“A Wonderful Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Last night, we celebrated our Anniversary at Vintage on 5th; the experience exceeded our heartfelt expectations for a special evening. The appetizers (jerk shrimp, pork belly), the wine (house recommended Riesling), dinner (shrimp & grits, grouper), and dessert (creme brulee) were wonderfully prepared/spiced and served. Our waiter, Michael, was a true gentleman. The hostess was very personable. The restaurant is housed in a lovely, old Florida style home and the interior is dimly lit, beautifully furnished and created a romantic atmosphere. One of our best dining experiences; worth the one hour drive from our home. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“A lovely dinner”

Fresh scallops..beautiful presentation and good service. The dining room is charming and deserves real table linens rather than paper toppers.

“Always a joy to dine there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband and I like to spend out annivaersary here. The Tuna Seared is out very favorite, the dim lighting sets the mood and the service is great. I did call way ahead and reserve a table saying it was our anniversary and the hostess was going to seat us in the middle of everyone - since there was plenty of seating around I asked if we could have the cozy corner for two and she abiged, although seemed a little rattled at switching tables. We had yet ANOTHER great and romantic dinner.

“This is the definition of a great dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were in Crystal River to enjoy some dining and fishing. We thought it might be hard to a good dining experience in such a small town. We read the comments on trip advisor and decided to try this restaurant. Our expectations were exceeded. From the moment we walked through the door, the staff was genuinely warm and friendly. The atmosphere was so comfortable and relaxing. The food exceptional! The descriptions on the menu were so vivid, we had a really difficult time choosing. Once we made our selection, we were thoroughly pleased. I can definately see why this was voted number one in this area.
We highly recommend this spot.

“Gone to Heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

From start to finish, this was one of best dining experiences we've had in a long time! The service was SUPERB! Troy was a joy to have as a server! He took care of our needs and we never needed a thing! Not only did we receive the best service possible, but it was wonderful to dine on their pet-friendly patio with such an amazing menu. Our pooch was welcomed with a fresh water bowl and a smile. Delicious grouper and beef tenderloin entrees were paired with just as an impressive wine list. To finish it off, Rodney the owner, was kind enough to stop by, say hello, pet our puppy, and ensure that our stay was enjoyable. If you visit the Crystal River area, you MUST plan a stop at "Vintage" for an amazing dining experience!
