Great for Outdoor Dining
Absolutely amazing French Cuisine. Absolute pleasure coming here, gorgeous atmosphere and first class service. And then theres the food. If you enjoy French cuisine, you're going to love this place - otherwise perfect!

Perfect place to eat before Pantage
This restaurant is right across the street from the Pantages. We ate there Friday night before the show. The service was friendly and attentive. They have a tapas style of service which is a little strange when ordering something like the delicious lamb burger, and make a point of telling you that the dishes will come out as served, not all together. If that's okay and your guests are willing to share, this is a great place to eat. The food was excellent. We had salads, chicken wings, mussels, soft shell crab, risotto balls, and everything, especially the lamb burger, was excellent. The margaritas were good too, and they have great beers on the menu, I am told by the men in our party.

Always a great place to go.
Went here for my birthday and came back for another little celebration.

WOOD @ VINE
The restaurant is in a nice setting in the heart of Hollywood. It has a nice outdoor patio. Great for a meal before going to the Pantages Theater across the street. The food is really good-- although some of the portions are small and a bit pricey. Make sure you try the chicken and waffles.

Dining Before Theatre
I took my granddaughter from U.C.L.A.
out to dinner before the theatre.
Waiter explained the dishes. We split
each dish to experience the unique
delicious, flavorable foods.
I ordered more dishes as the night went
on. They knew we were Theatre goers
and got us out quickly, but not rushed.
Arrived at the Pantages in plenty of time.

Yummy Eclectic Flair
Unique menu with Fun food! ...Changes every day, so may not find your favorite from a previous visit, but exciting to try new things...everything was delicious and we couldn't help conversing with table next to us about their delicious looking choices. Several selections of yummy small plates available, unfortunately they come out to your party at different times, which can be uncomfortable watching your other guest eat and then dining after them. But, this is the "small plate" way of dining. I would highly recommend for a fun dining experience before the theatre. Can't wait to go back.

Great Food and Great Service
Can't wait to go back again. We got a bunch of small plates to share and the drinks were very creative. Great mixologist. I could eat a bucket of the fried chicken and waffles.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is a little limited now...
I love your place.
With that said...
The menu is a little limited now. Call me crazy, but I don't want anything made from a "Pig's Head". Also, I don't want organ meat (liver, etc).
So, I was limited to the somewhat normal things on the menu.
How about some fresh new dishes for us folks who are afraid of pig heads and liver?

The mussels are always good.
The mussels are always good. This time they had a spicy kick in the broth which I loved. Scallops are a winner. I order them every time. My friends got the chicken and waffles even though they weren't on the menu anymore. I like the outdoor patio.

