Adds spice to life

Vicente's Cuban Cuisine knows its spices. The delicious tapas offer a wide palette of spices and cooking techniques. We had the Vegetarian tapa with pan-fried vegetables cooked just right, as well as the House special (seafood and chorizo). Two dishes could not have been further apart -- however... read more

I went to Vicente's for dinner on Monday night arriving about 8:30pm. I was lucky enough to find a parking space out front. Sometimes you get a feeling write from the jump that perhaps the restaurant goddess is not with you and I had that feeling after the hostess attempted to seat me at a two person table by the...

I've wanted to go here for years and finally did so recently. It's just what it should be: relaxed, casual, where you can feel you can be yourself. Two of our party had a seafood-stuffed pastry dish that I've never seen before, but looked awesome. One had a fried pear salad with Manchego cheese that also looked great. I had... More

I came here with a close friend of mine on a Saturday. We ate at the bar since they were full from reservations. They offer Salsa dancing at 10PM. We had three tapas: pollo aioli (just ok), seafood special (4 stars), goat cheese & tomatos (5 stars). The sangria is good too. Overall, it was a cute place, busy, but... More

Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at a recent dinner before a Red Wings game. The tapas were delicious and served up quick to share. The Churrasco con Chimichurri was done just right and delicious, as was the Salmon a la Parrilla. They had live music on a Wednesday evening. Located on Library Street, it is a very short walk...

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.
