My husband and I spent a night in Annapolis before heading to DC to see the Cherry Blossoms. After reading the reviews we decided to walk to Vin 909 for dinner. Tucked in a residential neighborhood we would never cook if we lived here. Very friendly staff and wonderfully prepared food. We were lucky to get seats in front of... More

Plan ahead to beat the crowds. Be prepared because the hospitality from the owners isn't the warmest. The food is excellent, the wine offering rather limited (for a wine cafe), atmosphere good, and the service good (especially if you are a local and repeat customer). They have a lot of limiting rules, no call in orders for pick up, will... More

Have eaten here twice now. Everything has been wonderfully, from innovative small plates to the pizzas and desserts. Pizzas are the best around, thin and crispy crust. Not overloaded with cheese and oozing grease. Solid wine list and microbrews. Great service. Be prepared to wait an hour or more unless you get there at least 15 mins before doors open.... More

We had a great dinner at Vin 909! The food and the atmosphere were absolutely amazing. We started with the Chef's selection of cheeses and meats (yes, the amount and variety is a little bit disappointing) and went on with the veal special and pork bellies (no words to describe an awesome taste palate of both). Looking forward to come... More

Arrived at 7:00 and had about a half hour wait - it was well worth it. A good, varied wine selection with some unusual selections. Appetizers - especially the homemade cheese was great. Loved the brick oven pizzas with a thin crust so they don't fill you up! Highly recommend.

Great dining and unique menu. Get there early to get a table without a wait. Food is all fresh and local with unique features and options. Fun And relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend highly but is a little pricey.

We recently moved back to the Annapolis area and have eaten at Vin 909 three times in the last couple months. Great food and excellent service sums up every visit. The staff is very friendly and professional. Don't hesitate to ask the server for a food or wine recommendation. They are very knowledgable and haven't steered me wrong yet. We... More

First rate! Great local sourced food. Small plates of seasonal dishes. Brick oven pizza that is topped with the ever changing seasons too! Wines by the glass. Makes it fun to try new vintages. Vibrant little restaurant. Nice small bar area. Line up to get in!

This is by far one of my favorite places to eat. It is so much fun to go with several friends and be able to sample all the various appetizers and small plates. It can be very noisy and loud sometimes but it's fun. Be there by 5:00-5:15 or you will have a wait no matter what day of the... More
