My family and I had lunch in the restaurant there last year for Christmas. We enjoyed it very much. However, I took my spouse to the Open House yesterday for his birthday, and the buffet food was very average. Reminded me a little of the K&W, not awful, but not really very good either. The Pavilion was cold and the atmosphere rather drab. Not so of the gift shop and bar. They were decorated beautifully and the outdoor setting was very pleasant with so many beautiful acres of vineyards to gaze on. Too bad the food was not better. The buffet cost $37.00 per person...way too much for what was offered and again, the food was very average and bland.

The flights wine sampler was wonderful. The sangria and muscadine were our favorites. The butternut squash soup was delicious. The shrimp and grits was perfect. The small ceasar salad was huge. Pricy but a good place to go every once in awhile!

The atmosphere was great at The Bistro. It was very simple, but elegant for a lunch menu. My friend and I had a waitress that was fantastic. Her name was Tonya, and she was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend The Bistro to anyone who is looking for a great lunch spot.

A beautiful place, only problem was that our waitress disappeared after asking if we wanted the check??? We literally waited for 25-30 minutes just trying to pay our bill. My Dad was so upset, and kept asking if she was okay... we never saw her again? The hostess finally took our payment... but it was just odd. We actually got married at Childress Vineyards back in 2008 and have never had a negative experience there until this one. Very unprofessional...

We have been going for years and are always pleased with the food at Childress Bistro. We arrived well before our reserved time but were almost immediately seated. Of course Childress Vinyards is a winery, but our party was not much into wine so we can offer no thoughts. Two of us had the beef while the other two had "fancy" salads. The beef dish was superb. Similar response from the salad eaters. Overall, the dining experience was excellent.

I met one of my best friends for a "catch up" lunch at The Bistro. She got there a few minutes before I did and texted me "WOW!" I had not told her how impressive the grounds and buildings were - she loved it!The staff was friendly, the service was excellent and the food was gorgeous, generous and delicious! We promised each other we would be meeting there again!!! I live less than 10 minutes away... I should be going more often!

The experience was very good. It was my first visit and I enjoyed a good burger with a side Caesar salad. Glad they offered the burger without the bun. Very juicy.

Our server, Natalie was charming and we enjoyed talking with her. She has great charisma and comes from a marketing background. If you haven't considered this before, she might serve Childress Vineyard well to be involved in your marketing. We think she could sell someone the Brooklyn Bridge. Just sayin...

We enjoy coming to the bistro. The food is typically very good. However, I had the shrimp and grits this time. Even though tasty, I had to send it back. It was WAAAYYY too salty. A shame because I really wanted to eat it. We'll still come back though. It's always a nice experience.

We had a wonderful lunch looking over the vineyard. The tomato bisque was delicious. Chicken croissants were good. Ruben was great. Sweet potato fries are delicious but covered in sugar. Will return again.

Very nice and attractive winery: attractive building, impressive vineyards and property of rolling hills, gigantic tasting rooms and well stocked gift shop, pretty decent bistro with nice views and good food . . . And the actual wines are nice but perhaps not as impressive as a few others in Yadkin Valley. This place feels like and is run like a well oiled Corporate machine that is focused on upon upscale efficiency and volume. Examples: The “ greeter “ directed us to the gift shop even after we said that we preferred to go directly to the bistro to fulfill our pending reservation. The bistro ran out of the featured Seasonal soup at 12:15 just minutes after opening. ( they did have another option ). Then, when I foolishly left my credit card at the table upon leaving the bistro, and hung around the gift shop and tasting rooms for 40 more minutes, no attempt was made to call or text or find me. I drove home 2 hours and then discovered my error. After 3 elapsed hours, still, no call or text. ( yes, they did have my # from the reservation process ). This was a huge disappointment. They had my card in their office. When I called them, I was crisply informed “ we do try immediately to contact the customer in such situations “. Well, uh, NO you do not. Anyway, this is a beautiful facility that is well worth a 2 to 3 hour visit including a tasting and lunch. We did enjoy most aspects of our visit.

My experience was absolutely wonderful! Food, service and ambiance are amazing. Menu is great, a perfect variety in selection but not overwhelming. The only down side is the noise level is a bit higher than you would expect and makes it difficult to carry on a conversation, even with only two of us at a table. I don’t know what could be done to help the noise aspect but it would much nicer if it were quieter. I would definitely recommend going. It’s a beautiful place.

Megan was our server. She was friendly and attentive. My husband and I both had the seasonal apple cider mimosas. It was delicious. We strongly recommend the sausage stuffed mushrooms (also seasonal).

I enjoyed my whole experience. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. the Tour guide Chaz was exceptional. The tour was very interesting and enjoyable. The wine tasting was helpful and they brought me a chair as i cannot stand a long time. Also the meal was delicious and the atmosphere was so enjoyable. The scenery and grounds were beautiful. I will be planning to return in the future.

Childress is lovely but first they told open table we were a no show
Then we waited 15 min to be seated. After seating we waited 1 hr and 15 min for our food. And one of us got the wrong food then had to wait 10 more min. For his food and our server didn’t seem to be at all concerned about any of it. Although manager comped our bottle of wine.it appeared many tables around us had slow service..
Didn’t really enjoy the Sauvignon Blanca wine. But the beauty of the winery masks the poor service. All in all a disappointment and probably won’t come back

I always have a great experience when I come to the vineyard the one thing that added to this visit were those outstanding Apple Cider mimosas. They should be added to the menu permanently.

Food was great and our waiter was great and very funny but the Hostess that seated us left much to be desired. She let a guy pass us In line and we had reservations. We asked her how to sign up for the Wine club membership and she was clueless but offered to find us a brochure and bring it to our table but then she never came back to the table with a brochure. The bistro is very loud. We were expecting a more private intimate meal but the food was absolutely delicious and did not disappoint.
