Staff was very attentive and pleasant. Menu offered a wide variety of selections. Food presentation and quality was excellent.
Our reservation was for 8 pm and we were seated at 8:15. Everything was good but our entrees took longer than a reasonable amount of time. I’m very patient and right when I was about to ask, our entrees came to our table. The flow of our dining experience could’ve been better. This isn’t our first time at Vintana and we’re always treated very well.
When you are in Escondido, its the place to be! "It's for the Jet Set of Escondido". We won't go back there on a Friday night. Packed solid and the noise level is too much. We must be getting old!
Overall, a wonderful experience. The only recommendation is to not order the coconut-crusted sea bass. I found it to be a bit dry and didn't care for the sweet and salty (sweet potatoes and a type of seaweed on the same plate?) they were going for. However, my husband's filet mignon and the dessert, a type of cake, was excellent.
It’s been our family tradition to eat at Vintana for the past 6 years, they do not disappoint.We love coming here and will
continue to frequent this lovely establishment.
Sea Bass was outstanding. And our server didn’t miss a beat. Great experience.
Love this restaurant and have never had a bad experience there. Many visits.
Christmas dinner with long time friends, good service and great food and food presentation. Portions were fairly small. Attentive waiter, and a very elegant dining area.
Hostess was a bit unfriendly and kurt (black hair). 530pm this past Sunday. The pot roast was too salty and not a good taste...although very render.
The food was not only delicious, but our service was the best we have ever had at this restaurant. Adeline, our server, went the extra step to be sure we were taken care of and noticed if something wasn't right. We made sure to tell the manager before we left, but this will give her an additional "thumbs up". It made our anniversary celebration even better and highly recommend this restaurant to others.
We had a wonderful evening...and our server, Tammy, was special!
The food is awesome.
Great place to go, especially on a Holiday when you don't want to cook. Two thumbs up!
I had an exceptional dining experience! Kudos to the chef! My meal was outstanding. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!
Truly exceptional dining experience. Very comfortable waiting area with a server providing iced water. The host table quickly found our reservation. Prompt seating by a friendly staff member. Quickly greeted with drinks provided and order taken with some knowledgeable assistance. Quick delivery of delicious food prepared by an inspired and skilled chef. Beautiful upscale in every aspect. Highl recommended. We will be back.
Everything was awesome, includind service, food, experience and price.
excellent service, good addict
Still the best place for a Birthday Dinner!!!
We had the Filet and the Shrimp Linguini and both plates were fabulous.
Our waitress A.J. is wonderful and we always ask to be seated in her area if she is working.
Thank you for a wonderful evening and delicious dinner.
Service and food were excellent.
Hostess gave us desired seating.
Dined with another couple for dinner the other night. Enjoyed the ambience, food, and service as usual! Always good
Food was excellent, especially the swordfish, but one of waiters came around and took the appetizer plate before we were done with it. My date and I were talking and he just took it and disappeared. Kind of strange. This is a noisy environment so be prepared for it.
The food was wonderful and the service was as expected. Great wine list.
Had a great time. The food and service was excellent.
A wonderful evening celebrating our Daughter's 40th birthday! The food was absolutely delicious, the service wonderful. What a treat!
Our grandson’s 17th birthday. We had a wonderful table next to the window. Our server, Edgar, was amazing. He made our grandson feel very special!
Celeste Barbier was an absolute pleasant experience Her voice is beyond amazing
Ciera is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is my husband and my anniversary and we had a great dinner.
Vintana has not updated its menu in many years and is simply resting on its old laurels. And those laurels are no longer applicable. The food is good---but it's only just good. There is nothing to rave about at all. The only thing that will get your blood pressure going is the cost of such a mediocre presentation. The cost to "pleasure" ratio is pitifully low and since there is absolutely no pizzazz in the flavor of the meals there is no reason to ever dine there again. Why did we dine there, then? We went because we needed to entertain for a special occasion on short notice, and only because Vincent's Restaurant in Escondido is closed for renovations. The menu is small and there are relatively few choices that are actually appetizing. They still serve the same old popover with dinner with a teeny little spoon of butter that only leaves you needing more, because, well--- that butter is going to break the bank! Let's ask why the menu has never changed? Why? Because they no longer need a chef to prepare those once original dishes. Now there is just a cook who is pumping out the cookie-cutter meals and the kitchen staff no longer needs to think and be creative any more. They're just churning out the same old "meals" so Vintana is really just another diner, albeit significantly more expensive. If you truly enjoy fine dining or are looking for a special place for a special event Vintana is not the place to go to. You will leave dissatisfied, knowing that you paid a heavy price for such common fare!
Beautiful restaurant in a somewhat odd location (Lexus dealership). The service was great and our waiter went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our visit. The taste to cost ratio leans a little heavier on the cost side though. Overall, I’ll give it a B. A nice place to entertain visitors or celebrate something in North County.
We had brunch, not many people there. Awesome food, decent pricing and service was great.
Great food, great service. Enjoyed our birthday celebrations there. We will be back.
Perfect restaurant for a special occasion. The steaks were so tender they could almost be cut with a fork.
Service was very slow today for weekend brunch. Menu was limited. Currently having some digestive issues.
I reserved for a birthday event. When checking in with the front desk I even reminded that this is for a birthday. The lady said, "yes, I do see it under your reservation for a birthday..."
I was hoping they would prepare a small dessert with a candle considering I called beforehand and they said they would do that.
We never got the birthday dessert. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.... for ignoring my request.
It was our first visit to Vintana, but not to a Cohn property. From start to finish our experience was what we have come to enjoy about our time at other Cohn Restaurants; excellence! The host staff, our server, the manager who came by our table, were all amazing. And our dinner was perfect! Thank you for continuing to be our 'go-to' place for special occasions. We will be back!
It was date night and had a great time. Great ambiance. Live music played at 6pm. It’s upscale with many groups gathered
It has been three years since I was last at Vintana and this time was no different than last time. All of my cousins thought the restaurant was really great and we will be back the next time they come to visit. Thank you...
I really enjoy dining at Vintana. I can always count on a nice window table and excellent cuisine. While a bit over-the-top with prices, the taste of the food can't be beat!
