I have been to Vin Room twice this past month both on recommendations from the people booking. The first time was a small group and the second time was a large group of us. Both times I felt the food could be better for the price. We tried many dishes from the menu so I feel we've had a good sampling of what they have to offer. It is definitely nothing to write home about but not horrible so hence the 3 star rating. They have lost points for wishy washy service from the same server (both times) who is somewhat of an airhead and barely makes it back to the table. As this is a place that is specifically about the wine, you'd think they'd be on their game about getting you your drinks. Both times we waited on the server too long once sitting, too long to order drinks and too long to bring them.
Messed up our bill with the large group quite badly, couldn't keep track of who's who, who ordered what drinks and food and who gets what bill. Both times no one was there to get our coats as we left (my sister accidentally took the coat tab with her because of this). Overall not a terrible place but Fergus has better food and service so I'd go there instead. I really hope the management takes reviews seriously as the last time we were there, the place wasn't very busy (again, why the slow service with only several tables full in the place??).
I get sick of spending good money on blah food in Calgary. Yet time and again I read about some chef I've never heard of serving up locally raised pig in some trendy but boring spot that is way overpriced. How about some good damn food?
