Great dining experience! Listening to blues music; a bottle of wine; eating great food; and sitting outside under a shaded tree on a warm lazy summers afternoon . The "life is good" feeling is what I was experiencing at this moment.
They make a great hummus appetizer that you must try (ate it so fast I forgot to take a pick). It was just the right flavor and portion to drink with wine to get you prepared for the main course.
The two entree's had very different but good seasoning styles so depending on your taste buds you may want to choose accordingly.
The steak Diane has more of a rich well seasoned flavor (which I like) where there is there is the right amount of salt use to give the tender meat some soul.
The chicken had more of a clean light creamy taste (which was also good) that blended well with the dish and represented the nostalgic mood a bit more clearly.
They have a very friendly and down to earth staff and waiters (although there was one female waitress that was a bit too over enthusiastic but meant well - bless her heart).
One suggestion I would give is to add some fans for the outdoor dining to create just the right amount of breeze for those hot summer days.
Overall it was a very cool dining experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Went here because I wanted to take my boyfriend out on a romantic date night. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant.

While the food here is delicious, the lack of menu deters me from going to eat here for date night. But would love to come back for apps and wine.
Overall would recommend.
Solid eats paired with great vino is something I can always get behind. Vin 25 is such a cute spot in Roswell. It's like entering a good friend's home and also boasts a rockin' patio that's perfect for enjoying your drinks and eats.
I came with two others on a weeknight and we sat inside. To eat, we shared the pimento cheese fritters and hummus to start, and I got the scallops as my main entree. In general, everything was presented beautifully and well done. The scallops were a highlight for me, but I also enjoyed trying the cheese fritters which is something we just don't get down in Miami. The menu is succinct but has a little something for everyone. I'd be pretty confident ordering anything off the menu and trusting it's tasty!
Service was a little meh throughout. Hard to get our waiter's attention to order, pay, etc. Besides that though, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vin 25 for a solid meal out.
Vin25 is a lovely spot in downtown Roswell for small groups to gather with a great glass of wine in hand! My most recent visit was around 7:30 on a week night so I found it easy to get a table. Even though we had a reservation, we didn't necessarily need it for our visit. Half of the dining room was full and a few folks were sitting on the cute little outside patio.
The service started out a little slow but he was tending to a table who had just decided on their wine experience for the evening, so I'm not mad about it. They have a smaller staff and cozy atmosphere so I won't let this tarnish my experience overall. Basically, if you're coming here in a rush - you're doing it wrong.
The menu is pretty small for food and the wine experience is really what you are excited about. Amiright? We started out with fritters and hummus. Loved the harissa in the hummus because gave it a really nice flavor. There were chickpeas on top of the creamy hummus with thick pita bread slices with oil brushed on top. Pimento cheese fritters sat atop a pepper jelly that was just ok - the gooey pimento cheese was a rockstar on its own.
For my main course I ordered the Springer Mountain chicken paillard which was crispy on the outside and cooked perfectly tender on the inside. It was covered in lemony hollandaise and sat atop a potato-scallion pancake. It was also served with big spears of grilled asparagus which were yummy dipped in the hollandaise.
I had a previous experience where we had a gals wine night and had some delicious California reds and snacked on starters all night. Both experiences were lovely and I will likely visit Vin25 again!
I am so disappointed. Not because the quality or ambiance changed, but because it's clear that they couldn't give a rats a$$ about their customers any longer. We've been here 6 times, and most of those visits have been really good. This last time showed us that they are most concerned with the average check, than with how they are perceived by regular customers.
Overcharged by the manager, and a poor explanation by him to boot. We will find someplace else to spend our money. Makes me sad to leave you, but this is what bad management and poor decisions get you.
Take good care of your regular customers and they will keep coming back. Overcharge then and treat them poorly and they will never come back.
Best of luck to you Vin25
