"Finally found my own personal Cheers. Food is delicious with a few delightfully unexpected pairings. Cocktails are even better-especially when made by Cesar. Our go to is the deconstructed G&T but today we are trying a new creation of his. Bring an appetite, sit at the bar and relax!"

"This place is real gem and consistently delivers quality food and drinks. Speaking of drinks, go see Cesar at the bar! He is one of the THE BEST bartender’s in the burbs and always makes you feel welcomed."

"Barrel & Vine was fantastic. Food and service were some of the best we have ever had. The charcuterie is outstanding. Everyone loved their entrees. Great atmosphere and location in downtown Lemont, which is very cute. We'll be back."

"Brought a group of 17 for a business dinner and we were well looked-after. Didn't even notice that there was a back room, which we ended up having to ourselves. We very much appreciated the ability to order off the regular menu despite the large size of the group. Everyone was happy with dinner, steaks especially were really well-prepared and the various kinds of fries/potatoes were great. Drinks were enjoyed and delivered promptly. The back room was very quiet even though the main restaurant area was completely full when we arrived!"

"Moved to Lemont about a year ago it was my first time trying any restaurants around the downtown Lemont area and I must say I wasn’t disappointed at all. Everything was amazing. We went out on our date night, we tried several drinks and appetizers and I was very impressed. Definitely making it our favorite spot in downtown Lemont."

"First time I went to Barrel and Vine for dinner with my Wife and we loved not only the food and drinks but also the service . From the moment we walked in everyone was nice . But the best part was the Bartender/ server . Believe his name was Cesar Lopez . Not only did he was nice but served us some amazing drinks . He always made sure we enjoyed the different drink he made us but also made sure we were taken cared . He was friendly and and had great costumer service. We found a new place that has great food and drinks and that makes us feel very comfortable ."

"Ate at Barrel n Vine last night. Waiter was Jave! He was very pleasant shared his knowledge of the chef's passion of wonderful meals and the menu.. we decided on the Braised beef ribs over mashed.. one of us paired with Revolution Octoberfest, one had a Malbec. We had the BEST meal served in a restaurant in maybe 7 years. I too have passion for cooking, Im seldom suprised. This menu item was fantastic! Thank you chef!"

"Barrel & Vine has been a FANTASTIC addition to our Lemont dining scene. Dorthy & Larry are great hosts and doing a terrific job bringing some new dishes to town. I haven't had a meal that wasn't way above average at B & V. Nice custom drinks, too go along nicely with the wine selection. The staff has always been attentive. I'm sure you enjoy it as much as I have!"

Jeanette - 9/4/2021
"My fiancé and I went here last night for the first time and we had the absolute best server. Her name is Kayla and she came around and checked on us just frequently enough to not be intrusive, she was so friendly, and always made sure we had what we needed. I let her know how great she did, and looked around for the manager to tell them but did not see anyone nearby on the way out, otherwise her manager would have been told verbally too. On top of the great service the food and drinks were great as well, I will definitely be returning to Barrel and Vine."
Diane Turnbull - 9/2/2021
"My husband and I have been here 3 times now with friends and have made quite a dent in trying as many different dishes as possible. There has yet to be one that wasn't liked and enjoyed ! The food is delicious and you can tell that fresh ingredients are used. The drinks are pretty darn good as well. My husbands Old Fashion was top notch. We will continue to bring friends and spread the word of the great atmosphere, wait staff and above all FOOD !"
Robert C - 9/2/2021
"Newer place, somewhat upscale, diverse menu (for the burbs). I believe they have a REAL chef(s) as opposed to so many suburban restaurants which just have ”cooks”. It shows in the food quality which is very good. Soups were very nice as were main courses. I especially liked the cheese and meat beard. Service was good as well as friendly and knowledgeable. Very clean and appears to be newly renovated. Our only criticism is for a venue with wine specialty, they do not have a very large selection. Perhaps that will be remedied in time. Prices are fair for the level of quality. Definitely will return."
Mike Gorski - 8/30/2021
"Was there for a birthday party and had about 20 or so in our group. The servers were excellent, on their game, and ensured we were taken care of. The food was quite good and enjoyed by everyone. Would recommend this place to anyone and I look forward to visit again."
Nicole Kowalczyk - 8/29/2021
"The brunch menu is limited but we got the Cuban and steak sandwich. Both were delicious. The truffle fries are amazing."

"Dorothy is awesome and my wife loves the way Avery makes the Old Fashioned."
Katherine Gal - 8/22/2021
"Everything was great. The decor is beautiful. The food is fresh and delicious. The service was efficient and friendly. Kid friendly. The perfect restaurant for the suburbs, I have been waiting for a Wicker-Park-feel without the two hour drive to the city."
Melissa Gleason - 8/22/2021
"Phenomenal experience at Barrel & Vine. Party of 6 and Grant was our awesome and attentive server. He was working so hard he was breaking a sweat. Drinks were great. Food was exceptional! Braised short ribs and the short rib bolognese were definitely more than worthy to write home about. Don't get me started on the skillet salted caramel cookie dessert a la mode. I was in heaven. Against my better judgement of keeping this place a secret for selfish reasons, HIGHLY recommended to enjoy for a casual night, for a more formal evening with the in laws, or even a group of 8-10! They are accommodating for all and many! Excited for this new spot in Lemont!"
Nina Pellicci - 8/18/2021
"I'm so excited to have this restaurant close to home! The menu is unique to any other restaurant in the area and I love that it's not focused on one type of cuisine. Every dish I've tried has been delicious and the service is great! The ingredients are fresh and taste homemade. The fried pierogi appetizer topped with sauteed onions and bacon to the cream of asparagus or french onion soup, the burrata or quinoa salad, the next day I'm craving the dishes again!"
Justin Harrison - 8/17/2021
"Excellent service!"
Holly Thibert - 8/16/2021

"OMG, we live about 40 mins away and wanted to try something new. The service and atmosphere was amazing but the food is off the charts. We started with the bruschetta and was not disappointed. We paired our stuffed pork chop and short rib bolognese with Brussel Sprouts and a bottle of Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc… the food is amazing!!! You have to check this place out!!"

It’s the perfect place to grab delicious, thoughtfully crafted food and great drinks with friends, or just chill at the bar. Already tried multiple things off the menu and got a different cocktail each time. All of them wonderful. Gotta try the truffle fries, they’re the best lol"

"From start to finish you will be delighted! The food so delicious, 5-star quality and 5-star service. This couple Larry and Dorothy never stopped running and welcomed every single guest and chatted at every table making sure things were just right! You feel at home when you walk in the door?? We started with the barratta as an appetizer so good! My main course the Fresh fish special:Halibut was so flavorful and steaming hot over a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and grilled Brussels sprouts! Rick had the Chimichurri steak it was so tender melted in your mouth and garlic Mashed potatoes. Every thing was great we will be back! Congratulations what a lucky Town Lemont is to have such a trendy fine dining restaurant!"
