i have dined at Chez Vincent for more than 40 years, the last time in 2000, and have always enjoyed the decor, atmosphere, service and food there. This time was different: the restaurant was unexpectedly quiet and lacked atmosphere, the food was disappointing and poor value for money at €60 per person.

Have been to Vincent's on and off for 25 years, but this time was after a gap of 8 years. The place is still the same. Wonderful atmosphere, crowded and bustling, slow service, and overworked waiting staff. But excellent food and reasonable value for money. A very lively restaurant and always worth a visit.Go here rather than the restaurants in... More

As you may have seen from the pictures this restaurant has some great decor and feels very comfortable. The food was superb and having the crepe flambed at the table was a great bit of theatre. However the service was quite slow with our waiter covering over 20 covers as well as plating up the food.

First of all the reservation was made three months in advance. When we came the tables were far from ready. It took 45 minutes before any wine and water came to the table. Then extra 30 minutes before two sad looking shrimp croquettes were served fresh from the freezer and a quick visit in friture. Again 30 minutes and a... More

Some of the best rump steak our small party had eaten. The traditional restaurant has great ambiance BUT almost 2 hours for 2 courses AND we were among the first few groups at the 7 pm booking. Needs to re-organise its kitchen process.

As a belgian I had to entertain my boss. He wanted to go to Vincent. A typical brussels restaurant where the 'ketjes' serve you arrogantly. Don't dare to call for the wrong waiter... Food was ok but no worth a detour. You have to eat during one of the two dinner shifts. Once your shift is over they make it... More

We don't go to Vincent just for the meal, it's a small event! We arrived for lunch on a busy Saturday wtihout a reservation, but a waiter found us a table along the wall. Lots of people, good atmosphere, traditionally decorated with old tiles on the walls. Our waiter was both efficient and friendly, the moules fresh and just the... More

This restaurant needs the reservation in advance. We need jacket. The service and foods are excellent. I always invite important customer and the top manegement of HQ to this resutaurant. You can enjoy typical good foods, wine, beer and dessert of Belgium.

Friendly staff and nice place . But the food is on the expensive side (I've had better for less money). Alternative is the lunch.
