one of my favorite restaurants

Love to sit in the lounge and enjoy a nice bottle of wine with some of their fine appetizers. The Ahi Tuna is fabulous and the nice hot bread goes perfect with the wine.

We been here often and both the quality and service tend to be hit and miss. Things to know...this is a classic menu so don't look for a lot of innovation in the menu. Lunch is average. The good thing is lunch tends to be very quiet so it's good for a business meeting. My favorite part of the restaurant... More

The whole roasted chile as an appetizer was very good. Restaurant looked very nice. However the penne pasta were not al dente, it was like industrial pasta and the whole thing tasted a bit weird, it wasn't really balanced. Too bitter from the eggplant, too oily. It needed more seasoning : salt, herbs, pepper.

We had a family celebration at the Vintage Press, and as many other times in the past, the choice was excellent. The food was simple (a chicken in a phyllo dough with vegetables) but very good and nicely presented; the private room clean and ready, the service great. Compliments to our chef David!

The reviews on this restaurant are quite mixed, but some expensive cars out front pushed me to overcome my doubts and give it a try. The interior is quite warm, old-fashioned yet aiming toward elegant. The initial service was polite and expeditious. I ordered two specials: an appetizer of mixed mollusks and prawns and the rack of lamb. A salad... More
