I have been going to Vinnys for several years through its three different sets of owners. It started out outstanding and has gone downhill since. What used to be a favorite I will no longer go to after my experience this week. Their menu claims each ingredient is fresh yet it is highly evident that every piece of meat or seafood coming out of the kitchen has been frozen. The sauce had seperated in my seafood fettucini and the seafood tasted way past its prime. My wife's shrimp was cold, bland and so overcooked they were like gnawing an jerky Sending them back didn't help it was almost like they returned sfter bring run through a microwave. After tasting the various other dishes members of my party ordered my wife and I just decided to go elsewhere. One woman in my party had the worst eggplant I had ever tasted.

The next time I come ip from Seattle I will save my money as Vinnys is not inexpensive and instead go to one of the finer resturaunts in town

I love Italian food and this was the only place that satisfied my need to have it. The service was so quick and friendly, recommending food that after tasting, was well recommended! The dessert just topped off my night (and the space in my stomach) and I don't think I've ever enjoyed a meal as much! Go here please and enjoy yourselves as much as I did.

We visited Vinny's last weekend 9/26. We had a beautiful view of the water still, despite the condos. The food was beyond wonderful, complete with complimentary bread, oil, balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic. My husband had the best flat iron steak and veggies he's ever had and I had the best seafood fettucini I've ever had - full of seafood - clams, oysters, mussels, prawns, salmon, scallops, finished with a basil garlic cream sauce to die for. The service was exceptional and we will definitely be returning here! The prices were also very good compared to the waterfront restaurants.

Pros: exceptional service, amazing food, good prices

Cons: uhhh....none!

We are planning on dinner here when we return this summer. I don't remember service or selection that we found here anywhere in Puget Sound, to be honest. This is one of my favorite restaurants after one visit in June 2008.

This Italian restaurant used to be one of our favorites, unfortunately it has completely lost it's view of the ocean due to condo development, so there is no view. The food was so so , menu is a lot smaller and I found out they no longer serve complimentary bread rolls with roasted garlic, olive oil, and balsamic like before. Maybe they are cutting costs? It is under new ownership. The pasta dish I had was very dry and flavorless, a bit cold, with gobs of goat cheese?? Didn't get it. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Honestly next time I want some good Italian food I'll cook it at home. Not impressed.

Truly a fine dining experience. This is an upscale (expensive) restaurant with most excellent service and an extensive wine list. The service is impeccable, waitstaff can be entertaining or circumspect - your choice. Had an excellent view of Friday Harbor, but now is partially obscured by development.Definitely worth consideration for the special occasion. The food is well prepared to your specification. We have always enjoyed the evening. Reservations are recommended.
