Vincent's Italian Restaurant
This was the worst dining experience we have ever had. Appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive to table, and entrees took 1 1/2 hours. We had to constantly complain to our waitress and other staff regarding status of orders. African Americans— DO NOT DINE AT THIS ESTABLISHMENT. We were the only 3 African Americans in the restaurant and were continuously overlooked. Other customers arrived after us and received service before us. The staff is not fluent in English and not accommodating, and to add insult to injury—they have the nerve to have auto gratuity! This place had poor service and was a huge disappointment. HIGHLY UNRECOMMENDED!
Absolutely delicious patio seating was fabulous wait staff was very friendly. We just happen to find Vincent’s because we were there in NJ for a Lacrosse’s tourney and a few of the kids wanted Italian. So glad we chose Vincent’s you will not be disappointed.
We had baked clams, green salad with great dressing. I had veal cutlet Parm and it was very good. My husband had chicken picata with linguini, he loved it. We skipped desert. Could not eat anything else.
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
This is the second time we’ve been here. Great food but we are the only diners. Strange
Quality Food and Preparation.
It's a BYOB which is a positive to us.
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
Great outdoor terrace eating, good food. Waitress wasn’t the best but I’ve been there on other occasions with wonderful service.
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.
We enjoy this BYOB Italian Restaurant. Will return again.
Filet minion was unbelievable and the short rib was cooked perfectly. The food is out of this world, friendly staff and family owned, can’t beat it.
Service was excellent and food superior. First time there. We will be back.
First time there, certainly not our last! Everything was perfect! Sam our waiter was awesome, the food delicious! Highly recommend!
Another excellent meal at Vincent’s
This place is the best! They helped me
Propose and wish happy birthday to my loved one! They are so great. Please don’t hesitate to visit. The food was amazing too!
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.
Vincent's is amazing! Everything from the food to the service was wonderful.
Wonderful dinner. Great apps and salad. Veal parmigiana was very good Chef came and talked to us to be sure everything was satisfactory. Very nice man. Good to see them doing well in these trying times. We will be back.
Really enjoyed this place. Food was great and each dish had a special twist added by chef Vincent
Best Mussels In red sauce i have had in very long time... try the fried artichokes and tomato puree
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.
Great food as always; service and atmosphere made for a terrific all-around experience
Food was delicious!! Excellent service
Excellent as always
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.
This place is a hidden gem The food is amazing and the owner Vincent is an awesome guy try Vincent’s you will love it
Visited here twice. Food is consistently great and can't beat the service. Willing to make your dinner the way you like it.
Food was great and the service was exceptional....
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
Beautiful dinner with tremendous service. Waiter was knowledgeable and very friendly and courteous. Will definitely be back!
We were very disappointed in all the dishes we ordered. I won t be returning. Food is poor at best.
Very hood as always
Love the food!
Excellent food and service. Vincent the owner talks to customers and makes sure everything is good!
