I've been there for both dinner and a wedding reception and both times were great. The wine list is huge and the food is tasty to say the least. The ambiance is very classy and the guests and upscale so don't wear jeans.

This is an exquisite gem of a French restaurant. Small and intimate the perfect spot for a special evening. We chose the small plates and had an incredible meal of big tastes. Excellent service and atmosphere with pristine linen tablecloths and napkins. Wine selection is fantastic. The chef and the rest of the house really care about the customer and the food!

I went with some business associates on a Tuesday night. We didn't have reservations but they weren't busy and could easily accomodate us. Our server was very good. She managed to be there when we needed her but she was not intrusive.

Vincent is a great guy. He's like his food mellow without pretense and dedicated to making you happy. Vincent's isn't fancy French food, it is about the food the French eat. Sometimes at home, competent, swayed toward Alsace and it is what

Vincent A Resteraunt is definately three things: French, fancy & fun. If you can afford it this is a great spot to savor a meal. World class food combined with a very strong wine list combine to make this a resteraunt worth reckoning with. Located downtown accross from Orchestra Hall its location and accesability are an added bonus. Its lunch menu is definately more affordable than the dinner menu.
