“Supposed to be best in town? Hopefully not.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We'd heard good things about this restaurant from friends and online, and my partner really wanted to try eating here on our trip. Unfortunately, it really didn't live up to the hype we'd heard. Unfortunate.

We were hoping for a beautiful birthday dinner for my partner outside under the stars, but the air conditioner propped in the window directly next to us was busy clanking away through most of our meal. The food wasn't very inspired/inspiring and really felt like it could be had anywhere, for much less money.

The restaurant also seemed very chaotic when we stopped in to make the reservation, and then again for dinner the following night. Both times we had to wait 10-15 minutes just to speak with someone.

I feel 3 stars is a little generous, but 2 starts is a little low so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and hope that others have a better experience than we did.

“Sun Valley's Best Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Every trip to Sun Valley includes dinner at the Vintage. The food is excellently prepared and presented, nice wine list, and the service is great. This time we had the Pecan Chicken a favorite of my husband's and the Filet with local cheese which was excellent. Everyone at the next table was raving on the Filet as well. It is a hard to see place, small cabin, easily missed. Don't! Make reservations in advance and enjoy!

“The Best Sun Valley Fine Dinning Resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

I have eaten her many times and never have I been disappointed. Make RSVP earlier as dates and times fill up rather quickly. Servers are always very familiar with menu and help make good recommendations. Sauces are very good and the duck is a house specialty. Everything is made in house. This is not a menu someone can reproduce at home. It is expensive, but worth every penny.

“Local flavors, expertly prepared”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This was our 3rd time at Vintage - Winter, Fall, now Summer - and every meal has been delicious.
At our table for 4 we loved the heirloom tomato appetizer, striped sea bass, rib-eye steak, lamb chops and all their accompanying sides. Local fresh veggies that aren't over cooked and are full of flavore--what's not to love?

Dessert of pecan balls, house-made vanilla bean ice-cream, and other delicious-sounding options can't be beat.

Though there is ample outdoor seating in the summer, we opted for indoors to ensure we weren't nibbled by mosquitos.

There are 2 seatings for dinner - reservations are a MUST.

“Quaint place, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

A very rustic cabin down to the tattered carpet. Food is very good with flavors and presentation like no other, very eclectic. It's small inside, so parties less than 4 do best. Everything is basic down to the chairs, utensils and even the stem ware. If you want a flavorful dining experience, go here but be prepared for everything else being very basic. We went on a Sunday night, and the place was full, so that tells ya! We had the ribeye (ok), the rack of lamb (very good) and the duck (excellent). Make reservations.
