Our Story 1

“The kind of dining you would expect to see in New York or Los Angeles.”

- TripAdvisor

Whenever you choose to dine at The Vine, a few things you can always count on:

  • Each plate is created with the freshest ingredients
  • We use fresh local produce whenever possible.
  • An expansive selection of local wines from the Walla Walla region or internationally famous ciders from the Columbia Basin for the perfect pairing of your meal.

Transportation to The Vine is an Issue?
If you would like to dine at The Vine, but the driving distance (25 miles from Walla Walla, 25 miles from Pasco, or 30 miles from Hermiston) is an obstacle for you, please consider our Luxury Ride and Dine Service. This is a relatively inexpensive way to enjoy the luxury of high-end dining and uniquely luxurious transportation all in one package!

Choose from the outdoor patio tables or inside our beautiful dining room. The Vine is the perfect upscale location for a romantic date night or to celebrate a special occasion.

The Vine is located within Cameo Heights Mansion, about 25 miles west of Walla Walla and 25 miles east of Tri-Cities. It has been recognized and awarded several times by OpenTable.com, based upon users reviews, with the Diners’ Choice awards, as well as multiple awarding of the prestigious Best Overall Restaurant, and Best Food, and Best Ambiance in the Seattle / Eastern Washington region (practically speaking, the whole state of Washington!).

  • Holiday Brunches:  We choose not to do special holiday brunches, such as Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, for two reasons: They are on Sunday and at a later hour that we want to provide meal service on a Sunday. 
  • Large groups on Sunday: We reserve the right to decline some requests for Sunday breakfast service for groups over 6 depending upon our availability and the size of your group. 

Our Personal Promise from the owners of The Vine

Our perpetual purpose and aim is for your complete satisfaction with every aspect of your dining experience. We assure you that the management and staff are constantly seeking how to achieve near perfect meal service for every guest of The Vine.

However, we have learned by sad experience that we may not be able to guarantee complete dining satisfaction every time for every guest. Perfect guest satisfaction is a moving and ambiguous target. What totally delights one customer may not be satisfying to another. But that doesn’t diminish in any way our thrust to achieve dining excellence. Simply said, though we can’t realistically guarantee perfection, we promise you that our persistent goal will always be: Dining Excellence for Every Guest, Every Time. 

While dining with us, please tell your server if, for any reason, any aspect of your food service is not completely satisfactory, thus giving us a chance to rectify it while you are still seated at the table. We won’t belittle any complaint from a customer. You are king. We are here to serve you.  
 
We would also appreciate your public feedback on TripAdvisor.com, Google, Yelp, and OpenTable.com so the general public becomes informed of what their expectations should be when they come to dine at The Vine.
