    We enjoyed Vin Vie. The chef offers some very tasty intermezzo treats, and our entrees (chicken, salmon) were cooked just as we like them. Biscuits were outstanding. As a bonus, you will find the check to be very reasonable.

    Well wrought French bistro with a pitch perfect crispy duck confit appetizer and a splendid steak au poivre. Maitre'd Jesse brings his trademark aplomb and waiter Roderick is a cheerful guide. Desserts need work. All that is needed to be five star is a real grand mariner soufflé prepared while apps and entrees are served. I mean a good one that matches everything else. We will be back for sure for confit and au poivre done right.

    I've eaten at Vin Vie many times, and it always lives up to my expectations. Attention to detail, outstanding service (ask for Brian) and exquisite cuisine make it a delightful dining experience. This time it was my mother's birthday, and they went the extra mile by bringing a glass of champagne and putting together a dessert plate with her name spelled out in chocolate. Nice touch!

    We were delighted to find Vin Vie. It is well located on Peachtree St. just north of Piedmont Hospital. Handsomely decorated in a European style, inviting, tables not too close together. The menu is a combination of traditional French bistro foods and steaks and chops for the more American tastes The food was excellent with rave reviews for the seared fois gras, the frogs legs and the mussels. Also an excellent filet mignon.The endive salad was outstanding. The bread (biscuit style) was wonderful, along with delicious desserts, all made in house. The wine list was extensive with good choices.

    We ate here for the first time last Saturday. On the basis of first impression, the decor is gaudy and uninviting. The servers and service were good. The food, however left much to be desired. One diner ordered the lamb chops, priced at $34. She got six tasty chops with a little dipping, spreading sauce. That's all. I would expect some sort of side vegetable included in this price. Any sides are ala carte. Another friend had the boef bourgignon. It, too, was tasty, but not an authentic preparation. Mussels were overcooked with a paucity of sauce and served with two charred slices of french bread. The one good item was the endive salad. The mix of greens and dressing were very good.

    Excellent new French focused restaurant. The food was delicious. I had a filet topped with seared foie gras and it was memorable. The service was excellent. Our waitress, Cher, even hand stuffed some blue cheese olives for my martini when she found that the bar did not stock them. Easy valet parking at the door. The only nit I have is the interior is very dimly lit and the first 2 top table they offered us was a horrible, small round table even though the restaurant was not full. When I refused it they did remedy it with a very comfortable booth in the back. We will definitely return.

    Within the past month I have been here 3 times. Basically every Saturday. The food is out of this world...especially their biscuits!! I kept on ordering additional plates of these babies. Each time I tried a different entree on their menu and I was never dissapointed. In terms of service, I love Brian (Sunshine) he makes you feel super important and special. If you leave it up to him, he knows how to take care of you. He is one of the best servers I had the pleasure to dine with and I highly recommend sitting in his section. The owner, Laurend Abraham, is a superb entrepreneur and an excellent businessman. Every place he touches, he turns them into the most elegant and attractive spot in Atlanta. Highly recommend this place! 10 stars!

    Went to Vin Vie for the first time on Thursday night. Had a drink at the well stocked bar before heading to our table. Not very crowded, but they've only been open 2 months and it was pouring rain -- BTW: great valet parking -- right at the front door! Their mussels were excellent! I had the rib eye and the steak was great. Nice cut of meat and cooked just how I ordered. Get the whipped potatoes -- amazing! Our waiter topped off the evening with truffle balls for desert which I had with a glass of port on the covered front patio. All in all -- I'd go again and recommend to friends.

Atmosphere is sensual and food was everything we had hoped for from the appetizers to those incredible pastry deserts. Well worth a return visit and recommendation to friends.

    We started with a cocktail at the bar to make sure we experienced the whole restaurant. When we finished we told the host that we were ready to be seated. I had asked for a table for people watching and that's exactly what we received. I looked over the wine list, mostly French, after a conversation with the sommelier we decided to start with a glass of white with our first courses and ordered a bottle with entrees. The food was great, the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Overall a great experience!

    I hope people give this restaurant a chance. The food is really good, but the decor is really bad. You know all the Paris decor you see at TJ Maxx, Home Goods, etc...that is what they've used to furnish their restaurant. All the same cliche art work, Paris pillows, etc...it was all a little tacky especially for the price point of the restaurant. The food though, was excellent. Everything was cooked perfectly, hot, and full of flavor. If they can match the ambience to the food, they'll have a real winner on their hands!

    Vin Vie provides an outstanding French culinary experience. We tried many items on the menu...the escargot (my personal favorite), the mussels, the frog legs, the steak tartare, the duck confit, and the sinful flourless chocolate cake. All were incredibly delicious and prepared to perfection. The wine list is also divine. Owner and sommelier Laurend and server Brian provided outstanding service, knowledge and expertise.

    Vin Vie Bistro is a great restaurant. We had dinner and it was excellent. I highly recommend it. Vin Vie has a very good wine selection at reasonable prices. The appetizers were delicious "make sure you try the home made bread." The main course was served hot and full of flavor. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and involved. We had a chance to talk to the chef. He was recently featured on TV in Atlanta. I will definitely go back to Vin Vie again on my next visit to Atlanta.

    ordered a vodka tonic- tonic machine was fiat. ordered a Gibson- they didn't have cocktail onions. ordered a glass of champagne- it was sour & flat from being opened too long. we both ordered rib eyes which were very tender & good if a little heavy on the char. escargot were just ok- creamed spinach was too salty & not traditional in spite of asking how it was prepared. frites were good. foie gras was excellent. cream brûlée was lovely. flourless chocolate cake was dense & fudge like which was not what was described or wanted. wine list ok- not big but broad selection. not sure the bartender us the best. would try it again after open awhile longer.

    Had a wonderful birthday dinner at Vin Vie Bistro Monday. For me, Belgian endive salad with white wine vinaigrette (SUPER), candied walnuts, fourme d'ambert, pan seared salmon filet frites with herb potatoes, mustard aioli and white chocolate mousse. For my partner, seared Foie Gras with Lavender honey fig marmalade (YUM), grilled hanger steak frites with herb potatoes, spicy aioli, and Crème Brûlée - vanilla bean custard with turbinado. Scrumptious!! But the crowning event was the bottle of Chapoutier, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône (Outstanding). Very nice ambiance, great wait staff, delicious food - it was nice to step into France again right here in Atlanta! Highly recommended.

    This place is very good and we were impressed with our food and wait staff. We didn't find it overly pricy for French food in the Buckhead area. I must say the decor is very modern and romantic. I was with a friend so I will be looking forward to bringing my husband. They have a very nice room that can accommodate about 14 people. The menu is not extensive but it did have a varied offering of dishes. It is in a location where there are other restaurants you can walk to to enjoy a cocktail elsewhere if so inclined.
