This is one of our favorite restaurants and we have never been disappointed. - however our experience Saturday was very disappointing - my entry - the stroganoff which is usually excellent was to inedible- the meat too tough and fatty - my daughters choice of beverage was a unavailable as was her entree choice - the staff did all they could to make up for everything else
The last time we went before this most recent time....we said "We need to come back" Life happens it was several months and we finally came back. It won't be several months again! We now have a new Escondido #1. The menu is eclectic and you have both restaurant "Sides" to choose from, Vincent's and Flying toad. Wild cocktail offerings and great wine list!
Amazing outdoor dining on the sidewalk. Heater worked, keeping me warm and toasty during dinner. Musician who plays on Thursday night , Mike McGill, was talented and memorable. Menu is full of unusual choices for food and drink, from Thai red pepper and coconut soup with wild mushrooms to house-made chicken pot pie and interesting bar drinks and beer and wines. Indoor dining is also available now here in San Diego County. Imagination works here, in a good way.
Parking can be an issue, so ask when you reserve. Dog friendly in outdoor dining.
We’ve dinned here before a few times and enjoyed the measles and service. This time was a different story. Hardly any snail butter or herbs with the escargot. The pequillo peppers were really good. The service was lack luster and they seemed to be struggling. Hope this was a one off.
There were 4 in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the short ribs and I am still thinking about them. My husband had the duck, and the others had the pasta special and all were happy.
Chicken pot pie needs a new recipe, the pastry rubbery and the sauce gluey, way too thick. Bisquit had too much baking powder, could taste it and utterly drowned in butter. The entire recipe needs rethinking, find a replacement and think lighter handed. The salad was excellent however as was the soup.
The place wasn't very crowded and everything was very nice. The guy playing music outside was good and we could hear it inside just right. The food is always great.
Our cocktail excellent. However, my salad was missing two key ingredients; my husband's dinner was cold (should have been hot). Server never properly trained to handle as many tables as he was assigned...and think 5% service charge is a little steep. Will not be returning for a long, long time.
Great time and food with excellent service!
Great food and a local restaurant for us.
We have eaten here many times in the last year, and it’s always been pretty darn good. We went last weekend and were thoroughly disappointed, my wife’s $24 cheeseburger was not up to par, I don’t begrudge the cost of quality ingredients I just want them to shine when used. I had the “famous“ chicken pot pie, which wasn’t very famous in my opinion. The puff pastry crust was soggy and flexible, there’s a blurb on the menu I’ll paraphrase that states they take longer to prepare food because everything is prepared fresh. There’s no way that chicken pot pie was prepared fresh. The worst part of the evening was the waiter, a chap with the cuffs of his Levi’s rolled up. I had to ask him twice for every request, and he never checked with us to see how our meal was, he acted as if we were an annoyance rather than a customer. In fairness I will say we’re never had this experience there before, but we are not sure we want to go back at this point. Also the menu last summer was tremendous, and the menu when we went last week was just not interesting, it seemed lackluster as far as content. To me it was almost as if Chef was taken ill or out of town and the helm left unmanned. I’m at a loss with that as an explanation anyway, in spite of someone missing, the rest of the crew would be expected to rise to the occasion and deliver. Our next visit will definitely make our clear our decision between loyalty to great food or onto the next good thing.
Great service and excellent food.
Cute place, excellent food and service. Will definitely be going back!
The food is good, don't get me wrong. Based on the food, I would go back in a heartbeat BUT this is my second time trying this restaurant and both times they sat someone without reservations at a table even though I had a reservation. Both times now they told me that I would not be able to eat inside, even though my reservation was for inside as the person before me, who did not have reservations BOTH times, was seated in there. Now how do I know they did not have reservations, because I was standing in line waiting to be seated. The first time when this happened I thought it was poor planning but the second time, I am thinking they have no idea how to seat people. Both times I was made to feel as if it was my fault, even after I showed my reservation. What really made us upset this time- there was only 3 tables occupied inside the restaurant and all three were literally in one corner! The host told us every other table was reserved so why was one not reserved for us? Fast forward an hour and a half when we finished dinner and the same 3 tables were the ONLY tables with people! So as much as I enjoy the food, there are too many restaurants to be treated as if you are inconsequential. People make reservations for a reason!
The Chicken Pot Pie was decadent along with the bacon wrapped dates.
Food was okay. The pot pie didn't agree with my husband's stomach. The rabbit was fine.
Very good food and attentive staff. NiceScallops well prepared. Excellent flavor of sauces. Duck confit wellprepared.
