Best Deviled Eggs Ever!

My daughter and I really enjoyed our February evening at C'est Le Vin. Our server was attentive, we ordered four different tapas/appetizers and enjoyed all three. The wine (which I unfortunately cannot remember the name of) paired beautifully. This would be a really fun place to go to with a... read more

Service was terrible. I don't know if the server there was left stranded, but she was worthless. We walked in and stood at the front for far too long before she seated us. Sat for 10 min before bringing us water and menus. water had floaters in it, and when I asked for new glass of water she brought back... More

Nicely hidden yet public. Fun band, great local art, scrumptious groupon deal and food. Great for a date night if you want something cute different upscale feel without being stuffy.

1) Red wine should NOT be served at room temperature!! Particularly not in Richmond, Virginia in July, and especially not if you call yourself a wine bar!! If you can't afford a proper wine cellar, at least store the wine in a dark place and chill it slightly before serving it to get it down to cellar temperature. A few... More

My last visit, the son waited on my dinner party and was extremely rude to the customers. I was shocked and disappointed to say the least. He was very... More

Although I had a brief wine tasting, I fell in love with this place. The intimate setting and the very nice people were every welcoming. The wines tasted were amazing. I'm excited to come back for thier spoken word night.

Visited on Friday date night, early before a movie. Greta small plates and interesting wines. We split the cheese plate, the seared polenta and the seafood lettuce wraps. All were nicely presented in perfect tapas portions. Lots of places claim to be doing small plates these days, but there's a difference between small potions and a tapas menu meant to... More

Interesting location, the food is good but the service very poor. A lot of wines on the list not available, the waitress knew nothing about wines. The evening was saved by the manager.

My fiancé and I have been to C'est le vin two times now, and both times have been superb. I love the tapas style of eating, and being able to sample tons of items. Don't miss the cheese plate or the amazing garlic shrimp. It's has great ambiance and is the perfect spot to be able to talk without it... More
