OC Weekly's Description

This tiny eatery impresses with an affordable small-plates menu, breakfast-through-dinner hours and a wine list that belies its claustrophobic dining room. Not all the dishes are prepared with organic produce, but that's fine: The true green goods are in a small refrigerated case, where chef Mark McDonald stocks artisan cheeses, meats, olives and spreads, mostly from Spain.

    I have been for Brunch & Dinner several times over the past year. There are few restaurants in OC that compare to the variety/quality that Old Vine serves. There is a wait on the weekends for brunch, but totally worth it! Dinner offers tasting menus that include good wine.
