The food is always a delight and the service just what you are looking for. My only complaint was the wait for a table of six because it is very small. We drank some great wine while we waited, but were a little crowded by the bar. Tried to call ahead to let them know we were coming, but phone... More

We had a most delightful lunch to beat the Valentines Day crush. We sat right down and our server was a charm. We had a meat/cheese appetizer with the most delicious blue cheese ever. My husband had the moroccan skirt steak that was soft like butter with the most succulent spices. I had the Angry Pig pizza with wild boar... More

Fabulous old home converted into a restaurant, great outdoor dining and bar seating with kitchen views. What's not to love? Selection of wines, fresh local, farm to table foods and beautiful presentatuon sealed the deal on this one! A keeper for sure!

Vin 909 has a great vibe. The staff are uniformly warm, personal, knowledgeable and professional. We always feel welcome and have so much fun! There are a variety of reasonably priced wines by the glass And the food....AMAZING. The chef has a changing menu of seasonal offerings and these are not your stock expected dishes, but really innovative and delicious... More

Take note restaurateurs: this is how you do European/California bistro-style: relaxed and informal, with great service and very good fresh food at reasonable prices. There is nowhere else in or around Annapolis that offers this type of dining experience done the right way. The closest we've found is in Easton. We were not disappointed on this repeat visit. We have... More

Finally a restaurant with quality - taste - and atmosphere that beats all others in town and reminds me of my New York homeland. Try the small pizzas - if they can get it right - why cant my local pizzeria. The food is superb (and not just by Annapolis standards). Tuna tartar, the sliced steak, the salads - all... More

Vin 909 is cute with good food! The menu is very fresh, although a little limited for my tastes. I would like to see a few more choices added. The service is usually very good. My largest complaint is they are always busy but do not have an organized wait list, hostess, or any kind of reservation system. Boo

I have never been disappointed with a single dish here and every single time I've eaten at Vin 909, I've always wanted to repeat my order -- immediately! It's hard to leave room for dessert, bu the pot du chocolat, when available, is simply heavenly. That said, the place isn't large and it is often difficult to get a table.... More

I'd been wanting to dine here for a long time. I went for drinks one night and the scent of food had my stomach growling. My husband had stopped once and gotten a flatbread pizza for carryout, but we'd never dined in until recently. Coincidentally, I went twice in one week. The first night, a group of neighbors went for... More
