    We had an extraordinary experience tonight. We were early for our reservation, so accepted the invitation to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. Our drinks were well crafted and delicious. Just as we were seated at a two top, the manager asked us if we would prefer a four top for the two of us, which we gladly accepted. John, our server, was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The smoked salmon appetizer we enjoyed was some of the best we have ever had. Our salads were good, but my date and I agreed our entrees were exceptional. I enjoyed a veal dish, while he enjoyed a spaghetti with shrimp and lobster. Both entrees were finished at table side just before serving. They were delicious and well presented. We had requested a soufflé for dessert, however the kitchen was unable to prepare them tonight. Our complimentary dessert was quite delicious though. A nice finishing touch was a serenade by our server, John, who has a beautiful voice. An unexpected and pleasant finish to a romantic dinner date. We enjoyed an excellent dinner and an extraordinary experience tonight

    Always a pleasure to dine at Vincenzo's, even prior to theater events, when it can become crowded, and a bit noisier than usual due to the high number of patrons. Nevertheless, the excellently priced theater menu, and quick, table side service is highly appreciated if dropping in prior to an event at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts or Actors Theater. If going for the food, order from the regular menu, rather than the theater menu, arrange a reservation time after the theater crowd has departed and enjoy some of the finest fare Louisville has to offer. Safe walking distance to event locations and local hotels, the food and wait staff have for decades, set the standard for excellence in Louisville.

    Vincenzo's is simply a great place to enjoy a wonderful meal. There is a reason it has existed for so many years in Louisville. Their menu is outstanding and each and every dish is prepared to perfection. The service is always excellent and the ambiance of the restaurant is beyond compare. I enjoy dining at Vincenzo's and consider it to be one of the best in Louisville.

    While the ambiance was great and the presentation beautiful, the food did not live up to the expectation set by the presentation. The food had so much butter and felt so greasy that a few in our group couldn’t eat much of it. We had a fun time though.

    Vincenzo’s advertises for Groupon deals constantly and sends me emails asking me to buy them. I did and planned to use my $50 toward dinner. We were going to the theater and did not have much time but the food took nearly 30 minutes and the server brought the check with the meal. I put my credit card and the Groupon in the folder and he left, then came back to explain I cannot use it with the Theater Menu that they placed on top of the regular menu. When my wife asked a question about this he wanted to stay and argue/discuss it WHILE our dinners were getting cold and we were late. Ruined my dinner and I won’t go again.

    While the entrees were good, the rest of the experience outweighed the meal. Our server was non-existent and our food took over an hour to come. We ordered simple pasta dishes (which were delicious). We made it clear we were going to the musical next door, but that didn’t seem to matter. We arrived 2 hours before the show started and still didn’t have enough time. We had to leave before dessert and asked for the check when entrees came, as our server never stopped by our table.

    The server was average at best. He was not very attentive to our needs. During the meal, he did not ask if we were there for a special occasion. It was our anniversary. At the end of the meal he did not offer desert. We had to ask him about the desert menu. The desert was subpar for the price. We were charged $15 for a piece of cheesecake that we could have purchased the entire cake for $12 a local grocery store. We have participated in many celebrations at Vincenzo's in the past. I seriously doubt we will go back anytime soon and we will not recommend Vincenzo's to our friends who ask for places to dine.

    Very classic upscale atmosphere. The staff were dressed in very nice suits/tuxes. Very professional and very attentive wait staff. The apps and salads were good. The main entrees were delicious and had unique flavoring. The desserts were great as well. Vincenzo’s will be revisited by us in the future.

    Food wasn't balanced. Overly sauced. Over priced. Shrimp and lobster were over cooked. Odd table side warming. Waiter tricked us into four appetizers when we just wanted to know if an appetizer would be enough for four people.
