Classic highbrow French

Vincent is very good at being very French. That's a plus for its many dishes with delicate and complex sauces and seasonings that complement but don't overwhelm underlying foods. But it can be a bit of a minus in terms of its literal and figurative white tablecloth décor and atmosphere; that is... read more

First our menu: Cocktails Appetizers—escargots / scallops Wine Entrees—duck breast / grilled pork chop Cheeses Desserts—Three Creams / walnut tart Coffee When we visit a city, we like to have one upscale dining experience, and Vincent—A Restaurant was our choice for our trip to Minneapolis. What an excellent choice it turned out to be! The host was friendly and welcoming,... More

What an amazing experience! We called and worked with Ann to get a table in the kitchen for our wedding dinner. Ann was simply amazing to work with, she was extremely knowledgable and offered great suggestions to help make this night one to remember. Not only was the experience in the kitchen one to remember but we were lucky enough... More

Still excellent after all these years. Menu choices are not huge but all done well. The spirit of the place is intact. There French style is intact although there are intrusions. The specials are what add to the interest. The duck breast is excellent as are the escargots and of course the desserts.

Great for lunch and dinner. Food is always excellent and service impeccable. The wine list is extensive and the staff knowledgeable. A lively atmosphere in the evening, and the space is lovely. Can't go wrong!

I've not had a anything I didn't love here. Just had my birthday dinner in Dec. and everything was delicious. I've eaten in the bar and the reastaurant and both were wonderful. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Love it.

Vincent is our first choice for celebrations. The latest visit was to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service was, as expected, top notch--just enough attention without hovering. Although I normally order the scallops as they are among my all time favorite dishes, I opted for the Sole with morels just because it sounded interesting. Frankly, the seasoning was a little...

We have been dining at Vincent’s Restaurant for a decade now and the food is always very good. The menu has changed over time, but certain staple items remain. La Belle Vie at its best may be better, but then their price is also much higher. We tried the 5 course prix fixe dinner for $60 on a Saturday; my... More

Located right across the Symphony Hall and the Target corporate HQ it offers a nice and warm dining room with open kitchen, a beautiful bar and lounge and in the summer outside seating. The menu is simple yet sophisticated with fresh ingredients,excellent preparation.... More

We went to Vincent very recently for a Brazilian Valentine's Day dinner and we had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding. Our table was perfect and quiet. And the food was very good. We opted for the tasting menu and enjoyed every course. They have mastered the timing of serving a tasting menu, which we clearly appreciated. The halibut... More
