“Average Food expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Living part time in the area I finally had some friends up for a ski weeks so we decided to give Vin 48 a try. The atmosphere was nothing special and the tables were extremely close so trying to ignore a loud conversation at the next table became annoying but luckily we could see that they were leaving soon. I started with the pork cheeks which were disappointing and followed up with lamb which I ordered MR to medium. It arrived rare. The meal was so average I decided not to complain and not come back. Sometimes it isn't worth it when your dining with a group to interrupt the flow of dinner. There are so many other choices in the area.

“Helpful bartenders & wide selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Love this wine bar! In a town without much nightlife (since everyone skis until they drop and goes to bed early to do it all again the next day), this is a nice oasis of subdued sophistication. There is a wide selection of wines to choose from and if you don't know what you want, the bartenders will take care of you! They also have 3 oz. size glasses of wine which are nice if you are a lightweight or want to taste more of a variety! The food was also excellent!

“good food, reasonable pricing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

This restaurant provides a great atmosphere. The kitchen is memorable as well. You will enjoy good pork cheeks and other yam my plates.
Restaurant provides a nice selection of wines.
The price is very reasonable for the quality of the food and the quality is very good.

“Vin was Uncon"vin"cing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Very disappointing. We ordered the rabbit and the Shrimp dinners. The Rabbit was bland and rubbery, looked very unappetizing; on the other hand, the shrimp was over salted.
Service was extremely fast, so fast we were out in 45 minutes! To me, that means the meals were already cooked and prepared BEFORE we got there! Also, noise level is high! Very over rated!

“Great food and great wine list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We went there last night. Great food and good service. Can choose from multiple small plates or have a larger plate as a main. Good range of deserts. Excellent wine list but in a way more importantly a great selection of wines by the glass. Would recommend to anyone staying in Avon and definitely worth a trip down on the free bus if staying in Beaver Creek.
