Went there on a Saturday night recently with another couple and while I used to be a big fan of Vinotecca, I can't say that I was that impressed on this visit. We had a drink at the bar and were seated about an hour later at a table not built for four people. We ordered another round of drinks and shared the calamari, which was overly breaded and chewy. For dinner, I ordered the chicken tortelini -- it was saucy and spicy, perfect for me. But my husband's prime rib dinner (it was one of the specials that night) was cold and lacked flavor. So cold he could barely eat it and our waitress was no where to be found. By the time she checked on us, he was half-way through his dinner and didn't want to say anything. We shared dessert -- the waffle with icecream -- and it was good. Big enough so each of us could have a couple bites. Overall, I wish the service had been better, appetizer a little more tasty and everyone's food to be warm. But the wine was good and the atmosphere was fun. I'll go back but will stick to the wine and cheese and not the entrees.

my organization just had our annual spring event a few weeks ago in the upstairs bar/restaurant area. I was "working" that night but still go to experience the open beer/wine bar as well as sample some of the hors d'oeuvres and thought that everything was really excellent. I'd like to go back sometime for a show/happy hour.

Very cool atmosphere with dark lighting and velvet walls. Come here for Monday 2 for 1 margaritas and tasty appetizers [empanadas and ceviche]. On Fridays & Saturdays, there is a weird 2-hour rule for tables. Unpretentious, but hip off-Hollywood/Sunset strip feel.
