    Quite a trek if you are staying in Riverfront/French Quarter but the trip is worth it. You pass many beautiful homes on your trip so always something pleasant to observe. We were seated immediately and wait staff were attentive and accommodating . Food was delicious and wine list was fine. Only drawback for me was the crowding of the tables. Seemed they were trying to put 40 tables into a 25 table spot. No one seemed to mind with all the great food coming to the table.

    Both artichoke apps are delicious. Our party loved the veal, crabmeat salad, fish, corn bisque. Caesar is so so. The ice cream is delicious. The only negative (besides the parking ticket) was that the spaghetti in the bordelaise was over-cooked. I wish Vincent's would step up and be the first to offer whole wheat pasta.

    Nice busy restaurant in New Orleans. Being from Chicago I may have become spoiled when it comes to good Italian food, but I was not at all impressed or happy with the food we had here. We had the veal parmisan & the Lasagna. Both deserved Poor ratings! Although large helpings, Veal was mushy and overly covered with over cooked (almost burned) gravy (or sauce for you non Italians) & Lasagna itself was prepared well with ingredients besides just the usual ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and almost had a chance but again had burned gravy which destroyed it. My wife and I would not recommend or return here based on the food we had. Its a very popular restaurant so maybe just a bad cooking night. This is our opinion based on food we had.

    Walking into Vincent's is like walking out of NOLA and into NYC. Tony is such a sweetie and wants to take care of everyone. The food here is wonderful. The best veal dishes I have ever had. It is a nice break from Cajun cuisine. The price is very reasonable for the meal and my son luved the cannola that we got to go. It is walking distance from Tulane and right on the Street Car Line. I look forward to many more visits there as I plan to visit my son often over the next 5 years.

    This neighborhood favorite is a wonderful experience both in dining, ambiance, cocktails and wine list. I had been to the Metairie location and thoroughly enjoyed it many years ago. This uptown location is similar and you won't be disappointed. I was concerned about the size of the portions as it seems that Italian restaurants always give you way too much food. Therefore, I ordered an appetizer and a salad only and had trouble eating all of that as well. I think I had the best Caesar salad at this place EVER and didn't shy away from the anchovies. I got a signature eggplant appetizer and it was a perfect meal.

    The food was good and they accepted a special request by one of our party to get a red sauce on something that traditionally had a creamy sauce. The front room is more happening and lively, but we sat in the back room which is quieter and more suited to conversation. The staff was helpful and engaging.

    This is what I would call a neighborhood gem. A place that you can go to in casual clothes or dressed for the theatre. The food is at the level of white linen restaurants with the kind of professional yet unobtrusive service that makes it all come together. And the background music is not too loud and is the kind of music that I like and enjoy. The menu is fantastic and the food tasty and full of flavor. Two great appetizers are the Eggplant Amalfi and the Corn and Crabmeat Bisque which is served in a delicious toasted bread cup.

    My husband and I love to dine at Vincent's. We brought our 8 and 4 year old grandsons here for the first time. The Parmesan crusted shrimp appetizer was "the best shrimp appetizer I've ever had in my life" said the 8 year old. He is correct. The 4 year old loved his spaghetti and meatball! He couldn't eat it all, but insisted on bringing it home for 'tomorrow'. They both thought the bread sticks were the BOMB. My go to favorite is the crab cake and my husband enjoyed the veal and seafood ( they substituted the eggplant for veal). Our wine went perfectly with the courses. Of course we finished with a cannoli and practically liked the plate.

    The food here is good, the service was well timed & they have a good wine list. I did not think the food was too garlicy as one reviewer thought. This is in a neighborhood about 20 minutes drive away from the French Quarter. Although the reviews on this restaurant are high I don't know if its worth leaving the French Quarter if you are a tourist. It was really loud and cramped and there is no parking lot so you have to find a space on the street. But if you are wanting well cooked Italian at reasonable prices and are willing to drive you should not be disappointed.

    This is a meal you shall not soon forget. The corn crab chowder in a bread bowl is a must. I asked for a special order that they pound a veal chop into veal parm for me and they could not have been more accommodating. It is a very tight place and elbow room is at a premium but once you start eating, you will soon forget about space issues.

    First dined at Vincent's in 1997 (Metairie) and I was hooked! I've been back there several times in the several years, but, now, we only go to the St. Charles facility. The food is outstanding at either location---Vincent, himself, is in Metairie, and visits each table to see if patron is satisfied. At St. Charles, his co-owner, Tony Imbraguglio, greets at the door and remembers regular diners well. The food is outstanding.... I'm a foodie, and love the good stuff, and have NEVER been disappointed. We have a favorite waiter, named.. Daego (sp.?).. Pronounced DAHGO. He's terrific, with great recommendations on any specials, and recommended wines. It's small, noisy, and cramped but that can be good! My wife and I drive 55 miles to dine!
