This was mine and my husbands First experience at the Bistro. It was suppose to be a lovely evening celebrating Valentine’s Day, one of the most romantic days of the year. I made our reservation well in advance and couldn’t wait to dine at the beautiful Childress Vineyards and experience the lovely decor and all that was pictured and advertised. We were greatly misled!! We were seated in an overflow room with no beautiful views right by the door. We felt like we should just get up and leave. Our reservation time was a typical time-7 pm. We aren’t older people who eat at 4 or 5 pm. We arrived a few minutes early checked in and waited to be seated. We thought we were going into the beautiful room overlooking the vineyards, etc. but instead we’re brought to a cold and unromantic over flow room. We asked if we could be moved but it was a stern no. I would fully understand being in an overflow room if I was a last minute reservation but we weren’t!!! Roses were being given to each woman (not purchased given upon seating) but not me. Why? Who knows? My husband had gotten me some already so no big deal just a little rude. Our server was just ok and my meal wasn’t prepared properly but I didn’t say anything because I wanted my husband’s dinner not to get cold. It was just an overall disappointing experience for us. We paid our check and just went on our way 😔 unhappy and discouraged.

Perfect meal and the wait staff are extremely professional and personable. Just wish the kitchen staff would keep the doors closed so we wouldn’t hear the dishes being thrown about. One of my favorite places to eat.

My husband and I visited Childress Winery and had lunch at the Bistro in February. The food was good and it is a very nice place but it was freezing in the Bistro...thus making our meal much less than enjoyable. I realize that on the website they warn you of this but in my opinion there is no call for the management to not provide more heat on colder days in The Bistro. Will NOT go back unless it is warmer weather!

I took a friend to lunch because she had never been here before. The food was great and our waiter, Blake was very knowledgeable about the food and the menu. We will be back again soon... Using the Open Table process to make reservations was very convenient.

 (Western NC)·Dined on January 27, 2018

Buffet only offered at dinner. $35 per person was a bit unexpected for only prime rib chicken and small salmon. - two veggies and salad with basic desserts. Nice place but not sure it is worth the cost for dinner meal. Service was great and enjoyed the setting but not sure it is worth the cost. Lunch is much better choice and not buffet. If they can improve dinner options would be home run.

The food was delicious! We went with a large group of friends and were able to be seated near each other, which was nice. The decor was beautiful and buffet was decorated as well. We will definitely be back.

I traveled to Childress with three other friends from Charlotte to celebrate two January birthdays. We had lunch on a Wednesday afternoon and had a wonderful time. The best parts of the experience were: 1) a WONDERFUL waitress, Becki, who had a wonderful sense of humor and attended to our every need, 2) a WONDERFUL view of the vineyards, and 3) the lovely venue. The trip to Childress is very manageable from Charlotte and only took about 50 minutes one way.

The food tasted great and service was good too although a little slow but they were pretty busy which could have been the reason. Atmosphere was nice but be sure to dress warm if temps outside are cold as the bistro has large windows and Is a little drafty.

We always love our experience at Childress. Everything from the food to the service to the decor is exceptional. It makes you feel you are transported to the "wine country" for an afternoon! I can't wait for spring to see the beautiful vineyards!

Food was very good. However, Spinach/roasted red pepper dip was very spicy. So much so, both of us had watery eyes! Mentioned it to the server who said someone must have added extra spices. Should be marked spicy on the menu. Otherwise, great meal!

We had a wonderful time at Childress! I asked for a beautiful table for my friends surprise birthday and we got it! Also, their wine flights are scrumptious as well as their spinach dip! I highly recommend going for any special occasion or even a nice getaway for two!

Every time we go we say "we should do it more often."
Only concern is every other visit or so, the kitchen runs out of something. With the limited, but good menu being the same every day, I believe it should stay stocked one day ahead to avoid this issue. It would still be fresh and could be borrowed against if a particular selection was chosen a lot over the current day. See you again soon

This was my second visit in two weeks. After the first visit, I knew I had to let my husband experience the atmosphere. I booked reservations and took him to lunch as part of his Christmas. We enjoyed shopping in the gift store also. Last but not least, I think its very nice that Mr. Childress has been at the bistro both times. He always comes around and greets the customers. The Christmas decorations are beautiful. Can't wait to visit again and we live an hour and a half away.
