The food and service were wonderful. We dined outside and enjoyed the fresh air. It was busy on a Saturday night, I recommend reservations.

Went for an early Saturday evening visit to Vicente. Parking was a bit of a challenge (as it often is in most downtown areas). I ordered the Pollo Con Camarones which was very tasty and my wife ordered a salad. Food was up in less than 10 minutes and server was very pleasant. We will definitely be visiting again!

I've never had Cuban food before and was blown away in a good way. We were able to sit on their patio and it was a beautiful experience. We ordered paella with empanadas as an appetizer. We knew up front the paella would take 45 minutes so we were able to sit back and relax. When it came the waitress... More

My husband and I went here for dinner before a show at the Fox Theatre. It was about a 15 minute walk. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were all incredible. We got empanadas as an appetizer and we each got a different meal. Honestly we could have split one meal because the portions were enormous! Despite this, the food was... More

Downtown Street parking with parking garage available. Warm restaurant buzz with live music on scheduled nites. You will need a reservation for prime time dining and/or live music nites. I love spice but spice doesn't love me. I was initially tentative with me dinner selections but there were plenty of no spice and spicy Cuban levels to chose from. My... More

A very good friend took me here for my birthday. I was really upset as I have passed by this restaurant on numerous occasions and never went inside. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS. I had the calamari appetizer and we shared a seafood paella. The seafood was very fresh and I enjoyed that meal (which was 1/2 of the entire... More

Normally during stays at the RenCen we usually walk to Greektown and eat at Nikki's for some casual Greek pizza and beer. We started walking towards the Hard Rock and fell upon Vicente's for dinner and glad that we did. Great atmosphere and basically licked my plate clean. I got the Dirty Clothes and my friend got the seafood Paella.... More

Excellent small plates. We ordered a number of them and passed them around. Our group was about 10-12 and we had plenty of room. The place is pretty big.

We went here with our two kids while on spring break. Monday night, not too busy but picked up as we were leaving. Food and drinks were fantastic! Definitely recommend the mojito and house made sangria. The kids split a dinner and still didn't finish it all. Loved being able to get food that you don't find very often. Wanted... More
