We were looking for a lively venue for dinner with friends with a good wine/beverage menu, modern food offerings and bonus points for the AL/LSU game. #RTR Vino Bistro seemed to fit the bill. I was excited to find the classic Aviation cocktail on the menu - a great start! Love a good charcuterie board; check. We enjoyed speaking with owner and sommelier Michael as he helped us select 2 very good wines at great price points for a restaurant. The menu had a solid variety of interesting options to fit all tastes. Ultimately 2 of the 4 of us chose steak. Sadly one came out so rare (both ordered medium) it had to be sent back. At about this same point, wines served and food delivered, the service also became far less attentive. Odd for a small and seemingly well-staffed restaurant. This was fine while we enjoyed our meals and conversation, but we eventually struggled to obtain and pay our bill to leave. We noticed Michael was gone, maybe service drops off after he leaves?
This was not a cheap dinner so we will need to try again to see if the value is there. I hope so as Leesburg can always use a new creative spot. I definitely recommend trying out the wines by the bottle for excellent selection and pricing.
The wine selection is great and the wait staff really knows their stuff! Always great recommendations. Food is excellent, and the kitchen is extremely accommodating to food allergies
Vino Bistro offers Great food, wine and drink. I highly recommend.
Girls dinner and it was fantastic!
Had a very nice dinner at Vino Bistro. Food and drinks were excellent but service was a little off. They seemed a little shorthanded and had to track server down several times. Wanted to order dessert but finally gave up. Other than that, we really like menu and will give them another try.
It was very nice
Wonderful dinner and our wait staff was superb! Our requests for splitting dinners and unusual cocktails were met with patience, kindness and graciousness. Everything was delicious and enjoyed by all 4 of our party.
We had a table near the open garage door and the temperature was perfect. Just like sitting on the patio. Good food wine and friendly service.
Love the wine selection and variety choices of food! It’s our 3rd visit and everything was excellent as usual. We love coming here as always enjoy the outdoor seating and warm welcome from the staff and owner! Great place!
There were four of us who decided to dine here after reading great reviews. It was still Loudoun Restaurant Week so we got to try appetizers, entrees, and desserts for a great price. Plus they also had a wide variety of wines choices. All of us enjoyed our apps and meals and were very impressed with our choices. The desserts were delicious as well. We will definitely return!!
This was my first time at this restaurant, I came for Restaurant Week lunch. I had the pork belly appetizer which I was told would be crispy was just tough it; appeared as a disheveled dish and was rather bland and tasteless. I ordered the cheese grits with shrimp and chorizo. The shrimp were really small and overcooked while the grits had lumps. This was particularly disappointing since I had attended another Restaurant Week lunch just a few days earlier; that restaurant had prepared an excellent meal with large shrimp and creamy grits that were well seasoned and spicy. For dessert I had ordered the key lime tart; unfortunately the tart shell crust was soft and the key lime filling was rather unremarkable with a large dollop of whipped cream.
I informed the server about my disappointment with the meal, specifically the dessert. She offered a replacement but having experienced such displeasure with all three courses; I just wanted to leave.
The restaurant was not full for lunch, we were in no rush during our dining experience so I believe this is just the way they execute their menu items on a regular basis.
I would not recommend this restaurant and their are far better choices for Restaurant Week than this.
The food was great. I would definitely like to go again. However, on this particular night, the service was pretty slow. I will grant that it was restaurant week in Loudoun County and there was a live band playing outside. However, by the end of the meal, most of the place had cleared out and service was still pretty slow.
We had a great meal, happy hour pricing wine by the glass and the Loudoun county restaurant week menu. Shrimp and Grits and the lamb shank.
Love the wine festivals, we attened the Pinot festival. Perfect to pair wine tasting with lunch.
We found out about Vino Bistro when we went to a farewell party recently. The apps were wonderful, plentiful and wines were superb.
My husband and I went to dinner there this weekend and were so very pleased.
We will definitely be back.
It can be a good value for you money but it depends what one orders from the menu. The highest price dinner, was appx. $36. However, they had good choices for much less.
People brought their young children and I don’t think this is the best place for them unless they are seated outside, where it is much more family friendly.
It is not too large inside so we happened to be leaving when a family with not such well behaved young children were seated very near.
Lovely atmosphere and venue! Outstanding service. Wine paired beautifully with dinner.
Fabulous food. Very noisy though. They were very busy too.
We have found our weekend hangout. We have been a few times. We like to sit and listen to the free concert outside and relax. The staff is great.
