Vin West was the destination for our group of friends on Thu 12 Sep. The decor is eclectic - the bar, the brass lamps, the exposed brick, the wall of wine.. Our server, Brett, was impeccable. We ordered dishes to share - 2 Vin Plates, lobster nachos - and some that were too good to share - the grilled cheese and lamb steak. We also shared a fabulous Cakebread Merlot. Thank you to Phoebe Fung and her team for another wonderful evening!

We visited the Vin Room West last night and really enjoyed the evening. The place has a great atmosphere, nice selection of wine, and good tapas. The service was good and we will definitely be going back.

Been to Vin West a few times and liked it. The first few times the chef's plate was good but this time ordering the 4 items individually on the menu would be cheaper than bundling them on the chef's plate. Where is the value there. Each time we go the service gets worse. After we got our wine and the first 2 tapas the waiter disappeared for 20 minutes while we waited for the rest of the tapas. The seafood was very good but the eggplant chips were greasy like they had been sitting around and cooled off. Finally some other waitress came over and said he got tied up. What is his job? Good wine selection and nice décor though.

I invited my hard-working daughter out for a night of relaxation, good wine and good food. And it was time to try this relatively new restaurant which is just a few blocks from her home - her husband offered to babysit there young daughter. Upon arrival, we were impressed with the decor and choice of seating. We started out by ordering a bottle of the A to Z Pino Gris from Oregon, which our knowledgeable waiter served well chilled with elegant wine glasses. It was wonderful. BUT hold on here: I've run out of good things to say about this restaurant. The Tapas were tasteless, overpriced and disappointing, and the service was not there when we needed it. We wanted more water, but the waitress was nowhere to be found. Needless to say, we will not be going back.

All the food came out Luke warm and dried out as if it had been sitting a while. Lobster nachos consisted of greasy tortilla chips with lobster meat and tobacco sauce. Not sure what that thought process is but didn't seem gourmet. Fish mediocre, over priced. Won't be going back any time soon!
