We felt the tables were too small for our group and placement was at the door. Not great for flights and food.

Always a wonderful experience. Service is exceptional, tapas and share plates great and wine selection excellent. Happy hour wines are very good and make for excellent value and a chance to try new wines.

We sat at the bar, the bartender was awesome. Very knowledgeable about their wine selection and managed to create a wine tasting based on what we like.
We will be back!

We love visiting the Vin Room for dinner, we are never disappointed. The only thing that I would change is the seating arrangements. Tables for 2 are situated so that you are sitting side by side, both facing the same direction and very close proximity to the next table over. I personally prefer to sit across the table from my company and be a little bit more distant from the people next to us.

I go to Vin Room relatively regularly: girls nights, get togethers and date nights with my husband. I always love the food and overall ambiance, however two of the last four times, service wasn’t to the standards I’ve experienced there.

Usually, our server is always SUPER knowledgeable on the wines. I enjoy wines but am not overly knowledgeable on them. So, when I asked a question on a particular Merlot on the flight, the server told me she didn’t know about it and had never even tasted it. She then had to go and ask about it. She wasn’t able to answer my question as to how it compares to other Merlots, since I usually prefer one that isn’t to “tanniny”. Her answer was “It’s not an entry-level prices Merlot, so it should be good.” But price has nothing to do with the tannin levels. I decided to try the flight and I did enjoy the Merlot, so I now have one I can add to my repertoire.


We then decided to order food so I ordered a flight of bubbly with some oysters. Normally, the glasses are positioned in the order they should be drunk, from left to right. I didn’t pay attention as I picked up the second glass, and as soon as I took a sip, realized I was drinking a Muscato. It was unfortunate because it completely ruined my last glass, which was much drier and it ruined the taste. I let our waitress know of my recommendation and she said she didn’t realize what order they were in.

I usually love going to Vin room because I get to try new wines and learn from the servers, who I expect to be much more knowledgeable than me since my knowledge is quite limited.

I will give it another try and hope that these were unusual circumstances and that servers learn about the wines they are selling.

Service was incredibly slow, took about an hour for cheese, crackers, and oysters..wine selection was mediocre but the place was really warm and inviting..probably wouldn't recommend this place though.

It was great at 1st but when it came to dessert and getting the bill it seemed like we were forgotten.

I would go again but that was not impressive. Otherwise it was great.

The service was exceptional. The staff was very knowledgable on wines and fine dining. The charcuterie was tasty and well-presented, the meat and cheese was perfectly paired, and the quantity of food was suitable for two. We really enjoyed the evening and will return. Thanks!

I took my dad here to treat him to a nice night out. He really likes share plates and good wine. We were however disappointed in the share plates. They were out of the meat platter at 7pm which was discouraging but it happens. The food was good, nothing to really write home about however. The wine and the service were great though.

I've been to the VIN a few times now. It is a good place for a quiet date. Wine, dim lights, cozy furniture. I would not recommend it for the food due to the extremely small size portions. We had to order a few things and we still were not full. We went to earls across the street after for some yam fries and dessert after.

Upstairs provides a quiet more intimate space than the main floor which is brighter and louder. Our server was exceptional, appropriately attentive offering suggestions and insights. We enjoyed 2 customized flights of wine for sampling. Tapas as smaller plate sharing allowed opportunity for trying more items. We had 4 tasty savoury plates plus 2 delicious desserts for the two of us. A lovely alternative dining experience.

We've been to Vin before as it's a casual, comfortable and cool place to relax w a drink and some food. However this last visit was a disappointment. The costs must have increased and food quality decreased. My wife and I and our 2 adult sons shared a bottle and a half of wine, and ordered about 6 or 7 food plates. Bill was $240! We'll think twice before spending that kind of money for snacks.

The patio in Mission was perfect, even for a hot day. The trees and umbrella provided the perfect amount of evening shade. I ordered the charcuterie platter (3) and it was pretty small for $18. I was able to get gluten free crackers, however, so that was a nice option.

Food was really good, our waitress was really nice, made us feel like home and took good care of us. She as really careful with allergies or special diets.
I know it's a wine bar but I used my daughter's birthday as an excuse to catch up with my friends (single mom so not a lot of time free), it was a perfect moment with tasty food and delightful wine until a waiter from another table was rude with me and almost stepped on my daughter on purpose.
