“Magnificent, all around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I visited Vin48 with my dad and stepmom during their visit to the area to visit me. I will say, I was somewhat hesitant about Vin because I was under the impression, just judging from their name that they were geared more towards the wine list that necessarily the cuisine. Boy was I wrong. The food was amazing. I ordered steak, my dad had walleye and my stepmom ordered lamb. We were all extremely impressed with both the presentation of the food and its overall quality. My steak was cooked to absolute perfection, as was my stepmoms lamb. My dad loved the walleye, which had been recommended by the concierge at the hotel where they were staying. For dessert we ordered the chocolate decadence and 3 scoops of ice cream, which were all amazing and particularly the presentation of the chocolate decadence was highly professional. Our waiter was perfectly attentive and the chef even came and inquired about how we liked our meal. Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about Vin48 and would recommend it to anyone in the area.

“Good food, good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We arrived here around 7pm a friday night. The famous happy hour was already finished. We got a table and we ordered an appetizer and two entrees. The food was really nicely presented, tasty and fresh. We ordered shrimps, lamb and streak. Everything was fresh and highly prepared. Wine is reaally expensive unless you come here at the happy hour time. Service is very friendly and the atmosphere is nice,..people come here to see and be seen. I recommend this place, but come early, around 6 pm, it will be cheaper!... :)

“Best Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great food for an affordable price in a fun and energetic environment. Pork cheeks are fabulous! Mussels are delicious! We go whenever we can make it to Avon in time for Happy Hour.

“Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

When we ate there the waiter mentioned they recently updated their menu, but we weren't aware this would mean they were still working out the kinks. After reading the reviews we were very hopeful it would be a good meal, but it just fell flat. I would recommend going for Happy Hour having a couple drinks and maybe apps then eat someplace else.

“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.
