  • "Pretty restaurant with very good, reliable food. We've eaten there several times now and have enjoyed every experience."

  • "Great place for dinner, friends, or a larger group. I came here on a romantic dinner with my wife and tried something from each course. All very tasty. After dinner we asked for a tour and were taken around by the manager and one on the servers. Very customer friendly. Overall good time."

  • "This was my first visit to the restaurant. I was glad to find a new restaurant in the neighborhood. It is an attractive and inviting place. However, for a Thursday night only 5 tables were occupied. It took at least 10-15 minutes until a waiter came over to ask for our drink order and our water glasses had not yet been filled. The food was good, and nicely plated. The goat cheese salad was ordinary but, the duck breast had a savory crust and was perfectly cooked as were the vegetables that accompanied it. With the place so empty, I expected more attentive service."

  • "Haven't been back since it opened and it has changed quite a bit. No longer a place for a drink (or two) and snack, Vintage now serves full meals. The small plates were varied and on the whole delicious. The salmon entrée was also good but not as unique an offering as the small plate menu. Service was very good. I would definitely go back. "

  • "We were lucky to get a last-minute Saturday night reservation -- it was quieter than usual due to the Memorial Day weekend. We had been inside 1891 before and knew it was beautiful but this was our first dining experience. We were intrigued by the menu that included some of our favorites -- duck, scallops, halibut, branzino and lamb. Their wine list was dazzling! We ended up having a wonderful foodie evening. Kudos to the chef for the thoughtful/interesting preparation and blending of flavors that added up to a special meal. The portions were of a good size and the décor gorgeous, but still very comfortable. Service was generally good, with a few lapses. We have now added 1891 to our list of favorite restaurants in the area."

  • "Mediocre food, awful service, so loud you can't hear yourself speak (btw, it wasn't especially packed, just terrible acoustics). With so many decent places in larchmont (polpettina, plates, Chat to name a few), no sure why anyone would come here a second time. Too bad, I had high hopes."

  • "The last time we were here (seven or eight months ago), we enjoyed the food, but pacing was totally off. It took a lot for me to give 1891 another shot, and boy, I'm glad we did. Tonight's experience was excellent. Our meals were super, the waitstaff was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, and the pacing issue was totally corrected. Everything came our like clockwork and we had a terrific evening. The tuna appetizer was delicious, and the mac n' cheese was outrageous. We enjoyed two fish dishes -- the salmon and branzino -- both of which were full of flavor and cooked perfectly. I had the duck which was yummy, although the scallops I tried on our last visit were more special. Deserts were good too, especially the apple spring role. "

  • "Arrived slightly early for 645 reservation and we were seated promptly. First impression of the decor was very good. Cool colors, lots of candles, fire feature. Staff was polite and knowledgeable. Didn't rush us. Had great salads and entrees. Two big cups of French pressed coffee and a delicious apple spring roll dessert. Definitely will return. "

  • "I don't know where to start. We were unable to resist the Mac n Cheese in Truffle oil again. The salads and soup were delicious. The staff accommodated my daughters vegetarian diet and all her veggies were flavorful. I had the Pappardelle with veal ragu the portion was more than I could finish so they boxed it up for me. They even fulfilled my request so to where I wished to sit. All in all once again Vintage 1891 was a pleasurable dining experience."

    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We love the vibe here which is cool but not so that we feel intimidated. Lovely modernized take on fireplace and candles, comfortable seating, good food choices. This time by striped sea bass came smelling very fishy and tasted that way as well. Not sure if it was a different kind of striped sea bass or just not as fresh as usual. The butternut squash puree was great, as was my husband's salmon."

  • "Overall a bad experience - don't waste your time here. Staff is not well educated on menu. Courses take forever to come out and are not timed properly. There is no communication between kitchen, waiters and management. Have to ask for things multiple times before they arrive. Couple next to us said their entree took 2 hrs and restaurant was not even crowded. Food doesn't impress. Grilled vegetable horrible-few veggies and ice cold. Asian salad wilted and sad - left most of it behind. My husband's steak was good but at least 50% fat. Overall a miss on all counts."

