can't wait to return!

Tapping the vine is a lovely wine bar/restaurant in downtown Safety Harbor. It has an inviting interior and lovely outside seating as well. They have a wine club, and have $5 wine tastings on Tuesdays. Dinner is delicious. Last night I had the scallops with risotto - great risotto! My shrimp and chicken chowder was bursting with interesting flavors and... More

Chef Christina is amazing. They constantly have menu changes and new food to try. Don't miss her scallops! The owners and wait staff are always sweet and conversant! Just a lovely restaurant to have a quiet meal and wine.

My sister and I were searching for a new place to have a light dinner before a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall. We arrived about 630 and were shown several seating options including a nice outdoor patio but choose a cozy spot inside. Our very thorough server explained the menu and the small plate theme was perfect for our wishes.... More

Tapping the Vine is a quaint restaurant and wine bar. They have a selection of craft beers, as well, but are the only area place with such a good selection of wine. Each Tuesday they have a wine tasting of different wines. You can get a complimentary cheese plate for only a few additional dollars. Friendly, knowledgeable staff are anxious... More

A great place for relaxing, chilling out. Enjoying some great food, along with a wine and beer selection, that seems endless. They have a great cafe style outdoor seating area under beautiful oak trees, located right on main street. If it's too hot, no worries, the inside seating area is also very nice, even some couch areas, for sips and... More

Tapping the Vine is our favorite place to dine any time we are in Safety Harbor. We ate their both nights of our most recent trip. The owners are so pleasant and really care about their customers. There is indoor and outdoor seating. We prefer to eat outdoors in the charming courtyard. We always eat off of the tapas menu.... More

Great selection of wine and food to go along with it. I also really enjoy the set up inside the restaurant , it had a laid back atmosphere which goes well with the wine. My girlfriend and I visited this place multiple times and really enjoyed it every time.

Welcome to Tapping The Vine™. We hope you enjoy many visits with us online and in person. When we think of wine and beer or any drink for that matter, we have one "rule". If you like it, drink it! No snobbery here. Our selections are from across the country and around the world; we taste each one for quality to insure they are worthy. We like to share food and good times and offer a range of tastes. Many foods we offer are smaller dishes (aka tapas). Seasonal dishes enter and leave our menu regularly. You'll not find a "theme" to our menus other than quality and variety. For those more familiar with the world of wine, Tapping The Vine™ is the only location in north Pinellas County to have received the prestigious Wine Spectator 2014 Award of Excellence. We invite you to review the Wine Spectator by clicking on the Award logo. Tapping The Vine™ is yours to enjoy in a quiet, tasteful setting indoors or under the shady oaks outside on our delightful patio. Bring your pets to the patio, too. You can also make group reservations - just ask us. We'll be glad to help. We look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events. Let us challenge your taste buds at one of our wine tastings. Check our calendar for future dates and look over the "Specials" page in the menu section of the site. You'll see us in and around the community supporting our friends and neighbors, too. We look forward to seeing you, somewhere.
