Nice burger and poutine. A nice place for a quick bite. The Pinot noir was served chilled, perhaps a little bit colder than expected.

It was my birthday, and I absolutely loved having brunch here! The only thing is I would have preferred better seating since I made a reservation, but other than that, it was stellar. The food is always incredible, our waitress Rachel gave phenomenal service. Thanks for making my birthday brunch delightful!

We were looking forward to lunch in the newly renovated Vendome as we frequented the old one. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We both ordered special coffee. It took a very long time to arrive and although the restaurant was not overly crowded, our coffees finally arrived luke warm. Disappointing.
I had a steak sandwich which arrived ice cold, even though I was told it would be warmed up. It was reheated and was given back with the meat inside completely overheated. There were a few pieces of spinach inside and very small pieces of steak, not even enough to cover the bottom of the enormous bun they were in. There were about 10 pieces of steak 1 inch long. For this I was charged $15. Very disappointing. My husband got a hamburger which he enjoyed. Both items were served on a dinner plate with nothing else. I have eaten sandwiches here and alforno before and am almost positive a very small lettuce salad accompanied it. Very, very disappointing overall.

I must say the fried we ordered were excellent though!

Vendome was very good. The food was very good too. I would recommend it to anyone because there is enough choices on the menu for all. They just reopened so there were a few very minor things that were not quite right. But we were very impressed with how quickly and easily fixed with no attitude. Very impressed with the service.

Disappointed! This had been our 'go to spot' for years. Since the latest renovations, the food seems just alright and expensive. My daughter was super disappointed with the change of no breakfast type foods after 11:00am. For me, the dessert selection, in the past was huge, bud tingling choice. Not so anymore. It was the same two desserts (carrot cake and a lemon merangue tart)I had shared with my out of town family about a month ago. My mocha coffee with almond milk; an all time favourite from my past times at Vendome was not to be. No dark chocolate that day. Then the drink came made with regular milk. Not good, as I am not able to drink this. Then after an incredibly, long time of at least 15 minutes my drink finally came. Disappointed again. The west facing patio is as awesome as ever. I suggest a menu overhaul. I had the Vendome burger. So so. My daughter had the large coconut, curry soup=very small.
Unfortunately, a huge disappointment of the actual food served and the menu selection. Service was good but SLOW. The plus side is: the renovations do look good.
