Solid food, weak service

Vincent is a French restaurant in upscale modern space. The dinner salad is very large, the greens and dressing perfect. I had steak frites, the steak was very good, the frites quite average, but improved when dipped in the wonderful sauce Bernaise. My dessert of ice cream with a nice chocolate... read more

We had the most amazing dinner. Everything was cooked to perfection. The seasonings were used to truly enhance the dish, subtle and delectable. Excellent wine list and the service impeccable. Probably one of the most enjoying dining experiences we have ever had the pleasure of.

We were attending the orchestra across the street and chose this restaurant. Food was good. Service was terrible. After being shown to our table it took forever for someone to come and take our drink order. I will concede that our server had the knowledge but that was as far as it went. In fact, the entire wait staff looked... More

We Ordered menu items recommended or reviewed to be their best, but was disappointed. Steak Tartare was bland, Halibut dish also lacking flavor although the fish itself was good. Brussels sprouts cold and somewhat limp. Best was the Tenderloin and fries. Chocolate cake was maybe four bites. Service was rushed and uneven, not what you would expect for a $410... More

Oddly enough, I chose this restaurant because of raves I heard about the famous Vincent Burger. Crazy thing for a French restaurant, but there it was in all its glory -- ground beef stuffed with braised short ribs and gruyere cheese, served with a side of ketchup in a perfectly soft, pillowy bun. I have to say, it lived up... More

Full disclosure: I was working at a conference and desperately needed a break. I might have been happy anywhere--but not THIS happy. We started with Tanqueray martinis, up, with bleu cheese olives. They were perfect. Still in the bar, early, we had some spicy duck wings--without the gin, they may have been a bit too salty, but as an accompaniment?... More

Prix Fixe lunch is 13.50 for two courses. We subbed a salad for a dessert. Nice service. Great bread and butter.

Wanted to try out Vincent - A as we had heard good things. However our experience was quite different. The food was good, not great and definitely not worth the service we received. Our server would vanish for long periods of time and we weren't even able to put in the drink order till after about 45 minutes at the... More

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 ordered the Red Wine Braised Short Rib "Parmentier" and the Chocolate... More
