About Vovem Meat & Liquor
Vovem is contemporary. Sophisticated. Innovative.
Offering a unique experience and authentic atmosphere, Vovem will be a bar and steakhouse of the likes Aberdeen has never seen before.
Above all, it oozes quality. Quality is a value at Vovem’s core, and it drives everything we offer, from our mouthwatering steaks to our on-trend bar and premium service.
Very short staffed on Sunday, the poor waiter did his best under pressure, he was run ragged and unfortunately the service and atmosphere suffered as a result.
We had some issues: 1) Starter menu not appealing 2) Bread on a plate rather than just serving it in a basket 3) Only butter option had truffle in it 4) No Highland Steaks 5) No Wagyu options from Highland Wagyu supplier 6) Sirloin Steak from Banneman was very average 7) Service was extremely slow 8) Bar downstairs was closed
Lovely meal in a beautiful setting.
Food was amazing. Service was amazing. Definitely be back
Delicious meal! Xx
If I was to be picky, I would have preferred the fat on my sirloin to be trimmed or "rendered" a bit more.
Steak was absolutely unreal
Medium rare fillet was delicious, although it was rested for over 10 minutes with no heat left, it still tasted delicious. Male waiter started well but his attitude changed close to the end. He then proceeded to change full price for the 2/1 steaks. Claiming there was 5 of us so 2/1 doesn’t fit - It works for 4, plus 1 at full price. This was my second visit to Vovem, 1st time was 10/10. This visit was 6/10. I will return.
My food was fantastic. However my partners fillet steak was meant to be well done( It upset me her ruining steak) but was medium at best, she ate it and never complained but it wasn't what she ordered. Considering this is a steak restaurant well done steak isn't hard to cook even a quick feel you can tell the difference. However the meal was very nice and I would return.
Food was very nice but the service was poor. We received our steaks over ten minutes before our sides (which ended up comped) despite repeatedly being told they were 'just coming' or 'they'll just be a minute'. Steaks were cold by the time we received our sides and there was never an offer of keeping the steaks warm - only excuses of how busy they were (the restaurant was not full). I got the impression every time they came to tell us that the sides were just a couple more minutes away, they wanted away from our table as quickly as possible to avoid questions. Even once we got our bill, it took an age for anyone to return to take payment and the bill was wrong - attempted to charge us for water despite requesting tap water. Good food but unlikely to return.
Had the Sunday Roast, two for £25. Real value for money, without doubt the best Sunday Roast in Aberdeen. You can spend as much as you want on wine to go with the roast, but at two for £25 for the food, you won’t be disappointed. Will definitely be re-booking and going again
Visited on a busy Saturday night, service and timings were excellent and I would highly recommend dining here
Great food again .
The food was outstanding and could not be faulted, the steak and accompanying side dishes were cooked to perfection. The pudding was delicious and served beautifully. Where the dining experience fell down was firstly, the service. We were handed a menu before we had even sat down, and asked what we would like to drink. upon advising the server that i would like a few moments to review the wines on offer, he preceded to stand right beside our table and continued to do so for a number of minutes, making us feel under pressure to order without being able to peruse all options. My partner asked him to come back in a few moments, which he duly did. He took our drinks order. He then had to return to our table a number of minutes later to double check the type of wine we had chosen. This just set the evening off on a bad foot. Other than that, the food was served quickly, we were asked if everything was OK, and warned that our selected pudding choice would take a little longer. Absolutely fine, because we were informed. Secondly, the atmosphere; the tables are far too close together. it becomes difficult to hear who you are sitting across from, due to the proximity of the person sitting next to you, who is actually on a different table. This was not helped by the servers treating us and the table next to us as one when asking for any more drinks etc greeting us all in one go - they were strangers, and we were a completely different table! Finally, we asked for the bill to be delivered to our table and had intended to go to the bar for a further drink before leaving. We had to wait 40 minutes for the bill, and ask a different server before it showed up, which by that time, the 'want' to remain and frequent the bar had left us. A disappointing note to end the night on. Overall - the food is incredible, but everything else could use a pull up!
Absolutely loved Vovem, we booked in for lunch on a Saturday for a party of 6 plus a 15mo toddler and it was such a lovely experience. The atmosphere was so chill and relaxed, the food was literally amazing and the team of people were so attentive and lovely. We can’t wait to go back! New fave restaurant!
Steak was raw and when I pointed this out the reply was do you want me to put it under the grill. Really disappointed about with the quality of food.
Negatives: Wine selected from list was not in stock. Why not use a red sticker on wine list to indicate that rather than have the customer pick it and waiter then spend ages looking for it No wagu and limited Davidson’s options, struggle to imagine how a steak restaurant can allow meat stocks to become that low? Waiter was extremely reluctant to go over the sharing meat options and no mention of any specials. Positives - fillet steak was good. Hanger was lovely (if not a bit expensive for such a cheap cut). Payment was efficient.
Fabulous Restaurant, Food is Amazing and Service is Excellent. Ben looked after our Table of 8 on Thursday 6th Feb , he was very informative about the Menu and Wine , he was also very attentive and made our night a really nice experience.
3 out of 4 steaks over cooked. excepted a steak place to be able to cook steak. Service was good
Great meal, couldn’t fault
One of the tastiest steaks I have eaten anywhere!
It would be an idea for the serving staff to advise during selection of side dishes. This is down to them being large portions and we left some untouched. (One between two would have been sufficient in some of the dishes)
Excellent food and service! Not one complaint!
We had the Sunday roasts - absolutely delicious, great value for money and I will definitely be back! Would recommend to friends and family
