I love steak, therefore, it has to be done correctly. I wouldn't say it was done correct or incorrect; you decide...I ordered it medium rare. In some places it was medium rare, other places it was medium. I ordered a salad and paid the $2 extra to have it split between me and another at my table. Then I was... More

We enjoyed three appetizers for our table of five that included the celebrated Mac and cheese (it really is as good as everyone says), a plate (a bit on the course side) and bacon confiture, rich with carmelized onions. All delicious, but probably one too many given the size of the entrees. For the main course our table had the... More

I work at a Hotel in Durham. Every guest I send to Vin Rouge always comes back and thanks me for recommending that they try Vin Rouge. The food is always wonderful.

My husband and I have eaten here 2-3 times a year for the past 5 years and have never been disappointed. Food is always good. Desserts are divine. One time we disagreed with the amount of salt the kitchen had applied to a dish and the kitchen remade the dish quickly and without debate. Don't miss out on the tried... More

Took my family to Vin Rouge for Sunday brunch, and we all ((7 of us) enjoyed it. First, the place was packed, and we had a short wait, which was worth it. Mimosas and Bloody Mary's, and excellent coffee. Excellent menu including various versions of Eggs Benedict or omelets. Each of us tried different choices and all pronounced them very... More

I was driving up to Durham with my wife as we had tickets to a concert at Carolina Theater and wanted a nice dinner. Vin Rouge was a great choice. The menu was perfect for both of us to find exactly what we wanted. The wine list was really good and the atmosphere was quiet when we started as we... More

I had extremely high expectations for this restaurant. The overall experience was hectic and choppy. The service was friendly the meals a mixed bag. I am a good cook so I tend to order foods that "I can't get at home." Imordered calf's liver. I was asked for my desired degree of doneness. I stated medium. It was well done... More

While visiting Duke, Vin Rouge was one of the few restaurants open. We chose this restaurant because the parking lot was full at 5:30 pm and figured that meant good food within! We were right. The raw oysters were some of the best I've ever had. The salad was crisp and very flavorful. The mussels were amazing, we tried two... More
