Vin Room is always a pleasure. We love the lounge area and sitting for a few hours. Especially live jazz nights. Keep it up!!

Resto was busy because of a large group party. Took a while before we were given a table. Was expecting a bit more personal service especially in selecting our wines as we don’t go out on a date often. Food is good and place is still nice but just wished it was quieter and not crowded. Our timing could be wrong. Hope next time we go there, the place is more laid back (which is what I liked about this place before)

Everything alright but the food. Oysters were fine but things went downhill quickly. Meatballs were tasteless and undercooked, lobster nachos barely had lobster and had valentinas poured all over ( looked like something i once made im my college dorm after a night out tbh) the crispy chicken was waaay too salty, and lastly the rubber rings of calamari tasted like something warmed up from the freezer. Great wine, nice atmosphere, awful food. Thankfully portions were small...

I purposely chose the Vin Room for my husband’s birthday dinner because it was, what I thought would be, ‘an adult’ restaurant. I was looking for a quiet, romantic atmosphere, with no children. It was unfortunate, that there were only two other occupied tables, one of the couples left and the remaining table had three adults and three children. Thankfully, the children were fairly quiet. I love kids, and have a couple myself, but currently, I am on a quest to find restaurants which does not cater to families with small children, as they have ruined many fine dining experiences for me.

The service and food, at the Vin Room, was fabulous.

We go to Vin Room a couple times per year and it’s starting to feel a little stuck. The food is usually good but last time it felt a bit uninspired. The crab cakes were mushy and not good at all, which is usually not the case. The Asian noodle salad was strangely flavorless. The lobster nachos were good but you had to hunt for any lobster flavor. The steak bites and gnocchi were great, and the crispy chicken was really good but needed more noodles, as it was not very flavorful without them. The wine selection was great, as always, enjoyed being able to order 2 ounces for trying. Service was great, attentive and quick. Overall, it feels like they need to update and freshen up the menu with some more new choices or rekindle their enthusiasm for the current offerings.

Came in one evening with my sister and mother. Extremely quiet. Food was bland, only thing I truly enjoyed were the steak bites, so tasty.
Recommendations regarding wine choices were very minimal. Expected a lot more.

We had our dogs on the patio and it was aweosome.
I did feel a little badly for other patrons who did not have dogs - but We were certainly happy and that is why we choose to go the Vin Room West.

Great patio to take your dog!! They are SO accommodating to pets. Although I bet the dog treats taste better than the actual food. Ordered 4 dishes and didn’t like a single one. Good for a glass of wine but don’t go for the food.

This place is nice and the service was amazing. The only complaint I have is the price. We paid $156 for a few appetizers, wine and desserts. The prices just seem over the top for a tiny amount of food.

We had a great dinner here on a Friday night! First time here and we loved it - very cool to be able to try the sample size of so many different wines, and the food was absolutely delicious, loved the tapas style and the assorted platters, great sauces for all the dishes. The service was great as well, had a few people coming to our table to bring food and drinks and they were all so friendly, taking the time to explain everything to us about the menu. The restaurant as well is very beautifully decorated with a relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back!

We had a great dinner and enjoyed the wide selection of wines. Phoebe and the staff are wonderful. The jazz ensemble on Saturday evenings is a really nice touch and something very much needed out in the 'burbs. The menu offers a variety of tasty and original dishes - so much better than the usual wings and beer pub food that are the main options in the area. We will definitely be back.
