Vintage 95 Ratings and Reviews

It was our first time there and we enjoyed the experience. The bottles of wine were reasonably priced. We had full entrees and both were good. We had the sea bass and a ny strip. Our waiter seemed surprised we ordered full meals as it seemed most ordered appetizers etc. Both were good. The server did a nice job too. Overall it was a good experience.

First time in. The server did a great job. It was frustrating however as I made a reservation a day in advance and the only two options I was given when arriving was a two top right next to the live music, or the couch in the back of the restaurant. It was a first date, and a first experience. When making a reservation the team should be sure to block off one of the more popular tables in the restaurant. I find it hard to believe the entire restaurant was reservation only guests when I arrived. I'll be back but worth noting....

Called reserved a table for two next to the fire, confirmed reservation day of. Arrived 5 minutes early to reservation and was seated in the back corner next to a gate headed out to an alley, had to ask to be moved to a seat next to fire and was told it was reserved and would need to be done by the time that reservation arrives, but I guess my reservation did not matter, because another party was sitting at the table I requested, the waiter was great no complaints but the food awful and I would not recommend this place due to no commitment to a customers reservation. Why have people make a reservation if your not going to put them were they request.

I have heard wonderful things about this place for years. We tried it and it was not good. Our scallops were uncooked and cold, the pork belly was so over done it literally crunched in your mouth, the cod fritters were over fried... The tomato bisque was good and so was the fig brushetta. Maybe it was an off night, but we won't be back.

