Great addition to the hood
LOVE having a great little place to walk to in the hood. Delicious small plates and great deals during happy hours. Always packed...which is a good sign.

We had a great cocktail hr that turned into dinner because the wine, service, appetizer menu and regular dinner menu looked so good! It is so beautiful. great ambiance. I can't believe I am in columbus because it is so cute ,trendy and eclectic! Great surroundings. can't wait til they get the patio done.
One problem, I wish the wait staff looked more uniform. I didn't know who my waiter was!!! The wait staff overall could use a bit of training in serving and making the customer feel at home. Look me in the eye!!! a few more tatoos than I like on a few of the servers............not mine, I am glad to say

Mother's Day at the Bistro
This was a great place to bring my wife for mother's day. Great food and Service and good choices for older kids 12+ and adults. Really nice wine selection and our waiter was very helpful when it came to picking out the right wine. Always book a table in advance because they seem to be crowded most of the time. Nice addition to Clintonville.

Great Mothers Day Dinner
For a Mothers Day treat, we dined at the WB and had a very nice dinner. My wife ordered the Diamonds in the Rough, a flight if 3 red wines, which she vey much enjoyed; we bought a bottle one one selection to take home. That's one one the innovative aspects if the WB. Another is the large selection of global wines on the floor to which you can choose and have corked at your table. The quality of the food was excellent as well. The crab cakes impressed, braised shirt ribs mouth-watering, and the lobster and shrimp fettuccine was excellent (a tad bit too oily but favors very satisfying and delightful). Highly recommended. The bistro gets quite busy, so reservations recommended.

First time at the Wine Bistro. Excellent food/wine and a wonderful waiter, Craig. The four of us had a great dinning experience. Can't wait to go back when the weather is nicer and sit on the patio. Highly recommend!

We will definitely be back - a great, relaxing way to spend an evening.

What a Treat!
Everything about our visit to the Clintonville Wine Bistro was great. I think we got the best server in the entire place, and they were ALL good! We so enjoyed the retro touches many of them had added to their outfits. We tried several appetizers and three bottles of wine. The food was tasty, the wine selection awesome, and you just can't beat the ambience. Prices were reasonable, which always helps when you want to reward an outstanding server like Johnny. We will be back!

A real gem in Clintonville
While this restaurant is not a one of a kind, it is defineitely a unique place! Not only are the wine choices plentiful, the food is amazing! Everything we ordered was great! It was great to go as a group of adults and have a very nice dinner and be able to talk, not yell over the background noise.
We had a fabulous time!

Food was really good all around
7 pm reservation, VERY loud, but by 7:30, much quieter. Food was quite delicious, not a clunker on the table. Had antipasto, cheese plate, flatbreads, soup, panini, chicken, salads, everything was tasty. One soup was barely warm, but probably only complaint of the night other than the noise level upon arrival. Three different wine flights and only one glass out of nine that was just ok, others were all good. Like that the flight wines were reasonable if you decided to purchase a bottle. Our group had a fun night, been to all 3 Wine Bistros in town and they are consistent across locations. Same menu, same good service, similar styles, good wine options. You can't go wrong with any of them.

Wonderful Find, stay inside
This restaurant's food was fantastic. Would go again. We sat on the patio as it was a wonderful evening. Location on High street was a bit noisy particularly with the 3 times the squads and fire departments raced up the street. Would have liked to see a better wine "flight" opportunity. Food was second to none!

Awesome After Work Spot
We recently went with a group from work and had a fabulous time. The happy hour appetizer menu along with drink specials (especially the Monday waived corking fee!) left us all craving to come back next week! The food was great and wine selection out of this world. The staff seemed to have a hard time keeping up but we went during an awkward time switching shifts. Regardless of timeliness the servers were pleasant and very helpful. Overall a great experience!

My sister and I took my dad to The Wine Bistro for Father's Day. We had fantastic service, it was quiet, and the food was delicious. Their chicken salad is good and they even have gluten free crackers for the hummus. I will definitely be going back. :)

Great food, odd portions
Everything we had was delicious and I'd happily go there again soon. But portion sizes were unusual- my boyfriend and I had the same salad except he got the regular size and I got the small but they seemed almost the same size; the Brie appetizer was tiny and only enough for each person in the party of four to have one taste. It was delicious, just ask the server about portion sizes do you don't end up with too much or too little of what you want.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was our first visit and we had a wonderful time we will be back
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, really enjoyed the wine. Love the outdoor seating.

I'm in Love
I don't eat out often, but when I do I want to feel like it's a special event. I've been to this Wine Bistro three times now and loved every experience. Recently I booked a small (five) birthday party for a friend. Everyone was delighted with the ambience, the food, the menu selections, the prices, and the outstanding service. We all plan to come back - often and soon.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, great prices
Absolutely delicious and very reasonable prices!! I am so happy to have a great restaurant in Clintonville. Everything we had was delicious - baked brie appetizer, short ribs with mushroom risotto and the veal meatball. I would recommend all of these items and there was so much more on the menu that I want to try. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent food - an interesting
Excellent food - an interesting menu of old standbys with slightly new twists. Well prepared and very flavorful without being over powering. A great ambiance - we really loved the wine cellar rustic atmosphere. A wonderful place that we can't wait to revisit.... only wish they had one in our city as we were visiting OSU,.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food; expensive
The food and service were both very good. The meatball appetizer and house salad were highlights - both were delicious. We went on a Friday night and the restaurant was busy but not packed. We tried four wines from the wines by the glass menu, and two were terrific and two were slightly disappointing. Food and drinks are slightly on the expensive side (seemed like East Coast pricing). Overall, we enjoyed the experience.

