Don't waste your time or money!!!!!!!!!!!
I've never taken the time out to write a review, but after the unacceptable service my friends and I received (while celebrating a birthday), I figured I owed future diners a preview of a night out at Coal Vines. The evening started out with a 90 minute wait, but what do you expect since the entire restaurant is made up of about twenty tables. We stood outside by the door, drinking the wine we bought at the overcrowded bar, since there was inadequate seating in the restaurant. When we were finally seated, we were rushed through our mediocre dinner, and our glasses and plates were cleared when it was obvious our evening there was not over yet. The final straw was when the host came to our table and said, ""Are you about ready to go, we still have lots of people waiting to be seated."" A fellow patron at another table overheard the host and was just as disgusted as we were. I approached the owner about the horrible experience we received at his establishment, and instead of trying to rectify the horrible service, he defended his host. I let him know that we would not be recommending this restaurant to anyone, and he said, ""please don't"", so that is exactly what I am doing. There are plenty of other trendy eateries in Dallas that offer impressive service with food worth a 90 minute wait. Do yourself a favor and take your money anywhere besides Coal Vines. Campisi's pizza is by far superior anyway!
