Too loud and a little pricy for the whole experience. For the price, I was hoping it was more quiet and elegant. It wasn't bad, just thought the ambiance was too fast and loud for us. Excellent tasting food though!

I don’t know why they ask about a special occasion when you make a reservation or when you arrive, don’t expect that it means anything. Our servers were great and nice. It was a little confusing that there were two because they asked everything twice. The food was good, not great, in my opinion it didn’t live up to fine dinning. Sadly we were unable to secure a reservation else where but I had been curious about this place. It was only half full so there was plenty of seating but we were still set next to others, all customers were set on like one area of the restaurant for some reason which seems odd with all that space during a pandemic. The couple next to us was very passionate so it was a little awkward and the table behind us had one loud speaker. All was fine and I wouldn’t have thought much other than to not come back but our drinks came... my cocktail basically tasted like watered down vodka. My husband asked for his drink of choice, an old fashioned... they don’t know how to make cocktails right. His came with basically crushed ice and an orange slice. Old fashions come with blocks of ice and bitters. Overall it was an expensive let down.

I’ve eaten at A LOT of steak houses in this price range. Ambience, service, cocktails, and wine list were on par. Pork belly was on point. Calamari was 70% breading with tiny pieces of calamari. Quail was ok. Nothing spectacular. Dinner was average at best. 4 steaks ordered medium rare - one came out as ordered. The rest varied between medium and medium well. We all had the ribeye and were surprised at how thin they were. Reminded me of a cheap steak. It was mostly tender but very thin. Probably about a 1/2 an inch. Sides - mushrooms, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus were average. Potatoes were dry. Brussel sprouts were seasoned with pepper and a lot of salt.

Over all for the price we all agreed we were left underwhelmed. I doubt we will be be back.

Me and my girlfriend were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and had an amazing time at Vince Youngs steakhouse. Our steaks were delicious, had a great server, and even got a free dessert decorated with “happy anniversary”. Definitely a special place that we would visit in the future.

First time guests for my son’s 22nd birthday. Overall great experience and exceeded expectations! Read a few reviews about not living up to 5-star expectations, and can say that absolutely wasn’t the case with our visit. Food was exactly what you’d expect at the price and service was a notch above...overall great experience and will visit again!

Two Steaks were ordered as medium and medium well, they arrived via the kitchen staff as well done, and medium well. The kitchen staff had no idea which steak went to which customer. Server stopped by to check but never stopped walking as he asked how we are doing. Steakhouse potatoes side order portion was of a minuscule quantity, maybe half of a baked potato was required by the kitchen to produce.
Pre dinner cocktail glass was so over filled with ice, it was a miracle that there was any liquid in the glass. I have been to VYSH many times over the years, but I do not plan to return

Restaurant will not hold reservation longer than 30min after time reserved (even if you live hours away & get lost.) They dont answer if you try to call & make restaurant aware that you are lost or outside having issues with their valet. Had to park 4 blocks away AFTER we sat in line for 20 minutes outside AT valet booth waiting to be parked and was still not accommodated because they had no spaces available. Hostess was terrible, we sat and watched her pick up phone and hang up because she was "busy" instead of telling customers to hold. Once our reservation was cancelled for being late after dealing with their valet & rude hostess, management comes out with snooty attitude as well & "finds" us a place for 10+ people by pushing a bunch of dirty tables together next to the loudest group of people they could find, only to wipe table after we were already seated. Food was GREAT, but took over an hour to get to us, including appetizers and beverages from the bar even though they were ordered upon being seated. Paid well over $1000 for a birthday dinner that was FAR from amazing & a parking spot in the ghetto. DO NOT go here on a busy night or weekend. You will be upset! Even the cake they brought out for Birthday guest was terrible. Do not know why Vince Young would let them use his name for a place like this. Staff border line gets offended if you ask about Vince Young or where the restroom is...even if you tip them well. We will be going back to our usual reservations at Fogo De Chao for birthday dinners. I would rather spend 2 or 3 thousand for a good time & fun memories than a thousand to deal with a bunch of people that hate their job. They should open at noon if things are going to take that long every visit. We were not the only dissatisfied customers this night & will not be recommending this steak house to my friends, family, enemies, or even the maid.

Filet mignon was cooked to perfection, drinks were strong, sides were good. A bit pricey but sometimes good to splurge.

Vince Young steakhouse is my go to for consistency. Always great food and great service until this time. Food was great but service was lacking. Drink was empty for long periods and waiter was scarce. I get letting you enjoy your food but my tea was empty for 15 mins plus and each time I was told it would be right out meant another 10 mins. I think we were his only table in that section and his main tables were elsewhere. Trying to pay the tab was difficult. Had to hold the card up and ask if someone could find our waiter or take our payment. We had somewhere else to be at that point. This review is mainly for the restaurant and not to dissuade anyone from trying. The food is always great. I will still return.

Went for the Thursday 5-7 Bar and Lounge Happy Hour menu which was $10 for anything and the $30 steak and fries was excellent, the $23 wagyu burger and fries was excellent, the $16 crab cake was almost all crab and excellent - each only $10 Mon-Thurs during 5-7 pm Happy Hour. The drinks were very good as well and $2 off / $3 off for glass of wine. Everything was wonderful, from service, to food and drinks, to outside porch seating.

We had a fun night! The only thing I would nit-pick about would be the fact that we called to let them know we were running about 20 min behind and they told us we were most likely not going to be able to be seated. When we arrived we were seated immediately so I didn't like that we were being given wrong expectations when clearly the restaurant was not as busy as we were being told it was.
