Chez Vincent & Hannibal's on the Square Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I enjoyed escargots as our appetizer and creme brûlée for dessert. For our main course, I had the grouper in Grand Marnier sauce and she enjoyed her salmon in a raspberry and sherry reduction. Our server was attentive and helped us with our dining decisions. The wine list was extensive.
Entrees were great server was good! The creme brulee was ok. We had a reservation for two but they put us next to the piano performer... the performer is great lovely man but we could not talk at all! It was my wife's birthday and we could not talk much!. The neighbors on the next table were complaining too. I would suggest that the performer sings a couple of songs and takes a break leaving more time for people to have a conversation. I think i would like to come back but if I get the same table I will ask for a table change
Excited to finally try this restaurant after hearing about it over the years. Went there for the magical dining menu and was not disappointed but underwhelmed with the food. Nice cozy layout and great ambiance. Service was good and thoughtful. Unsure if the underwhelming food was due to the magical dining but the food came out rather quickly as if it was already prepped and waiting. The French onion soup had good flavor but was served in a glass bowl. The soup also looked a mess and didn't show the prototypical cheesy crust you would expect. I was super excited to try the coq au vin as it's one of my favorite dishes. The chicken was good but lacking some seasoning and the wine reduction sauce not as flavorful as it should of been. The dessert I had was underwhelming but my dates creme brûlée was very good. Not bad overall but I would rather go to another French restaurant if given the choice.
The service and food here is wonderful…Beef Filet cooked to our request with a light sauce, tender vegetables served creatively and a large fluffy mound of mashed potatoes. The appetizer of escargot in puff pastry was delightfully delicate. The Creme Brulée excellent as well as the chocolate crepe. Server took an extra moment to select a cabernet and chardonnay glass of wine based on our description of what we usually like…perfect. Always dependably French!
Dinner was fabulous. My reason for only giving 3 stars for service came at the very end. My friend and I requested that our leftovers be boxed up. We were very disappointed that they only boxed up the protein. So instead of having a great lunch the next day with all the leftovers, all we had was the meat. Please ask next time if we want everything boxed up. I would sure appreciate it.
cute little place just enough off the beaten path of Park St in Winter Park - food was great, very extensive wine list, service was top notch as well. peeked into Hannibal's which is attached to Chez Vincent - had live music and looked like fun.....next time...
My husband and I were so excited to kick start the Magical dining month with a new place, especially a French restaurant because it reminded of our time spent in Paris before kids. We usually make at least 6-8 Magical dining reservations each season/year to try new places/dishes with friends & family. We selected the Ahi Tuna first course, Blackened Grouper Grand Mariner seared with a Grand Marnier sauce and the Saumon au Framboises
poached salmon with a raspberry & sherry sauce, all amazing. Friendly staff, but it felt very rushed. We were asked repeatedly how our food and wine tasted after each course was delivered before we actually got a chance to taste it! We were only there an hour , about to finish up when one of the staff said to a new couple walking through the door, while gesturing at us, (I'm paraphrasing) "we aren't ready for you because they are still at your reserved table". Needless to say we left very abruptly and went elsewhere to continue our date. Wow! Not exactly the experience I was expecting , but will not allow it to rain on the rest of the magical foodie celebration season.
We were given a gift certificate by our children and thoroughly enjoyed our "date" night. Food was delicious (best French Onion soup I"ve ever had) and service was very good! We both got different fish dinners and sample each others plates. Neither of us could decide who had the better meal as they were both exceptional! It is a place we wouldn't have normally gone to as I'm not usually a fan of French food, but I believe I've changed my mind since my meal and dessert at Chez Vincent! It was definitely a wonderful experience and we will be back!
Whenever we eat at Chez Vincent (we like to start with a drink at the Hannibal's bar, but we always dine on the Chez Vincent side), we expect a delicious meal. We're never disappointed, and we're always pleasantly surprised by some small touch - it could be the way the evening's special throws a twist on a traditional French recipe, or a great conversation with the chef, or a discovery that we love espresso creme brulee..or all three!
This was a tail of two meals. My wife and I are new to the city and decided to check out Chez Vincent & Hannibal's on the Square for a date night. When we arrive, we were able to seat ourselves wherever since the restaurant was very open for 7:45 on a Friday night. Our server was nice and enticed us with the specials of the evening. The dessert for the evening was a chocolate soufflé, which I ordered for myself to give them plenty of time to prepare it. We had escargot as an appetizer, and a couple of glasses of wine. I ordered the Filet with a peppercorn sauce and the scallops while my wife ordered the Degustation.....a selection of offered entrées w/ coordinating sauces from the land, which included Rack of Lamb, Chicken Paupiette, Tenderloin of Pork, Filet Mignon, & Free Range Venison. This is the point where our experiences diverge, my food was prepared perfectly, where as my wife's meal was a bit of a train wreck. The chicken and venison were overcooked, and the filet, lamb and venison were poorly trimmed and full of sliver skin, so bad actually she couldn't even cut through the lamb with her steak knife. Our server was MIA after the food was delivered so we were unable to complain in a timely fashion, and when he came back to clear our table, my wife informed him of the way the food was brought out. To which he politely thanked her for her input. That's it. Now we expected to have the chef or manager visit us at this point...nope, no one. But the Chef did visit the table next to us while we were having our appetizer, so it does apparently happen. After a few minute, my soufflé arrived, but our waiter never asked if my wife wanted dessert. He made an incorrect assumption. He apologize and took her order of Apple Tarte Tatin. Again, her's was poorly executed. The apples were great, but the pastry was rubbery, like it was microwaved. The waiter comped her dessert, but all & all, this was way too expensive a meal for this type of experience.
I have never had a bad meal here. We keep coming back because it's so lovely to have a bit of France in our menu. The French Onion Soup - oh yeah - and their veal is noteworthy. Love that the bartender made my drink exactly as I asked, and we had a great wine.
Chef Vincent was wonderful as we celebrated our anniversary this past Tuesday. However, our server never put our order in for our appetizer of frog legs. This was THE item we were looking forward to until we decided on entree. We also felt rushed by our server.
The food is very good. I would visit again for the food quality; however, I will stay away because of the service and smell of sewer. The occasion was Mother's Day. The server rushed us at every opportunity regardless that they were not full. She worked other stations forgetting to bring drinks we ordered. Finally, at the end of the meal there was a strong smell of sewer. When we mentioned it the server just stated it was normal and happens frequently. Probably will not return.
First, I was not informed of the fixed priced menu. $35.00 was quite steep for salad or soup, a tiny, tiny piece of salmon/veggies and only 2 choices of dessert.
Second, my friend was not informed of the wine choice she had asked for, that is was unavailable and it was 30 minutes later before the server told her.
Third, I brought a bottle of champagne for my sister's birthday and the corkage fee was $25.00. WOW....
Overall not a great experience for Easter brunch/birthday. Very disappointed.
Drove from Davenport to try this restaurant. Nice ambiance and authentic decor. Menu had excellent choice for both apps and mains. Food was excellent. Service was prompt and courteous. Value much better than similar restaurants on I- Drive. If you are looking for French at,osphere and food this is worth the drive.
