    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.

    Our fourth and final visit. With the first because it was new - terrible, the next visit about a year later with the thought the newness is out, they are settled in - wrong- service and food not good.- Third time, not my choice, business meeting and entire party of 6 not good, only the drinks and service were great - and finally one more try for Mother-In-Law birthday and early mothers day- Such a disappointment - Service is Out-Standing truly has come together - the location and facility are beautiful - we just wish the FOOD was good. I have not done burgers in the sports bar maybe that is the mistake - but between the 4 visits we have pretty much sampled through our own and our guests a good portion of the menu to no avail-food not good

    Dined on 4/22/2014
    Starting at my entranced to the restaurant, there was nobody at the main desk. I had to try to find someone to helped us. The place was so empty that we felt uncomfortable. I was expecting more people. Our server kept getting lost between the kitchen and our table. My filet mignon was tasteless. I was expecting better for the price. Longhorn Flo has more flavor. The wine list was overpriced to the maximum. A wine that I buy for $20 at Total Wine it was priced three times more. Overall you go to the restaurant to pay for Vince Carter's name not for the food.

    A special lunch for an 89th birthday party was made beautiful by the staff at VC's. From reservations to seating to the finale birthday cake everything was made easy. The food was MAGNIFICENT. Everyone raved about their selections. The price was a pleasant surprise as SIX of us had HUGE lunch meals and beverages for a total tab of $90 including taxes. The waitress seemed to have too many tables as she "forgot" to return with requests. Also the $10 fee to cut and serve the cake seems exorbitant. We chose to cut it ourselves instead.

    Vince Carter's restaurant was a mixed dining experience. The food, specifically the Sea Bass and Salmon were fantastic. Service was very slow and pace was dismal. It was virtually impossible to get a refill on water. I would return for the quality of food, and hopefully service will be at par for the prices and ambiance.

    They couldn't find our reservation, and acted like it was a disruption to seat us...even though the place was pretty empty. The food was just ok for being so highly priced. The wedge salad was good, but it was downhill from there. The crab cakes were fishy and the ribeye was fatty and flavorless. We wouldn't go back or recommend it to anyone.

    I made reservations through Open Table taking my parents here for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Made a special note to the restaurant that we were coming here for this very special occassion and if they could do anything special for them, please do so. Nothing was said or done. Very disappointed. Parents liked their meals but mine was not worth the $25 price tag. I had what was supposed to be sea scallops but turned out to be 5 itty bitty scallops one of which was cooked way too much on the bottom. I will say the cheese ravioli was really good and a lot of them. Would have been happier with more scallops and less ravioli. This wass our first time dining there and probably will not be going back....

    Of all the places to pick from on valentines day we decided to return to Vince Carter's. Little did we know that we would be forced to pick our entire meal from a set menu. Nothing we were used to ordering was even on there. We had to settle for an entree we didn't even want. If it wasn't for the reservation we already had we would have left and gone someplace else. the bread wasn't even bread...it was cornbread! Who eats cornbread by itself with a drink. Then the entrees offered didn't sound that great let alone the portions when they arrived to the table. My entree was served-kid you not-on the same size plate I got my salad in. Really!! We were so disappointed with everything at that point. Not a way to spend your romantic v-day dinner!

    Made reservations for 9pm and still had a 30 min wait. When we finally got to the table was very upset because there was a set menu which didn't have that many choices. The server told us that it was for faster service but this theory proved to be wrong. People that were seated after us got their food before us. When we finally got served bread and our salads the food quality wasn't good. Very disappointed!

    This was the second year 4 of us went to Vince Carter's on Valentines Day. Last year it was hectic, overcrowded, and not so great. This time they'd worked out all the kinks! We were greeted at the door by a young man who handed each woman a carnation. Nice touch. We had a very short wait, then seated. Roger, our wait-person was great as we're the food and wine. Steak done perfectly, lobster tortellini excellent! Looks like we'll be back next year!

    Had a reservation but when we got there were told they were not taking reservations, had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. The menu was limited for that night and was not told that when making the reservation. I have been there before but the food was poor that night and the prices were high. The place is run poorly from a reservation point of view.

    Everything was good except they didn't have a couple of things we wanted off the menu. Plus the waiter did something I never seen done before. This man got our tab and didn't bring my change back as if he just assume he was getting a 25 dollar tip. It was not the 18% of our bill that I was going to give him. I mean the food was prepared well but it wasn't worth the buck in my opinion.

    It was my husband's birthday and I specifically put on the reservation that it was his birthday, however, his day was not even acknowledged until I told our waitress after our dinner was paid for. I was a little disappointed, but our waitress tried to make it up by giving him a dessert of his choosing which he liked (bread pudding). Other than that, our dining experience was great and the food was delicious.
