Food was ok, but not worth the aggravation of getting in. The wait was over 30 mins. I've never waited 30 mins past a reservation time before. Got there at 6:50 for a 7pm reservation. Was seated after 7:30. They clearly overbook their reservations.

They clear out the inside of the restaurant of people waiting because of covid, and instead there's dozens of people outside by the front door, so you have to walk through the gauntlet to check in and then to be seated when they finally call you. Very disorganized.

Vincent’s is excellent. Definitely loud and fast moving but as long as you know that it is super enjoyable. Felt very covid safe with great dividers between tables. Food is outstanding and it is just a lot of fun!

As always, the food was excellent at Vincent's. Why we were disappointed was the fact that the restaurant was completely packed. It was the first time my parents (76 & 78 years old) have been out to dinner since my Dad had a stroke in December. I made an early reservation, a 5pm seating, thinking this would be a better time to go before the restaurant became too crowded. We were shocked that the restaurant was not following protocols and was at 100% capacity.

We were running late and we had to called twice to push the time. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. The waiter is personable and responsive. Mom did not like her Shrimp balls. She reported they were very doughy. At the end of the evening we noted it was removed from the check.

Been going to Vincent’s for about 30 treats, never had a bad meal, since my kids were born we always go to Vincent’s in their actual birthday, began with going to toys r us and then Vincent’s, they are older now and toys r us is gone but Vincent’s is still ticking and the food is and good as ever, service is awesome, one of the hostesses graduate HS with my oldest and she treated us lilies royalty. Regardless, this place is always awesome, the steamed calamari parmigiana with rigatoni and medium sauce is my go to.

This is our go to place....Food is always amazing, a little loud but thats just part of the experience. The bread and oil are amazing, always get a few loaves and then are full by the time the entree comes. A little rushed this time around due to the time constraints of covid but still worth it. Hope to go back soon!!!

Pasta was way under cooked and was cold. Server visit the table like 4 times. Which Including bring out food, give us our check. Never came and sakes if everything is ok, even though another person brought the food out.

Huge menu with just about everything under the sun. Great quality, tasty food. Very busy place, so a reservation MUST be made. You just can't hope to show up and get in, even if you are early. Shrimp dishes were wonderful. Servers were very busy but did not forget about you. Baked clams were superb. Wasn't crazy about mini shrimp balls. Everything else was delish.
