A word from Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro
Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro is located in the Midtown Village neighborhood of center city. We offer over 60 wines by the glass and a French-American bistro menu perfect for dinner. There is always something new, with five seasonally-inspired dinner additions each day. Our menu is flexible enough for a three-course meal or snacks for the table with a price range of $5-$20. The wine list highlights grape varietals from around the world with daily wine specials and flights featured on the chalkboards. If you are not in the mood for wine, we also have about 25 beers and plenty of cocktails. Our kitchen is open until midnight everyday.

    We were looking for a quick bite and a drink before an orchestra concert. We found this gem on Open Table about 1-1/2 h before we got there. We were so pleased! Staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the interesting menu did not disappoint. My husband loves beer and thought the Yards Love Stout was outstanding. I'm a wine drinker and found lots of excellent choices by the glass. Best ever squash gnocchi with sage, pancetta and cream and the mushroom soup was smooth and savory. We told our server that we were in a hurry and he got us out on time without leaving us feeling rushed. Kudos to all! We will be back!

    Cozy spot with great wine and delicious dining. Service is spot on, bar is lively without being overcrowded on a Saturday night. Cauliflower "mac n cheese" and the truffled mushrooms, two sides with the steak, could be stars in their own right. We'll definitely be back soon!

    Delicious duck, mediocre pastry dessert, no decaf coffee, tables too small for two to eat on. The very charming waiter brought us both the same dish, although we had ordered different items. Expensive for small servings and poor service.

    I know Vintage has been around but I got to experience it during Philly Restaurant Week and it was fantastic. Every course was delicious and the recommendations from our waiter on the wines were superb. Can't wait to go back again.

    The food was absolutely fantastic! Best Veggie Burger I have ever eaten. I went with a friend, but I think it's a great place for a date night. Fantastic Wine selection and great overall vibe (beautifully urban and ecelctic).

    The wine was wonderful, as was our waiter. The food (we had appetizers) was good, but nothing really spectacular. Perfect location and a nice place for some appetizers and a drink with friends or a date. Would definitely return.

    We have walked by this gem of a neighborhood bar and bistro several times without taking notice. I guess we were busy. This is a great place for a pre-theater drink or dinner. The portion sizes are quite adequate and while the menu has limited choices, there are several daily specials that broaden the options. We enjoyed the Dorado prepared in a curry broth and served very hot. The wait staff (Mark) was professional, friendly and acknowledged that we were headed to The Academy and needed to "dine on a schedule". The owner stopped by our table as we were preparing to leave. She was very friendly and invited us to return again. We will be taking our foodie son and his girlfriend for dinner real soon.

    My husband and I needed a convenient place to meet between the Academy of Music and Jefferson Hospital to meet for a quick bite before going to the Opera on a Friday night. We have a usual spot, but wanted to try something new. The Vintage Wine Bar was in the right spot with the perfect menu. The staff was very nice, the place was very busy and very noisy. I might add it was first Friday. My husband got there first so had a glass of wine and a starter before I arrived at the bar. We each had a glass of wine and ordered the lamb sliders. They were absolutely delicious. The cost was a little high for a wine bar (the wine is high, food reasonable). All in all, it served the purpose well.

    Food was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Not a lot to choose from either. Wine was a little pricey per glass. if you're looking for a place to just stop by for a quick bite, this is more of a fine dining place.

    The limited menu was quite delicious, but not necessarily beyond what you might find elsewhere. However, the prices are reasonable, and the service is outstanding. No wine is poured without a taste given, and all of the servers and bartenders are educated and knowledgeable about both the wines and the food. Atmosphere is relaxed without feeling juvenile. Highly recommend.
