The place was jumping! The food was tasty; the portions huge and our server Joey, was extremely attentive and efficient; not to mention very friendly! The entire experience made the 30 minute wait (despite a reservation) seem unimportant! Thank you Vincent’s and thank you Joey. We’ll see you soon! Fuhgeddabouddit!

The food, as always, is amazing. Portions are enormous, price is good. Unfortunately we were rushed out of the restaurant and our server was not very personable. We were a table of four - we were still eating our appetizer as our entrees came out. As we were eating the servers were clearing off the table. There were other patrons that were there much longer than us and they were not rushed.

I am a regular. I always get the calamari arribiatta and either eggplant or baked ziti. I said they had a special that offered chicken, eggplant & baked ziti so I ordered that. It didn’t come with baked ziti but instead rigatoni covered in cheese. Plus the pasta wasn’t fully cooked. A little disappointed as it was the first time I didn’t enjoy my meal.

Food is always good. Have to say though, we were not happy with how we were seated last night. We were called in from outside that our table was ready. We were a party of 3. We stood there inside for at least 15 mins while they told us several times they were prepping our table. I got really annoyed when there was a party of 4 that walked in and was seated while we were still waiting. A party of 3 can be seated at the same size table that a part of 4 can be. They should have seated us first. Spoke to manager to finally get seated.

Food delicious. Suggestion ... hold up on the amount of sauce and melted cheese added to the dishes. Food is tasty, but drowning.

Vincent's has become our go to place on LI. Based, on a highly recommendation from friends who have e enjoyed going for decades. Food, service, atmosphere outstanding! Only negative was waiting over 30 min, even with reservations. The outside hostesses were clueless and literally lied to us saying they were clearing our table. Then gave us attitude when asked about what happened. But, all in all the rest of our evening was wonderful being with friends and our son who attends college nearby.

It’s not the Vincent’s of days gone by with the very spicy sauce & hard bread covered in sauce & for example scungilli BUT the scungilli was Excellent, fresh & tender & the sauce was sweet…. Served over an aldente pasta. We enjoyed the food. The service was rushed. And it’s extremely noisy, definitely makes conversation difficult.

Went to celebrate a birthday with my boyfriend. We were really exited based on all the great reviews. Unfortunately we were a bit dissatisfied. We were sat in a very small table and we are both very tall people so we were uncomfortable. There was a lamp on the table that was broken and taped together, it still fell twice. Both entrees we ordered felt rushed. My Salmon supposedly came with roasted potatoes that were all soggy. Unfortunately, we left very disappointed and we visited all the way from Sayville.

Too crowded and cramped, outside seating not so great, definitely not a place for good views nor a quiet dining experience.
It was so loud there, food was really good but to expensive.
I booked my table 4 days ago, and still had to wait for over 30 minutes!!!
Also, we were waiting in queue to check in, someone jumps in ahead of us and when we told the attendant that we are next in queue, she still took the queue Jumper's details and guess what that queue jumper was seated before us in the outside table. Even though I had asked the attendant that we want whatever comes first the inside table or outside, this left a sour taste, solely for this you lost 2 stars

Our waiter was very rude. My grandmother asked for Lemon for her water. He didn’t bring it he came back a second time with bread and he didn’t have the lemons and the third time he didn’t have and we ask for it that third time and he gave rude remark saying” yeah yeah I’m getting it” then another couple came in after us and they got their water with a lemons wedge on it. Felt disrespected and neglected. Definitely wasn’t the best customer service. We are huge tippers and this was the first time we did not tip. Vincent’s need to hire better waiters that are more qualified and not hire some young person with doesn’t care. You don’t disrespect elders or people who pay the restaurant to pay you as an employee…….. will never come here again. We wanted to just not even order and jus leave ….
