AVOID THIS RESTAURANT!!!! IT NEEDS QUITE A FEW CHANGES TO BE AVERAGE, A LOT TO BE GREAT.
Yes, I gave Vintage one star, and I must preface ""my opinions"" by saying that I only had wine, and did not give them a chance to drop the ball with the food as they did with the wine. As someone who was previously in the wine industry, stays up to date and has a nice wine cellar, I was highly dissapointed.
The wines on the list are overpriced and not great examples of the varietals or regions. They seem to be selected to fill ""spaces"" without much meaning. Very little on the list shows great creativity or hard work to get ""great"" specialty wines that are available through the state store system. They need high quality value wines as well as some high quality mid-priced wines. Owner, have someone who knows the marketing of wine and the trends in the industry choose your selections. You invested capital in the fit out of the property. Now, invest in what you are claiming the theme is; a wine bar. In a byob town, you need to do it right as a wine bar to have a chance to make a consistent profit. Go to Panorama and copy what they do RIGHT!
The flight selections are absolutely abysmal and overpriced. I could not believe the 3 sparklers they selected for a sparkler flight! No interelation between style and below average wines! They served sparkling wines in small tasting wine glasses, NOT flutes. I asked the manager about this and she said they did not have flutes are not small enough. Sorry manager or owner of this place, take a trip to napa, go to the sparkling facilities, they do one ounce pours in flutes. No REAL wine bar has such ignorence combined with audacity.
Readers, take a look at the July 5th Philadelphia Weekly review of Vintage. Yes, PW give the food ""decent"" reviews, but the article describes the same surley attitude in ""some"" of the staff. One staff member was simply rude to me! Clearly, ownership does not care as they had a month to correct the problem. Lastly, they do not take American Express! AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!
