One of my favorites! I brought my family while visiting Columbus and they said this was the best dinner they had during the visit.

Gathered my family at the Wine Bistro n Worthington for Mother's Day. It was a nice halfway point for my brother and his family, my mother and my husband and me. We enjoyed the variety of the menu, something for everyone and moderately priced. Our service started off very attentive, then it took forever for the food to come out and the place really wasn't that busy. Desserts were underwhelming. But I have been to the Wine Bistro in Upper Arlington and have always enjoyed the ambiance, service, food, and wine. Would definitely go back.

We picked the Wine Bistro because in the past you could have a conversation and hear your partner and friends. This time they had music on so it was much harder. Still a nice experience but we may rethink it in the future. Just turn down the music a bit. If you have a nice crowd and conversations there is plenty of noise.

After several years of going to the Wine Bistro, we have noticed a steady decline in the quality of the food. This visit continued the trend to the point that we will no longer return to the restaurant. Our order of Wagyu steak salad was woefully sad. I don't believe the beef was really Wagyu, but then it was cooked to shoe leather texture so who would know. The lettuce was limp and drowned in dressing. It was supposed to have asparagus, corn and tomatoes but I only found 2 little tomatoes and maybe 4 corn kernels. The fettuccine pasta dish was decent, but served lukewarm. My mother requested coffee at the beginning of service and after asking 3 times, she finally got it towards the end of the meal. The restaurant was full and the servers were very busy. All in all a very disappointing experience. I really hope the kitchen gets it act together as the restaurant has great ambience and wonderful wines.

Wonderful place to eat and enjoy a good glass or bottle of wine. I was disappointed this time with the salmon, which was overcooked - and the rice the salmon was perched on was pressed into a circle. The presentation was nice, but the rice was over-compacted.

Nonetheless, we will return to The Wine Bistro!

The food and drinks were great, the service wasn’t good at all. It wasn’t all that busy, but we had to hunt down our server, and remind her of things we asked for. I would be more forgiving if she hadn’t been in plain sight on her phone he entire time.

We had a great experience here! It was our first time and the staff was so nice and friendly. The food was delicious. I couldn’t believe everything was made in house, even the bread! We got an awesome appetizer of baked Brie and for the main course we got a flatbread which was good and the chicken Waldorf sandwich was out of this world. The flavor combos were bomb! The manager came over to talk to us and we got to learn about the concept which was really cool. They gave us a free dessert for our first visit which was so nice! We got the bread pudding and it melted in our mouths it was delicious. Overall a great experience here! We will totally be coming back.

When we arrived it Took awhile for anyone to come to our table. Servers are all over but no one came to us. We wanted to get another glass of wine after our food but could Not get server and sat without drinks and water for more than 15 minutes. Then when we did get her attention she brought our check without us asking for it. We were going to get another glass of wine but that sealed the deal. She was not rude just very inattentive.
We do Enjoy this place and will go back but hopefully have better service next time. We only had a couple of hours to spend there since we had a sitter. Food was fine, wine was great.

I still love the Worthington Wine Bistro...usually everything goes without a glitch.
That night our server took the orders of 2 tables of people that were seated well after us. So, naturally they were eating before us! Then, it seemed that the kitchen was burning more food than they were serving and, boy, did our clothing smell of smoke the rest of the night! So, we'll chalk that up to them just having an off night as we all do on occasion!

My husband and I have been to wine bistro many times. We have always loved the food and wine, but we recently got a new server Kelsie... This has made our experience 100 times better! Previously, we had a different server, maybe 6 times in a period of 3 months, and she never remembered us, but it only took Kelsie one visit to remember us. The second time we dined with her remembered what I ate and how I said I only choose from two different dishes. Not only did she remember the two dishes I choose but also what my husband gets! She is a great server and we will be back to dine with her every time.

Highly recommended! I reserved a table for 9 for a business dinner. We were in the wine tasting room which was a very beautiful private room. We started with a beautiful cheese board and mushroom bruschetta. Everyone ordered what they wanted off the menu. Some of the dishes included the short ribs and salmon. I personally had the chop salad with salmon and it was absolutely delicious. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the taste was out of this world. Our waitress Kelsey did a fantastic job taking care of everyone and was very attentive. The manager even came by our table and made sure everyone was satisfied. I can not say enough about this experience. I know my clients, and myself, were very impressed with the restaurant and I will be going back very 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.

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.
