This was the place we chose for my 50th birthday dinner based on it appearing it various top restaurants of the world listings. We had the seven course degustation which came with little extras throughout and was very exceptional. We stayed in the Schloss as well so it was an all round experience and I can genuinely highly recommend a... More

A wonderful gastronomic lunch experience that was a delightful birthday treat. Admittedly, it wasn't as good as the 2 star restaurant we went to in Stockholm, but still, Vendome didn't disappoint. There was a lot of food for lunch ! The first course memorable and was buffalo ricotta and yoghurt with a ginger infusion ... the dairy elements mixed then... More

We traveled several hours and stayed in the hotel to experience Vendome. I want to be clear that is really is up and beyond the caliber of most restaurants. The menu was unique, well balanced and portions were hearty (compared to other 3 Michelin star restaurants). However the service was good but not impeccable. For example, the wine menu came... More

A wonderful experience, to be sure. My only regret is only sampling the lunch menu, when I'm sure the full dinner tasting would have been even more superb. The atmosphere was quiet and the decor beautifully modern. I thought the staff were great, particularly the maitre d' who spent time discussing food and fine dining with me, and comparing experiences... More

This restaurant has had 3 Michelin stars for 10 years and is one of the most amazing dining experiences my husband and I have enjoyed, and there have been many. The food is so well presented with some really excellent quirks to interest the diner. The menu does not prepare you for the gastronomic delights you will experience. Every dish... More

This was our first visit to Vendome. Even though we live in a different country, we want to go back! The dining room was very cosy and modern. The service was impeccable and still fairly down to earth for a restaurant of this caliber. We enjoyed the whole menu with their wine pairing (which is bottomless, might I add). Some... More

We had an excellent lunch there, atmosphere, view, service, interior, decorations are top notch. Although I can't say that I was too impressed with food, couple of dishes were just mind-blowing, but the rest were quite unbalanced. First compliment was huge and quite sweet, so all of us felt quite full after it which I think is not right at... More

We treated my father-in-law to dinner at Vendome for his 60th birthday. We chose to have the suggested menu, which was more than enough food.
