Very accommodating hostess, making sure we were able to sit outside. It's a large restaurant, with two inside and two outside dining areas. One of the inside and one of the outside areas were hosting private parties.

Real Spanish tapas, very expertly made and delicious. The only disappointment was the Spanish tortilla, which was not exactly the right texture, but was really more of an omelette. Paella for two was a terrific value at $30.

A large menu, so plenty to come back again to try.

This was my second time here and it was as superb as the first time
my friend and I shared a bottle of Sculpterra, started with the Caesar salad, had the filet mignon ( To die for!! tender and tasty), then the shrimp, De Jamon Serrano
( very light, wished I could have more), green beans, the Berenjena Asada full of flavor and to top things off, the Lentejas!! our waitress Masha ( I hope I spelled that right) was amazing, very attentive and kept checking in on us! we didn't have to get anyone's attention to pick up empty plates or order stuff, there was another person who kept coming in and out of the kitchen serving and picking up ( she was like the energizer bunny. nonstop) Definitely will be back to try the other stuff on the menu!!

Food is very good but service is typically slow. Servers seem overworked. Shocked that we had to pay for regular ice tea refills at $3 a pop. No other restaurant in Los Angeles charges for ice tea refills. Not a good look for this restaurant.

Excellent waiter, delicious food and refreshing sangria. Vino never disappoints. Saw two people (manager types) with mask below their nose. Didn’t like the fans blowing with mist since this can spread viruses should there be one present.

Great food and service.
Old school look but overall a good neighborhood hang any night of the week.

They could use an upgrade of decor but it’s quaint as is

We definitely will be back
Food was much better than expected

The back patio is wonderful! The food and sangrias were delicious. The service was good but a little slow, but I think they were a little under staffed. We will go again soon!

Everything was enjoyable. The food was very good and the price was reasonable. The only negatives were that they brought us the wrong empanadas and the music over the speakers outdoors was told loud. Otherwise a very nice experience.

We got the paella which has been terrific in the past but tonight it was a bit overcooked. It was still good but not as good as usual. Some of it was singed on the edges and had to scrape a bit to get off. Still good, just not great.

We have been coming here for many years and it never disappoints.
Last night, we asked for water refill and never got it. (Not a big deal. Just to let you know) Everything else was great.

The sidewalk dining experience was not terrific. I should have been informed ahead of time that I was not going to be seated on the main patio so I could have chosen either inside seating or to cancel my reservation.

I cannot say enough good things about our dinner at Vino!! It was a long-awaited, post-pandemic, celebratory Girls Night and everything was PERFECT: gorgeous tented patio, delicious food (even better than we'd remembered from previous visits) and absolutely fantastic service including letting us enjoy a leisurely evening without pressure to turn over the table. We will definitely be back!!

I was disappointed with my dinner at Vino. My boyfriend had to wait at least 20 minutes for his glass of wine, and we didn’t see our waitress that entire time. It wasn’t until we were able to flag down another waiter that he received his wine and we were able to order our food. I ordered the sautéed calamari and morcilla, both of which were quite bland. The menu said the morcilla came with chickpeas, but it did not and instead sat in a shallow pool of oil. Also, I could tell it was over cooked because most of it was crumbly. My boyfriend had the croquetas, which didn’t seem fresh because they weren’t that crispy. Despite the disappointing service and food, we enjoyed the ambiance and the guitarist.

The food is excellent. Our waiter was terrible. Maybe a bit homophobic. Made us feel like he couldn’t wait for us to leave. Inattentive and rude. The manager did her best to turn it around which we appreciated and if not for her we wouldn’t be back. For tapas they are one of the best in the valley but that waiter needs to go

Had a fantastic date night here- delicious food, romantic and relaxing atmosphere. We ordered a bottle of wine to ourselves from their stacked wine list. We filled up on small plates but I would love to get one of the entrees next time. Service was friendly. We found parking off Ventura pretty easily.

After a last minute reservation (on Mother’s Day) returning home from vacation, we had a delightful experience at this small and friendly Tapas and wine bar, with a guitarist entertaining in the background. The service was prompt and friendly and the food and wine were excellent. Highly recommended.
