We were celebrating a birthday and wanted someplace special and this is definitely a location which fulfilled that desire. The food (filet) was delicious and cooked to our request medium rare. Service is attentive but allows time to talk and eat each entree. Desert was a chocolate wonder with fresh berries and homemade cream whipped. Location has parking and is... More

The Vintage is a restaurant in a train. Neat idea and stirs memories of people and days gone by. However, (we have eaten here before on a previous trip) we were seated for lunch in one of the trains cars in a booth. The decor is starting to look a little tired and the outside patio was unkept. The food,... More

A nice lunch location for a holiday office party. Had the $13.95 lunch, mesquite grilled sirloin. Won't be eating dinner tonight. Nice, eight ounce steak with salad, vegetables and bread. Quite tasty. Ambiance is nice with enjoyable music in the background and the occasional train passing by. Attentive staff kept the beverage glasses filled and dishes bussed. Look forward to... More

The Vintage is very good but avoid buying a Groupon, Social Living, TravelZoo or any other discount coupon for this restaurant. I've enjoyed the Vintage in the past as I will again but I will not purchase a Groupon, LivingSocial or any other discount coupon for dinner there again. I'm always suspicious of a restaurant that has a separate menu... More

I loved eating here with my Dad. it was delicious and fun to enjoy. The server was very amiable and it was great being able to enjoy the atmosphere of the location. I'm happy we tried something new and this was a great place to do so!

My wife and I were here using a Travelzoo certificate for a four course meal for two. Having never been here before, these promotions are a great way for restaurants to get new people in. Todd was our waiter....he recommended the goat cheese/tomato appetizer to start off which was very good, although only two servings on the plate....one would think... More

So, the service is okay. Now if they could figure out how to get the food to match the service, they would be set. I went in for dinner because I had a deal for a 4 course dinner (and now I can see how they might be struggling and trying to pull in some business). The vintage train car... More

Vintage train cars to dine in set the mood at this very distinctive restaurant. Prices are moderate, and the menu is very clever. They can accommodate large groups as well as intimate dinners without mixing the 2 group types together. I look forward to my quick return to a lovely restaurant.

We used a coupon which one would think would make things somewhat affordable. But it just seems like the prices are about double what one would expect so it still makes for an expensive night with tip based on inflated prices. A lot of people use the coupon I think which is why I was surprised that the appetizers were... More
