The only restaurant in town

This is the only place in Annapolis where you can enjoy original dishes prepared with organic ingredients. It is very popular and you have to be there 15 min before they open or stay on a list for 1:30 to get a table. Unfortunately they do not take reservations.

The doors open at 5 pm for evening dining and there is always a line. You can eat modestly with a beverage and flatbread and have a delightful time without breaking the bank. The original seating is limited so an outdoor section has been added - enclosed and heated. It's adequately comfortable on all but the coldest days. Dress is... More

Clearly the best restaurant in the Annapolis area. It's so good, the next best restaurant isn't even close. The one problem is they do not accept reservations, the restaurant is small, and they are packed so the waits are very long. It's still worth the wait. They open at 5:00 pm and the line starts queuing at 4:30 pm.

I was pulled into this restaurant by all the great reviews. I was so disappointed. First off, the restaurant was really cold. Not just me, but pretty much everyone wore their coats as they ate. We ordered a pizza because they have gotten such rave reviews. Maybe I caught it on a bad day? It was burned and very tasteless.... More

I have been to Vin 909 now several times for dinners on varying nights and for lunch as well. I can't think of enough good things to say. The service has always been beyond good, but the food is the star of the show. If you get the Chocolate Pot Du Crème for dessert, you won't ever forget it. The... More

Its hard to figure out how many stars to give this restaurant. The food was carefully prepared and generally excellent, the portions are good for a small bites place, the prices are very high. We started with the chef's selection starter and a pizza, the selection was interesting, 2 nice cheeses, a ripe but crisp pear quarter, a prosciutto pate... More

Fantastic experience with each bite, well worth the wait! Each pizza was a treat and the appetizers were quickly served and left nothing to be desired. The chocolate pot is a not to be missed great ending!

My Son and Daughter in Law took us there for my Wife's birthday. The pizza is great. Service could not have been better. We all had a great time.

Vin 909 is located in Eastport in a charming house turned restaurant. It has changed hands over the years but since Vin 909 took over it is a fabulous establishment. Note, they do not take reservations and the wait can be up to an hour. But you can sip on reasonably price wine while you wait. The shared plates make... More

This restaurant gets it when it comes to food. Excellent use of ingredients and flavors...its one thing to make a dish taste good, its another to put together something with unique flavors married together just right, and be truely outstanding. Fresh ingredients, all of which could be tasted with each of our dishes, highlighted the experience. We had the fresh... More
