Five of us had a girls night out at Vin de Set. Had a wonder large booth, the waiter, I think his name was Blaize, he was so nice and funny and very attentive. The food was very good and it was so nice not to be limited to a large entree. They have many appetizers and small plates, soups and salads, plus a nice selection of entrees. You could spend a few hours reading their wine menu.

We tried, appetizers, crepes, soups and salads. Everything was delicious.
I am going back with my husband soon.

The food was amazing, and so was the service. Very classy and great atmosphere. Wonderful wine list and the dessert was to die for.

First time there, weather did not allow rooftop but ambiance inside is nice. Our waiter Charles was so helpful and friendly. Had the scallops (husband liked a lot), shrimp crepes (I liked a lot), mixed greens salad, and a special of the day hake fish. Husband had special soup somewhat of a chicken gumbo (he liked I was so-so) and Missouri Trout. Everything was very tasty. We lucked out, I think it was facebook Friday? bottles of wine were half price. Score! We were blown away when at the end of the meal we were presented with a card hand signed by staff and 2 free desserts and coffee. WOW! Our 27th Anniversary was just made so much more special with that extra surprise. Great place, will definitely be back to enjoy the rooftop.

The food is excellent and the menu has many options for all tastes. The atmosphere is wonderful: quiet, romantic, upscale, without feeling stuffy or old. If you have a nice night, the rooftop dining is the place to be for great views of downtown St. Louis. The service was perfect and the bartenders know how to make a good mixed drink. I really cannot find anything to complain about, which is rare. Well okay...one thing. it was a beautiful fall night and unsually warm, but the outside seating was already closed for the season, so we sat inside. Hardly a complaint, but you should know that there are no real views from inside the restaurant, so only go for the view if it is in the wamrer months. We decided to fill out the comment card to let them know that all aspects received 5 stars.

My family and I were in town from four different cities in four different states, and we converged here to celebrate two graduations, a birthday, and mother's day. We picked Vin de Set through recommendations from some locals, and we were not disappointed. Based on what we'd heard, we didn't expect the food to be phenomenal, but we were praying for a gorgeous night to eat up on the patio. The weather cooperated, and the food was actually pretty good. Plus, they threw in a free dessert for the birthday boy. I live in NY where we have our fair share of mediocre tourist restaurants with a gimmick, which is what I thought this would be. Expectations exceeded, and we all had a great evening.
