What a find! Great wine list
What a find! Great wine list and flights. Small plates reasonably priced and all good. We will be back. Definitely an urban vibe.

I really enjoyed the food
I really enjoyed the food and wine. Portions were perfect size for sharing. Waitresses were helpful and friendly. Go for tapas hour, great deals and great food. Dining room was small but cozy. Only problem I had was with the parking. Only 1 hour parking on the weekdays and sat. Had to go out to the car and change my parking space in the middle of dinner. Would definitely go back despite the parking issue.

I really enjoy Vino Wine &
I really enjoy Vino Wine & Tapas Room, having been there a few times. It's always quite crowded, and the service can sometimes be a bit spotty, but the prices are quite reasonable and it's a fun environment.

Loved this place. Fair prices on absolutely great tasting tapas. Lots of choices on the menu. Very friendly owner and wait staff. Very reasonable corkage policy. This will be my "go to" place for tapas!

Phenomenal tapas & sangria!
Delicious food & the sangria is to die for.
A little on the pricey side, so take advantage if you can of their $5 happy hour prices.
Can get loud, so don't expect a quiet & romantic experience.

Vino Wine & Tapas
I went out with a couple of friends and we wanted to try something new. This was the perfect spot. The food was EXCELLENT
and there was a large selection of wine. The place filled up fast so it was a little noisy but the live music was a nice touch.

I have visited Vino now three times and each time has been great. Rosalyn is very knowledgeable on wines.
Great ambience. Parking is horrible but it's made up for by the food and wine.

Good for a first date
I went here on a first date and found it a great spot. The acoustic guitar player added another layer to the ambiance. Service was great! I will definitely return, whether alone or with others.

Amazing all around!
Such a hidden gem - you walk in and you feel like you are entering a different world from the hustle of Ventura Blvd. The atmosphere is dim and very nicely decorated with wrought iron and Mediterranean flair. There is often a live musician playing sax, guitar, etc. There is also a wonderful outdoor patio, seating area, lounge in the back which is also perfect for a private party. Their wine selection is top notch, and have several flights available for sampling. Their sangria is Out of this World!!! Great for groups too - every time I have gone there has always been one or two large (8-12) groups and the restaurant can accommodate them very well. Food is fabulous as well - and terrific happy hour includes some of their top tapas and wines.

Always have great food and service here. This little restraurant delivers big flavor and extraordinary service. They offer an extensive wine list (many by the glass). The atmosphere is casual, intimate and classy. I will return.

Vino Wine & Tapas Room
Is an energetic/vibrant place. It is small so reservations are needed unless you want to sit at a crowded bar. Good variety of unique small tapas plates. Food tasted great. Service was excellent and server gave good reccomendations.
Later at night, has a small band/guitar.

We went during DineLA week
We went during DineLA week and we would have liked to have seen a more balanced DineLA menu-that is, fewer potato/carb based choices and more veggie or meat choices. The food was really good, the ambience was fun & energetic. The noise level was over the top- we had to shout to be heard across the table. The menu was very confusing with wine lists in more a couple of places and the same for food. It could benefit from a simpler format that did not require a ten minute explanation from the waitress. The wait staff was attentive, friendly and patient with our confusion. We would definitely go back, but maybe on an ordinary week night in hopes it might be quieter.

This is a quaint, upscale
This is a quaint, upscale restaurant with excellent tapas, empanadas, and bistro foods with an Argentinian flare. This is a good opportunity to try some wines that you may not have seen before. There is also live music and a very nice bar. This is a great restaurant for casual conversation with friends or a romantic dinner with that special someone!

A Hidden Gem!
Tapas were fantastic. Great ambiance. Romantic, albeit a little loud and boisterous, but since we arrived just after happy hour, everyone was just having a grande ol' time...

was so happy to find
I was looking for something like this...It was exactly what we were looking for. Found on Open TABLE as did not know the area and read the other reviews. Very happy amazing staff and so enjoyed

This place doesn't disappoint. Delectable tapas with mouth watering flavors & unique combinations.
We had the eggplant, chicken aji, croquettes, mushrooms, & red sangria. For dessert we had the chocolate cake. All items were unique & it's easy to see that these are original recipes & not the same things featured on many other menus.
Love this place!
Live music too!

Everything was great but it was uncomfortably hot inside the restaurant.

Best Tapas Around
We had an amazing experience! The night was absolutely fabulous. The tapas are to die for and the wine list was amazing. We'll definitely be going back soon. Such an incredible dining event! We loved the ambience too. Such incredible service.

Good food and music in Valley
This is a solid tapas and wine bar in an area without many good restaurants. The food is a nice mix of tapas and fun to share. The wine selection is large although not the greatest in the world. They have wine flights which are fun and reasonably priced. At night there is a live musician who is pretty good.

My wife and I went here on a whim. We had driven past on multiple occasions, and I'm so glad we decided to go here. The place was packed, and our reservation was honored within moments of arriving. The food was amazing, as well as the wine. They had live music that was also fantastic. Couldn't have been better. A+

We went to Spain a few weeks ago and never had a chance to experience Tapas. This was perfect! Food was delicious.
Ambience was perfect, though for a small room the keyboardist was a little loud. Highly recommended. Cannot wait to go again.

Sangria to Flan
Everything was delicious from the Sangria to the best Flan since Mexico. Cant wait to go back.

Outstanding Tapas in Encino!
OK, so I'm a food snob (I admit it). Down from SF to the San Fernando Valley to see my GF, she's never really had tapas, looking for a romantic and good place. Rave reviews on Yelp - all accurate! We had an OUTSTANDING meal - food, service, ambiance, price, EVERYTHING! Split a Mixto salad, then a 5-plate of the Delicias (bacon-wrapped figs stuffed with blue cheese and a carmelized walnut - YUM!!), outstanding cerviche, terrific calamari frite (with 2 sauces, a romesco and something else, both great), mushrooms in garlic and wine to die for, and about the best potatas bravas I've ever had. Totally full, with a great Spanish red, live flameco guitar, wonderful ambiance and attentive service - you owe it to yourself to try this place!

Great wines , tapas, live music
Vino offers wonderful food, a great atmosphere with live music (Spanish guitar on the night we were there) and tasty tapas.
Their friendly service tops that off.
