It was a last minute stand
It was a last minute stand in find! (thank you Open Table!) when another original choice was closed for renovations. Co-workers and boss in tow- but everyone was happy- good wine and good food. The only item disappointing was the crab cake in the appetizers because it was too much dark meat and fishy instead of the light white crab chunk meat style at many shore communities (this was not at the shore, so it may have been a preference) -- but one co-worker is a chef and she was pleased with her filet mignon and poivre sauce -- so a very good mark!

In a location that has been
In a location that has been a literally revolving door for many restaurants, Vintage Grill seems to have made its stake (and steak) in this well-travelled spot. The decor is warm and inviting - it is both femine and masculine. There is a room by the bar where the scene is vibrant and energetic. The room to the side is elegant and refined. And there is a well hidden spot by the kitchen that provides a more intimate setting.
The menu items from the appetizers to the main course were excellent!!! This is a serious contender and should be on everyone's list of places to go without making a trip into the city.

The steaks are still as special
The steaks are still as special as in the old place (Fulton and Prime), but I love the new dishes on the menu when i don't want beef. Busy and a little noisy on Friday night, but the food and service are always excellent.

Lovely decor, good food, attentive
Lovely decor, good food, attentive staff, but both too loud and too expensive (in general, but also in relation to portion size). Vegetables should come with the entrees (and would make a better presentation, no doubt, in addition). The wine was odd or off (pinot noir that did not seem like one). Friendly waiter spoke too quickly and so was hard to be heard in noisy small venue. Given the typical age of those in the rooms (I looked), quieting down the restaurant should be a priority and also healthy and included sides (vegetables or salads).

Well done. The music started
Well done. The music started a bit too loud for my taste but when the room filled up I didn't notice it. Great service, lively crowd. Short ribs looked good and our fish was excellent. We'll go back. Hopefully, Vintage can make a go of at this location.

Very good steakhouse with some nice non-steak entrees to choose from. The staff is very accomodating. Wine list prices are reasonable. Will defintiely go back. I believe they recently opened and in time will be develop to a five star restaurant like their St. James location.

When we checked in and were
When we checked in and were told that our table was being cleared and we would be seated in about 10 minutes. We walked into the bar (which also has a dining area) and the noise was unbearable. Upon hearing the volume of we checked to make sure our table was not in the bar area. We were seated shortly and the dining area was quiet.
The food was excellent from appetizers (shrimp cocktail and Tuna Tartar) to dinner (scallops and rib steak) and dessert (apple cobbler and coffees) and the service was equally good.
Great place, great food but noise is a big issue.

New Vintage revives an old location
Really good, steaks and sushi excellewnt, and keeps getting better!
Attentive service, owner is hands on and makes an effort to speak to and listen to the clientele.
Quality of food and presentation is at the forefront.
Can get loud, especially in the bar area, and when the dining room has a number of 6-tops occupied.
Will def. go back!

Food was delicious. Service
Food was delicious. Service was good but rushed. Immediately upon sitting down, the waiter came over to take our drink order. We hadn't had a moment to look at the drink or wine menu. We asked him for a moment and he hovered until we were ready. After bringing us or drinks he immediately told us the specials and then wanted to take our dinner orders. Again, we had not even looked at our menus. We told him to give us some time and again he hovered until we were ready. Now the meal itself was not rushed and nicely paced. Also the noise level was extremely high. It is very expensive. We each had 2 drinks, the two women each had 2 appetizers and the men each had an appetizer and an entree. 1 dessert. 2 cappuccionos. $163 per couple w/tip.

Should get more for your money
Vie went for resturant week, I feel it was silly to make you pay 3 dollars extra for a tiny piece of choclate cake and other things on the price fix menu. The whole point is to pay one price right? Portions were small too. Music was loud , we were in a private room and we were the only ones in the resturant initially. Once the room filled up it got really loud. Food was delicious and the staff was attentive and charming. Overall nice experience but pricey main menu and loud.

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had an amazing meal that included seafood and steak. Highly recommend the seafood bisque, angry spaghetti, shrimp scampi and any cut of steak. The truffle fries were to die for. The ambiance was warm and inviting and the decor simple and sophisticated. Highly recommend!

