Delicious food and friendly service from Seth. We come here often on Mondays before Speaker Series at The Kimmel. I had the roast chicken and shared a salad.
We arrived before 6pm on a warm Saturday in April and came for wine and food. Originally we had no reservation and were told no tables were available as all were reserved; we were not offered to wait or make a reservation for a later time. The reception was cool (to out it politely). We walked across the street for a drink and I popped up Open Table to see reservations were readily available (true story!). So we booked via the app and popped back over about a half hour after our first arrival.
Food was great—we had a cheese plate and charcuterie board with several fruits and cheeses and a nice selection of meet. We had a nice red Boudreaux which was a great complement to the light dinner. Nicely done!
Service was a bit slow (I think we shocked our waitress as she was the person who originally greeted us and noted no availability’). It seemed the place could have been staffed better, especially given the day of the week and time. Other than that staff was pleasant and folks who brought the food quite nice.
Overall a lovely place and would visit again.
Menu options offered a variety of choices and the portions were ample and pricing was more than reasonable. Food taste and flavors were great.
The wine flights were a great way to try a variety of new recommended wines!
I felt the service was not very friendly, they were fast to take our plates with food still on them. I we waited very long to get a second glass of wine and our water glasses were empty. Some of the food was a bit over salted so we really did need that second drink. The only saving grace was that the dessert recommended was a great pairing for the wine we had chosen.
My husband and I enjoyed everything about our dinner. It was our first time there and we’re definitely going to return. We started with marinated olives that were heavenly. For our main dishes I had grilled shrimp with andouille and lentils, he had chicken with barley risotto and pea shoot salad. Our desert was a flight of three flavored creme brûlées - mocha, honey ginger and blood orange. Every bite of every dish was absolutely wonderful. My husband loved his stout beer from their tap. They have a large selection of wine and the chardonnay our waiter recommended was perfect. The atmosphere was very intimate and comfortable. The music even added to the environment - unique and not too loud. It was really nice to be able to have a conversation without shouting. Our waiter was absolutely great - very attentive, helpful and pleasant. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
We had a very disappointing experience with this restaurant. We visited it for the first time with higher expectations. The food was poor in quality in terms of preparation. For the shank dish we received a huge meatless bone and for the shrimp-lentil dish we got the food blackened and burned ( with drinks approx. $60 per person). There is not going to be a second time there.
Service was excellent. But Vintage website did not notify customers that Restaurant Week did not start till 5 pm.
Malorie our server was absolutely phenomenal. Food was amazing, have to go again.
I could say if asked, some good, some quite bad. We were seated promptly, but the table wasn't set, and it took 20 minutes for anyone even to get us water and a napkin. Nice wine and beer list. Well priced by the glass and enough variety to please everyone in your party. The food was tasty but small portions of everything we ordered, and we are NOT big people. But the worst part was the service. Our waiter was friendly enough, but as noted by another guest in November I had practically yell at him to get his attention. He didn't check back on us except once in two hours. For a weekend away we were very disappointed in all our service in Philadelphia. It was overall poor everywhere we went, and ALL of the places were highly rated?! That just doesn't happen in others cities we visit. It was weird. Or just bad luck. But others in our party of 4 found similar issues around town.
We went for restaurant week on a Friday night, and our reservation was pulled up immediately. The staff was friendly and the ambiance was great. It seemed like a great place to have a drink with some friends, and they had a very wide selection to choose from. The food was amazing! Everything was cooked perfectly and I enjoyed all four courses thoroughly. The only complaint I would have is that the servers are a little hard to flag down, but I liked that the restaurant was slow paced and gave plenty of time for conversation in between courses. I would definitely try this place at least once!
Great spot, not too busy on a Sunday night. Very cozy atmosphere and great food. Extensive wine list. Good place to hang out with a date or friend, would recommend
Food was very good. Wines were great. Staff didn't seem to know what any of the food dishes were.
Great food and service! Definitely better for smaller groups, I would say 6 people max. Most of the tables are smaller, better for 2-4 people. I ordered the Salmon Risotto, a special that was delicious. Other guests had lamp chops & steak, and all the food received rave reviews. Waiter was attentive and friendly!
Small cozy bar with great wine and good casual food.
Very good food and great wine finds that will surprise you. Mark ups on some bottles were about 4x, so know what you are ordering...
Cozy pub with good bar food
We made a reservation for 3 on a busy Friday night and we were pleasantly surprised that we were immediately seated at a nice table. Drinks were good and bar food was excellent! My wife and I ordered steak frites ... perfectly prepare with really great French fries. Our friend ordered shrimp which he described as “good.” Noise level was energetic, but pleasantly so. Service was attentive. Nice place.
