Sir Winston Wine Loft & Restaurant
Utilizing a farm-to-table philosophy, we offer exquisitely prepared local food in a world-class setting for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It pains me to be negative to Sir Winston. I have eaten here before and all was good. However their Thanksgiving Dinner basically sucked. The appetizer was good, what I would expect from Sir Winston. The Tuna Poke was delicious and the crispy deviled eggs were great! The Poke was a pleasant surprise. The main course arrived 50+ minutes after we ordered. Our server offered to have a / the manger come by but it's Thanksgiving, hardly time sensitive so we declined. When the main course came out we both got Turkey. We got maybe 4oz each and my wife got the roasted autumn vegetables which were supposed to include broccoli according to the server but contained nothing but stems of veggies. I mean looked like a discount bag from a cheap food store. Unappetizing and not worthy of this place. 5 hours ago I knew I'd be back, but as it stands right now, I doubt I'll ever return. I have never said this before in life, but that was a meal worth $40 that I paid $160 for. And that is not hyperbole. Visit downtown Winston, and support the local cuisine....please! But maybe think twice about this place for a special occasion.
We had Thanksgiving Dinner at Sir Winston Wine Loft and enjoyed every bite! Already thinking about booking for New Year's Eve.
It wasn’t what I was expecting. Wine loft meant something different to me. It’s a restaurant/bar in a hotel lobby. Food was interesting. But space cavernous and loud. Mostly folks staying at the hotel meeting up with colleagues. Food was interesting and that was fun and it was good but again, not the intimate cozy date night vibe I was looking for and extremely small and limited wine list.
We were in town for a soccer tourney and Sur Winston provided space for our team to gather together and enjoy dinner and friendship. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Thank you!
I was super excited to try this place. I think my mistake was I went at lunch instead of dinner. Everything was just a mess from drinks to soup to lunch I believe the server was doing the best they could.
Food and service are always exceptional. My husband and I love the relaxed atmosphere and ingredients are always fresh and local sourced. Menu is updated frequently and desserts are a must.
From the hostess that seated us to the waitress that took care of us, the experience was friendly and attentive. We had not dined hear before and took a chance on an OpenTable review and we’re not disappointed. The food equaled our service experience, it was very good. We will visit again when in the area. The vibe is unique in a really good way. Enjoy!
We enjoyed our visit! The food is delicious, but there wasn't enough variety for our tables needs. A chicken dish would have been helpful. Also, the noise level is pretty high, so carrying on a conversation was a bit more difficult. But, the service was really good, and what we ate was delicious! Thank you!
We did not have a very good experience. The host had trouble finding our reservation. We then ordered a glass of wine and was told there was no more after all other drinks were brought to the table. We tried to order several dishes just to be told they did not have those items that evening. The menu online was not what they were offering in the restaurant, which had items we went specifically there for. We ordered feted butternut squash soup. When it arrives i tried it and it tasted funny. It was actually clam chowder. My friend is highly allergic to shell fish so this could have turned out really badly. When we received our bill there were no deductions made. Overall we were extremely disappointed.
Adam and the entire staff provided an excellent dining experience. The chef came to greet us and the food was fabulous. Will be back!
Terrific place! Best shrimp and grits!
Staff was wonderful and food was very good.
The food was amazing and service was great. Overall was a great experience and my boyfriend and I can’t wait to come back! It wasn’t too noisy when we first got there, but it gets pretty noisy as the night goes on. It didn’t bother us too much, but something to keep in mind!
Loved sitting at the beautiful bar. Staff was very attentive! Nice visit from the new chef. Food was superb.
This restaurant is well positioned in Downtown Winston. On most week nights it is pretty good. Last night it was very noisy. It was a Wake Forest game night and that is part of it. The food is pretty good and the service is quite good and very personal.
Perhaps something can be done about the noise level.
Needs a better kids menu. The food was delicious, just way too loud. Our server was excellent.
Jordan the bartender was fantastic!!
