The last time I was at Wood & Vine was at least 3 or 4 years ago and my memory of that experience was much better than last night. The portion sizes were smaller, the food quality was not as good, and although my reservation asked if there was any special occasion and I selected "birthday" ...there was no birthday recognition by the servers or any of the staff which was a let down. The food was tasty...but the menu encouraging "sharing" is just... so not becoming of the portion sizes. 4 scallops...and you want people to share that? An 8 oz serving of short rib (if that) and you want people to share that? My moms boyfriend was still hungry when we left but in consideration of the county time limit per table we didn't order more. If you're going to encourage "sharing" give a shareable portion...I mean, seems logical to me. But anyhoo. It wasn't bad, but I doubt I'll be going back any time soon.
We are so happy to have Wood and Vine back! The patio in back is amazing and the service was outstanding. My favorite is the seabass...I get it every time!
The service was great, the food was delicious. Perfect for a date night since the menu is mostly shared plates. Would definitely recommend.
There is no greater dining establishment in the area! From the staff to the food it’s 100%!
How wonderful it is that Wood & Vine has reopened after closing during the pandemic. Once again, they do not disappoint. The scallops and sea bass were amazing and the hand-punched fries are a must. Leave room for desert, though, as you can’t go wrong with any of them. The service was terrific, too, and there was never a feeling of being rushed to turn the table. Their patio dining is the perfect setting for an escape to an enchanting evening. Whether it’s a romantic dinner or just hanging out with friends, it’s a wonderful atmosphere where you can actually have a conversation and hear what’s being said. It's a perfect destination for the pandemic emergence (and beyond).
To be honest, I only picked it because they had 1 available reservation. Once we got there, it was in retrospect a great fluke. We ordered Bourbon rushes (or something like that), and they were tasty. Perfect balance of strawberry, bourbon, honey, ginger and lemon. Good enough, that we ordered 3 apiece. We got the popcorn shrimp to start, then the linguine and shrimp and the short rib. Now, the food came out pretty shortly after ordering, so, I wasn’t expecting much. Then, I got a fork full of the short rib, mashed potatoes and sauce....yummm! All I can say is someone in that kitchen knows their way around some seasoning! It was delicious. I normally offer my dinner date to try some, but when I looked up from the plate...I had finished it all. The popcorn shrimp was perfectly cooked and the sauce had a little kick. The shrimp and linguine was also flavorful. My friend always asks for salt and pepper when we go out, but we needed none. The restaurant has an automatic 20% gratuity included in all bills and usually when I’ve seen that, the servers aren’t incentivized to be great. However, all the servers were super nice and attentive. Overall, a great dinner. Did I mention the prices were crazy reasonable?! I’ve paid double for short rib that was half as good. I’ll definitely go back...soon.
Amazing and sooo much fun
Perfect anniversary date night. Exceptional service. Our waiter Nock was outstanding. Food was delicious. They go above and beyond here and the ambience was wonderful. 10/10
Excellent attentive service that meant our drinks were constantly refilled and food was delivered promptly yet we were never rushed and we enjoyed a leisurely meal. Food was excellent - the spinach and artichoke dip was the best I’ve ever had. Such a simple, common dish that they elevated and made out of this world. Same with the watermelon salad - simple ingredients that combined to a delicious and unique dish. 5 star experience and we will be back!
Popcorn shrimp and burgers were delicious
Great location across from the Pantages theater and a couple of blocks from the Hollywood and Highland complex. Friendly staff and great food. Nice older building with modern touches. Nice selection of eclectic food and beverage.
Absolutely perfect restaurant. One of my favorites in LA!
As always, service and food were excellent. New additions to the menu are great. We had the tuna tartar, Chilean Seabass, Short Ribs, Brussel Sprouts and Fries. All equally fantastic and perfectly cooked. Outdoor seating, great friendly service, always a favorite place for us.
This was my second visit to Wood & Vine and I will definitely go back again if I'm in the area. The food was very good and the wines by the glass are quite nice. They let me taste a few to make my decisions and I really appreciate that. Our servers were very friendly and attentive! Also - it's a great spot for outdoor dining in the middle of Hollywood with no traffic noise or pollution!
