Vestige was very proactive and called prior to our reservation letting us know that due to Covid-19, they were only serving a 4 course tasting menu. I had already saw this online, but really appreciated the call.

The attention to detail and great experience continued as we arrived at the restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The tasting menu didn’t disappoint - the flavors of each dish were so well thought out and the courses progressed well. The meal was satisfying without being too much. Considering the quality and amount of food, the tasting menu was very appropriately priced. I would definitely recommend trying this Ocean Springs gem! Thanks Vestige for a great dining experience - service, food and ambience were all on point!

Extraordinary in every way. The best restaurant in Mississippi and the Gulf Coast. I’m a food traveler who dined at 100+ Michelin starred restaurants every year and this would be worthy. Must fine if you’re a foodie. Tasting menu only now and I couldn’t be happier!

As always, it was perfect. The food was delicious, and the service was exactly how you want it to be, friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. It was a set menu Friday night, so no choices. I probably wouldn’t have selected each dish from a menu, but each dish was excellent. I’m glad to have tried them, and I would order them again.

The taste of the food was phenomenal. Presentation was flawless. Service impeccable. I’ve wanted to try this restaurant for a while and finally made time to do it...they did not disappoint. Flavors and pairings I couldn’t have imagined on my best day ever. My wife and I will DEFINITELY be back and I will try to bring more people with me because everyone should be able to experience this jewel of a restaurant. Fine dining done right. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

The service was great and ambience wonderful. Perhaps are expectations were too high as this place was recommended to us by a local. We ordered the octopus as an appetizer then the shrimp and vegetables for my main dish and my husband had the fresh catch special which was the red snapper. The octopus was tiny but tasteful maybe 2 small bites each. My main dish had barely any vegetables and a few shrimp.My husbands red snapper was a decent portion but was not seasoned. We live near Destin and are accustomed to wonderful gulf coast seafood and with many fine restaurants. I don’t mind paying for higher quality fare however I was sadly disappointed with our food experience at this restaurant. The best part was the homemade fresh bread.

Stellar meal. Our party had a fish entree, steak entree, and shrimp entree. All three dishes were perfectly prepared and each had a special twist or addition making it unique. Service was perfect! Entire experience was wonderful! If you’re in Ocean Springs make sure you plan to visit Vestige!

Service and atmosphere were marvelous. The real misses were the pimento cheese and pickled shrimp also the chicken liver pate. The pate was very sweet and the texture was too thin for my taste. All we could taste was the very sweet jam like topping. I will definitely dine their again. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.

Amazing meal as usual. My favorite local restaurant. The most creative and flavorful presentations. The snapper was perfectly cooked and the pork incredibly tender. Sauces and sides you will find no other place. Great small wine list and specialty cocktails.

Food and service were both excellent. The chef was very skillful at combining ingredients so that each taste was present, but all melded beautifully within each dish...corn soup and beef tongue were our favorites...cocktails were also very good. A lovely evening.

This was the cutest place. Small and cozy with maybe 8-10 tables. Heart of downtown with a great view and awesome ambiance. Fresh local flowers on every table. Easy and convenient parking behind the building. The staff was so warm and hospitable. But the food was absolutely scrumptious. We ordered the wild caught halibut and the black eyed pea spatzel. Oh my goodness--it was marvelous. Presentation was spectacular. This was our first visit but it will not be the last. Tell everyone you know that you must go. It is so worth it.

My friends and I enjoyed our experience at Vestige very much. The service was excellent! The bread that was served with a molasses/lemon zest butter was delicious, and my three friends and I enjoyed the experience very much. One friend had lamb and another had steak. They both said those dishes were excellent. My halibut was just slightly overcooked, but the presentation was wonderful, as were the vegetables served with it. My other friend had halibut too and enjoyed it. The chocolate creme brulee was wonderful! It was the highlight of the evening.

A very special evening for my husband and me! Food was amazing! The salad with blueberries and peaches was so unique! I look forward to “trying” to duplicate it at home.Halibut was cooked to perfection. One of our favorites was the butter with sorghum and lemon zest. My husband said the bread was the best he had ever had! Excellent wine and cocktails. Service was great. Very attentive without feeling rushed. Looking forward to a return visit when we are once again in Ocean Springs. Will definitely recommend Vestige!!