FOOD IS GREAT...VERY NICE STAFF AND LOVED THE WINE AND BISTRO THEME THROUGHOUT...DEFINITELY WILL VISIT AGAIN!!!
Great meal. We are big fans of their other restaurant The Wine House in Fairfax and could not wait to try out their new location. Awesome menu, very nice wine list, love the full bar and beer options and the patio is nice a big with lots of tables (when it’s not 105 degrees out). Can’t wait to come back when the weather is a bit cooler to enjoy outside seating. Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice meal or just a glass of wine and some snacks with friends.
Beautiful night to sit outside and listen to music! The food was amazing and staff very friendly:)
Great food, great wine list, the people are warm and welcoming. Also a super happy hour.
Nice surprise. First time visitor. Dined after lunch rush. Creamy hummus was tasty. The Kiwi (named after the owner who is from New Zealand I was told) burger with fries was perfectly done and delicious. Homemade lemon marscapone cake was fluffy and light. This restaurant is a solid choice.
The restaurant and bar are beautiful. The waiter was slow, and it was not busy. Wasn't impressed with the food. Probably won't return. Not our style
We have been a few times now and have had a great experience. We will definitely keep coming back. Love being able to mix it up between the cheese and charcuterie plate.
We sat outside on a Saturday nite when there was a concert going on in the street across from VB. This was a little loud, but it was over at 8 and things got much quieter. Normally this shouldn’t be a problem.
Food was great, service was great. This was our second time there for a meal, and the staff and owner have been very friendly and willing to share information about the food and the restaurant in general.
Server was great, steak had to be sent back to be cooked a few additional seconds. Scallops were great (and warm) but risotto on the same plate was cold.
Great food and service. Very enjoyable experience.
We like the place a lot. Nice menu. The service wasn’t quite as sharp as you would expect. Would like to go back for appetizers. Enjoyed meeting the owner, Michael.
Excellent food and service in a beautiful setting with outside tables.
Enjoy this restaurant, food is very good, got some good wines, but prices are a little high compared to similar restaurants. Great atmosphere...and nice outdoor patio1
Had a nice dinner overall. Seems to be struggling a bit with staffing but everyone seems to be eager to do a good job. I'm trying to go gluten free so ordered a bit differently than I usually do. Had their roast chicken and it was delicious. My partner ordered the Cod which was lovely as well. It's a little on expensive side which I hope doesn't turn some people off because they definitely have an excellent menu worth the price.
Amazing steak frites, so tender. Owner stopped by to tell us about restaurant. They use New Zealand grass fed beef only. Was a treat! Also had rockfish with spring risotto and it was an enormous serving. Delicious and fresh. Another in my party really enjoyed the scallops. We ended dinner with bread pudding dessert that rocked. Also, they have a really nice wine selection/ we were assisted by sommelier who was very attentive.
Excellent food and service. Consistently exceeds our expectations.
Great neighborhood place. Excellent value for outstanding food and service. The wine selection is fantastic and very reasonably priced.
My friends and I enjoyed a nice brunch on the patio while enjoying champagne cocktails. The brunch menu was excellent and our server made a few recommendations for us. The food was delicious! Definitely coming back :)
Went to check out a new place because Open Table let us know. We arrived for our reservation on time and were seated immediately. The restaurant was mainly empty, but the hostess sat us at a table less than a foot away from another dining couple while the majority of the place was empty. Waitstaff asked if we would like to be re-seated and then moved us closer to the garage doors. Wine menu consisted of ~ 10 red and 10 whites by the glass or bottle. We ordered Butternut Risotto (wife) and Icelandic Cod (me) dishes. It took almost an hour to get served our food and the food was nothing to rave about. The Cod and couscous was tepid and seemed to have sat for a while waiting to be served. The Risotto was undercooked (still crunchy) and again warm not hot. There are no extras included in the meal as you would expect from the price range. Bread is not included but can be bought for additional costs. Normally, my wife and I give places 2 chances before we decide its not for us, however, we decided because the place wasn't busy and this is the best it could present, we will not be back.
Kate is a wonderful waitress, very outgoing and knowledgeable. Food was awesome. We have put this restaurant on our return list.
How nice for a restaurant to accommodate Catholics during Lent by adding specific fish dishes to the menu. The scallops over zucchini noodles in a champagne cream sauce was amazing. The mussels I had for lunch were delicious, too. And of course, the wine is yummy. Well worth the trip.
This was our first time visiting this restaurant and we will definitely be back! We had great attentive servers (but not too attentive;) and the food tasted fresh and well prepared. It had a nice casual ambience with a relaxed atmosphere.... a good place to have lunch/dinner or a drink with friends at the bar.
