I had the puff pastry filled with seafood with carrots and zucchini--an absolutely delicious dish--also really large so I had the joy of eating it the next day. The other person had a shredded beef dish that she absolutely loved.

Seven of us dined at this restaurant and all of us were satisfied with our meals. The lamb and rainbow trout were exceptionally delicious. We also vastly enjoyed the sangria

Went to Vicente’s with a large group of friends. The restaurant had a great vibe. We ordered multiple pitchers of Sangria and they were very good. A lot of the dishes were Spanish as opposed to Cuban. Non the less the food was extremely tasty....More

First time eating dinner here and will definitely be back. Atmosphere was nice. Food was great! We found several items we would have liked to eat! Drinks were great! Service was decent but it was crowded. Adding Vicente’s to our list of date night restaurants.
