  • "...at Chez Vincent. The cuisine is excellent, the service as well. To say nothing about the ambiance, which is lovely and elegant. All in all, a great dining experience."

  • "Went to celebrate our 35th anniversary. The food was salty. The vegetables were dried out, almost like it sat under a heat lamp too long. Our waiter was new and not very knowledgeable about the menu....He was friendly enough. We opted to go somewhere else for desert and coffee. We had been considering this location for a while, since we dine quite a bit in the Park Avenue corridor. Not a fan!!"

  • "We loved both the food and service - very knowledgeable about the wines and helped us make great selections. The souffle was to die for and a real hit with all 6 of us! They also make great cocktails in the bar at Hannibals."

  • "WE WENT HERE FOR MY 60TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION. THE THREE OF US CHOSE THE FILET, SINCE THIS WAS THE ONLY "BEEF" SELECTION. WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH OUR CHOICE. IT WASN'T "TENDER" AS WE HAD HOPED. MY SON AND I CHOSE TO GO AHEAD AND EAT OURS, BUT MY HUSBAND RETURNED HIS. THE WAITRESS SAID IT WOULD TAKE SEVEN MINUTES TO MAKE ANOTHER SELECTION. HE CHOSE THE LAMB. IT WAS OVER 15 MINUTES AND WE HAD FINISHED OUR MEALS. HE HAD TO GET HIS TO GO. THE CHEF NEVER CAME OUT TO APOLOGIZE, AND NOBODY SEEMED TO CARE WE WEREN'T ENJOYING OUR MEAL. THIS WASN'T A "HAPPY" OCCASION, AND I WOULD NEVER CHOOSE IT AGAIN, OR RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO MY FRIENDS OR FAMILY."

  • "We went for a Mother's Day lunch so I don't know if the menu was special for that, but it was bad. I'm not a terribly picky person and never leave reviews, but this instance was exceptional. I got the Cream of Mushroom soup, which was really great, but my main of pork was really small and was composed of the pork and a set of sides that they used for every other dish that day. My wife ordered salmon and received probably 2oz of salmon with sauce and the same sides set as my pork (cabbage and two very small carrots). The cake for dessert was offensively dry (seriously) and sliced incredibly thin (probably 1/2" or less?). Then waiters were telling customers not to order certain things because they weren't fresh. Just odd and bad! :("

  • "Our party of three arrived at Chez Vincent at 5:45pm on a Thursday. We were there to celebrate a birthday and were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Our charming French waitress was Laurie, who was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu choices. Laurie remembered our favorite wine from an earlier visit, and in short order we were toasting the birthday celebrant. Our seafood choices were done to perfection by Chef/Owner Vincent. It was a most enjoyable experience for our small group, and of course we shall be back. Actually, each time we have dined at CV it has been a celebration, not always for a specific occasion, but because the staff, the food, the ambience and Vincent make it a celebration for the guests.

  • "My husband and I took our son out to dinner to celebrate his 21st birthday. He had asked us to take him to a french restaurant with a french speaking staff. Well he got his wish. The server greeted him in french and allowed him to order his dinner in french. He is getting ready to go to U.C.F to study french. The food was excellent and the experience will be etched in our minds forever. I can not wait to take my daughter there for dinner or dessert. We were fortunate enough to have a lovely young french lady serve us. We will be back very soon. "

  • "The menu was limited understandably due to the holiday and we knew that was the case when we made the reservations. We arrived early and got in right away and got a window table as requested. We enjoyed our meal and particularly enjoyed our server, Louis. He was great and a delight; made our dining experience special."

  • "A true French restaurant, where the emphasis is on quality, not quantity. The service was impeccable, and the atmosphere is very nice. I highly recommend Chez Vincent!"

  • "We had a great experience -the fish combo and sea bass dinners were amazing. Our server recommended a lovely wine and it hit the mark. Enjoyable enough to send the owners a message and thank them. A Couple of Kidds loved it and will be back!"

  • "We had a great ride out from hotel. Food and service top notch. But if you go be sure you arrange for return transport.....we waited two hours and only got one cab for six people....ruined what could have been a perfect evening"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "As a Frenchman, I unfortunately did not find the food at this restaurant to be worth the French Cuisine label, and consequently the price of it. The menu and wine list looked very enticing, but the appetizers and entrees overall came out as a disappointment. The foie gras special was very good, but the pate was really bland and the duck, interestingly, did not taste la duck. Im not sure why. I particularly remember having the mashed potatoes crusted dry on the outside and the snap beans stuck to the plate likely because the plate was composed in advance and kept in a warmer oven. I expected enough respect for quality cuisine that the plates were going to be prepared freshly, especially as this was a slow evening for them (week day)."

