    Went for the Thief cocktail pop up, St Patrick's Day edition. Greentini wasn't anything to rave about, but the Matcha Mai Tai was delicious! Tropical and refreshing. For food, we ordered the pesto grilled cheese and arancini. The slab of cheese in the sandwich was too thick (not fully melted) to be appetizing. More thinly sliced would allow better melting and proper ratio of cheese to crispy bread. Arancini were tasty but a rather unappetizing pink colour inside? Our server was pleasant but the best service came from the lady behind the bar who mixed our drinks and was attentive and engaging. A mediocre experience.

    great portions, lovely server; we miss the "breakfast" portion of the menu... would prefer that at 12:30pm than the dinner options like lamb shank...which I LOVE...but not at lunch. please bring back some breakfast/egg options.

    VendomeResponded 2 days agoThank you for your feedback! We now have an Omelette and a Croque Madame on the all day menu to satisfy the breakfast crowd.

    Wonderful service, delicious wine, and love the decor. The smaller rooms make it cozy and private . Mussels were good but I’ll probably try something else next time. The baklava cheesecake was so yummy. Might be my #1 all time favorite dessert!

    Vendome used to be one of my “go to” restaurants. I tried the new menu 2 weeks ago and it was ok. Tried it again yesterday and wouldn’t go back. The menu isn’t as appealing as the old one was. While I can eat a full lettuce Caesar salad, a broccoli Caesar salad is too heavy. Chicken sandwich was alright but wasn’t expecting it deep fried. Bring back the old menu! Also miss the longer day breakfast menu.

    I was disappointed in the new menu. The old menu had a better selection and more interesting fare. My broccoli Caesar salad was ok but it just felt like I was eating a bowl of broccoli. Good thing I ordered roast chicken on it,

    Lovely experience at Vendome. Service was slow at the start. Took awhile for us to order and had to come back to confirm everyone’s order, but very kind individual. Food was clean, well presented and tasty. I did order a dish with poached eggs and they did not ask how I would like my eggs done which was unexpected. Restaurant is open, comfortable and I’ll definitely be back to try other brunch/lunch items. Lovely spot in Kensington and would be cute spot for any date.

    I’ve been many times to Vendome and would highly recommend it, as long as you are seated in the dining room. We were unfortunately seated in the middle of the high traffic area, a Bermuda Triangle between the kitchen, the dining room and the entrance, where every time the door opened, the bitter wind reached us. Other than having the one and only worst table, the food was great, as always, and the service was excellent.

    Food was good and the ambiance was awesome as well. Service though, could've been a little better, I'm not sure if our server was newer, but she could've been a little more attentive to everything. Took a long time to get our bill. There were only a couple of tables left and we had to go to the front to pay as we were waiting for a while. But other than that, overall was very good!

    Service was very slow. So slow, I’m fact, that we had to cancel our main course and only ate the rice ball appetizer - which was tasty enough. We didn’t tell the server that we were on a timeline but I don’t think we were unreasonable to expect to receive dinner in 90 minutes.
