Generally good but Mahi was over cooked and I was served a tail piece.
Vinyasa is always a hot when we go l. We recently had reservations for lunch and once we realized we were going to be late, they were more than accommodating. Food is always excellent and the atmosphere is always friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food and good drinks.
Our visit this time was a little bit of a disappointment. The food as always, was great. We brought friends for their first time here (been to other Cohn restaurants plenty of times) and the service was just OK. It wasn't necessarily bad, everything came out correct, the timing was ok. It just wasn't up to par for the ambiance they are trying to create. It was just the minimum, if you know what I mean. We love the cheddar popovers with jalapeno butter, we decided the mud pie would be easiest to split with all 4 of us and it was delicious. I had the filet trio, that bone marrow butter, OMG! The drinks were great.
We also had some weirdness with our reservation, not sure what happened. On Friday night at 8:45 I got a notice that I got marked as a no-show for our reservation. Our reservation was for Saturday at 7:15. Don't know if it was an OpenTable problem or a Vintana problem but I just went in and booked another for Saturday to be certain. When I did that all the times were available, when previously there were only a few. Don't know if everyone's reservation got screwed up or what, but we had no problems and very little wait when we got there so I guess we'll never know...
Better than Mister A's! Lovely ambiance. The food was superb, and not over powered with butter so I could taste the unique flavors.
Vintana does many things right, and some of those are little things, but important to me.
For example, their iced tea is superb. The popover and the wedge salad were as good as I have eaten in my six-plus decades. Service was top-notch also. This visit was my first ever, but it lured me to return as soon as I can.
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Much more than we expected.
Superb outside dining. Great service as always. Great food and drinks. It's always a hit.
Enjoyed sitting on the patio. Wine selection was good and appetizers were delicious. I was some staff confusion as to who is taking our table during a shift change.
Brought a new neighbor for a birthday lunch. We both enjoyed what we ordered but agreed that the service left much to be desired. Once our waiter took our order he never came back to our table to see if we wanted more to drink (which I did) or see if there was anything else we wanted. The place was not that busy so there really was no excuse for his inattentiveness.
Laura made us feel "right at home."
She is a fantastic wait person and accommodated our every request.
We shall return..
First time to Vintana. We were impressed! AJ & Melissa were our servers. They were outstanding. The food was excellent and such a cool vibe. Did not know what to expect on top of a Lexus dealership! Unusual concept but it works! Great find. We'll be back!
Gluten Free option are limited . Very limited, Gluten has become more n more of an issue
Food was fabulous as always and I love the window view to watch the water fountains.
Great food on Mothers day. 3 course meal with varied options for $60. Service was a bit slow but the view and ambience were perfect. Only one screaming child, so way better than most restaurants.
Unfortunately my seabass was raw so I sent it back. Quikcly a new one came back out but they didn't say anything to acknowledge and no manager came out to apologise. And then the bill came and I was surprised to see it has the main entre on there. I didn't say anything as this was a special night. Would appreciate if the manager were to call or email me. I paid and tipped as one does but left me not wanting to return. My wifes chopino entre has two shrimps in it too. Something wasn't right tonight maybe because it's mother's Day weekend.
Ambiance was perfect, food was tasty (took over an hour to get food but tasty nonetheless), service could’ve been better (empty drinks for extended periods of time), other then that, I would recommend this place but be sure to request a decent seat as we were sat in a dark corner in the back
Great food, ambiance and service (Ramon) Sad that he is leaving for new adventures. Vintanas is always a great experience
My wife ordered the evening special, which was a New York Prime Rib. We expected a prime rib, but it was more of a New York Steak. Nothing like she expected. And it was very tough. She sent it back, and because the evening was late, and we didn’t have time for another entree to be prepared, she didn’t order anything else. All she had to eat was the house bread. And we were seated in the “overflow” area, which was very dark, and right under a ventilation vent, which created a very chilly draft when the AC came on. The evening was a big disappointment all around, which was a shame, because the restaurant is very elegant, unless you are stuck into the “over flow” area.
