In 1969, a Vin Rouge would not exist in Durham when I was at Duke. But, in 2016, I sat across my beautiful and brilliant Duke daughter and enjoyed a remarkable meal. Her French onion soup and my potato with bacon rocked. My hangar steak...More

Located on 9th street. Small off-street parking lot. The decor is that of a cozy French country inn. Excellent service. We split the sweetbread appetizer. Entrees included the filet mignon, the boullabaise, and the salmon. All were excellent. Dessert was the chocolate torte, again outstanding.

We stumbled into this impressive contemporary French cafe quite by accident, but neither of us can resist trying a new one when the opportunity arises. The food was just exceptional, the service largely attentive. I would have scored Vin Rouge with another star had it...More

Hadn't eaten here in several years and wasn't disappointed. Everyone in our group was quite happy with their food, from appetizers and salads to main course. Wine was well priced. Waiter was a bit too casual, not well trained, but friendly none-the-less. We were there...More

I am not competent. The restaurant's manager is the only person able and supposed to answer your question. I suggest starting your inquiry on Vin Rouge Website. I am sure a gluten free dinner can easily be accommodated... More
