This is a lovely restaurant; very romantic and perfect for a special occasion. However, our meal was a downer when I ordered coq au vin which was terribly dry. We won't be back.

My most recent visit was for a friend's milestone birthday - he booked the upstairs for a private party and were treated like royalty with attentive service - a delicious array of appetizers served cocktail-party style - frogs legs and canapes galore. Then we sat down and were offered some great options for salad and entree courses. I had one... More

First time at Vincent; will definitely go back. Waiter was Yann (Jann?), who turned a nice experience into a memorable experience. He was quietly and playfully helpful (and quietly irreverent) with his suggestions and ideas. Had us trying wine blind that was new to us. When asked which was better - the roasted onion or the scallops – he said... More

First, let me say that the food we had for lunch was delicious. The bread was served hot and was fabulous. My wife's butternut squash soup was wonderful. My salad was very flavorful. The fries were served hot, crispy and perfectly salty. The steak was cooked just as we ordered it and was seasoned beautifully. So what's to disappoint? The... More

Vincent has a wonderful menu, featuring local favorites and classic French brasserie fare. The atmosphere is great, as is the service. And the happy hour at the bar is always busy!

Vincent has a terrific Steak Salad on their lunch menu. The service is always prompt and polite and the lunch prices competitive.

We needed a good lunch within walking distance of our hotel, hassle free. Despite having made a reservation just in case, we had no trouble enjoying lunch at the bar. It was nice to just relax with an adult beverage and savor a (relatively) simple meal. I had the omelet of the day (with a nice, simply dressed side of... More

We went here to celebrate my daughter's 19th birthday. The restaurant was very busy and the atmosphere was upbeat and energetic. Our service was as perfect as possible. Every time my water glass was 1/4 empty it was refilled. My daughter's soda was kept topped off. I was quietly offered more wine when appropriate. All this - but in a... More

I made a reservation a month in advance so we'd be able to walk to a concert at nearby Orchestra Hall. We were seated at the entrance to the open kitchen and next to the coat closet. Our server was very "French," in a caricature of a French waiter negative way--brusque, supercilious. I ordered their classic hamburger, which was fine,... More
