Best time to visit
Coal Vines is a casual food Italian restaurant with several locations in Texas and one in Kansas City, Missouri. Pizza and wines are mainstay items, but the menu also includes bruschetta and garlic bread appetizers as well as salads and soups. Pasta, chicken and sandwiches are the primary entrees. A brunch service is available on weekends. Happy hour drinks specials are offered from 3:00-6:00pm and again from 9:00pm until closing.
The first Coal Vines opened in the Uptown part of Dallas in 2006. This location opened in 2013. The restaurant concept is slightly upscale but still casual and contemporary. It’s a relatively open space with brick accents, wine bottle decorations and black tones. The servers wear all black and the napkins are black as well. Noise levels were average to loud on a Wednesday night when the restaurant was about half full. The classic rock music was inaudible at times.
The server gets high marks for patience and professionalism. She waited politely while we dithered over tables. There was plenty of terrace seating, but the heat made it less welcome. You really have to go with red wine when ordering pizza at an Italian restaurant, and there were plenty of options. A 14 Hands Cabernet and Seghesio Zinfadel were both enjoyable. The server offered a sample of each before pouring the glasses. Appetizers included a caprese salad (without basil) and a smoked salmon tartare. The caprese was good enough to order again but was not off the charts. The tomatoes were ripe and fresh and the cheese soft and slightly peppery, with a slight edge to the tomatoes over the cheese on taste. As for the salmon, it was a modest portion, somewhat bland, and had excessive wonton type chips. The cream cheese did not blend well with the salmon - a dish worth passing on. An entrée of margherita pizza was ordered with less cheese and extra onions and spinach. It was appetizing but again not a home run on taste. Also, on a side note, the plates had fine powder on them like pizza dough flour, so cleanliness is an area for improvement. Tiramisu cake is great conceptually yet not always well delivered. The Coal Vines tiramisu was excellent, light, sweet and creamy and with a slight coffee taste. Eating here was good but not great. Prices were reasonable, but portions were generally modest. Service was strong, but background noise was somewhat bothersome. It was good enough though to merit a return visit at a slower time to try out more of the food.