Service was great. Salad was good, steak was ok, Brussels sprouts were dry and terrible. We finished up with desert and decaf coffee. Desert was good, coffee tasted like it was instant. Very bad value for an expensive dinner.
Solid date night.
Upscale feel in a smaller intimate setting. Attentive and polite service. Extensive wine and spirits list. Unique and adventurous menu, though some items seemed to miss the mark.
A solid pick that could use some menu adjustments. Keep in mind that this is not a place for value seekers.
Amazing downtown Chandler
Vintage95 ambience hits you as soon as you walk in. A full bar with a notable wine list. Tables and sofas and overstuffed chairs. An outside patio which is large. So far all the food has been great. Recommend the duck and the bruschetta but we have tried a number of other things - all good. A tad bit loud but not overly so. This is the place to go for a special night out.
The food was sub par on that evening. T ...
The food was sub par on that evening. The Ahi Tuna tasted old. There was more hot sauce than Kim Chi. The coconut patty was too hard. It should be crisp, not hard.
My friend's plate was good except for the yam souffle. It tasted lifeless.
Did not meet expectations
I had not been to this dining venue before and picked it based on the great reviews online. The service was great, atmosphere nice, although too loud. Food was disappointing, coffee luke warm, prices high for quality and not super authentic. I would go back for a glass of wine but not for food. This was a belated Christmas work event for my colleagues and myself and I wished we had all walked out raving instead of so so about it.
Great for special occasions
Celebrating our wedding anniversary we found Vintage 95 to be a great experience. The food was outstanding. My wife had the salmon which was prepared and served exactly right. I had trout and it was delicious. The only drawback was the music as it is advertised quiet but was very loud.
First time at Vintage 95. I was very impressed. Before we ordered our wine our server, who was terrific, gave us two tastings of the two wines we were interested in. The server made some suggestions on the appetizers which were all good. For my entree I had the duck, medium rare, which was fantastic. I was a visitor to Phoenix but I would definitely go back the next time my travels take me there.
We were seated outside where it was cold. A space heater was eventually brought to our table. We told our server that we really wanted to "geek out with the wines". She asked what we liked. We told her mostly Pinot Noir, so she proceeded to tell us about the new wines they had, Chardonnay and Cabernet (umm, ok), but she lost us when she couldn't pronounce them. Their wine buyer had left a month ago.
The food was good, but I doubt we will go back.
More cramped than cozy
I selected this venue for pre-Theater dining...Hoping for a cozy atmosphere, nice tapas, and a leisurely dinner before the concert at the Chandler Arts Center, a few blocks away. We arrived on time for an early 5:30 reservation. We were seated at a 24" by 24" table, pushed back into a sofa and another couple's table... the rest of the restaurant was virtually empty. For 2 women, with purses, coats, and scarves to manipulate it was not comfortable.
Next we ordered the brie with cranberry and walnut bread appetizer and wine. The wine was very nice, and served quickly... we waited fully 45 minutes for the brie, and the remainder of our order... all arriving at about 6:15... We needed to start back to the theater by 6:45, so no leisurely dinner for us!
The toasted walnut bread was blackened, one of the flat bread pizzas was scorched on all edges, but the tomato basil soup and adobo tacos were very nice. Our orders were all placed before 6 p.m., Happy Hour, but the dinner bill did not reflect that... due to the delayed, service, I suppose.
I liked the ambience, the servers were very nice, although not particularly observant or attentive. Any reference to my friends and neighbors would have to have a few caveats attached!
Great food and atmosphere
I was looking for a suitable restaurant to have a business lunch in the area. What a comfortable atmosphere it was, especially with a beautiful fire roaring in the dining area. The food was AMAZING! We selected 4 different kinds of bruschetta for appetizer - all were delicious and the portion was huge!! That could have been a lunch all by itself. We had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. Really good bread, lean pork and tasty BBQ sauce. You are served a very large side of pasta salad which had a very spicy kick to it - perfect side for the pulled pork sandwich. The service was excellent.
I wish I lived in the area because this would be one of my favorite places for a casual lunch or (better yet) dinner.
Nice atmosphere, poor food.
The atmosphere is very nice, with comfortable chairs, low lighting, and relaxed yet upscale interior. Was very romantic and intimate.
I am by no means a wine expert, but their were many options available, and the bottle we had was very nice. The one issue we had was that the food was weak. We ordered tapas, and the adobo tacos were dried out, and the margherita pizza was a little bland.
Good place for a glass of wine. The food we experienced was very weak. Service was excellent.
Wine list was good - price as expected for a wine bar. Layout of the place is comfortable with couches and chair, tables, a bar and a decent sized outdoor setting. All very quaint. It was noisy but not to the point you could not hear the others at the table speaking normally. Service was good even on a Friday night. All four of us had different selections. All good to fantastic. Good spot for a memorable first date or a get together with friends. We will be returning!
We had a nice evening out at Vintage 95. We were seated inside. They have a great patio outside with firepits and lounge seating. We started off with drinks and a cheese board which was very good. My wife had the tomatoe bisk and a special of the evening a meatball with a green chili sauce. I had the pork chop which was great, I'd order it again. We thought there service was a little slow, but we weren't in a hurry. I order a glass of wine which had gone bad, the staff replaced it without question. In short, we had a nice evening out. Not the best performance from Vintage 95 but still nice, I'm sure we'll be back to hang out on the patio.
Cozy patio and great wine
This is a great spot for drinks and appetizers. The patio area is very quaint and even with a few bigger parties around us, it wasn't too loud. Service was outstanding but actual menu was limited and food was just ok. The wine list is good and we are wine junkies. It was nice to be able to order from a few of our wine club wineries. Appetizers were good. We would go again but we would skip dinner and just keep it at drinks and appetizers.
Pleasant first visit
Went here on a Saturday night to celebrate the wife's birthday. We had a reservation and were promptly seated. Nice atmosphere and even had light live music. The place got crowded but still seemed to be able to promptly seat patrons. Extensive wine list. Food was diverse but each plate tried was good. Probably a little more expensive than I would have liked and ending up with about $160 for three which included a bottle of wine, one bruschetta board, dinners, and one dessert.
Best Experience I've Ever Had
Was proposing to my girlfriend last week. I came in and Grant, the manager, was awesome. He helped me formulate a plan and he really cared too, you can't fake that... he was so genuinely excited for us. They held the ring at the safe in the restaurant all day.
The night was incredible - the food was unbelievable - the wine was spot on... I couldn't have asked for a better place to have this memory. All the staff was incredible too.
We shared the scallops, they were amazing. She got the duck and claimed it was some of the best duck she's ever had. I don't even remember what I had, the whole night was a blur.
But Vintage 95 made me feel so welcomed and they treated us just above and beyond and service I've ever had.
Highly recommend Vintage 95. We will be back again and again and again.
