Brasserie Du Vin
Charming lunch spotDu Vin is one of my favorite downtown dinner spots. My favorites are the beet salad, the baked brie, the bouillabaisse, the pork chop, the ribeye... okay I like a lot of things. The back patio is very cute and evokes memories of passing the time in a European cafe.
I came for a lunch meeting with some Junior League ladies, and ended up pairing up with one to share a beet salad and a tuna sandwich. Both were great, as usual, and it was the perfect amount of food.
It was a state holiday so downtown was relatively quiet. Our waiter was excellent, attentive and always smiling. Our food came out quickly and our waters were always filled. We ended up chatting long after our meal was finished, but we never felt rushed, which we really appreciated.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways love BDV, but...I'm a regular, live nearby, and frequent often. Great cocktails, usually run into people I know, and the food is great! This last visit, however, the service wasn't what it usually was. Waitress was busy, and it was Friday night, but was pretty much ignored.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy great food and drinksEnjoy great food and drinks in a casual indoor or outdoor setting. Weather permitting, the outdoor dining area is the better choice for a wonderful dining experience.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA little gem in downtownWe went for Mother's Day Brunch and their food was exceptional. The escargots were good and the baked Brie was great. We had the roasted beet salad that was also very good and the lobster eggs Benedict. It was a little snapshot of France in downtown Honolulu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat diningThe 5th time we have been here and the food has been grest. The service has also been tremendous.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMQuaint environment with great food.Very nicely decorated. There is a portion of the restaurant that is open air and the decor makes you feel as though you are at an outdoor cafe in France. The food is great. I recommend the roasted pork chop or braised lamb shank. A must is the authentic Chocolate Soufflé. It is the real deal and not just some fancy, rich cake posing as a soufflé. I commend the bartender. I ordered a Sidecar but it was mixed differently from what I am used to. It seemed weak. The bartender came over and asked how our drinks were and I mentioned this politely. He came back and mixed up another drink more to my preference. I thought that was a nice touch and he went beyond to ensure a happy patron. I definitely will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTRY IT OUTWe did Mothers Day 2013. Reservations via Open Table made in advance, Our time was 7PM and we were immediately seated where we had asked on our reservation, outside. Parking was close by and had special rates for Sunday. My better half had wanted to try out this eatery and we, along with our two teenage daughters, were very pleased with everything. It was more romantic outside. The seating was cozy and cushioned. We enjoyed the low lighting (candle), the ambience, the quick and professional service. The fare was fabulous and abundant. Bread was offered thruout the meal. Our wine was delicious also; we are Merlot/Cab affectianados. I would highly recommend this as a romantic dining opportunity.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMloved it! enjoyed our experienceloved it! enjoyed our experience tremdously! food was so delicious too! def. going back5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBrasserie Du YumI had made reservations to go to Brasserie Du Vin before a concert at the Hawaii Theatre. On the way there, we encountered horrible traffic (found out there was an accident earlier, go figure), so I called the restaurant to let them know we'd be about 15-20 minutes late. In actuality, we ended up being about 35 minutes late ... no problem, they sat us right away! I was so happy, I thought for sure we blew it and we'd have to wait.
The restaurant was very cute, and dinner was very nice. All four of us had different entrees, and we were all very pleased with our food. We've lived here for a few years now & have always talked about trying Brasserie Du Vin ... we would definitely like to go back again to try some of the other dishes.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated Admin Prof weekCelebrated Admin Prof week and it was a first time for most of the group.