Consistently good food
Arrived late for reservation and had to get to theater with not much time for dinner. The staff and the kitchen were very helpful and cooperative about getting us our food promptly. And, the food was absolutely delicious.
This is the second time we've dined there and food is consistently good. Will go back.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great time! The menu
Had a great time! The menu changes daily and is all fresh, so that's intriguing for any "foodie." Servers are adorable and knowledgable about the menu, as well as attentive. The use of their outdoor space is really unique and you can enjoy the fire pit when the evenings are cooler. We were on our way to the Pantages and they not only checked with us, but made sure we were done in plenty of time. Will go back!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant across from the Pantages. It is so convenient to eat before the show and the staff was so accommodating to our time frame. Well worth the effort!!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wood & Vine a hit
Always consistent, with the food always good. A great place to grab dinner before a evening at the Pantages.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great before or after theater
Great before or after theater restaurant. Wonderful food, good wait staff and management. Lovely outdoor patio eating area. Have never been disappointed with service or meal. Also, very accommodating when faced with inclement weather for patio dining. they always have a plan B. Always a joy to dine at Wood and Vine.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten dinner at Wood
We have eaten dinner at Wood and Vine many times before and have always found it to be excellent. This time the quality of almost everything dropped. We hope this was just a bad day and not another restaurant going down hill.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ideal for dinner before going to the Pantages...excellent, fresh food choices!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place before the theatre
Convenient to Pantages, excellent service and very creative dishes
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
food was full of flavor, great
food was full of flavor, great variety of salads, apps, sea food and meat. The steak was amazing, looked a bit strange but exploded with flavor in your mouth. Their cheese selection was disappointing but I am a cheese snob. The cheese's they had were good, but the variety was small. There were 6 of us, we ordered about 1.5 plates a person and 2 bottles of wine and 2 cocktails and out bill was $336 which included tip.
They played a low budget movie - (no noise) on the wall of the large building next store which created a fun and hipstery experience.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
At first glance the menu didnt seem to be anything too extraordinary, but each dish we had was absolutely fantastic! The place seemed like it had many different spaces, but we had been seated upstairs and didnt walk through most of the restaurant. We were also impressed by the service. The wait staff really went out of their way to help speed things up when we realized we were in a bit of a time-crunch. The cocktails, like the food, are also very uniquely and excellently done. I would suggest, though, that they not call their menu "Tapas style" because its just not. Be careful to allow extra time for the valet service, its as slow as it is expensive. Wood and Vine is fantastic, I would definitely recommend this place!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was in LA for business and a friend suggested Wood and Vine for dinner. I liked it so much I went back, twice! Don't miss it!! The food is excellent and so is the service.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and awesome food
Have been here twice...the first time right after they opened and had a pleasant experience but not blown away. Just recently went again using the gilt city deal. Normally when you buy a deal you tend to get sub par service, but not here. We had some of the best service I've had in any restaurant and we get around to a lot of nice places. The chicken and waffles are the way to go along with their fruit salad. Overall had a great girls night at wood and vine!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is literally a gem in Hollywood. It's between businesses that seem to make it small but once you go inside this place is just absolutely amazing. I just want to thank Jerry the manager who helped make my husband's 40th birthday an absolute great experience. He went above and beyond to accommodate our group. Our server Greg was also great with his energy and entertaining attitude. When Greg remembered us from previous visits, that made us feel important and set the mood in the right direction. Keep up the great work! Great staff, great food, and great service! Thank you again!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for sharing food with friends
We had a group of 11 friends on a Friday night. The place was very loud but they had a space for a surprise party upstairs near us, so that was neat. The food was good -- the chicken and waffles and veg gnocchi were by far the most memorable. Everything else was just ok. The salted Carmel pudding was also very good. If you go, bring a group of folks because it's all tapas style.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, drinks and atmosphere
The chicken wings are AMAZING! Super crunchy on the outside and juicy inside. So tasty! They are definitely not your typical "bar food" wings. The specialty cocktails are also super delicious.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great ambience .. the outdoor patio is amazing and the chicken and waffles is SO GOOD !!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Soft and relaxing
I went with my family the night we arrived from Italy. We were pretty tired so we appreciated the low volume of the music and the local and organic food.

Wonderful respit from Hollywood
Beautiful patio that has wonderful food (perfect portion size) and is a wonderful break from the Hollywood that exists right outside its front door. Only recommendation is to avoid rush hour times as you get a lot of helicopter traffic above the patio.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, ok service
Charcuterie, heirloom tomato & avocado salad, and 2 glasses of red. Food & drink was perfect. Service during my meal was fine. I was dining alone, so I get that they were probably trying to leave me alone. Guys filling water glasses were on the ball. Servers were ok - not super friendly, not unfriendly. However my final memory of the experience was getting asked to leave because people were waiting. I was there for 1.75 hrs - high bar stool near bar, not comfy for a shorty. I was never asked if the table was ok. I was there at 5:45. The restaurant was empty. Give me a regular table. Even the fire pit area would have been better, also empty. Just ask me. I would have been ok with being asked to leave if I was at a regular table.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The good, the bad, nothin gugly
The good: high quality food, well prepared and nicely presented. Quantity a little light, but very tasty
The bad: Arrogant service. Bartender with attitude, waitress with elitist and misguided sense of "cool."
Nothing ugly: Really nice layout and atmosphere, good food, quickly learned to ignore the attitude... I'd go again, this time ready to give staff a piece of my mind if a repeat of the attitude took place.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pricey but good
All the food was excellent, but you order multiple plates, so bear that in mind when you look at the menu. Beer list was meh, wine list was decent. The service was a bit slow on a Tuesday evening. I think they only had one server working the entire place (it was _maybe_ half full), so it took a while to order and to get the cheque.
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
A gem in Hollywood
A gem of a find across the street from The Pantages! From the fresh vibrant menu to the service will bring us back. In fact we are going with friends again this month! For the theatre the find is exciting and makes for a pre play dinner to look forward to.

