This was our second visit and it was faultless again. Staff and friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Food was amazing both times. I can’t see past the fillet steak from our local butcher Banerman from Inverbervie 😍 steak was perfectly cooked as were the side and chips. Wasn’t too expensive either which always helps. We left full and very satisfied. We will definitely be back 👍

Had a delicious meal; thoroughly enjoyed it! Steak, sides, potatoes....all great. We all had different cuts/breeds and the less expensive came out ops! Service was attentive but not over bearing. Pricey for what it is - £240 for 3 people (1 person was on the water) - but enjoyed it non the less and will return for a treat/special occasion.

Unquestionably, the finest Steak establishment in Aberdeen. 21 Crimes 'secret' bar enigma was unavailable to its restaurant customers! :-(

The main course was absolutely delicious but the pudding was horrible which was disappointing after such a beautiful steak

Our food was incredible, however we were very disappointed by the service though the staff were very pleasant. We were left to wait 10+ minutes for someone to take a drinks order from us. At this point I had to ask the waiter about which sharing cuts were available (we were seated far from the board), therefore I was shown a photo of a piece of paper with the cuts/weights, but no explanation or recommendations were given nor were we informed of any specials (if there were any). Luckily I happened to check that all steaks were available, as it just so happened the steaks we decided to go for weren’t available. Food service was very quick, though we weren’t offered bread like the other tables. On two occasions we had to remind staff of our drinks order and towards the end of the meal we were just left with empty glasses with no option to order coffee or drinks. We eventually had to wait 30 minutes to catch someone to request our bill. I was informed over the phone prior that due to it being a birthday celebration that my partner would be served a ‘Birthday plate’ but this was not done. All in all the service let the restaurant down significantly, and it was clear from the body language of other diners in our vicinity that they too were frustrated with it. It’s a real pity and I hope it improves (I have heard negative reports regarding service from others) because otherwise this restaurant is outstanding, and I would always sooner visit local restaurants as opposed to chains. As it stands; whilst the food is of very high quality, the service that goes with it does not justify the price tag.

Although the quality of steak is good and worth the price i feel that having to pay so much extra for sauce and sides was ridiculas. £165 for 2 people. Was ok for a first visit to say we had tried it but probably will not be returning. We were not informed of any specials which we then noticed on the facebook page after our visit and there was no mention from staff of any cocktails etc and no drinks menu.

One of the best anniversary meals I've ever had! Food was absolutely amazing, cocktails are unique and (very) easy to drink and the staff were really, really friendly and accomodating. Will 100% be coming back and telling as many people as possible to go too!

My son chose Vovem for his 21st there was 12 of us and we were very disappointed with our meal. My son and daughter had the fillet steaks these were cold and looked as if they were the end cuts as they were so small. They went back and was asked if we wanted them heated up or new ones and they chose new ones, they were just as small the new ones at £36 a pop they were very disappointed. Also £4.50 for mashed potatoes that also went back as they were cold. Two of us had the pork and this was also cold with worm gravy. My brother had the Tom a hawk and the meat was not good at all. They forgot to take the £120 of the bill that was paid in advance until we mentioned it. They charged us for 3 bottles of red wine when we only had two. All in all this was a very disappointing visit. But the staff were lovely and we were told they didn’t have a head chief on that evening.

A few things I wanted to highlight, We enjoyed our meal but we’re glad that the waitress had explained that the sharing steaks can have a strange after taste. I found this a bit strange and didn’t fully enjoy my meal due to this but this is just the way the steaks are according to waitress so no fault of chef etc. I have had sharing steaks before but never experienced the after taste. The service was very good but almost over the top, waiter and waitress constantly asking if meal was ok and topping up our water every 5 minutes. It just became a bit over the top! We were sat at a booth facing out to the rest of tables which we both found strange, normally a couple would face each other. It was also very cold! We both had on long sleeved tops but we were both freezing! Wanted to put back on our jackets the whole way through the meal. The meal was expensive and as I say, it didn’t live up to expections because of over top service and strange taste of steak.

The food and service were superb (as always) and this probably explains why it was full on a Tuesday evening.

£2 for tap water !!!!! The mackerel starter at £12 was on the small side and the sauce it was served with was not a sauce but a not very tasty water.....disappointing. Serving our main course to us when our starter plates are still on the table was a big no no...... onion rings were cold. All in all a beautiful restateith a great atmosphere and good vibe but unfree food was overpriced and underwhelming......sorry ☹️

First time dining at Vovem and it was amazing! Ordered the Tomahawk and it was the best steak I’ve ever had. Cooked to perfection and so much flavour. All the sides were delicious that went with it (especially the manchego truffle fries) Service was great and the staff went out of their way to make me a cocktail that wasn’t on the menu and were very attentive. Would highly recommend and will be dining again
