Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Food was tasty. We went here for a small bite to eat after going to a play at the Walnut St Theatre. Vintage is a very short walk away. Nice wine selection. Cheese plate was very good. We also had the Brie with Caramel and Berries dish. That was amazing!!! Would definitely recommend it.
Everything was simply divine! Came here for dinner with my friend that I am Maid of Honor for since it is her favorite restaurant. Planning her bachelorette party dinner here, as well, and unintentionally had our coordinator, Britain, as our waiter. Had the most incredible time- service, food, atmosphere, the WINE! Perfection. We are so looking forward to having our event here!
Excellent all around. We shared the very tasty pate as an appetizer. My partner loved the trout, and the duck breast was wonderful. Attentive service. Good but pricey wine list. Great ambience. However, if you need a really quiet place you might want to go elsewhere (although the two of us had no problem carrying on a conversation). So glad we discovered this gem on our last night in Philly.
I thought the service was good and the wine list good but the food wasn't very notable. The person in our group who ordered the special trout liked it and the fig and goat cheese appetizer was good but the fried dishes were not flavorful at all and could have been much better.
We had a great time and was the first out side sitting of the summer season on a beautiful day. We had champagne flights and a cheese plate to start, followed by one of the best burgers I have ever tried and mussels with the house Pinot Noir, all was amazing! Def going back soon! Great Happy Hour specials !
Fabulous service, drinks, and food! Our first time visit was comfortable, friendly and all around fantastic. Can't wait to visit again.
Try the braised veal short ribs! And the juniper mist is refreshing and all around delightful to sip on while dining.
People are friendly and clearly love what they do. I will be back!
First time diner, Saturday night in downtown Philly, selected based on location and reviews on Open Table, walking down from Convention Center and Flower Show. We both like wine which was the deciding factor over other places as ,I saw in reviews they serve wine flights. Wife got white, I got one of the red options. Wine flights were nice way to get a few tastes of different wines, and the pours were 3 oz, three glasses, but the wine is pre-selected. Host was super flexible...first they let us push back arrival time via call, and then when we arrive earlier than expected, seated us right away. Music over sound system was louder than we prefer as we had to focus to hear each other at times. Service was solid, food didn't blow us away, but didn't disappoint either. Wife had chicken, I got beef special as recommended by server, and was pleased. As for portion sizes, they were exactly as one should expect and priced accurately for a large downtown restaurant. My guess is in other reviews folks who complained about that were not keeping that in mind and/or don't realize French style cuisine is about taste/quality, not quantity anyway. If you are looking to put on the feedbag and stuff yourself, go find a Cheesecake Factory . Most of the crowd appeared be from the city vice suburbanites like my wife and I; bar had some turnover where folks came in to get a glass of wine or two, no eating. Place stayed packed entire time we were there. All in all, good experience, and if in the mood for wine and/or bite to eat, good place to stop.
This was my first time and I loved it. Will definitely come back. We were offered the restaurant week menu even though it was Saturday night. The food was delicious. They had a nice wine selection and our server was knowledgeable about the wines. I really liked the small, cozy atmosphere.
Their menu for Restaurant Week was amazing and a really good value. It has quite a large bar and the seating is high tops along the wall across from the bar. There also a limited regular seating towards the back. The food was innovative and the staff engaging. We will be back.
This place had a great ambience and good food.. from the little I sampled. However, the staff were an atrocity. I was in town for a conference and got lucky enough to grab a seat at the bar with a friend. As soon as we got there, the waitress gave us attitude. The bartender ignored us as he socialized w staffers at the other end of the bar. When we got his attention, politely, it was clear that he was annoyed. From that point on, the attitude and his behavior was undeniably screaming that he did not like us and wanted us to leave.
The shame is, that from the one appetizer that we got (before we left due to discomfort) was delicious. I would have spent $200 on food and drink easily, and wanted to come back the next night. BUT the service made me grab my check and leave after the first 45 minutes. It's a shame. I hope for the owner's sake, he seek out more professional and welcoming staff.
*first time I ever felt I had to write a review on Yelp.
Met a friend here for a quick dinner prior to attending a performance. Although there is a sign that says please wait to be seated, there was no one there to seat me. A server eventually rushed by and said he would be back. Another 5 min later he arrived and seated me. Once my friend arrived, she literally was trying to place her drink order when he disappeared again without taking her order. He took a while to come back again to get our order finally in and also never came back after the food arrived to ask if everything was ok. On a similar note, it was difficult to get the check as well. It took us over an hour to get in and out simply eating bar food and drinks. Service overall was very in-attentive and slow despite the restaurant not being full. I will not be coming back here for dinner anytime soon, though I do appreciate their extensive wine list.
