- Anniversary dinnerMsJonesDined on 9/26/2014I found Vintage Prime on Zagat, rated the 2nd best steakhouse on Long Island, the best being way too far from me (Long Beach I believe) So happy I chose this place. Dinner was amazing! My seared yellowfin tuna and fillet mignon Oskar was out of this world, and I'm not big on red meat. My husband had thai chili calamari and the rib steak which he loved. Our server was great, lovely interior, a bit loud but it quieted down and we enjoyed ourselves very much. A bit $$$ but worth every penny! Definately will return again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food/service. Prime steakAJShoeVIPDined on 9/13/2014This place is fantastic. It gets busy on the weekend so be prepared. It is a little noisy when it gets packed but what do you expect. The food is excellent and service is awesome. The aged steak they offer is tasty no matter what cut you get and I am always impressed. This place is off the beaten path and well worth the trip. It's no suprise Vintage is rated one of the best steakhouses on Long Island. It's not cheap, but for the quality price is right on target.Special Features:
- Good food but priceyLIProfessorDined on 9/13/2014Vintage serves excellent steak and has a good selection of tasty side dishes. However, the bill with tip came to $200 per couple. We ordered a domestic white wine that costs $50/bottle. They charged $14 for a cocktail with top shelf liquor. That's excessive.Special Features:
- Vintage Steakhouse a Local GemDianeDined on 9/12/2014Vintage Steakhouse reminds me of an Upper Eastside 5-Star restaurant. It is known by few other than the locals (and a few D.C. politicians).Special Features:

- Great Dinner!JohnTDined on 7/18/2014Dinner was phenomenal! Yellowfin Tuna & Clams casino apps were delicious. Surf & Turf and Filet Oskar were both outstanding. Try the Chocolate & Peanut Butter tart for dessert, it did not disappoint. Wait staff was attentive without smothering, Manager checked in once and the place was spotless. Great venue, great food and great staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dinner with MomStJamesLady14Dined on 7/2/2014I had a lovely dinner with my Mother at this lovely restaurant. The food was good but was very expensive. The room was large enough for all diners to enjoy their meals without listening to the group at the next table.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great DinnerFrankNJulesDined on 5/31/2014My husband and I went to Vintage for dinner on Saturday night. We had reservations and were seated right away. Our waiter was very attentive and took our drink order immediately. The wine list is nice- not too overwhelming but had enough of a selection to make it interesting. The crabmeat cocktail I had was outstanding as well as my husband's shrimp cocktail. They were a wonderful way to start our meal. I had the filet mignon medallions and my husband had the NY strip steak. We got the homefried potatoes and creamed spinach as side dishes. Everything was very fresh and delicious. If we didn't live so far from Vintage, we would go back more often.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LoveItalianVIPDined on 5/25/2014Were out on Long Island and wanted a respite from junk food (we were with our grandchildren). The steaks were excellent. The decor needs sprucing up and was too miss matched. It was a little depressing. Some very expensive wines on the wine list. The host and wait staff were wonderful. A find!Special Features:
- well worth the money will frequentOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/18/2014excellent service and dining guests were well pleasedSpecial Features:
- Prixe fixe -great valueJCMLDined on 5/16/2014The 3 course dinner for 39.95 was an excellent value. We had oysters Rockefeller and thai calamari for appetizers, both were outstanding. Main course choices were varied. I had the glazed salmon over veggies which was excellent and my husband had the skirt steak, also very good. Dessert choices included cheese cake, apple cobbler and sorbet. At 7, the restaurant was quiet and romantic, by 8 it stared getting more crowded and a little noisy, but all in all, a lovely dinner.Special Features:
- VintageJGrey622Dined on 5/11/2014Vintage feels like a cozy dining room in a fancy home. The food is good and the waitstaff is attentive.Special Features:
- Restaurant WeekOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 5/4/2014We visit Vintage every year during restaurant week to take advantage of the great food at relatively reasonable prices. The steak and lamb dishes were served in reasonable portions. The wait staff was professional and friendly.Special Features:
- Solid Steak House sans the "scene"ChailanderDined on 5/3/2014An excellent alternative to the traditional "Meat Markets". The ambiance was great, service top notch and food very good. Was it the best porterhouse I ever had, no, was it better than many others, yes. One of the draws of Vintage is that they age their own steaks,few restaurants do this any more, so expectations were high. The porterhouse for two was good, the filet side has the qualities of an aged steak, while the strip side, not so much. Not that it was not a good meal, but thought it could have been better. Lobster Mac & Cheese side was very good, we had the asparagus as well which could have been served hotter (a heated plate probably would have preserved the warmth better. The BEST no, very good , yes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Usually Great, only Good This TimeOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/3/2014My wife and I like to go here for our birthdays. So on this last visit we found the bread stale and only had a small table crowded between two big and noisy tables. While I wouldn't completely write this place off, I will say I would hope for better the next time.Special Features:
- Great steakhousebellbiv13VIPDined on 5/2/2014This is a great place for a special occasion or to treat yourself to a very good steak.Special Features:
- Vintage pretty ordinaryShoshanaDined on 5/2/2014It might have been the fact that we went during restaurant week, but we were not overwhelmed by anything except the look. Very pretty dining room...vintage look! It was a three course meal for $27.95. I started with the oysters Rockefeller. They were really awful! Sorry! Mushy and very very fishy. I had the skirt steak, which was very good...tender and tasty. Surprised that it was the only steak choice on this special menu though. For dessert I had the cheese cake which was good. I love cheese cake and this was not amazing, but moist and tasty. Only 1 steak choice at a steak rest.! We were rushed by the waiter,as we sat down he was on us wanting our order. It was very noisy and we were almost yelling across the table to hear.Special Features:
- Best steakhouse in the areaMarkCisVIPDined on 5/2/2014Another great dining experience! From apps to dessert...outstanding food served by a very efficient wait staff. They blow the competition away. Favorite enttre is the filet mignon medallions...Thai calamari app is excellent. Home fries side...the best.Special Features:

