Had a working lunch with 7 colleagues at Vicente's. A large and varied menu appealed to the various dietary needs and tastebuds of everyone. I have tried several items here, and enjoyed all of them. But by far my favorite is the ropa vieja. Delicious...More

Came with 3 friends on a Saturday afternoon. We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed the 1/2 red 1/2 white sangria (which was delicious and pretty strong). Two of us don't like a lot of "heat" in our food, so I had the shrimp,...More

Right in the heart of the revitalized downtown Detroit/Campus Martuis area, Vicente's is another of Detroit's many jewels. Lots of different Spanish and Cuban themed menu items, great bar and well-stocked wine list. Mederate prices and good service. Outdoor patio

Came here one evening with a friend. He had Zarzuela de Mariscos and I had the Churrasco con Chimichurri. Sooooo delicious! The sangria was ok. The waiter was extremely attentive.

Celebrated a friends birthday here by sharing dinner. Good selection of food and drinks, friendly and attentive staff. Reasonable prices. The eatable chocolate shot cups filled with frozen 43 were a hit. Good food and great coffee.

Came here for the paella, stayed for the salsa dancing lessons. What a fun night! The Cuban style paella was beyond incredible. It was a bit busy, and we were having some issues with our waitresses and orders, but it was Cinco de Mayo.

I was there mid-week and the dress was mostly business casual. There were some people that were quite well dressed. So a mix.
