I went for dinner on Friday
I went for dinner on Friday evening with my wife and parents and a couple friends. We had a great evening. It was fun being able to pick our own win bottles from the huge selection. And the food was great!

Ambiance was great. Jazz
Ambiance was great. Jazz playing, just enough "noise," and great service. Menu is not extensive, but what they offer is delicious. The wine flights--that change often--are a great way to try new wines. Went mid-week; not sure what the weekends are like but will definitely return.

A new favorite
This was my first experience at the wine bar and I really enjoyed it. Very comfortable and relaxed. I liked being able to browse wines and just pick what i wanted from the shelves they have a really great selection that inclded my favorite (cakebread cellars cab - delicious!). the food was good...had salad and a pasta and both were really well done. I noticed a lot of other patrons had the flatbread - and they looked amazing. Our server, Jessica, was delightful and helpful. Looking forward to returning.

I have been to the Wine Bistro in Upper Arlington on many occasions, and I am never disappointed. Their food is delicious and the offer very interesting combinations. The past visit I had 1/2 strawberry and pistachio salad with goat cheese, and 1/2 prosciutto and fig flatbread. I would recommend either to anything and I will definitely have them again. Their wine list is thorough without being overwhelming, and the staff is very knowledgeable when choosing a beverage to go with your meal. Service is timely without feeling rushed, and the atmosphere is very inviting.

I've always had a good time here. The hummus appetizer is delicious! The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Perfect spot close to home...
Great find for dinner when I was back home visiting family. My Mom and I really enjoyed our dining experience at Wine Bistro. The ambiance is perfect...we love the décor and feel of the restaurant. It was busy and had a nice vibe on a Friday evening. We enjoyed our tapas and the wine recommended by our server was amazing! I will definitely return to this spot again!

Go first for the wine
I ordered a Rose wine flight, on a warm spring night. My husband I were very happy with the wine, 3 cheese plate, warm olives and carb cake (my #1 choice!). We had leftovers of the olives, the serving was large enough to share with 3-5 people. We also ordered entrees: the Vineyard Chicken Salad and the Salmon Arugula Citrus Salad. We both thought the salads were 'very okay'. We thought that maybe the flavorful olives, cheese, crabcakes and wine made the following salads less exciting...or maybe they were just 'okay'. Next time, I think we will either order the salads first, or just stick to shareable dishes.

Excellent food, mediocre service
The food and wine were excellent. The server, however, was very disengaged, making us feel like we caused imposition on his plans for the evening.

Always love this place. Great wine and great food. What else could you ask for?

We sat on the patio, very nice setting but the car noise was loud. Hopefully it won't be as bad once Lane Ave is paved.
Tall bushes along the pato might help the noise.too!

Can't believe it took us so long
to try this place! We chose the Wine Bistro for our anniversary. Our waitress was knowledgeable and helpful in choosing a bottle of wine from the extensive shelves. Fondue appetizer was delicious and our food was amazing. Just the right amount of seasoning, prepared perfectly, and served piping hot. We sat outside and did not really think the road noise was very noticeable. This place has a very European feel to it and we will definitely be going back!

Wine Bistro delivers!
What a great place for a nice meal and great wine! The service is friendly and not intrusive, the salads are wonderful and the food excellent. Our only complaint is that the spaghetti that came with meatballs was actually kind of cold and not warm or hot as one would have expected. Aside from that, the chicken was great and the recommended wine - which we sought out help on - was excellent!

I've been to the Wine Bistro several times with girlfriends and it was time to take my husband. As usual I started with the fondue trio which is to die for. They have an amazing wine selection and it's priced so competitively. I got the roast chicken which was delish and he got the pepperoni flatbread which he enjoyed.

Great Food Not So Great Service
Food was great but, the service left a lot to be desired. It was Restaurant Week so I understand that they may have been busier than usual. It took at least 5 minutes for a server to acknowledge us. Then our main course came out before our appetizer, which was less than about 5 minutes for ordering, which makes me wonder if they were pre-making dishes in anticipation of Restaurant Week. Once they noticed the mistake, they then took away the main dishes and brought our appetizers, then brought back the main dishes after we had finished the appetizer. Now, I am not sure if we received the original dishes or if new ones were prepared. Again, the food was excellent and I would go again with hopes that this was a one time bad service experience.

The Wine Bistro is a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends or have a romantic dinner. The food is varied and delicious. I highly recommend the braised veal meatball flatbread. The selection of wine can be overwhelming if you're not a regular wine drinker, but the servers are happy to make recommendations and help you find something to go with your dinner and your taste. A friend and I went here before a concert and got out with plenty of time to spare, but did not feel rushed. I'm sure I'll be back here again.

Great food. Great wine.
Great food and great wine at The Wine Bistro. What more can you ask for? Try the fondue trio or the filet and blue flatbread. They're both excellent.

First Visit-Very Good
We loved the menu. The wines were great. The atmosphere was fun. Our server did his best to take care of our table, but the restaurant was extremely busy at that time.

Great place for a team lunch
My team from work went here and had a wonderful experience. The food was great and the service was excellent. Environment was perfect for having a conversation (perfect table set up). I will be back for sure!

The Wonderful Wine Bistro!
We had a party of 8 and had a great time. We shared a couple appetizers, everyone enjoyed their dinner and our service was excellent. This is our favorite place to meet!

Nice date night place
Very good food and service. Beautiful ambiance, but the overhead lighting and decorative items need a good dusting

Awesome As Always
The Wine Bistro is awesome. Great food, great service, and a great wine list!!!! Amanda and Grant are fantastic servers.

This was my 4th time at the Wine Bistro in UA. I live in Dublin but it is only a 20 min. drive and well worth it.
I typically order the bruschetta (mushroom) and some type of flat bread.
The bruschetta is so good, the best I have ever had! The flavors meld together just perfectly. The flatbread is also good (mostly I have tried the chicken and basil) and I like the crispy texture of the crust.
I will defintely go back to this restaurant!

Girls night out
This is the second time in two weeks I have met a group of girlfriends at the wine bistro. Last week we went to the worthington location and although the food and wine was terrific the service and atmosphere was lacking. Our waitress was flaky and we felt like they were kicking us out at 9:45. At the UA location the atmosphere was lively and fun as soon as we walked in. The waiter was excited about his job and helped us to have an even more enjoyable experience. The food and wine was still great at the UA location.

Service and food were excellent
Service and food were excellent and we were able to sample wines that we wouldn't be able to try otherwise. We sat at a traditional table and was nice to see available couch/casual areas for dining/mixing. Loved the lighting and how the wines encircled the restaurant - was attractive setting. Also, priced right and a very good overall experience.

The cheese board was very good, but we missed the nuts that came with it in the past. Wine was great. It was a great way for my wife and I to celebrate Sweetest Day.

I loved our waitress, who recommended a terrific wine that was extremely afforable and tasty. My only criticism would be that my dining mate is on a gluton-free diet and can't eat dairy. She ordered the shortribs and the risotto had cheese in it... they didn't have an alternative - surprisingly no potatoes. She then order a salad instead and it took forever for it to arrive, but the waitress then took it off the bill. I adore the atmosphere and would recommend it (and have) to my friends.
