We eat here often. Very busy last night but service was very good. Had the fresh oysters, a real treat!! My husband had the hamburger and fries and really enjoyed it. My steak was perhaps a little skinny but very tender and tasty. Wine selection is always interesting and changing. Will definitely be back!!

The staff are fenomenal, they are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Patrick was our server, Phoebe the owner came by to our table and chatted with us, and the chef as well, he came around and make sure everything was good and thanking us for coming. The food was delicious too, but those experience from the staff make our visit more remarkable and memorable. I really recommend this place

I h ad a dinner with my family. Siting is quick. No customers around 5:40. We had some food from happy hour time. All of them are ok, but my big son had a grill cheese with a plastic cover inside the grill cheese.for dinner menu, we had a salad, rack of lamb and 3A steak. The steak is over cooked. I never had such thin steak. Too bad for all . Never come back. Goodbye.

The evening/experience was pleasant but not exceptional. Food was tasty. Good menu choices, probably better than average. Ambiance was more casual than the prices would suggest. Table spacing due to COVID took away from the ambiance. The service was friendly and responsive.

Food was very good. We had 12 Oysters, crab cakes and flat bread. Crab cakes were on the small side but good. Flat bread was very good. Service was spotty.

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.

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.
