Service was very slow.
Good waiter but need to be more attentive.
Great food, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, but they had too many tables, seated at similar times to cover.
We had evening specials elk, cauliflower soup, and magnificent salad with lime lemon and honey dressing (unbelievable). Wine was good. Service and auxiliary staff fantastic. Thanks for great evening
Food and service were top notch. Would def eat here again.
Vincent’s has always been the place to go for special occasions
Greg is a wonderful waiter. Vincent's is a special treat. Good food and a romantic atmosphere. It was a wonderful evening. Dover sole. Yum. Burrata salad with avocados and tomatoes. and an orange tart for dessert. Perfect.
Wonderful dinner for New Year’s Eve. The food was delicious and plentiful, the wine list extensive and reasonably priced.
Our waiter was great. Offered us excellent suggestions and treated us respectfully but not too formally. Just a great experience.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
Vincent’s food and service are amazing. It’s an experience with consistent excellence!
I get it, I’m in Phoenix, but there’s a definite mismatch between the menu and the decor. It has the vibe of Rosa Mexicano, not a kind-of-French restaurant. The decor is not the only outdate thing. If you have nostalgia for a dinner cart — they rolled out my two plates on a cart — you’re in luck!
I started with the Anaheim Chile stuffed with wild mushrooms, lobster, and goat cheese. They were the star of tue meal and the only reason I’m giving this restaurant three stars.
I had the heirloom tomatoes with burrata cheese, arugula and beets with my dinner entree. The tomatoes and cheese were cold, like they just came out of the refrigerator. The salad would have benefitted from a warm rest and a bit more salt.
I had the Beef Wellington with potatoes. The cut was a bit tough —. I’d be surprised if it were a USAD Prime cut. I found the pastry oily and the spinach needed more dressing. Gordon Ramsay’s reputation as the “king of Beef Wellington” is safe.
I ended with the soufflé with a Grand Marnier demi glacé. The “crust” was rubbery. Umm, is that how it’s supposed to be prepared?
The wine pairings were great.
Memorable dinner with friends during a holiday visit. Beautiful food, wine, and service and a chat with the chef himself afterward. Couldn't have been more perfect!
We (four) had dinner on Christmas Eve (reservation early) and the staffing and service was a little iffy for about the first hour or so--not enough staff to attend properly to guests in what is a fairly complex service. More staff appeared after the first hour or so. That said, the food was absolutely exceptional, particularly the foie gras and scallop appetizers, the elk entree special. The salads were huge so glad we shared. Two of us had the Dover sole meuniere special which was cooked properly be not particularly flavorful. We cook that ourselves in France, having purchased fresh sole Francaise from the local fishmonger and ours is better. It may just not be possible to send good Dover sole all the way to Arizona. All that said, we will definitely return and likely try the Bistro as well. Now if they just had carollers for Christmas Eve....
Consistently the best restaurant in Phoenix!
Always fantastic food, great service, knowledgeable wait staff, and ambiance!
We can say again, as we have said before, Vincent's never fails to impress.
We have never had any food here that was not exceptionally good. We've never been disappointed, ever. Now the good part: we drive 130 miles each way for dinners here, so we make it an overnight by booking a nearby room. Yeah, the food is so good that we plan an overnight around it. I love duck, order it often, cook it at home, but I have never had duck as tender and flavorful as the duck confit with cherry sauce. The wines are not expensive and always good. My wife had veal and said it was the best she'd ever had. The staff is wonderful and friendly - we always feel welcome here. All in all, a great dining experience with a French flair. We'll keep making the drive as long as Vincent is here.
Best elk Ive ever had. Husband loved the duck confit. Beautiful souffles. Lovely wines. Memorable meal. We are looking forward to another visit.
Overall very good. A bit old and antiquated inside and the mood is very quiet. Not a bustling atmosphere like more of the newer restaurants in the Biltmore/Arcadia area. Older clientele for sure. But service and food was very good. My date ordered the scallops and I ordered the beef Wellington. They brought out a chocolate soufflé for dessert which was incredible and FREE. I probably wouldn’t go again but I can see why people like this place. Very good but can use some music to liven up the joint so you don’t have to hear people’s conversations.
Not my idea of a gourmet restaurant. 1st the chairs were uncomfortable metal chairs with a thin cushion. The table was too small for 4 people for a Vuillard course meal. The selection was limited and maybe overpriced. But the wine list was crazy with 90% of the wines over $100 and not many of them good values. Not going back when diner was a $100 a piece for an average meal.
You will not be disappointed. Don’t be deterred by the “fusion” stereotype. Vincent’s is true to the classic French roots with simple, good ingredients executed very well. Flavors are both subtle and sumptuous and we couldn’t eat another bite after the amazing soufflés. We will be back when in town again and recommend them to locals and travlers alike.
Simply the best French cuisine in the Valley! We love the southwest influence of the traditional French flavors.
Wonderful evening. Birthday dinner!
Enjoyed the food and service. Have been going for 20 years and never disappointed.
We enjoyed a special anniversary dinner and so enjoyed the entire experience! Will be back soon!
Visiting Phoenix for the first time and found this gem, had a fabulous dinner, albeit rich in French flavor but enjoyed it all!
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.
The chef's creations are always full of amazing flavor and beautiful presentation. The service is always attentive without being overbearing.
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.
Vincent's was a rare fine while on a short trip to Phoenix. The food was excellent and I would highly recommend going (again & again).
Fantastic food French with a touch of southwest. Visit this restaurant and wait to be amazed.
The food was incredible and the waiters were fun and friendly.
Vincent's on Camelback always offers an interesting and diverse menu. The food is always excellent, as is the wine. The staff is top notch and the service outstanding. It is worth the money.
Our first experience at Vincent’s was to celebrate my birthday, and we were impressed. The ambiance is quaint and comfortable. The staff is friendly without being overly attentive. And the food is delicious and perfectly prepared and presented. We will be returning for sure.
Smoked Salmon appetizer and portobello mushroom entree were best I’ve experienced.
Excellent service. Full house noise was moderate to low; very enjoyable evening.
I always enjoy the ambience of the Vincent’s. Restaurant week offers great value.
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.
We had an absolutely fantastic dining experience. We will definitely go back!
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.
Love the food and service here. We try to fly in from Chicago once a year so I can have the duck. Everything is always delicious and we love it. Some classic French meals which are not always easy to find. When done right, a true pleasure.
Where was that that James Beard awarding wining food?
Where was the service ????
The only thing present was the price !
Great restaurant week menu. ( our second year) Our waiter, (Howie?) was very efficient and personable. We all loved the food and atmosphere
Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. Every bite of food was delicious. Our waiter was amazing. Will come again when in Phoenix.