My first experience there was on their brand new Dinner/Tasting event..... From entering the restaurant thru the evening and paying the bill, everything and everyone was just stellar! Divine night
This restaurant is like a hidden gem in the heart of downtown Escondido. We did the supper club dinner with the Strawberry Day theme and the food was outstanding! I’m still thinking about the food two days later lol! We enjoyed a 5 course dinner with every dish sharing strawberry as an ingredient but the diversity of flavor was creative and so delightful. Hard to say what my favorite dish was, but probably a tie between the duck breast and leg duo paired with a strawberry citrus sauce, and the strawberry salad with pork belly, avocado and borrara. The chocolate soufflé with strawberry whipped cream and warm chocolate sauce was amazing too. I am excited to see what they come up with for the next supper club. Definitely going back and highly recommend!
Brandon Hunsaker is a wonderful chef and creates amazing dishes. His food never disappoints!
Hunsakers at Vincent's is consistently delicious food, thoughtfully prepared and planned. The service was really great at our Sunday Supper Club dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed this prix-fix meal and look forward to many more.
Outstanding food and service and great value. Definitely we are coming back.
It was busy on Friday night and the bar was overwhelmed. The cocktails we ordered were delivered after the food was on the table. The food was excellent but the noise level very high.
It is not the right place if you want a quiet conversation with your partner.
Otherwise service was attentive and friendly.
One of the most surprising and delicious restaurants I’ve been to in some time!
My husband and I moved to Escondido last year and we were very happy to find this gem so close to home! We only wish there are more places like this in Escondido.
Took my best friend out for a night without the husband or kids, we have a lovely time!
Nice little neighborhood find. Good food, great for date night
Best place for date night and the food was amazing.
Our best items were the crab cakes & the short rib stuffed baked potato.
Hunsakers was great. The food was delicious and the service was top-notch! We will be back!!
We have been going to Vincents for years and years, it has always been a favorite go to for our family for special events. This last visit was wonderful, they are mixing things up since the death of Vincent himself and something like that could go terribly wrong, but i am happy to say they are pulling it off and only improving it. The cozy ambiance of the interior is not as prevalent in these times, as they cannot use linens or have many tables inside in the interest of safety, but thats hardly noticeable. The menu they have now is fantastic! There is one with the classics Vincents is known for and there is an additional menu (other side of the classic one) that I could have ordered at least 10 different items from and would have been excited to try them. I had the stroganoff, and it was amazing, the steak in it was the most tender i have ever had and the sauce was perfectly seasoned. I loved it. My husband had the chicken pot pie (all scratch made) and he devoured it, my son had the halibut with lemon cream sauce and mashed potatoes and raved about it as well. The only negative to the evening, and this is minor and may be beyond the establishments fault, was it was very warm inside as no air was on...this did make it a bit uncomfortable for us, i cant imagine how the servers running all over the place felt...overall though, out of over 10 years of eating at Vincents, this meal We had on Saturday was my FAVORITE i have ever enjoyed there and i am excited to go back and try more....
Took a chance on this one because we really ant something a little closer to home. We were delighted with our experience. Although the staff is a little rough around the edges in appearance, they made great suggestions & did a great job, even recommending that we share a bowl of soup instead of ordering two. Good call! It was huge. But that bowl of soup was an inspired creation. Seriously, get the squash soup. I had the fish special & my wife had the duck. Both were outstanding! So happy to discover this place so close to home. Will most definitely go back. If you haven’t eaten there, it’s worth the risk.
This is a great spot. Food is excellent and the service was impeccable. They were compliant with all the current rules and regulations due to the pandemic. I would highly recommend this little gem.
We have dined at Hunsaker's at Vincent's for many years and always impressed with the quality of food and professional service. Definitely a five star restaurant even in Covid times.
We were anxious to try Hunsaker at Vincents. We were not disappointed. The decor is beautiful and elegant with lovely colors. We ordered the crab cakes for our appetizer and they were seriously the best I'd ever had. They were full of crab and were accompanied by a delicious sauce and deep fried avocados! My husband ordered the very generous rib eye steak with fingerling potatoes and veggies. I had the Dover sole with a mix of farro cooked with baby squash and red peppers. The sauce was devine...a cheesy mix. For dessert we indulged in the peach and apple crisp served with vanilla ice cream...yum! We were never rushed and each course arrived well paced. All in all, an outstanding meal from beginning to end.!
Great decor, service, food and wine!
At the price point of Vincent's it forces me to compare with Mille Fleurs, The Inn as Rancho Santa Fe and George's at the Cove. I think Vincent's is just not at par with these others... but, if Vincent's is local for you and the type of ambiance that it offers is what you are looking for - then please support the establishment. I will try to find reason to be a patron as I do want places like Vincent's to remain in Escondido.
My recommendation to a friend would be based on this...
Went for Father’s Day brunch. Service, food, everything was excellent! Will definitely go again!
The French onion soup is divine! We decided on the pre fixe menu, and enjoyed every bite!
