 (Detroit)·Dined on November 3, 2017

We were promptly seated at a two person table along side the water as requested through open table. We started with a bottle of wine and the shrimp cocktail. This was pretty good, their homemade cocktail sauce was a nice touch. The bread they put on the table (wrapped in a napkin? Did you run out of a serving bread bowl?) was not very good. Something I could get at a grocery store, kind of like a brown and serve. My wife got the crab encrusted whitefish that was pretty good. I got the filet. For 49$ this wasn’t very good. I’ve had much better filets for 10$ less. Bottom line food was mediocre at best and the views were excellent. I would try some where different next time though unless I was staying at the inn at bay harbor.

We made an OT reservation to celebrate our anniversary at Vintage Chophouse. First - the name is somewhat deceiving, there are only 2 steaks on the menu, so it’s hardly a “chophouse.”

We were seated promptly by the host, but service went downhill from there. It took 15 minutes for our waiter to greet us and give us water. Another 15 minutes to get us a martini and a Manhattan. We asked for bread before our appetizer arrived but he said we couldn’t have bread until our soups came! If I’m paying $200 for two people to have dinner I better be able to get some bread whenever I please. Our server refused to look us in the eye and never came to check on us. We had to flag him down for a second round of drinks, a clean steak knife, desert and our check.

Food was decent. Not huge portions - but very flavorful.

Restaurant ambience was nice. Overlooking the bay and very craftsman inspired on the inside.

Beautiful view of the Bay. Lovely for sunsets and a nice meal. Service was a slow, however, we were not in a hurry so we were ok with the slow service. We told the waiter we would be taking our time and ordered a cocktail. An hour later the server came back to the table.

My wife and I were staying in Charlevoix and was looking for fine dining which is not typically available in northern Michigan. We were surprised to find this place on Open Table and were so happy we did! Great ambiance, impeccable service, and excellent food. The prices are actually much cheaper than you'd expect. We dined in the evening and could not take in the harbor view but that is another reason to visit!

Food was delicious. We started with the Mac and Cheese gratin, then enjoyed our meals and finished with the goat cheese cheesecake. Bonus points for the view as we got to watch the sunset as this restaurant is off the water.

The Service was horrible especially for a Marriott Property. Our Server took the order and did not come back to check on us, but did walk by the table at least 10 times. The runner brought our food, but had to remove the salad plates before serving the entrees. I had to raise my hand to flag down our server to ask for a desert menu. Seem like they don't want you to dine st their restaurant.

At 6:30 on a Saturday night they were out of 2 entrees. That's not acceptable. Short rib entree was dry and tough. Filet and crab cake were poor: mushy crab cake and filet was overcooked and wafer thin.

Really nice outdoor dining with a beautiful view. Nice wine selection and a relaxing environment. The beef short robs were tremendous. The lamb lollipop were nothing but fat and at $20, highly disappointing. They were out of side dish that came with my wife's dinner and she got to choose from the menu but then they charged her for the selection an extra $10. The flourless cake was excellent. Overall a very enjoyable experience but some aspects were disappointing at the cost level.

We had a really nice time. There happened to be a wedding with a live band reserved on the abated patio so we got to hear music while we watched the sunset and had our meal. Jason was our waiter and was on the ball and I would highly recommend him. The restaurant was very accomodating in moving us from inside to outside so we could enjoy the sunset and weather and then back inside after the sun set so we could finish our bottle of wine after it got cold. The food was delist, although my steak was over done it still was tender so I didn't have to send it back. We definitely will be back.

My husband and I were staying at the hotel so we thought we would try out this restaurant. The food was good, however, pricey. We sat outside and it was rather loud due to larger groups and kids. A seagull swooped down at another table to get some food. There aren't many lights on when it gets dark, so eating before dusk is a suggestion. Service was ok and bar is rather small.

We had made prior reservations 6:30 for 8 of us & have eaten there many times. This time was not good. Server was slow & seemed inexperienced. Two of our meals at 30.00 each were dropped on floor, then we had to wait for new meals while others ate. One burger meal also not cooked and had to wait for another one. When placing order, Oy one halibut dinner left at 6:30. Seemed a bit early to run out. Now had to order 2 chicken meals (which were then dropped onto floor just before serving). No offer to not charge for those meals. Two desserts were not correct per requests for no nuts, no chocolate. The majority of the food was just ok. Also they automatically added server tip at 20% when it really wasn't good service. Sorry to have a bad review. Was quite surprised, and very disappointed for our guests.

We came to the "vintage steak house and wine bar" for a quiet, upscale dinner. Instead, we were surrounded by loud children and staff that wanted to rush us along. So we paid premium prices ($15 cocktails, $30 main courses) for a big box restaurant experience. Our server was good, but other staff actually removed our plates as we were still eating. Won't return.

We stayed at the Inn at Bay Harbor and had an early dinner at Vintage. My wife has multiple food allergies and the server was extremely helpful. However, when spending over $100 on a meal for two, I typically expect a manager or head chef to come out to make sure they understand the extent of the allergy needs and how they can best accommodate. The server relayed messages back and forth from the kitchen and even took a picture of the steak seasoning's ingredients so that we could thoroughly inspect to keep my wife from having an allergic reaction.

When the food did come out, it was very good. We both very much enjoyed our meals (although the portion sizes are quite small)...

We all struggled with what choice the menu had to offer. When we made our decisions the food presented was very good. We loved the cocktails with the big square ice cubes. People were so mouthy and noisy that we had a hard time conversing. And when the sun started going down - OMG - one of our party could not even see their food. And the curtain was down! This restaurant is close and we like the menu so we will be back. Jason was a great waiter.

Was excited for a swanky anniversary dinner. Failed to take into account that this is first and foremost a hotel restaurant, so we got nice seats with a view....and so did the family with two kids next to us (the kids were very good, thankfully, we were just trying to get away from OUR kids). Service was lacking - it was not BAD, just sloppy - no bussers, so we'd run out of forks, dirty plates would linger, glasses remained unfilled, bread plates were taken, but not replaced, so we were stuck eating bread off of the table. For a $200 dinner, I'd expect some calories burned in this area.
Food overall was good, but not as good as it could have been - certainly not a value. Mashed potatoes were a bit tough, the cherry cobbler too sour. But steak was cooked well, portions were reasonably large. Menu was only vaguely local. Drinks were good, wine list was respectable.
