1st time back in a long time ... glad we opted to dine!! Good time ... good food ... nice crowd. Enjoyed the dinner special ... and the entertainment (i.e., the 'ceasar salad' specialist throwing parmesan cheese balls across the floor to go into bowl) was great. (Relax ... no basketball team will be interested).

Will be back ....

This was our first time at this restaurant. It came highly recommended. Wow, it did not disappoint! The food was tremendous and the service was even better. (The server’s name was Madeline.) I don’t like salads but I ate the Caesar salad (one of their specialties) and I loved it! Best salad I ever had!

Thank you!

our waitress was genuinely a nice person which made it even easier to appreciate how well she did her job. The staff was very accommodating and the restaurant as a whole had a very inviting family atmosphere. The food was spot on, i had no complaints and usually i find something to complain about.

We had a wonderful night. It was a bit of a wait for the food. But, they are currently understaffed, and the table side presentations are more than enough enjoyment to entertain the entire dining room. We will be going back on a regular basis. The drive from Pa is totally worth it.

I previously visited their Wilmington original site and Independence Mall site years ago but haven’t visited in a very long time. That will change as we absolutely loved everything about this place. The owner must have made 12 table side Caesar salads and 1 bananas fosters dessert while we were dining. His exchange with the patrons was fun and seemed very genuine. He literally describes the process as he is making it. You can’t help but root for this place. The food was outstanding. I forgot about the 2 complimentary appetizer bites when you arrive. Some type of bruschetta with beer cheese and a encrusted fish that was so lite and delicious. The Caesar salad is a must!!!

Caesar salad is a great show and excellent taste. Crab cakes were to die for. My daughter had the gluten free pasta and they even had a gluten free option for the roll. Steaks with mushrooms are a good option. You feel like family here .

The server was outstanding as was everything about our experience. One thing that irritates us is too many restaurants are so cold you need a coat or have music that is loud and obtrusive. This is not the case at Vincente's. And despite the short staffing that many restaurants have, the service was fast and efficient. Their complimentary appetizers were an unexpected and tasty treat. Their menu is varied and the only problem was deciding among so many great alternatives. This was our first visit but certainly not our last!!!

My husband and I dined with 4 of our friends and all of us had a wonderful experience! The service was great and the food was fantastic!
We really enjoyed Dan's tableside shows with the Caesar Salad and Bananas Foster, and his family stories. He has such a great sense of humor!
Dan even helped one of our friends who can only eat Gluten free. He was so kind and accommodating with her meal. It was greatly appreciated.
We had such a great time!
I would highly recommend this restaurant for date night, family night, or friends night!!

The food was overcooked, the noise was deafening and there was this loud individual that was supposed to create a salad at your table but managed to throw grated cheese all over the floor and continued to complain that he was not told where to make these salads by the servers. They brought my wife's salad and I had to wait over 15 minutes for mine then there was a 30 minute wait until our main meal came out which again was way over cooked and dry. The spaghetti noodles were cooked to a tasteless goo and the barely put any sauce on the noodles.

I felt very bad for the waitress as she was doing her best keep us from getting upset by offering us more water or ice tea to me. This restaurant is very poor and I will not be returning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The food was excellent and our server Madeline was amazing! She took time to inquired about our special occasion and provided exceptional service. I’d really been wanting lobster tail and although it wasn’t listed on the menu as a dinner item, I asked and the chef was able to add it to the parpadelle pasta dish I chose. We tried the antipasto (cheese & roasted peppers) which were delicious, as well as the Denise crepes, which were filled with shrimp, scallops & cheese, delicious! My husband had the Markiwitz, which had filet, lobster, shrimp and veggies, all perfectly prepared. Finally, we finished the meal with the signature table-side bananas foster flambé. The chef prepared it perfectly and served it with cheesecake! Great accompaniment! Since it was our anniversary, the staff added a wonderful slice of yellow cake that was superb!
Perfectly dense cake that rivaled the cheesecake to my tastebuds. I can’t wait to return with friends and family.
This place would be improved by having a waterfront location. Then it would have dinner, chef performance table-side and a view! This is a must if you like.....food.
My compliments to everyone who made our experience worthy of a 5 star review.
Thank you!

Food is fantastic. Setting is lovely.
But service was very very very slow.
They are doing the best they can with very limited staffing.
But maybe the solution is to limit customers so as to maintain a completely enjoyable dining experience.

Food was great, as was the service. The owner puts on a show, whether he's firing a cheese ball into the Caesar salad or "lighting up" dinner and desert. Very friendly place to visit. We live out of town, but they always make sure we feel at home when we visit. Our go to spot when we travel through this area.

Since we are relatively new to the area, we’re still researching our new “go-to” restaurants. Well we found one last evening…Vincente’s! We just got a good feeling when we walked in, and it continued throughout the meal. The cocktails were well made (always a good start!) and everything else was wonderful. The table-side Caesar salad was among the best I’ve ever had. We were too stuffed for dessert, but I’m guessing they are as delightful as everything else. We will definitely be back.
