Best Wine Bar that also serves good food in LA?

Hi all! I will be visiting LA soon and I'm looking for the best up-scale Wine Bar that also serves great food. Any recommendation you may have will be helpful!

        agreed good, but far from upscale.
        Palate perhaps.

        1. re: cls

          You are right.
          Now that I'm reading the post more clearly, I see it asks for slightly different things. The title I read asks for "best wine bar w/ good food". The poster then asks for "best upscale wine bar w/ great food".
          I think the the word "upscale" definitely brings it to Palate or AOC.

      2. I'd say AOC hands-down.
        On the casual side, there's BottleRock

        1. One of the, if not "THE", largest wine cellar in L.A. is at Vanentino in Santa Monica with 2,500+ selections. They have the Vin Bar where one can order food at:

          1. Bacaro LA, near USC.