Food was delicious, but service marginal at best which was disappointing
A hidden gem in Escondido. We love Vintana for all special occasions.
Mother’s Day lunch
We had better service in the past, but food was very good, but I don't recommend the desserts. BUT they messed up big time, in that, our daughter made arrangements to surprise us for our 50th anniversary by picking up the tab. However, we never received the surprise - instead we got the check and paid. Received a call in the afternoon where we were informed of the messed up surprise. Although I was adamant and requested to not charge our daughter at this point and leave our charge in place, they called our daughter and told her that they would credit us and charge her, and this after I specifically requested the opposite. Very disappointing. It is also the only restaurant where one is made to wait consistently for at least 5+ min to be seated even when the place is practically empty. Haven't been able to figure that one out.
Kevin was heaven! Another great meal with friends! The salmon was perfect and substituting a different salad for the romaine lettuce was a great idea!
The 18 oz ribeye steak was fabulous. However, the lobster twice baked potato wasn’t steaming hot. I was disappointed that it was not what I was anticipating.
Kitchen was very accommodating when I asked to substitute. Always a nice visit
I so want to like this place as it is one of the few nice places in the area. However, I have been 4 times for dinner and 3 times for lunch and I have to say the food is just okay, and I think over-priced for the quality. The views are good, the place is nice and the service is good, but the food for the most part is just not what I would call first rate for the price.
Everything was great until we got ready to leave and I asked for the check because I had another appt. they took our cards and left right away but 15 minutes later I had to ask again for them to bring cards back to sign
We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary along with good friends who were celebrating their 52nd. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We live right around the corner and always wanted to dine at Vintana and we are glad we did. We have told our friends about the great service and food.
Very good restaurant and much nicer ambiance than expected.highly recommend!
This was my second visit to Vintana. Unfortunately, my experience was not great. My husband and parents enjoyed their meals very much (Lobster Mac and cheese, beet salad, caesar salad, and sea bass). I ordered the ahi, and I do not recommend it. It was overdone, and the rice and book choy were room temperature at best. I tried to work my way through each of the three pieces of ahi to see if I could find some good bites. I struggled to stomach this meal...When the busboy came by to clear my plate, which I'd pushed aside, I told him I wanted to talk to the waitress. The waitress came about twenty minutes later and asked if I wanted a box for leftovers. At that time I told her the food was not good. She asked if I wanted anything else, and I said no because the rest of my party had finished their food, and it was time to go. So, the waitress blew that one. The good news is the manager did the right thing by taking the dish off the bill. Still, for $31, the meal should have been beyond awesome. And the waitress should have come by to check on us earlier. Would I go back? Probably. I would give them another shot. The popovers are to die for, and I just love the ambiance. But I will not order the ahi...
My family had an Extraordinary experience with AJ our server. She was polite and courteous, the meal was timed and prepared perfectly. Many Thanks !
Awesome food and service. Celebrated my son's 15th Bday. The manger brought him a birthday card signed by the Chef and Staff. He thought that was pretty cool.
The service was very good and the cuisine is always delicious!
The complimentary birthday dessert was very nice - a lovely touch to a happy occasion.
Good food, beautiful presentation. Some of the slowest service ever....we wondered if she’d left for the night....the entire time we were there.
Enjoyed a meal here for our 16th wedding anniversary! Our first experience here and we would go back again for another special occasion!
It took a long time for us to get our first beers, they came AFTER appetizers. The calamari was not as good as we had hoped. Shrimp pasta sauce was very bland. The popovers were very good. The waitress Corinne, foodrunner, and busboy were very helpful and good.
Fantastic all the way around!
Food was OK, service was excellent
Top notch. The manager carne over with a signed Birtday card. That was a nice touch :) . They have the best bread In town!
Great food, great service great atmosphere!