I had a great time after the award show !
great staff and the food is super. will be back.
Good ambience, small drinks, limited menu, poor quality ingredients
Wood and Vine. Never disappoints. Food is always great. The drinks are prefect, the ambiance is truly Hollywood and the staff is the kindest.
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
We celebrated a birthday and birthday girl was congratulated by someone who looked like the manager
I had a reservation for 2ppl on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday, and at the last minute, 2 became 4. The maitre'd was able to push a couple of tables together to accommodate us, with the understanding that we'd only have an hour and a half to dine since it was a full night. Which was SO nice of him. We ordered a bottle of wine for the table, plus four appetizers, a side, and two entrees to share. Everything came out in a timely order, the food was incredibly delicious, and the service was stellar. We never felt like we were being rushed or that we wouldn't have time to eat everything. Plus the atmosphere was nice and cozy. 100% we will be coming back. Thanks to everyone at Wood and Vine for making our night so lovely!
We were thrilled to receive such a warm welcome back to Wood & Vine. The ambience on the patio just can't be beat. The food was incredible, we eat mainly a plant-based diet so we enjoyed the vegan options including the delicious brussels sprouts, the hand-punched french fries, and the light and refreshing vegetable risotto. The cocktails are of course a highlight here - we had the Accomplice and the Mezcalple. The server was attentive and friendly and all staff were wearing masks so it felt completely safe for our first big night out for dinner in over a year!
Loved Wood & Vine. The ambiance and out door seating was great, especially during covid. I will definitely be coming back.
Oh wow, what an amazing experience. I'm so glad we made reservations here and had our server Nick. He was so attentive, heart full, and really served us so well. The food was exceptional. The energy of the place was so intimate. It was overall 10 out of 10. Can't wait to be back and meet our favorite server Nick again. Thank you for setting the bar of how service and food should be.
Busy but great service
After being closed through the pandemic, Wood and Vine is back, and BETTER THAN EVER. I just had the best meal. The drinks are amazing, the place is BEAUTIFUL, and the service was the best I've ever had. I wish I could eat there everyday. Sit outside for the best experience!!!
Our server forgot to put in my order so I was sitting at the table for at least 10-15 min watching my friends eat before he came over again and I was able to ask about my plate.
The food was great though and drinks were good.
Truly my favorite spot for any occasion! Am
Great service all of the staff were super friendly and even brought us a complimentary drink and cookies with milk for dessert!
Love the food and ambiance. the popcorn shrimp is my fav!
First time back since they responsibly closed for a year to keep everyone safe from Covid. The upgraded space is amazing and the staff is great. The food is so good! And the new items like the watermelon salad and ricotta balls - so delicious! And of course Wally, the manager, is simply joy!
The watermelon salad was fantastic, as were the brussel sprouts and the lamb chops on the welcome back menu. For desert we had chocolate pound cake and mousse were also good. Service was excellent, got seated right away and the server (Eric) was very helpful in ordering drinks and dinner. The manager (Wally) came by a couple time to make sure everything was ok. Great evening, my date was impressed on my selection of Wood & Vine for dinner.
Mother’s Day dinner
Great atmosphere and service! Drinks and food both very good. Cool vibe and nice staff.
Staff was wonderful and accommodating. The food was perfectly prepared and was served in a timely manner. The shorts ribs melt in your mouth! Welcome back, Wood and Vine - we will be there often!
Loved it!!! Will absolutely be returning
Charming, beautiful, makes you feel like family. So glad W&V survived quarantine!
Staff were amazing. The host on duty went above and beyond to help guide one of our guests to the restaurant. The food was excellent. A bit pricey but well worth it.
We enjoyed their welcome back tasting menu with two signature drinks, fish tacos, braised short ribs, and the butterscotch desert for only $50!!!! It was delicious and the service was great!!!! Highly recommended for a fun night with friends or a date night!
Soo awesome wood and vine is back open! I use to work at Cleo restaurant across the street and wood and vine would be our after work hangout, I work at Yamashiro Hollywood now due to Cleo closing down. Glad to see Emilio is still working there he’s the best!
Nick our server is spectacular!!! So happy he is with you. I very much look forward to seeing him and that glorious food again!!!
