Vintage Bar & Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners

    This is a great place for brunch. The food is your basic brunch fare, good food but nothing special. The mimosa deal is fantastic. Only $8 for unlimited mimosas! And they keep 'em comin. I never saw the bottom of my glass. Many brunch spots are kinda uptight about reservations, time limits, etc. This place is casual, easy to get a table, and didn't kick us out just because we finished our food. Would definitely recommend it!

    Literally $20 unltd. mimosas and amazing brunch food. What a great neighborhood gem....I shouldn't even be writing this review but I would die if this place went out of business. Went with a friend on a Saturday around 2pm... made a res but nobody was in the place. Waiter was super funny and generous when refilling our glasses (and there is no time limit that I know of..we stayed for 3.5 hrs and they never stopped refilling). Food was actually amazing which I was not expecting. Traditional American breakfast food with unltd. mimosas and crunchy bacon. Amazing.

    We showed up for our 12:15 reservation and were told that the chef wasn't even there yet. Left immediately as we had other plans. So. At least there were a bunch of other restaurants in the area who were actually serving at the time.

    We waited for an hour and a half for the cook to arrive so the restaurant could open and begin serving brunch. It seems like unreliable staff was a reoccurring problem that they need to handle so they don't have to keep turning away customers.

    Food was horrible pancakes were burnt, my friend order a turkey burger and they brought him a turkey crossiant. Also there was only one waiteress in the entire place and to top it off when I checked my bank account they charged me twice for the meal.

    The food was fine. Nothing to make note of but the service was horrific. We had to ask for things multiple times and it took over 40 minutes to get hot tea. There were not a ton of customers but I think there was only one waitress and maybe someone at the bar.

    It's a cheap all you can drink brunch, so there is only so much you expect. But they only put one waitress on for the whole restaurant which makes the whole place mayhem. Also, without that on-top-of-it bartender dude that was always there, more mayhem.

    There is one server and one bartender, so you can't be shy when you need service - flag one of them down! My omelette with mushrooms and avocado was delicious, but the chocolate chip pancakes were dry (and didn't come topped with whipped cream and pecans, as the menu promised). The unlimited beverages kept us there for awhile - a good excuse to linger since there were plenty of tables.

    I live just a couple of blocks from Vintage and I often frequent for their amazing martinis. They have a menu binder with a glossary! One Saturday my husband and I passed by and saw they did an unlimited bloody mary, mimosas and bellini brunch. We had to try it. I had some excellent French toast that was coated in corn flakes, unique and yummy. My husband really enjoyed his eggs benedict. But the best part was how my glass was literally never empty. The very friendly waiter kept refilling the mimosas, even after we'd paid the check! We're definitely going back for brunch. And I'll probably go tonight for a Watermelon Martini. It tastes like a Jolly Rancher!: )

    Burger was mediocre and is nothing to brag about. The shoestring fries are good. When I went here around 6 on a Friday, there were a couple of people at the bar, but no one sitting to eat. The waitress also hadn't arrived yet, so we had to order from the bar. Not likely for me to go back.

    Service here is extremely lacking, but then again this bar is perpetually understaffed during brunch. I do like the unlimited mimosas, when the servers have time to refill your glass, that is. This bar is not bad during off-peak hours.

    Sunday morning a friend and I decided to go to brunch and went onto opentable so we could make a reservation and not have to wait to eat. It looked like Vintage had many reservations so we booked a slot and headed on over. When we got to the restaurant, the bartender said sorry - the computer is downstairs so he didn't have our reservation. The restaurant was EMPTY but he said all of the tables were full and we had to sit at the bar. Luckily, Jesse the bartender is a nice guy and constantly fills up your drink. When it did get busy, he had to run all over obviously under-staffed restaurant to serve tables as well. Food was average. Mimosas were good. Overall, meh.

    Great for the martini list (200 different offerings)! The food was tasty, but is just a tiny step up from standard bar food. It was nearly empty when we walked in, but the bar started to fill up around 7. Definitely nothing fancy, but it'll do.

    Drinks took about 15-20 minutes, we were about to leave just when they arrived. Appetizers took about 40 minutes, which was also a long enough wait for us to consider leaving. It's not that the server was bad, the restaurant was just terribly understaffed for a Friday night... Food was very disappointing (Baked brie and apricot, eggplant rolls). We decided not to further the meal from this point so just paid and left.

    Overpriced meals coupled with a server who needs a lesson in serving. This place has a cool ambiance despite being too dark to read the menus and the food was good. That said, the service was such a detractor that I will not be eating there again.

    They had no record of my reservation, but were able to accomodate us. Did not realize that it was really a bar that happened to serve food. Very small menu with very little flexibility: no choices for bread for sandwiches, no toast served with omelettes, no decaf coffess or teas. Food was better than expected, given that.
