We have been here many times both with friends and with my wife and always have enjoyed our meal. Great ambiance and helpful staff.

Love the beautiful grounds, gift shop, new pavilion. But the Bistro has been hot, stuffy and bathroom smelly the last two times we dined there. Both times were for Sunday lunch. Both times there was either no air conditioning or whatever ac they had going was clearly insufficient for the space which is wall to wall windows. It would have been much more tolerable if, even if it was summer, they opened the large windows for some circulation. The Bistro manager was lovely and had the same birthday as I 😊

Visited for the first time to celebrate my mother's 65th birthday and had a wonderful time/experience. The only reason I gave 4 Stars instead of 5 was due to the wait time between ordering our food and receiving it. Our meals were delicious, good portions, and friendly/helpful waitstaff. General ambience/ascetics were comforting, sophisticated and peaceful with views of the surrounding grounds. The dining room was a bit warm (seemingly because of the windows framing the dining room). All-in-all it was a pleasant dining experience and we will definitely be dining there again.

Only negative was that service as slow and had to ask more than once for some items. The kitchen and bar could have been some of the problem. Lunch was busy but not packed.

I miss some of the menu items, especially the Trifecta. That’s was a nice treat. Entrees are too pricey. Love the wine but need better food pairings.

Service very slow. It took an hour to get food. Waitress only came by twice to check on us. Group of 12 were partying- very loud. We could not hold a conversation without yelling. Food and wine were good. Went to Pavilion to listen to music. No tables or chairs to sit in. Bartender was no help. We left after 15 minutes. Plenty of room for 15 more tables. Or just chairs. ☹️

I documented food allergies in our reservation but the server and chef were unprepared. If you have food allergies, make sure you call the restaurant in advance.

This would not be a good place for those who are hard of hearing but the vineyards as a whole are beautiful.

We were seated very promptly upon arrival. The venue was beautiful. The service was great. The food was outstanding. It was quite warm the further back into the space you were but otherwise a wonderful experience.

The Bistro at Childress Vineyards is a very beautiful restaurant, that serves excellent food and good wines. The views over the vineyard are spectacular and the facility is gorgeous. I feel the food is overpriced, but otherwise I was extremely satisfied.

Wife and I drove our new car from Charlotte to Childress as a mini-celebration of the purchase. We've been to the Bistro at least two other times and have never been disappointed. The food was better than ever.

We had the cheese plate with charcuterie for an appetizer and it was perfect size for 4 and everything on it was delicious! All our meals were very good too. We preferred the white wines over the red. All in all we had great service and very tasty food!

We have enjoyed dining at The Bistro at Childress Vineyards many times, especially for birthdays and other special occasions. Therefore, it seemed like the perfect place to take my daughter to lunch to celebrate her 21st birthday. Unfortunately, it was not an exceptional experience. Food was excellent, but service was slow and only AFTER our table had purchased 2 desserts, were we told they offered a complimentary birthday brownie. Just a little disappointing overall. I expected a little more celebration. It was also unusually noisy where we were seated and hard to hear our conversations at the table.

We went to the Bistro for Sunday lunch the day after our wedding anniversary. The food was excellent, but it did take a long time after we ordered before the food came to our table (over 40 minutes). We did not complain, but the server had the manager come talk to us and they offered us a dessert on the house as an apology, which we really appreciated. It is obvious that the staff really wants diners to have a great experience. The only complaint I have about my salad was that when it came, it was missing the candied pecans listed on the menu. I did not bring this to my server's attention because by the time the food arrived, I did not care enough to mention it and was just ready to eat.
