    The food is delicious; thoughtfully and generously prepared. The space is beautifully casual. The service is warm, earnest and relaxed. It was our first time at Vintage 1891 Kitchen, and we have already booked a reservation to return. Everything comes together.

    Need to step up service and food. Great atmosphere but they need to serve better food and train their staff. Had to ask for bread basket and then for a steak knife to eat my pork chop which was tough so the knife was really needed.

    I think the decor and space is spectacular. The food is most enjoyable (although they need to make mention of creamy sauces--for those watching calories or have dietary restrictions). Disappointed the pureed asparagus soup had a touch of cream, since the other soup was cream based (watching those calories/lactose issues again). The service is friendly and helpful. The wine list is amazing; however, need to train the staff not to serve wine 10 degrees too cold and then offer an ice bucket with ice and water. I really do love this restaurant and want it to succeed; maybe some marketing. No one seems to know about it. It was quiet both times I went, which is too bad. I hope people start going.

    We like the food and would go more regularly if they improved service and we know owe are not alone in this view. It is sporadic and doesn't inspire confidence and they don't get the impression the servers know anything about wine. That said they are nice and friendly - just not trained.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and chose this Resto from trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The service was great, very attentive, a free glass of wine each was offered when the mains were delayed slightly. The food was delicious and full of flavour and the wine too. The dessert - crème brûle - was the only little disappointment, not quite right. Would highly recommend.

    We had a delightful dinner. Each of us chose something different and all loved what they chose. One of us had the short ribs which looked beautiful and tasted wonderful. The 2 other people in our party each had fish; salmon for one, branzino for the other. The fish was cooked to perfection.We ordered an apple spring roll for desert, which sounded intriguing. We all shared it; liked the taste but found the spring roll itself disappointing; too thick and not at all delicate and crisp. We all agreed that we wouldreturn again.

    The restaurant is interesting and the food is excellent. The Food items are limited but what is listed is quite good. I think they Cornish Hen is one of the finest chicken dishes I have had in a restaurant - moist and very tasty. There is a considerable variety of wines as well. The chairs are also special, and the entire experience was very pleasant.

    This was our first time at Madison Kitchen since it expanded the wine bar to include a restaurant. The ambience is relaxed and the lighting just right. The menu has variety. My husband and I were really happy with our dinner choices - The Branzini with Israeli Couscous was fantastic. Everything we ordered was delicious and well presented. The wine list is also extensive and the prices are very reasonable. The service was attentive, and professional. Overall, nice addition to the Larchmont restaurant scene.

    The restaurant was lovely and the food outstanding. It was a quiet night and the service was very good. We were surprised at how quiet it was but I would assume that was due to it being a Monday night in August. I would highly recommend the restaurant.

    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.

    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.

    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.
