Since Vin Rouge had come highly recommended both by friends and by most of the Trip Advisor reviewers, we were looking forward to our first dinner there. Disappointing is perhaps the kindest word I can use. I love good French sauces, but here the sauces are overpowering. "Now what am I eating below this? Fish, fowl?" I never order grilled... More

It's worth the ride no matter where you live so make arrangements, get a DD and go! The food in this restaurant is authentic and outstanding. We had Shrimp Provençal and the Salad with friend egg is to die for! We sat at the bar and the bartender and is drinks are outstanding! Great variety on the menu, nice specials.... More

I love steak, therefore, it has to be done correctly. I wouldn't say it was done correct or incorrect; you decide...I ordered it medium rare. In some places it was medium rare, other places it was medium. I ordered a salad and paid the $2 extra to have it split between me and another at my table. Then I was... More

We enjoyed three appetizers for our table of five that included the celebrated Mac and cheese (it really is as good as everyone says), a plate (a bit on the course side) and bacon confiture, rich with carmelized onions. All delicious, but probably one too many given the size of the entrees. For the main course our table had the... More

My husband and I have eaten here 2-3 times a year for the past 5 years and have never been disappointed. Food is always good. Desserts are divine. One time we disagreed with the amount of salt the kitchen had applied to a dish and the kitchen remade the dish quickly and without debate. Don't miss out on the tried... More

Took my family to Vin Rouge for Sunday brunch, and we all ((7 of us) enjoyed it. First, the place was packed, and we had a short wait, which was worth it. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's, and excellent coffee. Excellent menu including various versions of Eggs Benedict or omelets. Each of us tried different choices and all pronounced them very... More

I was driving up to Durham with my wife as we had tickets to a concert at Carolina Theater and wanted a nice dinner. Vin Rouge was a great choice.

I had extremely high expectations for this restaurant. The overall experience was hectic and choppy. The service was friendly the meals a mixed bag. I am a good cook so I tend to order foods that "I can't get at home." Imordered calf's liver. I was asked for my desired degree of doneness. I stated medium. It was well done... More
