    I did a post Mothers Day dinner with my two adult daughters. The restaurant is beautiful . We sat inside near a window . Can’t say the view was all that great ( overlooking the car lot) but I was told the patio views are much better . Our server Amelia, was wonderful. And so patient with us as we leisurely took our time with cocktails, appetizers, and dinner. Each of our crafted cocktails were visually stunning as well as tasty.!Our food was delicious. The shishito peppers and maple cured pork belly was amazing! The wedge salad and braised short rib were wonderful too. overall, it would highly recommend Vintana and look forward to returning soon.

    Ordered the experience with champagne for our anniversary. Supposed to be with candles. We had one unlit glass candle like every other table, not lit until dinner almost over. Ordered kung pao calamari. It must have had 25 red hot chili’s. Nobody liked it and had to be careful. The wedge salad was very good but not enough dressing. The sea bass was overcooked, dry and hard to cut and very fishy with the skin still on. 2 orders. The short ribs were rated good. There was four of us. They brought 2 cubes of spice cake complimentary. It was very dry and tasteless. The servers haphazardly placed water glasses and dishes everywhere and took your food without asking. They obviously had no training. Not a good experience. Not coming back. Have been there 5 times and have never had a good experience. I give up. Used this restaurant as it was equidistant from my daughter. Sorry Cohn but this is a loser.

    We had a wonderful experience! Daniel, our server was knowledgeable, funny and attentive. He noticed right off the bat that we didn’t have the Date Night Special Menu on our table and quickly got one for us. It was a nice deal that I shared it with a few of my friends the next day. Now they’re seriously considering going soon for the Tuesday Date Night Special! Overall we had an excellent time celebrating our Wedding Anniversary!

    Absolutely fabulous dining experience. The food was delicious, the service was great, the atmosphere was gorgeous...best way for us to spend our anniversary. I was so happy that Vintanas continues to serve their popover, which are the best I have ever had. The menu selections were impressive...so hard to decide what to order even though we were delighted with our picks! We absolutely love Vintanas and definitely plan to return again soon! Thank you so much for making our anniversary extra special.

    Took our Mom for the prix fixe Mother’s Day menu to celebrate her and we were all blown away. Our group has all dined at Vintana for both lunch and dinner many times. We all were amazed at every dish offered for the 4 courses, all ordering different dishes and tasting each. Wonderful selection of choices, all prepared perfectly and presentation was spot on. Well done chef and team.

    Mother’s Day fixed menu waited 30 minutes to be seated past reservation time. Three hours to complete meal. Slow service. Main courses arrived one set before the other. Food was cold or had been sitting in warmer waiting to be brought out. Drinks and wine over priced. $75 per person ended up $125 ea. Why so slow?

    I wouldn't come back for their Mother's Day special. My review is being considerate and knowing it will be busy for Mother's Day. We had reservations but was not seated until 40 min later, even though I knew there was going to be a wait, I was prepared to wait. Our server was attentive, but from the time he took our order and when we got our food, it took another 40 min. Our server was apologetic but told him we understand. We have eaten here before and the food was good, but this fixed menu for their special day was below mediocre. Our food was warm, even though the plate we were told was hot. My steak was ordered as medium rare , but it was pretty rubbery. I've had medium steaks before, but the quality of the steak tasted below average. The price for this fixed menu on Mother's Day was fair and from past experience eating there, they've had good decent food, but being it was a special day, I would have expected the quality to be better.

    Considering it was a very busy Mother’s Day: The service we received was outstanding. The food was the best compared to our previous visits. From the amuse bouche to the Filipino spring roll to the steak and Florentine— cooked to perfection; brazed lamb hash— delicious; mini filet and fries- the best! My coconut margarita was as it should be. My new favorite dessert- Ube cheesecake- Chefs kiss! Thank you for an amazing experience.

    We decided to celebrate Mother's Day early. Our dinner was amazing! Best french fries and mussels ever! While all the staff was pleasant, prompt and welcoming, special kudos to our main server Jason. He was knowledgeable, engaging, attentive and charming. The view and atmosphere was lovely. We will definitely be back soon!

