    This was my second time dining at this restaurant. The food portions are small but the choices and taste are exquisite. Our waitress (Melanie) was extremely pleasant, polite, and was knowledgeable in describing each dish. She helped us modify some of the ingredients in a few dishes. The ambience of the upstairs dining area was perfect. A great place for dining and conviently located across from the Pantages Theatre.

    We had excellent service; very personable, helpful and followed up on things with us. Menu a little limited if someone in group is picky, but we loved everything we chose (with a little help from the wait staff). Also had some interesting wines that were not the 'run of the mill'. Enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return.

    We needed a place near the Pantages Theater; this is literally across the street. Ambiance looks deceptively rustic when you first walk in, but we were delighted with the charming outdoor seating area just behind the bar. Wood & Vine is a shared-plate play; dishes brought to your table as they are prepared, so your french fries might show up before your salad. Aside from those sides, we enjoyed Brussels Sprouts (baked with chorizo and feta), duck breast, short rib and chicken & waffle, the last mentioned a far fancier take than one finds at Roscoe's. Tried two of their three dessert, warm brownie with bourbon ice cream and butterscotch pot de creme, both yummie, and since it was my birthday, both were comped. Fun place; we'll be back.

    I've been to Wood & Vine a few times now and have consistently enjoyed it. It's ideal to be able to sit in the back courtyard. But inside isn't bad. Either way, don't let the modest storefront fool you -- inside and out back the place is spacious and lovely.

    It was the perfect restaurant for an after matinee show at the Pantages Theater. Walked across the street for an early dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was delicious, presentation and service were excellent. Patio chairs a little uncomfortable, but otherwise I would highly recommend and would go back again.

    The ambiance is cool but that's about where the pluses stop. The wait staff is indifferent, the menu very limited and the food comes out, tapas style, randomly. Some of the dishes were quite good, but all were miserly in their portions and too expensive. How does $22 for 2 scallops sound? There are too many other similar restaurants offering good service and fair prices to go along with their just-as-cool ambiance. Won't be back.

    Wood & Vine was delicious! I will definitely be going back - I loved the creative small plates, the delicious, seasonal ingredients, and the beautiful plating. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, amusing, and very helpful with selecting dishes. Everything we had was delicious: watermelon and beet salad, braised bacon (like pork belly), sea bass, albacore tartare, and the cocktails were creative twists on classics as well as some innovative, new flavor combinations. The list of bourbons, whiskeys, and scotches is impressive as well. We loved Wood & Vine and look forward to returning soon!

    We were looking for a place for dinner before heading over to the Pantages. This place was close and had really good reviews so we decided to give it a try - what a find! Sat in the back patio, which I have to agree is the place to sit. We had great service - no long waits for anything. For cocktails, I had to try the Magnolia (OMG) and my husband got the Black Manhattan, and we shared three plates: #1 Truffle Fries - four stars. These are not on the menu, but for an additional $2 the will make these for you. #2 Little Gem Salad - 2.5/3 stars. The blue cheese was a bit too strong (and I love blue cheese), and all the goodies were at the bottom of the bowl. #3 Chicken & Waffles - 5 stars!!! Will definitely go back!

    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.

    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.
