Chez Vincent & Hannibal's on the Square Ratings and Reviews

Chez Vincent's is one of our top go to places for special occasions. Every time we take the 50 minute drive to the city, we leave wondering why we don't come here more often. The food is excellent as well as the service. We did not care to much for sitting by the door, but we did get great attention by the whole staff! We went to celebrate my birthday, and will be back again soon. The Scallops were Devine with the tarragon sauce. We always love the escargot in garlic butter. We asked for more bread for dipping up every bit of the goodness.
We were delighted by the chef's visit to our table. Keep doing what you are doing. . . And we will be back over and over!

Was looking for something special for the 'holiday' other than the usual places. Season's 52, Bonefish, Red Lobster etc....Wanted something quiet and romantic. Chez Vincent's was the ideal spot. Great Place in at Hannibal's on the Sq.

Mushroom soup was the best I've ever had, and the turkey w/port and cranberry sauce (for Thanksgiving) was superb, as was the service. The latter was on par with New Orleans and the finest in European service. We shall return, hopefully soon!

We had a lovely dinner; love the French atmosphere and menu! The table settings are quite proper w crisp white linens. My husband had the filet medallions and I had grouper in a Grand Marnier sauce that was impeccably prepared. Both delicious! Staff is friendly and the pace is relaxed. This is a great date spot or good option for a business dinner. We will be sure to return soon, thanks!

My husband and I enjoyed yet another fabulous lunch at our favorite french restaurant Chez Vincent. The food was wonderful and showed off Chef Vincent's sensational sauces as always. We have been going to Chez Vincent for years and never disappointed. We were delighted with the newest addition our lovely server Carmen. She was professional, yet warm and friendly, and very knowledgeable about wine, all making for a relaxed leisurely lunch we truly enjoyed. Carmen is a true gem and a welcome asset to Chez Vincent!

Food was amazing. I had the escargot and my fiancé had the French onion soup as an appetizer. Both were phenomenal. The fresh hot bread was great as well. We were deciding between two bottles of Bordeaux and our server recommended another popular choice and it was wonderful. Although we didn't have very "French" entrees, they were delicious anyway. I had the gruyere BLT and he had the sundried tomato stuffed burger. Both came with amazing delicious seasoned potatoes. The restaurant was clean and had a great atmosphere. Definitely going back

What a great decision! Looking for a place to meet a friend visiting from out of town and I thought back to the beautiful venue and expertly mixed cocktails. Hannibal's on the Square is an outstanding choice! Will makes perfect drinks, Katie was an excellent server, and the chef knocked our socks off with delicious food. It's a must try! We're glad we decided to have dinner and not just cocktails. We'll be back!

THE best French restaurant in Orlando/Winter Park. This is quickly becoming our go to "date night" for my husband and myself due to beautiful ambiance, great food and personalized service which includes a kiss on the check by the owner.

I was disappointed, I invited friends to have a great French meal and it was mediocre at best. We had to ask for the bread when our salads were served, we than received cold bread that was sliced paper thin which was falling apart (a mess). The Blackened Grouper was a broiled frozen grouper filet with a sauce poured over it, nothing blackened, and tasteless, accompanied by unidentifiable cabbage. The pork was shredded and smeared across the plate. Our waiter was very nice and his excuse for the food was that they had a private party in the cellar.
I have been to Chez Vincent in the past and it was always good French food and service, the meal we received was not worth the drive across town.

Main dining room is cramped, table behind me, guests were bumping into my chair constantly.
Although the food was good, my expectations were higher. Ordered the French onion soup, which you would think would represent quality in a French cusine, was bland. Portion sizes extremely small.

Don't waste your money!! Looks can be very deceiving! Beautiful place, great jazz trio makes a very pleasant place, but.... As soon as we stepped at the door, we saw that this place would be very disappointing... They just left us waiting for a long time until someone came and ask if we had a reservation. We reserved it trough Open Table but they could not find it. A very small table was offered to us right next to the jazz trio, but it was not ready to seat and we spent 10 more minutes waiting for them to clean the table. It was so small and uncomfortable that every time the bass player would move, he would hit my chair or the table (not his fault, it was just so tight). The onion soup looked like dirt water, no flavour and very thin. The grouper was ok, but the sauce tasted terrible. Rice and vegetables that came with it had no seasoning at all. The chocolate cake tasted like it came from a box. My husband ordered the bavaroise and it was simply awful!
I really wonder how this kind of place manage to make money. Maybe that's because people accept to have bad food just because they are in a good environment... Priorities...

We went for Magical dining, though this is our third time here. We wish we would have had the young French waiter, as in the past, as he was soooo professional & knowledgeable. I'm not sure if our server was distracted, or treated us differently as we were using a select menu? He was good, but we did have to wait for assistance/another drink, & the courses came out too quickly. The food here never disappoints. My husband's grouper entree was very small portion though.

A friend and I went during Magical Dining season, and I couldn't believe the plush seats at the table we were given-- we felt like royalty! My friend & I chose different items from each course, so we could sample a variety of menu items, and none of them disappointed! The piano music added to the pleasant atmosphere. Great food--and a wonderful experience!

Really, really good French Onion Soup, but everything else was average to below average - as if it were from a box. The grouper with Grand Marnier was sliced so thin I still am not sure it wasn't flounder, and the glaze was practically flavorless. Too bad, because after that perfect soup I was anticipating a wonderful meal.

We enjoyed it. (We don't get out much.) But honestly, we cook much better at home. Bread was stale. Snails ordinary but good. Pork tenderloin not tender, but tasty. Coq au vin was delicious. Creme brulee ordinary. (Ours is better.) Chocolate cake good but not special.
My wife loved the French waiter's accent. Sheesh!
We would have been happier with the value if we could have brought our own wine for an uncorking charge. This was not allowed.
So with only one glass each, the $33 per person for two came to $125 with tip. Not a great value.
But fun and enjoyable anyway. Maybe I need French lessons.

The food was disappointing for this caliber of restaurant. They have really scaled back the quality of their ingredients for the magical dining pre fixed menu. We told the waitress at the end of our meal that it was a disappointment, and she insisted that we speak with the manager, who never showed up to our table.

We chose Chez Vincent's because we've never eaten at an authentic French restaurant, and the price was affordable, as they participated in Magic Dining. The prix fixe menu offered an appetizer, entre and dessert for $33.00. I tried escargot. Delicious sauce. All our food was excellent, especially the sauces that accompanied each course. The regular menu prices are probably fair for really good food, but we'll have to wait for another Magic Dining session.

This was our first visit to Chez Vincent and we tried it because of the Magical Dining special. The service was GREAT. We ordered salmon and grouper. The grouper was fishy and we had to return it to the kitchen and get the salmon. The salmon was very tasty and absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and soft music.
