I have yet to have a bad experience at this restaurant. The food service and atmosphere is always great. The lemon chicken, old clothes, and the pear salad are al de-lux. The consensus with my wife and I are that they have the best sangria outside of Spain, and the best mojito's in town.

Stopped in for a late lunch on a blustery Valentine's day. One sip of our Mojitos along with the Cuban music made us feel like we were on vacation. Way too much food for lunch, had to take half home. We had the pollo al limon (lemon chicken) and Gratinado del Chef (seafood gratin wrapped in puff pastry). Both were... More

Great tasteful food. I recommend you to visit while you're staying up there. Prices are not too bad and they have hispanic people working there as well for those who like to order in spanish.

We had an excellent meal at Vincent's. We will definitely be back. The food and atmosphere is well worth the price. With the Cuban music in the background you will feel like your on vacation.

We had a good dinner here on a Tuesday night - good service and a good selection of small plates. My least favorite item was the chorizo small plate = it was too salty for my taste. The goat cheese and empanada plates were excellent. Would like to return and try more on the menu. Very easy access to the... More

The staff was awesome and can help a large group with the ordering. Did not feel rushed and most of us arrived at 5pm. They were a bit on the pricey side but the food portions were adequate. The vegetarian appetizer was a little too spicy for my sister but I gladly ate the rest of it for her (smile).... More

Not sure what the fascination is with Cuban food. Having been to Cuba, Cuban cuisine is not very good. Vincente's is just a restaurant using the guise of serving Cuban food. The food is fine, the service was fine. But it was just fine. Nothing special. Felt very rushed as well.

Vincente is one of my top restaurants in detroit. The waiters are awesome and can help a large group with the ordering. They are a bit on the pricey side but the food portions are humongous. Most of my colleagues could not go through their portions. The lamb shanks are huge and delicious, i could almost walk out with one... More

My son chose Vicente's to celebrate his seventeenth birthday. Good taste runs in his beautiful mothers family. We have been here many times and the food and staff have performed consistently well. To my good friend EdZ.....plenty of Sangria available during our visit and I look forward to sharing a pitcher you!
