Off Vine is a historic Hollywood landmark that offers a romantic and cozy setting to enjoy lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. The fine Californian cuisine is as fresh and light as the airy atmosphere of the oasis-like Off Vine, located in the heart of busy Hollywood.
A meal at Off Vine might start with grilled duck sausage or wild mushroom salad, both local favorite appetizers. Dinner features something for everyone, including shrimp and couscous-stuffed tomatoes, Beluga lentils with grilled zucchini and eggplant or braised short ribs. Don�t forget to try the Off Vine dessert list that includes the famous souffl�s and a variety of dessert wines.
The food was delicious! The waiter was rude and rushed. He acted like we annoyed him. The manager and busboy were great! I would NEVER go back and have the same waiter. If he's in the service industry, he needs to have a better attitude.
Good spot for dinner before heading off to the Pantages Theatre, a few blocks away. Our server was friendly and helpful, but we waited too long to get our food...and some of it wasn't hot enough.
This is the second time our group of ladies have gone for dinner.
We go to the Pantages theaterband love the food and service here.
It's very cozy , but a little far from theater for walking.
overall , great restaurant and we will be back!
We came here for dinner before a show at the Pantages. Valet parking was very reasonable and they kept the car until after the show. The walk to the Pantages was less than ten minutes...perfect! The food was very good. Service was terrffic. The atmosphere was not fussy. I plan to come back many times!
The food quality and service were excellent. The ambience was a perfect mix of quiet and romantic enough for a date night that included the theatre. Not shabby for a couple soon to celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary.
This is a wonderful restaurant in a craftsman house. It was our anniversary and they treated us with a wonderful chocolate souffle. Good food and wonderful service. I highly recommend it. This is our favorite pre-theatre dining experience.
cozy in the ivy walled outdoor eating area - makes you forget you're in the city. Ended up chatting with a family at another table for a good long while at brunch. good food and was able to get a seat without too much trouble as a party of 1 walk in once prime time for brunch had passed.
For years I've been a huge fan of 'Off Vine'. I recently went there for Sunday brunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. The service is always good and everyone's super friendly. But to be blunt - the food was meh. We ordered hot baked cinnamon rolls as an appetizer and what we were served was frozen Pillsbury rolls reheated smothered in a sugar glaze. I have kids. I've baked these rolls. They're nothing to write home about. And worse, is that they were stale too. Seriously? Hard rolls we needed knives to cut open. I complained and the waiter felt bad and took it off the bill. But the point is, that should never have been on the menu AT ALL if they weren't freshly home baked cinnamon rolls.
The main course was flavorless and we both left half our food there. The place was busy and everyone seemed rushed and the meal truly was uninspired. I am no longer a fan and this was my last meal there.
Charming ambiance. Good fun waiters. But expensive for what you get and food only so so.
Food is great but we were there for brunch . Service was VERY slow
Off Vine is our go to place when we go to the Pantages. The food and service are always wonderful.
Food was delicious and service was impeccable. We were treated like everyone was so glad we were there.
Quite honestly the food was just ok. My wife's salmon is better and the carrot mixture served with it was too sweet. My Chicken Piccata had a nice flavor but nothing special but the mashed potatoes were much better than the carrot side dish. The chocolate mouse dessert was very good and the berry pie tasted fresh.
I came here with my Mom and Auntie before catching a show at the Pantages and it was the perfect location and atmosphere for us. It's set up like a cozy little cottage with a porch and everything. The good was great and we all enjoyed what we had !
We sat outdoors on a beautiful evening. Hard to believe you are only a few minutes from Hollywood or Sunset when the restaurant is so quaint and quiet. Food was FANTASTIC - the appetizers, entrees, and desserts were all just amazing. Not inexpensive or super affordable - at the high side of the "$" designation for sure. Our waitress was also really kind and pleasant - she knew some of the other patrons by name and was very attentive with us as well.
Food was good especially the soured by our waiter was as bad as I've seen in a long . Took our order and ignored us all night. Had to ask other for water and to go box.
I liked the converted house feel of the restaurant and the porch area for dining. Portions are large and the prices reasonable. The biggest drawback is a lot of street noise due to the neighborhood, but a good option if you are going to the Pantages 2 blocks away and you only need to park once. 3 of us enjoyed our entrees, one found it mediocre, and the food is best described as decent.
Service was terrible. We told the waiter we were seeing a show and we waited for our 2 salads for over 45 minutes. Had to bolt it down and run to the theater. No fun.
Great dining spot before the theater....
