My husband and I were in town for a concert and went to Vin Rouge for brunch. Everything was fantastic! My eggs with smoked salmon was delicious and I could not stop eating the frites. Bloody Mary and French 75 drinks were made to perfection. Finally, the staff were super! Friendly, helpful and efficient. Smiles all around!
Had a great Sunday brunch here. The food was excellent and very well prepared. I wouldn't hesitate to do dinner next time we are in Durham. We opted to move to the back "red" room for a little less clamour. The front also got fairly smoky while we were eating. The hostess was on point in explaining these quirks to us before we were seated and was happy to accommodate.
Ate dinner here before show at Carolina Theater. The French Onion soup is fantastic and great cocktails!
Again our Valentine's Day +1 at Vin Rouge was wonderful. As always the food is superb and what we like is the perfect pacing of the meal. Fast food it is NOT :).
The valentines day meal was absolutely amazing, a very nice menu and the options were fantastic, they really covered all the bases for a wonderful valentines day meal. The staff was very friendly and quick, we got seated almost immediately and our food was out in no time. You only saw smiles from the fellow restaurant goers, and you left with a sense of joy and fulfillment from the wonderful flavors you just had. I will be returning as much as I can.
Amazing food and dessert, thought the tables were a little too close together though
Very good meal. Good basic salad, but not special. Salmon and steak fritte were very good. Dessert was excellent. Excellent service.
Once again, our meal at Vin Rouge was great. We've been going there for special occasions for many years, and are alway astounded that without fail their food is so consistently excellent. We love the place not only because of its food, but also because it is so much like an authentic French bistro. An important part of our beloved Durham.
I ordered Eggs Benedict Florintine -- the eggs were not warm and were more like hard boiled eggs. The person I was with also ordered Eggs Benedict -- his were over-cooked as well.
The fries & salad were good, but we wouldn't order Eggs Benedict there again.
The restaurant was crowded, seating was so close that you can basically participate in conversation of the people next to you. The service was sub optimal. It was her first time at a French restaurant, and the waitress had no concept of how to guide us through the menu. Overall disappointing. Seem like a place that should’ve been better than I was. Will not return oh by the way food was overpriced and poorly prepared.
