Diner Reviews
  • "We had tickets to a show and were running late because of bad weather. Our waiter made sure our food was served quickly, but with the same attention to detail as if we had all night long. The food was great."

  • "Vin de Set is a place where you can always count on reliably excellent food, courteous and helpful wait staff, and terrific ambiance inside and out. We bring out-of-town guests here. Our friend from France absolutely loved it. It is our go to restaurant for special occasions and no occasion!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "Vin de Set is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints us. We went there most recently with a group of 5 to celebrate our son's birthday and everything from the service to appetizer to dessert was outstanding. This is truly one of St. Louis' gems."
    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."

  • "We were visiting from out of town, and had never been to Vin de Set. But based on reviews, we made reservations. Loved the space, loved the food. Our only regret was that the rain kept us from dining on the deck. Would go back in a heartbeat."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Great scene, loved the rooftop view. Didn't realize I ordered stew on the menu... $28 for soup is a little pricey and not practical for July! However, service was great. Wish we weren't placed by a business meeting... not as romantic as it could of been. Overall I would return and order something else and hope for a more quite seat. Thanks!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Outdoor dining at it's best. Will definitely go again."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We went there for lunch on a Sunday and found a buffet brunch instead. Even though most selections were siting in a chafing dish, attention had been paid to quality and flavor, which were great. We were very pleasantly surprised and would go back again."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "A great location with excellent food, especially the brunch. Great service and downtown views make this a great place to visit."

  • "Went to celebrate wedding anniversary and was greeted with 2 glasses of champagne to begin the celebration. Opted for rooftop although chance for storms. 3/4 into dinner they came and was graciously moved inside - they didnt skip a beat. Daniel was our server and he was fantastic. We will definitely return and ask for him again!"

  • "Love the rooftop deck area. Even in hot weather this is the spot. The sea bass was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Dining on the rooftop was excellent. Even when a rain shower interrupted our dinner. When the sky started to show a possibility of a storm, our waiter had a plan for his tables to move under cover. Great foresight! We've enjoyed our 4th dining experience at Vin de Set."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Our server, Charles, was outstanding! He made this an exceptional experience for us. Amazing outdoor space too!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Bottom line is this is an enjoyable restaurant. Worth noting is the crowd here. Slightly fancy-pants middle aged...sort of central west end meets west county crowd. The menu sounded delicious. My burger was served to me totally well done when ordered "medium". I didn't feel like it was worth the mental expense to send it back. If you make a reservation see if you can ask for the edge of the patio so you can look over. I don't think I would have been as comfortable sitting in the middle of the roof patio."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Certainly one of our favorites for a rooftop dinner! Dinner, service, and ambiance was one of the best."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Overall everything was wonderful. You definitely pay for the atmosphere and service. The food not worth the price. Prefer lunch because of the more reasonable pricing."

  • "The food was outstanding this past Sunday. Omelets made to order, fresh waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, crepes....prime rib, brussel sprouts, and desserts. Everyone in our party was very pleased and very full. Sitting outside with a tremendous view was the topper. Great service from our waiter Bobby, never wanted for a drinks or clean utensils. We will be back!!!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We ate on the rooftop, a nice experience. I had their bouillabaise, a house specialty, and was quite disappointed. The fish was plentiful but the broth lacked character. My wife had a panko encrusted trout, which was overcooked and once again lacked flavor."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The food on their brunch was fantastic! They grow a lot of their vegetables and the meat is from Southern Missouri farms and some of the best I have had."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "1 order of bread, asked for more said it was baking and it would be out soon. Never got !!! never got second round of drinks !!!! friends prime rib was raw, sent back to cook, he couldn't eat took home for dog on open table mentioned celebrating birthday, I also called nothing mentioned not even a candle very disappointed. My fish was good, husband said is filet was okay nothing special spent a $100.00 don't know why. We'll never return."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My mussels were swimming in oil- not broth with white wine and butter in a broth as is more typical. Our waiter, Christopher, said "that's how we make them here." I beg to differ. Somebody did not have a proper recipe. Also, the appetizer, razor clams, came out as a salad with tiny strips of clam strewn over the top almost like a garnish. As such, we had to cancel our salad order since we were expecting whole razor clams (in shells) like served elsewhere while in season. We felt it was odd that our dismissive (rude) waiter did not explain that we would be getting 2 salads, back to back. Disappointing. While Vin de Set has been a favorite, I do not think I want to go back there again. There are too many better choices in St. Louis dining."

  • "Quick dinner and drinks before a concert, first time visit. Beautiful view, food was amazing, presentation was excellent. but I have t say the thing that was most memorable had to to with our waiter. The foursome seated next to us, two couples, was being somewhat rude and demanding. I could hear them easily as they were rather loud. I heard one male diner ask the waiter to have a drink "remade" for his date, he commented that it was "Awful, too sweet". Our waiter handled it beautifully! He apologized, and said he would be right back with a replacement. And it literally took less than a minute :) I noticed when he handed the waiter the "awful" drink, it was mostly gone. This says a lot about the service here. Can't wait to go back"

  • "I've come twice for special occasion and was very satisfied both times. The rooftop is one of the nicest in St Louis, and is a huge plus if you're going for ambience. The food is also spectacular. The only negative was the portion of my sea bass was a bit small. It was absolutely delicious, but I was a bit disappointed in the size."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "You can't beat the view at This restaurant, service is excellent and friendly, food is very good. Menu has many unique offerings, cold soup appetizer was superb. For an entree I had Skate special and it was excellent, my husband had pork entree and it was very good. Would like to see one or two vegan options on the menu, also!"

  • "Overall, I enjoyed this dining experience. I did not think the food was as good as 1111 Mississippi, but it was nice to try something different. The rooftop patio was awesome. The staff was very friendly, but the waiter was a little slow and forgot we had desert. I would definitely go back."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The service, view, ambiance and variety of foods were all top notch; food pairings and plating techniques were exquisite. Took out of town guests (huge foodies), and the four of us shared starters (amazing plate of escargot w/artichokes, bacon, shallots; broiled scallops; and, oysters on the half shell) then enjoyed some amazing cups of three onion w/Gruyere and cream of artichoke soups and a fromage sampler paired with amazing complimenting items. Wine selection perfect with couple of specialty cocktails. After all of this deliciousness we decided we didn't no need to order full entrees and could not have been happier! Our server was very knowledgeable and added to the overall exceptional dining experience!"

  • "With a light breeze and temperature drop after an afternoon rain, we could not ask for a better location to enjoy a few drinks and really good food. The seafood dishes were really nice and full of flavor. Great place that we will definitively visit again!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "There were 4 of us--3 of which were very happy with the food. The other 25% (me) had the pork dish with potatoes and brussel sprouts. The sprouts were so hard I could not chew them---the pork was dry and hard and the potatoes were the only tasty item and not very plentiful. I was very disappointed with my meal--but it was edible--but not enjoyable. I wish I would have gotten something else."
