Most of the recent reviews are accurate. The word pricey comes up often . This week its restaurant week so they have a menu that may be more economical for many. The main menu offers few choices if you are worried about your wallet. The atmosphere and food are very good while service is also good ,however the bread basket... More

Good food and nice bar. A little pricey on bar food. Good staff and we enjoy the atmosphere there. I believe a change was made in bar staff and it was to the good. RC

Celebrated a friend's birthaday at the Vintage Tavern and was very impressed. The atomosphere, service, and food was outstanding. The chef even came over to our table to introduce himself and asked how we liked our dinner. Our waiter, Andy, was excellent. We never had to ask for anything. Although a liitle pricey, it was worth every penny. I was... More

We dinned at the Vintage Tavern last night. We saw the signs advertising it at the Homarama and called. We could not get a reservation for the main dining room but were able to get into the tavern. The ambiance of the tavern was very nice. We ordered the backed oyster special and the Butternut Salad for appetizers and then... More

Have not been here since 2010 and was disappointed. Food was average and not hot when brought out. The presentation was nice but portions were small. The pear and beet salad had five large slices of pear but just a few pieces of beet and seven (I counted) greens on bottom. Just was not what I was expecting. Crab cakes... More

We celebrated a birthday meal at the Vintage Tavern. We all had a very nice meal. Everyone ordered something different and everyone was pleased with his selection. The service was great as well as the atmosphere.

Looking for an early supper last Friday night and we found ourselves at the Vintage Tavern. This place never disappoints. The food is consistently creative and delicious; the atmosphere in the bar is light and fun; and the service is the best anywhere! Whether you're looking for a special place to go celebrate in fine fashion and a lovely dining... More

Made reservations thru Open Table and received the dining experience that I had expected. We were welcomed and escorted to the patio where we ordered a bottle of my favorite Pinot Noir. Then we were seated, given menus and explanation of the daily specials. We ordered an appetizer recommended by our server. Ordered the salads and entrees from the menu... More
