Finally tried Vicente's after it had previously been recommended. It was excellent! We had drinks, appetizers and dinner. Bloody Marys and Santa Clara Margarita were very good. We tried 3 different appetizers as recommended by our server Jamie. All were good. 2 of us shared the Paella Cubano and it was excellent! Another had a steak dish that was good.... More

Lunch on Wednesday afternoon with a friend. Had the best Cuban Sandwich, Yuca fries and house salad with avocado! Yummy! The atmosphere is charming, the restaurant is colorful and clean, the waitstaff delightful, the chef is amazing.

Our family ate here on a recent Saturday night and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is good. Empanadas were great! Drinks were flavorful and strong. Service was very good and the food is fantastic. Can't wait to eat here again!

Great sangria, fun atmosphere and wonderful paella. Vicente's is a good location for group dinners or a date night.

We love Vicente's! Our go-to is the Sangria- which you have the option of mixed (white and red) or one or the other. We've had all three options and it does not disappoint. Paella is also a favorite. You cannot go wrong with any of their paella selections. We've also had their bacon wrapped jalapeno (appetizer) which was delicious, as... More

Vicente's has amazing cuisine and service. We ate here prior to seeing a show at the Fox, and we had a 5-star meal with plenty of time leftover to get us to the show on time. First - the cocktails: they are known for their mojitos and sangria, and there is a reason. Wonderful! We started with the meatballs. Delicious.... More

We were thrilled to find a great Cuban restaurant here in Michigan! It's just a short walk from one of the People Mover stations. You can see it from the stop. All of the food that we had was great, and the portions generous. The two of us that ordered the Ropa Vieja left with doggy bags. The trout was... More

My fiancé brought me here for my birthday because I really wanted to come back but it's a little pricey. (I had been before with a friend.) The sangria is really good - get the pitcher. The paella is a must-get dish here and even for two people you get such a generous portion that we had leftovers for another... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant in the city. I love the food here, have only been for lunch. I know they have salsa dancing at night, at least on the weekends. Also there is a cute patio for the warmer months.

Went here for dinner with my wife. Had a great dinner and great service. Food was fresh and cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this place. Had dinner and a nice walk downtown. I give this place a big thumbs up.
