VH, a quaint restaurant and bar in Oak Cliff, is one of the city’s best-kept casual dining secrets. Named after local restaurateur Victor Hugo, it boasts a stylish and inviting interior space featuring a full bar, and a spacious front patio that encourages outdoor eating and drinking. It’s the perfect place to visit when you’re in the mood for a relaxed, social experience, whether that means just grabbing a drink or enjoying an entire meal.

To put it simply, you can’t visit VH without trying a cocktail. The drink menu is loaded with house-recipe elixirs that will satisfy any preference, like the Santa Barbara Breeze, a creative concoction that blends Passion Fruit Mango vodka with Agave nectar, lime, and orange juice. The resulting flavor combination isn’t quite like anything you’ll have tried elsewhere, but it’s certainly refreshing and addictive.

The Santa Barbara Breeze is a unique cocktail that will make you want to order a second round. 

The appetizers at VH are just as tempting as the cocktails, thanks to a few inventive signature dishes that stand out from the rest. The Duck and Goat Cheese Taquitos, for example, are an upscale twist on a fast casual classic, and they’ll blow your average taquitos out of the water. They’re one of the most popular items on the menu, and it’s easy to see why after you try a bite.

VH transforms a basic dish into something better by rolling savory duck and goat cheese into its smoky Taquitos. 

When it comes to entrees, VH has a menu that’s just the right size. There are plenty of American-influenced options to choose from, with a select few dishes—called “VH Favorites”—that are recommended by the house. The Red Wine Wagyu Pot Roast is one of those options, and it’s definitely worth a try if you’re in the mood for a hearty, homestyle meal. The savory combination of cheddar grits and braised Wagyu beef creates a wonderful flavor profile that makes this dish a solid choice any day of the week.

Wagyu beef is delicious on its own, but it's even better when it's slow-cooked into VH's hearty pot roast. 

VH marches to the beat of its own drum, which makes it a perfect fit in quirky Oak Cliff. If you plan your visit well, you can enjoy weekly specials and happy hour offerings that will make your experience that much better. For best results, get there early to beat the crowd, and snag a seat on the front porch to enjoy the breeze while you eat.
