Off Vine is a restaurant located at the world famous intersection of Sunset and Vine in Hollywood offering California-American cuisine. It is minutes away from famous Hollywood tourist spots (Kodak Theatre, Pantages Theatre, Cinerama Arcdome, Egyptian Thetre, etc). The restaurant is a converted turn-of-the century craftsman-style bungalow.

Dining at Off Vine is like dining at your own home; the decor and the structure is that of a charming bungalow built in the early decade of the 20th century. The decor is a glimpse into the past of “old Hollywood”. The house is once owned by Beryl Wallace, a film actress and show-girl.
For this review I went there for dinner on a Friday night as a guest for an office holiday party. The whole second floor was reserved for the party. The service is quite alright, dinner was served on time and the staff are nice and helpful.
For food I had the Off Vine salad, stuffed pork chop, and a slice chocolate cake. The salad is made up of mixed field greens, red cabbage, a slice of tomato, roasted pecans on top (I counted 3 whole pecans) and crumbled bleu cheese. Dressing is balsamic vinaigrette which is very sharp. I will try one of their soups next time.
The stuffed pork chop is well seasoned, thick slice of pork and stuffed with brie cheese, currants and fresh herbs. The stuffing is tiny, I almost missed it but otherwise the pork chop is very good. The slice chocolate cake is huge, it is enough for 3 people and quite delicious.
The menu includes salads, soups, pasta, poultry, seafood, from the grill, vegan specials, burgers, and sandwiches.
Overall the food is recommended, it did not blow me away but the service is great and it is worth going back again. Off Vine is a quite oasis at the noisy Hollywood & Vine.
