Service was very good, but the food is like other steak houses. The bar is well stocked, but the wine collections is very good.

This is an great establishment for any type of function - business, romantic, etc. Sophisticated and high class without being obnoxious. Great interior decor. It is a balance that only Texan's seem to be able to pull off , and only sometimes. Steakhouses are difficult for me due to dietary requirements meaning I have to oder well done , which... More

When the waiter told us what the "special" was, he did NOT explain that that was the price per ounce and not the price for the meal. Imagine my surprise when the bill arrived. It was super expensive, but not super good. Not worth the jacked up price.

Thank Janice V
vysteakhouse, Owner at Vince Young Steakhouse, responded to this review

Janice, I'm very sorry to hear about the miscommunication you experienced with us during your visit. I completely understand how that would be frustrating and seem misleading to have your bill reflect a price that you weren't expecting. We had no intentions of misguiding you, but we should have been clearer about the price on our part. Again, I apologize... More

First time to eat at the Vince Young Steakhouse. So much better than Ruth Chris Steakhouse! The steak was great. The sides were good too. The only poor rating is their coffee. It tasted like it came out of a machine that had instant coffee.

I thought the food was very good. The drinks were made well. Service was OK and not great. It was crazy expensive for the meal served. I was disappointed based on the recommendation and quality of service plus the sky-high price.

Phil, the quality of our food and service is always something we want to shine, and I'm sorry that we didn't quite show you our best. In most cases, our food is incredibly well received, and that's because we put the utmost care into selecting ingredients and preparing each aspect of our dishes. As a result of both those pieces...

This is genuinely one of the nicest steaks I have ever eaten. To add to that the cost ails are strong, the sides are plentiful and the device is spot on.
