“The Vintana menu is on the pricey side, but it's well worth it when you are looking for a special night out. The food is filling, full of flavor and exquisite in presentation. They have Happy Hour from 6-8 and fun special events like "Luau on the Lanai" so check their calendar for the latest! Tip: It is located on the penthouse level of the local Lexus dealership, so don't be surprised when your GPS leads you to a car dealership. You're at the right place!”
