Had a great meal at The Wine Bistro for NYE. Good menu for sharing and would definitely recommend getting the Mediterranean popcorn and the Juliette flatbread. The best part of the meal was our server Adrian who was fun and attentive but didn’t intrude. Would recommend and will be back.

We went on New Years Eve and this understandably was a busy night. However, everyone who waited on us were sure to tell us how busy and overwhelming the night was. Though the restaurant did not feel busy at all. The tables were full, but there was not a wait, and it was not loud or frantic. We sat at our table for about 5 minutes before being offered drinks. We chose water and to wait for our friends to order wine. Our friends arrived a few minutes later, but we waited 20 minutes after they arrived for anyone to come back and get our order. Another 15 went by before we got our wine (from someone other than our waitress), and another 5-10 minutes went by until she took our dinner order. We waited at least 40 minutes for our food. The waitress had checked after we ordered about onions on my friends salad. She originally had ordered no onions and confirmed no onions and then was served a salad with onions and the wrong dressing. Of our 3 hot plates, 1 was hot. The other two were cold and had clearly say for awhile. We were given one bill at the end for the four of us and the waitress offered to split it up but she would have to find someone who knew how. We chose not to wait and just sort it out later. We arrived at the restaurant at 645 and did not leave until 915. It was not enjoyable night and the food was not worth the cost whatsoever. We won’t be back.

Had not specifically visited the North High Street location but others in the area. Loved this spot... Quiet, darkly-lit, cozy space - Great for friends get-togethers, small groups or business dinners in their lovely special dining room space. Great menu & lots of advice from the staff on tastings and pairings.. Loved it

It was great overall because of the friends I was with. We had the restaurant almost completely to ourselves, that’s why it was hard to understand why the service wasn’t that great! Server was very nice just all over the place and wasn’t very helpful.

The server did not bring our soup or salad. He never gave us refills or asked us if we wanted more drinks. We had to ask another server for our bill because our waiter was nowhere to be found. It was my first time there. Awful service for what was only decent food, will not return.

The food was decent. They have a limited bar and beer menu. The wine variety is outstanding . We went on an OSU evening game so the restaurant was not crowded. Nice area to sit outside and dine. Waitress was very good and friendly.

Very nice selection of wines, sold at retail Mondays and Tuesday, and with a modest corkage other days. The manager really knows wines and helped us make a great selection; their wait staff is also quite helpful. Nice selection of small plates, a few regular dishes, and great bread pudding

Excellent restaurant with innovative cuisine. The 3 types of fondue presented in individual bowls was outstanding. Generous portions and high quality ingredients. Extensive wine list and reasonably priced.
Décor was cozy and relaxing, comfortable seats and good lighting.
Definitely will go back.

Our Sunday lunch was fantastic. We brought our elderly parents from FLORIDA to the WINE BISTRO as we knew the food would be good and the patio would be the perfect place. We were the only ones eating out there! our waiter took such good care of us. They were impressed with the chicken salad and the service. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you!

It's restaurant week and I am on vacation. I reviewed all of the menus and The Wine Bistro had something in each course that I knew I would enjoy. My husband tried two of the craft beers, got the veal meatball, shrimp with citrus risotto, and key lime pie. I got the rustic tomato bisque, the short braised rib with carrots, and mushroom risotto,and the bourbon pecan bread pudding. I have posted my pictures on Facebook and gave me y review on Yelp. I enjoyed my experience at The Wine Bistro more than I did at The Refectory.

Was able to sit outside. Even with being close to the main road (23) it was not really nosy. Good choices. Wine a little expensive for the amount served. Need larger bowl wine glasses to serve red wine.
