Overall I enjoyed our dining experience here. Our server was excellent, very knowledgeable of the menu. Apps, cheeses were great. For entrees we ordered the chicken and pork chop. The pork chop was DELICIOUS. Unfortunately the chicken was a quite dry/ overcooked, plain in flavor (the chicken itself) and not enough sauce to soak it in to salvage it (the sauce did have good flavor). If you're gonna do a simplistic rotisserie chicken in a slightly upscale restaurant (especially when there are only a handful of entrees to choose), you GOTTA be sure it's done right. Otherwise good experience, 4 stars.

I never write reviews but I had to this time. We ate brunch there today and my god, this is a hidden gem in downtown Durham. We were just walking by and decided to go in and we are so glad that we did! 5 stars isn’t enough. The food and service was immaculate!

Had dinner at the bar here on Saturday night. The Mac and cheese seemed more thin and watery compared to what I remember. Most of the cheese on top. Wondering if it was a bad night. Came just for that. Have been getting the Mac and cheese on and off for years. Just didn't seem the same.

A truly excellent experience every time we visit! I've never had a bad meal. Their servers are very well educated on the menu and wine list. The service is attentive without being intrusive. We have been with just a party of two up to a party of 12 and it is a 5 star visit without fail.

Absolutely incredible food!! Really enjoyed sitting at the bar for dinner. Tasty drinks and the food was so good! The mac n cheese is a must try - it’s a meal!! Finished off with some dessert that really hit the spot. Cool atmosphere, friendly service, and outstanding food makes this a must try in Durham!

Very popular and from what our waitress told us, there are lines waiting to get in when the school year starts. Our server was super friendly, and the kitchen staff is a well tuned machine. Outstanding fries with a large portion of lightly dressed greens come with all brunch dishes. My omelette was a little too wet for my taste however my husband's salad nicoise looked good. Eggs Benedict and the French toast looked very good as it was delivered to the customers.

Came for a meeting to Durham. Selected this French restaurant based on google reviews - some of them were greatest ever i read.However my experience did not turn out to be the same as theirs. I have had great flavors at French restaurants in San Francisco, Portland and Atlanta. Sat at bar for drink--5 Stars. Dinner review: 1. Service- 3 stars/ average. 2. Halibut fish- very very average. no flavors at all. I had to ask for extra pepper and table salt. 3. Green salad- 3 stars-the taste and presentation made me feel i was eating at some national chain restaurant- so casual and average and so unlike a great French restaurant. 4. Bread- hard and nothing great. 5. Olives and oil --5 stars. Nothing to come back here for.

I love to cook so we don't eat out a lot. But it was our wedding anniversary and my husband surprised me with reservations to Vin Rouge. It was fabulous...the service, the setting, the food...we loved it all. Because I enjoy cooking a wide variety cuisines, we are often disappointed on the infrequent occasions when we do eat out. Frankly, I believe most people don't cook and therefore over-rate mediocre food to the point where it seems online reviews are not necessarily reliable. But Vin Rouge is the real deal and everything you'd want in a special night out. We had eaten here in the past and enjoyed it, but it had been several years. So glad we returned and it was just as wonderful as I remembered. Highly recommend.

Great restaurant. Had the goat cheese tart and the Trout Almondine. Both were wonderful. Classic French bistro atmosphere with an authentic feel. Very comfortable dining. I'll definitely be back.

The staff was gracious and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious! I had the liver which was great and my husband really enjoyed the fish he had. Wine was perfect. The atmosphere and total experience was more than memorable. It was awesome. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Great place for brunch on Sunday. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. Loved sitting at the bar. The bartender was friendly and attentive on a busy morning.