Service was great - very friendly.
The Magnolia was one delicious cocktail!
The scallops were amazing.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for dinner, ambience is great, particularly before or after going to The Pantages.
The menu notes that items are meant to be shared; however, usually this means tapas style items, which this menu did not present. The only thing presented was "as the kitchen prepares the food, it comes out", kind of funny; however, the place was chic, the server pleasant enough, the drinks delicious and the company kept was fun . . . so we were happy :)
The next time we come back, we will order one thing at a time and both want that dish. That should take care of it!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious Food / Great Service
Our server was very friendly, upbeat and knowledgeable. She helped my wife choose a wine based on her description of what she likes and it was very well received. I had the whisky flight for $12 and it was a nice selection. All of the food was great, but our favorite was the scallops. Each element of the dish was tasty on its own, but once we took a bite that had everything in it we were blown away. Looking forward to dining here again.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outdoor seating, twinkling lights, a black and white movie projected on the adjacent buildings wall, this restaurant definitely carried a fantastic ambiance! Food was also incredible, though the proportions were a bit smaller than expected. Overall an incredible find.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for pre or post theatre
Wood and Vine is directly accross the Blvd from the Pantages theatre and accross Arglye Street from Lot C. It is even 100 feet from the Vine Mtro Station. Considering the convenient location Wood and Vine was the perfect pre theatre spot. The cocktails were creative and high quality, food was admirable attempt at quality smallplate fare and the service was attentive, friendly and time sensitive. Great choise for dinner before a Pantages performance.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
WE SAT ON THE PATIO. IT WAS A BIT CHILLY BUT THE OUTDOOR HEATERS WERE ON AND IT WAS TOASTY. WE STARTED WITH A CHARCUTERIE PLATE AND RECOMMEND THE WILD BOAR SALAMI. NEXT UP WAS THE TOMATO SALAD AND IT WAS WONDERFUL. THE SCALLOPS AND HANGAR STEAK WERE FABULOUS. FINISHED THE MEAL WITH THE BUTTERSCOTCH POTS DE CREME AND IT IS A MUST.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very welcoming. Dishes are
Very welcoming. Dishes are meant to be shared, adding to the enjoyment of the food and the company. We had a cheese plate, a lentil/fig salad and the sliders. All dishes were outstanding and notable. Great place to go before the theatre.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner before the show
Great food. Original and healthy. Good prices. Loved the tomato salad, chicken and waffles, gnocchi, and hummus. Next time we will sit outside by the firepit and watch Audrey Hepburn movies. We sat upstairs near the door.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
great for pre-theatre dinner
We often have dinner here before a show at the Pantages. The food is great, but the service can be a little indifferent at best.

Alfresco Farm-Fresh Dining
This is a surprising little gem right on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame". The front holds a classic style bar which leads you back into the open air seating for dining. But even on chilly evenings the temperature is cozy due to an open fire pit and gas flame heated lighting. But best of all is the food. Although the choices appear limited the quality cannot be overstated with every item cooked to perfection bring out the best of the locally grown farm fresh ingredients. This is a treat not to be missed!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Perfect for pre pantages dining
We tried one of each item on the menu (which is quite small). It was all pretty good but the scallops and chicken waffles were the best. Right across the street from pantages and valet is 10 with validation which eases the pain of having to deal with the Hollywood traffic.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great place before the Pantages!
I chose this placed based somewhat on the location, wanting to park once for dinner and The Lion King. It did not disappoint! Gotta try the truffle potato chips and the chili lime wings. Service was excellent too.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner & Wine
Great ambience and good value for money on Monday night set dinner. Had great time.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great meal before the show
I've tried Wood & Vine several times, and each time it gets better. The new chef has mixed things up a bit and introduced some incredible items. With each visit we have tried different and wonderfully new dishes. The Pork Belly (one of the new items) was outstanding! Some of the best we've had. You will never go wrong with the Chicken & Waffles, as they seem to get better each time. Whatever you do, leave room for dessert. The Butterscotch Pot De Creme will blow your mind.
Wood & Vine is the perfect beginning to an evening at the Pantages Theatre.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cozy bar scene with tasting food.
For a bar styled restaurant it is quite nice. Food. tastes great but small portion as is typical of bar styles.
