Their food was very good and their service was excellent! The desserts were to die for. We will definitely come back as soon as possible.

We go here for special occasions. Extensive wine list. Freshly made pastas and only the freshest seafood. The lemon chicken is wonderful, so is the grouper (when available), and the pesto gnocci is some of the best I've had. When Manuel is around, he's friendly and loves to chat with guests. Servers are professional and knowledgable. The setting is intimate and cozy. Make reservations if you want to go - I've seen people turned away almost every time I've been there because they were booked.
Also, please be considerate of the other patrons and the establishment and wear something nice. I know it's Florida and it's hot outside, but men shouldn't wear ball caps and shorts to a place of this caliber. A suit is not at all required, but it's a "white table cloth" type of place with all the formalities, so it's just nice when the patrons dress accordingly. It makes it more fun for everyone :)

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner here with my girlfriend on June 12. The food was spectacular, especially the Gnocchi Daniela and the Macadamia Chicken. We had a bottle of Francis Coppola Chardonnay that was delicious and smooth as well. Our server, Ray, was fantastic, very attentive to our needs, and very informative regarding the food and wine selections. He also graciously took a picture of us in front of the restaurant at the end of our meal. So great to find such a fine establishment here in Gainesville. We will be back!!

A friend and I went here on Thursday night before Memorial Day. We did not have a reservation, but they seated us right away. This place is charming...as in, tiny, but very nice atmosphere. Extensive wine list, most were on the expensive side, but we got a nice bottle for about $50. We had snails in garlic which were good. Not chewy, lots of butter and garlic. We shared a salad which we'd asked for the gorgonzola to be switched to goat cheese, which they did. We also shared a big plate of penne with mushroom cream sauce, yummy and a plate of grilled veggies. Manuel came by our table to see how everything was and was very nice. Would recommend this restaurant. No outdoor seating that I saw.

Such a delight to eat at Manuel's Vintage Room. Cozy atmosphere, great food, wine and service. Manual is attentive and pays attention to the little details. Perfect place for a romantic meal with someone special or a great place to gather with good friends that enjoy great food.
