  • "I had the chicken salad which was delicious. Hubby had a beef sandwich and friends ate salad and pimento cheese burger. We will definitely try this place again. It would be nice if it was open longer hours for those who would like to do tours and tastings before eating."

  • "I guess the folks at The Bistro at Childress Vineyards don't read the special requests on an Open Table reservation. We mentioned that we were married at Childress Vineyards, and we were returning for lunch on our anniversary of being married there. NOT A SINGLE PERSON recognized us for being there on our anniversary. NO WORD was ever said about why we were there. THEN......we even filled out a comment card, stating the same....and STILL not a word. VERY disappointed. (even made reservations at another restaurant for dinner, and was greeted with a Happy Anniversary from the restaurant hostess, and then from our server....and even treated us to a complementary dessert.........excellent customer service from THAT restaurant"

  • "Beautiful setting--but--had a reservation for party of 6 for 12:30pm on Tuesday. Seated on time, pleasant hostess and waitress--BUT, ordered our lunch by 12:45--our lunch was not served until 1:30pm---we were to have a relaxed lunch but by the time the food arrived we had to rush. Too nice to be so slow."

  • "My husband and I decided to take a day trip to visit Childress Vineyards and have a "date day". Your winery lends the most relaxing, beautiful ambiance and couple that with a welcoming and friendly staff, it made for the perfect day. We enjoyed a quick tasting, then we took a bottle of our favorite from the tasting and enjoyed it out on your private gazebo in the comfortable chairs and enjoyed the beautiful weather and quiet (something you don't get much of when you have small children at home). We finished off the day with a tour of the winery and lunch in the Bistro. It was perfect and you can bet we will be back!"

  • "It was a delight to eat in the Bistro. The server was delightful. The only issue is the time in getting food after ordering. Felt this could have been better. The food when it did arrive was wonderful and ample."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Food was great, plenty and delicious. Our waitress was not as attententive, forgot our sides, had to come back, put us late for the wine tour at 3pm. We had 1:30 pm reservations, did not get served until 2:20pm. So we had to rush to make the tour. This was not my first time at the Bistro, based on our passed experience, I brought guests again. I think you have a great product, your production needs to be more timely."

  • "We felt as though we'd been transported to California wine country, and we enjoyed conversation and great food in a lovely setting. The server didn't seem to mind that we lingered a while. The lobster BLTs were exquisite."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the experience at the Childress Vineyard. Lunch in the Bistro was not only good food, it was a great view of a vineyard as well. The staff throughout the Vineyard was pleasant, helpful, and ready to help in anyway. And there is the wine, which was a find. We had not had the pleasure of Childress wines until our visit and now we are big fans. Walked away with 6 bottles and will look for it in local stores or order online! The ambiance of the Vineyard would be great for a party, corporate event, or any celebration."

The Bistro is a wonderful dining experience and my Husband and I feel it is a place we will frequent often. Looking forward to bringing our friends to enjoy as well."

  • "My sister and I took our dad and stepmother there while they were here visiting. I have been here before just for the tour not to eat at the Bistro so though it would be a good treat for the family. It was really good! We all loved our dishes....We all had a good time."

  • "Overall a decent experience and we would return but make sure we did not have the same waiter, Brandon. We had to ask him to bring a bottle of wine and some glasses twice and it seemed apparent he had forgotten. When I ordered one of the hamburgers off the menu he replied with the comment "that's going to take a while" and it did! Who says that? Besides that he took another tables order before turning ours in (if he knew it was going to take a while one would think he'd do what ever he could to expedite things.) He did bring us some complimentary bread but only after we told him we were starving and would really like our food. The food & wine was very good and a good value."

  • "Bistro was a last minute lunch date with my husband had a great time and food was outstanding, my husband had a pork plate and though I don't really like pork found myself eating out of his plate."

  • "Food as very good. there were several items on the menu I wanted to try. I settled on the spring vegetable pizza. It had artichokes, asparagus, sun-dried tomatos & a spinach pesto sauce. My husband chose the shrimp alfredo in a spicy red sauce. We shared the blueberry cobbler. We were seated on the enclosed patio overlooking the vineyard & pond. Mr Childress came into the dining area momentarily."

  • "My husband took me to Childress for my 60th birthday. We were greeted very cordially when we approached the hostess. We were given a lovely table with a view of the pond. The menu seemed very appetizing, but I'm afraid I had to order the chicken salad (it is the best)! My husband ordered the roast beef sandwich and loved it. He couldn't begin to finish it and had to bring it home. It truly is a wonderful dining experience."

  • "The place has a unique atmosfere close to The Piedmont Triad. Spring and Summer time it is a wonderful place to spend the day."

  • "I was not aware we would not be able to order off the menu. Then we were sat in the large room with no windows. When I asked why we weren't sitting in the Bistro I was told " those people requested it". I was not aware I needed to request it. Food was not good and to top things off the Buffett was WAY over priced!"

  • "The only thing I didn't like was the Bistro was way too loud. Not sure how they can fix this (maybe improve the ceiling to help dampen the noise of many voices?)...the food was really good...the staff is really nice!"

  • "Our wait person seemed impatient as we were chatting and catching up after a one year of not seeing each other. She told us there is a two hour time limit on a table! Immediately soured the get together. We're picking other rendevous restaurants midway between Raleigh and Charlotte. "
