Last week the wife and I were out with friends as we were going to do dinner and a movie.

My friend Chris had suggested we try Vintner Grill (10100 W. Charleston Blvd.). He had been there a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

You may not find it on your first pass as it is located on the backside of an office building on West , but let me say it’s definitely worth the search.

The décor of the restaurant is breath taking. They have an outdoor patio that looks amazing at night with all the lights. I will be back to chill and have drinks on the patio. Having been there when it was still light out, we couldn’t get the full effect of the lights and fire pit.

We started off with some appetizers. The wife and I ordered the Treviso Caesar Salad wrapped in prosciutto with egg and Reggiano. This may have been the classiest presentation of a Caesar salad I have ever seen. As good as this dish looked, it was just as tasty.

We also ordered a few flat bread pizzas for the table with the spicy chicken being the favorite. The table next to us ordered the sweet butter lettuce salad served with warm Brie and an orange-balsamic vinaigrette dressing. That is on my list for my next visit.

They have an entire section on the menu of meats and cheeses so you can create your own appetizer plate to your liking. This would be a great way to go if you just want to chill with a glass of wine and enjoy some imported meats and cheeses with friends or that special someone.

For my entree choice I went with the veal scaloppini with crimini mushrooms in a Marsala sauce, accompanied by a side dish of capellini pasta with an aglio olio sauce. My dish was fantastic and I would order it again.

I also tried their free-range half chicken with a truffle honey mustard glaze. This honey mustard glaze gave the chicken a very flavorful outer crust that was excellent. I will be trying it as my dinner choice in an upcoming visit. They served a cavatelli mac and cheese as a side dish that went well with this chicken.

One of the house signature dishes is their braised lamb ossobucco. I saw several people at other tables having it and it looked really good. The Vintner Grill has something for everyone, including pasta and risotto dishes along with steaks and seafood.

My friend’s wife ordered the bouillabaisse, which was loaded with mussels, clams, shrimp, snapper, calamari and scallops in saffron broth. She enjoyed it immensely but it was too much for her to eat by herself.

I will be making a return trip to Vintner Grill real soon. This hidden gem was an excellent choice and one of my favorites in Summerlin. I give Vintner Grill 3.75 Forks.
