A few friends went there for a great meal last night. We all ordered different steak types and the waiter was incredible helpful. We also enjoyed a mini-class on beer tasting which was a great idea. The steaks and side dishes (lobster mashed potatoes!) were outstanding and very tasty. Great restaurant.

Very nice high-end steak house. Due to a strange clause grandfathered onto their liquor license, The Vintage is unable to allow minors on the premises, it's a little odd but they'll explain it to you when reserving the table. If anything, this clause, which some may see as discriminatory, probably works in The Vintage's favour, as it allows couples a... More

We went for a family dinner, and had an array of items off the menu. The highlights were the prime rib steak-- shared with my husband--and the steak tartar. Generous portions and the sides--while a little salty and cheesy (spinach and potato's)--were tasty. The wine is expansive and contains many excellent bottles. Cocktails list was nice. Will gladly return.

Very nice restuarant casual dress code. Ask to have the butcher block described to you, they will show and describe all the cuts they serve and how and why they are cooked the way they suggest for best flavour. Food was amazing, service was amazing had a wonderful evening!

Everything was great - from the service, to the food, to the beverages. We would definitely return. Loved the no kids policy and it is perfect for date night.

I have been to the Vintage Chophouse a dozen times over the years, I usually go to the lounge to listen to the live band. Well I decide to have something to eat. I had a slider and onion rings, one word DELICIOUS. Not only is the entertainment great so is the service and food. You nailed it Vintage Chophouse... More

The Vintage continues to be our "go to" special occasions spot - it has never disappointed and I hope it continues in this fine way. From great servers, to a fabulous wine list, to the best steaks, it is always a treat. A terrific Caesar salad, or baked oysters with Rockefeller garnish, or the iceberg wedge salad starts the meal... More

Ribeye was excellent. Not the best steak I have had but definitely properly cooked. Food overall was excellent and the sides were a good size - shareable but not ridiculous. Wine list is pretty good with prices typical of fine dining restaurants. The service was fair and somewhat indifferent. Slow to bring the wine. Slow to take the order. We... More
