With only a few tables in the room it would seem to be difficult to give mediocre service, but that is what we received. The filet was not up to prime standard as the price would reflect.

A real french bistro in North Michigan. The ambience is cute, good food, and excellent wine list. Wednesday with a 3 course menu, with a New York Streap, is fantastic. Don't forget to to try the Acadian Redfish too.

Wow! What a truly amazing experience. Our server, Calvin, made the experience unforgettable. The bartender, Adam. truly knocked everything out of the park. It truly wonderful that the manager came over to ensure satisfaction. Great job Vintage staff!!

The food that was good was REALLY good! Filet was prepared perfectly, pork chop was super tasty and short rib was tender and delicious! Tuna Tataki was not great quality tuna and was over cooked we sent it back. Wild mushroom spaetzel was under done and actually crunchy. French onion soup was one of the best I’ve had and the arugula salad was great!
Cozy atmosphere and great service!

It was a slow night being a weekday right after the new year. Win for us. We were seated right next to the roaring fireplace and had the place to ourselves for awhile. Our service, I believe she said her name was Red, was witty, charming, and knowledgeable. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, cream of mushroom soup, and we each had a salad. Mine with broiled filet. His with grilled salmon. Being this was his birthday dinner, dessert was called for. The flourless chocolate cake would make you leave your wife and kids on Christmas day.

Our waiter was very accommodating and friendly,knowledgeable and our meal was amazing!!!! We had a table next to us that was not very friendly and we heard the interaction between him and them and he handled it very professionally, he took responsibility for the other waiter that brought out their food. Difficult people with attitudes that cannot be wrong are a hard thing to deal with but he did very well!!!! We will be back again tonight!!!!

We ate dinner here the night before and returned the next evening for burgers and salad and the French onion soup! Service was prompt, food was delicious! They also do a corkage fee which is a plus for us! $30 was fair and reasonable.

We came to Vintage Chophouse 4 years ago and had an amazing meal. This time, it wasn't awesome. The wine selection is good and the ambiance is terrific. We were seated next to the fire place, which was nice, but a bit hot. The table could certainly be a couple feet further away to avoid sweating through your meal. My wife had the restaurant week special and I had the cowboy ribeye. Last time we were here, the steaks were amazing. This time, the first steak came out medium well-well done when I had asked for medium rare. They took it back and it took until my wife was done with her meal to get my steak. This wasn't ideal for our anniversary. Unfortunately, while cooked medium rare, the meat wasn't terrific. It tasted like a select cut of meat, not even on par with choice ribeyes I get locally at home and grill myself. For the price, I expect something that doesn't have big sections of tough tendons and doesn't require the sauce on top to carry the flavor of the meat. The re-fire took about 30 minutes, which seemed long for the quality. It tasted like a quick pan fry that was maybe 4 minutes per side, not something that had been cooked on par with a great steakhouse. They gave me a small discount on the bill. We won't go back when we come to town again.

Food was very good. Server Maria and bar tender Adam were very good. Hostess Jodie didn’t have a clue. We checked in a little early for our reservation and had a drink at the bar. She totally forgot all about us until we finally went back to her 15 minutes after our reservation time. She never even apologized.

We entertained friends from downstate on Friday evening. It was to be a Birthday dinner. I had mentioned that fact when I made the reservation on line, and on a follow up call.
The Hostess showed us to the table I had requested, which was perfect, however, did not give a Birthday greeting to our friend. The server was very friendly and efficient, however did not seem to know of the birthday event either. I mentioned it and he was spontaneous with our friend afterward.
I would not have thought anything about it had I not experienced a different response when having dinner last winter in Florida, on my Birthday.
The same details were given the restaurant by my husband that we would be celebrating my birthday. When we arrived and he gave our name- the Host immediately gave greetings to me. Other staff near by also greeted me. We were led to a Special table, which had a Printed card with my name and Happy Birthday on it.
After being seated, I was presented a long stem Red Rose! Next, a restaurant employee offered to take our picture. All during the evening, every staff member who passed by our table, stopped a moment to say Happy Birthday!! At the end of our meal, which was Fabulous, our server brought a 5x7 framed picture to us! Nothing fancy- a cardboard frame but still a memento of the evening!
The Restaurant was very comparable to the Vintage Chophouse and Wine Bar In ambiance and price points. A few small details, when you know your patron is celebrating a special event, can make a Lasting memory, rather than just an enjoyable dining experience. We will certainly go back to Fleming’s in Florida this winter. I’m sure we will also go to the Vintage Chophouse and Wine Bar again soon. The potential for a small improvement does exist, if you see any value in what I’ve written.

The food, ambience and views were all amazing. The service was terrible... sat at the table 10 minutes before even being greeted by a server or given water. And every time he left, we knew it would be at least half an hour before seeing him again. Never even got our water glasses refilled or asked how our food/drinks were. For a high-end restaurant, we expected much more in terms of service.

We thought the service was slow maybe because it it was busy and they were only two servers.my wife had a glass of wine and after finishing the server never came back asked if she wanted another I asked for the garlic aïoli on the hamburger to be put on the side it was smeared all over the top rather than send back I scraped it off

Food was great. Service was also exceptional. The one draw back is that it is a very small location with no division between the bar and the restaurant, so very limited seating and a bit noisy.

Very nice resort restaurant. Both food and service were excellent. Gorgeous views of Little Traverse Bay. We had two dinners, one lunch and a Happy Hour cocktail here and we enjoyed them all. Food was consistently very good and servers were always very attentive. We highly recommend Vintage Chop House and Wine Bar

We were staying at the hotel & wanted to eat close by as we were tired from our drive. We were seated promptly for our reservation time. Drinks were excellent & the food was very good. We had flank steak & the fish entree (I forgot which fish, either walleye or white fish). Very good. The cauliflower au gratin was delicious. Overall a lovely dining experience with a beautiful view
