Poor ingredients...sugar is way up as a main ingredient. A seedy atmosphere in need of a good wash down, Windows a filthy for an eatery. I found it so unappealing. Yes, there are much worse but prices match the low end - here it's priced as if it were good. I will never step foot there again!

I went to Vincent's Clam Bar based on Trip Adviser reviews and a recommendation from the hotel where I stayed. I arrived about 35 minutes before closing so am chalking up a couple of the less that great comments I have to that. I can not say enough great things about the service; I was seated right away, my server... More

This restaurant is crazy busy - so I recommend reservations. The food is fresh and flavorful. There was a lot of choice and some very unique couplings of food.

Been dining there for years and the food has been consistently excellent. They make Calamari the way it should be made. The service is excellent too and that's why they're still there after all these years. If Vincent's gets a bad review it means the customer was just in a bad mood because of a impacted wisdom tooth and has... More

I ordered the linguine with clam sauce and I am glad I did. Even though they don't have a lot of whole clams in the shell, the dish has a ton of large chopped clams in it. The sauce as excellent flavor and there was plenty of pasta. I was thinking that I might order a dozen steamers but I... More

Great Italian restaurant. Great food, and quick service. Always friendly staff. It can get loud inside but it's a nice ambiance. Everything there is great.

Don't miss Vincent's. The food is superb. The service primo. And the atmosphere is, well, rustic Italian. All very good. Tommy was our waiter. He couldn't have been faster, funnier or guessed correctly our next wish. One of the best waiters I've ever had (and, yes, I get around a bit). I had the rigatoni with sausage. Tommy was happy...

I've been here maybe 7 times. The food is average to above average. A little loud which I'm okay with. No problem with parking and the service was very good. A while ago I was here with a party of about 25 people and they brought us 3 pizza's while we waited for the food and man was it good.... More
