The Bistro at Flat Creek Estate Ratings and Reviews
The Bistro is lovely, but we arrived mid-afternoon and service was very spotty. Took them almost 10 minutes to notice we were waiting to be seated and then we weren't given any information about specials until we asked our waitress, who at first didn't think they had any and then remembered that they did, but knew very few details. The food was good, but nothing mind-blowing. Disappointed for the price and the amount of driving required to get there. I realize that their servers don't work for tips (paid a living wage), but there should be some standard for service.
This is a must-do if you are in the Hill Country! Regardless of whether or not you are wine connoisseur. The ambience is superb and the service is great! This was our second trip and for our wine tasting we actually got taken care by the ownser of the winery! It was an absolute pleasure! We want with kids 4-6 years of age and she and others were very patient.
Lovely winery. Beautiful setting in the hill country. Quiet and serene. The owner came to our table numerous times to talk about the different wines. She was very friendly and genuine. The food was delicious. The Rose wine was very good. We will definitely come back.
We've been Flat Creek before, and it's always been good. The scenery and ambiance make up for the winery being out in the middle of nowhere. My one complaint was the lack of choices available when we dined (4 pm). Apparently we were either too late or too early to get anything other then salad, pizza, filet or a hamburger. No fish or chicken at all. I would avoid coming during this no-man's time.
Love the new menu items, and the new wine selections. I was pleased to introduce the bistro to some friends who didn't know they served such delightful foodie offerings. We had a lovely lunch on the back porch, with a lovely breeze compliments of mother nature.
My husband and I ate here on our visit to the Texas Hill Country. It was the best food from the overall trip. Everything on the menu is tasty. We ate outside and loved the atmosphere looking out over their vineyards. Felt like we were in Napa. Also did their wine tasting and toured the winery. Grounds are beautiful. Very friendly. Best vineyard to visit on any trip to the Hill Country. Not to be missed.
The location itself is nice being a vineyard. But the dining experience fell way short of what l and my companion hoped for. The service was horribly slow. We got our wine fairly fast but our appetizer of bread and cheese took about 25 minutes. And it was not anything special. We never got refills of water and finally my friend just got up and went and got a carafe of water off the wait station. When our waiter noticed he just kinda laughed.
When he finally got around to taking our dinner order we had been sitting with empty app plates for about 15 or 20 minutes.
When we got our entrees, my friend's wood oven pizza was cooked perfectly but was cold. My pasta entree was hot but flavorless. So I guess her pizza just sat for a long time while my entree was prepared?
The waitstaff do not work for tips. Any cash left behind is supposedly donated to a children's cause. Maybe that is why the service is terrible. They get no benefit from giving good service.
We won't go back.
Enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch on the patio with peaceful beautiful view. Could also order from the regular menus so choices not limited to brunch items. Will definitely return. Would like to try evening patio dining on a warm evening. Since it's at a winery, great wine, too.
Wonderful!!! What a very special place! Great food, excellent wine, kind service, beautiful view! And Eddie the star gazer capped off the night! One minor suggestion would be a different genre of music - Spanish or acoustic guitar, country, etc would be great instead of 90s pop instrumental.
We will definitely be back!!!
Extremely slow service, even for wine, at a winery. Never got offered a second glass of wine, pizza came an hour after we sat down and was cold. Very overpriced. Even after complaining about the service and awful food, got a check for $50 for 2 people. Will never return.
The Bistro at Flat Creek always is absolutely outstanding. Great food, ambiance, service , with very relaxed dining. I am so glad they have expanded the menu. Lots of very nice choices. We enjoyed a mid afternoon lunch with friends on the porch overlooking the vineyards. We will return soon!
We love Flat Creek for it's wines as well as the Bistro. When we have friends in from out of town, it's a must do stop for brunch and tastings on one of the days they are in. My wife and also enjoy it just because it's such a nice time for just the two of us.... Why wait for company? If you haven't been yet, you are missing a treat!
