Food was amazing with large portions. Service was a little underwhelming and we had to ask twice for refills. Eventually we asked a busser.

Wonderful service,waitress Danielke was very attentive. Food served very hot and fast. Didn't love my meal,Lasagna a little soggy, but my husband said his veal parm was best anywhere and my Moms shrimp parm also delicious. Delicious huge Napoleon dessert all shared.

In our open table reservation I had indicated that it was our anniversary. Our son and daughter-in-law are out of the area visiting for Thanksgiving weekend and they love Vincent's. The food was typically excellent and we certainly weren't looking for a romantic dinner but we were sat close to the front entrance a table removed from the bar. That portion of the restaurant is very drafty but it was a Saturday night and so we took the table. If we had not ordered an appetizer I think our dinner would have been over in 25 minutes. We ordered once we had eaten our appetizers and our entrees were brought to the table 5 minutes later. The pace was just really poor. We enjoyed this evening because we were with our son and daughter-in-law. We still love Vincent's but I'd dare say we won't be back on our anniversary - and maybe that is the way it should be since it is always carries a high energy vibe especially on a Saturday.

It’s embarrassing to call what we ate Italian food. Food was horrible and drenched in tasteless and watery sauce. Our waiter was very nice. Probably about the only positive thing I can say about this place. Truly horrible. I was very surprised given all the great reviews.

Seats were too close together, staff and guests kept hitting our chairs and seated right by the door so the cold air kept blowing on us. For a party of 12 it was disappointing. Very let down

We had a 4pm reservation on a Sunday afternoon and it was already crowded. The food was delicious as usual and we enjoyed spending time with my parents. Vincent’s is always top notch if you are looking for a great meal.

Had a 7:00 reservation. Checked in at the outdoor podium 7:00 exactly. Hostess says they’re getting your table ready now we’ll text you went it’s all set. We finally get the text at 8:02 !! After an hour delay on our seating our food doesn’t come out for another 1 1/2 hours, was after 9:30 when we had a 7:00 reservation. By that time we’re tired and lost our appetites. Our waiter Mike was great, very attentive, professional, and apologetic throughout. You would think maybe comp a drink or a dessert for the inconvenience but no such offer. Foodwise - Bread & Drinks very good. Entrees were good but the $20 steamed calamari appetizer was chopped up mush, not up to their usual standards. We’ll be back because Usually always a 5 Star experience, we’ll chalk it up to an off-night

Just like dining in Little Italy. Great food and service. Only downside is that every table is on top of the next table. If you can get past the cramped space, you'll love eating here.

Took my daughter out on a daddy daughter date. Place was crowded as it always is. Food was great as usual. Partitions between tables was a nice touch but just made it feel a little cramped. The New COViD norm. We will be back again
