I have been to Vincent’s several times since it opened it has always been excellent in the my very first time eating there Vincent himself was our server and our dinner was excellent I had the Ribeye special that has remained on his menu and been my favorite when I dine there unfortunately my last time there my high expectations were shot down I ordered the ribeye steak special and what was served to me was a disgrace this piece of meat was nothing less than scraps it was 50% fat and gristle needless to say I didn’t finish it and to my surprise when the server cleared the table she didn’t even ask why I didn’t eat my meal so I told her it was horrible her response was nothing she just continued cleaning the table I looked for Vincent and didn’t see him there I’m hoping this was an isolated incident I’m not sure if I will return not willing to risk getting garbage and be charged 41 dollars for it

It is a BYOB and the Italian food is very very good. Service is OK. Ambience is OK but the food is really really good so for a local place I gave it a thumbs up

This restaurant is nowhere near 4.5 stars. I was excited to have an excellent restaurant so close to home. However, I was very disappointed. Food was very average and service was slow and spotty. Could not understand The special Dishes for that evening the waitress was saying due to the noise level and her heavy accent.

Awful place. Terrible service, mediocre food, no ambiance, and high prices. What more do you want.

Let's start with the service - they had a lot of staff and few tables but the staff was too concerned with setting up for the next day versus taking care of us. We had to ask for things 4 times. So why is it that they come to the table to fill up the water glasses but only fill half of the glasses?

Food was the level of any corner italian restaurant but with high prices. Bread was obviously not fresh as they toasted it. We asked for untoasted bread and they gave us very stall bread.

Good neighborhood spot. Like the menu. Apps were tasty. Had the shrimp fra diablo. Suace was a little spicy (as it should be) with a nice sweetness to it. Service was a little choppy but overall a decent meal & nice experience during COVID times.

My first time there. We will definitely be going back. The place is very pretty and cozy looking. Service was very good.. We had the porkchop milanese. It was delicious. And so big it was just as delicious the next night. Oh and the baked clams was awesome.

Vincent is a great owner who takes pride in his establishment.
great combinations with the menu items.
Gnocchi was a little sticky but that is a tough one.
Interior needs some changes.
Would return

Dined on a Saturday night at Vincent's. Due to restrictions, seating was re-arranged and our table was shoved into a corner. That said, the staff was attentive, the food was good and the price reasonable. I will say that their panzanella salad is short on tomatoes so kinda backward. I had a short rib ravioli which was tasty but smothered in sauce. Others enjoyed their meals as well. Overall, a good spot in Freehold.

Accompanied my party of 9 with ease! Wonderful, eclectic Italian menu, had something for everyone. BYOB!! I wish they took the COVID protocols a little more seriously in terms of spacing out the tables, but nevertheless it was a wonderful time and we all still felt safe.

Vincent’s is amazing. The food is absolutely delicious. The service is wonderful and the restaurant is beautiful. We were a party of 10 and everyone loved the food. Even my 12 year old who hates eating out, loved it and can’t wait to go back. The owner Vincent makes you feel at home and if you want something that’s not on the menu he will make it for you. This is my new favorite restaurant.

Did not have the reservation that I made on open table. Waited 20-25 minutes for a table after my reservation time. Food was great.

When we arrived at the restaurant there was no one there. But we were informed by our server that more reservations were coming in. She made it a point to mention that our specific table was needed for a reservation later in the evening and that we needed to get in and get out. The meal was delicious and the presentation was spectacular! But the service definitely LACKED ! She treated us like we were teenagers in a school cafeteria That had to finish before getting to our next class.

I was surprised at the rushing us because we had a reservation ahead of time. We were in and out within an hour and a half. Because it was New Year’s Eve we were hoping to enjoy our meal and take our time but that was not the case. We also noticed that the tables seated after we arrived were not rushed in anyway.

When it came to coffee and dessert our server literally just shouted at our table “COFFEE OR DESSERT” instead of making suggestions or offering it to us in a kind way. We however still enjoyed ourselves and were raving about the food and the atmosphere but I’ve never experienced having a reservation and still being rushed. And it was unprofessional of her to mention that we needed to leave our table as soon as possible.

Vincent's is consistently really good food. It was challenging to communicate with our waitress given the mask, language possibly but mostly due to screaming kids. Parents did nothing which made our experience not as great as last time. However we'll be back

Food was not very good and was not worth the large bill. I went into this expecting it to be very good but I did not enjoy the entree (filet mignon was very tough) or the appetizer (stuffed paccheri had a very foul taste). Me and my date ordered our meat cooked differently and we received each other's orders. Also the busperson kept coming over and looking at us to try to clear dishes as fast as possible. The waiter was very good besides the one mistake. I would give the restaurant another chance if it wasn't so expensive.

We had a lovely dinner at Vincent's Italian Restaurant. The food was outstanding and the outside seating was very nice. My husband and I went with another couple. We shared the regular calamari appetizer which was crispy and delicious. For dinner 3 of us had the chicken rollatini - moist and flavorful. We all thought it was a definite winner. My husband had the shortribs which were tender and "falling off the bone". The restaurant is BYOB, so we had a nice bottle of wine. For dessert we shared the Tartufo. The food was plentiful, so we had enough left overs to make another meal. And the prices were very reasonable. All in all a delightful and delicious evening. Highly recommended.
