My friend and I found this place on Open Table and didn’t know much about it. We were very pleased! We had a great meal and EXCELLENT mixed drinks. The staff was so friendly too. Loved the ambiance and the activity at the bar with the mixologists. Just an overall great experience.

We live Vino Bistro! It is now our go-to for a great night hanging with friends. The bar tender is MAGIC and the food is excellent (and we are crazy picky!)

They have a Sommelier on staff and a huge selection of really great wines. The food is amazing but also a great value. Their service is really excellent as well!

Dinner before a concert. The food was amazing. We all ordered the beet salad. We especially loved the wine! A fantastic Tempranillo from Spain. We were happy to see the restaurant busy!!

Great location, and the food was very tasty. We sat there for a while and had to ask someone to send waitstaff to our table. Once we had a wait person, it was a pleasant experience and the wine suggestions were very good.

The Sauvignon Blanc was delicious on a warm summer’s night.
The wine manager was very knowledgeable and helpful!
We ordered the grilled salmon and it was simply delicious!
Everyone we interacted with friendly, helpful, and professional.

We don't often get to this part of Loudon Co, but it was well worth the trip. Eclectic decoration plus inventive and delicious menu plus enthusiastic wait staff equals a great evening out at a great value. We had the mix and match charcuterie board for an appetizer and the duck and beef burgundy and sampled several wines. The wines were sold and at a very good price point and the food was fresh, delicious and a different take on the old standards. The waitress "lost" our dessert ticket, and we wanted forever for the bread pudding (which was superb, btw) but they took it off the bill and also gave us free coffee. We look forward to returning soon.

We loved the intimacy of the restaurant and the food was absolutely excellent. We had the cheese board, roasted beet salad appetizers, and seafood, salmon, beef filet, and Beef Burgundy entrees. All were superb…in addition to the French press coffee, bread pudding, and wonderful service. We shall return soon.

We ate outside. It was noisy, though the outdoor entertainer was good. The servers were spread thin, as is the current shortage, so service was a bit slow. Our server was very friendly but only had time to get us one drink a piece during the whole meal. Unfortunately, we were expecting a slightly more elevated meal for the price and set up. My shrimp was overcooked, so it was chewy. The risotto needed more seasoning. My husband said his steak was ok. A little disappointing.

Booked this based on the rave reviews. It was 'okay'. It says dress code is biz casual yet the staff are dressed in in cami tops /jeans,which is fine but don't have a dress code. Wait staff are clearly new (which seems to be the situation everywhere) but for a small menu I would expect the staff to be more knowledgeable. The Cippolini stew with Chorzio was robust and had great flavors. Filet mignon @ $39 was decent size and cooked to required taste but the au poivre sauce looked anemic and had a few sparse peppercorns in it. Steak Frites cooked to liking also but again, the sauce lacked authenticity. Mussels were tasty and good sauce with bacon. All food could have been a little warmer with temperature. As the staff were not on their game we didn't feel like complaining and sending it back. We asked for the dessert menu and there are 3 options I think. When we ordered the one we wanted we were told it was not available. But the creme brulee was delicious. Good price point on drinks and wine. Food price point is high for location/quality and level of service. The ambience was not as expected. Dark colors/nouveau type. AC could have been better but than could have been on off night. Would we go back? Probably not. The Italian joint next door was hopping and had a nice vibe to it.

If you go to Vino Bistro, go for the food--it's good--and the company of your dining companions and resolve to be chill about the erratic service. The kitchen has its act together, the front of the house--not so much. After 15 minutes, we finally got glasses of water and ordered wine. The wine came 20 minutes later. We laughed it off and had a good time. We ordered the battered shrimp appetizer (good), a market salad (fresh and lightly dressed), the branzino (delicious), steak frites (also delicious), with sides of Brussels sprouts and a risotto cake. I'd go back for the food for sure.

The food was good, but very unhappy about service. The waiter was not courteous, didn’t wear a mask and didn’t have uniform.

The website advertises completely different from what I have seen.

Happy the crowds are back after covid and happy to support. However, but they were short staffed which made for a poor experience. Food is just adequate, not bad but nothing great. Drinks were slow to arrive, orders confused, and noise loud with bar music competing with live music outside. Other spots are a better choice for the price. Outdoor are with live music is nice- maybe just a drink would be a better option if not in a rush to relax and enjoy.

This was our 1st time. We loved Vino Bistro. The moment we walked in, the owner and hostess welcomed us with a friendly smile. We loved the idea of being able to walk up to see the different types of wines and also got educated about the diff types based on our pallet. The ambiance indoors is quaint and warm. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating with outdoor lights and heat lamps. The FOOD was amazing. The meats are grass fed which is rare to see and it taste so much better than non-grass fed meats! The desserts were amazing! We were too full so we took the desserts home but they still tasted amazing.
I highly recommend the bread pudding, the braised short ribs and filet, and the “17” Tempranillo wine!!

Had dinner on the patio on Saturday night. Scallops, salads, apps, crème brule . Everything was tasty. There was a nice bustle with many outdoor tables occupied and a band playing in the plaza. It is hard to ask for more.
