We had a childhood friend, living in Texas now, visiting us. We wanted to take them to dinner at a very special place. None other than Vintage Year, of course! They loved it--so we took a lot of credit for impressing them with Montgomery's fine dining place. We had a lovely visit, a lovely evening, fine service, and remarkable food. Thank you so much for always being excellent in every way. We love to come to Vintage Year. We will be back, with or without childhood friends!

Attractive rustic/modern interior with comfortable seating. Beautifully presented, delicious food. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a group of 12 + extremely loud revelers who dominated the sound space completely. They should have been in a private room. I would never return without assurance that our table for two was not seated next to a party crowd.

The best meal I’ve had in a long time. A self described foods, I dine at top restaurant on my travels and have had great food. Vintage Year surpassed them all. The styling and lighting was so thoughtful. Service was impeccable- waitress was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and timely. All the dishes were perfectly seasoned- didn’t have to ask for salt & pepper. I would definitely make the drive back to Montgomery just for another meal.

Bronzini, also known as the Mediterranean sea bass, was Sunday's bycatch special. While I was a bit hesitant to order a fish not caught in our nearby Gulf waters, the simplicity of the special was irresistible: a sauteed filet served over salad. Bonzini tastes surprisingly like red snapper, and Vintage Year's preparation was, as usual, outstanding. The salad, with thinly sliced apple slices, was delicious. Not a morsel was left on my plate.

Our waiter recommended a new addition to the wine menu, a Spanish white, Columna Albarino, and it was a perfect complement.

Went for my wife's birthday which happened on a Sunday so they are only open from 10 till 2. Reservation was for 1:45, but they sat us early which was great! I had the Fried Green Tomato poached eggs and my wife the Creole Omelette. We both thought our dishes were seasoned and cooked just right. The breakfast potatoes were perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Positive experience that I want to repeat.

Wonderful place. A neighborhood gem. We frequent Vintage Year for dinner, brunch, and especially Burger Night on Tuesdays. The wait staff is top notch and always makes you feel welcomed. They love to celebrate special occasions with you! Vintage Year is always one of my top recommendations when asked where to go for a nice dinner or a solid burger in the area.

It's always a pleasure to see red snapper offered as Vintage Year's catch of the day because the fish is always perfectly prepared. Sunday's brunch selection was a simple sauteed fillet, topped with a pat of lobster-infused butter, accompanied by grilled butternut squash and two varieties of delicately delicious cauliflower. Excellent dining! Service, as always, is superb.

Excellent service. Good variety of entrees. The autumn salad with the fried goat cheese was especially good. Even though there was a large party near us that was a little loud, this place is usually one of the quieter, more romantic restaurants in Montgomery.

Overall everything was great with the exception of the NY strip steak. While cooked properly, it was considerably tougher than expected. Just could have been a substandard cut.
