A word from The Wine Bistro - Worthington
Debra Sturm, GM
The Wine Bistro, with three Columbus, Ohio locations in Upper Arlington, Clintonville and Worthington, offers an exciting array of well-curated wines and a list of select craft beers. The menu features light and filling appetizers & small plates, soups, salads, flatbreads and entrees offered every day of the week for lunch and dinner. We open at 11:00 AM Mon-Sat and at Noon on Sunday.
Choose a table for two, a relaxed seat in the soft seating area, gather a group at one of the communal tables or in the private tasting room. Shop for wine priced at near state minimum or pay a small corkage fee (waived on Mondays & Tuesdays) to enjoy your bottle in-house.
We look forward to exploring great wine and food with you soon...

Diner Reviews
  • "The wine was very good. Great wine selection. Loved the atmosphere. The server was top-notch. Food was so-so and the desserts were disappointing but I would be willing to try other dishes. Sticker shock when I saw the bill. Order wine by the bottle and forgo the samplers."

  • "This is my go to place for entertaining out of town friends. Its location, food and service is so good. The hummas platter is so good. (I could eat the Olive hummus for days) The food is amazing, and its really good for you! The wine selection is awesome. The outside patio is adorable for spring/summer/fall. I cannot wait to go again!"

  • "Two out of five visits to your bistro we have had terrible service and you have been out of some gluten free option.Will go elsewhere. Too inconsistent with food and service. You were out of gluten free crackers and steak all in one sitting?"

  • "This was a great restaurant to have a girls night out. The server was very nice and provided great customer service. We enjoyed some appetizers and the flights of wine. The food and wine was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and location to my friends and family."

  • "Very nice atmosphere, the decor was a tad "country" but really enjoyed the dim lighting. Seems like it's more suited to 40+ crowd. Food was excellent, and more unique than something you would get at a big chain. Service was OK, but they were really busy and we still got a table immediately so I can't complain."

  • "First visit to this small local chain. Waited at least 45 minutes past our reservation time of 7:45 p.m. due to table squatters. Management (Deb) had some level of concern as time moved on. Ended up with a decent table between the bar and the kitchen. Our group had two bottles of wine that were suggested and sampled before they were brought to the table. Really enjoyed the warm olive appetizer and the gluten free fondue. The popcorn seemed ok as well. The entrees were just ok - really nothing remarkable. We had crab cakes, chicken marsala, a flat bread, shortribs and a grilled chicken salad. The best of the bunch was probably the flatbread. Bottom line is that we'll go again -for the wine and some appetizers."

  • "For the location they've don't a great job at making your feel like you're not in a strip bar. I think Columbus lacks a cool sense of itself, but the Wine Bistro makes you think you're in another city; which is a good thing. Cool decor, good lighting, makes me want to order an entire bottle of wine and drink it until it's gone. I dig the flat bread (aka: Hipster name for pizza) and the winery salad."

  • "My husband and I had a great time. The restaurant must have expanded to the building next door because they had separate dinning space with it's own entrance, and during our entire visit we were the only ones seated in that area so it was like we had the whole place to ourselves. It was romantic and quiet and we really enjoyed ourselves."

  • "Excellent food and wine. Service a little slow. Had to pay corkage fee for a bottle of wine we bought from them."

  • "This was the first time at this location although we've been to the one in Upper Arlington and Clintonville . The servers at the other 2 locations are more knowledgeable and helpful with wine selection than here. I had the salmon salad which was delicious . The mushroom flatbread is super cheesy. The restaurant was packed so I think our waitress was super busy because she didn't check on us at all after our meals came. Would recommend the Wine Bistro but not this specific location ."

  • "On my reservation, I requested a "preferred table". It was my 82 year old mother's birthday. We were shown to a high top with wooden barstools with no backs. I refused the table, and after much discussion she gave us an open table that was for a 7:15 reservation. Ours was at 7:00. The hostess said they do not get info from online requests!! Really?"

  • "We will definitely be coming back. The atmosphere was very cozy and romantic. I was super impressed with the wine selection and the Cabernet I had was perfect. The food was surprisingly excellent (since there are 3 in the area, I wasn't sure if this place was like a local "chain" or not, which had me skeptical at first). I had the short ribs & risotto, and the triple chocolate pots de creme, and both were absolutely amazing."

  • "I had some high hopes for my meal here. It was date night with the boyfriend, and after a difficult week, I was really looking forward to a nice evening. I should mention that it was restaurant week and very busy, which may account for some of the issues we encountered during our dinner. The good: -Promptly seated -Friendly waiter -Salad, short ribs, and bread pudding were good The bad: -Waited OVER and hour for our first courses (a salad and a meatball). No comped drinks offered for our wait, not even bread brought to the table. -Meatball was burnt -Fusilli dish had a burnt garlic taste -Tables were bunched together a little closely, so wait staff nearly hit our table with their butts on occasion"

  • "Went to catch up with a girlfriend during Restaurant Week. Our server, Katie, was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable of the extensive wine list and was very personable. She entertained us with funny stories, made several wine recommendations, offered us tastings, and also made wonderful recommendations for the dinner selections. I ordered the fusilli with prosciutto while my girlfriend had the short ribs. Both were wonderful! The veal meatball was voted the best appetizer and I agree!!! I even asked to try a different desert as I didnt care for what I ordered and they were happy to accomodate. Another employee came over to talk to us. He was lovely as well!!!! Great food, wine, ambience and best of all TOP NOTCH SERVICE!"

