Diner Reviews
  • "Long wait for wine, coffee order wrong, long wait for check, waiter frequently MIA so had to make requests of the manager as she walked by. Food was very good."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "On a beautiful summer day in St. Louis, Vin de Set is a perfect spot to have lunch. We were able to sit on the rooftop which enhanced our experience."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We had an amazing evening at Vin de Set! The staff was super nice and answered all of our questions about the menu. The atmosphere is unbelievable...great view of the arch with globe lights strung around our heads. The food was amazing too at a great price. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This place was recommend to me for my anniversary dinner. The food was outstanding and the service was juat as good. My only reason for not giving this a five star rating was that we made reservations and were seated in the bar. Not that the bar wasn't nice but I expected a table."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The restaurant, food & service was great. However, it's not for intimate settings as I'd hoped for. The noise level was out of the staff's control. Babies were crying, messed up romantic mood. Great for lunch, though."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I felt it was a limited main dish menu if you're not a seafood person. Petite steaks mediocre...vegetables weren't warm. No Cotswold cheese. Loved the 9" pizza. Could be main course not appetizers."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We went for my mother-in-law's birthday. We had two different bottles of wine and they were amazing! The Chilean sea bass melted in my mouth! Cheese platter was delicious! We will definitely go again! The ambiance was great! Especially since we went on a nice summer night."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "This is one of our top picks when out-of-town friends come to visit. The Sunday buffet is terrific, and the dinner fare is usually very good to great. They are using local, if not, home grown this season, which makes the dishes really fresh. The service is very good, and can be too attentive at times. Overall memorable experience."

  • "Vin de Set never fails to please! Even though it was a hot St. Louis evening, the rooftop deck was comfortable. It's wonderful to be able to have a conversation without having to deal with a lot of background noise. Service and food were outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I sent back the steak I ordered twice. When I got it, it arrived med well, not like the med rare I ordered. The second time around it was well done.... Don't know if it was a new chef but thats unacceptable at $30 for 4oz of meat... Also my fathers prawn were shrimp sized and looked to be reheated. The manager and server were great and comped the meal. But after my dad's second dish tasted like salt had been dumped on it I'm not sure that the service makes up for it..."

  • "We visited for Sunday prix fixe brunch. The spread is generous, everything from prime rib (it's excellent) to smoked salmon (nothing special) to custom omelets (very satisfying), and a table full of delicious looking sugared flour stuff (not my palate). Everyone is very friendly, the food and meal are ultimately satisfying, and particularly so compared to what was available downtown near the ballpark."

  • "I've lived in St. Louis all my life.... 64 years. Vin de Set absolutely fits the "perfect niche" in so many categories......ambience oooooo la la, excellent staff who are on top of everything...from knowledge of the food and menu AND drinks, to extremely respectful of the guests, no matter what their age. In fact the variety of ages is another factor in making this restaurant so much fun. I am in an instant good mood when we decide to go (AGAIN, and AGAIN) to our favorite roof top restaurant with twinkling lights over looking the great St. Louis Sky Line."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "A beautiful summer evening on the deck made for a delightful experience at Vin de Set! The tomato salad was fabulous and my sea bass perfect. The two men at our table both ordered the rib eye and were disappointed. While flavorful, the steak was chewy. I was surprised they did not bring it up to our waiter but realized that fact did not ruin our visit and complete dining experience. We will be back but will definitely stay away from the steak!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I loved my meal here, first we split a bottle of wine and a cheese plate. I had the fish special it was delicious. We split a creme brulee for dessert, we couldn't finish it but it was good! The server was very nice and we didn't have any problems. We got here late so there was plenty of seating."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • " Vin De Set was one of our favorite restaurants. We ordered Petite filets and ed a steak. We ordered them medium and both were very overcooked...no pink in the middle at all. I did ask for a new steak and was given one. My husband declined. It appeared that our server was new since she had great difficulty remembering the specials but I still feel she should have handled the overcooked steaks. The manager returned to check on the replacement steak but we barely saw the server. When our bill arrived we were surprised that there was no discount since the server and manager both knew of our dissatisfaction. Again we complained and they adjusted the bill. If I ever return to Vin De Set, we will never order steak...only seafood."

  • "The food and ambiance were excellent, I would highly recommend. It was a great way to show off St. Louis to an out-of-town guest."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food and the setting as always is fantastic. Unfortunately this visit it took over 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. No water-no nothing. I had to track down a hostess to see who was taking care of our table. Then when the food arrived one of the items was dropped so by the time it was replaced the rest of the table was about done with their meal. We will come back it just was an off night (I hope)"

  • "I went for their Thurs evening fresh fish grill (date night) and was really disappointed with the quality of the fish I had. The restaurant is normally wonderful so I'm guessing this might have just been an off night."

  • "Went there twice in a week. Once for a post dinner dessert drink and a few days later for my boyfriends birthday. I always been a fan of the rooftop and the weather we have had this summer has made me a Vin De Set regular. Great chef specials. The carrot soup was amazing. Smoky, spicy and sweet just as our server described it. The snapper special with roasted veggies was also enjoyed by the both of us. Get the mussels as a starter you won't be disappointed."

  • "I spent one of the best dinning experience of my life at Vin De Set. The location was great, a rooftop brunch, which was awesome for a Sunday morning/afternoon. The food was amazing with a wonderful variety from waffles, French toast & crepes to salmon and the best pork loin I've ever had. I strongly recommend Vin De Set for brunch."

  • "Our waiter was Will. He was the best part about our meal. Don't get me wrong brunch was decadent and the mimosas were phenomenal but Will was attentive and friendly. He made sure we has everything we needed while giving us tips on what we should do during the day."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Went for Sunday brunch. Food was okay but nothing special. View and ambience were outstanding. Server was friendly, pleasant, and efficient. Price was a little high for the food served but not outrageous. I would try the dinner menu but wouldn't rush back for the brunch."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Vin de Set use to be a wonderful restaurant a few years ago. We returned to find the food no longer matching the quality it once possessed. The prices are equal to fine dining, but you could tell there was a "cook" in the kitchen, not a "chef". We had a party of 6 and none of our meals were edible. We even sent back the room temperature, premade creme brûlée only to have a second round torched in front of us and still be curdled and disgusting. Will not go back."

  • "Ate an early Saturday evening dinner on the roof. Shady, pleasant breeze, beat the crowd. Sat by the railing. The waiter was very pleasant and accommodating. The hostess and staff were very welcoming. Enjoyed the food, creative and tasty. Steak filets were a little tough, but everything else was great. The sauces on the escargot and filets were really good."
