Vintage is a good description

We went to Vintage for a business dinner. Wine selection was great. Our server was outstanding. She developed instant rapport with us. She was perfectly attentive. Not intrusive, but made sure we wanted for nothing. At the end of the meal, she was even up to the task of selecting our dessert (we... read more

Nice decor and atmosphere, very professional and knowledgable wait staff and decent menu. I liked the meat presentation, it was educational. Food is a little on the pricier side but sides are DELICIOUS! Share...they are big enough portions. The wine list is seriously extensive. I didn't have room left for desert but saved room for a glass of port.

Vintage is aptly named. The attempt to be a vintage establishment is very successful from the decor to the staff to the menu. The staff were very pleasant and attentive making for excellent service. My braised short rib was tasty and vegetables were perfectly prepared. My favourite side dishes were the mushrooms, probably the tastiest I have ever had,and the... More

Unfortunately this place was selected for our Christmas party. Now perhaps it was because they tried to accommodate 21 people (in 6 separate tables) or maybe it was because it was on a night of a flames game, or perhaps a combination of both, but the food and service were brutal. The table that ordered last got their food first... More

On work, and been here a few times. The food and the cut of meat is outstanding. Service is good but the cut of steak you do not mind paying for when it's so good. Would highly recommend Only for steak.

We took our son here for his birthday, and it was magnificent. The atmosphere here is amazing, the servers top notch and the food unequivocally spectacular. We had the shrimp cocktail and the shrimp and seafood sauce was to die for. We were shown the steak board after our drink orders were taken and my son and I opted for... More

Ate dinner on the tavern side. Excellent service: prompt and knowledgeable. Good menu and expansive drink/wine menu. The decor and ambience are nice. The dinning room side looked very inviting, but we preferred the more relaxed tavern side. The meal was superb. The steak was cooked to perfection. Fantastic flavour. My only criticism would be the exorbitant price. It was... More

This was a first time experience for my wife and myself however our son eats here regularly. Vintage is a high end Chop House and the prices are as such. We ordered shareable plates and our own steaks. Everything was cooked to perfection. Service was attentive and prompt. The wine list is extensive and pares well with the food. Everthing... More
