We absolutely loved our evening at Vintage Wine Bar! We went for restaurant week and the variety, portion sizes, and value were incredible. They had such a delicious wine list- it was so hard to just choose one to try! I will be back again and again!

Expect upcharges but $50 for a $15 bottle of wine? Hmmm!

Food was rather pricey for the servings...even for Philly! It was good though. Would NOT necessarily recommend going for restaurant week. Menu appeared the same but would have more freedom of choice. Worked out to MAYBE a free dessert depending on choices.

Unfortunately...Not on our "must return" list!

We chose Vintage in part because they are requiring vaccination cards even before they become mandatory in Philly restaurants next month.
We found a restaurant with really good food, friendly service, and a pleasing ambience. We’re adding Vintage to our list of favorite center city restaurants.

I went with my best friend - but this is a great option for a date night ! The low lighting and ambiance, music, etc. also get the wine flight and rigatoni

Not many people inside, good COVID check (vaccination cards) +
Server was overworked (someone called out sick?) but did a great job and was very helpful. Nice selections of wine and cheeses, not cheap but not the most expensive either.
- Music was too loud for easy conversation

Smallest bruschetta I have ever seen...but it did taste pretty good. Did somebody eat part of this dish before it got to my table?

Mushroom sandwich had an offer flavor to it...something artificial that I couldn't quite identify. It overwhelmed the taste of the sandwich. Part of the mushroom was oddly tough and requried a knife to get through. The bottom bun was so soggy it was inedible. I'd recommend staying away from this choice on the menu.

On the bright side, the servers were very friendly, kind, and reasonably attentive.

Awfully uncomfortable hot humid night and instead of turning on the air they opened up the windows. Charcuterie was two tiny pieces of meat and two sparsely portioned pieces of cheese. Took forever to receive it not a good experience

Food was delicious. Service was outstanding. We were sitting outside on a late summer evening, so don't forget the bug spray. We both came home covered in mosquito bites. It is hot in the outdoor vestibule, so the oscillating fans were a godsend. Wine and cheese was superb. Good sturdy chairs and tables with plenty of room. Get the creme brulee.

Made a reservation for an 8:30PM dinner. We arrived at the restaurant right on time only to find that they were closed. Super frustrating to make a reservation, show up and the restaurant not even being open, please don't let future customers waste their time booking a reservation at your establishment if you don't plan on being open. Unfortunately I have a difficult time in booking a future reservation or recommending your establishment to friends and family.

We were hoping to dine inside but were unaware of the requirement to provide proof of vax to do that, but we were able to dine outside. The food was great. I had the arctic char special with the house white. Food was delicious and the wine matched very well with that. My partner had steak frites and house bubbly(I know, go figure. It has been almost 50 years and I still can't!). But she loved the meal and the wine. Steak was done perfectly for her and it was served with a mountain of frites that we both enjoyed. This was our second visit - first was pre-pandemic. We will definitely return soon.

The wine menu is excellent! If you're looking for small bites and good wine, head here. When we started to explore the bigger plates, the food became mediocre at best. Service and ambiance is also top notch!
