For me Vintage in St. James is the best restaurant on Long Island. The food and the service are at the level of the Palm in New York City. The only difference to me being that the baked potatoes are slightly smaller. The steaks are beautifully aged and charred. The shellfish towers contain whole lobsters and big fat crustaceans, the...

Nice atmosphere, attentive service, Janus great host & delicious cocktails from Erica at the bar. Best steaks & a la carte sides as well as appetizers. Much better & more consistent than the big & flashy Insignia. They take great care of customers. One of my favs!!

A client/friend wanted to thank me for a favor I did them and offered steak. Well I am first and foremost a foodie and of all my preferences, steak is my number 1 preference. I've eaten in my fair share of steakhouse throughout the continental US and looked forward to the opportunity to try Vintage. To say I was displeased... More

Probably never would have went if it wasn't for a gift certificate that I was given. We weren't the only party that had reservations but still had to wait over a half hour for our table. When our meal was completed we were watched over by an impatient host even as we were finishing our wine and Irish Coffee. The... More

I've been to a lot of great restaurants, especially now that I travel all over the country. The Vintage Steakhouse is in my home town and I have visited 4 times in the past 10 years or so. I have to say that the meat is memorable. Great steaks, chops, creamed spinach and seafood. However, the reason I am averaging... More

We've eaten here many times and we always walk away satisfied. We have never had a bad meal. The steaks are prepared properly and are served the way they are supposed to. Sides are good as are the deserts. Be prepared to pay but you will not feel cheated. You come here for steak. If you want chicken, go to... More
