tremendous, phenomenal, amazing, unbelievable, ephemeral . . . o.k., ephemeral was a little over the top. really, this restaurant is a gem. the food is good, really good. and, the food is a wonderful backdrop to the ineractive wine experience. the staff are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and they welcome you to stay the entire evening. wine, appetizers, wine, sharing plates, wine, dessert wine, then a cab ride home. oh, and the bathrooms are spotless. so like I said, tremendous, phenomenal, amazing, unbelievable, ephemeral (yep, ephemeral works). visit vinue - and while you are there, say 'hey' to the chef (he is a pretty amazing guy).

This was a great stop - knocked my socks off, with 68 wines that I could sample at will. The decor was a bit too dark - some color would make this place ever better. Great service, the food was good, the selection of wines was amazing. Don't hide this treasure - brighten it up a bit, splash some blue, some red, put some spotlights on the wines.

The music was muddled, the speakers high up in the rafters instead of where we were sitting. I want to hear what I'm listening too, not simply aware of some droning drum beat set to a vaguely familiar floor beat. Hip isn't afraid - hip delivers. Fix the distance between the sound and the seats.

I always love going to Vinue - especially with somebody who has never been before. You can pick whichever wine you want, at whichever quantity you would like, whether it be a tasting, a half glass, or a full glass. I highly recommend this place.

Wine list was fantastic! They have everything from pretty mediocre wines all the way up to Opus One. Really cool "unique" sections.

When we were there, their gas lines went out so we weren't able to get our own tastings, which was really the reason why we went. I was really excited to try the card tasting, so I was really sad we couldn't do it.

The server was super apologetic and gave us tastes of anything we wanted, but it was really tough and the prices were very misleading.

But we had such a nice little app and delicious tasting, nonetheless.

As far as trying new wines, this is the place to go. Didn't know it existed. Went there on a whim. Awesome experience. Some of the wines can get pricey. But hey, where else can you "try" so many wines. And expensive wines that you probably wouldn't buy. Great place!!! Can actually talk to each other across the table. And I now have a new favorite wine!!

Was my 2nd visit to Vinue. Was a Friday night around 6:00pm but was extremely uncrowded. I guess people come here for some late night gathering with friends or romantic date. Great wine selection so it's definitely for wine lovers.

We tried Venue for the first time this evening and loved it. The wine list and options to taste or get half/full servings makes it very easy to choose a wine you will like. I do think the cost to taste a wine, which equates to at least a few dollars for a few sips is a bit pricey, but the concept is great. Also, the food is really tasty. We ordered several food servings and their Colorado Sliders are the best I have ever had. They include melted cheese, bacon and a sauce that absolutely wowed me! We are already planning our next visit in a couple weeks with friends coming into town.

This was a fun and tasty experience. The wine selection was large and the concept of using a 'debit card' to have small tastes of wines in entertaining and interesting. The food was delicious. Our wait staff person was awesome; informed, checked back at the right times, had a good sense of humor and knew the menu very well without being overbearing about it. Definitely a place I will return to.

My wife just returned from a deployment round in Iraq the morning of our reservation and Vinue could not have made the evening any more special. Everything was perfection from the food to the wine to the atmosphere. We had a special request that they delivered beautifully, and the cheesecake was, no joke, the best I've ever had. An absolute must for anyone who enjoys wine, atmosphere and a lovely dining experience. Thanks so much!

I know it's odd to go to a wine tasting bar for a meal but we love the tapas and small plates at Vinue. The charcuterie tray and cheese tray are excellent. The hummus plate is fantastic. We have tried everything on the menu and it's all good. Just keep ordering small plates until you are full. The only problem is if you aren't drinking wine, your only other option is water. They have no iced tea or anything else to drink. And they have no coffee for after dinner. I would think it wouldn't be that hard for them to repair their coffee machine and to offer hot coffee and tea as well as some options for those not drinking.

Vinue is a hot spot with a spectacular wine list. Great ambiance and menu. I have gone to Vinue both with friends and business partners. The only negatives I have about Vinue is it is a tad pricey and I have had very inconsistent service. Some of the waiters are great, while others are severely lacking in tact. Located in a great part in Cherry Creek, but parking at prime times can be a problem. Vinue is definitely a place to be seen, so be sure to dress up! My favorite menu items are the hummus, flatbreads and of course cheese plate. If you're still hungry after grabbing some vino and snacks at Vinue, head downstairs to Mechete and order some amazing street tacos (I have obviously done this before)!

The concept of a wine vending machine is great, and they have a great selection. However they were understaffed and had only 1 gal working the whole front end of the restaurant and tending bar. The food order was incorrect and the bill that was presented was incorrect. They happily and quickly remedied both situations. Great idea, but needed another employee!

My date and I had a light meal "tapas" size servings of hummus, ceviche, and braised short-ribs. Our host was decent but distracted, and introduced the concept to us in a confusing way. The wine selection is decent, yet the single glass prices too high to sample much. I suppose the half glass is a better option but they're a price-wise gouge. The food was bland and we never finished the short-ribs as they tasted like they were under hot-lights all day (i.e., weirdly moist but dry). The ambiance was pleasant, but there's so many other places better than this.

I love this place! I had only been one other time and they recognized me when I came back in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I love the setup, you can pre-load a card with however much money you want, then use the machines to get either a sample, half glass, or full glass. There are also descriptions in front of each wine and I like that you can see the bottles! So fun for a date, get together, or great place to take someone from out of town! Love it!!!
