Food was average, the Brussels sprouts were good but burnt, Tuna Poke had no flavor, Lemongrass Chicken meat balls were watery and flavorless, Charcuterie was average, minimal amount of cheese and meat on the platter for the money you paid for it. If you wanted more bread you had to pay extra for it.
I would only recommend this place for a quick bite and a glass of wine and head to the next place for dinner.
Just nothing very good to say. The servers were nice mostly but one was a little annoying as she acted highly knowledgeable but didn’t really know what she was talking about. The food is ok but not a good value. The wine is expensive and out of 8 I tried only 1 was acceptable. I don’t plan to return.
Food was exceptional. Service very good and the wine list is hard to beat. Unfortunalty their dog friendly patio at this location is the street side one and not the much nicer upper rooftop one that this place also has. There is a very busy bus stop right in front of this patio making for a noisy stay. If they opened up the upper patio to furry friends we would definitely go back with our pup. The west location has a better patio otherwise.
Always enjoy my time at Vin Room. Service is outstanding and the tapas present many flavours. Good for gluten-free diners also!
The Vin Room is always a treat. We usually go to their West restaurant or the airport site if it fits in with travel. They do a great job at all locations.
I've been a few times now and I like it! Especially the 2 oz tasters so I can try several wines without getting loaded or making a big commitment to each! Appies are tasty and creative, with some good vegetarian options. Not cheap, but not ridiculous - good value for a special occasion. The Mission location has a number of smaller cozy spaces.
Service and attention was incredible. The patio upstairs is an absolute gem. The sommelier was very passionate and knowledgeable which made the experience that much more special
Edwin is the best. The reason we keep coming back!
Our server was excpetional!
Second visit to the Vin Room. Love the space and the food! My only feedback would be to slow the service. For share plates it's sooo much better to space out the delivery of the different dishes so you can enjoy slowly and have something coming out just as you are finishing another. That's how it was in the past, and it wasn't busy when we were there so I think it could easily be accomplished. Our multiple dishes came out all at once.
Otherwise, loved it!
Chef Mark’s food was delicious and it was so nice he came out to chat with my friend and I! Edwin was fantastic for wine suggestions that we spoiled ourselves with tons of selections. The rest of the staff was very friendly and attentive. Plus the puppies on the patio was a nice touch! Thanks!
Warm day deserving of a patio dinner. Great casual dinner with tapas and lots of wine selection.
Vin Room Mission has always been one of my favourite places in the city, that I would frequent very often, especially in the summer on their patio. But I was extremely disappointed in my last visit, which was the first time this year, as I have been extensively travelling. The wine list seems to have been greatly reduced and it felt dumbed down, perhaps to appease the clients at all their other locations. As someone in the wine industry, it used to be where I took my colleagues from out of town. But on this occasion, we found it hard to find wines we even wanted to try. And then when we finally made a selection, they were out if it. I never used to be able to look at the menu and see 6 or 7 Chardonnays listed on the same page; they always had such a wide selection of wines and unique grape varieties to choose from. To top it off, the couple items of food we had were subpar. Honestly, I am just not wanting to go back.
Great food and great service ! Second time here and would highly recommend it
My parents meeting my boyfriends parents for the first time!
Great food and wine. Service was decent and the staff were friendly.
Amazing oysters and charcuterie! Went there on a Saturday night and there was lovely service as well as live music. Perfect spot for a date night or a night out with friends.
Loved the outdoor dog friendly patio, and the service was great. Needed a few more tables and more comfortable stools. Otherwise a great experience!👍😉🐶
Terrible service. Snitty
waitress. Took forever to even get a drink and the restaurant wasn’t even busy. Sub par food
Great Pinot Grigio & food. Will come back to sit and sip on the patio soon!
Service was excellent, the food was delicious and the wine by the glass selection is hard to beat!
Nice time, great seevice but odd seating.
For table with bench back the chairs facing are higher. Makes for a strange dynamic where one person is in a power position. Not appropriate in my opinion.
Great spot to get together with friends. Will definitely return!
It was the first time my guest had been to the restaurant.
He was very impressed with the selection of wines, the hospitality provided by the server, and the entertainment.
