Had a really nice relaxing time with friends at an early seating on the bar side. We had a larger charcuterie plate (valentine's special) which had a delicious variety of quality cheeses and meats to compliment our wine by the glass. What I appreciate here is the cozy space and attentive service of course, but high quality wine by the glass is an exceptional experience, and perfectly suited us as we all like different wine profiles, plus we tried a few that we wouldn't necessarily buy by the bottle. I'd highly recommend this place for a flavourful and quality experience at a decent price.

We have been to the Vin Room a few times. I. The past the food used to be unique and delicious. Serving sizes are very small now and except for 1 of our 5 starters none of our choices had amazing flavour. We weren’t informed of the price for our special flight of wine tasting. We were a table of 4 and had a wine tasting flight, a low-moderate priced bottle of wine and the 5 starters (1 - 1 1/2 meatball each for the meatball dishes). For this we paid $290 including $40 gratuity. We enjoy high end restaurants and could have each had an appetizer, main course, dessert and wine for the same money at other restaurants. We went home feeling ripped off, gratefully a feeling we haven’t had in a long time. We like to support restaurants and have been fortunate to give 5 star ratings to those we’ve tried

Also we booked 2 weeks ahead for a night that was “jeans and jazz” but were seated upstairs. The jazz is on the lower level, so we missed out on that.
On the bright side the servers were nice!

Great location, lovely ambience, sincere service and fabulous wine selection, in fact brilliant wine selection. The food however, was horrendously bland. The chicken meatballs were tasteless, the lamb meatballs were spongy and also just completely tasteless, the calamari and the brussel sprouts were actually okay, but the charcuterie plate could have been bought from your local super market. This place has such potential, however the food is seriously bad, go for the wine, but don't bother eating there.

Was a nice evening! Charcuterie/cheese board was amazing! We ordered the steak and did ask for them to cook it to more of a medium vs the medium rare the server stated it came. When it arrived it was more rare to medium rare, bit disappointing. He said they could throw it back on the grill, but it came sliced already which probably would have been a bit messy so we just ate around the extremely rare parts. But all in all everything else was great.

I took the 3 course meals and was desappointed by the appetizer that had no flavor (the brie).
The main course was better, with the meat but again, the potatoes were ok.
The desert was ok too, not much flavor. It was missing veggies or fruit.
Next time, I will order a la carte, some tapas.
Service was very good and ambiance very nice.

This was our first time to Vin Room Mission. The service was very friendly and attentive. The music was just the right volume. We went for happy hour, to have a few drinks and appetizers. Although the flavor was fine on most of the 4 or 5 dishes we ordered, there was not enough food to enjoy. I find it hard to believe that they couldn't add more food to each of the appetizers. The spaghetti was tasty but hardly 2 fork fulls. A handful more noodles would have cost another 20 cents. The homous tasty but not enough pita, and I was charged another $2 for a couple more pieces. The charcuterrie was nicely presented but there were too many pickled things and not enough meat and cheese. Overall, after spending $30 on food, we were not impressed. Not going back.

Good food especially the steak bites and the steak frites. We had a wine sampler which was very interesting.
It was cold upstairs. We asked the waiter if he could turn on the heat and he just said that the fireplace is on and that it will be warm soon. It never got warm. The people on the lucky table next to the fireplace took turns to sit on the bench next to the fire to warm up.

Upon arrival at 5:00 pm on a Wednesday I mentioned we had a reservation for the rooftop patio and we were pointedly told by the gentleman greeting us that there were never any guarantees but we were lucky that day and he could seat us on the rooftop patio. (It was less than 1/4 full.) I do appreciate their efforts to scatter the tables so no one was seated right next to another party. We were seated in a less than desirable table on the inside corner across from a scissor lift next door which was moving up and down with drilling and spray painting. Our server was with us quite quickly. He was nice and professional but smelled strongly of cigarettes. We ordered a couple of items from the happy hour menu which were reasonable priced and very tasty. It was getting busier and we wanted to order again but the server informed us he was working alone and apologized for the wait when he returned to take our order. The party next to us may as well have been seated with us because they were jammed in that closely. There was space to leave a buffer but they did not unfortunately. Happy hour specials are always nice but it’s unfortunate when the place is understaffed and people are crammed in. It takes away from the ambiance and we felt a bit unwelcome. I wonder if it’s the same when it’s not happy hour? It’s a shame about the loud beeping scissor lift next door and our table being right next to it. For these reasons we probably will not be returning.

Great place to get together and chat. I like that there are lots of different size options for wine so that you can sip and taste without committing to ...large quantities. Would like some suggestions for food and wine pairings - maybe this is offered and I didn't see it.
