Waiter dropped a Knife on my back shoulder and staining my dress shirt. The Chocolate soufflé was not fully cooked and we had to wait 20 mins after they picked up our main course dishes. The soufflé was ordered 65 minutes prior to receiving it when the waiter stated 30-40 mins to cook since it takes time to make. The service quality was just okay, not happy with overall experience.

while I love going to Hannibal Square and trying each restaurant this one is a let down. It was our anniversary so we wanted to go some where quite, romantic which yes this setting is nice. However, they did not care when ask are you celebrating anything today and we told them yes our anniversary, and for a manager or the chef not to come by when there are only 2 other tables in the restaurant that have guests. Soup, we started with French onion, give it a 4 out of 10. Nothing different here then any other one we've had. Dinner I ordered the Lamb shank the flavor was good but, the meat was not tendor, other places it falls off the bone here I had to rip and cut to get it off the bone. wife ordered the filet with peppercorn sauce, the sauce was good, but quality of meat poor, very chewy to be a filet. Dessert, we ordered 2 Soufflés. one black berry which the berry tasted as they were frozen then puraid to the sauce, I ordered the one same tasted processed. over all for the full meal bottle of wine and dessert just didn't get the wow factor. Other French restaurants blow this out of the water. I should have gone to Café de France on Park Ave. we have been there and that is amazing 10 out of 10.

It is a shame that a French restaurant cannot make a decent soufflé. Waited for the Grand Marnier soufflé and it was inedible, watery and soggy at the bottom. The worse part - no apologies. Well, we won't be back.

My husband and I love Chez Vincent and Hannibals. The owner makes an effort to personally come say hello and the wait staff is incredibly service oriented as well as friendly. They made my birthday celebration memorable!
Nice meal, ambience not what we wanted.
Celebrating college graduation of our son and daughter. Made a reservation for Chez Vincent but we were seated on the Hannibal side. Very noisy particularly after the band started. Band was good but we wanted a quiet meal where we could have conversation. Day before Mother's Day so I expect seating on Chez Vincent side was filled due to that but we had a reservation. . . Food was very good as always and service was good though busy dealing with large crowd.
Special quiet night
We went on a Thursday, when it was less crowded. The service was just right! The recommendations were spot on. We had just enough attention, but left to a quiet romantic dinner.
We had the duck and filet. Both were in credible! I highly recommend a visit! They even politely waited as my date and I stayed and enjoyed our time! Thank you.
A French Favorite
Went to Chez Vinent to celebrate my birthday. It was fantastic ! The lamb with blue cheese sauce was prefect. The lamb was so tender and the sauce was rich and creamy. I had the frog legs for an appetizer. They were the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend Chez Vincent.

Attentive professional service in a quiet elegant atmosphere enjoying deliciously prepared food with no pretensions. Duck Breast was elegant said guest; Steak au poivre wonderful, said husband; snails and vegetables perfect said I. And all agreed the chocolate soufflé was best ever had and we've tried many.
A new standard for French Cuisine
It was my wife's birthday; and, we had never tried this quaint spot on New England Avenue’s Hannibal Square.
To start, we ordered a nice sauterne with seared foie gras, which was perfectly seared and served with an excellent reduction and toast points, which we enjoyed with a sweet sauterne.
My wife chose the rack of lamb, and, I had the loin of venison. Both were cooked perfectly, served with piped mashed potatoes, baby vegetables, and cabbage. The food was cooked perfectly.
I chose the excellent Chateau Picque Caillou from Graves in Bordeaux, a blend of 50% merlot and 50% cabernet sauvignon.
For dessert, we had the crème brulé, and an exceptional cheese platter.
Throughout the meal, the service was superb; and, well coordinated with the bar. We will be back; and, maybe even if it's not a special occasion.
We enjoyed lunch at our favorite French Restaurant in Winter Park...the location is so charming it is like taking a staycation trip to France without the airfare. You can smell how wonderful the food is as soon as you walk in the door...the aroma of the sauces cooking is sensational. The Chicken Crepe and Trout Almondine were fabulous as always . Remy our server was delightful in every way...a nice addition to the restaurant. He recommended the espresso chocolate souffle and we are so glad he did....pure heaven. We are looking forward to going back soon.
The restaurant was full-probably to show support for Paris but the wait staff were very attentive, taking the time to show my younger daughter how to fold her napkin just so. The french onion soup was delicious as was the scallops-super large and juicy! Cannot wait to go back again soon.
Wonderful anniversary dinner
Our server was wonderful, and I believe French. The escargot was delicious, the filet mignon au poivre was awesome, as were the sea scallops in a tarragon sauce. The only real complaint we had was the bread. I really expected warm, fresh french bread. What we got seemed like something bought from the grocery store and left over from lunch.
Disappointed Beyond Belief
I had been to Hannibal's before & enjoyed it but this time the service was poor; especially when you walk in & the hostess tells you that there is your table by pointing & you can seat yourself, the food was inedible & the only thing I truly enjoyed was the music by the piano player David Witte who made the night worthwhile!!
Nice atmosphere BUT:
We were seated right away in Hannibals where we liked the ambiance and the room temperature much better. Pace of service was a bit slow and they conveniently were out of the less expensive wine that we picked out. The escargot came out quickly and was delicious but our dinners took over 45 min to come out; I know that good food takes time. Before my brother ordered, we specifically told them to not put any peas on his plate or near his food as he is deathly allergic but then someone else brought out the plates and there were peas on it! This was the kitchen's fault as we saw the waiter write it down in a big note! Everything was pretty tasty but not sure it was worth the price. There was a pianist providing nice dinner music and took requests. I'd go back for drinks or dessert but probably not dinner.
Special Occasion or Just Because
A classy, romantic restaurant with very good food and excellent service. I can't believe I had never eaten here. The ambiance was "special occasion" but the prices were "just because". Service was attentive, yet not overbearing and management was engaged with the guests. We had the nightly prix fixe which was flavorful and well presented.
