 (Denver)·Dined on December 2, 2017

This was our second visit and we returned because we totally enjoyed our first visit. Our second visit was spoiled by bad service. Unless we flagged our waiter, he rarely came by our table. Even when we asked, it was 50/50 whether we received what we requested ie more water, coffee, dessert menu, the bill etc

We just moved to Castle Rock and have been a little disappointed with the dining scene - until we went to VistaVino. We loved it! The food was fantastic and we caught the half price bottle of wine night, so we splurged on a really nice Pinot Noir. The staff and owners were super friendly. We will definitely be back often.

Took two of our friends from Denver here for dinner after walking Garden of the Gods. Arrived in time for happy hour so enjoyed $5 wine by the glass then a bottle if Malbec blend and had the most amazing food! Delicious pear pouches, grilled caesar salad, pear arugula salad, flatbread, bolognese, carbonara and wine. We loved everything and were so delighted by our visit. Can’t wait to come back! Thank you for making such amazing dishes!!!

This was our second time at Vista Vino and it is always worth the wait! We live out of state and we planned this dinner and made reservations two months in advance because we didn’t want to miss out. The staff is friendly and fantastic, the owner is lovely, and the menu/food is excellent!

Really impressed and so happy to find a restaurant of this caliber in Castle Rock. The food was amazing quality and the restaurant was cozier than photos looked. Meatballs, mussels, Bibb lettuce, and purse dish were all delicious.

Janine and Michael (owners and chef) have the front end and the back end (kitchen) down to a science! Everything from a friendly greeting upon arrival to a wonderful set of choices on the menu. Michael prepares everything with a expert and deft touch on seasonings and presentation. Janine is a wonderful resource if you need help to navigate the wine list although the "foodies" that this couple attracts do well on their own. It is obvious why they have such a loyal fan base once you dine here! Why would anyone go to a chain restaurant when there are such wonderful choices like VIsta Vino?

Great place in Castle Rock. Locally run with an artisan flare. Food is fantastic, all home-made, delicious, fresh and a nice menu selection. I was pleasantly surprised by the wine menu as many were small batch wineries and the owner takes pride in the wine list. Service is great - we will certainly be back. We usually travel to Denver for nice dinners. VistaVino stacks up with any of them. Highly recommend.

Service was excellent, food was good. I had the grilled vegetable stack with marinara sauce and chicken. Delicious. Saw a cheese plate walk by, should've ordered that for an appetizer, looked wonderful. Would definitely come here again.

We love Vista Vino as a place to go as a couple or with a group and having lots of small plates, always new and different treats. The crispy portabello was amazing. And then add the marscapone cheesecake, great night.

When we first arrived the waiter brought out some warm bread with a bean dip to replace the butter. This dip had way too much Garlic, glad I asked for butter.
I had the Lamb Chops and my companion had the Shrimp. Both dishes had too much seasoning, specifically pepper, overwhelming the flavor of the dishes which I am sure were probable great.
We have eaten here before and did not experience these issues.

Ordered 4 different entrees. The veggie stack mushroom had dirt still on the portabello. Affected the taste quite a bit. The carbonara was very rich and good. The other entrees were ok. Not sure i would return. Quality vs price - not good quality for the price.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on August 25, 2017

VistaVino was recorded by a friend, and WOW! it was a great recommendation! Their happy hour prices are the same menu as later in the evening (after 6:00), just lower priced. The WHOLE menu. The burrata appetizer was fresh, light and perfect for a summer evening on their patio. We also had the cheese platter, which I'd highly recommend. The menu changes regularly to take advantage of fresh local ingredients, so these may or may not be available on our next visit. For dinner, we each had the lamb chop, which though it was over salted, worked okay along with the cauliflower puree. The puree, by the way, was the best cauliflower puree I have ever had. It was light, tasty and a perfect compliment to the heavily seasoned lamb. They have a decent wine list, but honestly, the wines by the glass are excellent, and with happy hour prices are a steal!

My friends from high school had flown in to visit so I HAD to take them to our favorite spot! Vista Vino did not disappoint; everyone loved the restaurant and (of course) their food.

The wait staff made us all feel special - they recognized me - and when the entrees arrived everybody was impressed and dug in.

I forgot to mention the pear marscapone purses... that app is just amazing so we shared an order - they didn't last long.

I was looking for a new spot for a special celebration and decided to try VistaVino. So glad I did. From the appetizers to the entrees to a shared dessert we were delighted by each course. Both of us decided that we would eagerly look forward to a return visit. Only thing I would comment on was that it can be a little loud. Fortunately we had a table near a window corner where it was a little less intrusive.
If you've never been, try it!
