The concept is great. The wine and food are fun and interesting. But the service is just awful, based on one visit at lunch on Saturday. My server couldn't talk about the wine choices (which are quite good). He just wanted to take my order and rush off. I had to wait 15 minutes when I ordered a second wine.... More

Been here a dozen times and never been disappointed. The Bruschetta choices are all good, my personal fav is the Gorgonzola and honey. Always start wit a round of Bruschetta's and then split a panini because that is plenty of food for 2. The wine choices are excellent and they do a nice pour.

My trip to B Street and Vine came out of the need to surprise a friend (who hates both birthdays AND surprises). Another friend made reservations for 8pm that seemed unnecessary when we arrived at 7:50ish and were shown to a table of choosing,( we needed to accommodate an infant), showing the FOH staff did a great job of making...

The menu is fine. It has a light menu. There' music on Thursdays and if you go with friends it's a great, fun and satisfying night out. It seems packed most times. Good for lunch, but you miss out on the fun atmosphere and good music!

We had a pleasant light meal with friends at this neighborhood eatery. Our friends live in San Mateo and recommended we eat here. We had bruschetta and salad for our meal and they accommodated my wife's preference for gluten free bread. Everything was reasonably priced and the food was tasty. A local "one person band" topped off the evening playing... More

I've been there with friends a couple of times. I love getting a bruschetta plate to split. Some of their toppings are really amazing. Service is usually quick and friendly. Wait times are short

Dinner with friends before a movie. I've wanted to try B St. very unimpressed. Ordered plate of mixed bruschetta. Very good and plenty for two people to share. Had the smoke salmon, white bean with sun-dried tomato, Olive tapenade and Brie with apples. Highly recommend the brie with apples and smoke salmon bruschetta. Wine prices are good, about $30 a...

Eating spots can be divided into two different kinds of places. The first ones are running with passion of their owners, the second ones are oriented to maximize the profits. Unfortunately, B Street & Vine I can classify as the place with no love to food. During my visit the owners were standing all the time close to the cash... More

It is not always easy to accommodate a group of 12, but they had it down. Our entire experience there was a good one (not easy to please 12 people all at once) and the food was delicious, wines yummy and fairly priced.
