Place is hard to find, the seating is a bit tight, the menu was limited and the food subpar. Large portions and really good service... otherwise another overpriced diner in So Cal

I was surprised to find a delicious Indonesian Curry Shrimp alongside a Papardelle with a Pork Ragu and English Peas. The Focaccia Bread was "pillowy and unique" and the Salad with bleu cheese and crispy shallots was exceptional. My party and I shared many plates and they were all so "delish! We also had 2 bottles of a dry white... More

It's fun wandering through The Camp and finding Old Vine Cafe. Old Vine Cafe is relatively small and great for conversations. The staff is amazing and knowledgeable. The food...There are selections for various tastes and palates - sweet, savory, and comfort. I can't wait to go back and try dinner.

Dinner last night with a work colleague was just fantastic. We ordered a la carte rather than the pre fixe, as we had eaten a big lunch. All four dishes we ordered were spectacular, and the suggested wine pairings were also well chosen, even for me, a total wine geek. I am normally a meat eater, but they had two... More

Old Vine is a small, quaint, warm, unique dining experience with excellent food! I highly recommend you stick with their Prix Fixe menu options paired with Wine. Besides the food I really love their wine pairings. The wines are a mix of new and old world and always interesting. They serve wines you will typically not find anywhere else and... More

We enjoy going to Old Vine. The food is consistently excellent and the wine pairings are generally good. Admittedly we miss the raviolo, a truly amazing dish that was apparently time consuming and difficult to make. The gnocchi replacement is good but not as good. And the nice small setting is delightful. Service is friendly and attentive. Wish they would... More

have been here several times for brunch and always had a good meal but also came for dinner for my office holiday party and everyone loved the food. Everyone ordered an entre and then a salad to share. Loved everything

We came here based on the Yelp reviews and they did not disapproval. There was a bit of a wait, about 30 minutes for two people. I had the caramel apple french toast and it was amazing!!! If I am in the area, I will definitely be back.
