The service was slow, they didn't have my reservation listed, the information from Open Table didn't come through until late, we had already started eating our dinner by the time the hostess stop by our table to let us know the reservation just came through, glad they had a cancelation because they were crowded with no available table until late that night.

My wife and I had a great Valentines dinner. The chef makes you the best Caesar salad table side. The inside is very nice and the staff takes care of you the whole time. We will be going back.

Maybe it's because I'm from NY, and I am used to great Italian food... Caesar salad was delicious but the marinara and bolognese was not good at all. Not impressed.

The food and service are definitely good. The caesar salad presentation is always a lot of fun. There's always an appetizer of fish and garlic bread before the menus come out. I would just appreciate not feeling rushed to order right after the menus come out. Could they possibly give us menus and then the appetizer???? Otherwise, the food is definitely good (as I said before) plus it's always nice being recognized by Tommy at the bar!

As always, Vincente's did not disappoint on our recent visit. The complimentary appetizers are a nice touch, and the cocktails were perfect. We always have the Caesar salad which is a show in itself since it's prepared tableside. We love the stuffed flounder which is one of the restaurant specialties and it's always our favorite. The entrée was so large we had to decline dessert. Friendly, warm atmosphere with great service too.

This is one of my favorite places for a great dinner. If you don't see something on the menu they will create a special meal based on your preferences. Excellent for steaks, seafood, veal, chicken and pasta dishes. Do not miss the Caesar salad, which is prepared tableside. Marvelous for entertaining out of state guests. They will be impressed!

Special girls night out with my niece. We had an amazing night! The food was absolutely delicious! The service was friendly, prompt and entertaining. Dan made a delicious Caesar salad table side . Our entrees were cooked to perfection and the desert was out of this world! Coming home to my home state,Vincentes is a must. Wish there was one in Florida. Vincentes definitely deserves the number one rating they achieved.

Unclear why so well rated? The service was mediocre. The food was poorly prepared. Ordered the Chicken Diavolo special - the chicken was so tough that the fork bent trying to cut it, and the knife could not cut through it. Best I could do was tear at the chicken. Expected spicy from the name, but it was bland. Nearly everything was room temperature, except the soup which was nicely hot. The iced tea wasn't bad, but the glass was empty for most of the meal. The dessert was dry and tasteless.

Service is waaay to slow. On a night that was not particularly busy, it
took us two hours to have our meal - without dessert. If you don't
want to spend your whole night having dinner, I recommend that
you go before six o'clock.

I've been to Vincente's twice, and BOTH times the ambience was amazing and exceptional. Friendly hostess, great waitstaff. A very romantic place to take your sweetheart, or to share wonderful food with your family. I'm making Vincente's a restaurant I'll be frequenting.

We had an outstanding dinner and a great time! We prefer to order from the talking menu because chef Danny is a great help in designing new and different dinner options. My wife had Lamb and mushrooms with the demi-glaze sauce while I had mixed seafood Over angel hair. We started with the Caesar salad which is always a fun show. Finished dinner with a freshly made cannoli which was crisp and The filling was excellent and plentiful.

We LOVE Vincente's. We have been going there for years. We were a little worried when Mr Vincente passed away but Danny has carried on very well and is doing his father proud. We have celebrated Birthday's, Anniversary's, friend dinners and romantic dinners for just the two of us. Tom makes a great Cosmo, which Vincente's is the only restaurant I will order one.
If you've never been, you have to have the table side Caesar Salad prepared by Danny and if you do not like whats on the menu, Danny is a walking menu !

Needless to say, we will always go back.

I was more then happy with our evening. I had 8 adults and 2 children. It was my wife's birthday celebration and they were kind enough to let us sit away from the normal Friday night crowd. Food and drink were excellent and Vincente's son is taking up right where his father left off. Been going to Vincente's since he started on Union St. Even had my daughters rehearsal dinner at Vincente's. Love the place.
