Lovely night at Cave Vin – My husband and me visited Cave Vin on a busy Saturday night. We were greeted by a kind hostess who sat us quickly and earlier than our reservation. We were delighted by our knowledgeable and friendly waitor named Josh who recommended a fantastic wine and gave his own experienced thoughts on the menu choices. We loved our steak tartare, frog legs, duck breast, trout, and desserts! Overall, I thought the food was terrific and the service was wonderful. I would recommend this candlelit restaurant to anyone wanting a nice night out in a fancy French manner. I've been to Paris and this was just as good and priced even better than the restaurants I remember there!
Terrible!!! – My wife and I had reservations at Cafe Vin for 6:45. When we arrived, we were told the wait would be 10 minutes (even though a number of open tables remained and we had reservations.)
The host was very rude and unprofessional. In the middle of our waiting (two other couple were waiting as well) he went out for a smoke break. He returned and proceeded to seat the next couple that walked through the door. When we asked why they were given a table before us we were told they had requested a specific table. Fine, except the host had no idea who we were or if we had checked in yet. We decided to leave and which point he said he now in fact had a table for us. Sure.
For better atmoshpere, better staff, and a better experience try Pierre's Bistro on 50th and Penn.
Dr. – Have made 3 trips so far and plan on many more. Each trip has been with guests ranging in number from 2 - 10. Each trip my guest think I am a genius finding this hidden secret. If you enjoy French food and good wine, Cave Vin is a must.
Fantastique! – I was pleasantly surprised by Cave Vin. It's a small space, but that only adds to its charm. It has a very intimate setting with beautiful recessed lighting and candlelight illuminating every table. The wait staff is very attentive and personable. The owner even stopped by to say hello. It is very obvious that he takes a lot of pride in his restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. The mussells and cheese plate that I sampled were just right, as were the sea scallops and wine. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for those on a date looking for an intimate setting.
