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.

One of my favorite resteraunts in the city. The food is amazing. Drinks are pricey but its in the city- really not that unusual. The tres leches cake is a must. Friday nights they do salsa dancing as well.

This place had very good food. It screamed with great flavor. Service was on the spot. Drinks tasted very good. Food was priced very reasonably. But........ Draw backs: very loud, difficult to carry on conversation. Drinks were very expensive.

No, there was not valet service. There is a public garage directly behind the restaurant.

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