Had a reservation for my parent’s 50th Anniversary. We weren’t sure what to expect with the COVID restrictions. We were seated on an outdoor patio we didn’t know existed there. Candle lit tables, hanging string lights and a view of the city lights. Our service was outstanding (as usual), the food was perfectly prepared and the surprise of live music playing made for a very special evening. Vintana never disappoints!

I reserved a table for a birthday dinner for my husband. Unfortunately, it was during the purple stage of COVID. I was asked if it would be ok if we ate outside and of course I agreed. The problem was we were sat at a tiny table for two that wobbled back and forth. I told the waitress that the table was hard to sit at because it wobbled. She had someone try to shim the legs but it didn't work. The staff was under staffed and it took a long time to get service and order. I don't blame the waitress because she was very busy and it was during a hard time but it was a birthday dinner after all AND our first time eating at Vintanna. We were so excited but we were disappointed in the table. As we walked out to the parking lot we noticed another area for outside seating which looked much nicer. We are looking forward to trying again but would like to wait for the inside to open.

Birthday - just what I had hoped for (great food, warm outside safe setting). The lobster bisque soup, Sea Bass and key lime pie was outrageously good as many reviews indicate. Can’t wait to go back. Our waiter, Steven, was the most gracious and attention to detail server who deserves recognition.

Lunch was to be a special occasion (Birthday) and reservations made for outside. When we arrived, we were shown to a "nothing special" table but we asked for a much better one. (would have been nice to be shown the right table initially) We ordered drinks (Negroni good but the Prosecco was not!) and a starter. The starter didn't arrive for 25-30 mins and even had to get up, find server and ask the status of the order. Eventually it came and was good but the special occasion was ruined. While the server "comped" us for the starter, after waiting so long for the appetizer, we sure didn't have confidence that we'd get our meal in a decent time. We left early without ordering entrees. What has been our "go to" restaurant for special events.... is now a big disappointment.

It's always a pleasure to spend time with the folks at Vintana. We haven't been going as often as we did pre-COVID, but we still try to get there for our special occasions (in this instance, my birthday). Great food, lovely people and atmosphere.

Thanks for continuing to operate during the restricted lockdown!

Wish the menu was a bit more expansive but I do understand that with supply chain issues and limited customer base, changes must be made.

We've been to Vintano's a few times and are always pleased with the food, surroundings .

This time we had to wait quite awhile for our food. There did not seem there was enough staff for the amount of people in the resturant.

Food was delicious.
We went for dinner and it was cold out. We were seated not anywhere near a fire warmer lamp. We had to ask them to move one near us. We ordered 3 items of which one was the lobster Mac and cheese, but never came out. We told the waiter and he said he thought we didn’t want that and that he can still put it in. We clearly ordered it, but we brushed it off and told him it’s ok nevermind. Then he comes back and says for that dessert is on the house. We thought that was kind of him so we got our dessert. When it was time to pay he gave us our receipt and charged us for our dessert. We told him, he took it of, we paid we left. Night experience was ok. Maybe it was just one of those nights. Hopefully next time we go, we will have a better experience.

Always love dinner here! Start with the complimentary popovers, yum! Then share a Caesar salad as it’s quite a serving. The Korean short ribs were fantastic and my date had steak, perfectly prepared. Delicious!

We had a birthday celebration for our friend. All 3 of our meals were very tasty and our waiter was very knowledgeable and gave us excellent service.

We tried to make reservations for Thanksgiving but found they could not accommodate us. Very disappointing. We will be back again soon.

We love Vintana but no so much this past Sunday evening ... perhaps it was a Sunday thing? The crusted seabass was just okay, not "wow" as we have had there before, although the veggies served with the seabass were great ... creative and flavorful. The Korean take on beef shortribs was a disappointment; in fairness, we are not familiar with Korean food but we definitely prefer their regular shortribs when they are available. Lastly the service was not anywhere as good as usual. The waiter seemed disinterested and we waited for the bill over fifteen minutes after our final plates were cleared.

We will definitely will return to Vintana but, at least for a while, will avoid Sunday evenings.
