New summer Salmon Salad was delicious. We asked if we could have bread and later noticed a $2 charge...ordered "The House Chardonnay"($14) and it was more expensive than some of the wines on the menu...other than those two things we have now learned to ask if bread is included and the price of the house wine. We enjoy eating there about once a month with friends and out of town guests. We love the menu and the atmosphere.

Always enjoy the Bistro. The food and service is always top notch for a moderately priced venue. We enjoy the baked brie appetizer and the short ribs.

We had a great time at the Wine Bistro. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. We had the seasonal fried green tomatoes and they were out of bread pudding so we had the brownie instead and it was amazing.

We love the Wine Bistro in Worthington! Tonight was no exception...we enjoyed the charcuterie board very much, and I loved the meatball appetizer. My date had the braised short ribs which he always raves about, served with risotto. Tonight the beef was a bit fatty, which was disappointing, but we’d still order them again. It’s a great dish. Love that the patio is open now, we’ll def be back soon for that!

I went there to meet three girlfriends for a Girls Night Out. We were not disappointed! We had patio seating and it was a beautiful Spring night and our server was exceptionally good! I like the fact that it was adults. Loved it! We will come again!...

Service and food is never consistent, good or fair. But never bad. Service is usually slow and staff seems poorly trained in Service 101. I still like the place and am always hoping for it to improve.
BTW...I presume you offer the noise level choice as Energetic because Loud would be a negative. You should offer Loud...because it is.
Still surprised they closed the Clintonville location.

Date night so not in a hurry. Not crowded but 80%full. Enjoyed two wine flights, a white and then a red. All six wines were good. We split the baked cheese which was excellent and then split a salad and a flatbread. Great evening.

Good food, super service and excellent value. It's a wine store plus a reasonable sized small and full plate menu. Servers know their wine... You can get their by the glass wines or any bottle in the store at retail plus small corkage fee. On Mondays and Tuesdays there's no corkage

Had a business meeting there for 7 of us and they handled us perfectly! Put us in the perfect location and attended to us greatly. Food was great! Had gluten free options. Wait staff was on top of it. We will definitely be back for other meetings. Thanks!

This place is awesome. Great staff. Manager went out of his way to find some unique wines for my group to enjoy. Greta is probably the best server I have ever had. She makes you feel welcome and you can tell she enjoys her work. Rare to find now a days. The food is wonderful and fresh. Truly a fabulous experience at a fraction of the cost of similar establishments I have visited. Nice job everyone.

Enjoy the atmosphere, nice wine selection especially from Italy and Spain, at reasonable prices. In the cooler months get a table away from the front door, it can be fairly chilly.

Our experience was not good. The server was friendly but forgot to order our appetizer, didn’t order me the entree I requested, and made mistakes on our bill.
My salmon ( I requested a grilled vegetable salad with salmon but got lettuce and tomato with salmon) was over cooked and dry. My husbands risotto was cold.

We were there almost three hours due to extremely long waits for everything.

We were told that a kitchen employee had cut himself, causing problems. Hopefully that person is ok, but I won't be rushing back.

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.

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).
