My wife and I were celebrating our 2nd year wedding anniversary and wanted to try a place we'd never been to before. Everything was on point for us, from the delicious orange marmalade on the cheese board to our blonde brownie dessert after our pasta dishes. We will be back soon.
Portions are too small but food is great! Ambiance is great too!
Perfect for date night and lucky that it was restaurant week. We added two wine flights and the beautiful Antipasto Board. Perfect Start to an amazing meal. We had a lovely time.
We have had good experiences in the past, but this was not one of them. The food was fair at best. The service was slow with two different wait staff. I ordered a drink and after 30 minutes I told the waitress to not bother bringing it. She brought it anyway 10 minutes later and seemed confused when I said to take it away. She came back with it saying there would be no charge, but we had already finished our meal.
Our previous experiences were so good that we will most likely return, but were were disappointed.
Great deal for restaurant week!
The food and drinks were good, though the staff was not only rude to us but rude to each other. Toward the end of our meal, the hostess came over and told us that there was a party with a reservation waiting for our table and asked if we could hurry up and finish. We hadn’t seen our server in quite some time and were waiting to order dessert. The server was upset with the hostess for trying to push us out, but continued to rush us through dessert and cashing out anyways. We had only been there for an hour and 20 minutes and had ordered the three-course restaurant week meal, so it’s not like we were overstaying our welcome. Probably won’t go back.
We went there for restaurant week to try it out and it was amazing. The food was incredible.
Lily was wonderful, really enjoyed our time at the wine bistro!!!!
It was great and the service was fantastic! Recommend this for a relaxed atmosphere.
Dinner was great and service was excellent
Food was cold and service was pretty bad. I was disappointed because I had been there before and enjoyed the experience, but yesterday’s experience was disappointing
We were not rushed and enjoyed a leisurely visit over lunch. Purchased wine on the no corkage fee special.
Nice ambience and we enjoyed our food.
Great spot to relax and enjoy good food and wine and the service is great!
Beautiful evening for outdoor dinning. The waiter was quite pleasant and food delicious. Thank heavens we did not have evening plans. The service was extremely slow . I know that this is a reflection of workers being paid more to not work. This is very sad and we commend those who are working. We will be back and hopefully before long we will see more people returning to the workforce.
Server was vey pleasant but inexperienced. Entrees were delivered just after we received salads. Everything else was very nice
My first visit. Tip from a coworker. Lily was our server and the bartender. She did a great job. Made us feel like this was our 100th visit. We will be back.
Poorly trained wait staff and no manager on the floor leads to a less than desirable dining experience. Too bad, could be a gem in UA.
The food was delicious but the food took a long to receive. About 45 minutes.
We were 5 minutes early and were seated. We sat there for 15 mins and a hostess came by and said we are short staffed so hopefully someone can eventually be over to help you. They were not overly busy but that statement after we already sat there 15 mins with out being spoken to did not sit well with us. We waited another 5-8mins and no one came to take our order so we got up and left.
I understand if they are short staffed it happens but the statement made to us that maybe eventually someone would be by to take our order just wasn't very professional.
We use to go to the Wine Bistro all of the time and I had my bridal shower there but not sure we will go back again.
Much better than on 23
Very quaint. A lot of menu options. Food is delicious. Would definitely go back again.
Lilly is absolutely amazing! She is so kind and super fun to have as a server! We love sitting with her when we come in! She’s the best!!!
We have a group of 7 people in the private room. It was great service and wonderful food.
I’m always surprised this place is not more popular. I understand it’s expensive but the food is amazing. Service was quick and we had a party of 10. We will definitely be back.
Nice patio. Friendly service. Great selection of wine. The food was better than expected, I find myself saying that every time I come here. The food did take around 40-45 minutes to come out but the server was apologetic and the food was worth the wait. I understand the current situation and that things happen so it wasn’t a big deal.
Food and wine were outstanding! Great atmosphere. Had a lot of fun!
Was very impressed with the decor. Very nice wine selection Great service
LOVED this restaurant - not a huge selection, but all was fabulous! Our new favorite!
In Columbus for The Cultivate Show; met up with best friend for wine and dinner. Lily was Amazing! Attentive, Professional and Took Great Care of Us! 👍👍
Good food, personable service, nice ambiance. The usual for the Upper Arlington location! Just wish there was more parking - didn’t even have a handicapped spot available (we’re better off if we have one). But otherwise, we had a nice, relaxing evening out!
We always like the Wine Bristro. Friendly, nice patio but street noice can be a distraction. But the flowers and music keep all things good! Always solid food, a little pricey, but we keep coming back :-). The inside is very cool decor, but have not been inside since Covid hit. I am sure it is still nice.
Great service, great food, great wine - all at a fair price!
Everything was fantastic till we got home with our desserts. He ordered Caramel Apple Crisp to go and when we got home, he found that they had forgotten his ice cream! There was no way we were going all the way back, but that kind of thing shouldn’t happen.
Very good food and wine. Always love coming here and recommend this location to all of our friends!
Fun evening at the Wine Bistro as always, good food, good wine and a good atmosphere for good conversation. Love to sit on the patio even in a light rain as the umbrellas are water proof!
Good food at a decent price. Lunch menu offers a nice variety of soups, salads and sandwiches.
Great food, I loved the fact I was able to shelf-pick out our wine selection for the evening. The server was very knowledgeable and gave us the recommendation of the short ribs: excellent choice! He also informed us of the restaurant’s sister restaurant in the area “Napa”, and I will definitely check them out in regards to our experience at The Wine Bistro. I was extremely grateful they had availability on the holiday (Father’s Day), and with our split decision schedule, we were able to find a reservation on such short notice! I will definitely be back again! Thank you!
Food is outstanding. Different but delicious. This is a good special occasion place.
Great experience and service. Food and wine are always great! Thank you.
Great service. Attentive. Entrees were outstanding because they were well thought out and presented.
