My husband and I celebrated his 76th birthday at the Bistro. As always, the food was delicious. I had Austin's turkey sandwich and he had the filet. Both were cooked/fixed to perfection. We were placed at a table by the window overlooking the water and I was quite pleased. This was my request when I made the reservation. The waitress was was attentive, pleasant, mannerly and always kept our drinks filled. All in all, we had a wonderful time and we're already looking forward to another outing at the Bistro.

This is the second time my husband and I have been for Sunday lunch. The food was wonderful! My husband ordered the scallops, which was absolutely divine. I ordered the Cuban sandwich special with tomato soup. It was also wonderful. The staff was friendly and our waiter was great. We had reservations but were able to be seated 20 minutes early. Could not have had a better experience.

Very good experience, great views of the vineyards and the food was very good. It was a bit loud in the bistro so if you want something quiet you may want to request a particular table. They are very accommodating.

Enjoyed yet another trip to Childress. Surprised they had discontinued the "Trifecta" from the menu but the choices were still good. Beautiful venue and great service.

Great food, service and awesome view, all at a decent price. One of our favorite lunch spots. Excellent variety of wines in a cozy restaurant. Always need to make reservations a day in advance!

Made reservation. When we got there at 12:30, we were told that the only table
available was right at the door. I ordered the Ty's burger without the bun. Absolutely the worst burger I have ever been served. I ate about three bites. The tomato, onion and lettuce were horrible.
I will add, however, that my husband did enjoy his steak. I did talk with other customers who said that the food does need improving.

Horrible experience. Service was awful. We planned a special trip to celebrate my mother and my birthdays and it was awful. The server never put our order in and served every table around us without checking back on us. We were completely forgotten about and the manager didn’t seem to care at all. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Worst experience and no empathy from the staff.

This is my 3rd time organizing an event at The Bistro at Childress Vineyards for a Ladies Day Out. In the past, everything has been on point and wonderful.

This time, however, our service was horrible. I'm not sure if the waitress was just having a bad day or what, but she had a frown from beginning to end and was extremely unfriendly.

The ladies in my party that were drinking wine/alcoholic drinks were not offered seconds. Anytime we needed something we could not find our waitress. When she did finally appear, one lady would ask for something and she was gone while another was in mid sentence trying to get a refill or whatever she needed. This happened every single time. We were served a cheese board with no idea what was on it and no utensils for it, other than a butcher knife. We were also not offered any dessert. We had to get another waitress 3 times in order to get things we needed. On the 3rd time, that waitress had gotten the manager. The waitress that helped us was extremely busy herself, but still took the time to help us out and was friendly.

The manager did offer to help us on our bill, but we had already paid. A couple ladies did take a bottle of wine home with them that the manager offered. After 2 hours, we were just ready to leave. It was honestly the worst service I have ever experienced anywhere.

The food, however, was delicious!

It was a complete let down. Had been before for Fathers Day and was so excited about Mothers Day brunch. It was like being at a hotel meeting room. The staff was hard to find and it took forever to just get a drink. There are beautiful rooms and we were put into a windowless meeting room that did not suit the elegant mothers day brunch they promised. Total let down dont think I will attend Fathers Day brunch this year as they are saying it will be indoors.

We unfortunately had reservations at 2:30. They close at 3. Our waitress was too busy doing side work to get out than to wait on us. Several times we had to ask someone to find her. Everything else was great!!! Love this winery !!

Worst experience ever! We made a "special" trip from Raleigh to Jamestown...picked up my Dad & Stepmother, then drove to Lexington to treat them to a special day of wine tasting and lunch at Childress. We did not get the window seat we requested 1+week in advance when making the reservations but that's ok...disappointing but ok. We ordered 2 Reubens, and 1 Strawberry entee Salad. After about 30-35 minutes we asked our waiter to please check on the order..he just smiled, said ok, walked away straight to the soda machines and started making drinks. He did not head to the kitchen nor did he return to give us an update. Personally, I think he forgot to put in our order or something was TERRIBLY wrong in that kitchen. Our food finally arrived after waiting 55 minutes...we could have driven back to Jamestown, made the sandwiches and driven back to Childress in that length of time. Not sure we would return...too bad. Beautiful place!
