Food and drinks were DELICIOUS!
Our server Tommy, was one of the best servers I’ve have had in quite some time. He even engaged my 92 year old dad, which is not an easy feat. I made sure to let the manager know how great he was.
As usual, the serving sizes were very generous, my sister and I split a meal and even had leftovers.
It was loud… but that is expected.

Highly recommend!

We had a bit of a wait -about 40 minutes for a table outside even though we had a reservation which is to be expected. However, once we were seated it was about another 30 minutes before our waiter took our order. He was pretty scarce throughout the meal, but other than the service, the food was excellent! I had the zucchini pasta with shrimp oreganato. It was amazing as was the brownie sundae for dessert!

It was our second visit and Vincent's did not disappoint once again! We ordered different dishes on the menu than the first time and it was just as good! Prices are fair as well, considering their location. Would definitely recommend and will return in the future!

Very loud inside. Even though we had a reservation we were still waiting for 30 minutes. The food wasn’t as good as I expected. a lot of sauce and not enough actual pasta. Also, very garlicky. The portions were great though and the dessert (brownie sundae) was very delicious. Staff inside were very helpful and quick!

We dined on a Saturday night. Time management at reservation is poor. We had a 6:30p reservation but didn't get a table till it's after 7p. The portion of the food is very generous, which is why almost everyone needs to take the leftover home. The seafood are really good and well worth it. The place is so noisy that talking to people across the table requires shouting.

Excellent service and good food. Definitely feel rushed thru your meal. Italian restaurant with a marinara sauce that is not really very good is not the best of situations

7/11/21- party of 4. Very casual atmosphere. Staff was plentiful - Very kind and enthusiastic. Never once had to ask for anything twice and was seated on time in a packed dining area. Old time Italian music playing along with some Billy Joel favorites. Orders were placed and appetizers were out immediately. All of our choices were great and take home plates were given. Our waiter Nick was A+!! Would recommend and would go again

Food is great - service is outstanding -overcrowded. Despite 7:30 pm reservation on Wednesday evening , had to wait 1/2 hour outside in the heat. Dining room extremely noisy (contributed to by loud audio). Outstanding food, poor on ability to hold conversation

This was my first time at Vincent’s and I loved it. We were seated very closed to the entrance and the noise was still high (music and people chatting at their tables) but overall a very nice ambiance.

The whole meal was extremely rushed. The waiter must have checked in 100 times and they kept trying to clear our table as we were eating. I don’t think we’ll ever return and we’ve been going to Vincent’s for over 20 years!

We went for my husband and my brother's 50th Birthdays. We had a great time. The food was great, the value and quality were all great. We hadn't been here in years, due to moving further away. It was well worth the trip back. I actually didn't like how close the tables were in the past with noise and we felt on top of other people. Many Italian restaurants have this style. Now, however, due to the plexiglass from COVID...it is much better. I am not scared of COVID, I just like how it feels less on top of each other now. I also think it helps to cut down on the noise.
