Nice restaurant on the 1st floor of a authentic mansion; close to the city centre and the Witte de Withstreet (many nice bars!!!). We had a 3-course dinner (seafood/meat), 2 bottles of wine (Albarino/Valpolicella), coffees and after dinner drinks. Food was well prepared, well seasoned...and service was great. Service was good and the sommelier is a great guy. We paid 260 euro for the for of us and is was well worth the money.More

Not a first time in this restaurant... food is excellent and wine cart is phenomenal! Environment is great. Only thing is that with the exception of the sommelier, the rest of the staff is not the kindest or sympathetic as it should be for a...place such as this where you expect excellency in all ways. It is a pitty. After 3x having the same sort of treatment coming from the same staff it is clear that is not about the staff having a bad day, but just the way they are: directive, doing their job sufficiently not adding more than that, therefore missing pleasant and welcoming atitude. If you seek for quality with super kind staff, where the client treatment is a major plus for you, then this might not be the best choice.More

I visited Vineum on a Thursday night with my son. The room was nicely decorated with enough space between tables and wine bottles on the windowsill. The restaurant was situated on the 2nd floor and there was not an elevator or escalator. We chose the...4 course dinner with a white bottle of Austrian grauburgunder and a red bottle of German riesling The first course was a tartar of dorade. The second course was a bit off target in our opinion. The aspergus are not in season at the time of writing (begin april) and they were a bit hard. The third (main) course was a lamb fillet with a mousse and potato/cheese bites on the side. The meat was okay but nothing too special. The bites with old Rotterdam cheese were very nice and brought something extra to the course. For dessert we had a cheese platter which was good and a panna cotta which wasn’t particularly exciting. All in all the (broad choice of) wine is what makes this restaurant. The food is okay but doesn’t justify the price that is asked.More

Location just of central station in Rotterdam, these guys are nailing it (killing it as my US buddies would write) in multiple ways; 1) great food (veal, truffle pappardelle) 2) great wine (biggest list of Europe, and 30-40 terrific ones on coravin) at affordable rates...3) Niels and his crew are just splendid 4) great atmosphere, cozy but still private and the place was packed. Willl come back here time after time. Thank you!!More

We had a lovely 4 course diner. The sommelier was great, shared some nice background of the wines from the wine arrangement. Would highly recommend the restaurant. The starter we had was carpaccio of Gambia’s, second the octopus terrine, I changed to the lambs rack...which was super tender, and the cheese platter.More

Last night we enjoyed a great diner with an absolutely fabulous wine, a Barolo. My UK company loved the wine list and it took some time to make a selection. The overall experience was of such a level we will come back for sure, moreover...because the location is not that much "in your face" as some other high level restaurants in the city are.More

We chose the meal with the wine pairings even though I’m usually sceptical about that. However, Vineum have a very passionate and friendly sommelier who made it totally worth it - we loved all his choices as well as his explanations! The food was excellent...with sensible portion sizes (especially for the menu). The only disappointment was that my husband ordered the Crepe Suzette at the beginning of the meal and was told after the main course that they had run out.More

Had dinner here with my wife and friends a few days after a disastrous dinner (see other review about Napoli in Haarlem). We immediately knew we were in for a great night as we were warmly greeted upon entering the restaurant. The dining room upstairs...was oozing with a relaxed metropolitan vibe and the waiters were quietly but purposefully moving through the dining room to serve the diners. Drinks orders were quickly taken as menus were handed out for dinner. We all opted for the a la carte menu as the seasonal set menus all revolved around venison steak, something none of us were in the mood for. Across the group, three different four different starters wered ordered: (1) the steak tartare which was delicious; (2) the tagliatelle with fresh truffle which had an amazing truffle aroma and tasted excellent according to my friend; (3) marbré of duck liver which looked amazing and went beautifully with the pata negra ham; (4) pan-fried duck liver with pear tarte tatin and an ice wine reduction - simply amazing! For mains, four of us ordered the grilled beef tenderloin, two of which also ordered the supplementary pan-friend duck liver. One of us ordered the Corvina (fish) fillet. All five mains were outstanding in taste and presentation. The portion sizes were also just right. Besides the food, we ordered three bottles of 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet which accompanied the meal beautifully. All in all, Vineum was a great new discovery in Rotterdam and a place I will definitely visit again when in Rotterdam as the restaurant combines great food, a good wine list and friendly and proficient service.More

Vineum works from the wine to a meal. I was there for my birthday with family and friends. Vineum has a private dining room for this kind of occasions. Wine and Food are really great
