So, this is my first opportunity to visit Vincents. Not knowing what to expect, I was eager to find out if this restaurant was a true gem in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. Let me assure you that it was indeed. While the food was superb, the service was exceptional. From the time that we drove up, everyone that greeted us and served us and did their very best to do nothing but please us. What an incredible wine list. I had the Dover sole/halibut combination And she had the rack of lamb. Unbelievably well prepared and beautifully served - perfect. We followed with a mixed berry tart cobbler. This was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. I heartily recommend Vincent’s When in the area and based on my experience, you can be assured of a memorable evening.

We had a great time, however my wife had a GI problem early in the morning and then all the next day. I ate the same food and had no reaction at all. We think maybe the food was too rich for her. The service was terrific!

This was our first time at Vincent and we WILL BE BACK. Had such an amazing experience. Our waiter was so very knowledgeable on their extensive wine list as well as where their food came from and how it was prepared. This was our anniversary and they made us feel so very special. The food was out of this world. This restaurant has been here for over 30 years and it's a hidden gem in Phoenix!!! Go check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Restaurant is long overdue for a renovation. Was seated in a small burgundy colored room with a folding partition separating our table from the kitchen traffic. The room itself was unexceptional in ambiance, a joint with white table cloths as opposed to a fine upscale restaurant.
Have dined here on several occasions in a much better seating area. This was a very special occasion for us and I was extremely disappointed in the setting. It made us feel over dressed.
A good place for foodies but there are better options in the valley if you are also desiring ambiance along with fine cuisine and excellent service.

Quaint French restaurant off out of the main areas on camelback. Second time eating there. I would DEFINITELY come back.

We split the lobster cake. One claw inside each cake. Sauce was good, little salad included had a good flavour.

I had the lobster bisque and my wife had the Walnut salad. Great flavour on the bisque wanted to see some chunks of lobster in there, but either way good. Salad had too.mich bacon but it was still yummy

Had the duck for my entree and my wife had the elk chef special ($48).
Both excellent. No other way to describe them

Dessert was ice cream coffee and vanilla great tasting when I added an espresso.

Drinks martinis were fabulous. The bar tender knew his stuff. It is great to meet someone passionate about his job.

Overall wonderful experience. Wait staff was top notch. Paid attention to detail and made the experience great.

I would go back in a heartbeat.

The ambiance is a bit dated but the food and service makes up for this deficiency

We first visited Vincent's in 1998 and have been back several times over the years. We have observed two things, the menu seems to have less of a southwestern influence and more of a French theme and the restaurant itself is looking tired.Having said that the food was excellent, great wine list and the service was very good.
A classic restaurant!

Vincent hit on all cylinders. Exception food, very noteworthy wine list, great service. When most common restaurants on Open Table get a 4-5, there needs to be a new category for this level of quality. Vincent was a 5+ on that select scale. We have had the good fortune to eat in the top restaurants around the country - with this in mind, this was a very special dinner. We were treated like royalty.

Vincent continues to excel in quality and flavor. Our advance requested sweetbreads were mouthwatering as were the other starters and the lobster salad we ordered. They even whipped up a meyer lemon soufflé for us since the special lemons are in season. It's small and intimate so not a place for your group or a boisterous evening. It remains one of our special favorites in the valley.

Vincent's lived up to the hype. I now know why it's been around for so long and so highly regarded. The Foie Gras, Lamb, Veal, Scallops, Duck Confit, Pecan Pie and flourless molten chocolate cake were knock-outs. Just go ahead and make the reservation, you won't be disappointed.

The best food we have had in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. in the last two months. We were on a mission to try as many restaurants as possible. We visited over 20.

The evenings salad special was fantastic, I had the duck, my husband had the veal. Subtle flavors, cooked to perfection. The only off note was the two Cabernets I tried by the glass were disappointing. The chocolate flourless desert was the perfect ending to a great meal. When we return to the area next year we will definitely be back.

My wife and I decided to try Vincent's as a new fancy date night experience. The ambiance at the place was nice (France meets Italy), fairly quiet (esp for a Sat night), though the tables were very small and cramped. We started with the Maine Lobster salad, which was fantastic and the highlight of the meal. We then had the Maine Lobster with Basil Pasta dish which was displayed nicely but was average on taste (very plain with a very small lobster). We finished our meal with the biggest disappointment of the evening the creme brulee. There were several flavors of creme brulee of which I doubt a single one was cooked thoroughly with all of them inconsistent in flavor (sweet at top with taste of liquor at bottom) and a grainy texture. Overall, I thought it was an average experience but at that price point, I would suggest Lon's at the Hermosa or Different Pointe of View.

This restaurant continually churns out fantastic and fun French options! My reason for being a bit more critical in this review than my overal opinion of this restaurant is: while they did extremely well at maintaining their reservation times (was seated right at my reserved time) they were a bit off on the food. The temperatures the food was cooked to was still great! The beef Wellington was cooked a perfect medium rare. But where the flavor part would normally shine, tonight for Valentine’s Day was flat. My suspicion was the demi glacé was not able to have time for a proper reduction and therefore the intensity of flavor that would have normally been present was simply lacking. The same was felt towards the duck tamale, fun idea, however the sauce was weak in flavor and the overwhelming taste was of the masa. The service was great as always, the ambiance quaint and cute as always, but just the flavor of food could have been back to their typical norm especially on a night like Valentine’s. The dessert they prepared, a version of chocolate lava cake and some lemon bars and pecan bars were lovely :)

In preparation for a trip to Phoenix with friends from Napa, (we're from Chicago) I was responsible for a reservation for Valentine's Day dinner. I saw Vincent's while searching the internet and the pictures reminded me of a trip to Provence. I booked a table on the decor alone. What a fabulous experience awaited us! We were early for our reservation and were shown into a charming room were the French hostess offered us a glass of champaign and delightful conversation. Our table was intimate, and quiet. The service was attentive, our waiter charming. Our meals, elk, Beef Wellington and sole, were outstanding. Our friend from Napa is still talking about his Grand Marnier soufflé.
We plan on returning to Vincent's before we leave, certainly a highlight of our trip.

Awful Valentines dinner. Our server, G, was CONSUMED by trying to rush all of his tables as quickly as possible. We had an early table as we made reservation about 2 weeks before, not early enough for a prime time table. We and the other 2 tables G was serving were never offered the wine list, we had to ask and so did another of his tables. This held up everything as we did not want our entrees or even our starter to arrive before a sip of wine. Nevertheless, G would be by every 2 minutes asking and asking and asking if we were yet ready to order. Again, no thank you, still waiting for the wine. This was to the amusement of 2 darling people sitting next to us that commiserated with us quite humorously. The people next to us had a different server whom offered them the wine list WITH the dinner menu. She was a much more efficient and pleasant server. G needs a vacation.
