The Wine Bistro, with three Columbus, Ohio locations in Upper Arlington, 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...

Wonderful food service and experience!

Super friendly staff! We accidentally stayed a few minutes past close and they were more than gracious about it. They even packaged up a dessert to go for us. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. 10/10, would recommend!

I usually love this place, but tonight was a disappointment. Food was not as good as usual. My husband’s seat was wet. Our table was jammed next to a very loud table of people. And there was constant loud noise coming from the kitchen. Just surprised.

We enjoyed our visit as usual - it's one of our favorite easy spots to relax and enjoy reliably great food & service, in a smart casual atmosphere. The short ribs were everything I had hoped they'd be - tender and delicious. The creme brulee was excellent too- so happy they have it on the menu. We ordered a flatbread with the gluten free crust, and while I'm glad they offer a gluten-free option, they used to have a better, thinner gluten-free crust that I preferred.

My husband likes it because you can have a conversation and not have to yell.

The atmosphere was very nice. I liked the wines displayed for sale surrounding the restaurant. However, 3 out of 4 in our party ordered the Salmon. In every case it was way overcooked. One of us ordered the Beef Stroganoff and it came out cold, which had to be sent back and warmed up. The quality of food was very good, but the chef was off the mark on cooking. We also ordered a cheese plate before dinner and it was excellent.

The overall experience was okay. This is not a place I would recommend for a nice dinner. The food was good, nothing special. It wasn’t bad, but I expected more for the price. They had an okay wine selection, but nothing close to what they should have had for calling themselves a wine bistro. Our server was terrible; she was inattentive and rather rude. This was most likely because over half our party were not wine drinkers and only ordered their meal. If you are looking for somewhere with a mediocre wine selection and mediocre food then this would be the place for you.

The restaurant week deal was a terrific value. But the food was so good that we’ll definitely go back any time of the year! The veal meatball was incredible, and we also quite enjoyed the beef short ribs and lobster/shrimp fettuccine. Obviously an extensive wine selection, and a solid handful of craft beers too (cans/bottles).

YOU NEED MUSIC!!! Loud conversation heard from all directions! Atmosphere is 50% along with food!
