Best restaurant in Annapolis

I don't usually go to places that have a 45 minute wait but I make an exception for Vin 909. Creative & delicious artisanal pizzas. Casual atmosphere. Always packed but if the weather is nice relax and have a glass of wine or 2 on the lawn while you wait.

A perfect meal with excellent service. Our pizzas and salad were wonderful and the waitstaff across the board were great. We also loved the wine recommendations. We lucked out going in on a Tuesday at about 5:30 or so so there was no wait. I'm glad we were seated on the back patio because by the time we left the... More

The restaurant is located in a cute residential area. They do not take reservations. BUT there is a permanent line, the place is full (and not only on week-ends!).which is perfectly understandable. The food is excellent (great clams with baguette). They serve small plates that you can share (like tapas). Their pizzas are huge and famous (tip: they are large.... More

We went at 1 on Friday afternoon, and had anticipated a wait as other reviews stated, but we sat right down. We sat on the porch and it was a beautiful view. We had the crab roll & stuffed squash as an app, both delicious! Then had the white pizza, which was amazing and so full of flavor. Pot de... More

There is a reason this place is so popular! Awesome service, absolutely delicious food! Cool place, nice decor. On a Beautiful summer evening it's even better! They don't accept reservations but you give your name and cell number and they text you. We had a 45 min wait but had a beer while we waited, so not a big deal.... More

The flatbreads are fresh, fabulous and always creative. The wines are very reasonably priced and a great selection to explore. There are always new seasonal specials to try that are sure to be amazing. Don't forget to save room for dessert! Only negative is the wait for a table but it's worth it.

Our wait was about 55 minutes. You can get a bottle of wine and stand at the bar or a nearby table. Glasses also are allowed outside. Great wine selection-duh. My cousin and I had a nice Rhone red. We were surprised the menu was very light fare-no big meat-n-potatoes meals. Our app was a prosciutto-like pile of meat, accompanied... More

This is the best restaurant in Annapolis, bar none. My wife and I are locals, and Vin 909 is our first choice and recommendation for any out-of-town visitors. We also tend to go here at least once a week---usually a cheese platter as well as pizza. We simply cannot speak more highly of the food, the staff, and the experience.... More

No one can beat Vin 909's pizza or crab roll. The menu changes regularly based on what's in season. The food is inventive and original. The Heirloom Tomato Cheesecake with whipped cream is the way Cheesecake should have tasted all along, who knew? The seafood dishes and salads are always fresh and yummy. Thank goodness the Owner and Chef studied... More

My husband and I had lunch here today. This is a local place for us that we visit regularly and it is always packed, always requires a wait for lunch or dinner. No reservations accepted but it is definitely worth the wait. Vin 909 is essentially a wine bar with a wide variety of wines at a wide array of... More
