The staff is amazing. They are very helpful and polite. When I arrived I was quite displeased with my seat and the hostess and waitresses worked it out so I could sit in the best seat. Shout out to Paula, she's amazing. All the Bistro staff is great! Thank you for an awesome birthday. We come often and will continue to do so!

Overall our lunch was delicious. The cheeseboard is always a hit with us. Our only complaint is that my husbands blackened salmon with couscous was salty. Would definitely still go back.

Our waitress (can't remember her name) had lost her voice the previous day. She was a trooper in serving us, and was very nice, very prompt in getting our order. Food was delicious, and wine was outstanding.

We love the Bistro. The food was delicious and the service was good. We were there for our 49th Anniversary lunch. The only draw back is thT when you book a reservation on line you can not pick where you want to sit. We were less than thrilled with were we had to sit.

Overall, I had a very enjoyable visit. The caesar salad with shrimp was excellent and my mom loved the Bistro Burger. However, I wasn't warned about how hot the Pimento Cheese Dip was, and I severely burned the roof of my mouth that was sore for 3 days. Despite that, I would still return and recommend to friends!

We had all gotten a different type of salad as our entrees. The service and wine were excellent. However 2 out of the three salads were missing items off that were described in the menu. One was the chicken Caesar that had no parm crips and when asked got shaved parm. The other was the Greek salad and no olives. Substituted goat cheese for feta which was great but got charged to have oil and vinegar on the side but still didn’t get item in salad. Friend also got charged for the parm cheese but that was taken off when brought to servers attention. Overall it was good. Loved the view!

The Trifecta menu with wine was very good and it was fun to try different wines with the three courses. The grounds at Childress are attractive. It is great to sit outside after a meal and enjoy one more glass of wine while looking at the vineyard. The day we were there, they were picking and crushing grapes - also fun to observe.

Everything was fantastic! Food, wine, view and service. The only thing that I would suggest is to have the kitchen staff keep their music down. That was a distraction. But next time Im in town, I will for sure be back!

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wine we enjoyed at lunch. We have visited a number of North Carolina wineries since moving here and were disappointed with all of them. Your Barrel Select 2013 Merlot was was moderately priced and quite excellent with our meal . We will be back

This was a special occasion as we had family in town from Massachusetts and it was also the afternoon of the solar eclipse. I had been to Childress's Winery for business meetings and decided to try lunch. Everything was great. The ambiance, the food and especially Brandy our knowledgeable and expert waitress. We will definitely be back in the future.
