Had a family dinner last week: everything was very tasty and fresh. I will definitely go back from the seafood stew, it was delicious! decent wine selection but they ran out of Pinot Noir. Very flavorful butterleaf salad, my wife raved about the Artic Char. Will go again!

We came hungry and really indulged--started with the delicious mussels, shared a salad, each had an entree AND dessert. Started with cocktails and each had a glass of wine with the meal. Not inexpensive but really good service and excellent food. This place never disappoints.

Food was not exceptional and overpriced. Service was fabulous until we had to return a soggy undercooked pizza and as the final part of our meal, we had to wait 24 minutes for it to be replaced. They did remove it from the bill, but that total gap in service ruined our meal. The second pizza was better cooked but still soggy in the center.

We were very disappointed in our experience at Vin antico. There were several things that were unavailable but we're on the menu Including one of the five desserts and no espresso. The Chicota replayed had one kind of meat on it and a tiny bit of pate . The hamburger came and it was well done when it was ordered medium rare end it took some time to clear the table. We would not go back there nor will I recommend it to anyone else

Food was great. Service, not so much. There was only one waiter and it had seemed like we were waiting 45 minutes to get caesar salads which should not take 45 minutes to make. Other than that, the food was delicious.

We made a reservation over a week in advance for Christmas Eve and got all dressed up for a nice dinner out for the holiday. It was clear they had over booked or taken walk ins assuming some reservations wouldnt show up as the hostess had to run back and talk to a manager when we arrived on time for our reservation. We ended up sat at a table between the kitchen, bathroom and hostess table with people coming in and out of the bathroom making comments on our table and the kitchen door constantly swinging open. The food was good and the area where everyone else was sat seemed nice and cheery, but this was a really unfortunate situation and I am not planning to return. We would have been much happier to be offered a drink at the bar while we waited 5 or 10 minutes for a reasonable table to open up.

I hadn’t been to the restaurant since they got a new chef and I was disappointed in the menu. There used to be more interesting choices. We arrived early in the evening and got our salad in good time, but then there was a long, long wait for the entree. The people next to us, who arrived much later than we did actually got their entrees just before ours. Finally, the Arctic char that I ordered was nearly raw. I wasn’t expecting seared fish. I had to send it back to have it cooked longer. The whole experience was quite disappointing.

We had a very nice meal here last week. The crispy brussel sprouts and kale pops were amazing! The clams were quite good as well. The wait staff oddly cleared the table by piling all of the dishes on the table in front of me, but otherwise were helpful and attentive.

We always go to Vin Antico during the Italian Film Festival and their menus are consistently interesting, varied and excellently executed. The service is friendly and informative. It is important to reserve early, because the restaurant is small and fills up fast.

We stopped here on Monday night at the end of Happy Hour for a glass of wine and a light dinner. The cheese platter was amazing - beautiful rustic bread, 2 different cheeses, golden raisins, honey and nuts -- plenty to share. We also had the pizza, which was good and sharable. Fun to sit at the bar and have a conversation. The wait staff and bar tender were helpful, friendly but not intrusive. We would definitely go back!

The restaurant was out of three entree options. They only have approx 8 options in total, so I thought this was a little much. Two were pasta dishes and the restaurant is Italian. First time visitor but probably won’t go back.
