Less than average service, spendy, average entrees 1/30/2010

The soups at this aging French Restaurant are excellent, in contrast to the average beef tenderloin entree and a fair creme brulee for dessert. From the time we were seated, we were greeted with staff that were either less than enthusiastic or best described as aloof. The cocktail waiter offered no wine suggestions. We were told that they ran out of the lobster bisque, which appears on this online menu. The entrees were lukewarm. Pros: Soups Cons: Aloof Service, Poor value, average entrees more

Great experience! 1/3/2009

My wife and I wanted to have a good meal for our last night in town. On a TV program, Bobby Flay was enjoying a creation by Chef Vincent. The French/SouthWestern style was something that we had to try. We went early because we didn't have a reservation. I would recommend arriving before the rush which is 6pm. We were a little surprised that the tables didn't have salt or pepper on them. When the food arrived we realized that everything was seasoned perfectly. The slightly spicy lobster bisque was excellent. The entrees (braised lamb and braised short rib) were flavorful. The service was fantastic. One of our waiters, Mark from Orange County CA, recommended that we have some desserts. The desserts were over-the-top, GOOD... The lemon crepe with raspberry sauce was light and satisfying. The chocolate souffle was also very good. Chef Vincent was so cool too! It's nice when the owner/chef has the time to meet his customer's and even take a picture with them. Pros: Great experience, no drawbacks. more

Please ignore the negative reviews 12/29/2008

I am appalled by the overwhelmingly number of negative reviews to this restaurant. I am convinced that these people spend their time writing negative reviews that don't make sense and are not true because they find joy in writing lies or they lost their job in which case they would have nothing to do but write lies. Either way, it is a lie. The way that I know that they are liars is that I am a good friend of Vincent and I know for a FACT that the words written by past reviewers are simply not true. For example, JulieLev, wrote, Pros: Everything Cons: Nothing more

One of the worst dinners of my life 4/25/2008

I had heard that Vincent's had great food and was excited to eat my birthday dinner there with my husband. Yikes! What a horrible experience. Shall I start with the broken chair and dead mosquito on the table. Perhaps, I should mention that the pear salad that I ordered didn't have any pears in it. No, maybe I should let you know that the lobster was overcooked to the point that it tasted like jerkey. But wait, they brought out a horrible dessert to acknowledge that it was my birthday. Let's not forget the broken toilet in the ladies room. Oh, and yes I called to complain the next day, and didn't even receive a response back from the management, until I complained a second time. Then, I received a form letter from the owner's wife (my name was spelled incorrectly) with a thank you for eating at their restaurant. ....Not even an invitation to come try them again. What nerve. It's now a mission in my life to inform everyone about the horrible food/service/management at Vincent's. Don't waste your money or time in this past its prime establishment. Don't be fooled by the awards this restaurant has received. The owner is nowhere to be found. He's too busy trying to obtain publicity to manage and cook at his own restaurant. Pros: The butter and salt and pepper were outstanding Cons: Everything else more

Good food, bad service 3/5/2008

Okay, not all bad service, the bartender was pleasant and can make a good cocktail. I would know this because it took forever to be acknowledged by anyone else to get our table so we sat at the bar waiting. Pros: The food tells you why you are paying so much Cons: Service, Parking more

It's Just Not all That 1/11/2008

I was very disappointed when I learned Michael's at the Citadel closed--this had been our ""special occasion"" restaurant. So we tried Vincent's on Camelback for our anniversary dinner, and frankly we were disappointed. Although it was during the week and the restaurant was not crowded, we were stuck in a very dark back room which used to be a porch. It was freezing and we (and other couple seated near us) repeatedly asked for them to turn up the heat. The service was inordinately slow. The bread was cold and the butter was darn near frozen. Our wine came out AFTER our food and we had to remind the waiter that we had ordered wine. We ordered an appetizer that we heard the waiter telling someone else about (didn't mention it to us) and although it sounded good it was very greasy and not that great. There was nothing on the menu that was particlarly compelling so I ended up ordering filet mignon. The steak was good but nothing to write home about. Final analysis: this restaruant does not justify its prices and will not be replacing the much missed Michaels at the Citadel as our special occasion restraurant. more

