We tried this restaurant for the first time on a Sunday and went early enough (515) to avoid a wait. We started off with some nice wine and the meat/cheese plate. It was rather small-2cheeses and a fine mince of different meats, with 4 crostinis. The cheeses were nice, but the meat, while having a nice flavor, was full of... More

Several restaurants have failed in this location, but not this one! Positives are the sophistication of the food and the skill with which it is made, and the wine list and prices. The food is way above most of what Annapolis has to offer in terms of creativity and taste. I wish there were more main courses to choose among... More

The lines that form 30 minutes prior to opening says it all. This is one restaurant not to miss in Annpolis. Farm to table goodness with a changing seasonal menu. Oh, and a great seletion of beers and wine.

Their menu changes each quarter so sometimes you go back and one of your favorites is off the menu. But there are always new and exciting dishes. I would recommend this for a romantic evening or dinner with friends.

We knew Vin 909 didn't take reservations but thought we'd gamble for our anniversary dinner on a Saturday night. Got there around 6:40 pm and were told it would be an hour and a half for a table for two - pretty crazy. The place was mobbed so we left our name on the list and ran out to shop... More

This is one of my daughter and son-in-law's new finds. We enjoyed a glass of wine before being called for our table. They have a nice area outdoors to wait and the hostess comes to find you rather than calling out your name or buzzing your pocket...nice touch. We had a variety of foods: the chef's choice of meat and... More

We live on our boat and came down to Annapolis after 3 months in NYC. While there are many exceptional restaurants in NYC, the wine prices for a glass of wine, some barely drinkable, were outrageous! So when we ate at Vin909 with friends I was duly impressed with the drink menu featuring $6, $8 and $12 glasses of wine.... More

Imgave my friend some of my salad and she let me try her pizza. The pizza is wonderful, especially if you like thin crust! The dessert was... More

This local restaurant offers a vast selection of small plates, all of which are expertly prepared. But the pizza is extraordinary. While I work in DC and could get pizza there, I save my pizza splurge for Vin 909. The wine list is wonderful, an array of moderately priced wines. The owners are embracing, helping to select wines. Be aware:... More

Rolled into town and needed to find dinner. I love organic and local, and saw this place had that. But it was SO much more... Friendly, lively, excellent wood - fired pizza (San Daniele... Yum!!) and excellent sides of veggies... Sweet potatoes and golden beets. Heavenly. Plus, great craft beers for us (Seattle beer snobs). Wish I could go back!
