Diner Reviews
  • "Save yourself a lot of money by enjoying a bit of Tuscany right here in NC. A sliding glass door enclosed and air conditioned balcony-type dining area overlooking rolling fields of producing grape vines, a manicured lawn and a small pond. Simply beautiful. The food is creatively prepared and presented. Portions are of an appropriate size and exceptionally tasty. Never had a bad meal at this dining establishment. Enjoy the locally produced wine and tour the winery if you have the spare time. Add a few northern Italian style dishes and you would swear that you were dining in a Tuscan villa (minus the Italian language, of course.) NC Piedmont prices-$$-$$$ (Tuscany prices-$)"

  • "We took some out of town guests to lunch at Childress Winery and everyone absolutely loved it. The setting and surroundings are wondeful and our food and service was top of the line. Even though the weather wasn't ideal that day, you could still feel the ambience and imagine how gorgeous it would be on a beautiful sunny day. Everyone was pleasant and cordial. We also did the wine tasting and ended up joining the Childress Winery Fast Track Wine Club. I would highly recommend this place and plan to go back often."

  • "The glass-enclosed dining area at the Bistro gives expansive views of the vineyards. The food is excellent, interesting combinations, and good selections. The meal was a little slow in arriving, but not a major problem. Plenty of good wine choices, and a pleasant and helpful staff are ready to assist."

  • "My dad wanted to go to celebrate his birthday where he has been several times. The menu had changed a lot and wasn't what he was used to. Our server did the best that she could but did not seem to be knowledgable in the wine or of the menu. Overall, it wasn't a bad experience but we had higher expectations."

  • "Food and service were very good. Only negative was the noise. It was so loud that I could not hear my table mate and I had to shout for her to hear me. That should be corrected as it takes away from a pleasant dining experience. By the way this survey is one of the dumbest I have seen yet"

  • "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!"

  • "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 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."