- Birthday at Vintage SteakhouseluvgoodfoodDined on 4/28/2014We had dinner reservations on 4/28 for 2. We were seated immediately. Restaurant was not crowded but was filling up. Our service was excellent, waiter was attentive but not over imposing. Food was excellent. Ambience nice and not too noisy. the only downfall was that I was sitting under a vent and was extremely cold throughout the meal.Special Features:
- 60th birthday dinnerJeanneDined on 4/26/2014This was my choice restaurant for my 'big day', as it is my favorite. As usual, the bartender excels, the side dishes are outstanding, and the steak is worth the price. The ambience is cozy and romantic, and the service is the best in the business.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Vintage was a little vintageDrmarymacVIPDined on 4/12/2014For a steakhouse in Suffolk County it was a good dinner.. but as for a steakhouse in general nothing stood out to me. The ambiance was not there but if you like old school steakhouses you might like this. The service was no different than another other restaurant- nothing special at all. The food was average per steakhouses but nothing great or exceptional at all. For a neighborhood steakhouse I could see how people would frequent the restaurant, but i will not be back.Special Features:
- Best steak on LI. My husbandOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 4/12/2014Best steak on LI. My husband had the aged bone in rib, which was amazing. And the Thai calamari which is our favorite. I had a scallop appetizer special and the scallops are always perfectly cooked.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent steakDannyoDined on 3/29/2014When my wife and i go out for a special dinner, Vintage for their porterhouse steak for two is always the first choice. I eat out allot for business and many times eat at "world famous" steak houses. In my view vintage's steak for 2 is consistently the best that i haveSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- good mealBuonnnnnVIPDined on 3/15/2014good food but very small bar area...but worth the food
- The food was outrageouslyemmaDined on 3/15/2014The food was outrageously good. The service was prompt and not rushed. It was a busy Saturday evening so when full there is a fair amount of noise. Menu is varied with lots of excellent choices. Prices are moderatley high. Definitely will return in very near future.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Went here for a business dinner.Jake07Dined on 3/13/2014Went here for a business dinner. I wanted a great meal and I was not disappointed. I got the calamari appetizer and it was the best calamari I have had. My steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone in my group was impressed with the food and had a great time. It is a bit pricey but this is a very good steakhouse on Long Island so I would say the prices are appropriate. I would definately recommend this place.Special Features:
- Steakhouse shufflesportDined on 3/8/2014We were 15 MIN late for 8pm reservation i DID CALL THEM AT 8PM. WE ARRIVED ,was told the folks were just paying the ck at the table we were going by 8:30 I was ready to leave , I had looked at a table empty since we came in I suggested to the Matre D after explaining we drive an hour to get there .

- Excelent butRichDined on 3/1/2014we were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary , made reservations for 7:00 , did not get to table until 7:30. food and service was great but as we were eating a young couple sat down with 2 children both asleep a 3month old and a 2 year old. it was 9:00 p.m. and my wife being the mother and grand mother that she is was upset that the parents would be that selfish. This type of restaurant should not allow young children in on a Saturday night.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- My go-to "special" restuarantOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/28/2014Vintage Prime is the restaurant I rely upon for special occasions. Whether a special business dinner or a family celebration, this restaurant consistently delivers excellence. The service is wonderful, the menu is varied and each dish is delicious, the wine list is extensive, and even the desserts are delightful. The waitstaff understands the pace of a celebratory business or family meal, and the dinner is never hurried nor is it stalled. Greg provided exceptional service for this visit, and each member of the Vintage team contributed to a wonderful meal. Timing of each part of the meal, from cocktails to dessert, is perfect. Vintage Prime delivers excellent value by providing meals, beverages, and service that are of outstanding quality.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
