HOURS:  Daily 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

We have always liked Vino's and was surprised that a year or two had passed since we last visited.  Was not disappointed on this visit as both the food and service was good.  Surprising though that I did not like the By the Glass wine selections offered on the menu.  With a Sommelier as the Owner, I thought the wine offering would be better.  We were seated in the bar on this visit around 5:30 pm.  Place was filled on a Saturday night.  We started with the Morel Mushroom Loco Moco ($16) which was topped with an egg.  Not bad.  The Pickled Golden Beets ($15.95) were fresh and delicious.  Loved them.  The Bone Marrow ($16) was what can I say. Its Bone Marrow and so delicious.  Loved the Braised Short Rib Ragu served with it.  An appetizer in itself with the toasted bread. The Grilled Octopus ($16) was a little tough but I liked the Smoked Ham Hock Ragu with White Beans.  Caesar salad ($9.50) was good size so all three of us split it and enjoyed a little each.  By the time we got our entrees, we were all pretty much full and satisfied with the appetizers.  I ordered the Seafood Bolognese ($20.95).  Loved the Pasta and Seafood.  Really good dish that I ended up taking home and finishing the next night.  Would definitely order this again.  My Daughter enjoyed the Bolognese Pasta ($20.95) and my Wife liked the Whole Crispy Branzino ($25.95).  Overall the pricing here is good for Honolulu restaurants.  We have paid much more for less quality and taste.