We love this cozy dining in a cute little cottage in the heart of Hollywood. The staff is very accommodating about getting you off to the theater on time. If you like and are able to, you can park there to eat and leave your car there for the theater. It is less than ten minute walk to the Pantages.
Can't beat Monday night 1/2 price menu. Any night the food is always good!
Terrific father's day venue. The restaurant is inside a very well kept vintage house. Oasis in the middle of Hollywood.
Special place - great people - excellent food choices - group of 10 included 2 vegetarians
I use to work at the medical offices 20 years
Ago..have never forgotten off vine.great service. Great experience. THANK YOU.
Great ambience! A hidden gem in the middle of the city...reminds you of old Hollywood. The waiters are friendly, helpful, but not snobby or condescending. You have to get one of the soufflé s for dessert-order it when you order your meal.
We were going to the theater and informed our waiter that was the case, so we needed our dinners to come out sooner than later in order to enjoy them (we arrived 2 hours before show time). The kitchen left us 45 min. to finish eating (really just less than an hour before the start of the show and we still needed to get the car from valet and drive to the show, so less than 45 min in fact)...this meant we were rushed (we sat for 30 min waiting for the entree after starters)...we like the restaurant, but it may not be reliable for prior to the theater.
went for dinner... had lentil veggie dish and hubby had chicken piccata. His chicken was overcooked and dry and wish was bland. My veggie dish was nice to look at but very boring in taste. Maybe breakfast and brunch is better...or this could be a hot spot for local theater goers, but this is not a place for foodies who want exquisite dining. As my husband said, it feels and tastes like we went to some grandmother's house. Quaint is their upside; uninventive dinner plates is the downside.
I've been to brunch few times before, the dinner food was just okay, not very testy
This is becoming my go-to place for dinner before the Pantages. This last trip, I had a daily special, a shrimp risotto. It was unbelievably good. On my way out, a young woman at the next table thanked me for looking so satisfied with my meal and silently encouraging her to order it as well; she really enjoyed it too.
Off Vine is one of those hidden gems that will have your dates say
ing "How in the world did you ever find this place?" Well, I just drove around Hollywood and went off Vine.
Great place for dinner with good friends and a nice walk to the
Pantages Theatre afterwards.
Great anniversary dinner. The souffle for dessert was half chocolate and half grand marnier and was outstanding.
Great place! We have been eating here for a long time. Great menu, very accommodating for my vegan husband and cute wait staff! ( just saying). Well run place . So convenient to the theater as well.
Delightful venue, great location, terrific service. But the food was inconsistent.
It had been several years since dining at Off Vine and we were not disappointed. The staff was very pleasant, food was delicious, and the setting was warm and lovely. A real gem of a restaurant.
The gracious yet homey atmosphere accommodates casually dressed and business or special event dining. It's just one block from Arclight Cinema and a 10-minute stroll from the Pantages. Emphasis is on comfort food, and the quality exceeds the moderate prices.
Quiet lunch getaway. Super polite and helpful waiters. Quaint ambiance.
Being able to easily park your car & at a reasonable fee, have a good Brunch and then go to the theater; makes the occasion relaxing and enjoyable.
The food at Off Vine was very good! Starting with the bread and spinach pesto, which you must request because it is not automatically handed to every table, to the dessert souffle, the food was excellent. The only qualm I had was in my seafood risotto, which was a daily special. It had squid, shrimp, and salmon. While the squid and shrimp were very good, I was not a big fan of having large chunks of salmon throughout the dish. It didn't seem to make sense in the dish along with all the other ingredients.
Other than the food, the atmosphere is wonderful! It is a very cozy place with great lightning and decor. The true feel of the vintage cottage is evident the moment you walk up. I would definitely recommend checking out Off Vine and maybe finding your new favorite date night spot!
Really enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance. Went for lunch on a Sat and the food was tasty and good size portions. Their burgers have a big thick patty and the Chinese chicken salad was fresh and had slivers of almonds and mandarin oranges. The souffle was delicious had the chocolate/raspberry combo. There's other flavors too. Gave us moist banana bread instead of regular bread before we ordered our meal. The service was wonderful the manager or owner and waiter were very nice and friendly and attentive. Water was refilled without having to ask. We sat out in the front patio of this bungalow home converted into a restaurant and the ambiance was pleasant with flowers, plants, loveseats, and greenery along the walls to cover you from the street. We were the only ones on the patio at the time and they never forgot about us and service was great.
Always have a great pre-theater dining experience here!
Loved the food, service and location. Dined here before walking to The Pantages for a play! Lovely evening all around.
