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...

It took too long for our server to come back to us once we were seated. A restaurant of this caliber should quickly provide water and offer bread to start. Once the water was provided, we didn’t see our server again for a while so I had to flag someone else to get a water refill. When our food finally arrived, my wife’s risotto was crunchy and tasteless. Her short ribs were fine, but some of her carrots were undercooked. Wasn’t impressed with our first dinner experience at the Bistro.

Amy was a fantastic server even tho she was the ONLY server available and we had a large group there for a holiday luncheon. She was remarkable and took care of us professionally and promptly. The party room is a delight and beautifully decorated for the holidays! Thanks so much!

As always, Dejan and his team offer and outstanding dining experience. We were celebrating my birthday and everything was perfect. I highly recommend the wine bistro whether it’s for lunch or a business meeting, an evening out. Excellent menu with interesting choices. And the wine! They offer selections from Kamnik Winery which is an added treat. This is one of Columbus’ gems.

It was very good, But, it was too noisy. Would like to meet friends there, but we want to be able to talk and hear each other. We'll try lunch. Lots of interesting sounding itemss, especially the desserts, but couldn't have one after the super rich entrée.
The cheese flat bread plate was very rich (but good). It would be better as an appetizer so one would have just a little. Took more than half home, and my husband says it upsets his stomach. At least warn people. The chicken was spicy, much to my husbands surprise I could not have eaten it. Again, warn people. Have only eaten there once, so can't comment on many of the items above.
Our server was very helpful and personable.

I would/will return to the Wine Bistro for lunch or dinner again. I live in Clayton Ohio and it took me almost an 1 1/2 to get there but it was well worth it. The food was creative and delicious along with a wonderful server that was very informative and very attentive. As soon as you walk in the place you feel comfortable and glad you came!!

We were at a standard table rather than a high top. Great service from our server. Food was good. Flatbread was delayed due to a kitchen problem and comped. Not very crowded so noise level was minimal. Would definitely recommend

We have always gone to the Westerville location of the Wine Bistro and have had very good food. Regrettably, the Worthington location was not as good. The same cool ambiance is there. But the food was lackluster. The steak salad was bland as the blue cheese dressing had no punch. They were out of our favorite Key West lime pie. My partners’ salmon was good. Just not a knockout. Hopefully, this was just an off night.

The hostess couldn’t find our reservation so instead of being places at a traditional four top table, we were seated at a very narrow high top style table located right by the bar. This was less than ideal with an infant in a high chair.

We had a wonderful meal and delicious wine on Sat night. While the menu wasn’t huge, it had enough variety to make everyone happy. The salads that started the meal were a nice size and perfectly dressed; our entrees were hot and yummy. The wine selection is excellent and we will definitely return!

We love the small plates / appetizers on date night and The Wine Bistro has a great menu for this type of dining. We enjoyed a quiet evening together for our anniversary and highly recommend visiting early in the week to take advantage of 'no corkage fee' night.

We loved Sam.
A little concern overhearing some of the other servers.
Not as professional as I would have liked.

Sam was fun and very attentive.
No complaints with her service or attitude.

I cannot day the same for another employee.
