First time visit this week. Will definitely try to stop by again when in town. I tried the arroz con pollo to see how they did with the classics. They killed it. Really enjoyed it. Nice decor and very good service. Everyone else enjoyed their meals.

Always good. Great sangria, I like the red and white mixed. Has become a Saturday lunch ritual after a stop at Eastern Market.

This place is full of ambiance. The food is not as good as it was when the old lady was cooking but is still extremely good food. We went on their dance lesson day and it was fun,light and humorous entertainment.

I have been a customer of Vicente's since they opened. They serve great food and have a very friendly and attentive staff. I have been to Miami several times and visited several of it's Cuban restaurants. Vicente's in on par with them.

I ordered the pernil and it was tasteless. Servers are friendly and ambiance is nice. However my friend ordered the cazuela de marisco and loved it.

Thank Julie D
