A very nice space and atmosphere for a fine dinner. Menu is interesting and the food was very good. Perhaps a bit overpriced, but what I expected. Nothing vegetarian on the menu, but the chef prepares a meal on request and my wife thought it...More

The food just wasn't good. I really tried to like it here because it was recommended to us by close friends who love Vin Rouge, but both my husband and I agreed that the food was tough to like. The Oysters Gratinee were so odd...More

What is not to love. Authentic French cuisine and atmosphere. It can get a bit busy with the small, typically French, tables but it is all worth it.

Very good French restaurant with an excellent wine list. There is a choice of indoor or outdoor seating which is always a good thing.

We could only pick the three course prix fix option. Compared to Lantern and Panciuto the food was less creative and significantly more expensive. The service was just ok.

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