    It was staffed very well allowing the servers to interact with us. Nice to have to personalized. We both ordered the seafood choices. J the seabags and the H the seared tuna with a curry sauce. we were surprised and so was the server that our meal came out in less than 5 minutes. It was plated and not prepared to order. The tuna was cold and smothered in the warm curry sauce. The rice was warm but the beans barely warm. The sea bass was also cold and the texture was mushy. It did not have the flakey texture that a good piece of fish should have. The message is do not get the fish choices as there are other choices on the menu that will be at least warm and palate pleasing. The seafood choices are not 1 of them.

    Awful experience at this establishment. Came here to celebrate mother’s day early and we’re sorely disappointed. Service was awful. Our server was not attentive and didn’t even show the slight interest in serving our table. All foods/drinks ordered took a while to arrive and no updates were provided and we we’re constantly trying to flag someone to put in our order. On top of all this, they added a 5% surcharge to our already expensive bill. Food was very mediocre.

    We went back for a special anniversary dinner and ordered the Filet Mignon, Hasselback potatoes, Mussels and Spring Salad. Mussels were just ok in taste. Nothing spectacular. But good amount Salad was good Filet Mignon was pretty tasteless if you took the bordelaise and sweet jam. Big difference to taste to something from Ruth's Chris for example for the same price. Server was very kind and attentive. Although when we paid and were ready to leave he did not offer a paper bag for us to take the wine bottle with us. However the buss boy caught us walking accross the lobby and offered to get one for us.

    Heard about this place and was very excited to go. Highly recommend making a reservation as I did and we were outside in early May and was still cold. Heat lamps from ceiling were not good and asked for a floor heater and it worked better. I got the filet (well-done) and garlic mashed potatoes and it was the best I had in along time. So happy. My husband got the lobster bisque and lobster Mac and cheese and LOVED it. Someone else at our table got the vegetable bowl and did not enjoy it and was not what they expected for taste and presentation. They mentioned they would not order again, even though they have eaten there before and got an amazing meal. The food is outstanding and ambience is different. Next time, I would make reservations inside for weather and noise. Outside on patio was a little too close of tables and live music was great and not too loud. It was just spacing and weather. Overall, I will go back for the petite filet and a glass of the Daou Savy B!

    Had not been at Vintana in a number of years. Took friends that had never been there and the experience was spectacular. The food, service, ambiance view, attention was just the way a great restaurant should be. Braun, our waiter, was the best. He was always there when we needed him, answered our questions, and was proud to work at Vintana. Looking forward to another visit in the near future.

    In short, the service was very poor. Most of the staff looked very young (inexperience?) but the food was good. rarely saw our waiter and he only checked on us once after we were well into our meals. When we were done, our plates sat dirty in front of us for way too long. several other staff members in addition to our waiter walked right past us even after looking down at our table! it was frustrating. I also had to ask for my glass of wine twice. in a nutshell. I've had dinner here a few times in the past and it's always been good. this time, not so much.

    Another fabulous meal courtesy of Vintana, although no hint of Indian fusion on the menu this evening. Still, the food was superb and we had some delightful flamenco guitar as an acoustic backdrop.

    Great service from the time I called in to switch my reservation due to traffic until the time I left, A1 service. It was what I expected as I dined in many fine dining restaurants. They also accommodate me with my vegan lifestyle. It truly was an experience I will never forget.

    This was 3rd visit to Vintana since February. The service, the food & ambience are stellar, every time. I got to meet Chef Deb Scott today when she stopped by our table, a total thrill!! I will recommend Vintana to all my SoCal friends & look forward to returning next year when I visit. Buon Appetito a tutti 😋🍾🥂❤️

    The service and the food were excellent. There were 5 of us and each one of us ordered something different and thought our meals were excellent. Desserts were also excellent and we appreciated the complimentary dessert for our daughter’s and son-in-law’s wedding anniversary. Thank you!

    Fantastic location with amazing views. Staff was super friendly and food was delicious. We were there for lunch and we planned on longer than usual, but plan on even more longer than usual - that's my only complaint. Server apologized when it took over 20 mins for one of our guests drink to arrive. Highly recommend!!!
