This nice restaurant named after the chef and part owner Vincent Francoual is always a safe bet. 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.

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

This was such a beautiful venue after our night at the MN Orchestra. We thought we would stop at their sidewalk dining for a nice dessert and glass of wine to cap off the night. As the waitress informed us of Vincent's specials not on the menu, she had Vincent himself, weigh in on our decision from a table nearby... 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

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 sauce was good. Service was slow, and the wait... 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
