Well, after coming here for so many times I'm still happy with the food and service, top service from Trent, and Justine at the bar, they sure can make drinks for any mood or desire, and Melinda on the dining floor always make sure we never ran out of water and wine, over all great service and food. I totally... More

What a treat to find in a small town. Loved all of it. Staff was very attentive. Loved the escargot ! Had a steak husband had scallops both were very good. Chocolate mousse was delicious too. Yes it's dark and older but that's the appeal. Really enjoyed it. Would go back if in the area.

The VP is the place to eat in Visalia and has been for more than 20 years and not much has changed in that time. The plusses: friendly and efficient wait staff, great dessert, and generous wine pours. The negative: salads and main dishes were average- large portions, but flavors were bland. My pasta was floating in cream sauce and... More

I ate dinner outdoors on the patio. Everyone else ate indoors, I guess they thought it too warm (85). Excellent venue. Fine presentation, great food. I see why it is rated #1. It is expensive and a little heavy on the sauces, but an overall fine dining experience. I had 2 appetizers. Blackened shrimp. A little heavy on the spice... More

Great selection of standards and contemporary culinary entrees & desserts. The wine list is top notch and varied - reads like a book! The lounge is classic - and the bar & full... More

The Vintage Press is probably the most upscale restaurant in Visalia and can hold it's own in it's class in any larger city. Being in a small town I thought the staff was friendlier than found in a larger city. The interior has lots of wood, brass and crystal reminiscent of a bygone era of class and distinction. The present... More

The "VP" as we locals call it is in my opinion our town's finest restaurant. Service, food and presentation are all excellent. The owner and chef, David, does a recipe club night once a month and we have become regulars because it is fun and delicious. For a fine night out this is the place to go.
