    Food and service was truly excellent. Only disappointing aspect of our dinner was our seating. They offered us a table by the restrooms or behind a huge column so the ambiance was lost.

    I was disappointed that the entrees were not fully described in the menu. I was not prepared for all of the sauces and spice. The servers were great and the overall experience was good. Just not prepared for that style of cooking.

    This was worst dining experience we have ever experienced. The service especially by the plus size blonde woman was unbelievably below the bar. She was aloof, inconsiderate, tired, and lacked the desire act with kindness and professionalism. As a historic place to dine, one would think that the owners would take the time to hire capable hard-working employees who are up to their job, unfortunately this is not a priority of the establishment. We will never dine here ever again. This was my first time and certainly the last. Back to my well known locations Ruth Chris, Jeff Rubies, Jack Fries, Napa, and Malones!

    I had the Ceasar salad, pasta with chicken and alfredo sauce, and cheesecake. The salad was surprisingly very spicy. The pasta with chicken and alfredo was delicious, and the cheesecake (described as "New York Cheesecake") was more like foam sprayed into a mold. The service was more typical of what I'd expect at an Olive Garden, with the exception of the tableside final plating of the mains. While this ensures warm food at delivery, it really slows down the process and wasn't done with any flair and was just a waste of time. Others in our group of four commented similarly regarding their selections. Next time we're looking for a pre-theatre dinner in Louisville, we'll look elsewhere.

    Food was great but we felt rushed. As with all places, they have few staff so we waited over an hour for our food and had to eat quickly to make it to our show at the Whitney. The server was very apologetic and comped our drinks. Would go back again with more buffer time planned.

    We had a groupon to use and as soon as we told the server, everything changed. We were treated differently and it was very obvious. Server did not "present" the wine, just opened it and poured a sip for me, who did not order it. My husband and I used to be in the restaurant business and we know etiquette of fine dining. They are not preparing food at tableside...it is cooked in the kitchen and then in the table side dish for a minute and then plated. Because we told the server we had a groupon, his attention went to another table which caused our food to overcook. When the bill was given, the server said, "when using a Groupon, 18% gratuity is automatically applied". Well, we rarely tip under 22% so guess what...he got 18%. We will not being back.

    Vincenzo never disappoints. This is our favorite restaurant and our go to place for every special occasion. We entertained a family member in town for a conference. It was her birthday and one of the servers serenaded her with an it Italian birthday song. It was amazing. The tuna special was delicious, risotto, caesar salads, and pasta dishes were delightful. Tiramisu and coconut cheesecake for dessert. Vincenzo personally stops by each table. You really feel like family here having a special night out in Palermo, Italy.

    We went there for our anniversary as we do every year. Everything was absolutely perfect. This restaurant is an absolute gem, an icon in our city. LeVert our waiter could not have been better! The only thing I wish they could improve on would be to have a dress code. It is a shame that people go to such a fine dining establishment wearing shorts T-shirts and ball caps! At least our waiter had the good sense to ask the gentlemen in caps to remove them. One would think at a restaurant where the wait staff wear white ties in tuxes, that the patrons would at least wear long pants and a collared shirt.

    Enjoyed Vincenzo’s very much! Our waitress was very polite and made several recommendations to us that we ended up trying and enjoyed. Drinks were good and the food was delicious. It was a very romantic setting which was perfect for our celebration of our anniversary. And we met Vincenzo which I thought was very cool! Service was a tad bit slow but not slow enough to make me not want to come back.
