Du Vin

A modern european bistro, offering tantalizing food and drink in a quaint, comfortable and casual setting. eight time recipient of wine spectator magazine's Award of Excellence.





After almost a decade in business,
Brasserie Du Vin closed its doors on Saturday, January 31, 2015.


As a way to honor the memory of our beloved French-inspired bistro and an homage to the incredible Chinatown community that has supported us all these years, we will be converting this website and our social media accounts into a digital museum, celebrating our favorite experiences and memories, and raising a glass to an ever-growing and enduring Honolulu. Here's a taste of what's to come.

"Your place was so special to us and our daughter who live in Honolulu. We enjoyed so many wonderful evenings there with our daughter and son-in-law. We live in California and we can tell you that your restaurant, staff, and special vibe was something we looked forward to every time we visited. We wish you the best of luck. You will be missed by everyone."

-- D.T. & R.T.

"I am heartbroken by this news.

isn't there anything we can do to help you?" -- A.H.


-- D.D.


"I so enjoyed my lunch with you in December. I remember when you opened and was excited about a wine bar in HNL. Having lived there for a number of years, I return each Fall / Winter for a short visit. You will always be on my agenda and I pass your name along to my mainland friends who visit HNL. Love the service, the food, and the feeling of being in a French cafe."

-- Hugs, P.F.
