Reservation for 2 at 6:30PM. We were quickly seating, and a server came to us immediately took our drink orders. When she brought the drinks, she took our food orders. We had a dip tray as an appetizer. I ordered the bacon-wrapped shrimp, and my wife ordered the red snapper. The shrimp were VERY tasty, as was the red snapper. Our server was very attentive, and the chef even came out and talked to us for a bit. All in all, an excellent experience. This was our 2nd time at this restaurant, and it has become our favorite place to go in Woodstock.

Was excited about this restaurant during its construction and finally got a chance to visit. Decor was very nice but greeted by 3 hostesses seemed a bit much but we arrived before the main dinner service. Our waitress didn't know the menu (she said it was new) and was confused by many of our questions about the menu and the $50 bottle of wine that we ordered. Upon observing the staffing. there were 4-5 people in the kitchen, 3 behind a ~10 seat bar, and 2-3 waitresses and someone who appeared to be the manager/owner bussing tables.

We ordered the shared appetizer that was supposed to be hot, but all 3 dishes were lukewarm at best. My lamb meatballs were tasty but actually cold in the middle. The flavor was pretty good but I was turned off by the cold quail lollipops as well. No sooner did our appetizer arrive did the tapas that we ordered arrive too. We ordered the Guinness Brisket and Bacon wrapped shrimp. The shrimp was very good and proper temperature but the brisket was cold and 90% fat. Not the juicy kind of fat that makes the brisket taste delicious.....just fat. Having lived in Texas for 15+ years I know the wonderful flavor that can come from a brisket braised in Guinness, but this was not even close. The mashed potatoes that the brisket was served on were also cold and runny.

Needless to say, we were disappointed by the food and the quality of service for the $100 we spent. We won't be going back. Nice try for an upscale Tapas, Wine, and Dessert place for Woodstock but I would be surprised if this place survives.

Meh, small portions were new to me and my wife. Food seemed fresh we never waited for anything. We left thinking that everything matched our bill such as atmosphere, service but we were suprised that all entries and dessert tasted a little bland.

We found last minute reservations for Rootstock and Vine on the Open Table app for a party of 10 at 7:30. I was surprised but they showed open times from 7:00-8:45 pm but went ahead and booked it at 6:45. I figured maybe a cold rainy Saturday night would contribute to that so after our group finished up at an event, we headed over to Rootstock and Vine for drinks. I received a call from Rootstock at 7:15 stating that Open Table had overbooked them and they could not accommodate us until after 9:00. We explained our situation (10 people in 5 separate cars heading their way) and finally spoke with a manager. They ended up putting us at 2 separate tables (not ideal but not worth waiting 90 minutes). They said that Open Table routinely overbooks them. I have never had this issue and have used this app several times. I guess the lesson I learned was when I book, call and verify.

Could have been great but the guy playing live music was so loud it was impossible to carry on a conversation. We were not there to support him but rather enjoy a meal with family who we hadn’t seen in a while. Luckily, management was able to squeeze us into a table in the back, but that could have not been the case and that would have ruined the evening.

Pretty loud, though that may just have been the table near us. Drink selection was good, not overly pricey. 2 of our 4 plates were good. The barbacoa taco wasn't. Meat was bland and the tortillas were soggy. The black bean hummus was bland. The Greek chickpea salad was amazing because of the French feta. The bistro steak had really nice flavor and was cooked well.
The real disappointment was the dessert. Got the connfectioner's plate and it didn't have all the items from the menu description. There were these strange completely flavorless rectangles of dough on it. The dough in tarts tasted like uncooked refrigerator pie dough. The coffee mousse was gritty.
We've wanted to go there for a while and now I regret that we did. Not worth the price tag.

If you get more than 1-2 plates be prepared for a $200

Awesome staff, somolier was amazing. We spent 2 hours trying new wines and great tapas. It was such a joy to enjoy our food, wine, and conversation. When the somolier learned we are visiting a lesser known wine region in France in a few weeks he brought out 2 bottles for us to sample. I'm pretty sure you can not find wines from this region in many places, esp OTP! This place would be good for a light dinner and quick drink, too. I just love the idea and atmosphere here! It can be quite pricey, though. I would say $35-50 per person. But for special occasions I will come back. LOVE!

If you’re going to offer an iPad for your patrons to pick their bottle of wine you might want to actually have the wines on the list. And please when a customer picks a particular glass of wine that you offer by the glass don’t pour something else and say sorry were out of that one here’s something else.

We had a great time. Selected from a variety of options and the wine paired with each course was excellent. A lot of noise as we were seated next to the bar. Service was very good but not excellent. The meal was great., first class. The sweet corn creme brulee had my daughter wanting more. We'll go again.
