The Wine Bistro, with three Columbus, Ohio locations in Upper Arlington, Westerville 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 near state minimum 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...

Great service great food! This is a great place for intimate dinner. I wish the menu was more extensive but everything we had was great

Great food and wonderful service. Although it was a busy evening, our server was attentive but unobtrusive.

We were there for Valentines Day. Service was very good and the meal was very good. This was our second time at the Wine Bistro and would go back.

Date night with my wife for valentines day, waited a bit after seated before our server showed up, but once she did stop at our table the service was excellent. Great wine selection and reasonable prices for bottle. Food was very good, portions were not too large, which I appreciate because many restaurants serve way too much food (enough for 2 in many cases). The orange glazed salmon was excellent and my wife has the Shirmp & Risotto and loved it. We had a great evening. The place is small and cozy, will go back some afternoon for their wine flights. Worth visiting if you are looking for something new.

I ordered the "Blank and Blank" with a salad and half of a crab cake sandwich. I was impressed that the half sandwich was served on its own small bun rather than something actually cut in half. A very nice, professional touch.

Great place for wine . Service a little slow at lunch due to only one server covering seating, order taking and serving. Noisy at night.

We had been there before and made a reservation not knowing it was during Restaurant Week. Our server was outstanding, knowing a vast array of details about the wine and beer we were choosing as well as the menu. We selected the pre-arranged options available for restaurant week which offered an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $25 per person. We each had the winery salad which was very tasty. I had the Short Ribs and risotto which were amazing, and my companion had the orange glazed Salmon which was equally amazing. For dessert we got the Triple Chocolate Pot de Creme and the Caramel Apple Crisp. It was the best meal we've had in a long time. From start to finish!

It was busy due to restaurant week. Our server seemed very preoccupied and the food took a bit long to get, but over-all it was a good atmosphere and good food!

Salmon was very tasty. Short run left a lot to be desired. All in all a bit too expensive for what they're offering. Plus a corkage fee on top of the bottle charge? That's a bit absurd, especially when you've already got a 100% markup from retail price. You're in Columbus, not New York, Chicago, or LA.
