They charged 20% services fee on a wine bottle and drinks . We were there less then 40 mins and only saw the waiter to order, bring bottle and glasses and check.

The sea bass tasted great, but that’s where it ended. Ambiance is rustic shabby-chic, sat on metal bottomed outdoor French cafe’ style chairs. Water was served regularly, but at room temperature or warmer. Food is served as it is prepared... waited 30 minutes for first plate, and 10 more minutes for the bass. The waiter was polite but never provided updates on the meal. The fixed 20% tip probably didn’t encourage him. I had noted in our reservation it was my wife’s birthday... they never acknowledged. Unfortunate.

We arrived early around 5:30 and it was very quiet. The service started off excellent, but then got a little worse as they got busier. The food was very good for the most part as were the drinks except they ran out of one of their cocktail ingredients. In my opinion that should NEVER happen. It's not like it's a fresh food item that they might sell out of on any given night.

The restaurant is also a bit pricey. It was $200 for 2 people including tax and mandatory 20% service fee. That was for 1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1 side dish, 2 desserts, and 6 drinks.

Family style shared plates is perfect even for a party of two! We had the Caesar salad (pretty basic), the crispy Brussels sprouts (I would get them again!), and the fried chicken and waffle (good marriage of sweet,savory and salty). The gin drink was delish (Engineer?). Atmosphere is lovely, not pretentious, not too casual, not brash. Best part of the night was the service from all staff.

Food was great; however small portions. Service was a little slow - but great atmosphere. Perfect for a night with friends or if you're heading or to a show at Pantages or for drinks / snacks after the show.

Great place for social dining. Have eaten here a number of times before shows at the Pantages theatre (across the street). Most plates are sharable, and are served as they are cooked (rather than served as a complete course).

We sat outside. The noise from the nearby air conditioners was very annoying, plus the music was aggressive and very loud and not great for eating. The service was less than great, too - no one seemed to really be very attentive.

The Caesar salad was pretty bland. The pork shanks were pretty good, but not what I expected. And the Thai rice noodles were way too salty, and had 4 shrimp for the added protein.

Very nice restaurant with an interesting menu. The service was friendly and outstanding. Only complaint was the very high noise level in the outside seating. Not the fault of the restaurant! There is some very loud machinery in an adjacent building. Possibly this will be quieter when the weather is cooler, since it's probably air conditioning equipment making the noise.

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.
