    The food was beyond excellent; every dish was absolutely wonderful, beautifully presented, and well-timed. The wine was very good, fun and different. The service was perfect.

    We tried 8 menu items and each was amazing! The mushroom risotto was the best we've had and the spaghetti and shrimp was so good. The server was so knowledgeable about the food and the wine.

    First time at Vintage. We were disappointed based on reviews. It was Sunday at 7 Pm and bar was not busy when we arrived. Only one bartender and one server. But 5-6 more tables came in after us and they couldn't keep up with things. Server was pleasant and apologetic. Food was ok, but not particularly special. We had brie crostini, scallops, calamari, and mussels. The amount of mussels was half what you might get for that price. Scallops were nicely caramelized but small. Nice selection of wines.

    We were there for a graduation dinner with a party of 6. The food came out at the perfect intervals, and the food and drinks were amazing. Our table was in the back of the dining room and was pretty dark and it was fairly loud but we were still able to see and hear each other without shouting at each other. I’m already looking forward to coming back for another vintage 75 and some more of the spicy goat cheese!

    was looking for a wine bar near our dinner spot in the Center City area, and came across Vintage; arrived just after happy hour, with the place about 2/3 full, scanned the barcode for the menu, while the server brought water; the service was outstanding, the food excellent, and the wine flights a bonus! definitely worth a return visit!

    We enjoyed our pre-show dinner at the Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro. Service was good and the small plates were delicious. I do think the prices are rather high for the portion sizes. I liked the wine list. The cocktail menu was creative. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and would go back.

    We did an early dinner as we were going to a 6:30 show. We sat outside since it was a beautiful evening and had a very good meal. We ordered 5 small plates for the 2 of us and that was more than enough food for us. The small plates were the escargots, the scallops, the calamari, the mushroom risotto, and the artichokes. All were excellent and very flavorful. The wine selections were good and our server was the best.

    Thank you to all at Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro for making our evening a spectacular one. We had a fantastic time. The staff are outstanding, well trained, and full of knowledge. My husband accidentally left his credit card upon paying and we came back after 3 hours and they had it safely stowed away. Thanks so much. Only tiny irritation was that we had an early 5:30 reservation as we were going to the theater at 7:30. Between 5:30 & 6 the music volume was perfect for conversation. Both of us noticed that at 6:00 the music volume went crazy loud which made for difficult conversation.

    Ambiance is nice and the brick wall with candles is pretty cool. Dishes were somewhat hit or miss though. The scallops were great but then the ham & butter baguette was literally that...not even sliced or presented well. Escargot was not nearly as well done as Good King Tavern or Gabi.

    Expect upcharges but $50 for a $15 bottle of wine? Hmmm! Food was rather pricey for the servings...even for Philly! It was good though. Would NOT necessarily recommend going for restaurant week. Menu appeared the same but would have more freedom of choice. Worked out to MAYBE a free dessert depending on choices. Unfortunately...Not on our "must return" list!