Server was super energetic and a joy to be around. New the wines and the story of them like the back of his hand.
I've never been to a restaurant where you could order flights of wine, tasting wine 2 Oz at a time was fun and tasty.
The food was delicious and they were great for sharing. Because of the nature of the Tapas style dishes, orders were quick and we could keep adding as we felt like it. Was a fantastic evening out all around.
It was a lovely dinner and service was attentive and perfectly handled. Great choice for vegetarians too.
Vin Room never disappoints. There is always a seasonal menu but I'm glad that they keep people's favourites on the regular menu (aka Lobster Nachos). With all of the hand-picked wines the list can be a little overwhelming, it's nice to have the option for a 2 ounce glass to try or their carefully selected flights. Their summer patio is the best!
Calgary Big Taste with fixed price meals - very tasty! Wine flights were good. Service was excellent and accommodating.
Had a wonderful experience during the Big Taste Calgary. We use the Big Taste to test new restaurants and this was an awesome win. It was our first experience at the Vin Room Mission. We were greeted by our friendly waiter and the restaurant manager. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The ambiance was very inviting and comfortable, easy to relax and enjoy our conversations. The drinks were good but the food was incredible and very well portioned. We have bee to BT restaurants that offer small tastings in an effort to recover cost. Not here. We were also greeted by the owner Phoebe who also shared some of her passions and of course her home built dog cookies. She made it very apparent that she has a passion for people/canines, her restaurants which feature exceptional service and food. Bravo!! Looking forward to our next visit.
Pricey, did not offer happy hours for a vine. You have to ask...
Went with a group of friends as we hadn't been in awhile. Disappointed, the food was just OK and the waiter wasn't very friendly. Tried to order a few bottles of wine but they were out of stock. Wine list is never updated. I think in Calgary there are much better places to enjoy a bottle of wine with Friends.
Great place for tapas and election of wine
We felt the tables were too small for our group and placement was at the door. Not great for flights and food.
Always a wonderful experience. Service is exceptional, tapas and share plates great and wine selection excellent. Happy hour wines are very good and make for excellent value and a chance to try new wines.
We sat at the bar, the bartender was awesome. Very knowledgeable about their wine selection and managed to create a wine tasting based on what we like.
We will be back!
We love visiting the Vin Room for dinner, we are never disappointed. The only thing that I would change is the seating arrangements. Tables for 2 are situated so that you are sitting side by side, both facing the same direction and very close proximity to the next table over. I personally prefer to sit across the table from my company and be a little bit more distant from the people next to us.
I go to Vin Room relatively regularly: girls nights, get togethers and date nights with my husband. I always love the food and overall ambiance, however two of the last four times, service wasn’t to the standards I’ve experienced there.
Usually, our server is always SUPER knowledgeable on the wines. I enjoy wines but am not overly knowledgeable on them. So, when I asked a question on a particular Merlot on the flight, the server told me she didn’t know about it and had never even tasted it. She then had to go and ask about it. She wasn’t able to answer my question as to how it compares to other Merlots, since I usually prefer one that isn’t to “tanniny”. Her answer was “It’s not an entry-level prices Merlot, so it should be good.” But price has nothing to do with the tannin levels. I decided to try the flight and I did enjoy the Merlot, so I now have one I can add to my repertoire.
We then decided to order food so I ordered a flight of bubbly with some oysters. Normally, the glasses are positioned in the order they should be drunk, from left to right. I didn’t pay attention as I picked up the second glass, and as soon as I took a sip, realized I was drinking a Muscato. It was unfortunate because it completely ruined my last glass, which was much drier and it ruined the taste. I let our waitress know of my recommendation and she said she didn’t realize what order they were in.
I usually love going to Vin room because I get to try new wines and learn from the servers, who I expect to be much more knowledgeable than me since my knowledge is quite limited.
I will give it another try and hope that these were unusual circumstances and that servers learn about the wines they are selling.
The wine, food, and atmosphere were all great. Really enjoyed our night here.
Service was incredibly slow, took about an hour for cheese, crackers, and oysters..wine selection was mediocre but the place was really warm and inviting..probably wouldn't recommend this place though.
