    I highly recommend 3Twenty Wine Lounge. the service is very friendly and helpful and even though the dining experience centers around wine, the food is excellent. I had the DineLA price fix meal and it was amazing. The burata cheese and heirloom tomato appetizer was one of the best I have had and the surf and turf was excellent, especially the short rib. The salted caramel gelato on a thin slice of chocolate cake or brownie was enough to share. We have been here several times and Edgar is not only knowledgeable, but also very warm and friendly. This is a find on La Brea. You will learn about wine and have an overall great dining experience.

    Here you get great personal attention (especially early in the evening), good wine selections, by the taste, glass or bottle. Edgar, the owner, will give you good suggestions on wine, and the food is better than most restaurants.

    With its big attraction being its wide selection of carefully chosen wines, a top choice for me would be their tastings. Roam a selection of chilled whites, and reds around two tables, you can add them to a tasty set of entrees. I went for several seafood entrees and was not disappointed.

    In a sea of endless wine bars, this one stands out. Not only because they have cleverly designed the menu around the wine tastings, but because the tapas style sharing plates reflects the way people want to eat these days - more share-able plates with creative flavors and unique ingredients. We really enjoyed tasting the wine, and speaking with the owner who clearly knows his wines and has spent the time traveling to understand the winemaker's process. We will definitely be back again!

    Food was great especially scallops and lamb. The wines left a lot to be desired. Paying $3 to $8 per 2 sips of wine is a bit much and spoils what is otherwise a great culinary experience. If the place wants people to come for its wines, they should either reduce the price to half of the current prices or double the volume. Then it will be truly worth coming to this place!

    We came for the wine options, but will return because of the great service. Fantastic attention from every single staff member. Small dinner plates were slightly smaller than what our party is used to, but every one of us felt so comfortable there that we're definitely planning a return trip. We had a lovely, celebratory, tasteful, intelligent dining experience at 3Twenty.

    I was looking for a wine bar and came upon a random review of 3 twenty. This place is awesome. We went for my wife's birthday and the owner of the establishment was extremely generous pouring us glasses of wine out of his private stash. We had such a good time we did not realize how much wine and food added up (everything was reasonable priced though). We purchased more than we should but it was more than worth it.

    We stopped in for dinner Friday night. Great wine selection and staff really extend themselves to help you! Nino told me the wines are 'like my babies' - they are all great. I found the tastiest robust Pinot noir from Santa Lucia highlands and my husband found a great Barbera. And we had the fun of sampling the Picpoul and the Sauv Blanc, the Chardonnay and the Malbec. Can't wait to return and bring a group!

    For a wine themed restaurant, it was very disappointing. I work in the wine industry and know a little bit about wine. The wines offered were mostly vintage close outs and very overpriced. The food was not good, I ordered a cheese plate for $20 and got 8 small pieces of supermarket cheese. I ordered pan fried Sea Bass, it was so overlooked it was inedible. Overall very disappointing.

    My son Richard, visiting from out of state, and the rest of our party were all wine and alcohol drinkers. I am not, so cannot answer question 2. I do not drink alcohol, but used my email and phone number to make the reservation. My guests loved 2Twenty and said they would be bringing their friends to the restaurant because they liked the wine bar and the small plates. I personally chose to take my guests to 2Twenty because they are wine aficionados and love small plates. I am a long time friend of the artist whose art was displayed and my party knew her also.

    I simply love this place. The food is magnificent and the wine list is very unique! I'm always delighted by all the new finds and the options are always changing (wine list and food wise). The ambiance is charming and inviting and the service is top-notch. They have the best burrata I've ever tasted...ask Edgar to help pair this with the perfect wine.

    Small restaurant with a big wine list. Food was very good but not outstanding. Wine choices were great - you could get a bottle or glasses from a carousel. We got a bottle but next time we'll try the individual glasses. Service was excellent and the decor was great. Also, lots of street parking - bonus in that area.

    This place is trying to be cool and different but in the end it's just very pricey. The menu is very old and very limited. No choices for sides. The waiter was super friendly but chef must have been out of sorts teh night we went. Ordered a carrot and ginger soup, taht had these very odd seeds in it that made it taste super sour and not of carrot and ginger at all! Then ordered the grapefruit jicama salad, which arrived without grapefruit , and tis for a 12 salad. I did send it back and it returned with more grapefruit and less jicama. The mussels were ok, but half if them were dried. Just overall this restaurant is trying really hard to be different and sophisticated but just comes across pricey and all over the place with its random menu.

    This was a last minute find as we came into town. Small plate menu was just wanted we wanted late at night. Braised lamb in pasta and the bacon wrapped tiger prawns were piping hot and delicious. We chose the option for the "wine card" which allowed us to sample the bottles that they have on tap (appears to be pressurized with automatic dispensing system). There was probably about 50 total bottles over three systems. Each bottle has a review that is provided by the owners and you pay-by-the-pour. Great concept that allows you to taste a wide variety before you settle on a favorite. We tried several and then finished with a double hit on the Turley juvenile zin. Great find - fantastic!

    Another excellent dinner at 3Twenty. The food was delicious! At first I was a little disappointed to see that they changed the vegie that went with the scallops from spinach to asparagus, but it was still very good. Scallops were perfectly cooked. I love how they time the foods so that everything is hot and your table isn't overly crowded. People are very nice and the gentleman (owner?) was very gracious. They are attentive, but not overly so. One of our favorite places. They even remembered that it was my father's b-day, even though I had cancelled the reservation and then re-scheduled. That was very sweet.

    Whenever my friends want a great place to go to enjoy fantastic food and wine... or I have visitors from out of town, 3Twenty is my number one choice. Some of my favorites: the scallops, mussels in broth, skillet steak w/ roquefort butter, bacon wrapped prawns and most of all - the lamb poutine... & there are always great wines to pair with these amazing dishes. On my last visit, we tasted about 6 wines, but settled on a very full, fruity and delicate Truchard pinot noir. It was such a great find! I'll be going back to this place again and again.

    Wine selection was interesting and good. Food needs a little breadth -- particularly accompaniments to main dishes. Cheese plate was OK but a fairly pedestrian selection of cheeses (I'd suggest swapping a Rogue Creamery Blue or Cashel Blue). That's it for constructive criticism. A nice spot, low key and fun. Additionally, being able to get a taste of Amarone for $10 was a nice surprise! I am confident 3Twenty will continue to improve -- the staff has a great attitude and I believe a real interest in learning and improving.
