MAIN & VINE brings a piece of Northern California to the heart of Philadelphia’s Main Line. Celebrated for its diversity in taste, Northern California embraces all palates in the community it serves with an added sense of sophistication. Credited as the birthplace of the modern farm to table movement, the region resources the freshest, most natural ingredients from its own backyard, a practice that has since become a way of life by many.
While famous for producing some of the finest wines in the world, Northern California is also home to several of the top craft breweries in production today, and prides itself on creating such cocktails as the iconic gin martini, pisco punch, and cable car just to name a few.
It is this craft and culinary union that embodies the MAIN & VINE spirit and approach. Our bistro welcomes guests to experience the best of Northern California for themselves, in a sophisticatedly hip, yet relaxed atmosphere.

Had an early dinner date on Saturday night before seeing a play at Villanova. By its appearance, restaurant looked very attractive and quiet, but the music was set at a high level that interfered with quite conversation. The service was good and to its credit, the managers were very attentive to us, but my pork chop nearly slid off the plate onto the floor as it was placed on the table, a quick flick of the wrist by the server prevented a near disaster. The menu was quite appealing and we enjoyed the taste of our meals. Thanks!

After just returning from vacation in Sonoma/Napa, CA, and we thought it would be a fun time to visit Main & Vino for their Northern California style. What a great decision. We both said that this was better than any meal we had on our trip. From apps, to drinks to entrees- it was amazing!

Our waiter, Christian was very friendly and knowledgeable.

We will definitely be back soon!

Our server Jackie was awesome, she was pleasant, friendly and helpful with the menu selections. My guest and I enjoyed the Beet Hummus, absolutely delicious and with the hearth baked sourdough, so divine!! And the fish tacos were fantastic. Overall, an "A++". Definitely recommend M&V, for just a quick lunch. Thank you, SH

Main & Vine is a good place which I hope makes it in it's current location. Unfortunately, the server was not very good and messed up on multiple matters on a dairy allergy (which she admitted to having the same allergy), but proceed to serve a dish which contained a good amount of cheese. She served it after she said she asked kitchen, which I know she didn't ask the kitchen staff. Also, charged for a higher price wine which when we ordered a less expense wine. The place is really good, but this server was not so good. Everyone makes mistakes which is expected, but this server made a number of mistakes.

We had a last minute date night and found this as an option on a Saturday night. The ambiance is wonderful, nicely updated, comfortable and clean. Nice bar area and seating is fun. The service was wonderful from the moment we stepped in until we left. The food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, steak and oven roasted chicken. Everything was great ! We would definitely recommend

Overall it was good, the only thing was the desserts, there were four of us, the churros were over cooked and too much cinnamon, my husband got the olive oil cake and said it was just ok, the other person got the flourless choc torte and took two bites and said it wasn’t good

Main and Vine has a nice interior style, despite its office park location. It has clearly become a favorite destination as the bar was packed by 6:45. The food was well prepared and considered. The cauliflower soup was delicious. My only complaint, which is too strong of a word for this, is that the service was too attentive. There was someone constantly at the table, filling water, asking about the food. It’s nice to be checked on, but I would also like to have a conversation uninterrupted. Tough balance for waiters, I realize. Overall, we had a lovely dinner and will return.

The food at Main and Vine is consistently excellent as is the service.We all enjoyed our meals from the scallops to the pizza. The only downside is that it was very difficult to hear our dinner partners as it was extremely crowded and th acoustics leave sometime to be desired. This will not stop me from returning.

Had a delicious lunch and great service as always. Loved the new seasonal additions/alterations to the menu. Definitely try the new beer hummus, the presentation is beautiful and my friend had the bucatini pasta with fresh asparagus and goat cheese. She wasn’t sure she would be able to eat it all but it was the perfect portion size and she cleaned her plate. We will be back!

Food was decent but overpriced. The most disconcerting thing about the meal was that during most of it an employee was furiously sweeping and brushing dirt from underneath the table right next to us and spraying down the table legs. This went on for at least 20 minutes less than a foot away from where we were trying to eat. Probably never go back

I have visited this restaurant once before and had a great experience. On this occasion we celebrated a friend's birthday. All of the food was excellent except two of us got the strip steak; one was medium rare and one was rare. They both came back well done, so we politely asked for two more steaks. They brought them out and they were cooked almost the exact same way. No pink whatsoever to the meat. Our server was apologetic and the manager also came and apologized. They took the steaks off our bill. I was mostly concerned about their chef and stated my comments as such, they need to do some retraining on how to properly cook a steak. We will try again in the future because the rest of our meals were great and we loved the restaurant in general. Great wine selection as well.

This is the second time we’ve been here because our intitial experience was great. The restaurant recently changed the menu and we weren’t in love with the changes. Salmon was good - a little over cooked. Swordfish portion was so small it looked like an appetizer and my boyfriend ended up getting a second meal!! Our soup came out pretty lukewarm and then the side order of carrots were
Completely cold - which the server fixed and the manager gave us great customer service (which is rare these days). We wouldn’t need to go back, though it is a cool spot.

We should have spoken up and regret not being moved to another part of the restaurant since it was so noisy we couldn’t hear one another speak. Food was good!

All was good except the $6 charge for bread. This is insulting and begins the evening on a bad note. If people want bread they will ask for it, and it should be free as it is at 99% of restaurants.
