Overall a great visit. A slight hiccup between hostess and waiter initially, but cured to our satisfaction. We’ll be back.

Oh my gosh. From the start my wife and I were utterly impressed by Vin de Set. Even just the French bread with herb butter that they brought to the table was amazing. I wanted to eat the dollop of butter like it was a Lindt truffle.
The service was outstanding, there was nothing that I needed that I didn't have, but also was not overwhelmed by constant check-ins. Our server Patricia was friendly and extremely helpful in making decisions about what to get. Her recommendation of the crab beignets was definitely the right call.
When my seafood bisque hit my mouth, I was ready to ask for it in a 32oz to go cup with a straw, because I could enjoy that soup forever! The ratatouille ravioli was perfectly done. You would be hard pressed to find a better cooked pasta. The involuntary laugh I gave out at the first bite of Angus steak was just pure joy (followed by a handful of expletives about just how damn good it was).
My only regret is that as full as we were, there just wasn't room for dessert.

We sat on the patio and it was very noisy. Our waitress was very nice. My fish came cold and the recipe was very disappointing. When we arrived I asked for information about the party venue and we were told by the person whom we spoke to to access our reservation that he would get us the card for the event manager and that never happened. We have had better experiences there in the past.

Reserved an early Saturday night dinner at 6 pm. It was almost empty but we got seated on the windowless side right across from the kitchen door. Probably the worst table available. People going in and out of the restrooms, servers going in and out through the swing kitchen door with the smell of maybe dishwashing or some other cleaning product wafting in. Servers were very nice and polite but almost too attentive.
Food sounded incredible but was mediocre, the appetizer "tart" (can't remember the exact name) was the worst - doughy and tasteless.
We do love Vin de set for ambiance and the summer time on the roof and the bar is very charming but .. it needs improvement for what it really is. Especially considering St. Louis food scene. I would only recommend it for cocktails on the roof.

I wrote a review for Vin de Set on January 22, 2019. I wrote in my review that "my filet came out with a big glob of cold stuff on top. I mentioned it to the server but nothing was done. I figured out that it was the blue cheese accompaniment to the fillet. It had obvious been pre-made and placed on the fillet but never heated so that it would melt." I took my daughter and her friend to Vin de Set on Saturday, March 16. She ordered the same fillet as I had ordered in January. You guessed it! It was served with the same big blob of cold stuff on top.

As I said in my previous review "everyone makes a mistake. It is how that mistake is handled that shows the quality of the restaurant." Obviously, the problem has not been corrected. Furthermore, the quality of the meals was not what we have previously been served. I have come to wonder if the restaurant is not sliding a bit.

We were looking forward to our dining expeience. However, none of the food ordered was good. The escargot was extremely salty. I ordered crepes and you had to dig through food that was salty and inapprpriate for a chicken crepe. My grandson ordered the trought. Again not edible. The manager did come over and asked what the problem was with the food. It was a ne
w menu. He was very nice and did comp one of the meals. I have been to vin de set on other occasions and loved the food. Either they have a new chef or people in the kitchen who can't cook. The best thing on the menu was the dirty martinis. Even the creme brulee was cold. It was tasty but cold
Very disappointed.

I took my girlfriend here for lunch to celebrate out anniversary and we loved it! The staff was outstanding, very knowledgeable and courteous. The food was delicious. Personally I recommend the beef bourguignon (great for leftovers too). They gave us an anniversary toast with a lovely card. We have to return there. It was perfect.

The 3 onion soup and mixed salad were very good. We ordered two different seafood main courses and both had a degree of blandness that we weren't expecting. Dessert was a cheesecake that was over the top in richness and covered in to much sauce. We spent about 10 minutes in between courses with empty cocktail and water glasses, and bread was offered but never delivered. The ambiance and service overall was good, however. Hostess was very energetic and had a great attitude. This was our second time here and there's probably not a great chance of us coming back for anything other than brunch.

Escargot was very good. The Duck crepes were tasty but the duck was tough- not tender at all. Onion soup very good except my soup was delivered with a burnt crostini on top. It should have never left the kitchen that way. We both ordered the beef entree which was apparently the best choice on the menu and it too was tough. Server was awesome! She made up for the sub par food.

We’ve enjoyed vin de set in the summer, it’s nice to sit outdoors above the city. The winter though is another matter. The enclosed patio had little, if any charm. Additionally the wait staff seemed somewhere between distracted and inattention. While ordering the waiter paused to have a conversation with a coworker and then turned back to us. The escargot and cocktails were very nice. The salads were drowning in dressing. I had the duck confit for dinner which was dry and over cooked. Perhaps a nice place to come on a nice day and have a drink, but I don’t see myself returning for anything more than that.

We have eaten at Vin de Set many times before and this time was the first disappointment we've had. My wife's meal was fine but I had meat and Yukon potatoes which the meat was perfect but the Yukon potatoes were dry. We had a 5:00 reservation and my assumption was that these potatoes were left from the day before and unfortunately there wasn't enough Peppercorn sauce to counter act or make up for the dry potatoes. I did not say anything but should have because this was not up to the standards we are used to. Because we have had good experiences at Vin de Set and Eleven Eleven Mississippi, we will go back. But if this happens again, there are plenty of other good restaurants in St. Louis to spend my money.

We hadn't been in years, just 'off of our radar'. We will definately be back. Really appreciated how quiet it was. The lighting was a bit dim for our older eyes to read the menu. Service couldn't have been better.
We found the crepes (duck a l'orange and apple kale) to be outstanding. Beef bourginion very good, tho could have used more sauce. Creme brulee among the top 3 I've had anywhere, and I order it a lot.
Thanks for a lovely evening

One of our favorite go to spots for date night. Normally the food and service are excellent. This night was a little off. The ravioli dish my wife ordered was extra salty. We mentioned this to the waitress who dismissed it and made no apology or adjustment. When we were ready to close out the waitress asked us if we wanted separate checks? It was a Saturday night, not an afternoon lunch? Our experience is normally much better and everyone is entitled to an off night so we will definitely return and expect much better the next time.

I favorably impressed my business associates by taking them to this restaurant. The bar is beautiful, but it was surpassed by the quality and presentation of the meals and the quality of the service. I would recommend this place to anyone Who wants to experience fine dining in a relaxed, subdued, quiet, charming atmosphere.

The food was overpriced. We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer and expected more than three small mushroom caps with cheese and bacon fill, for 13 dollars. I had there special 7oz sirloin over mash with carrots and a side of asparagus with hollandaise. Why is rosemary used on steaks now? It was edible but I would not order it again. The temp was correct but just not to my taste overall.
My wife had the beef bourguignon. Good flavor just "dry" tasting. The onion soup was good.
Who in the hell charges 28 dollars a glass for Lagavulin 16 year Scotch? 100 dollar bottle of Scotch and you are charging 28 dollars a two oz pour.
Desserts we're good. The cheesecake was mascarpone cheese, apple and caramel sauce was DELIGHTFUL!
Overall nice place, ok food, overpriced drinks and one great dessert. Go to Hamilton's Urban Steakhouse across the street and come back to Vin De Set for dessert.
I will definitely give it one more chance for their Sunday brunch but will be hard pressed to spend 150.00 on a mediocre meal.
