    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!

    I love going to Vendome as I love the coffee and the atmosphere. I used to really love their breakfasts. I thought it was special. Now I feel it is pretty ordinary. There are better breakfasts out there. I am sad and disappointed but I will still go for coffee

    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.

    I was going to an event at the Jubilee so our reservation was early - 5:30. I hadn't been to Vendome since pre pandemic. Man, it was good! We loved the mezze platter, salads, and had really lovely service. Atmosphere is welcoming and cozy. I'm already thinking of when I can go back.

    Beautiful cafe and the ambiance is lovely for a winter supper date. My husbands short rib was excellent but he wondered where his ‘other half’ of supper was. Extremely small portion, especially for the price and he left hungry. No bread as a starter to help with that. My mushroom moustafa was void of any mushrooms (that I could see) and was layered very thickly cut eggplant, lentils, on top of crushed tomatoe. Very eclectic combination that did not taste good. The side salad was approximately 12 pieces of baby arugula and 2 very tomatoes halved. Our waitress was very attentive and lovely, keeping our water glasses full We stopped at the front bakery counter as we paid our bill and bought 4 pastries as we were still very hungry. These were great! High priced dinner with entree tiny portions—wouldn’t come back for dinner but maybe breakfast

    The “Night In..” is a definite must try! We had a fabulous evening celebrating a 30 th birthday. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and educational in regards to wine pairings and the food was delicious! My only ‘critique’ would be that the food came out quickly, and I felt pressured to finish my course at one point. Very minor and overall I would highly reccomend!
