  • just not that good

    The service was horrible and they were not that busy. The waiter expressed irritation that we did not want to do the debit card, serve-yourself wine deal. We just wanted a couple glasses and knew what we wanted. The food was less than marginal but I saw some other dishes that did look good, but ours were not. Fantastic wine list and if you want to get to know wine, it would be a great place.

    Our group of 5 tried two different bottles of wine and numerous appetizers. Great variety of both to choose from. Our server was very helpful with wine selections and tastes. Was a a little disappointed that the menu didn't offer flights, but then found out the restaurant had a different self service method that allows for something similar.

    We had the best waitress. Effecient, knowledgeable and friendly. What more can you ask! We sat at one of the booths. Some had commented that difficult to eat because table is low but if it's happy hour finger food, no problems. Tried lots on the happy hour menu and tasty. Well drinks were very reasonable. Would go again.

    I have been to this place twice in the last few months and I really enjoy the menu and wine list. The wait staff are always attentive. I twice have gone with my girlfriends but I could see how this would also be a good "date night" place. This last time I went with friends we ordered the short ribs over mashed potatoes shared plate and the macaroni and cheese, they were both wonderful. The pinot I ordered nice and smooth. It was my birthday and they gave me a complimentary glass of Proseco, that was very nice. I really recommend this place.

    This is a fabulous place if you are looking for something fun and different. And an absolute must if you love wine! The atmosphere is fun, relaxed and people have a blast with the wine machines. Service is always outstanding. I've brought friends here for drinks as well as held a private event for approx. 50 clients. I received more positive feedback from clients on that event than any prior event I held; they just loved it! They want me to make it an annual event. Rebecca and her team are awesome!

    Dined on 4/19/2014
    The wine is great, but overpriced. We ordered a cheese plate and tapas, which tasted good, but the portions, especially the cheese were sparse. The bill for four glasses of wine and the two appetizers was 70+ dollars, so then $90 with tip. That's too much for what we got. If you want a real meal, it's just not available.

    This was our first time at Vinue. We chose it because of its Zagat rating. Even though we had made a reservation (our 44th wedding anniversary), we were seated into a cramped table. The noise level was extremely high. They were understaffed, although our server, Marco, took time with us, but at the expense of other clients. We started with the tapas platter. The crostinis were over-cooked - actually caused gum pain. The toppings were unremarkable Next, my wife ordered Tuna Tartar, which was very tasty. Except, at $11, the serving size was about half of the size we get at competing restaurants. I ordered tenderloin flatbread. After two small bites, I quit. It was inedible. Vinue is OK for a glass of wine. Go elsewhere for food.

    We were on a business trip and looking for something fun. After some research, we found Vinue. It was great. The tapas-style food was great and we ordered a bunch of different things for sharing. The wine selection is great and the staff was happy to give recommendations to us as some of our coworkers were novice wine drinkers. The selection is wide enough to accommodate newbies and experienced wine drinkers. I would go back in a heartbeat. The charge-card method is great because 1. you can control how much you spend on wine and 2. you don't need to come to a consensus regarding which bottle to order. I took pictures of a few new favorites. This place is cute, approachable and has great customer service. Highly recommend this place.e

    This bar has a very modern feel and very clean. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant. There are great couch areas for groups and plenty of tables for 2 that can easily be brought together for 4 or more and an area up stairs for larger groups or parties. The ceilings are high and a film plays against a high wall that makes the atmosphere fun without being too distracting. You can have a glass of wine like any wine bar or you can purchase a wine card pre loaded with the amount of money you choose. Then you are free to roam the wine vending machines and read the descriptions and dispense the wine of your choice in "taste", "half" or "full" glass options. The price is then deducted from your card. Great way to try new wines. Refill please :-)

    My husband and I had never been and were so glad we gave Vinue a try. The food is lovely and a great accompaniment to their wine options. One has the opportunity to try a variety of wines (including some from rather upscale vineyards) in a unique and well planned venue. There is space for groups and room for a couples corner. Well done!!

    My wife and I decided to try Vinue on a whim as we looked at someplace new to go in Cherry Creek North. What makes Vinue different is the enomatic wine dispensers located throughout the restaurant- think fountain drinks for wine. Each wine bottle is placed in a case at an appropriate temperature and then dispensed through a tube into your glass at varying pours based on your selection. Your preloaded wine card then is charged for the pour. The variety of wine in the dispensers ranged from less expensive wines Opus and Silver Oak. The prices ranged from a taster pour of $2-3 to full glasses at $50 +. It's a fun way to try different wines with the various small plates, or just to try something different (although not inexpensively).

    Great concept, love that you can get debit card and try lots of different wines, but it is very expensive to do that. The food was good, but there were 4 of us who ordered food and the dishes came so far apart that we couldn't eat at the same time! It really upset the person who got theirs last. We were told it was because they have a small kitchen...really? The last person served ordered a second dish when their first one finally arrived, and funny that one came almost instantly. As good as the food and wine was we won't be going back.

    This is a great place to meet friends for a glass of wine. Dark, sophisticated atmosphere and not so noisy that you can't carry on a conversation. The Happy Hour menu was reasonable and everything we tried was delicious. Regular menu consists of small bites but it too looked delicious ( not to mention the menu lights up when you open it - what a great idea!). Only drawback is the parking in north Cherry Creek - difficult to find a space, especially if you arrive before the stores have closed. Will definitely recommend to friends and plan to come back.

    My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant. Pros- Wine selection was robust and reasonably priced. It's important to note that you don't have the load a card. Your server is happy to bring you the selections if you don't want to partake in the meandering. The food was high for tapas but the portions were more than worth it. The cheese plate was large. Cons- The place is small and they fill it to the brim so people are falling over each other. The seating is awful. The two of us were seated in a couch area w-a coffee table. This is fine for finger food but not for eating a meal. The poor people next to us had 8 people at the same size table, which they clearly had not expected. Ask ahead for a regular table!

    Friendly and attentive service from beginning to end. I like the concept, it's new and trendy but if you do the math you will realize that you can drink twice as much for the same price if you get the full glasses instead of a bunch of 1.5 oz glasses.

    Stopped in for drinks and a light dinner recently on a trip to Denver. The ambiance is lovely, with comfy sofas, nice lighting and a large window to gaze out. The concept is interesting, with the opportunity to taste some wines without committing to a whole glass or bottle. We had a few tapas---the short ribs were amazing, but the crab cakes were not nice at all. The food in general was good, though we found some things too salty. All in all a lovely night.
