    Ate outside in the patio dwarfed by the local buildings. still feels intimate yet total LA. A whisky flight then watermelon beet salad made me enjoy a veiny cheese for the first time. The fish was great with some surprises in the dish. A delight.

    We had a delicious dinner following a matinee in Hollywood. This restaurant is across the street from the Pantages. Very convenient! All dishes are designed for sharing. We enjoyed burrata with fresh peaches, with other dishes and had a lovely butterscotch pot de crème for dessert. Very tasty meal. We will be returning and recommend this dining spot for others.

    After a year of trying to make it to Wood & Vine, we finally met some friends there and really enjoyed the comfortable, cozy, intimate environment in the upstairs dining room. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The wait time for the food was quite long, but when it did arrive the wait was forgotten. Superb watermelon salad, truffle chips like I've never tasted before, melt-in-your-mouth scallops, and bacon n' grits that would make any mouth happy. Only one dish (cauliflower) didn't meet expectations being heavily over-salted, but the butterscotch dessert brought the meal to a noteworthy finish. We look forward to returning and sitting in the back courtyard area when they have the fireplace turned on!

    Good place to grab a bite if you're visiting the Pantages or other places in that area, but don't expect much. The food is decent. The staff seems nice. Our waiter was not very knowledgeable or tactful with our dietary issues, but he feigned interest. It was a bit loud, so probably better for a younger crowd who likes that kind of vibe. There is a nice outdoor patio in back.

    We were 10 minutes late for our reservation and it seems like our table was given away. That's on us. But the hostess said it'd be just a few minutes and we should go have a drink at the bar. 10 minutes later, we were still trying to get the one bartender's attention. All their tasty cocktails are labor intensive, so the poor guy had no way of being able to handle a full bar. Nonetheless, it was a long wait to order, then a long wait to get our drinks. After 20 minutes at the bar, we went over to remind the hostess we were waiting and she acted like we just showed up. Our waitress was good, but disappeared after our meals were delivered and never came back. We had to have someone else bring us our check. Good food, disappointing service.

    We've now been to the restaurant twice, prior to a show at the Pantages. They are great about getting you in and out to get to your show on time. Starting with the drinks, they have a great speciality cocktail menu. I haven't had a bad drink there yet, although I've only stuck to whiskey drinks so can't speak to others. The food is fantastic. Really enjoy the peach & burrata salad. My only complaint is that the food is a tad on the expensive side. A $14 burger (not grass fed) without a side seems a bit much. Even if they lowered the price point by $2 I would feel a bit more comfortable then spending another $6 on fries.

    It's a new restaurant, hopefully still getting the kinks out. The menu could be more expansive where entrees are concerned, though the offerings we tried (small plates) were quite tasty. The patio is nice but feels confining with very tall buildings an all sides....perhaps more strings of lights overhead or gauze "sails" to break the acres of vertical walls? As is usually the case, we were older than most of the other patrons, and we realize that the "kids" have different tastes these days. The location is great for shows at the Pantages and the people watching is fun.

    We had a confirmed reservation and arrived right on time, but we were told our table was not available yet out on the patio. We waited 15 minutes. Still no table. We were going to the theater and didn't want to be late so we finally agreed to be seated in an upstairs room. Hotter than hell! No air conditioning!! Sucked!!! Our Waiter explained that they had overbooked the reservations -- again. I don't know why we were chosen to be screwed. Just lucky I guess. Never going back.

    Took my Dad here before seeing a show at The Pantages. The food was incredibly tasty...once we got it. We ordered the pork chop, tri tip sandwich and the burrata and peaches. The pork chop was perfect and tasty and my non-foodie father loved the burrata. The problem was the tri tip sandwich. Despite being there only 30 minutes after the opened the ran out. And to top that off the didn't tell the waitress so twenty minutes later she has to come apologize. The burger we had instead was fantastic and the waitress kept us updated and comped part of our meal while we were waiting. Looking around I'm surprised she didn't appear more stressed as the food expediters attempted to deliver food to the wrong tables at least ten times that I noticed.

