    All the best treasure requires a good old hunt. Vince Carter’s Restaurant is truly a diamond in the rough. I consider myself to be pretty well travelled however upon visiting Vince Carter’s I was blown away. Mr. Carter happen to be present during my visit and I must say his humbleness really sets the ambiance there. The food and the service were top quality and I would go back in a heartbeat. (And I plan on it) To all my food connoisseurs - Be adventurous and spend the money. You will enjoy it!!!!!

    The building is impressive, and the atmosphere inside is good, but the food was average at best. We felt like the menu and food didn't match the atmosphere, the prices didn't match the food quality, and we left feeling a little disappointed.

    We have always adored the food at Vince Carter's, but this visit was the best! With the different specials that they run, we are hoping that the Chimchurri Mahi stays on the menu!!! All 4 of us ending up ordering the same & we all loved it :) We always look forward to what surprises they will have next

    This was our first experience there and it was excellent. The greeting as you walk in was top of the line and overall appearance of restaurant was one of the best we have experienced in the area,and for that matter anywhere else. The service was great as was the food. The waitress was very attentive through the entire meal and it was a very relaxed atmosphere.

    Certainly not to be missed. Wonderful ambience and atmosphere and great service. My wife's lunch entree was superb, though I had one of the lunch specials, a steak taco, that was tasty but didn't have any steak...honestly, had to be less than an ounce of steak in each of the 3 tacos...a real rip off. But overall, would definitely go back...just be more careful on what I order.

    The house Merlot was such a disappointment. Our Brie appetizer and Steak were superb. The guests across the room were so loud we had difficulty conversing across our own table: this was on a Monday evening with a sparsely filled dining room. I wish the attentive server had suggested another spot as the noise became louder. We reserved online and the hostess only had part of the reservation notes. As we were leaving she said she finally was able to see our entire reservation request. The request was simply asking for a quiet romantic spot with a view... However it is definitely worth repeating.

    From the time we walked in the door to the time we left the feel good friendly sincere smiling faces and attention was beyond compare. Then the food, wow, so many choices and all that we chose came out looking good, tasting good, and well done. The time between servings was fine. However, a loud birthday celebration (three times in 5 minutes, was loud and distracting enough to be disturbing. All other facets of this beautiful restaurant was, I will be back.

    I was expecting far better food and service for the prices charged. Porterhouse Steak was good but not great. Steak is usually based on quality of meat, and for a restaurant in this price range, I would expect better quality meat. I was really disappointed with the Carolina Shrimp and Grits. The grits were two "patties" and I had to mix them with the overpowering sauce. The grits were gummy and lumpy. The shrimp were very small and grainy. Several of the $4 desserts were "sold out". This was 7pm on a Saturday! Waiter was friendly but not knowledgable.

    We have always enjoyed eating at Vince Carter's whether its in the dining room, the piano bar, or the sports bar. The food is always excellent. The drinks are reasonably priced. The service is very good. Although we live 30 miles away we find this to be a great place to entertain visiting family and friends.

    Advanced reservations were made on open table and we were disappointed to find out that our group was seated in the sport bar area rather than the main dinning area. The manager said that this was because we made the reservations through open table. I would have been nice to know that this was going to occurred since this was a special night for 14 of us. it all turned out okay, but this should have been explained when we made the reservations.

    We went for mothers day. The food was excellent, but the service was not so great. He was quick and got the order correct, but he showed no emotion or interest in us in any way. He never smiled and barely spoke to us, but then we would see him with other coworkers and was laughing and having the time of his life! I will definitely return to Vince Carters for the food, but we will make sure we never have that server again.

    I was happy to get a reservation for Mother's Day at Vince Carter's. it's hard to get my family all together with everyone's work schedules. I was a little disappointed to see when we arrived that you were only serving a few select items and not your regular menu. My mom and I ordered the avocado and tomato caprice salad and had stale pita bread toast points. Our server Dylan, was very attentive and accommodating. He quickly brought out a different kind of toast points that were much better. We all had a great night. Thank you Vince Carter's you will be seeing us again soon.

    Hostess was awful. Attitude. Arrived on time and no one at hostess stand. Five minutes later she arrived with her 32 ounce soft drink in hand. No apology for us waiting. Our waiter Mat was a nice young man. Knew nothing about wine , no cocktail napkins under drinks, no serving plates under my shrimp cocktail for shells, no steak knife with my steak. He has potential but needs training. Chef- excellent. Food presentation - excellent. Price-value is very good. Fire the hostess and better train the staff. It's not rocket science.

    My wife and I were celebrating 19 years together and we wanted a restaurant that was quiet enough to talk, yet a restaurant that was busy. We had never been to Vince Carter's, and we took a chance and went. We were both grateful that we did! The food was prepared in a timely manner, with a great appearance and an even better taste! The bread, the salad, the main course, all of it was delicious. I highly recommend anyone to visit and enjoy Vince Carter's in Daytona Beach if you are looking for a nice, romantic setting, or if you're looking for a place to have a fun time with a group of people.
