I want to start this by saying that VIN Rouge is a bit of a staple for our family. We have probably been there ten times in the past five years. Which I know doesn't sound that impressive, but we don't often go to the...More

We enjoyed dinner on the outside patio on a weeknight while in Durham to visit Duke University. Interior seating seemed more formal and romantic, and we were in the mood for casual dining with a nice summer breeze. Our table was a little wonky (you...More

The wait staff were excellent. When ever I needed anything, puff, they were there. The ambience reminded me of Paris. The table was small and you could smell the kitchen, the smoke, the spices, the food, I love that. We had escargots for an appetizer,...More

Food was best I've had in a long while and my girlfriend agreed. Incredibly tasty omelette, french fries and salad with it seemed to fit the restaurant. Service okay, room was a little old and a bit cramped, but food was worth it.

Based on reviews, I expected "quite good". But the food was truly excellent; If I were served French favorites of this quality in Paris, I would be entirely satisfied. And the prices are quite moderate for the quality. We aren't the first to discover Vin...More

I am not competent. The restaurant's manager is the only person able and supposed to answer your question. I suggest starting your inquiry on Vin Rouge Website. I am sure a gluten free dinner can easily be accommodated... More
