Too noisy for me, but a very popular place

Very popular, sometimes has jazz. Extremely loud, could not have a conversation. Actually left last time I was there because of the noise. Does not really accommodate Gluten Free diets, but salads are huge and pretty good. My friends like the food.

Delicous bruschetta - we had a sampler and split a salad - more than enough food. Another time, split a bruschetta plate and a panini - delicious again. Wish I could have had a glass of wine, but had to get back to work! The wine list looks wonderful.

All of their menu items are delicious. Salads are fresh, the bruschetta is AMAZING, and the sangria is yummy. Skip getting just a glass and get a carafe of red sangria. Live jazz on certain nights make for an upbeat atmosphere. It's a great little place for a date, meeting up with friends, or a lunch hour meal.

We love wine bars and so were looking forward to this place. First off, all the staff came off as sullen and unhappy; there was zero friendliness. We ordered bruschetta as this was supposed to be the speciality but they were unimaginative, bland and card-board like. When the waiter served the plate, he tipped it, dropping a piece on the...

A very good restaurant serving a nice variety of panini sandwiches with a good selection of wines. However, it is worth going just to order the bruschetta. For $12 you can select four different types that can easily satisfy a hungry person for lunch or for a couple to share with their wine. The options for bruschetta are varied to... More

My husband's nephew's girlfriend told me that they recently dined here, and they drive all the way from San Jose! However, she notices all the Yelp recommendations for restaurants in San Mateo. Shameful that as a resident, I hadn't yet ever eaten at B Street and Vine. But then again I'm married to a man who hates going to restaurants... More

We love to get their sampling of Bruschettas. My personal favorite is the honey and blue cheese. Their fig and ricotta and apple and brie are delicious as well!

I enjoy this place for a ladies night out, datenight or anything in between. I had one bad experience here where the waiter was strange but for the most part they're consistent. The bruschettas are delicious and they have a wide selection.

Met a chick here on a date once and I didn't like her, so we didn't naked afterwards. You drink wine here and have small plates and do the suburban thing.
