Jonathan made our Christmas date night extra special with amazing service, expert descriptions/recommendations on both food and wine, and a couple extras he threw in to make our night the best experience we've had in awhile. Thanks Jonathan and Vin Rouge for the top notch experience. We'll be back as usual (and everyone reading this should be too)!!

Everything about Vin Rouge is just the best. The service is impeccable every time. I've never had anything here that wasn't prepared perfectly. I prefer the indoor dining experience more than the patio, but that's just because of how good the restaurant smells on the inside. I always recommend Vin Rouge to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion because they are so gracious and kind.

The service was amazing, as was the food. I would recommend the know now cocktail. The steak was good. I've had better, but I do not say that to be disparaging. The open shell oysters were surprising. I do not usually indulge, but I tried them and I was pleasantly surprised. Will I go again, of course.

Absolutely amazing - while you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, Clare’s eyes lit up when she described the pork chop. I consider myself a pork chop snob and she convinced me to try it, and it did not disappoint. Truly a hidden gem on the menu. Great wine list as well as bourbon at good prices. Oysters fabulous and also fairly priced. We ate at the bar and Clare and Spencer were so hospitable (as were the customers). It’s now saved as a favorite!

We had brunch here yesterday and there were four of us trying Vin Rouge for the first time..The interior of the restaurant is charming and the service is excellent without being overbearing. I had the mussels, two people had the eggs with smoked salmon and one had the crepes. I absolutely loved the mussels and everyone enjoyed the food. Cocktails were great..I look forward to coming back to this lovely restaurant

We loved our experience at Vin Rouge. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, helpful, and just the right level of checked-in to our meal. We will definitely return the next time we are in Durham. Update: We did return!! And it was just as good, if not better! They took my dietary restrictions very seriously, and the menu is very friendly boasting whole foods. The price is too low for such an amazing meal.

This place truly deserves all 5 stars, I went here for my birthday and had such a wonderful time! I recommend going with friends as there's so much variety between the all the different dishes. Definitely go for the foods that sounds adventurous, as they are absolutely delicious. Great for celebrations and dates, doesn't not disappoint!

I was glad that I finally decided to come to Vin Rogue for dinner. Our server, Jason, was great and provided some great recommendations. We ordered appetizers, entrees and dessert. The escargot and sweetbreads were both full of flavor and were a great start. We then ordered the chicken with tarragon and Dijon sauce and the poisson du jour, which was seared scallops Provençal. Both were refreshing and had so much flavor. The chicken was juicy and the scallops were cooked just right, and not tough like some places. Overall this was a very pleasant meal and were were glad to finish it off with some excellent chocolate mousse. I’m already looking forward to my next meal here!

We already knew Vin Rouge to serve some of the most delicious food in the Triangle (in our opinion), but now we know they are also the most incredible event host as well. Vin Rouge helped us host our wedding reception in their incredibly beautiful Garden Patio space. From day one, Meredith, the event coordinator, was amazing to work with. She was patient, kind, full of ideas and suggestions. She was also accepting of our budget and given that, worked with us to bring our wedding day vision to life. Our wedding reception exceeded both my husband and my expectations. From the food, to the drinks, to the service, to the physical space itself, to the patience Meredith and every one of the waitstaff had with us when our schedule got off-kilter, we felt so incredibly welcome and loved the whole night. We feel so grateful Vin Rouge was willing to be a part of our big day. And we know where we will be celebrating the anniversary of our marriage from this day forth.

Vin Rouge is one of my favorite reception spaces in Durham. It's feels intimate even for larger parties, is a perfect backdrop to feel transported to France. The food is divine and they treat vendors with the most respect. I love shooting weddings here and recommend it as a reception location for my couples.