  • "Vintage Kitchen has a beautiful ambiance. The decor, the vibe, the people are wonderful. I felt like I was dining in luxury but yet the food is affordable. The menu is outstanding as well. Chef Jesus Canela put a well together Menu that can accommodate all palettes. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I personally took my mother and siblings and we had a great time. My sister was indecisive of what wine to endure and the staff nicely accommodated her by providing a wine tasting. The small plates are so delicious that you would want to try all of them. I will definitely return despite what others might comment."

  • "I would have given this restaurant a 4 on the noise list but that was" I don't recall". Now i understand why the other viewers voted that way. The noise was so loud that it ruined my dinner. The food is very good, the wine list is extensive but after a week of working you just want to get together with friends and catch up on things and wind down and this is not the place to go. I felt like I couldn't even think to myself it was just too loud. There was an enormous time lapse between the apps and the entrees. I have to admit that the food and ambiance were great. I will not go back because it was just too loud."

  • "Excellent food if somewhat limited menu, great wine list, and a beautiful, open setting with clever local décor. Like eating in a friend's living room. Only frustration is seemingly frequent closings for private parties."

  • "We and our friends both had very good meals here last Saturday evening. The restaurant was not full, but the attentive initial service was disconnected from something behind the scenes. We ordered appetizers when we first sat down, but none arrived until close to an hour later. And when our mains arrived (yet another 30 or 40 minutes after our appetizers finally made it), my lamb chops were lukewarm. The three other dishes -- all fish -- were fine. The food flavors were very good, and we liked the atmosphere. And we appreciated the manager attempting to make up for the misses. Because the food was quite good, we'll probably give it a 2nd try and hope for the best."

  • "Had a great evening with friends! The beet salad and lamb chops were everyone's favorite. With friendly and efficient service, you felt completely at home. Will definitely return to this swanky spot!"

  • "As we stepped into the restaurant, we were taken aback by the decor and ambiance. The restaurant / lounge, has the feel of a chic Manhattan establishment. The food was outstanding as was the wait staff. With an extensive wine list and a beautiful bar, this restaurant makes it one of the best restaurants in Larchmont and the surrounding area that we have been to."

  • "We loved the décor and the atmosphere!! The staff was friendly and informative.The food was so delicious that we asked if we could meet the Chef! I had the oxtail and it was served stuffed in a pepper and it was amazing. Better yet was the lamb chops my husband had, best we've ever tasted! Thank you Vintage! We are happy to make you a regular spot!"

  • "I really love this spot! It is like a spacious, warm-feeling bar with nice décor and awesome food. While there, I did not feel rushed at all and I found it to be very relaxing and just loved hanging out! My dinner was superb, and after trying bites of just about everyone at the table - their dishes were equally divine! I love that you have the option to eat at a table or eat on a couch! It feels so cozy and familiar from the time you walk in...if you just want to chill in a place with a cool vibe and have good food, this is the place for you! I loved it and it has already become part of my regular rotation!"

  • "the decor was wonderful, the food excellent, but the service was terrible - especially on a night when the restaurant was not crowded - this became a 3 1/2 hour meal because of the delays in the kitchen - got the feeling that all they wanted us to keep doing was buy more drinks to pass the time until the food came."

  • "Vintage has been a very good wine bar in town for a while. They recently expanded their kitchen and are better able to provide top notch full menu dining. We had a party of 6. The appetizers were outstanding, expecially the tuna tatare and the sliders. I had the best cod I have had in years (don't see it that much). Great fish and meat menu. Not extensive; but covers all the bases. Great bar with extensive assortment of top shelf liquor and wines. We live in town and thought of it at the last minute. Glad we did. Was really great. Not cheap (they do add 20% to parties over 6, which is fair), but we likely overdid it with the non-food items."
