My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and my birthday at Vincents. We had a wonderful experience and we regret that it had been so many years since our last visit. It is very difficult finding French cooking and the ambiance of Vincents in the Phoenix area. We look forward to our next visit.

My wife had the macadamia encrusted scallops, which she felt were some of, if not the, best scallops she'd ever had. I had the steak which was simply run of the mill. My wife had the lobster potatoes which were outstanding, and for dessert we split a carmel dish, which was very good, while we also had a piece of chocolate cake, which my wife found very good as well (I don't eat cake). The disappointing aspect of the evening was the alcohol selection. It was very limited. My wife enjoys a nice cabernet sauvignon from the Marlborough region of NZ, and they only had a selection of 3. That would have been okay, except they were out of 2 of them, and the only one left was one of the few she has tried and didn't like. She had to settle for a pinot grigio from Italy, which was pleasant, but when out for a special occasion, you should never have to settle. Likewise, their beer selection left something to be desired, and after my first Peroni, they were out of that. The service was extremely good.

Outstanding in all areas. Valet service prompt and courteous. We were greeted with "Happy Anniversary" at the front desk upon entering and leaving. Professional wait staff who were prompt and courteous. Able to explain menu clearly. Right portions. We use this restaurant for special occasions. One candle each on dessert plates was a nice touch.

Vincent on Camelback is a Valley Icon. The food is always delicious and impeccably presented. The servers know their business from being able to describe every item on the menu and giving wine and food recommendations to making sure the table is perfectly maintained and the water and wine glasses remain filled.
Tonight, we visited during Arizona Restaurant Week and tried the pre-fix meal choices. We started with the creamy Wild Mushroom Soup and the truly inspired seasonal salad. This was followed by the Beef Wellington and topped off with their famous flourless chocolate cake with house-made ice-cream and the tiramisu. The wine selection was the Cote ‘d Rhone which all melded together for a wonderful evening.
Vincent is never a disappointment.

Went for restaurant week, $44 per person. Food and service was great but ended up costing $182 for 2 people before tip because drinks were extremely costly (we only had 2 each), so good deal if you dont get drinks, if you do, be prepared for your bill to double.

Vincent's has been around for a long time and has a great reputation. We finally visited during Arizona Restaurant week with another couple. My husband had been craving Beef Wellington for a long time and was excited to see it as one of the offerings. I think had we been seated at a different table and had better service, my rating might be a star higher. My expectations were pretty high. The chair I sat in hung out into the walkway and partly into the adjacent dining room. It was extremely uncomfortable, my back ached and I was freezing with a cold wind blowing on half my body all evening. There are what seems to be some comfy partial booths with chairs that might have been more comfortable. It seemed to take a while to get our drink order in. We did get water quickly with a basket of doughy croissants and some kind of grilled burnt tasting white bread cubes. Even though doughy, the mini croissants were tasty with the soft butter. I expected a leisurely dining experience, but we had to flag down a server to take our order after about 30 minutes. the mushroom soup was creamy but bland, no salt or pepper on the table. Fresh ground pepper would have been nice. The waitress highly suggested the beef wellington. When I asked about the fish she warned me of the small portion, she wasn't kidding. It was a tiny piece of fish smothered in a creamy sauce surrounded by a lot of ratatouille. The lemon sole was quiet succulent and flavorful, however. The beef was so so, tender but not as tasty as some preparations. Our dessert of lemon tart and tiramisu was fine. Refills of water was sporadic. We had to ask for coffee and tea and was served dessert before we had it. Very unfortunate and not up to par for fine dining as Vincent's portrays. The place was not that busy, so I don't understand why the service was lethargic. I guess the place is kind of cute, low light, cozy, cottage feel. I wish I had been more comfortable.

Our family are foodies and we cook at home all the time. It is not unusual when we go to a restaurant we realize we can do better at home. However, Vincent never disappoints. The food there is authentic, satisfying and prepared with time, skills and great ingredients. We will be back again and again.

The best restaurant west of the Mississippi. Creative fusion of classic French and Southwest cuisines make this a destination restaurant. The veal sweetbreads are the best in the country and the service is exceptional. If you're lucky, you might find chilled avocado soup as a menu special. If it's offered, TRY IT!

We were there for the fixed price menu honoring Julia Child. The French onion soup was very tasty with just the right amount of cheese so as not to be too stringy. The coquille st Jacques could have included more than 2 tablespoons of mashed potato. Disappointed. Desserts were to die for including the cream puff stuffed with chocolate mousse and covered with chocolate sauce. We will go back.

We had a beautiful back room table to celebrate my father’s and my son’s birthday. Food was fabulous. I’ve done the chef’s tasting before too. Note if you want the chef’s tasting best to request in advance! My dad was very excited to try the beef Wellington, we even got our 8 year old to try the fois gras!
