Ate here recently in the company of three adults on a slow Thursday evening. Efficient staff in a lovely cozy setting provided a great backdrop for a lovely evening. We decided to order for the table; chicken skewers, ribs, quesadillas, risotto, bruscetta (8 pieces!), chicken & chorizo, patatas bravas!!! That should do four people! A bottle of wine, a glass of Rose and a soft drink rounded off the order. Without exception, each dish, very well presented, was delicious. Absolutely delicious. A lone disc of bruscetta and a single chicken skewer were the sole survivers, some 40 minutes later. Cannot wait to revisit. Excellent attention too from the only waitress on duty, ably assisted by the chef upstairs.

Myself and my husband eat here all the time and the service, food and wine are always excellent. The only downside is what appears to be the restaurant supervisor/manager he could do with a bit of work on his personality, he's not the friendliest and always makes me feel that he'd rather be somewhere else. As a result after usually having a great meal, I leave with a slight feeling of dissatisfaction that what should have been a great evening was just ok! But the food and wine always brings me back in.

We had wandered into The Grapevine one Saturday night without a reservation and were told the restaurant was fully booked and turned away at the door. The place looked nice and I thought it must be really good considering it was booked out so we decided we make a reservation the next time we were in Kilkenny.
Unfortunately the place didn't live up to our expectations. The food is fairly bland and the service, although friendly, was very slow. The wine was good and the atmosphere was ok. Toilets right outside the kitchen a bit of a turn off. Would not be rushing back...

We visited without a reservation, but were given a lovely table. Good service but should check in on customers a little more often perhaps, really tasty food and the wine of the month was a winner!!! A bit drafty around the entrance, but the ambience is really cosy!!! Delighted we visited!!

We were hoping for something a little more Italian judging by the name, but it was a cute little locals place so we sat and had a glass of wine before moving on.
