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.

If you think that you know all about bruschetta, be prepared to learn. Unique bruschetta combinations...each delicious.

Have come to enjoy this casual restaurant. The brucetta options are all delicious! Have only tried a few of the other items on the menu, but they have all been good. We like to take advantage of the 1/2 of wine on Friday afternoons. No rushing you here, relax and enjoy your time with a great atmosphere and delicious food.

Great place to try a variety of wines. The glass size options enable you to try a nice variety of wines -- many of them ones that you probably wouldn't have tried before because they're reasonably priced, and you're not required to buy a bottle or even a carafe - they have a slightly smaller size than the normal wine...

Good atmosphere. Outdoor seating covered in the back with heaters. Great place to meet colleagues or a friend. Live jazz on weekends.

I've been going to B Street and Vine for years. Food is always good and consistent. I always forget how yummy it is when I haven't been for awhile. The bruschetta is so good with a lot of choices to share with friends. The Panini's and salads are good as well. Great wine selection and happy hour $5 glasses of... More
