    Great place to have a glass of wine and cozy dinner with someone special. And at a modest price. The wine and delectable chicken outclassed the steak.

    We were excited to re-visit Corner Wine Bar. We ordered wine flights again which we enjoyed. However, the amount of food provided from one of their main dishes was disappointing. For the the price, the food isn't worth it. We decided we will return again, but only for wine and maybe an appetizer, then move on somewhere else for dinner.

    First time here. Went on a Sunday night. Since moving here 4 months ago we are trying a lot of new restaurants each week. This shoots to the top next to Oakleys which is saying a lot! we both had pasta mine was fresh corn ravioli and my husband's was the special of cheese ravioli in Diablo sauce. both far exceeded our expectations. staff was very friendly and the outside dining was wonderful. Highly, highly recommend. We will be back very soon and often.

    We made reservations for a Thursday night for 7 people outside which included my elderly father in a wheelchair. I asked for a wheelchair-friendly table in the shade due to Daddy's eyesight. Ashley called a few hours before the reservation to say she wasn't sure she could accommodate us in that way due to the narrow space on the patio, but she'd try. She DID it!!! We were so very very pleased with our table and were able to treat Daddy to what was probably his last time ever out to eat. He didn't quite make it through the meal before he had to be taken home, but I so appreciate Ashley's efforts to make that last meal out with family very special.

    Thought we'd stop here for after dinner drinks but we were wrong. We got seated outside since it was a gorgeous night. After being seated for about ten mins the hostess came over to get our drink orders, which seemed odd. So about five minutes go by and our server comes back to get our drink orders again. Another five minutes go by and she gets another tables drink orders and comes back immediately with their drinks. We were rather upset by this since we had been there for 20 minutes with no drinks. We then cancelled our orders and got up to leave. That's when we found out the inside only had two tables. Zero Reason for the slow service. Would not go back.

    We waited awhile to get our initial drinks and then took over 30 minutes for us to even place our order. We were told once that there was a 30 top downstairs and that is why things were taking so long. We were the only ones dining upstairs however so that didn't seem like a good excuse to me. I finally told him I was no longer interested in having my entree brought out- and within a minute I had my meal which I was no longer hungry for. Needless to say, I spent way too much money on a mediocre meal and horrible customer service experience. My first experience was not the best but I thought I would give it a second try. I now know not to return there and will definitely not recommend this to my friends or family.

    Corner Wine Bar is a favorite of ours as a couple or a group. The menu changes seasonally with ample choices for various dietary preferences. The wine list is extensive and we love the "Manager's Bin" special in which you can pay $20 for a blind choice (although they let you give lots of input on varietal preferences) for a bottle of win. The patio is always hopping and you can watch all of BroadRipple walk by while you dine.

    I chose this restaurant because it was supposed to be the most romantic, but that aspect of the restaurant was disappointing.The tables for two were set up so that one of us had to sit at a bench while the other was sitting in a chair.This did not create an environment that was conducive to holding hands or looking into each others eyes.As well, the menu was very limited which seemed like it was aimed towards those on a diet(no baked potatoes).Wine list seemed extensive but overpriced.Garlic bread was really good but the rest of the appetizers were odd(chickpeas?).The restaurant seemed like it was odd(clothes pins on menu, fake flickering candles and tackily vintage, but a fancy menu catered towards only the most cultured diners.

    After waiting 10 minutes for the waiter to come back after giving us menus, it took another 10 minutes for him to come back with our drinks. The plus side is that the food was outstanding. The Sirloin and the Mahi-Mahi were phenomenal. The strawberries with balsamic were a great side to enjoy. The draft beer selection of Indiana beers was great to taste.

Always high quality food at CWB and perfect location in the middle of Broad Ripple. I am a repeat customer and will return in the future. This place is an institution with an additional cool bar in the basement with live music.

    My wife and i visited Friday prior to memorial day and enjoyed an Fabulously seasoned meal but not without a few hiccups. Loved the $20 manager Bin wine selection. Our dinner was delivered My Wife's Salmon had 1/3 charred beyond being able to eat . the 2/3 she ate she enjoyed and Loved the Carrot souffle . My Dinner was first delivered wrong due to a miscommunication with the waitress. My Wild mushroom risotto when delivered had been rushed and needed a few more minutes as the rice was a bit crunchy and Scallops were a bit under done as well. The flavor of the risotto was grand. I have been here many times and this was my worst and only negative experience., I will right it up as a bad day and look forward to my next visit.

    We were looking forward to trying a new place to us in Broad Ripple but overall dissapointed. When we were seated at our table we ordered a 2nd bottle of wine, only to discover they were out of the wine we were drinking. It seemed a little odd to me that a wine bar would be out of wine, but ok, things happen. It was clear to us the server had the entire room so we got prepared for a long evening. I loved the fact that the menu had all kinds of labeling: low fat, vegetarian & gluten free (I have celiac & cannot eat gluten so this was a huge plus!). After ordering a GF meal, guess what I was served? Their "new" accompaniment which was a rye/wheat berry grain that no one seemed to realize was not GF. How do you make that mistake? Not good.

    I forgot how much that I like this restaurant and I plan to go back again soon. Had a "white" flight of wines to start. Very good selection. Ate the incredible shepherds pie. I have had shepherds pie in many places and this was top notch. My friend had a sirloin steak and it was also good. Had the tamales as an appetizer and they were very flavorful. Crème brulee dessert was a good size portion. I recommend this restaurant highly.

    Dined on 5/9/2014
    The food was great and so was the wine, but it took us an hour just to get an appetizer. After someone at the table complained about a weak drink, several people at the table tried it and agreed it was not a standard drink. The waitress and bartender argued it was a standard poor. We are not the type of family to complain, but you could clearly see the drink was watered down. Loved the food and ambiance, but we were just disappointed with the attitude of the server and bartender and the length of time. This place has huge potential- just need to adjust the attitude.

    Always a pleasure to have a lovely evening at the Corner Wine Bar. The small dining room and quiet atmosphere allow for relaxed conversation. Our server was friendly, attentive but unobtrusive - perfect. My mahi-mahi was perfectly cooked, as was my friend's favorite champagne chicken. Consistently fine food and service show why CWB has been around for so many years when others come and go - one of my favorite go-to spots.

    We just love this place. Every time we travel to Indy we make it a point of having dinner here at least once during our stay. Since we travel for business we have a limited budget and it's great to find a place with great service and ambiance that also has a really affordable and yummy meal. With the 3 course price fix and a bottle of wine from their $20 selection a great time is had by all! Where else can you get an app, dinner and dessert for under $20?! Amazing.

    Went for a pre-valentine's day date (to avoid the 'holiday' rush). The waitress was very friendly. She picked out an excellent wine from the manager's special listing. We ordered from the 'penny wise' menu. Three courses for $20. Vegetable skewers were perfectly grilled and great with the accompanying dipping sauce. Tilapia and steak were seasoned just right and delicious. Cheesecake and brownie sundae for dessert. Would have wished that the brownie was served warm instead of being cold. Other than the brownie, this is an great place to wine and dine. We will definitely be visiting again and again.
