The food was amazing! The only this that we didn't like was the fact that we still had to wait 30 minutes for the table even though we had a reservation

This was maybe my second time dining in at Vincent’s. I usually do the take out family meals. The waiter was very attentive and had our orders out quickly. I ordered the shrimp parmigiana with an Arnold Palmer drink. I love Vincent’s for the signature red sauce. It’s sweet and smooth. The food portion is generous and all of my friends had to take food home. We went there to celebrate an early Friendsgiving and this the perfect choice since Vincent’s is warming and welcoming.

The food is always spot-on with Vincent’s. I am not a tomato sauce (gravy to many of you) fan, which irritates my Italian wife to no end, but I have to say that their house sauce (gravy) is fantastic...my mother-in-law will not be happy with that statement.

Their service and wait staff are also top notch.

Simply put, you can’t go wrong here.

This was my second time here. I absolutely love it here. The food is AMAZING!!!!!! Everything is so good. Our waiter, Bobby, was so great. The only thing I wish was that the place wasn’t so squished, but that is my only complaint. Also, definitely make sure you make reservations especially for a weekend. It gets so crazy packed at dinner time. Other than that, service and food are great!!

Seated quickly, waiter took our drink orders promptly and then our food orders the same. Food was decent - big portions, so good value for the cost. However, we felt like we were being rushed through everything. Rushed orders, food served fast (while still enjoying our bread), plates cleared fast (while we were still trying to eat), dessert offered and brought fast, check brought fast (before we asked for it), and then we were asked to sign the receipt moments after it was brought back to us: despite the waiter saying he’d be there til 4:00 and the place was less than half full!? LESS pressure during a meal on a slow afternoon would’ve been a much nicer experience.

I have ordered take-out several times (Family Meal Deal is amazing!). This was the first time I dined-in at Vincents and everything was pretty much on point. Waited almost 15 min to just check-in with the host, who was obviously overwhelmed who then told me that even with a reservation there would be a 30-45 min wait and overheard the host telling a guest that the wait would be 45-an hour without a reservation (why make a reservation?). There was a lot of confusion but once we were called for our table, everything was amazing. Our waiter was attentive and food was amazing...even better than take-out!

The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was great. Very busy but made you feel special and welcome. The apple pie dessert was awesome. A secret family recipe that was so delicious. Am definitely coming back again. 😁

While everything was very good, nothing was over the top to give it 5 stars. The food was, for the most part, prepared very well. The portions are huge so consider having apps and then splitting an entree.

We had gone to celebrate my birthday and my daughter's pregnancy. Everything was great until the men who clean up the table came over. They cleaned up like we weren't there. Wiping the table while we were still having coffee. My daughter had her phone on the table, he wiped around it. It was very rude. I did say something like "we are leaving as fast as we can". Our reservation was 5:15 - we left at 6:30 pm, so it wasn't we were there for hours. The guy actually lifted my mother's coffee cup to clean underneath it.
The food was excellent and our waiter was attentive. Someone should speak to those clean-up guys because they turned us off and upset my mom.

Waiter was such in a rush that he knocked drinks all over my mom and sister and kept clearing the dishes while he knocked over everything. The drinks got all over them including iPhones and in my moms purse. We went for a birthday dinner and the waiter didn’t even offer anything for that but went on about he’s a waiter and deserves a good tip.

Loud and rushed. Food was good. Not over the top. Very loud atmosphere and rushed to get up and out. Wait staff seems overwhelmed and always running back and forth. The waiter serge forgot several things like app plates cheese etc or arrived late after we were already done. The manager was barking orders over a head set to his staff. Quite annoying to listen to all night. It was like being at a ball game and hearing the manager all night or watching performing animals in the circus. All manager lacked was the whip. If it was more relaxed and quieter it would be a decent place.

There’s a lot of Italian restaurant in NY state, and then there’s Vincent’s. The marinara sauce that they have has the god balance of sweet and acidity and it makes Me and My Family to come back there over and over again for good Family style meals.

Went for my brothers birthday and it was a great time. The server was the same one from my last visit and he was nothing but exceptional. He was super friendly attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Will be going back.

This is a very popular restaurant-busy and loud. Everyone appeared to be having a great time!
We ordered the mini meatballs and baked clams to start and they were not to disappoint.
The sauce on the meatballs was on the sweet side but I like it that way! The baked clams actually had clams you could see and taste!
We both had Chicken Scarpella and the chicken was moist, the sausage very tasty and the potatoes were cooked perfectly. You bit into the potato and it tasted just like the sauce it was in!

Finished with a cannoli-it's not be be missed! I would recommend especially for big groups- however if you want to have an intimate dinner or conversation another place may be better suited.