    Very handsome decor and cool vibe; nice indoor space and terrific outdoor patio dining in back. Wood & Vine offers a relatively modest selection of eclectic small plates, but all of them are wonderful, creative, sensory adventures. Friendly, prompt service makes for an overall perfect dining experience.

    Midweek tickets for the Pantages Theater means that dinner can't be leisurely, can't be complicated, and the staff can't have an attitude. In the past we've tried to walk-in at Wood and Vine before a show, but never got a table in time. This time we booked on OpenTable just after boarding the light rail, and noted on the res that we had theater tickets. When we arrived our table was ready, the hostess recommended several dishes that would get us out in time, the waitstaff was attentive and gracious and timely, and the food was light and delicious. We even had time for dessert, the butterscotch pot du creme. The outdoor seating is in a skyscraper canyon, but we had no trouble talking to each other over dinner.

    We really enjoyed the food, it was incredibly delicious, and "healthy". The choices were limited, but exquisite. The only downside is that it was definitely "a higher palate" cuisine. I was glad that we did not have picky eater among us, because their only choice would have been the fries. Because the selections were very limited, a no soy-vegan eater would also not have enough choices.

    Across from the Pantages in Hollywood, this restaurant has a deck behind the bar area where they serve the tables. You look up at the sky and the various 10-ish story buildings surrounding you. Very metropolitan without car noise. The food is delicious and inventive. The service was great. Yes, we were there early after a Saturday matinee, but after reading all the poor service reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. I think they're working to change their reputation. Would definitely go again and take other foodies.

    We chose the restaurant for its proximity to Pantages. I am gluten and Dairy intolerant so it's not always fun eating out, however I do check menus prior to going to restaurants and there was fish on the menu. When we arrived they said the fish was gone. I asked if I could have another meat dish with some vegetables instead of spaetzle. They said it would 'ruin the integrity of the dish' - I buy that however the one thing on the menu I could eat was sold out so can you just make an exception? It's not great going out spending almost $100 and still feeling hungry. I won't be going again or recommending.

    The most recent visit to Wood and Vine demonstrated again their flare for combining flavors. I dined with a party of 5 and we sampled many of their plates and all were hits. Of special note were the lamb and cauliflower. Great food, nice presentation and perfect proportions. The only slight negative is that they seemed to be short on wait staff. It was the pre-theatre crowd and many patrons were antsy about receiving their checks.

    Although the service was very good, the menu is lacking. It's too broad so that nothing can be refined. It seems to be trying very hard to be exotic yet at the same time basic (e.g. chicken and waffles) The short ribs on coucous looked good, but were very greasy tasting. So rich that it killed my appetite. While it has a nice atmosphere, if this restaurant weren't across the street from the Pantages, I don't think it could stay in business. The inside is very different from the outdoor patio. Outside the feeling is cozy and nice; inside its dark and noisy. Definately plan to sit outside.

    The out door patio is very pretty and lends itself to a leisurely meal. The food itself was hit or miss. We started with the flatbread and pork rillette, which were both quite good. The flatbread was crisp and flavorful and the rillette was smooth and creamy. We then ordered the meatball, which seemed undercooked and bland. Next was the fried chicken and waffle, which I felt was underwhelming- bland with the maple syrup overpowering all other flavors. I had a Manhattan which was pleasant, though nothing out of the ordinary and my companion had the Penicillin which smelled as you would expect, but was actually quite tasty. Service was attentive and knowledgable, but overall, due to the hit or miss quality of the food I doubt I'd go back.

    This place is right across the street from Pantages, so they've got no real incentive to do great things. Food and cocktails were middling but priced accordingly.

    We always come here before going to the Pantages. A great place for vegans (me) and omnivores (my son) alike. I had the hummus, which had a nice kick, and the roasted cauliflower, for which I would make a special trip back. Delicious! My son devoured the pork meatballs and loved his first charcuterie plate. The atmosphere is very upbeat, the service is friendly and knowledgeable, and the vibe is foodie/hip/chic-but-comfortable.
