    We had a reservation for nine people. The service was impeccable. We were served in a timely manner with a very knowledgeable and courteous white staff. I had all three of the specials for tonight which were a shrimp gazpacho soup, grilled Baramundi with a lemon butter sauce and a port fudge Pound cake. Everything was delicious. The lemon butter sauce for the fish was everything! I highly recommend the Vintage House.

    Everything consumed (food & drink) was amazing, Evan as our server was fantastic and attentive. The property itself is what could use some love. The building, the restrooms, the grounds - all of it should be improved. Seems to be a severe disconnect between the quality of food/beverage service and the property.

    Overall it was such a great experience! We went well before our reservation and had the wine tasting first. We ordered the cheese & crackers tray. Then we went to the Vintage for lunch and the meals were delicious! After lunch we took a short stroll around the small pond and took photos at the gazebo. I highly recommend visiting the Messina Hof in Bryan, TX!!!

    Enjoyed the chateaubriand for 2 seated in the best table in the house. Server was very attentive and recommended us 2 wines to try before we purchased the bottle. Will definitely be back but not have the cheese tray at the Tasting House before such a rich and filling meal. We had to take dessert to go because we were way to full. Would recommend anyone who enjoys a quiet adult dinner.

    The server was helpful without being obtrusive. Our party of four was able to have a nice visit without too many interruptions. Two of us had the fish of the day and two had the filet. The filets were cooked to perfection and very tender. The fish was outstanding, and there was not any food left on the plates.

    While we have enjoyed Vintage House on many occasions, it was disappointing that they were out of some wines on the menu. However, it was especially disappointing that the flambee desserts were not available. After we placed our order the waitress came back and informed us that they were "not doing" the flambee at this time. They still appeared on the menu and nothing was said at the time of order, so we were left to wonder why they chose not to complete our order. My only guess is that it was due to staffing issues in that someone would have to come to the table to perform the dessert? Since this is a signature dessert for the restaurant, it not being available is not acceptable. We were celebrating our daughters recent job success and it was her first time to eat at Vintage House, the flambee dessert was one of the major reasons we took her here.
