Anyone have any comments on this place?

    Seriously good food. A good friend who gets out a lot more than I do and is a serious foodie (I totally trust his opinions on this) told me the other day that Vincenti was one of his "top two" in L.A. (Campanile was the other). I've been a few times, but not lately and have no specific food recommendations.

    Also a good wine list. Great space. And Maureen (it's her place) is a kick.

    Only downsides are prices (this quality does not come cheap or even moderate) and the fact that Vincenti does not stay open very late.

    Hope this helps.

      Sounds like cooney's friend is either J. Gold or T. Armitage. I disagree with both of those restaurants but they disagree with me on my favorite restaurants too.

        Neither (it would be great to dine with either of them!), though my friend happens to be a former colleague of Jonathan's at the Times (and not SIV).