Nice place to sit and relax
Nice place to sit and relax and enjoy good food and wine. They do have a small list of craft beers if wine isn't your thing.

Being on a Front Porch!
I invited some friends to join me for dinner at The Wine Bistro. I live nearby but they live across town. It was a great evening where we could dine outdoors. We all enjoyed the wine, food, and environment. And, there was not demand for our table so we just visited, enjoying the visit like being on the front porch. Welcome to Clintonville!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would reccomend this restaurant to any food and wine lover. I am not a big wine fan, more like a serious foodie. The server was able to answer many questions and stear me to the right wine for me. The food was amazing, I didn't realize there was a chef in town doing things the way they do. Modern menu with amazing crisp tastes. I am only glad it was my birthday and someone else was paying, it was not cheap! Save up a little and go enjoy my new favorite restaurant.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A welcome addition in Clintonville
I have been to this location twice and both times I would say that the servers efforts to accommodate us helped make the experience enjoyable. Tastes of wine were offered, and dishes were served exactly as patiently described. On one visit I received the wrong check but this was taken care of promptly. The outdoor seating area is pleasant.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful, varied meal with old friends we hadn't seen in quite a while. Thank you for such a lovely evening. The Service and Food were both great !.

What a Gem
What a Gem this restuarant turned out to be. First time visit and was blown away. GREAT FOOD, Wonderful Wine Selections at reasonable prices. My only concern is when the word gets out I won't be able to get in.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eclectic, pleasant dining spot.
This place is a Clintonville standout. Good location, solid by-the-glass wine list, and a menu which should satisfy any appetite. Waiting staff seemed very pleasant, but not pretentious. Slightly different vibe than their upper Arlington or their Worthington locations. ( In a good way) The only thing that will keep me from going back is if they build a location in New Albany........thumbs up.

What a relaxing lunch venue. Thanks for the non intrusive manner .
It's refreshing to have a knowledgable waiter who has the confidence to field a number of questions.

Reasonably priced, well-prepared food with a gourmet touch. Scott is a lovely server, nice sense of humor, attentive. Te outdoor setting is especially nice!

Great Addition to the Neighborhood
Good food, good wine, great service. get there before 6pm for Happy Hour prices.

Food was outstanding, but
Food was outstanding, but it took us one hour to receive our salads and then another hour to receive our entrees.
That timing was a little irritating. Still the wait staff was very friendly and helpful; and the management comp-ed part of
our check to make up for the delays. We dined on a Friday night. Will give it another chance.

What A Gem
We tried the Wine Bistro in Clintonville after a Bucks game. We were running late for our 7:30 reservations, so we called and were told that they would "hold" our reservations. We were treated like old friends when we arrived and the wine and food that followed were outstanding. We have not tried the other locations, but this one is great.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most Amazing Experience
We had a great dinner, the wine was fantastic and moderately priced. It felt like someone's home it was so warm and inviting. Large overstuffed chairs, open tables for groups and small romantic tables hidden here and there around the room.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even Better the Second Time
Stopped for a second visit before a recent OSU football game. We were treated like old friends and really enjoyed both the food and the wine. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is friendly and helpful. This place is quickly becoming one of our favorites.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great beer too
Wine Bistro did a great job setting a comfortable atmosphere. Great place for any mood - a quick drink, a few appetizers, a full meal, fun with friends. And they not only have a hug wine selection, but some great craft beers as well.

Friday Night with a friend
This is a good meet up space for friends. It is not large, but the atmosphere is conducive to chatter. I totally recommend the brie appetizer. This little gem was amazing. My friend and I split a flat bread (they are large) and had a couple of drinks. The noise level was good for chatter, but not overwhelming.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome, happening place!
Really enjoyed ourselves! Celebrating Niece's first job! Great Food, great service, great value for our evening.
Place was packed but after we sat down, we got served quickly and expertly! Everything delish!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our party of 8 enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner before heading to our children's high school play. Our server, Joe, was knowledgeable and attentive. It is refreshing to be served by someone who enjoys their job! Food was delicious. Wine was great. We will definitely return to this restaurant.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for browsing!
We had an early reservation at the Wine Bistro, hoping to avoid the crowds (and noise) attendant on a later arrival. Turned out there was already a large and boisterous gathering at the bar, and the noise-level only increased as the evening wore on. This is an excellent opportunity to "browse" through several shared small plates, and the fall menu provided some new innovations. The shrimp with pineapple was a tasty starter. Chilly weather made the 3 cheese fondues a no-brainer (we'd enjoyed them on an earlier visit). And the filet and bleu flatbread was a real winner. Hard to pass up the port-simmered cherries (on ice cream) and the chocolate pot au crème (like eating fudge with a spoon!) for dessert.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time experience a winner
The six of us had a fun and enjoyable evening. We sat at one of the high top tables that had surprisingly comfortable chairs. We were glad we had made reservations since the place was packed. Thankfully we were immediately seated when we arrived at 6:30. Excellent service and wine selection plus delicious food. Our waiter was most helpful with menu and wine selections. Our group had salads, flatbread pizza, spaghetti, and wine of course. We'll be back.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful meal, great service and great advice about different wines. The restaurant was very quiet and not many customers so we got top notch service! Have been here before and will return soon.
