Disappointment! save your money! – False advertise! no stars! False Sauce! I've been in Vincent's Restaurant recently after generations my families enjoyed the quality of the food and original sauce. Now they should take the signs off of the Restaurant.
Pay by Credit Card!! – As I always savoured the Italian Bait Plate Special of Scungelli,Calimari,Mussels and Clams with thier signature HOT marinara sause,Vincent's used to be one of my favorite restaurants . As the years progressed and the popularity of the place increased not because of the quality of the the fare but the quantity . This may have been what was resposible for making it popular and crowed and thus turning it into a factory atmosphere churnning out meals that are nothing but mediocre.
My recent visit I was very dissapointed with both the food and the service. I had my usual calimari parmigiana and my spouse had the eggplant. Underneath the warm tomato sause and the melted chese the rest of the food was cold. After the meal was completed the server broaght the check and I paid him in cash. He asked if I wanted any change and I said no thank you and he replied thank you very much. Me and the wife put on our coats and headed for the Door. As we exited the waiter came running after us asking us if we forgot to pay the check or more or less insinuating that we were trying to play dine and dash. We were asked to pay again until they reconcile their reciepts. Since I knew I handed the money to the waiter and know they have survailence cameras we told them to go to the video tape. After about 20 minutes they came back and stated that the tape did not indicate that I paid the check. We were denied to view the tape ourselves which I felt was not fair. Under duress I gave them my credit card to pay the check. As they were processing the card all of a sudden the waiter comes running over to say they without any explanation that thy found the money. They did give me the money back for the inconveinence. Maybe if this place wasn't such a zoo the service and quality would go back to the way it was in the past. I don't write these reviews to be critical. I write them to provoke change for the better.
I think it's one of the best Italian restaurants – We have been going for years & it is always a pleasure. The meatballs are wonderful. Just like grandma made.
Nice variety. The atmosphere is a little campy but, I'm ok with it. LOVE the desserts. A good night out. family portions too.
Don't waste your time – Vincent's is one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to. If you are looking for authentic Italian food, then look elsewhere. Their sauces are awful and taste like Prego or some other mass produced jarred sauce. I can't specify what else was wrong with the food because everything was wrong. It just simply isn't good and I cannot understand how anyone could like it. If you want real Italian food then do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. If you don't mind Prego sauce and like americanized "italian" food then you can try Vincent's.
Huge portions, good service – Good place for casual eating. Wait staff is attentive and the portions are plentiful! The taste is more "Americanized", as the sauces are a little sweeter than I would like, but the quality is pretty good. Overall, a good selection for the price and environment (not TOO noisy and clean).
Great Food! – I went there with my boyfriend, and they food was absolutely delicious. The prices were decent, and so were the portions. We also tried their tiramisu, and we weren't able to finish it because of the huge portions. The only bad thing is that it took a while for us to be seated.