Great entrees, good customer service. 9/29/2007

French food has long been my favorite, and we (four of us) were all looking forward to our first visit to Vincent's. Having dined in other French restaurants, we wanted to save room for dessert. That was difficult because we couldn't stop eating the delicious croissants. The lobster bisque was quite tasty as well. Then our entrees arrived and they were excellent. My favorite is the scallops with butternut squash. Then we ordered souffles, chocolate and grand marnier. Much to our dismay, they arrived undercooked and were unedible due to raw egg whites. However, the coffee was pretty good and they did not charge for the uneaten desserts. They also brought out a little chocolate pastry that was not bad. Some of the other desserts were probably good but I cannot comment on those we did not try. Pros: Great entrees! Ambience excellent, parking service good. Cons: Souffles are uncooked and the service isn't the greatest. more

WOW!! 7/16/2006

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. The service, the food and the ambiance is something others should model themselves after. I have been both with a small party of 3 and larger parties up to 18 and in all cases, everyone was thrilled with the dining experiencve. Pros: Truly great food, unusual dishes. Cons: A little expensive for a regular visit. more

Flash From the Past 5/21/2006

Our first impression after waiting 30 minutes for dinner menus was to pay for the wine that was already delivered (warm from the 'cellar') and leave and go somewhere else. We should have gone with our gut. Vincent's may have been the deal in its day, but its best days are well behind it. From the badly tarnished silver to the dirty wine and water glasses there was nothing positive to remember about this dining experience. The food was average at best. The lobster chimichanga, desribed as lightly fried, was soggy with the grease it was fried in and looked like it was prepared well ahead of our order. The entree's (Artic Char and signature Duck) were nearly flavorless. The food, service and ambience were charicatures of better days gone by. We would not recommend Vincent's to anyone looking for the best Phoenix has to offer, you will be disappointed. more

Excellent 11/22/2005

This quaint small french cuisine is an excellent place to find the best gourmet food in town. The atmosphere of the staff is excellent and the quality and differentiation in the menu is something great to experience. I have never been disappointed. Highly recommended. Pros: Extravagant Menu, Superior Cust Service, Excellent food choice Cons: parking tight more

Salty duck and hard bread 10/24/2005

We had read such nice reviews about the restaurant that we decided to try Vincnet's. We were seated promptly, but it took the staff over 10 minutes to get us our menus and over 20 minutes to drop off a very stale basket of bread. Their signature duck dish was very salty and overall, the food and presentation were average. During the meal, I was getting ready to write up a terrible review of the place but 1 thing brightened up our experience. We had declined desserts because we wanted to end dinner and get out of there as quickly as possible. Chef Vincent however insisted that we have dessert and we were given a delicious apple tart on the house (which we polished off). more

Outstanding 9/15/2004

Close to the airport, located on Citysearch. Spinach salad was loaded with bacon and mushrooms. Well done. Duck tamales were unusual and perfectly executed. Berry cobbler was outstanding. Presentation was award winning. Bread was good hard crust and croissants were very buttery. Olives were a nice touch and delicious too! Not cheap at $50, but an excellent meal. Pros: good visual presentat, Unique entrees, exceptional selection more

Nothing but the best 12/26/2003

I am convinced that God dines at Vincent's place at least once a week. This small restaurant offers the very best of France and Arizona, combined with success no other chef has achieved. The food is not all presentation as it is in some restaurants. It TASTES wonderful! Delicate and sassy flavors blend harmoniously into ambrosia fit to serve on Mt. Olympus. The wine list is the size of a telephone book. Desserts will have one throwing away those Atkins books. It simply does not get any better than this. It's spendy but treat yourself and then look down on lesser efforts from other restaurants. Pros: Outstanding, Creative Cuisine, Unpretentious Ambianc Cons: Pricey more
