“Chef's Choice Didn't Disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We try to do a tasting menu whenever possible, especially where the chef is so highly regarded. This was our first visit to Vincent. We arrived early because we had symphony tickets and we had the place to ourselves for most of our meal, which was a little weird. The atmosphere was old school, fine dining elegance. We tasted 10 dishes with wine pairings and had a lot of fun with Howie our waiter - also the wine director - talking about AZ wines, trips to France and Vincent's extensive wine cellar. He spoiled us with some very special wines. Every dish was beautifully prepared and perfectly seasoned. We started with a smoked salmon quesadilla with horseradish cream; then a trio of chilled yellow, green and red heirloom tomato soup; Radicchio and endive salad with citrus vinaigrette; curly endive with poached egg, bacon and mustard dressing; Atlantic halibut with roasted vegetables and chipotle beurre blanc; sautéed veal tenderloin with tarragon sauce; sautéed beef tenderloin with green peppercorn sauce; fresh apricot tart; warm chocolate tart; and pot de crème. Favorites were the quesadilla, tomato soup, halibut (super flaky and tender) and pot de crème. Consider Vincent on Camelback for a special occasion - or just a really nice, non-trendy night out.

“Bon appetit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

If you are looking for a special dining experience, look no further. Chef Vincent Guerithault is from Provence, France, and combines his expertise in classic French cooking with southwestern ingredients making for unique...and exceptionally delicious offerings. From the moment you walk in the door, you know right away you are somewhere special - and you are treated like someone special. The staff is very attentive, yet almost invisible. The menu changes according to season and availability of fresh ingredients - but one thing you can take to the bank - whatever you select, it will be delicious. Bon appetite!

“Overwhelming, but lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

A lovely space, wonderful and attentive service, interesting and inventive food. There is too much on the plates, and perhaps more flavours than is absolutely necessary. But this is Swiss cuisine with a flair, and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert was heaven. Stunning wine list, bien sur.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The service was amazing, but the food was very average. Fantastic salad, but the seafood was extremely fishy and tasted like it was prepared from frozen. It actually made me sick to my stomach. They brought me out a palate cleanser and free desert and did not charge me for the entree. Ruined our romantic evening. However, the cafe attached is 5 stars on value, food, and service. The croissants are addictive!
