Delicious and Reasonably-priced "Prix Fixe Lunch"

My wife and I recently had lunch at Vincent's after a Minnesota Orchestra coffee concert. Besides the regular menu, they have a "Prix Fixe Lunch" (offered Monday-Friday) consisting of a two course lunch @ $13.50 per person. My wife ordered the Arugula Salad and Chef's Choice Cheese while I... read more

They have a nice happy hour. Good prices on drinks and appetizers. Comfortable seating and a friendly waitress made for a nice time.

Vincent A was recommended by some co-workers - whom I do not know well. However, as they are residents of Minneapolis and I am not, I figured they'd have some good insight. Uh, wrong answer. Environmentally, the place is lovely and nice with the whole white linen napkin thing going on. The servers have french accents and look very European.... More

A few years ago this use to be one of my favorite restaurants. But don't bother. The Steak on the Steak Fritts menu was absolutely awful. One of us had the Ribeye. It was the thinnest piece of steak I have ever seen. Bland, no flavor. The "fritts" were pretty good, though. The salad that we shared was ho hum.... More

Vincent's was on one of the top restaurants to try list so we were excited to try it. Unfortunately the food was pretty good, but the service was really poor. Our server seemed to disappear for long periods of time and was very distracted even though it was not busy. When he did come around, he was pretentious and not... More

Was looking for an amazing burger. A food critic listed this place as having the best burger in the city. Upon arrival, service at the bar felt a bit forced, no greeting, a bit pretentious. After a bit of conversation with server, he began to warm up and then completely changed his tone. The service was average at best. The... More

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
