Vintage 1891 Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
There are very few reliable dining establishments where good food and service seem to be a virtual guarantee. The staff are great, the menu is expanded regularly and offers plenty of good choices. (As does the wine list). Vintage has remained our favorite and thus far has very little competition.
This was our first visit here and we immediately liked the ambiance. The comfy winged chairs were a nice touch. Food was delicious and even though it was busy the food cane out in a timely manner. The service was casual and attentive making our visit comfortable and relaxing. It’s quite loud as it very open with high ceilings, but I would highly recommend this restaurant as long as you don’t mind the noise level. Enjoy!
My third visit to Vintage 1891 and it’s always a treat. Great service, great menu and nice wines. Definitely a great date night or to hang out with friends, we love eating in the bar area, such a fun atmosphere! But the dining room looks lovely too, I’m sure we will try that soon!
Every time I think VK can't get any better, I'm proven wrong! I absolutely love this place. Great ambiance, amazing food, exceptional wine list, absolutely phenomenal service! Dennis took care of us, and he was wonderful. So curteous, kind, and knowledgeable! A true professional. He reccomended a delicious Washington state wine for us and it was spot-on! Service is prompt and you never feel rushed. The staff in general is amazing- everyone is so welcoming and warm. This place is a little slice of fine Manhattan dining without the pretentiousness, crowds and crazy. My favorite place in all of Westchester! I can't say enough good things. Whatever magic they have going on is working beautifully!
And to all diners who complain about the speaking noise level- I've never had this problem at Vintage, but it's best practice to remember that the restaurant can't control how loud other people speak, so to penalize the establishment in reviews because of such a trivial and uncontrollable thing is quite silly. :)
Food and service are consistently great! Menu has unique options with subtle Asian influence. There has yet to be something on the menu we have not enjoyed. Beef skewers, salmon tartar, and truffle Mac are must have starters! Decent wine selection - staff is knowledgeable about their selections and helpful with cheese and dessert pairings. I have yet to be disappointed! Vintage has quickly become one of my favorite gems in Larchmont.
We enjoyed our recent Saturday night dinner at Vintage 1891 Kitchen. The appetizers of cauliflower fritters and macaroni and cheese were creative and tasty. We liked our fish entrees: bronzino and salmon. Both came with flavorful side dishes. The coffee was hot and strong.
Delicious food every time. Nice service. Bar area is very loud when crowded but restaurant is only moderately noisy. Didn't have any trouble having a conversation with my date. Wait staff consistently attentive and nice. Food very interesting and delicious!
My friend and I loved everything. I've been to Vintage before but it was her first time. From the nice wines by the glass that our waitress recommended, to our delicious entrees, we were very pleased. Overall, excellent night!
Every time that we go to Vintage, I harbor the fear that it isn't going to be
able to live up to the high standard that it set in all of our previous visits. Yet,
it always does! I usually choose between the incredible P.E.I. mussels or
the calamari for an appetizer, Then, the tough part begins, as the seafood
entrees are all so fresh and perfectly cooked. I try to vary the selection, but
the salmon and the cilantro crusted tuna keep forcing me to repeat. Hard
to believe that they can serve up food of this extraordinary quality in a
casual atmosphere like Vintage ( the owner even wears jeans). To sum it
up, in five years of dining at this place, we have never -- not once -- been
Vintage 1891 Kitchen has a great atmosphere for small groups or large groups. The room's decor is very nice and trendy, yet cozy and inviting. The service was great and the menu options were varied. We had a great dinner and enjoyed the ambiance which let us sit there for a length of time while conversing. ( actually there was no noise at all, nice quiet background music, and we were able to talk with each other, rather than yell in order to hear). I will gladly recommend eating there or planning a party there.
Excellent neighborhood hip eating establishment - service as always excellent
Food quite good but would like some extensive seasonal offerings - as we go there often, we have run through the usual offerings many times and enjoy regular offerings but can get boring. Not enough to stop us from going there for many occasions - "date night", with kids, with friends, etc. They try so hard to please you and will frequently offer to serve things not quite on the menu. Thank you!!
We have been flag waving fans of Vintage. Circumstances caused a pause in attendance in June/July. It was great to return, so much so that we returned several times in August. It was nice coming back to the atmosphere of the restaurant, stylish yet very comfortable. But, Vintage earns praise for the food and the people who work there. We have not been able to "count on" an establishment to be this consistently great, (I think I might have said the before). The menu has an ample number of "hits" so you are just not going to run out of things to enjoy. The wine list is wonderful and if you can make it on a Wednesday, it is even better. We have actually gotten to know the staff, who have been there for years. We really like them all, but you can really sense the influence of the owner, Michael. He is terrific and has done so much to shape the character of Vintage. From the time he meets you at the door and then visits you at the table, you are certain he is proud of Vintage and the people who work there, and when you leave you realize that his pride is totally justified. Bravo!
Excellent food, service and ambiance, EXCEPT for noise level which is really an issue. Wasn't full the night we were there but conversation at a table for 4 was still difficult. This is a real deal breaker for me since dinner is about conversation. Will try it again during the week and see if a conversation can be held. Would really hate not to be able to go back!
We were greeted cheerfully at the door and seated at a lovely table in the very hip (elegant yet casual) dining room. Our server knew exactly what wines to pair with our delicious menu choices and provided attentive, but not intrusive, service. We'll be back!
Vintage is one of our favorite places in Larchmont. It's always a good time and the food is always excellent. However, this time we went on a Wednesday night (half price on wines $100 and under) which is a great deal but we were charge full price for our bottle. Thankfully my husband noticed it on the bill and it was corrected right away. Another thing the staff should mention to their diners is when you're a party of 6 or more that the gratuity is already included. That they failed to mention to us. ....
Came for dinner with the family and are very glad we did. The duck confit dumplings and short ribs were the favorites of the night. We were recommended a delicious bottle of wine that complemented our meal perfectly. Service was perfectly attentive and never intrusive.
I celebrated my 25th Anniversary and chose Vintage 1891 from Open Table. I was not disappointed and my husband and I had a very quiet evening. We had a delicious meal and a bottle of rose prosecco. I had the Branzino w/quinoa and my husband had pasta w/seafood. The waiter gave us each a glass of champagne for our celebration. That was nice!! The staff were friendly and attentive and the restaurant looks like it gets crowded after 7pm. The ambiance was comfy and the clientele was a combo of families, girls night, date night, and groups hanging out at the bar. I would definitely go back with my husband and.... my girlfriends!
We have always enjoyed our meals at Vintage. Our last two have been exceptional. We have never been so uniformly impressed with a restaurant. Having gone there many times we have tried many items on the menu. The salmon and tuna tartar are great, ditto duck dumplings, mussels, calamari and now ravioli. The new major winner is the grilled swordfish. Absolutely the best either of us has had. But no losers on the menu. Cerviche appeared for a few days. It was great, but alas this has disappeared. We look forward to many more great Vintage. meals.
My wife and I went here for dinner with us wanting to try something new. My wife had a roasted chicken with a citrus lime sauce that absolutely delicious and I had the braised beef with mashed potatoes. My braised beef was very dry and the inclusion of the sauce could have made it a bit more savory. Overall, experience was excellent and would try it again.
Date night with my wife was completely perfect. Our server suggested a white wine my wife loved. Tuna tartare appetizer was amazing and both of our fish dishes were fresh and perfectly cooked. Just a boisterous bar keeps this place from being one of the most romantic places in the area.
