    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/30/2010
    Was very disapointed in Chef Vincents. we made reservations for 8pm, and did not get seated until 8-45. The food was not as exeptional as had been written in several logs. Was disapointed in the pate, not good. The meat was good on our entrees, but due to the time that we finally received our dinners we found the vegtables to be old, and dried up. My husband had taken a special for $42 which was to be accompanied by a glass of wine, at no time did the waiter offer the glass of wine, or take it off the price of the dinner. The apple pie was the least to say was anything but good, the apples had all gone black as was deffinately not a french apple tart. Would I go back to the restaurant absoulutely not.

    The creamy carrot soup was delicious - my wife was OK with the rustic lumps but I would have preferred a more silky texture; pork tenderloin and venison were cooked perfectly but the sauce on the venison tasted more like canned beef gravy than the cherry influenced sauce described in the menu; my vegetables were cold and dry, my wife's were OK. The wine was excellent. Service was lacking - they appeared to be understaffed. No reason to return.

    Chez Vincent has a lot of potential and I strongly desire to go back and try it again. The night that my wife and I were there was obviously (and addmitedly by the service staff) an off night. Chez Vincent was actually closed for rennovations, so we were sat in Hannibal's on the Square and given the Chez Vincent menu. Hannibals had recently hosted a wedding was not cleaned or propertly reset. We were attended to by 3 servers. A man who seemed curt and disinterested, and left us sitting at our table for quote somet ime after seating us, and a French gentleman and a young lady who were quite pleasent. The food was mediocre, albeit presented nicely and very appealing on the menu. Everyone is entitled to an off night; try it anyway!

    We dined from the Magical Dining Menu. We ate pate and snails, pate was a little dry, and not used to being served pate with mustard and a gherkin, sauce with snails was excellent. Beef crepe was absolutely delicious as was the pork which just melted in the mouth. We followed with chocolate crepe and creme brulee, both superb. We drank Evian water and a bottle of Fleurie. We had a very attentive and charming waiter who originated from France and had spent time training in the South-East of England about 35 miles from where we live. The chef came round the tables at the end of the evening. We had not explored that particular part of Orlando before and found it quite lovely, and plan to return both the Chez Vincent and to explore the area.

    Our reservation was noted by the maitre de and we were seated immediately. The waiter was having a less than stellar night, but it was obvious he was professional. Given the extensive wine list, it would have been nice if the waiter had offered some guidance. The food was delicious and an appropriate portion (not ridiculously huge or minescule). We left satisfied and with plans to try this restaurant again. We tried the restaurant because it was participating in Orlando's Magical Dining Month. The pate, beef crepe and chocolate- raspberry mousse were excellent. The creme brûlée had a bit too much sugar glazed in top- made it hard to access the delicious creaminess below.

    Dined on 9/8/2010
    We're not sure which one of the three men who attended to us was our server, so getting drinks and getting a cold glass of wine wasn't the easiest thing to do. When we called one of the men over to tell him the wine wasn't chilled, he said he already knew that. So why was it served? I dined from the Magical Dining Month menu; the French onion soup was excellent, the beef in the beef crepes was overdone and stringy, and the creme bruleé wasn't the best I've had. My companion had a house salad (I asked for a house salad, but the server said, "I have a salad with goat cheese," and then he brought my companion a house salad), the salmon, and the duck, which were "passable." We would not go back. We'll drive further from home next time.

    We had an excellent dining experience. The ambience was excellent, as was the service. We had an appetizer of escargot, which was done perfectly, without a hint of toughness, and with just the right amount of garlic. Then we had French onion soup, which was also excellent, one of the best French onion soups I've had in a while. We both had porc ala moutarde, and this also was very good, the pork cooked perfectly, very tender, in an excellent brown mustard sauce. The vegetables, especially the cabbage, were very, very good, though it would have been nice to have a trifle more. For dessert, we had a very good creme brule. There can be no doubt we will be back.

    It appears that Chez Vincent's isn't putting their best foot forward with the Magical Dining programs. We have dined here in the past and had better meals when we did not have a special price offer. The crepe wrapped tenderloin had pieces of tenderloin that were cut too large to be contained properly within the crepe, the pate was bland and the french onion soup too salty. Our server was very nice and attentive and our desserts were good including the creme brulee.

    Chef Vincent takes a break from the kitchen to visit every table emphasizing the family owned quality in every bite. The food is superb, but this is definitely a special occasion kind of place. As a wellness coach, I could tell from the first bite that the fat and sodium content of the food is more than I would normally tolerate, but the quality ingredients make you forget that for this one meal. Enjoy!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/7/2010
    The best part about our meal was the food, and I guess that's the way it should be. My corvina special was cooked to near perfection, as was my wife's duck. There are some reasonable wines by the glass, which works for us since we have different tastes. The meal was not without issue, though. The dining is in need of some sprucing up.....actually, more like a complete overhaul. You can tell it hasn't been updated in decades, as it is really showing its wear. While quiet in and of itself, some noise spills over from the neighboring bar, Hannibal's.....not a problem for us, but others should be prepared for it. Our server left a little to be desired, as he wasn't the most attentive, but the other two servers helped out. Good overall.

    Had lived here for years but somehow missed this great little french spot in Winter Park. Easily some of the best food you will have in Orlando. We had the calamari appetizer which was amazing as it was very fresh and served with a red pepper seasoning. For our entrees we had the filet mignon and my wife ordered the scallops. Both were cooked to perfection with each plate accompanied by a small side of vegetable and potato. I should warn you if your looking to have that "full" feeling you get from every other place here in town, you might want to double up on the french bread as the portions are normal sized, which is the way it should be. Even with a minor cork incident where the waiter broke the cork into the bottle we brought, A-

    The restaurant's decor is very nice. Service was ok. When our main course arrived, we noticed that the vegetables looked as if they had been sitting out under a heating lamp for quite a while. They looked wrinkled and a bit shriveled. We were wondering if the chef cooked it for lunch and we just got the leftovers for our dinner. The quality of our main couse (I had the orange glazed duck dish, my friend had scallops) was simply mediocre. Especially considering the premium prices they were charging. The deserts were just ok. I can't say the food was bad, per se, simply not in keeping with the price. I don't care what dinner out costs, cheap or expensive, as long as it's good. This was just not what we were expecting.
