Vin Room is awesome for a nice evening out. The drinks, food and service were excellent. Even better is how dog-friendly they've made the patio. Our little guy was spoiled with a treat box, bottle of "petsecco" (e.g. h2o), and dog bed.

On patio for lunch. Good service. Pleasant atmosphere. Food was good. Two of us had burgers and they accommodated our request for no buns but lettuce wraps.
Crab cakes were excellent. Nice selection of wine by the glass. Very pleasant lunch

We ended up spending the afternoon on the patio rather than inside. It was a great spot to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon. The food and wine selections were good, and the quality was first rate. The servers were attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our lunch at VIN Room! I had a flight of Rose and my friend had the Sangria- both very tasty. Tried the Sesame Steak bite, Cauliflower tempura and the flatbread- all delicious and just the right amount of food. Will definitely go there again.

As always, we enjoy the patio with appetizers, meals, drinks etc. It is such a great place. We loved the steak bites, crab cakes, lamb and Japanese chicken dish. Vin Room is top notch.

This was a great place for a date night.

The restaurant was quiet (it was a Sunday night). The staff were great with the service and attention to my wife's allergies.

The wine was exceptional as always.

Really hot and want a cool brew? They also have a nice selection of beer to enjoy on their patio.

Cool to see that our canine friends are welcomed on the patio and get free treats.

Ambience was nice, restaurant is nice, clean and well spaced out.

Overall experience was below average. Waitress was limited in her attentiveness, interaction and overall serving process.

We ordered an appetizer (pork belly lettuce wraps), which were decent enough but minimal in portions and dwarfed by lettuce leafs.

Our mains were lacking overall - rib-eye dinner (ordered medium rare) which was served more like medium well and very salty. Potatoes were basic and lacked emphasis. Second main - lamb, over cooked and lacked flavour for such a rich meat.

Quite disappointed for the price point and positive reviews that enticed us for date night. Was not worth the money spent compared to other restaurants with better overall quality and experience.

If we return it would be for a glass of wine and appetizer only.

Having reserved 10 days in advance our expectation as a frequent customer was that we would be seated at out 6pm time.
Upon arrival 10 minutes in advance - it was immediately apparent that our reservation was lost.
After finding a chair we were stuck in the entry corridor.
The waiter was non-responsive to three requests to relocate. Several walk-in parties of two were subsequently seated at tables for four.

We are anticipating that whatever issue was being experienced will be rectified.

Four of us decided to dine here on Thursday night. We had an array of appetizers complemented by delicious wine. All of the food was excellent. The portions were perfect for 4 except for the lobster nachos which were smaller than expected. The fresh oysters were a highlight. From PEI they were delightful, very fresh and the perfect size. Service was excellent as was the “energy” in the restaurant. A 10 out of 10 evening!

Visiting the Vin Room is like being welcomed home. Not only is the food and service outstanding, but we were treated like valued members of the family coming home for dinner. Their COVID protocols are outstanding and it is wonderful to be out and feel safe.

We had a reservation and were seated in the loft area which had very little ambience and more of a cafeteria feel. Service was fine, nothing above average. My dinner of Beef Wellington was good however, my spouse had the Japonese fried chicken which was very one dimensional and frankly disappointing. Overall value for the money we spent was not there.

Great meal and service at Vin Room West. Pride in their food and the work they do. Do great job in social distancing and keeping the place safe for patrons. Had the duck and my wife had the lamb. Both were outstanding. Had fun with the wine flights. We got both the white and red options and was a great way to try out some new stuff. Our server had great knowledge and was able to help us select some great wines based on his recommendations. Would definitely go again.
