This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - The Wine Bistro, with four Columbus, Ohio locations in Upper Arlington, Westerville, Clintonville and Worthington, offers an exciting array of well-curated wines and a list of select craft beers. The menu features light and filling appetizers & small plates, soups, salads, flatbreads and entrees offered every day of the week for lunch and dinner. We open at 11:00 AM Mon-Sat and at Noon on Sunday.
Choose a table for two, a relaxed seat in the soft seating area, gather a group at one of the communal tables or in the private tasting room. Shop for wine priced at retail or pay a small corkage fee (waived on Mondays & Tuesdays) to enjoy your bottle in-house.
We look forward to exploring great wine and food with you soon...

Hors d'oeuvre offered on the menu was not available due to "transition". Baked brie was pretty good. Entrees were rudely slammed onto the table by server. Wine ordered from the menu was indifferent but inexpensive. Entrees were uninspired. The table top itself was sticky.

Such a great experience! Fabulous wine and food. Server Craig was very knowledgeable and made our evening great. Would highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

This was our favorite of the Wine Bistros, diet enough for conversation and congeniality to take place with good service, a pleasant ambiance, and a quite a varied wine selection. It had become a regular stop for us and our friends, so we will miss it. The other Wine Bistro we'd tried was not so congenial, so we're looking for other venues.

We went following daughter's graduation. We were seated right at our reservation time and service was excellent. The menu isn't huge but offers something for everyone. Wine selections were good and affordable. Our entrees were all delicious, but the fondue appetizer was a bit lackluster. Overall it was a great experience and I will return.

Food and service were great, however the noise level was not. We were on a date and were seated at a small table between 2 larger groups and could hardly hear each other talking. It was not the atmosphere/evening we were looking for to enjoy our bottle of wine.

Food is always delicious and the hostess very accommodating. And our server "Marc Anthony" was fabulous. Explained menu and suggested wines, service was great. Will visit again and will ask for "Marc" for sure.

Usually the food is good, this time mine was just OK.
There was way too much garlic and it blew out my taste buds and ruined the rest of my meal and evening. BTW, this is a meal I get quite often at The Wine Bistro so I know whereof I speak.
Also, there are bread plates on every table but you always have to ask for the bread.
I still enjoy the place and will go back. :-)

Todd the bartender was attentive and prompt. The food was good and the drinks were better.

Wonderful experience. Sat on the patio and did a few flights of red wine. Snacked on a meat and cheese appetizer. Highly recommend.

Always enjoy lunch at the bistro. The food is good and the service friendly and efficient. As a bistro, the limited menu generally dictates how often we go, but everything is delicious.

My wife and I went for wine and dessert, so we cannot comment on the main menu, but the atmosphere was great for an evening together without the kids so we could talk and enjoy time together sipping on wine. Unlike some places their "by the glass" wine selection offered a large selection. Although we didn't have anything on the main menu, the the food at the surrounding tables looked very good. This was a great find.

Excellent service! Great food! My wife and I went for our date night (we don't get many). We had recently had multiple bad service experiences elsewhere, so this was a welcome change.

Our group of 4 ladies have been here several times and always enjoy this restaurant. There is a good wine list, and two of us enjoyed a flight of red wines. One friend ordered the Mediterranean popcorn appetizer to share with our party. Two of us ordered a mixed greens salad. I added the caramelized salmon to the salad and enjoyed every bite! One of the ladies always orders an appetizer meatball to accompany her salad. We had good service from the wait staff and plan to return again soon.