  • "We had an anniversary gathering for my mother and father in-laws 52nd Wedding Anniversary. We were placed in the small room to the back of the restaurant with 10 people. It is a perfect venue, wonderful ambiance, great wine selection, and excellent tapas type food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Deb the manager was so friendly and helpful and the staff exceptional."

  • "Our seating was not great for one reason, chairs to low table to high. It was a Friday so noise level was loud. Lunch is a better choice for me."

  • "Enjoyed a fun evening and tried some amazing wine on a Monday evening in December. The Fig & Proscutto Flat Bread is amazing. The atmosphere and decor is fantastic for a night out with friends."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "Loved the wine list. The fondue trio was fun to share with a group of 4. The host brought over a bowl of complimentary bowl of Tuscan Popcorn. The taste was great, but it was grossly over-buttered. The entrees and salads we ordered were good (winery salad, pesto chicken flatbread), but not necessarily noteworthy. Fun atmosphere and good wine. The service was good, however our waitress was overattentive. We were there for a leisurely visit and she repeatedly tried to clear our food before we were ready. She had a nice demeanor, but it made it hard to relax and visit."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "We have been to this location several times and the staff is always friendly and attentive. This time was no different. Thank you for allowing us to use the private room for our sons 21st birthday. What a gem!"

  • "Had a very enjoyable evening here! The wine flights were fun and the food was delicious. We also had fun perusing the walls of wine. Although I am not a wine connoisseur, I would definitely recommend The Wine Bistro."

  • "My wife and I chose The Wine Bistro for a date night. We were warmly greeted but was surprised at how LOUD a wine and dine restaurant could be. We asked to be seated away from the loud area and found a nice table near the rear. The appetizers were fantastic, we had the warm olive plate - WOW and a fondue cheese tray, no there wasn't a cheese and chutney plate which was kind of disappointing. We supplemented with the single marmalade they have, again a little disappointing. The wine selection cannot be beat. Service was better than normal and the meatball was very tasty. Overall we enjoyed the outing and the price was reasonable. I really enjoy cheese and chutney with my wine but there really isn't anything like that here."

  • "We always enjoy the wine bistro, the ambience is great. I love the selections of wine that change every time I come in."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Great Service! We love this location. The servers are well educated on the wine list and they are super attentive. This is a small place so when it gets busy the service can be a little slow, but sit back and enjoy the ambience."

  • "I have been to the Wine Bistro on several occasions; however, it has been approximately 6 months since my last visit. Since that time, everything has noticeably gone downhill. You used to receive very personalized and attentive service, but the service on this visit was the worst I've had in a long time. It's called a Wine Bistro yet the server knew nothing about the wine list when asked. She would also disappear for extreme lengths of time. On this visit, I ordered the cheese plate, which I have done in the past. However, on this visit it was 5 cheeses that were almost identical...all of them "hard" cheeses that tasted alike. Literally, one was described as "swiss" and another as "cheddar". Not very exciting. Overall, disappointed."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "We enjoyed our first visit as a nice getaway. The food was great and the wine selection was quite wide. The wine prices were reasonable but the corking fee was outrageous. I realize there needs to be some profit made but charging 8 dollars for a corking fee is high and charging it for wines with a screw top is just downright greedy. We’ll likely return but only on Monday or Tuesday when the corking fee is waived."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "We were seated at an unusual table with unusual and old stuffed chairs, where we were lower than the usual height. It was a little odd to have the table at chest height. It was a busy evening and service was slow. The food was good and the wine flights were nice."

  • "While the ambience and customer service were very good, the experience was ruined when the check came. $13 for a glass of wine is too high, especially when I can but the bottle for $19 - which is what I will do next time - somewhere else."

  • "I asked for a cozy setting and they gave it to us. Our server was new and did everything she could to provide us with our selection of wine samples and food. The food is excellent. I can see why they won such a high rating from everyone. Lovely evening for us and romantic in the charming setting they provide."

The next day friends wanted to go there for sunday lunch, we liked it so well we went back for more. No one had a poor meal. Definatly would go back again."

  • "Love the combo plate options. It's fun to order to different flatbreads at the table. It offers the opportunity to share & explore another menu offering. The atmosphere is relaxed. We chose to sit outside on a beautiful summer day. The fact that one can actually have a conversation in a restaurant dining venue is a plus."
