The Wine Bistro - Westerville 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...

We frequent the Wine Bistro and always enjoy. This time our server was a bit "crusty" and impatient; might have been having a bad night. Otherwise all good.

Flatbreads were over cooked and chicken sandwich was burnt. The waitress brought our bills without asking if we wanted anything else(I would have had another glass of wine) and she totally screwed up both of our bills.

Food was smaller portions than the many times I have been there before but with no reduction in price. Quality wasn’t as usual. Our waitress was great but after we had been there for a while, another waitress asked us to move to the casual seating area so our table could be used for someone else. I do understand this need but there were still many tables open. This waitress was just rude. Not sure if I will return anytime soon.

I enjoyed the afternoon with a few business clients here. Service was great as was the food. The soup of the day was out of this world and the crab cakes are a must!

Waited longer than should be for wine to arrive.
Server had to be reminded to bring wine chiller.

Food was very good!, as is usually the case.
Enjoyed our evening.

Service was very good, all the way from the hostess to the wait staff. Food was lack luster, we had the Antipasto platter to start... the greens in the middle were not dressed - The Roasted garlic was not roasted enough and it was cool not warm, and the Braised Veal Meatball which tasted great but seemed to be over cooked as it lacked texture and was mush.

As an entre we shared the Smoked Chicken Tortellini, which lacked flavor.

So, really not that great from a food standpoint, but the wine was v/ good and service was great. :)

This plan came highly recommended. We are non-drinkers but the menu looked good so we decided to give it a try. Our app (lettuce wraps) was only lukewarm when we received it. The portion was tiny in comparison to other places. Main course was better but only just OK. Again, portions were small.
Our server was disinterested at best. I am not sure that we are the target demographic for this place. If I was drinking wine, I probably would be less concerned about the food.

Made a reservation and invited another couple for dinner. Last time, we had a good experience, but this was not a great experience. Disappointed. Took an hour to get our salads, soup was cold, and my arugula prosciutto flatbread was dumping oil in my lap and all over the table...so soggy. Super disappointed with our experience. I thought making a reservation days in advance would be of benefit, but apparently not. I'll give it another chance, but hesitant to take friends there.

Great food and wine. The popcorn appetizers are a must. Flatbreads are large and scrumptious. The meatball is amazing. The special Shrimp and Chrorizo Mac n Cheese was delicious. Unfortunately service was a bit lacking. Yes, it was busy on a Friday night but our table felt ignored. After our order was taken we never saw our server again until we were done eating (someone else delivered our food). During which a wine request had been forgotten, all 4 of us were out of all beverages and had never been checked on by anyone. I love this place but sometimes service is not quite up to par so be prepared.

I have been to this Wine Bistro multiple times. Always great service. Great wine. And great food. This time the food was a little off. Flatbreads were a bit toasted. But all other meals in our party of 8 were wonderful.
