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.

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...

The Wine Bistro is delightfully quiet on Sundays for lunch, which makes it the ideal place for my family to meet up after church where we can get a big table and hear each other speaking. The food is tasty and interesting. We haven't explored the wine menu too much but it seems to be extensive and fun.

Beautiful atmosphere! It was very late on a Tuesday and it wasn’t very crowded so it was very quiet and perfect for conversation. I can imagine with the openness of the space the noise level would be a bit higher at a busier time. Service was great, the drinks generous and well made, and the Triple Chocolate Pudding, which we shared, was delicious if on the small side. Great place, I highly recommend it!

I loved the atmosphere for lunch with my friend. It was a nice quiet atmosphere, easy to have conversation. The menu was full of choices, all looked delicious. We weren't drinking, but the wine choices were plentiful. We intend to return for one of their wine tasting evenings. We'll also return for our monthly lunch together.

Wonderful experience. Our server was wonderful and wine flights were great.

Only compliant was the teeny tiny end table we were placed at. We ordered an appetizer and flatbread to share. With our wine, waters, and food, there was not enough room on the table.

Service was good, we were immediately seated. The table was somewhat small and in the main aisle, but it was fine. The food was excellent and reasonably priced.

The wait staff was very friendly and professional. Overall a great meal.

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.

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!

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.
