staff was very friendly and accommodating (we asked for a quiet area and they fulfilled our request - very much appreciated!!). Food was as we remembered from our last visit - very good with portion sizes that were just right. Presentation was fun to watch with the Caesar Salad and the Bananas Foster. The only drawback was the Trump picture on the wall. We prefer to eat in places that don't display their politics for all to see. Discretion certainly should have been used and was not. We would highly recommend if they stayed neutral with their politics. A picture of Frank Sinatra or Cookie Monster would have been better.

The food was awesome, well worth the money. The wait service was friendly and very attentive. The only thing I would suggest is put more time into cleaning the sitting area, the picture and wall we were sitting next to had old food splatters and was not very appetizing. The chair rails could use some touch up painting as well, but over all we would go back for the food and service.

We love Vincente’s - from the table side salad, which is out of this world, to the V352, and Bananas Foster, and everything in between, it’s all great, for family or a date, and it’s a fun, attentive staff with style, a love of service, and they have a nice bar, too, for a quiet solo bite or drink.

The food as always was great. Danny greeted us by name. We were entertained while we waited for our food as Dan made several ceaser salads at other diner's tables. Fran had a petite filet cooked perfectly for her. I had s sort & turf combination. A filet with a pesto crust and portabello mushrooms. The surf was flounder Vincente, a house speciality.
As we were getting ready to leave Dan made crepe Suzette for the next table, it was a good show.
A place I recommend for people who like great food, in a friendly atmosphere with a bit of showmanship. It is well worth the hour drive.

We loved the table side preparation of the Caesar salad as well as the bananas foster. Best bananas foster I've ever had! We were just looking to try a new place for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the "experience".

Our visits to Vincentes has always been great. I love the flounder that they serve. I’m would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. Steak, seafood & pasta dishes. Don’t forget the Caesar Salad, you won’t find the quality anywhere else. The owners & staff, they are great.

Vincente’s is absolutely excellent! I found this restaurant 6 years ago when living in Delaware. I’ve moved away, yet every trip I’m back in town I make it a point to go to Vincente’s. The Caesar salad is the best I’ve ever had - anywhere. The flavor is incredible. The “walking menu,” giving you the ability to customize everything to your liking is a major plus. Danny and Tommy give great service, as well as great food and drinks. Do yourself a favor - go to Vincente’s!!

We had an eight person birthday party for two folks. As always the food was wonderful, the table side caesar salad done by Danny was outstanding and no-one makes a better drink then Tommy. We've been to Vincente's many times and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend for a casual dinner or special dinner date.

I am a major foodie and have never taken the time to write a review (sorry! :( but our experience at Vincente's was so exceptional I couldn't let it go. My daughter and I were in town for a lacrosse tournament and so went there late (9:00pm) on a Thursday night. We had the place to ourselves and they treated us like their favorite customer ever. The Caesar is the best I've ever had in my life. The bartender can make a mean pomegranate martini and the wait staff are so so kind. Just GO!!! Only regret is that we live 7 hours away in Buffalo!

Another great night at this fabulous restaurant. We were able to take another out of town newbie to be impressed with Danny's amazing menu suggestions. The Caesar salad is an absolute MUST! The Flounder Vincente with the crab cake and pineapple habenero sauce was to die for!! Friends ordered the best steak in town. And to round off the perfect meal with CAFE DIABLO, coffee of the devil. What a fantastic night.

Going to Vincente's never disappoints. The ambiance, the service, the food and Dan, himself. The caesar salads homemade in front of you, tableside. The Italian flag pasta dish is excellent and the flounder is spectacular. Our favorite Italian place ever.

The ceasar salad experience (the chef makes it in front of you) is a must. The banana foster also prepared in front of you is another must. The entrees were good too though nothing exceptional.
Definitely recommend and we will come back!

Gotta love a place where the owner is so prominent in the restaurant! Ceasar salad is a must and save room for the banana fosters dessert as well, both are made table side by the owner (son) keeping the tradition his father started years ago! Servers are on point, never having to all for a refill of soft drinks. One of my favorite places too dine. Great for a date or for families alike. The walking menu is a fantastic feature as well. Not sure what you want, Danny will come to your table, have a chat with what your taste buds are craving and make you a personalized dish!! 5 star food, service, pricing, you name it 5 stars all the way!

Vincente’s is always my go to for a special occasion. The food is excellent along with the service and atmosphere. We are treated like we are their only customer, never rushed and the food is brought to us when we are ready for it, never brought out when we haven’t finished what course we are on. Top notch always!

OMG the eggplant rolatin was amazing and enough for lunch and dinner the next day. Of course we had to have the amazing cesar salad! To end a perfect meal with a perfect dessert, one must have the banana foster cheesecake. I love this restaurant. They do it right, night after night, meal after meal. Perfection at its best!

Table side Caesar salad was more about the show than the taste. Truly mediocre Italian food for those who actually understand good Italian food.

I love bringing first timers to this awesome establishment. The look of amazement in what they have been missing is great. We started out with the famous Caesar salad which is AMAZING!!! Of course, I had to do my regular steak au pauve with scallops because it is just that fantastic. My friend went with the veal, which after trying a bite, just may be my new regular dish. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. Thanks again Danny, Tommy, Chris, Rachel, and Amy-you are my ROCKSTARS when it comes to food, drinks, and service!!!

First time to Vincente's in 15 years. The decor is a bit dated and was surprised to see many of the staff wearing black tee shirts. While Danny does a nice job, he does not have his dad's personality or showmanship. The food had a bit too much garlic which kept my family up most of the night. The bananas foster was the highlight of the meal. It was fantastic.
