80 year old in-laws in town and needed a great place with nice ambiance. Vintage Tavern is consistently excellent in every category. Service is always amazing, food is wonderful with very interesting variety, the special mixed drinks are superb. My 2021 resolution will be to try everything on the menu :-)
Our server Brian and the GM Ken helped make my wife's birthday celebration extra special. Everything was perfect... almost as if the VT team had planned and executed the evening right from my playbook. We love the Tavern and the Tavern team!
Excellent service and dinner.
We celebrated my wife’s Birthday. They made it special and personalized it.
Food was fantastic and Laurie our waitress was outstanding. Service was great and food was as ordered, we will be coming back!
Great evening out with good friends. The experience was great and food was even better.
I went here with my boyfriend for a nice dinner and we LOVED it. Our waiter was Dr J and he was da bomb!
very under rated it's a hidden gem would highly recommend.
We went for restaurant week. We could not have asked for better food and service. Brie was the best!!! We will definitely be back!!
As always, the food was excellent at Vintage Tavern. The service was very good. One person in our group had elk cooked the way the chef recommened it. That was rare. He loved the elk!
Our server was attentive but not overbearing. food was outstanding. A good treat for a couples dinner.
Our favorite place to dine! Always a great experience.
Love this restaurant. Dr. J is a great server. I can never make up my mine when I go in to eat — everything is great. My hat off to the chef for keeping the food current.
Excellent experience. Waiter staff was outstanding. We sat outside in back. The weather was awesome for a fall evening and fire pit was beautiful. Food was top notch!!
The food and service were excellent. The waiter was very cordial and on top of our needs. We were not rushed and enjoyed a leisurely 3 course meal designed especially for Restaurant Week!
Such a wonderful place!!! The food was great, service too.
Beautiful location and very friendly & attentive staff. Our food and drinks were delicious from cocktails, appetizers to entrees! It is a little more pricey than most restaurants, but definitely a great location for a special evening out, or a quaint spot for drinks with a friend. We'll definitely be back.
I was absolutely thrilled with my experience at the Vintage Tavern. I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. First course- Braised Pork belly YUM !! Second course- Beef tenderloin , mashed potatoes, and broccoli the portion size was pleasing and my food was prepared amazing Third course- Chocolate torte very rich and melts in your mouth but my absolute favorite was the creme brûlée. I will definitely be back the service was top notch my tastebuds can’t wait !!!
This was our first visit and I’m very happy to say that it will not be our last! We were not happy to see that we were seated in the Tavern, but it turned out to be very nice. Lori and Amanda, our attendants, were very personal and professional. The food was excellent! My husband ordered the sirloin medium and it was PERFECT!
Went here on restaurant week and the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Had the elk chops, duck breast and filet!
Server was nice. Food was excellent. This was our first year that our anniversary was not acknowledged with a complimentary toast. Little touches like that go a long with repeat guests.
We always make time for Vintage Tavern during restaurant week and are never disappointed. I’m not sure if they should put the elk entree on the restaurant week menu and then charge an extra $20 for it.....
The Vintage Tavern is one of the very best restaurants in the USA! I have dined there many times now, and it has never failed to impress me! I make it a point to dine there whenever I am visiting family in the area from Nevada!
We had an awesome time for My Husband birthday. Every time I come to Vintage Tavern it’s always amazing😘🥰😉
Dinner was fantabulous, and Dr. J was awesome!
My husband and I came in to celebrate my birthday, all of Dr. J’s suggestions, additions, encouragements, and his personality were most welcomed.
This was our second time coming to VT for dinner and we will most definitely be joining them again.
Mahalo, Vintage Tavern and Dr. J.
If you like a good quite place for you and the misses this is perfect. Food is excellent nice off menu selection.
Both the food and service are top notch. We have never had a bad meal or experience at Vintage Tavern. Excellent cocktails as well!
We had a fabulous meal, a cozy table, excellent service, and an all-around great experience. Vintage Tavern remains one of our favorite restaurants in the area.
Awesome ambience and experience!!!! Food 10 out of 10. Customer service 10 out of 10.
Delicious food and a perfect night to enjoy the patio.
Enjoyed a very nice birthday dinner with family! We sat outside and it was a perfect night.
It was a little chilly edge we arrived, but we were seated by the fire and they turned it on for us. I had the swordfish and it was delicious!!
We has the swordfish and elk for entrees this time around. Absolutely perfectly done! Service always excellent, great atmosphere! Drinks superb. Always a good time!!
Loved the roasted duck & kale, excellent food...great service !
Always the best!
The food was excellent. The service was incredible. My only complaint was that the special, at twice the price of a anything else on the menu came as a shock when I got the bill. I typically expect specials to be more expensive then the menu price, but this was wildly out of line and felt like a “gotcha” which left a bad taste after an otherwise fantastic evening.
We chose the outdoor seating and since it was in the evening it was a little cold. They did offer a blanket but we decided not to take it. I feel that they could invest in some outdoor heaters and lighting if they are going to offer outdoor seating in the evenings. Overall the experience was great thought. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.
Our first time to Vintage Tavern was a huge hit. Lively ambience, and exceptional servers, amazing food, and friendly staff. Will definitely return.
Just bring a sweater it’s super cold in there but Laurie was the best server and the food was fabulous
It was awesome