A great hot spot
For some reason there is restaurant turnover in this location. Vintage is a gem it's here to stay. Everything from the service to the food was top notch Saturday night. I'm already planning my next visit. The tuna appetizer was delicious as well as the salmon entree . I highly reccomend Vintage.

Wonderful ambiance with a warm old world flair.An incredible menu that has great variety so everyone in the family or among friends can dine on what they are in the mood for.The staff is professional and the food is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! We first discovered this place 2 weeks ago and have been there 4 times.

Nice, local and quiet. Highly recommended to those in the Syosset/Jericho area for good food. No where else in the area serves as great of food with some great drinks

Delicious aged steaks and more
My favorite place for steaks. They are consistently delicious and tender. Their Thai Calamari are another favorite. There are several dining rooms, so you can eat in the barroom or the quieter main dining room, as you prefer. A private room is also available for small groups.

Food and service was v ery good. Very quiet for a Wednesday night in the summer which surprised us...but it was a gift because we could talk to one another during dinner...the restaurant has a tendancy to get very loud, especially at prime time hours.

Lovely decor but everything
Lovely decor but everything was so inconsistent. Noise level was very high when the room was full but quiet when not full! Food came out quite quickly but not described very well in the menu. Did not specify fried or grilled chicken... Just chicken! Our fault for not asking... But was replaced quite rapidly. Thanks for following thought with the anniversary acknowledgement with sparklers and one piece of cake for the four of us... Yes, it was all our anniversaries!

Excellent dining experience.
We had a delicious dinner that was beautifully presented in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Our dinner choices were made from a summer Prix fixe menu that was a great idea with lots of options and reasonable prices. We have enjoyed dinner at Vintage innumerable times, and have never been disappointed. Typically, the measure of a quality restaurant includes excellent food, nicely presented, a warm and inviting environment, and consistency. Vintage scores an "A" on all counts.

Not a cheapie, but worth it
Vintage is the latest of a line of restaurants that have occupied this space, and it may be the best of them, at least so far. The others all started out beautifully, with excellent chefs, but lost their chefs, or focus, or both, and ultimately failed. We were four people, and we were all very happy with the setting, service, and food. I had duck tacos to start, while the others had salads. We then shared two orders of excellent quality steak, done just as we asked, with coated (panko?) fries. The owner of a major, classic Huntington restaurant was with a group two tables away. We exchanged greetings and they were apparently also happy with their evening. I recommend Vintage as a destination restaurant.

As good as last time
Four of us in the room to the left of the entrance (the barroom is on the right), the "quieter" one, although on a Friday night it got louder and louder as people filled the tables. Not to complain, though. The food was as good as ever. Two of us shared a small portion of "angry spaghetti"as an appetizer. Main dishes; scallops for me, huge and barely done shrimps for my wife (that's a compliment---for the shrimp). The wine list is reasonably priced------ there are wines in the mid twenties. Service is personable and efficient, and the experience as a whole makes you happy to return.

Food was great. We were seated very close to our reservation time. Service was exceptional! I'd go back anytime and I'd recommend to a friend. Duck tacos were very good!

Always a great experience!
Michael Cacaro is the consummate chef and host. We have been to Vintage for dinner several times and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious, beautifully presented, and professionally served. Vintage is highly recommended for a great steak, a piece of fish, and for all around good feelings.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I keep going back to Vintage. Great food, great service and really nice ambiance. It's consistently an excellent restaurant. I have recommended Vintage to several of my friends and they love it too. Enjoy!!!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been to Vintage Bar and Grill on several occasions and always enjoyed. The ravioli, duck tacos, zucchini pasta, all very good. We did go for restaurant week, and my friend who frequents dining out is now a fan, and looking forward to her next visit. The chef is extremely accommodating and went out of his way to provide a special meal for friends who are vegans on our last visit. Love the décor of the dining room. The chocolate flourless cake was one of the best I have ever had.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to the restaurant on a Sunday night. The service was excellent, the food was great, and the atmosphere was very soothing and romantic.

This was just as good as I had expected. Service was very attentive without being overbearing. I would recommend this place to friends.

You would not know it from the outside and might drive right past it but this restaurant has it all....great food, great service, and the duality of a more fancy dining experience on one side and the coziness of a pub on the other....nice bar area also...
