    Chez Vincent is a jewel of a restaurant, with an excellent dinner menu and very professional and friendly wait staff. It is our "go to" place when we want to treat ourselves or friends to a special meal, and we have never been disappointed there after many visits. Its friendly ambience has made us always as welcome at CZ as if we were having dinner in a private home.

    A first experience with Chez Vincent for us, but we'll gladly be back. From the delicious carrot soup through the flour-less chocolate cake for desert, everything was good. We opted for wines by the glass to accompany the meal, and both the red and white were very good to accompany our meals.

    Chez Vincent is an excellent restaurant in Winter Park, FL with the feel of Paris. The food, the service and the ambience are wonderful. It is elegant and comfortable. From traditional French cuisine to their daily specials there is something for everyone's taste. Whether a local or tourist, when in Winter Park, FL do not miss Chez Vincent.

    Amazing French food! I was a little nervous taking my foodie friends to a place that I have never before tried however Chez Vincent did not disappoint. Great atmosphere, great service and fantastic food. The venison dish was possibly the best that I have ever tried and the pumpkin souffle was to die for. I was even impressed that the Chef came out into the resturant to interact with the guests. We will definitley be back.

    We loved the quiet atmoshere of the dining room. It was easy to have a conversation. The food was excellent tasting. I thought the filet portions were a little small, but very tender and tasty. The appetizers were great and salads were delightful and fresh. What a great wine list to choose from as well. The owner Vincent came out to our table and visited with us. I thought that was wonderful. A very pleasant gentleman. I would definately come back again. Loved it!

    What an excellent dinning experience! I would recommend it to anybody who appreciates great food and service. For appetizer I had foiegras seared with apples in a delicious brandy (?)sauce. I have to go back just to try it again and beg for recipe. Venison was perfect as well. So were rack of lamb and seafood sampler platter of my companions. Great wine selection, specially Bordeaux, my favorite. Also very nice single malts list. What a wonderful evening we had! Flawless food and service. Will definitely go back.

    We too took advantage of the Magical Dining Menu on Saturday night. I understand that this is not "Top Shelf", but overall compared to other French cuisine restaurants this meal was middle of the pack. Location is cute, and not jammed like Park Ave. it was very busy, so a bit noisy, but not table to table, just overall. We enjoyed the dinner, but not enough to return.

    We went as a group of four to Chez Vincent, each celebrating an anniversary. We were so excited about this venue from all the revues we read. The restaurant itself has a very old world, romantic feel and the servers were very pleasant. We ordered from the September special dining menu because we felt we would get the most variety without overindulging. Unfortunately, that may have been our dinners' demise. The appetizers were fair at best. The grouper was overwhelmed with sauce. The pork was over cooked. We requested a bottle of sweet, white wine, and were provided with one that was very acidic in nature. The items we enjoyed most were our desserts. Unfortunately we will not be back.

    The waitstaff at the restaurant were stellar in my opinion. They were very attentive and we never went without anything. The ambiance was very nice, and did have a little bistro feel. We had a great table with plenty of room, but I could imagine that it would get crowded if we went in later. We did a combination of the magical dining menu and the regular menu so that we could try two different soups. The cream of mushroom soup was AMAZING and I would go back to Chez Vincent just for it. The proteins were cooked flawlessly. My only compliant was that the side dishes seemed lackluster in comparison, lacking both flavor and imagination. We also ordered the souffle' which was kinda bleh.

    My wife and I had a lovely, memorable meal. The service was worthy of a 25% tip. There was music playing, but we felt that something a little more instrumental would have enhanced the ambiance. The noise level was quiet, which was great. I actually want to hear the person with whom I'm having a conversation.

    We drove a long way to try this restaurant. Apertiziers (squid, snails, onion soup) were very good. Grouper was on the bland side but orange duck was quite tasty. Deserts are all excellent. Service was the best - our water glasses were always full and multiple people served and checked in on us. Wine and beer recommendations were perfect as well. I would recommend this restaurant, but I will not go back too soon due to the distance.

    The service and the ambiance of the place were quite good. The special of the day was veal, which tasted good, but was particularly stringy. The suggested wine went well with the meal. The big disappointment was with the desert. Tarte Tatin is one of my favorites, but they somehow managed to make the crust very soggy. All that would not have been so bad, but for a $70 meal, I expect much better.

    1. The food is all right, although not expensive. 2. Service was not professional, although helpful. 3. For lunch, the mashed potatoes and the crepe were reaheated in the microwave, although the beef b. was very good. It is a pitty that one good thing is spoiled by a lazy kitchen service. 4. Fish with too many spices, certainly not French. 5. For dinner, the waiter was helpful but far from professional. 6. I requested a table for seven, then called to add two people and they did not know. It´s a good place to visit but not too often. I hope it improves. Finally, it is good, but not great.
