Our waiter was excellent,
Our waiter was excellent, I was a little worried because we had a play afterward so timing was critical and on-lines review weren't all complimentary about the service. No problem there - the waiter was very friendly and knowledgable and timely. The food was excellent too. We tried Coq au vin; trout and chilean sea bass. We were very early 5:45 on Saturday and the place really filled up while we were there. Only downside was a rather chilly greeting as we entered. I'd highly recommend it - all around our experience was very good.

Funky and Delicious!
Found Hannibal's while searching for live music. Excellent acoustic guitarist who plays funky and current cover songs. But what really struck me was the atmosphere! Such a cool vibe! We sat at a table with big blue velvet chairs back in the corner (would have been romantic if it had been a date), had DELICIOUS food (Chef came out and talked to us, and even took my special request to modify his food for lower-calorie content...and seemed perfectly happy about it!) Server was super attentive and friendly (he seemed like he miight be a manager or co-owner, he took so much care). Absolutely loved everythiing about our experience.

Chez Vincent never disappoints!!
Chez Vincent is truly a wonderful place to dine. The food is consistently excellent. I've never had a meal here that wasn't absolutely delicious. Try the mussels - the sauce is to die for!

We had been wanting to eat at Chez Vincent for some time, but never were able to do so until Mother's Day weekend. My wife and I decided that we would set up a lunch date just for us. The experience could not have been more wonderful! The atmosphere was great, the service exactly what you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber, and the food.....absolutely out of this world delicious!!! And don't forget to have dessert!

Excellent food and atmosphere.
The food is beautifully done,and the wine good, up to French standards. The service was very timely and friendly. NIce choice of atmosphere; you can choose the quieter Chez Vincent, which seems more traditional, or Hannibal's where the bar is located.

Good but not outstanding
The food was good and so was the service but the atmosphere was more casual than we expected from a french restaurant.

Chez Vincent did not disappoint!
This was my first visit to Chez Vincent but it won't be my last. The food was perfectment! My filet minon was was so tender, cooked exactly as I like it. The blue cheese sauce was divine as well as the creme brulee.

French treasure in Winter Park
We felt like we were dining in a small restaurant in southern France. Quiet romantic ambiance and mostly couples dining. Wait staff very friendly and happy. Food delicious and beautifully presented. We will be returning often.

The cuisine and the ambience are wonderful at Chez Vincent.

Really enjoyed the carrot soup and the grouper. Didn't really like the souffle dessert. Wish I had tried something else.

The food was excellent as well as the service. The owner came to our table and asked about the food - nice touch!

Magical Dining Month (September) offered a $33 3-course meal that was good but not spectacular. Wine List is way over priced in our experience.

Excellent food+outstanding service
I would definitely recommend this place especially for a nice date night. The food was exceptional but what stood out to me most was how great the service and hospitality was. I know I will be returning soon!

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.

First time diners but we will return!

We loved the ambiance of this restaurant. The food was delicious. We waited a bit before our order was taken. But it definitely was worth the wait. The veal is the most tender melt in your mouth veal I have ever eaten. And the warm french bread was out of this world. Would definitely recommend.

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.

Very Good Food & Service
Had heard good things about this place, and it more than lived up to its reputation. Very European ambience, superb food presented just as well as it would be in Europe, very good staff that were personable but not intrusive. A great experience, I'll be back.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.

Always wanted to try this restaurant...Loved it! Friendly and prompt service. Food was great!

What an excellent dinning
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 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 a star!
Chez Vincent is a star in the realm of restaurants. Our food was outstanding. This was for a special occasion & was made very even more so by our server Elissa.

Dinner with Friends
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.

The food and service was excellent. Our waitress had the entire menu memorized, which is not very common. For the kind of food you get it is relatively inexpensive, also.

Wonderful Orlando fine dining
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 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.
