    Our first visit to Wood & Vine was for dinner before a show at the Pantages. The food was excellent, if a bit over priced. Be aware that the menu is all small, sharing plates. Our server did a great job and we had no problem getting to the show on time. I would go back.

    It was a special occasion for us. So, we had high expectations. Unfortunately, not met. The service felt rushed and our food came cold. The patio was nice. However, the seats extremely uncomfortable. The wine selection was restricted and they don't have espresso, only regular coffee. We had the brownie for desert - that was awesome!

    We sat upstairs & it was so dark we couldn't see the menu nor the food without using cellphone apps for light. At one point the tiny candle on the table died & it was even darker. Service was adequate - we were also given the wrong bill. Food was good, but had no idea what we were eating until we turned on the phone lights or checked the menu for descriptions. With 4 people we quickly ran out of menu choices that all would share.

    We were in the neighborhood to see a show at the Pantages, so we figured we'd see about brunch for the four of us at Wood & Vine. First timers, we were seated promptly at 11:00am when they opened, were immediately served, and the parade of dishes were fantastic. Priced fair, they were foodie worthy. The mimosas, however, at $12, really?

    It was opening night for "Kinky Boots"at the Pantages so the place was packed. We had a reservation for 6:15 and although checking in took 10 minutes, we were seated within 5 minutes of checking in. There is nothing pretentious about this place. We sat on the patio and it was comfortable and inviting. For 2 we ordered one each of the Shortrib, Chicken & Waffle, Brussels sprouts and Butterscotch pot de crème. More than enough food. I rated the service as moderate because I didn't really know who our server was. Someone stopped by our table and took our order and said she would pass it along to our server. Everyone just kind of pitched in and helped everyone else. We just didn't know who to ask when we needed something. Everything was delicious and the setback was minor. I will definitely come back and would not hesitate to recommend this place.

    My wife found Wood and Vine while looking for a place close to the Pantages theater where we go for our season ticket showings every month or so. Wood and Vine had amazing food, very chill ambience, and really attentive service. In fact, when a couple of things happened to have run out on their menu, they offered another free dish. Their chef is a godsend...amazing tapas style dishes that are really unique and delicious!

    My guest & I sat outside & when we finally had someone acknowledge us after much waiting, were informed that the heaters didn't work. They filled my guest's water glass ONLY A THIRD OF THE WAY AND NEVER RETURNED TO FILL IT. As we began to order, the waitress (blond bob) informed us that 2 dishes weren't available. So we had to rethink our entire order & without the help of the menus. She suggested the brussel sprouts. I received the brussel-sprouts w a mouth full of meat that I don't eat. We returned it & the remade portion was INEDIBLE. It was incredibly salty & VISIBLY burnt to a crisp. Our amazing waitress gave us the bill without asking if we wanted anything more after I had ONLY 2 BITES OF DESSERT. WILL INFORM RESTO COMMUNITY OF FAIL

    This was my second time at the restaurant. The service was good and the people were friendly. Although the food was tasty enough (we ordered four things and most things we enjoyed), the food service was a little bit slow. We worried that our food wouldn't arrive in time enough as we had an evening show at the Pantages Theatre across the street. The truffle oil chips were very good. The food was a bit on the salty side for my party's tastes, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

    I was looking for a bar and grill near the Pantages, but I didn't check out the menu or anything about the restaurant. The location was perfect: across Hollywood Blvd. from the Pantages. The restaurant is unique in that it serves only snacks, shared plates, and desserts as its meal selections. It has a lovely bar and huge drinks menu. We were going to Pippin, so we didn't take advantage of any of the alcoholic beverages. We shared a snack (appetizer) of olives and almonds in olive oil. We had a full meal of three shared plates: eggplant crostini, brussels sprouts, and sliced duck breast. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the duck, which was to die for. This was indeed a truly fortuitous find.

    My husband and I sat at a small table upstairs. We ordered the olive appetizer, a salad (both without the cheese), a duck entree and a short rib entree. Every bite was absolutely delicious. I wish there was more butternut squash puree and sauce with the duck, since we were sharing. Server let us taste a wine before choosing and I'm so glad because we decided not to get our first pick, a white, and ordered a bottle of red instead. We probably could have gotten away with one less dish...no room for dessert!

    The people were perfectly nice and the patio is great, but the food and service were both seriously lacking. Our food came 5 minutes before our cocktails that we ordered when we sat down, and the food was luke warm as though it had been sitting under a heat lamp. I liked this place in theory, but definitely wouldn't return.

    We had an hour and a half before our curtain at the Pantages, and we barely made it. We were seated upstairs, and basically ignored. Food was just okay. We chose the restaurant because it's right across the street from the theatre, but that's about the only positive aspect to the place. Also, they have building maintenance going on currently, with scaffolding outside, which makes the place hard to find when you're driving down Hollywood Blvd. That will be fixed eventually, of course.

    We were seated immediately and our server kept bugging us to order and then disappeared for long periods of time and she wasn't that busy. We were there early 5:30. All the plates were shared and they didn't give us extra utensils so we had to use the ones we were eating with. Two of the dishes were okay. One was really bad (the eggplant). They didn't explain the menu to us or the dishes we would be eating. They just wanted us to hurry up and finish so they could have the table.

    Four of us needed an interesting place to eat prior to attending a play nearby (not the Pantages, directly across the street) and someone suggested Wood & Vine. Great idea! We ate on the large patio, which is an open space surrounded by tall buildings. (I wonder what happens when it rains!) Everything is "little plates", so we ordered 6 and shared them. Service was hit-or-miss, but friendly, and so was the food (not the friendly part). Of the 6 items, one was awful (eggplant and sweet potato on a piece of soggy bread - yech!), one was blandly odd (pork ribs) and the remaining four were delicious. We ordered 3 drinks and one dessert between us. The $10 parking is almost unavoidable and that's not valet, which they don't have.

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 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.

    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!
