Food was great as was the service. Sitting outdoors is a bit noisy with the traffic but the food makes it worth it. I had the mushroom toast and my daughter had the stuffed french toast. This is my second visit to Vendome and certainly not my last.

Food was a mixture of very good and kinda blah. The tuna small plate is excellent, the beef tataki lacks flavour, the beet/goat cheese plate was disappointing.. The beets tasted just like beets but the goat cheese was almost non-existent and the pastry kinda doughy. The cured salmon was very good. Service is very good. Food doesn’t have enough oomph to bring me back from dinner.

Went for dinner service, got the truffle puffs and the whipped ricotta to start. They were both amazing, just wish there was a little more chips for the ricotta. Ordered the chicken for my main which was delicious as well, the people I was dining with got the Vendome burger and enjoyed it thoroughly. The croissant gelato was super creative and delicious, and the gelato trio was definitely fun because our server surprised us with the flavors.

The service was also good, just inconsistent with the service and having about 4-5 different servers throughout our dining experience.
There was apparently a new girl on bar that night, but was clearly doing a phenomenal job because all of the drinks we ordered were fabulous.

Definitely excited to try the day time menu!

Vendome

Hello, Thank you for the feedback. We have not made any recent changes in the kitchen, and have an amazing chef who has stepped up our culinary program at Vendome. Along with a huge renovation completed in the summer of 2020 allowing us to change from a cafe vibe to restaurant quality food. We hope you will give our menu another chance and will dine with us again.

Chef Alejandro has created an amazing array of dishes to tempt every palate. The truffle puffs, albacore tuna & beef tataki were fabulous. We were treated to a scallop dish that is not on the menu, but we hope it will be soon! The cocktails, wine and main dishes were also delicious. As always we had wonderful service by Rachel.

We loved every second of our evening at Vendome. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. She was always there when we needed her and she had good recommendations. We are 1 appy, 3 small plates, 2 mains and a dessert between the two of us. We went a little crazy but every dish was amazing especially the tuna small plate and the beets. The dessert was also really nice with lemon, fennel and basil. We can't wait to return!
