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.

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