    I have been eating at Vintage since it opened, and love their French bistro cuisine. The service has always been excellent, but the head chef has changed over time. On this visit (August 2023), I dismayed to learn that the restaurant has done away with the season specials, which used to be the highlight of every meal - I would love to see them bring it back. The menu right now has made several French standards unpleasantly spicy. If I wanted spicy food, I wouldn’t have gone to a French restaurant!

    My boyfriend and I came in here on Thursday night for an impromptu date night. We made a reservation but did not need to. It was not needed. The place was not packed. However, the music was VERY loud. I had trouble hearing my conversation across the very small table over the loud music. My boyfriend ordered an old fashioned. Probably our first mistake was not ordering a glass of wine. He was not keen on the little cubed ice that was in his old fashioned. Second drink was a bourbon, neat. Can’t really mess that up. The sautéed shrimp were delicious and not over cooked. The Lamb Bourguignon was overpowering on the sauced flavor and less lamb flavor. For $20 I would have much fathered tasted more lamb and less…. Whatever they wanted to call it. Not a bourguignon for sure. Our serve was sweet, attentive and never left me searching for him. But he didn’t hover annoyingly either. He was wonderful. The host, just as kind and welcoming when we first arrived. I will return to try other dishes in the future.

    What an amazing and delightful surprise! Was in PHIL for biz, picked something walkable from my hotel via OpenTable after reviewing the menu. And...? One of those rare experiences where the 'random roll of the dice' was a total winner. A warm, cozy interior (with an awesome music soundtrack!). The service was just perfect: attentive, not hovering, and smart. (I don't recall her name, but her parents had just eaten there and her food knowledge and enthusiasm for Vintage are wonderful!) An amazing ginger cocktail. A terrific arugula and pear salad (where does one find perfect pears in....April? But a note to the kitchen: try adding a bit of honey to this salad, as it needs a small tinch of sweetness to offset the bite of the arugula. I asked for a side of honey and it appeared instantly.) And--take note here--hands-down the best small plate I have had anywhere in about 5 years. A chicken roulade that was the most amazing balance of crispy, salty, cheesy, and acidic (from the sauce and the brilliant addition of 4 cornichon). Seriously--it's one of those small plates that covers every part of the palate and packs so much flavor and creativity that it had the same effect as eating a huge meal. I cannot recall the last time I enjoyed a 'small business travel meal' as much as this. And the on-site manager who stopped to chat? Super-friendly...great energy...and took my suggestions with great earnest. I capped the meal with a terrific espresso martini and left utterly delighted. So delighted that I ate there the next night also (and the chicken roulade was equally stellar the second time as well!) I strongly recommend Vintage. It was a genuine 'surprise & delight' experience! Thanks, Vintage!

    They were running behind and could not seat me for my reservation. After 40 min of going somewhere else while waiting for my table I came back and they still couldn’t seat me. They directed me towards their bar where they didn’t comp me a drink even after being late. The kitchen was running out of food on the menu by the time I was seated. I was accidentally given a dessert and after I started eating it (assuming it was an apology for the late seating) the waiter realized and was super awkward about it saying to the table next to us that he was sorry and that I took their dessert. I will not be coming back here.

    Worst service ever! Bad management and terribly unorganized. After making the reservations through Open Table, and requesting a pre theatre meal for 6 pm on Feb 14 for a party of four, the restaurant called us a few days later to inform us that there would be only a prefixed valentine menu with wine pairing, which we agreed to. Upon arrival we were told we could only have our table for 90 minutes, which was fine because we let both the hostess and our server know we had tickets to the Forrest theatre at 7:30pm. After waiting 30 minutes for our first course, the wine pairing was a no show. My husband had to get up and find someone to bring the wine before we finished our first course. Then the second wine pairing came 10 minutes before the second course. Since we had time, as we waited for our food, we asked the server about the wine. He knew nothing about the wine!(this is supposed to be a Wine Bar!). Before our third course was served, a server brought over one glass of wine for our entire table. Another server told us this was an error, and brought the last wine pairing with desserts. My husband had to track down the server to pay, and Over TWO hours later we left the restaurant, late for the show, and terribly disappointed. The food was delicious, but when you have such bad service, it’s hard to enjoy. We were always on edge, from the moment we arrived. (PS: Oh and we found out that night that we could have ordered off the menu!? Seemed like the left hand didn’t know what the right hand was doing!)

    We went for restaurant week. My girlfriend and I split the restaurant week menu (4 small plates to share & 1 dessert). We also added on the steak frites. Everything tasted fantastic, and was very affordable. It was nice because you can try a bunch of little things without getting stuffed, OR they have the big dishes to fill you up. Loved the vibe as well. Would (and already have) recommend to a friend!

    Been to Vintage for years before the pandemic. I do miss Britain, who as a manager went out of his way to make you feel genuinely welcome. After 2022 NYE dinner, I have three suggestions to elevate the experience back to the pre-pandemic level. First, please offer decaf coffee/espresso as every other restaurant does which allows us to linger a bit longer after a delicious meal. Next, if Chef feels obligated to spice up calamari, offer a spicy remoulade sauce instead of the hot peppers that totally mask the delicate flavor of the squid. Finally, I felt badly for our server who was put into the position of accommodating Chef's vanity regarding how to plate a dish over the diner's request. Won't give up on Vintage, just yet as the food, wine selection and staff make another visit worthwhile.

    The food and wine selections were quite good. The food options and quality were exceptional. We had 6 small plates between two of us, and felt full after. The vanilla creme brûlée for dessert was the perfect ending to the meal. It was a great date night location. The small plate portions are reasonable but the quality supersede the size. Great find on 13th!

    I had actually accidentally canceled my own birthday reservation! But the hostess was so kind and accommodating. I started with the Vintage 75 (delicious) then we got a bottle of the Oxford Landing for the table and it was wonderful! We also took advantage of their Thursday small plates deal and everything we picked was amazing, especially the Parisian Mac n Cheese! Would definitely come again for a dinner or even just drinks with friends.

    We had a wonderful time; party because of the ambiance and the timing, not to mention the food. The food was mostly small portion, like tapas, yet they were flavorful, delicious and appealing to the eyes, There was one table of youthful dinners providing the lively atmosphere echoing through the restaurant. They took down the windows to keep the air flowing which added a sense of care for COVID cautions.