  • "This is a wonderful restaurant in Winter Park for Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner. The staff is very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Expect some traditional French fare which is excellent. They can accommodate small or large groups. The décor is very warm and inviting. When at Hannibal Square in Winter Park, Chez Vincent is a don't miss."

  • "This totally French resto was recommended to us by someone who said, "it's really French, not like some of the others who pretend to be French." We found this to be true. The food was excellent - I had cream of mushroom soup that was the best I ever had and my husband's sea bass was perfect - one of the specials. I ordered off the regular menu and my fish seemed a bit dry and too salty but not send back worthy. I'd stick to the specials next time. it was excellent all in all."

  • "Living in NY there is a ton of good places to eat we looked at reviews and decided to try this place while on vacation and I wished we didn't waste our money The bill was over $250 for 4 people and we are not heavy drinkers The food was ok. It wasn't good and it wasn't bad. For the price you expect it to be outstanding. Not many people were in the restaurant and that should have been our first clue to try somewhere else on the Square. The service is on the borderline between not being rushed, and horribly slow. I had the escargots appetizer in the puff pastry, which I later regretted I should have just stuck to the traditional way The puff pastry didn't add anything, and the sauce on the plate was way too salty take your money go elsewhere"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The food was very, very good. The service was great as well. We went on a weekday night and it was very slow and too quiet for us. Great if you want a quiet dinner but underwhelming if you are looking for an active Winter Park location."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "For the price point I was quite underwhelmed. Though the service staff was friendly and accommodating, I found the food knowledge lacking. They were able to describe the dishes well, but unable to answer specific questions such as "which cut of meat are you serving and how is it prepared." Lack of specific knowledge was explained once our entrees were served. It was basically well plated banquet food. I nice piece of meat paired with mediocre sauce and steamed vegetables. Which are generally signs of an efficient, but less creative environment. Though the ambiance was pleasant and we were treated well, I do not think we will return. It is simply too much of a disapointment to grossly overpay for an underwhelming dining experience."

  • "We loved our recent lunch experience at Chez Vincent. The food, atmosphere and service were impeccable! Our server was pleasant, professional and knowledgable about the menu and wine list. As always, the food was amazing! Our guests really enjoyed the escargots in garlic butter, the tomato and basil soup and the Cesar Salad to start. The entrees were equally delicious, particularly the sauteed chicken breast with mushrooms, diced apples, calvados liquer with a touch of cream and the crab cake with mango sauce. Thank you, Chez Vincent, for making our special celebration memorable."

  • "We frequent many of the Winter Park restaurants but had never taken the opportunity to eat at Hannibal's. Took my wife here for her birthday and really enjoyed it with my wife saying its one of the best dinners she's ever had! Rack of Lamb was excellent as was the tuna. Large overstuffed chairs were too big for us making you sink and sit back. Even with the small back pillow, I do not recommend you sit in these chairs unless you are over 6 feet tall! Sit at one of the center table with regular chairs and you will be more comfortable. Overall excellent experience and highly recommended."

  • "In all, we had an enjoyable evening. However, the server was average and really didn't seem as if he wanted to wait on us. I would think that the service in a prominent place as Chez Vincent, would be outstanding across the board especially when there were only 3 tables. The food was excellent, although, even with appetizers, bread and some deserts, we left feeling a bit hungrier then expected for the cost."

  • "Place empty Sunday brunch, should have turned and left! VERY expensive! (9$ mimosas?) French toast with canned peaches? Broken yolks on eggs benni? Cheap bread for sandwiches and for no customers a painfully long wait......150$$ for 5 people and escargots appetizer never showed up:-(. Never again!"

  • "We had a nice dinner at Chez Vincent --a nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient service. While the food was good, it was uneven in quality. For example, the pate was bland, relatively tasteless; the soups were good but not exceptional; the lamb was the best course of the evening; pork tenderloins were good. Side dishes were fine. Considering the price, we did not find this either exceptional. We will probably not return."

  • "We really liked the small, quaint atmosphere of this place. Service was prompt and efficient. Our waiter returned often to our table to check on us and refilled our drinks. He was quite knowledgeable of the menus selections and offered suggestions. Our food was good, we started with soup and the cream of carrot and cream of mushroom soups were delicious! Our main meal dishes were good, not outstanding. The tables are a bit close together, would be nice to separate them a bit more. Excellent selection of wines to choose from"
