Every time I make a trip to Durham, I make sure to eat dinner at Vin Rouge. This dinner visit was different than times in the past. It was very loud. Each of us ordered steak. To our disappointment all three of us received it...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.

The restaurant offers a good option to have an average quality experience of French cuisine but stays short when exhibiting the flavors of French cuisine.

Although very highly rated, I found Vin Rouge disappointing. We were a large party, and the food was uneven. Some dishes were very good, others just mundane. The restaurant was very busy, but that does not forgive the apparent lack of quality control.The waitress was...More

I try not to eat out very often when I am traveling. It's generally a lonely affair. But after a long day of meetings and driving, I just wanted to treat myself to something other than a microwave dinner. Hangar steak and good wine are...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
