Wonderful! The food and drinks were amazing, and our server, Alec, took good care of us. He pointed us to great drinks, a great bottle of wine and was attentive throughout!

We had a great experience. The location was so convenient to the Hollywood Pantages. The server was so attentive to our needs to have our food out ASAP to be on at the show with a lot of time to spare. Thank you!

Great food, atmosphere and location particularly if going to the theater.

Valet parking would be a great add and price range is a little on the high side but food was very good.

I went to this restaurant a few years ago with my daughter before a show at the Pantages and it had good food and service. Our recent trip did not measure up to our previous experience. Service was ok, but not as good as prior visit. The food was the big disappointment of the evening. We started off with the charcuterie (meat and cheese) plate ($28 plus tax 10% and mandatory Service fee in lieu of tipping 20% = $36+/-). The meat was pepperoni slices, ham slices and ham cubes - like lunch meat ham. It seemed very cheap. I expect a prosciutto to be in the mix on a charcuterie plate at a minimum, but it was not. The cheese was good, but variety was poor with two bries as part of the 4 cheeses on the plate. A simple dollop of apricot jam would have gone a long way on the charcuterie plate as well.
We ordered to share the main dishes/sides as recommended. We ordered the halibut, chicken & waffles and shells and cheese. The halibut was good and came on a bed of cooked spinach that was well seasoned. The chicken waffles was odd in a bad way. It came with diced sweet potato on top, but it had the look of cubed fruit (peaches?). The chicken was over cooked and I couldn't get my knife through some of it. The waffle was mushy, even before I put any syrup on it. The shells and cheese were edible, but they tasted a little chalky and the kids said they tasted smoky. They also had a crusty garnish on top that didn't really do anything for the dish. I think they can
The prices for what we got were high. I don't mind paying for good food, but paying that much for pretty bad food is always tough.
We picked this restaurant because it is right across the street from the Pantages and we didn't want to park twice or have a long walk. We would have been better off walking to Hollywood & Highland and going to a chain restaurant.

They marked us as a no-show before it was corrected, but we arrived 20 minutes late due to a traffic jam. Food was good but expensive for what we ordered. Parking was 20 dollars with a validation at the W hotel.

Our 2nd Time for Dinner at 'Wood & Vine' before plays at the Pantages. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Our server Jason was helpful and suggested a few plates we might share. We had Cocktails and shared a Scotch Egg. Ordered Beef Burger Sliders which were great and split a salad. Enjoyed our dinner and walked across the street and enjoyed 'Miss Saigon'.

We were there before the show at the pantages and a lot of the cliental were also dressed nicely so I assume there were there for the same reason. Walking in the front desk attendant didn’t seem very friendly nor happy that I made the reservation 5 minutes before walking in but we wanted something a little more upscale then the places next to it. When walking in my mother in law is older so I asked for something downstairs, she stated that the only option was their communal table which was outside. It was fine but we also walked by 4/5 tables that would have accommodated our party of 5 but no biggie just upsetting especially seeing that the party that took the tables finally came in when we were paid out. But the great part was the service and food!! They were on it with our water refills and checking on us. The New Standard was one of the best burgers I’ve had in awhile so compliments to the chef for that greatness. Overall places for improvement is the sound of the outside area due to the fans from the other buildings and better customer service from their front desk. Highlights are the delicious food and the inventiveness of the servers and the other table attendants. I’d visit again, just maybe when I book well in advance or don’t when I can just avoid the hostess.

We really enjoyed Wood & Vine. We had Sunday, 6:30pm tickets for Pantages and it was nice to find a restaurant that was open early enough so we could have a relaxing dinner and was also delicious! (Right across the street from the theater was also a bonus.) Opted for cocktials, Sage Advice and Accomplice were both tasty. Our server Brendan was friendly and helped us make our food choices. Since the plates are shared we weren't sure of how much to order. He recommended an entree and a side or two. Sounded good. We shared Tuna Crudo appetizer, Crisply Brussels and Roasted Sweet Potatoes sides and the Halibut entree. It was plenty of food and we still had room to share desert. Brendan recommended the donut holes and we agree. Give them a try!

went with a date. We had drinks, which were good. How can u ruin a "on the rocks" Brussel sprouts were fantastic, Impossible meatballs were superb, you would never know it was vegan, and the lamb chops (which were not on the menu) were excellent. I am going back next week.

The food was over priced & mediocre at best , few entree selections and noisy as all get out. We would never ever go back there again as we consider it a rip off. Service was excellent but not worth it paying that kind of money $$$$ when its a 1 star place. I mean 6 entrees and one was meatless vegan Italian dish and a hamburger for $24 for 2 people, and a steak dinner for 2 @ $129. And it came with cold bacon bits. What the heck do they think they can get away with it and the customer not having a buyers remorse

When I booked with OpenTable, I asked for outdoor seating, I was seated indoors and upstairs (not preferred).

Our table for 6 was a very large round table, and it was difficult to hear each other over the loud noises. Would have preferred seating that was closer more compact to allow for conversation.

The food was okay - fried chicken, average brussel sprouts.

The location was convenient to the Pantages.

This is my new go-to for pre Pantages dinner. I have tried many restaurants in the area but overall this is the best. You should have a reservation, we've been turned away when we didn't, but definitely worth it. We had the chicken and waffles, the fish (forgot what kind, maybe halibut) and the donuts for dessert, all were great. The server was nice and attentive, but the noise level on the second floor was a little too much for conversation. Next time we'll try the patio when it's not so hot out. Overall the best dining experience I've had in that part of Hollywood.

I thought the person that was our main waiter ha the personality of a door knob. We asked for suggestions and he had none and suggested we read the menu.

I personally think that having a set tip does not motivate certain people to be at their best.

I would not go back because of the service.

What a great place! You feel welcomed by everyone as soon as you walk in the door. The outside patio is wonderful. Best dishes were the smoked fish dip, french fries & butterscotch dessert. The people next to us raved about the pork shanks which looked amazing. We will definitely be back - especially before a show at the Pantages which is just across the street.

What a gem of a restaurant! In trying to find a place to eat prior to our Pantages show, my husband and I opted for Wood & Vine after searching Yelp and getting and additional recommendation from a friend. From the delish cocktails to the outrageous chocolate dessert, our meal was a delight. The service was quick, our drinks were constantly full, and the food (especially the burgers and brussel sprouts) were top notch!
