A word from Off Vine
It was in May of 1989 that we at Off Vine Restaurant first opened our broad oak door to the guests we have come to welcome as friends and family from around Hollywood and around the world. Our home was built in 1908 in the arts & crafts style, the hallmark of comfort and fine handicraft on a very human scale. We have taken the Arts & Crafts sensibility as our own. We serve California American cuisine with an homage to the comfort foods, unstinting portions and simple elegance of the finest home kitchens across the country. And we serve it for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Come enjoy us whatever mood you"re in: a cozy rendezvous by the fireplace, a friendly meal in our vine-wrapped outdoor garden or a celebration with all your friends and family in our private room upstairs with views of the Hollywood Hills and Griffith Park Observatory. Walking distance from the Pantages Theatre, the Arc-Light Theatres, and Palladium we are proud to be in the heart of HollywoodContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great quiet restaurant with good food within walking distance of Pantages Theatre. Will visit again before next show I go to."
    Dined on 8/28/2014
  • "Terrific as always. What dining should be - close to a home cooked meal because of the ambience of a mansion."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "Great location, old town charm, food simple but great taste and presented perfectly"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Beautiful garden patio provided an absolutely lovely ambiance and and excellent overall dining experience. My blackened chicken salad was terribly boring..I feel I simply made a poor choice, and assume most of the food to be more enjoyable. My date loved her stuffed peppers salad. I'll be back for the environment and hope another dish is more satisfying."

  • "Great food and ambiance and really huge portions!!! And love the variety of selections! A great find in the craziness of Hollywood!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We were very happy with the service. We went for brunch for my boyfriend's birthday. When we checked-in for our reserved table, the host wished my boyfriend a happy birthday--that was a very nice touch!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The house and garden make for a relaxing get-away in the middle of town. Convenient $5 valet. We tried the steak, fish and pasta entres which were all prepared well but nothing spectacular. Souffle deserts are very good."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "This is a cute restaurant that once was a house. It's great if you are in Hollywood to see a play. I wasn't thrilled with the food though. It was ok but not fantastic. The portions were large. I had a special shrimp fettucine and my friend had the tilapia which she didn't like at all. I might try it again because it's so cute and try a different item."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We ate dinner there after seeing a play. We sat outside which was delightful. There were five of us and we all loved the food and service. This was our second visit to the restaurant and we will be back."

  • "This is a great place to have brunch prior to a matinee performance at the the Pantages - the food is delicious and plentiful!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Food, ambience and service are great. It's a treat to dine in an old home environment, especially on the patio, al fresco! Benefit is that you can walk to Pantages, just allow at least 20 minutes to walk to theater at a leisurely pace."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "My friend and I went here before the show at Pantages. We were able to walk over so that is a plus. I had the pecan chicken with perfect mash potatoes and green beans. My friend had the pork chop. Both dishes were great. I can see how a foodie that likes trendy food would rate this place lower but for me I like a good hearty meal that taste great and is not weird, trendy or fusion like! The souffle's were tasty and we had no problem getting them after our meal, just order them early. The waiters were very attentive. Maybe they are working improving their customer service in light of previous reviews. I would go again in a heart beat."

  • "Off Vine is my favorite restaurant in Hollywood besides Miceli's. Beautiful setting, great service and good food with reasonable pricing."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We enjoyed lunch here. The patio was charming and offered small areas that helped you forget you are a few blocks away from the Hollywood madness. They have souffles! Yes, plural choices for flavors. I couldn't decide so they offered to make it a 50/50 of chocolate/raspberry. Fantastic!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The food is incredible, the ambiance relaxed, the wait staff terrific, and don't leave without having one of their unbelievable souffles!! A favorite for years!!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My friend and I had an awesome birthday dinner last night and everything was just excellent- my special linguini with shrimp is still lingering in my taste buds and Deb had the pecan chicken for the second time and relished it. Our server Kirk was outstanding, as was the woman we had the first time we went, and the attentive bus boys and other staff are so professional. Very attentive but never intrusive. When a restaurant stands out it’s important to acknowledge the effort so I wanted to let you know."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Food was great. We sat outside. It was so peaceful. Very pretty. Could have sat there for hours with a few glasses of wine! Very nice people. Great vegan options. Waiter asked if we were going somewhere after and kept in mind we had a schedule."