Well-edited selection of wines by the glass and bottle. The restaurant also features 3-wine flight in tasting-sized portions. These also allow you the option to try different wines.
The coq au vin and cheese board were superb.
The service was outstanding. We were four family members getting together for a nice evening and the service was very well paced and unobtrusive. There was never a feeling of being rushed during the evening (and we were there almost 3 hours). The service and ambiance allowed us to have a great evening catching up over wine!
Dinner was fantastic. The service was terrific. My daughter and I went for her birthday and she went back the next evening with friends because it was so great.
I was expecting a lot more from this place seeing as it was well rated. The food was decent at best. My dish was on the salty side, but the dish was filling. They have an extensive wine menu. The wines I tasted were nothing to write home about. I personally wouldn't go back, but it was nice to go, to see what the restaurant is about.
If you're looking for a glass of wine, and tapas I recommend. If you're looking for a breathtaking dining experience, I'd say look elsewhere. I did like the reasonable prices, so I didn't walk away feeling betrayed.
Great location to go out and have a meal and pair it with different wines. Enjoyed the baked Brie, chicken and mussels.
Tried the Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro and really enjoyed it! Big wine selection but not overwhelming and our server suggested some great wines. The food was really good. My wife has been raving about the Coq au vin!
In a word, "disappointing." The four of us dined pre-theater, which I communicated upon making the reservation on OpenTable. We arrived on time and were seated promptly and felt welcomed. Upon opening the the menu the emphasis is obvious; one page dedicated to food items and remaining however many pages were wine, beer and cocktails related. The food was good. The garlic soup was unique and tasty as was the fruits de mer. For entrees, two in our party tried the evening's special and found it to be very good. The veggie burger was unique and also was rated highly. My shrimp and sausage was different and also good. The issues we faced were consistent relative to service; to get any attention from our server we almost had to yell at him to get his attention. The runners did a nice job of filling some of the gaps and were certainly much more attentive and accommodating. Unbeknownst to me until we left the restaurant, my wife called to arrange a birthday dessert for me. Well, that never happened because we never sniffed dessert. It took so long to clear plates and get the bill settled we were never offered nor did we have time for dessert. We didn't leave until after 7:30 from a 5:45 PM reservation, giving us just enough time to get to the Academy.
I frequent here often. The food, service and wine are fantastic! Always get the cheese board and the charcuterie board. Never a disappointment!
Great little wine bar with a good menu. We enjoyed the blackboard specials.
Try the regional wine tasting flights.
Decent background music, not too loud so you can talk without have to raise your voice.
Funky art and fixtures.
A good spot to visit on date night.
Reasonably priced for the area.
I went for restaurant week dinner. The food was fabulous! Nothing left to take home. The duck confit was amazing. Will definitely be back.
Went to Vintage for Philly Restaurant week special. It was a four course prix fixe menu at $35.
Food was just okay. Had the duck confit as the entree which could have been better. Service was great no complaints there. It was, however, very noisy. Could not have a decent conversation without saying Huh a couple of times. Would go back for a glass of wine but would not go out of my way for dinner.
Food was unremarkable at best. The French fries and wine were the only good portions. The pate had no taste and the burgers were average but nothing special. The music was far too loud and you could barely hear the person across the table. The waiter all but ignored us and never bothered to ask how our food was or if we would like anything else, preferring to spend his time flirting and talking to other patrons. Overall it was not worth the money or your time.
Our favorite place in Center City Philadelphia. Wonderful, intimate.
We arrived at the end of Happy hour to bubbly.
The mussels are to die for and do not be embarrassed to ask for more bread. The broth is amazing:
We made a seamless transition to dinner where the special was duck. Absolutely wonderful.
The whole evening is made memorable by Britain who is the quintiessential host.
Every time in Philadelphia, we'll be right there. (Before happy hour ends!)
Excellent food and service
We went on a Friday night and it was extremely loud. It seemed like there were not enough servers. Dinner felt very rushed. We stayed for less than an hour.
I was imagining this would be more restaurant than bar, but it seems better suited for happy hour or a late night wine flight. The food was OK - small portions and limited menu. Highlight was the baked brie. The servers were friendly and attentive.
Good food but we think they could use a little more variety on their food menu.
Amazing service and super well curated wine list, while re.aining affordable
Went here for happy hour. Great specials on both drinks and food. Service was awesome as well. Nice little spot. Will definitely go again!
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.
This is my favorite neighborhood gem. Everyone in the establishment wants to make sure your dining experience is superb. I always recommend Vintage to friends and colleagues.
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!
Great food, great art, and a very knowledgeable and attentive staff. A tiny gem of a restaurant.
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.
