Julie and Patrick and all the Blue Ostrich crew always go out of their way to ensure the best experience. Wine tastings with beautiful vistas overlooking the vineyards in the covered pavilion make for a great getaway from the metroplex hustle. Their live music and tasty snacks make it even more enjoyable. But the wine and the friendly smiles that greet you are the best part!

This was our second visit. Several flights to choose from to suite different tasting styles. The hostess was friendly and pleasant, giving descriptions of the wines she poured. The patio provides a beautiful scenery overlooking the vines. We ordered the cheese and sausage plate, both were great and made a nice snack. We will return again when we are in the area

Reservation required was for Covid, but now will remain. Unable to stay longer than 90 minutes. Unable to just visit on the spur of the moment. With a reservation, it may be a nasty, rainy day. Unable to hear the singers, volume was so low. When questioned, they said the management told them to keep it down. They were really good and would have liked to have been able to hear their voices. Blue Ostrich is not as good as it used to be before Covid, and now that things are lifted, they continue to require reservations.

Beautiful view. They still have a couple of Ostridge's. You could walk around a little bit. Their wine is for people who likes wines with very sweet note We got a flight and we didnt like any. Too sweet for us. If you hungry you should eat before you come. There were a live music but was little bit too loud.
Again the view is magnificent!

Beautiful view and live music. The warmed nuts appetizer was very good. The meat and cheese board was good, but wish they would have served it with crackers instead of potato chips. That was a little odd. My only complaint is that we were rushed away from our table for the next reservation. We still had 7 minutes left on our reservation, and workers started clearing our table and reaching over us. They even took our glasses which still had wine in them! That felt rude.

always love going to blue ostrich. We have been members for 6 years and counting. Great wine and great atmosphere. Food is good too. Wish we could still take our own cheese and fruit with us but that stopped during covid and still not allowed. But overall always a great visit.

It was quite a drive but a pleasant surprise. The wines were good and the open air seating overlooking the vineyards was nice. The small appetizer plates were tasty but pretty small for the price. We enjoyed seeing the ostriches snd got some great pics.

We visit Blue Ostrich regularly and enjoy the wine. Service is good food choices are ok. Music the past weekend was in my opinion not what I would have offered on Mother’s Day. We will continue to drive up from Denton to enjoy the wine and the scenery.

The wine was great, burgers were being grilled and smelled so good so that’s what we ate - they were delicious! My only complaint is the acoustics. It was very hard to carry on a conversation with those at my table or to hear the server.
