“Wonderful restaurant to try new things!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

You don't have to commit to just one entree/side at this restaurant. It was fun to share many different small bites and experiment without it costing too much. The only downside is their noise level which makes it very difficult to carry on a conversation.

“Unique and Original dishes with great wine selection”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This place is wonderful. We used to go to the "mother" restaurant, the Federal in MA but now only go to Vinted. The food is amazing and the dishes are the perfect size to try lots of things. We have gone with groups and passed the plates around the table for hours as well as sat at the bar many times and had a quite meal. This place won't disappoint. The staff and bartenders are very knowledgable and the wine selection is superb. You have to try the pork belly tacos. Everything is so well prepared and different from anything else around west Hartford.

“Best Food in West Hartford”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Our family eats here often, and we have frequented just about every other restaurant in West Hartford and the surrounding towns. The food at VINTED is fantastic. It is creative and very flavorful. It is simply the very best food in the area.

Vinted is a fantastic wine bar. The food is creative, delicious and reasonably priced. The service is friendly. I have been to Vinted at least 10 times and the food and service have been consistently stellar.

“Seriously disappointing ”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I went to Vinted two weeks ago. We heard good things about it the food, mostly from printed reviews, and we eager to try it. We live in the West Hartford area and go to their restaurants regularly. Upon entering, we felt the place was cold and lacked room. We were greeted by a waitress who described their "concept" of high quality wines and small plates. The waitress kept emphasizing how all of the portions (even the larger ones) were small. She seemed slightly disappointed when we ordered a bottle of wine instead of ordering smaller tastings of wine (1 oz., 3 oz., etc.). We assumed this was because the tastings are more expensive. In any case, we ordered a $34.00 bottle of white wine that we planned to have with food. She brought the wine and opened the bottle for us to taste and it was warm! This was white wine. After my fiancé was surprised to find this, she responded by saying, "this is how it comes". Things went from bad to worse when she told us she would get a chiller and it would be cold in "5 minutes". We were skeptical but she did not offer any other solutions. After about 15 minutes went by, the wine was still warm. We brought it to her attention and she became bothered. She said that she needed to talk to her manager about it in order to see how we could resolve the issue. Who knew it was an issue to get chilled wine? We wasted more time and became increasingly frustrated with the poor service. Finally we were presented with a new bottle that was chilled slightly. She encouraged us to try more of the warm bottle before she opened the new one, because the restaurant was certain that it was served at the right temperature. Needless to say, we were completely turned off by this experience. Our waitress had the nerve to ask us several times if we should put our food order in. We had nothing to drink with us! We declined, paid our bill and will never return again!! Vinted seems to be concerned about making money and could care less about making the experience pleasant for its customers. Terrible!!
