Here for a second time. The first time with another couple, this time with the kids in tow. I like this place but I almost always like a french bistro. The food is comforting and while it's not fantastic, it's been good both times we've been.

We ordered a medium seafood plate and it came with surprisingly huge and delicate 3 layer plates. Great values! The service was also flawless. We enjoyed a lot and had a great night.

Vin Rouge is probably my favorite restaurant in Durham. It's consistently fantastic food, whether you go for dinner or brunch (and I love brunch!) While their menu doesn't change often, it doesn't need to. It's french bistro food, and darn good. The atmosphere is cozy and a little dark, the way it should be. Their onion soup is easily the best in the triangle. The pate and charcuterie plates are thoughtful and their liver "tastes like my mom used to make it, but better" said my Bosnian friend. Any excuse to come to Durham for a meal, sit at the bar and talk to Roy or lounge on the patio, I try to take it. The only thing that is inconsistent about Vin Rouge is the service. most of the time it's great with professional servers. But everyone has an off day and I understand that. I will continue to come here as often as I can.

Macaroni and cheese to die for! You may want to split this with your dining partner. Can be "busy" and crowded upfront but the backroom is a little more "private" and quieter. Depends on the atmosphere your'e seeking. We've eaten brunch and dinner there and like them both. Brunch is an outstanding value. will definitely return.
