I wasn't quite sure how to rate this experience. My meal was excellent, but my wife's was average at best. So I averaged the two to come up with very good, and gave a little partial credit for the nice location.
I had the cedar plank salmon, and it was as good as I've had anywhere--tasty, tender, nicely seasoned and cooked. The rice pilaf and sauteed snow pea pods were very good complements. This was the big hit.
My wife had the peas and bow tie dish, which was bow tie pasta with peas, chunks of chicken, and Alfredo sauce. The chicken was rubbery and the Alfredo sauce was very garlicky and not at all creamy. This was the bad miss.
If you are tired of cookie cutter chain restaurants and are looking for a one of a kind place, you may like the Oak & Vine. Many menu items are familiar ingredients prepared in the O&V's special way. If your preferences lean to the common ways of preparation, you might not be comfortable with some of them.
TIP FOR WOMEN: Ask for directions to the ladies rest room when you enter, and consider using it before your meal. It is a long way from the main dining room, and you get there through a less than intuitive route. My wife also noted that aside from the distance, it is a one-holer, suggesting a waiting line if the restaurant is busy. (Oddly, in contrast, the men's room is accessible right from the main dining room, and can accommodate multiple users.)
