Our service was spot on fantastic. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is great. Cocktails are spot on. However, the food for the price is just not there.

The food [brunch] was so, so. I ordered eggs Benedict, the potatoes were dry and room temp and there was the skimpiest portion of ham on the serving.

The bloody Mary was a cocktail glass portion for $13.

I wouldn't order it ever again.

I have been eating at Paces & Vine for years and have been generally satisfied, but my latest meal wasn't the best. I ordered the special which the waiter clearly said was an 8 oz. chop. What I got were slices of pork tenderloin arranged over a "smear" of mashed potatoes. The amount of mashed potatoes was inadequate and the beans tasted watery and stringy. I was very disappointed with the meal. When I ask for a wine recommendation I have noticed over the years that I am always pointed to the most expensive wine by the glass. I tipped 30% because I asked for a couple of wine tastes before making my selection. Service was acceptable, but would appreciate either more water refills, or leave a small pitcher on the table.

Met a client here for lunch. I ordered a salad and she had the 1/2 and 1/2, which consisted of soup, salad, and sandwich. My salad was great and my client's meal looked fantastic. It was a little louder than anticipated but the service was great and we were not rushed at all.

Very disappointed, last visit here was very good. To begin, the brunch menu was not much to speak of and the fried chicken sandwich was just boring. The “kitchen “ was backed up all day but the place was not packed but food service was sooooo slooow. The free dessert softened the dissatisfaction but we would rather good and tasty food.

I made a reservation for Father's Day to try a new place. They were busy, but it took almost an hour to get our food, which was nothing special. The fried chicken was dry (chicken & waffles), the salad was pretty much lettuce, and the salmon was under cooked and had no seasoning at all. The best part was the bread basket, and the waiter kindly brought a second one 30 minutes into the wait for food. The ambiance was nice and the outside seating looked pleasant. Then a family came in and let their kids watch videos on electronic devices with no headsets. All in all, it was a bit of a blessing to spend extra time with my family, but have no reason to go back.

Usually one of our favorites, Paces & Vine really disappointed us on Father's Day. Our reservations were for 12:30p. When we arrived at 12:25p, they were already backed up and a large crowd started to form at the hostess stand. It was Father's day and there were several families with children. We were very cramped in the waiting space and we could see several empty tables. Once we sat down, our server was very nice. However, we didn't receive our meal until over an hour after our reservation time. There were several tables (with young children) who were not being served and everyone was getting anxious. When I spoke to the manager on duty, her response was rather flippant ("I'll let the general manager know . . "). I'm saddened that their poor planning put a damper on what was intended to be a nice family meal. The food was also very average. Not worth the long wait at all.

It’s Father’s Day, so I understand that restaurants are very busy, however we had to wait 35 minutes for our meals to be delivered, as we watched other diners who entered after we did eat their meals.

The quiche and grits were tasteless which was surprising given that we had excellent meals here previously. The omelet and French toast were fine.

The waitperson was fine; none of this was her responsibility.

Best bet for high quality food, drinks and service in Vinings. They are clearly well run, most servers seem experienced/well trained, hostess always acknowledged that we were repeat customers and the waiters did the same (we used to go so often they presented me with a loyalty card which was a nice perk). The menu is a good balance of standards that always satisfy with the welcome surprise so that it doesn't get dull. The mussels with grilled bread are worth skipping lunch for (and breakfast the next morning for that matter since you'll still be full...) and I don't usually eat them outside of France. Their custom, seasonal cocktails are well crafted and consistently executed. We recently booked a table for Father's day brunch and my husband, who is half Mexican, thought the huevos rancheros was excellent, my BLT was also and the portions were very generous. I'm always a little leery of special occasion brunches and they were very busy but our waiter communicated with us and still handled the "big little" things like bringing salt and condiments to the table quickly.

The menu was full of delicious choices. Also, when we went all bottles of wine were 50% off (this was on a Sunday and I am not sure how often they do this, but very nice). The service was great and our server, Omar, was very knowledgeable and nice. Their dessert was amazing! I highly recommend the bread pudding.
