Great food, one of the best meals we had in Detroit. The service was also very good and despite the restaurant being very busy we often felt that we were the only patrons.

A friend and I visit recently. I absolutely love this place. The food and service are outstanding. There is metered parking nearby and a parking structure a block away.

We went to Vincente's on a Saturday night for my birthday. I wanted to participate in the Salsa dancing lesson at 10:00. It was an amazing evening! The food was delicious. The mojitos were spot-on and birthday cake was delightful! Vincente's is a wonderful change of pace from the chain restaurants that speckle the mid-west. I highly recommend a visit... More
