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 and service was very good. Danny's tradional "toss the cheese" into the Caesar Salad bowl is always a good time.

Have enjoyed the AMAZING tableside Caesar Salad & Pasta Roma for MANY years! All their food is excellent but these are my 2 favorites. Glad that over 35 years the food & staff have remained OUTSTANDING.

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.

Always a good night out. Table side Caesar never disappoints. Tried the straw and hay app this time and it was delicious. My daughter got the chicken Parm and enjoyed every bite. Nice drink selection (try the espresso martini), friendly service and reasonable prices for the portions will keep us coming back.

The food was delicious. We ordered the nightly special with the Caesar salad update. We also ordered the Italian wedding soup and the hay and straw pasta.
The only issue we faced was that the service was a bit slow and we had to wait a long time for our food.

The food was very good, as usual. However, there were computer/electrical problems in the kitchen resulting in an extremely long dining experience. 3.5 hours is way too long for a table of 2! To the owner’s credit, we did receive complimentary desserts. We would go back, since we considered tonight an anomaly.

Came to have dinner while visiting the area. The staff was delightful and the ceasar salad was divine. A must!! The entrees were good, but not great, except for the brocaleta pasta. That I’d recommend.

Got to be one of my favorites. This place continously never disappoints. I live bringing friends here and see the look on their face when they experience amazing food and service. My favorite place for cocktails, always done right! Thanks Tommy. And the steak, hands down the best! The side dishes are saved for breakfast because there is so much food. 😍. Danny does an amazing job 👏. Let me not forget the lovely waitresses Amy and Rachel. The teamwork and service is always spot on. Thanks to the entire Vincentes team.

Vincente's came highly recommended, so we had high expectations for our Anniversary dinner celebration. Unfortunately, we were greatly disappointed.
There's a lot of fanfare around the Caesar Salad, which is prepared table side. Although the roumaine was very fresh and crisp, the quantity of garlic and dressing overshadowed the lettuce, making it difficult to enjoy. The Broccoli Rabe suffered from the same issue.
Our entrees had an attractive presentation, but fell far short in the area of flavor and quantity. The 9 oz. fllet looked more like a piece of a thin skirt steak. The one scallop was sliced in half lengthwise and the single piece of lobster was tiny. Our wait person had to try 3 times before getting the correct vegetable order. The first was sent back due to having a very unpleasant flavor.
The only excellent item was the Eggplaant Rollatini, which could have been better witout the pieces of red pepper.
For the price, the portions were skimpy. If you ordered a pasta dish, that might be the case, but the chicken and beef items were not what they should have been, More significant, the quality of the food was not up to par.
Needless to say, we should have saved ourselves the trip from Dover on a rainy night.
