    They need to put a thing over there entry to block the cold. They have a lounge seating area right when you enter, and every time the door opens, it s a waft of cold air. I never took my jacket off. It needs one of those tent like vestibules that you enter, before entering the actual door. Also the service could have been better. They are charging top dollar for wine and the service doesn't warrant those high prices. I will go back, but I'll be sure not to sit in the front by the entry door. (in Summer not an issue) In colder Fall and Winter, it is a problem!

    Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting RoomResponded on November 13, 2022Thank you for your feedback Lovedy. I am sorry you felt it too cold and wish I had known of your discomfort during your visit because we do have blankets to help remedy this issue. As far as the wine pricing, we actually charge less than the industry norm, but we do offer boutique, unicorn wines you won't be able to find anywhere else. We don't include service charges within that pricing and am sorry you feel that our food and value fall below standard but will do better on your next visit.

    The owner and staff are absolutely amazing! I love how they make wine drinking a full experience. For those less experienced in wine, they are so good about dressing it down in a really approachable fashion and providing as much or as little education you seek in the matter. It's just always a really good time, a great environment, and incredible selection of wines and beer!

    wine was ok, waitress did not come check on us enough. We had empty wine glasses and finally had to get up and ask for service at one point. experience was disappointing compared to what we had heard

    Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting RoomResponded on October 27, 2022I am so sorry to hear this. No excuse, but looking at this evening it was a busy service with limited staffing and I'm sorry this impacted you in any way. I'd love if you'd give us another chance to show you the service you deserve and that everyone talks about. Since this review was anonymous, I'm unfortunately not able to reach out to you directly so if you'd be so kind as to reach out to me to rectify, I'd really appreciate it.

    My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary and had the best time. We got the wine flights and Mell was an amazing sommelier. We let her pick truffles for us and Omg I can’t stop thinking about the blue cheese truffle. Go and enjoy the experience. You won’t regret it.

    Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting RoomResponded on October 27, 2022Thank you for sharing your experience with future guests! I'm sorry for my delayed response but Happy Anniversary!!! The truffles will be on our menu for a very long time, including the riesling/blue cheese truffle made with a 2015 Holloran from my personal travels to Willamette. It always feel special to share something special in our wine life with special people like you. Jenn

    They didn’t have our reservation when we arrived, and therefor didn’t receive my message through open table, which all turned out ok since we were about the only people in there. The charcuterie cheeses were presented beautifully but the taste wasn’t that memorable. The ambiance is cool, and I loved that they offered NA drink options too.

    This place was awesome. We were visiting from Texas and the ladies here were so nice and really took the time to explain all the wines, have conversations, let me taste before pouring me a whole glass. They had great snacks - we had popcorn, aged cheddar and chocolate. I wish I asked for their names so I could put them in this review but they were great. I would definitely recommend and if I come back to Denver, I will make another reservation for here!

    Vin Rouge is absolutely adorable inside with beautiful finishes and attention to detail. Then add the amazing wine lists coupled with the comprehensive wine knowledge from Jenn, the owner, and you are in for a real treat. Whether you're a wine connoisseur or not, you'll be delighted at the many offerings they have, but do yourself a favor and ask Jenn for recommendations and you will NOT be disappointed. Jenn will help guide you by asking you simple questions about what you like in an approachable (and non-pretentious) way that may lead to something you've never tried or didn't know you liked. This is an absolute gem of a neighborhood wine bar and the best you will find in town. It's a great spot for date night, girl's night out, grabbing a glass of wine with friends, or just sitting at the bar by yourself as you experience amazing wines in a beautiful space.

    Pleasant atmosphere, friendly/knowledgeable staff, food was average and over priced, wine glass pours were, to be kind, not generous.

    Vin Rouge Wine Bar & Tasting RoomResponded on January 24, 2022Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us and others. We appreciate your kind words about our team. I'm sorry you were not pleased with our food and wine pours and would like to assure you that every single person receives a full 5 ounce pour and is measured with a carafe. This is a standard size pour in the industry but due to the style of our beautiful hand-blown glasses, it may appear like you are getting a smaller portion than you are. I hope we exceed expectations next time.