Sir Winston is my new favorite! Our bread basket was amazing! Kinley went out of her way to procure a candle for what I thought was a 42 anniversary, and it was their 40th. Grace was very friendly. I do think that her visits to our table after asking for something could have been more frequent.:)
Everything was perfect! Our server, Grace, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Sir Winston!
We waited longer than an hour to get our food! I clearly asked to get grits with no goat cheese, and by 2 waiters confirmed that I can get another cheese. After hour and 20 mins getting our food( which they apologies for) they bring my grits with goat cheese!!! Asked for onions as soon as i ordered- never got those- asked once I received my food again, noone brought them out!
Get place to meet up with friends. Service was great.
Excellent dining experience! We had great service and amazing food!
Very disappointing. We come here very often but i brought a group of people and one person at our table did not get their food until everyone has finished eating. I had 5 asparagus stalks that were burnt and not many beef tips. I ordered house wine but paid much more than what was listed on the menu. It was difficult not making a deal about it since these were friends of mine. There was only two other tables there so a total of 11 people in the entire restaurant for 1 1/2 hours. Needless to say, none of them want to go back.
Slow and inefficient service. Very loud.
No one to greet when entered and did not have resy info. Only one person tending to tables and very slow service.
Jose made my surprise visit to see the guest chef Digby absolutely memorable :-) it would not have been possible without him and the hosting chef :-) I can’t thank them enough!! I hope the guest chef becomes permanent and the host chef stays!!! Thanks guys for creating a memorable night in Winston Salem!! My husband and I had a blast!! See you soon!
Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Bar service was slow for a glass of wine due to complex drinks on the menu.
Food was amazing!! Service was average but will definitely be coming back!
I took my fellas here for Fathers Day. The drinks and food were really good. The server was very personable and sweet. My only complaint was when selling a dish please list all the ingredients. I have a strong intolerance to pork, like it causes an very uncomfortable gaseous reaction which is unpleasant for all involved. It also took a while to get my drink although I ordered it the same time my boyfriend ordered his. It would have been nice to have been told what was going on before it had been 20 minutes since I ordered. Other than that everyone enjoyed their food, and they’re a picky bunch. Highly recommend.
Music was entirely too loud. We were seated far away on a Sunday afternoon and had to yell to each other to be understood. Much too loud for a brunch crowd. Service was very slow but due to the current circumstances that can be understood. The server was very friendly and I noticed the host and hostess helping get food out. I would like to go back but I will check and see what the music situation is first. It was our first visit.
Coffee was cold. Meal was good except for an undercooked egg and a hair found in our food. Per usual right now, everything was slow. However, management made everything right even though we didn’t complain.
The waiter was fantastic, but the kitchen does bot know the difference in a strawberry rhubarb cobbler abs a blackberry cobbler. A, one is red to pink in color; the other is very dark almost black. B. The date is sweeter with a slight tang ( the rhubarb) and the other is more of a subtle flavor. The kitchen continues to argue the cobble was just rhubarb when we returned the dessert. Some education on what is and isn’t a fruit might help keep your staff on top of what they are cooking and serving!!
Outstanding. Food was great. Service was great. Prices were fair. We will go back soon.
Went with our adult children and parents for my 53rd birthday dinner because no one else is open on Monday night on downtown. Thank you for that! However, our meal took 1 hour and 25 minutes to be served, and when served, all seven plates came out except mine. When mine came our, it was wrong. They didn’t just bring me the vegetables I asked for on a side plate, they took my plate to remove potatoes, brought it back, still without extra veggies. When I asked, they brought 2.5 strands of asparagus. Everyone else was long finished with their food. That said, my steak was good and our family said their food was good. Three stars for the food overall. Was definitely not the best experience.
We’ll never go back again
Hip, energetic atmosphere, excellent food, and truly special service from Amanda. If you're in Winston-Salem, you gotta try this place!
Highly recommend the espresso martini! Everything was delicious and as always it was a great dining experience.
Server was verygood. Drinks excellent
A unique experience in a spacious dining area. I hope the plain decor was not because of the pandemic, but we expected more.
