“No comparison to what else is around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

To me, this area of Florida is seriously lacking in high quality restaurants. I realize the economy of the populaiton density make it harder, but Vintage on 5th is one place that has made it work. The food is great, appetizing, visually appealing and not run of the mill. There is a good wine list and the service was great. Not a lot more to ask for. Unforunately, it wasn't really warm enough to enjoy the meal outside, which would have made this an even better meal.

“Wine and Appetizers on the Porch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

If you've had enough fried seafood and beer, and are looking for a great selection of wine, find this place in Crystal River. It is unique for the area, very polite service, historic building, great bar, and again, good wines. We had no reservation, and they sat us on the porch. Some people would not like being the only ones on a porch, but it was a lovely evening and we had had enough of crowds for the day. The owners went out of their way to say goodbye and wish us well. Appetizers, including soup du jour, jerk shrimp and escargot, were excellent and we did not need to order entrees. So glad we found this restaurant!

“Eat at the bar....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

I like eating at a large well run bar. It seems like more a southern thing and many times if reservations are difficult to get on a given night, you can find a comfortable place to eat and chat with other travelers. A good wine list and interesting people in a small gulf town is what Vintage provides. I had the duck breast and the chef provides a different sauce every night; wife had the tortellini and both were excellent. I don't think you will be disappointed wherever you sit.

“THE best service, food & atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

What an amazing experience we had at this incredible restaurant!!! Any time my husband and/or family go out to dinner, it seems that either the service, food and/or atmosphere are lacking. Not the case here! We received top-notch service, the type we don't find in most places, even here on our "upscale" island. Troy was an amazing waiter; very attentive, without being overbearing. That's a difficult balance, but he is a true professional! There was another waiter that I spoke with, as well, who was equally as professional. I believe his name was Michael. Thank you all for making our first meal out, while visiting Crystal River, so memorable! If you are looking for superb service, excellent food/nice portions & a unique and fun/cozy atmosphere....look no further! We cannot wait to return to the area and enjoy this fine restaurant again! The #1 place to dine in Crystal River!!
