Vicente's Cuban cuisine definitely lived up to the great reviews I had read before going. If you plan on going on a Friday or Saturday night, you should make reservations because the restaurant gets pretty full. The food and drinks are great (for food, I recommend the empandas and the lobster bisque). If you come for the salsa dancing (which... More

Went here for lunch with some friends and everyone's meals looked delicious. I especially liked my Gratinado del chef. Everything about it was great down to the zucchini and carrot side. I loved the big pieces of mushroom, shrimp and scallops. We sampled most of the mojitos and they were all great. Not my favorite but very close. I love... More

Our Reservations was for 5:30 but we showed up 15 minutes late so I can not blame the restaurant for us missing the first 25 minutes of the Lion King. At first we were sat at large round table that butted up against the bar that... More

Been wanting to come here for some time now but it just hasn't worked out. Definitely worth the wait! The food was authentic and the service was exceptional! Stop by after 7 if you want to hear some live music or even do some dancing....

Food was good, decor was great, good service. Only wish I'd known they had live music later in the evening (we might have gone a different time)!

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

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.
