    Wine Country does have a vibrant bar scene that can get quite noisy at times, however when seated in the restaurant - rather than the bar - the noise-level isn't bad at all. ThIs is no pick-up bar - the clientele is impressive. I can see where seniors would find the place too noisy and energetic in the evening, but we love it. It has the best happy hour in the city with half price well drinks (and their well liquors are premium) to a wide selection of lovely wine. Best value on the bar menu: Fish and Chips - a large portion. Salads are fantastic and they are committed to a local, sustainable menu. If you're looking for quiet, this probably isn't the place, but if you're looking for great food, wine and energy you'll love it.

    I was in Shreveport for business with 2 co-workers. We found this restaurant on Open Table and thought it sounded good. We made a reservation for 6:30 using open table. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess barely greeted us. She treated us like we were inconveniencing her for having made a reservation and then showing up. She told us it would be a few minutes. We had to stand and wait in the deafeningly loud entrance way. We noticed people coming in after us being seated. We asked the manager what the hold up was he got very annoyed at us and told us that people had been waiting since 5:30. Since we had a reservation, we weren't sure why this was our problem. We were finally seated at 7. There was no apology.

    Went to Wine Country for my wife's birthday. The food was really good. We both had the duck breast and it was very good. At first the server was a bit harried because she had three tables seated at the same time, but she worked through it and did a good job. Especially noteworthy is the fact you can go into the bottle shop and get a bottle of wine for dinner.

    Every time we visit Wine Country the food seems to be a hit or miss. There is no need to have a band playing inside the restaurant. The band takes away from being able to carry on a meaningful conversation. My husband ordered the NY Strip and substituted vegetables for the potatoes. The meat was tuff and the sauce was luke warm. He had to send the plate back because they forgot to substitute the vegetables. There is no need to have an inside band playing inside a restaurant. It only amplifies the noise and makes everyone talk louder.

    This could be my favorite restaurant in Shreveport. Unfortunately for me, it caters to the happy hour crowd and is beyond noisy! I am a senior citizen, and my generation just can't take it! In fact, when I told friends I had reservation, they all said TOO NOISY. It's a shame too. The menu selection was great. The food is as good as any in town. The waiter, Jim was perfect. Maybe a solution would be to close off the dining room from the bar. It's not a large dining room, but might suffice. Anyway, I won't be back until the noise problem is fixed.

    We have been going to the Wine Country since moving here two years ago. It has gone downhill in the past year, both in quality of food and the service. This experience will be the last. The service was poor..from bringing our main coarse midway thru our salads, with no place to put it on the table, to not checking back with us on our food.....my husbands pork chop was not cooked thru, he only ate a couple of bites and she never questioned why. The greens which came with my salmon were so salty I could not eat them. When I mentioned this to our waitress, it did not seem to concern her...she just wanted to know if we wanted dessert. The food and service would have been better off at home.

Our waiter was secretive with my husband bc they planned this elaborate surprise with my vera wang anniversary band inside my dessert. Everything was perfect, from the food down to the ambiance of the place. Most definitely going again.

    I have actually been to Wine Country Bistro three times in the last two years--once for lunch and twice for dinner. Two times, we dined in the bar area, and this last time in the dining room. Being from the New Orleans area, where we have numerous great restaurants, I love this place. The menu is based on fresh, seasonal ingredients, so it changes often based on availability--nothing is stagnant or stale here! This last time, I ordered Pan Seared Salmon, which was cooked to perfection--medium-rare and creamy--delicious. My daughter had the Hudson Valley Seared Duck Breast, which was amazing. Her friend had the Fruit de Mer, which was a seared grouper that night-perfect! The service was impeccable, as always. Will definitely dine here again.

    I recently visited the Shreveport area for a concert and did some research on places to eat. This place was recommended by quite a few people so I decided to give it a try. We sat in the front bar dining area. I didn't not wander through the other portion of dining area. Our server was very nice and attentive. Did a great job at recommending some dinner ideas. I would recommend the Cheese Platter. It has a few meats and cheeses, great for an early dinner starter. We also had the Filet. It was cooked to our specification. It does come with a side of potatoes but it was very small. If you are really hungry would consider ordering other side items because the potato portion was very small. If you in town or out-of-town, check this place out.

    A last minute trip to Shreveport had us looking for dinner reservations on New Years Eve. Thankfully we found Wine Country Bistro! We were told we'd be sitting in the bar(as if a penalty) but the atmosphere was actually great. Tables were plenty separated and conversations levels were fine. The food throughout the evening was great! From the French onion soup, to the shrimp and grits, to the grilled salmon on kale with truffle macaroni and lastly the small beef filet was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth. Our least favorite of the evening was the tomato soup, but that was mainly in comparison to the onion soup that was so excellent. All and all, will be one of my favorites on future trips to the Shreveport area.

    We love Wine Country. We were not impressed with this last visit. Although the service was excellent, the cuisine was not so wonderful. Our appetizers were brought to the table barely warm. Our entree's were overcooked and the vegetables were soggy. Dessert was very good so we did leave on a positive note. We will be back with the hope our next dining experience is more enjoyable.

    Wine country is a fixture in Shreveport. If you haven't seen a friend in a while, you'll likely bump into them there one night. If you want to know what look is en vogue, you can find it there. If you enjoy tables full of women dressed in their favorite Christmas -themed clothing, make a lunch reservation. If you to have a quick business lunch, you can show your out-of-town guest a menu made for any appetite. If you want to enjoy upscale bourbon after work, you can sit by the bar and meet new friends. There is always something going on at Wine Country. See you there.

    We went to Wine Country Bistro for my husbands birthday, we are new to Shreveport and have been searching for a special occassion restaurant, this is it! The prices are what you'd expect at a higher-end restaurant (three course plus wine around $120), the food was phenomenal! We shared the cilantro jalapeno mussels which were cooked perfectly and delicately seasoned (not spicy at all, we like spicy but these were perfectly seasoned), my husband had the pheasant special which was unique and delicious, I had the duck and squash cavatelli which was absolutely amazing. Then we shared the bread pudding and our very thoughtful waiter put a candle on the plate (thanks Brannon!) for a birthday wish! We had a lovely evening and will be back soon!

    My wife and I went there for our anniversary and arrived around 5:30. There wasn't a lot of people there which was nice since it made the atmosphere a little more quite. Our server was very good as well. My wife was unsure of what type of wine she might like since she is not a big wine drinker, nor am I. But he brought out a few samples for her to try and even made some suggestions on what she might like. They do know their wine there. We started off with the fried green tomatoes and the shrimp and grits. Both were very good. She had the duck and I had the filet mignon, both were excellent. The price for the meal was a bit expensive, but we both felt it was well worth it.

    We were headed back on a long road trip from Texas to Michigan and chose Shreveport as a stopping point to spend the night. We searched Open Table and found Wine Country Bistro. What a gem! The ambiance is that of an Italian ristorante and the menu offers a nice variety of small plates and entrees. We ordered a wonderful bottle of Tempranillo and coupled it with crab cakes, fried green tomatoes and a salad. The staff was remarkably welcoming. We had a lovely evening. We only wish we lived closer so we could frequent this restaurant!
