Diner Reviews
  • "After stumbling onto the Vin Room a few years ago, it quickly became one of my favourite spots for a great night out. It has everything, great food, great wine, fantastic and knowledgeable staff! The overall quality and value make this restaurant hard to beat. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "We have always enjoyed Vin Room from the very beginning. Fun place, great wine and we love the food. Was so happy to get back there after being away from Calgary for a few years."

  • "Although the food and wine were very good as usual, the service was quite erratic."

  • "I attended with a group of 5. This our first time at Vin room and we had an amazing time. The ambience of this place is fantastic, the food was delicious and a lot of fun to share with everyone. We sampled several tapas including the chef's selection and meat and cheese platter and everything was wonderful. We also tried a few bottles of champagne and prosecco at the advice of our server and we weren't disappointed. My favourite was the sparkling rosa. The service was great, very friendly and helpful and even paused to take a photo for us. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an exceptional evening out."

  • "Big taste yyc food at the Vinroom was disappointing. Very average. We won't be back. Big taste yyc is an excellent opportunity for establishments like the Vinroom to bring in a new group of customers however our experience will not involve returning or recommending friends to go there. Too bad. Nice ambiance. Poor food."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The food was great. The service was even better, except when the waiter saw us drop food (crostini with dip...dip side down of course) on the table, made a comment about it but then just walked away without offering to clean it up...had to call him back to ask to get the table wiped to avoid staining our clothes. We were seated in at one of the benches where we sat next to each other. While this was great for sharing tapas, by the end of our dinner (~2hrs), my back and neck were stiff from constantly turning sideways to talk to each other."

  • "Restaurants participating in The Big Taste must want to lure new diners to become repeat customers. This restaurant perhaps doesn't particularly care. The salad wasn't bad, a little under-seasoned and/or under-dressed. The sandwich was tasty while remaining ordinary. The presentation was utterly devoid of any creativity. And the dessert - well, they'd run out of it. But we were offered a substitute, a peanut butter brûlée. One. For two of us. I questioned that, and the waitress said, the brûlée was larger than the other, non-existent dessert. To the waitress's (Bridget) credit, she brought another brûlée. Lunch at Charcut the day before enabled me to compare the two. Charcut wins - creativity, taste, service, ambiance, presentation!"

  • "This place is-- just okay. Setting and ambiance are nice. But the food is average at best, and very over priced for what you get."

  • "We went there for the Taste of YYC. We split their dinner menu and had a few other appetizers. The food was amazing. Lots of different flavors in each item we ordered. It was hard to decide on which item to order so we will be going back to try some of the other tapas. The service was excellent and their suggestions we great."

  • "I took my significant other out for her birthday and the experience was better than any gift she'd received. This restaurant will satisfy a veteran foodie and wow anyone new to the scene. The cocktails were delicious and the food exquisite. I read the rave reviews of the lobster nachos and was not disappointed. The menu has so many options that it left me wanting to come back and try more - I didn't even get to try the meatballs!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "A relaxed atmosphere with great service. Lobster nachos and the scallops were the highlight tonight."

  • "I have visited Vin Room Mission several times and have had great experiences with the wait staff and enjoyed the food immensely. I was very disapointed in my most recent visit. While the service staff were very friendly, we were ignored for long periods of time and when we asked the buser for the attention of our waiter to order dinner, we did not receive attention for at least another twenty minutes. We asked for recommendations, which he gave and we appreciated and very much looked forward to our meal however two of our selections, the meatballs and lobster nachos, simply did not taste good. Unfortunately I had higher expectations based on past visits and the Vin Room did not stand up to those expectations this time around."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "I loved the food but it all took too long. After an hour and a half we had just received the bill and were waiting to pay as our server walked past us several times. We ended up having to pool our cash to cover the tab so we could leave. This place is great if you like to sit around and chitchat but if you have after dinner plans give yourself lots of time as we had to cancel ours. Overall kinda ruined our date :-("

  • "Went to Vin for a casual night out. Had an awesome night. Staff were helpful with food and wine selection. Everything was very affordable. An awesome evening!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "It was great to go to a restaurant that had a creative menu, and even better that everything we ordered tasted fantastic. We stuck to the tapas menu - the scallops and cassoulet were 2 particular highlights, but everything we had was great."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Warmly lit and inviting when we arrived. We started off the gastronomic food faire with the chefs choice charcuterie plate of fine cheese and meats ( the apple butter spread was delightful). We decided at that point to just go with whatever the chef chose, and we were not disappointed. Olive puttanesca, char Humbolt squid (sweet Mexican salsa to drape the squid meat), curried chips and seared scallops ( couldn't place the sauce but it had a soft spicy aftertaste). I briefly considered the dessert section but politely declined the offer... I would have chose the creme brûlée had I not been so full. This is a great place for small groups or couples. The wine selection is brilliant as it compliments the menu. Bravo!"

