Went with my family. Seating is very close quarters to the other tables and doilies over the drop down lights. So-eclectic and certainly nothing modern. Wide selection of drink choices and we started with a very hearty French onion soup, which we enjoyed. I had...More

We ate outside, but the inside is really neat as well, including the restrooms ;) The oysters were excellent (local to the mid Atlantic states), as were the seafood entrees. A word of caution if you order the rillettes: it's not going to be Bordeau...More

Vin Rouge is a favorite among my friends and family for birthdays and other celebrations. The food is good and always brings me back to living in France. The soupe à l’oignon is my favorite and I get it every time I go.

I studied in France in college and traveled there extensively. Vin Rouge offers traditional French food and the Salade Nicoise is my hands-down-favorite. The last time I was there, it was a bit over dressed (trop de sauce) but the wine selection was still fabulous...More

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

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
