Chef was able to prepare a special Vegan dinner for my daughter which she absolutely loved.
Vincent's has been our favorite special occasion restaurant for many years and our recent visit was superb.
My husband rated his favorite French Onion Soup the best he'd ever had. We asked for both the tuna and the steak to be well done and, though the chef probably disapproved, he cooked them perfectly to our request. Our only slight disappointment was that the menu advertised a medley of seasonal vegetables as an accompaniment to both main courses but only spinach was served - a very minor criticism. The lemon sauce accompanying the strawberry/rhubarb cake dessert was a little too sour for our taste and we thought the house wine at $12 a glass rather more expensive than normal but, overall, it was an extremely enjoyable meal and we will definitely return.
This place is such a hidden gem. I have been here many times before, but felt inclined to post a review. The food, the atmopshere, and the service is absolutely flawless. This place is perfect for special occasions, and worth every penny. I am so glad I discovered this. Do yourself a favor and go!
The most amazing place for dinner!
This is our favorite go-to place for special occasions. The food is reliably delicious. The cocktails are well-made. The wine selections are very nice. Service is professional, prompt, done with style.
Birthday dinner was awesome
We've been going to Vincent's for almost 20 years, food and service still continue to impress.
We went for my parents anniversary. The food was delicious and the restaurant is beautiful. Very nice ambiance inside. Service was slow, considering we were really the only people there, but not enough to warrant a bad review because overall the food was great and the server was really nice.
The food and service are wonderful! :)
Great food, fresh ingredients. But waitress brought soup for table, but not enough spoons. Had to wait to ask and ultimately get up and help myself. Shouldn’t be the case for such nice restaurant. Other than that, very nice meal and experience.
My folks and I went to Vincent’s to celebrate my birthday. The food was good but the service was slow. Our server was a young lady who seemed disinterested and inconvenienced by us. My Mom ordered a $13 margarita. It was very weak and tasteless so I asked if she could get some Grand Mariner. They charged another $12 for a shot. All I wanted was to make it a Cadillac margarita. So the drink cost $25!!! My bad for not noticing this until after we had left the restaurant. I have never paid that for a Margarita. And they do nothing to celebrate birthdays. The steak was good but we will not return. Vincent’s used to be a great restaurant. They have lost their edge. The restaurant is for sale so unfortunately they don’t seem to care about the customer experience. So sad because it used to be one of our favorite restaurants.
Out of fois gras and wine selection. Duck l orange was lacking orange flavor. Beef Wellington was not tasty. Last time there it was.
Took my wife here for her birthday. She loved it so much we plan to go back regularly.
I had Barramundi, which was fresh and perfectly prepared. It was on a bed of risotto that had excellent flavors but was a little mushy for my taste. Starter was a carrot soup that was very good, wonderful flavors . In general a very good meal, excellent service. Not my first visit to Vincent's and I will definitely dine there again.
Great place. Feels like home and with a great dinner. Win-win.
The best food in town, served in a warm, relaxed atmosphere by skillful servers. A consistently outstanding dining experience.
This made for a wonderful special date night dinner. The service was slow as other reviews had mentioned, but overall we really enjoyed this place. On Saturday it was very quiet which was surprising. We had reservations but it was not necessary for that evening.
It was a lovely meal with a best friend at the end of a challenging week!
Outstanding food and ambiance. I recommend Vincent's for the great menu and friendly atmosphere.
I have been going to Vincent's for years and labeled it as one of my favorite restaurants to date. Unfortunately I had a terrible experience most recently. Upon being seated we sat for nearly 20 minutes before being addressed by our server (looked at my watch). After placing our order we waited another 15 for our app and an additional 15 for our dinner. Keep in mind our reservation was at 5:15 and the restaurant was only about 30% full. I would totally understand if it was late in the evening and packed. In total we were in the restaurant for over 2 hours (mainly waiting).
The food was good but not anywhere as good as I remember.
I had planned for a nice evening with my daughter and ended up very disappointed. Especially for the cost.
Will not return.
This is our go to restaurant in Escondido, and has been for years.
The restaurant's ambience is nice but unassuming. The real highlights of Vincent's are the service and the food. The food is authentically French; however, the portions are decidedly not! I had the beef Wellington and it was large enough for dinner that evening and lunch the following day. It was my first time dining at Vincent's and although I do enjoy a good/trendy scene, it was refreshing to be in a quiet setting enjoying food that makes your day and speaks for itself.
Excellent food! We met friend there and everything was delicious. Cozy atmosphere.
The atmosphere, food and service were wonderful! Met the owner and she was just lovely. Great steak and great sides.
I love this place. It is unassuming, just like you would find on a small side street in Nice, France. We recommend this place all the time. The food is always delicious and is one of our favorite places in San Diego. The chef is so creative and has a new menu for the Trois et Trois every week. Can't say enough good things-please go and see for yourself. Also, the staff is very attentive. Thank you, Vincent's on Grand!
I loved this restaurant. But not so much anymore. Since Vincent isn't at the helm , it just is not the same. The food and service have gone down hill. We will continue to visit but not nearly as often as before. And if no improvement it will be off our list.
Went there for our Anniversary. It was Amazing and the service was Top Notch. Will definitely be back.
Food was delicious and the atmosphere perfect for a decadent birthday meal for my wife.
Like our last visits to Vincent's everything was excellent. The only other comment I have is that the Foie Gras was a bit stringy and a bit overpriced at $25 for the appetizer.
another amazing evening here at Vincent’s .
delightful and delicious !
Scrumptious French food! Cozy and romantic! Loved it,
This was our first experience at Vincent’s and I’m sorry to say it was a disappointment. We were there to have dinner before a concert which I had indicated in my reservation so time was of the essence. When we arrived our table was not available so after a short wait I asked to be seated at the bar. At the time I mentioned to the person who seated us that were attending a concert that evening. We ordered right away and then waited 40 minutes for our meal. Consequently we had to eat very quickly. My duck was delicious but I was not really able to fully enjoy it.
One fish plate-baramundi- was fishy tasting/old.
My wine was not that good and they don't tell you how much the wine is.
On a quiet Tuesday evening, Vincent's chef and staff were creating wonderful dishes in a lovely atmosphere.....right in downtown Escondido!
I am always delighted in my Vincent's experiences.
My only wish would be for Vincent's to have some more French wines in the cellar.
Beautiful ambiance to enjoy great food well served‼️
Food is always excellent and always served as expected. Great wine menu.
Never been disappointed! The best French restaurant in all of San Diego! Been many times in the last year since finding it. So close to home is one of the perks. I do think they have been named Best French in San Diego. The sauces and purees are the best! and never the same thing as every other French restaurant in town.
Went to Vincent's with 2 other couples for their midweek Trois et Trois dinner. The choices for appetizers, entree's and desserts were varied enough that there was something for everyone. One in our party ordered off the regular menu which was also available. Several of us wanted the Baked Alaska, but for some reason it was unavailable. While disappointing, we did find dessert alternatives that were delicious. Our food was very good, but for my husband and I could have had a bit less salt. Our waitress was a lovely young woman who was quietly attentive to our needs. The ambiance was warm, cozy and comfortable. The night we were there, the restaurant was not full, but all guests were seated in a cluster rather which would have been find had all tables been filled. Under the circumstances, it would have been nice to have some additional space between our party and other patrons.
Food was excellent service was a bit slow between courses. Highly recommend this place for a quiet evening dinner