  • "Always make a point of having at least 1 meal at Off Vine when in LA. Would recommend to anyone!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Great place. I come here every time I come up and go to the Pantages. I have never been disappointed."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I had eaten at Off Vine a few times prior, but it had been 5+ years. The food continues to meet my expectations and the ambiance was superb. Friendly staff all around. We went there before a matinee at the Pantages, which I have done in the past and when you let them know, they make sure you are out at an appropriate time. I would highly recommend this restaurant...it is a quaint little house that is in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is LA. It is nice to feel like you are not in the middle of LA, but rather in a tranquil little getaway that is Off Vine."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Off Vine was as I remembered, a lovely spot in an otherwise frenetic, bustling city. Great service, cute waiters ;) The food was very good. Not knock-my-socks-off-great, but good. Bread was great! Would we go back? Yes!"

  • "This is a great little restaurant to have dinner at before the show. Just let them know you're going to the 8pm show and they will accommodate you. Its an easy walk to the Pantages."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Oh we loved the ambience, the generous wine pours and the service. The problem was the food. We both ordered seafood dishes and were both disappointed because the seafood was overdone. Also, there was a lack of seasoning, SALT, in everything."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We were immediately asked if we were going to the theater. We were and therefore they made the special effort to accommodate us. The service and food was outstanding!!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Came here for Sunday brunch with my in-laws. A great choice: perfect setting, lovely atmosphere and good food. Their famous souffles are definitely worth a try, even if they take 35 mins to make. The only downside was our server: she didn't seem to be quite with it. Sadly, she forgot to read us the specials and then continually kept forgetting parts of our orders. Overall, a great food experience let down a little by the service."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Been going to this charming restaurant for many years and it is always good food and great ambiance. Service is friendly and prompt Always leave very satisfied. A bit on the pricey side but worth it. Do try the soufflé; mixed chocolate and Grand Marnier is our favorite."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Great for dining before theater performances at the Pantages. We go there for brunch and enjoy being able to eat outside in a charming garden/cottage environment."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "First time here and we really enjoyed it! Perfect before a show at Pantages. For an extra fee, you can leave your car at the Valet and walk to the theater, but it is a bit of a walk. We felt right at home. The food was great, portions were generous and the staff was very attentive. I am sure we will be back.....👍"

  • "Food was very very good..service great.would come again before theater"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The outside dining was very lovely, but for me the food was just ok the highlight of the meal was dessert we had a raspberry and a chocolate soufflé was great. The service was good too."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I have been going to "Off Vine" for many years. I discovered it while working in Hollywood. While you our there, you feel like you are dining in someone's house only with servers that you don't know. Since I was last there, they have raised their prices, but that can't be helped in today's economy, so it's a negative, but not really. I recommend this great place to anyone who enjoys going out to eat."

  • "We dined at Off Vine after a matinee performance of Ghost. It couldn't have been easier to find and parking was adequate with parking next door. The bungalow restaurant was quaint, the service was wonderful and our food was delicious. We would recommend this to our friends!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "It was my first time there ( I live in Simi Valley ) we met friends there who raved about Off Vine. They were oh so right, it was perfect. We dined outside because it was a oh so beautiful day. Our server was great and the the food to die for. We will be back soon, who cares about the drive when you know what awaits you. The GOLD STAR goes to the lox and bagels..."

  • "while it was overly air conditioned on the inside, it was lovely on the porch. I still had to keep my sweater on, but I wasn't freezing. The food was delicious; our server was delightful. the house itself is charming. just wish you didn't keep it so cold. It's summer-- women shouldn't have to carry coats around to go inside places! They aren't alone, but this was exceptionally cold!!! We shared The gnocchi was excellent. The stuffed pork was really good, but could have used a bit more cheese so that it actually oozed out! The chocolate souffle was very good, but doesn't really have an molten center."