  • "We enjoyed our special celebration night at The Vin Room. All 6 tapas dishes we ordered were delicious, particulary the lobster nachos and the fried chickpea patties. The warm pumpkin bread pudding for dessert was awesome. Our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and appropriate pairings."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Its a wonderful little place with a great selection of wine. I would strongly recommend eating dinner before you go though, if you can afford to drop over 100 dollars on appies and wine."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Just an overall great experience! Booking a reservation and getting a table upstairs was worth it. Our server was fantastic and made some great suggestions for wine and was knowledgeable about the food. I am gluten intolerant and he recognized when something came out that was not gluten free. Overall the food was all amazing. Scallops were the best we have ever had and the lobster nachos were phenomenal. We were there for over three hours and never felt rushed or that we had overstayed our welcome at all. Great place. Will definitely go back and will definitely suggest it to others as well!"

  • "We had a great experience - quiet enough to talk and visit but nice music in the background. Excellent food choices. Staff most helpful."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Food and wine was excellent as usual! We were stuck back by the kitchen which is less than ambient, but other than that I don't have any complaints. Next time I will request to sit upstairs."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The Tapas selection is substantial and unique, each dish was very tasty and well presented with each dish having a different spin than you would expect. I highly recommend the duck confit cassoulet. The wine list is also endless, with wines from all over the world and all varieties. We ordered 5 tapas dishes and various glasses of wine throughout the night and this was more than enough to feed the two of us. The decor was nice and the atmosphere lively. The only criticism was I that he table was in the bar area with the seating facing the bar. It wasn't a major problem, but some of the other tables are better situated. An excellent place for something a little different, if a little pricey."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Delicious wines, very knowledgable and helpful waiter. Didn't try the food but the menu looked delicious and so did other peoples food! Great ambiance the only thing I didn't like was that my friend and I were seated at a little booth together that you could only sit on one side so we had to kind of sit sideways to talk to each other all night and we were very close to another table. Other than that it was excellent!"

  • "Bartender was awesome. Helped us pick out new wines to try based on our preferences and did a great job."

  • "Having been to Vin Room a number of times I have to say I was pleasantly surprised tonight. Our group enjoyed a number if dishes we hadn't has before and wow were they delicious. The menu has shifted slightly and we were all really impressed. Always find it best to order by the glass in 2 iz increments and have your waiter surprise you."

  • "We had wonderful service at the Vin Room. Our server was very knowledgeable on the wines and recommended some good ones. The food was excellent. Will be back!"

  • "We had an excellent meal. Loved everything about it, but were disappointed at the very end to learn that the coffee maker was broken, so no coffee with dessert. The server was great; very knowledgeable and friendly."

  • "We had a fabulous time at the Vin Room. The trout was phenomenal and we loved all the gluten free options as we both have Celiac Disease. We also loved that the wine cost the same whether you buy the taste, the glass or the bottle - it felt so comfortable, like they were encouraging you to try multiple wines and have a great time rather than upsell you. We were a little disappointed in the lobster nachos, and I think the servers were switching around a bit so they forgot about us for about 10 minutes while we were waiting for the bill, but these were just minor issues. We'll definitely be back!"

  • "Vin offers lots of vegetarian and gluten free options and the food tastes great. Wine list has a good selection as well."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Had an excellent time! The food was all very good! The paella was the only slightly disappointing item, only b/c i was expecting traditional spanish paella and it wasn't that at all. It would have been good to be warned about that so I knew what to expect, but once I got used to the idea of paella in a delicious breaded ball, it was still delicious! Everything else was great!"

  • "A friend of mine and I decided to go out for a late-night supper with drinks just the two of us girls. I had heard from another friend that Vin Room wasn't her favorite, so I didn't know what to expect but we were so pleasantly surprised. After 9pm they have a great selection of $5 tapas, and some really reasonably-priced wine options. I had their champagne tasting "flight" which was amazing. The food was really good. Especially loved the chickpea fritters and the pistachio-crusted scallops! Amazing! This would be such a nice place for a date or a girl's night out. I love how they are open late on Fridays and Saturdays - it is a nice place for getting out without the chaotic noise and loud music that forces you to yell over the din!"

  • "I have heard great things about Vin Room for a while now and just had a very enjoyable dining experience there on New Years Eve. The food was delicious and quick to the table. Their wine list was extensive and our waitress was helpful in making suggestions according to our tastes. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic date or a mellow sit-down with friends. I noticed they took care to place customers apart if tables were available in order to offer some privacy. Thanks for the fantastic service and experience!"

  • "Had a wonderful opportunity to meet with a friend for dinner and a glass of wine. It was a miserable cold evening and she was visiting from Toronto. What a welcome? However, spent the evening chatting, laughing and enjoying the wine, tappas and the service was perfect. Additionally, we did not have to shout above the noise nor whisper because of the tables being too close. We will be back!!"

  • "The Vin Room has always been one of my favorite restaurants, however my recent experience was not quite as good. I found the food to be quite heavy, and partly because of my selection. The lobster natchos always a favorite had too much cheese."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "I found this restaurant via Google and I was pleasantly surprised by how quaint it is. Other that the tables being a bit too close, it was exactly what I was looking for. I nice place to share a good glass of wine and appetizers with an old friend. I love tiny places with good ambience, great food, and even better wine. I'd go back for sure."
