Wine Country Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We met friends last Sunday for lunch and didn't realize that it was brunch only. Everyone was okay with that, so we ordered drinks to start off. The Bloody Marys were fabulous, and we were even more impressed when the food arrived! I had the Eggs Benedict with pulled pork and almost made myself sick trying to eat it all! Everyone raved about their respective dishes, and we even ordered another round of drinks. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful, and we were even pleasantly surprised (and pleased!) to see the check was very reasonable! We are from out of town but will definitely make a point of eating there again!
We have not been to Wine Country in over a year due to a bad experience just after they opened in the new location (cold food and bad service).
We decided to give them another chance and we were not disappointed! The service was excellent. The Pasta Puttanesca was outstanding! I had shrimp on mine and my wife had chicken on hers. My friend's cedar plank salmon was also a great dish. Our food was brought out timely and hot, the portions were appropriate and the prices were reasonable.
Overall it was a great dining experience!
The gumbo was cold when it arrived so we asked if it could be heated. When returned, it was barely warm. We asked if spinach could be added to an omelet and was told they couldn't (even though spinach was available in salads). I ordered the $14 size of shrimp and grits, when it arrived it had 3 medium shrimp. I had asked for rice in place of grits, which was an additional $2. On top of that, it had no seasoning. While the servers were very friendly, they weren't very attentive. Some tables received bread at the beginning of their meals while others didn't. We did but I noticed others had to ask. This was an extremely disappointing meal. Not at all what I would expect from this restaurant.
Food was good but service was not very good. The waiter seemed off from the start, and was distracted taking our drink order. We placed an appetizer order but it never came. The waiter owned up to the mistake and said he didn't enter the table number. I ordered the Crawfish etouffe Alfredo, portion size was too small for the price. My wife ordered the filet and it was perfect!
We love eating at Wine Country and this was our first time in the new location. The meal was exceptional. However, we did miss the atmosphere of the original location. We had the duck and it was wonderful. We did miss the old way of plating the food (with the tiny cast iron skillet for the cornbread) and the petit steak, mashed potatoes, asparagus and oysters. It was all delicious. We shared a bottle of wine that was $62. We were surprised that it had been taken out of the cellar in the morning and was not stored at 55 degrees until served. We would have loved our Pinot to be a little cooler than room temperature, but it was still good. We also got the bread pudding for dessert and we loved it!
The service was excellent, our waiter was very knowledgeable, super friendly and attentive (can’t remember his name but he was from NY) and the food was amazing!!! I loved that there was a happy hour on Friday’s and wine was on the list- and half price. I loved the piano player and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this place!!!
We started out with the "Grandma's deviled eggs" with prosciutto, and they were outstanding. I was unsure about ordering Duck, but since the appetizer was so good, I decided to take the plunge. I'm so glad I did! The mean was delicious and the wine we had with dinner was great. Definitely a recommended place!
Salmon is one of my favorite foods, and while I'm not qualified as a foodie, I know when salmon is stale and when it's overcooked. So hooray for Wine Country Bistro - fresh-tasting salmon cooked just right. I'll be back, and I'll count on always finding really good salmon. Many thanks.
Waiter not with it. Food average to boring. Menu never varied. Presentation predictable, dated: like eating a stackables kids meal meant for adults. Felt like an alternative lifestyle hangout in the setting of a chateau style European fine dining restaurant: the 'bistro' part seems lost.
I got the hand cut 14 oz NY strip. It was not trimmed, slightly under cooked and seasoned. A good cut of meat though. Wife got a main entre. Petite fillet with smashed potatoes and asparagus. For $26, that was a good deal. They overcooked the first fillet so the delay earned a free dessert. Frenchman salad to start was good, with granny smith apples and candied pecans. Dessert we had cream brulle and bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream. Cream brulle was good, as was the bread pudding, but the ice cream topping stole that show. The major disappoint was I had been looking forward to the vanilla cheesecake, but the server returned and informed me they were out of it.
We had an awful time with your wine list. All the wines we asked for were not in their proper spot in your wine cellar. It would help if you could keep that updated as well as the wines you actually have as opposed to the list you are giving us. A knowledgeable wine sommelier would have been nice too.
Had it not been for the fact that the steak that my husband order got sent back not once but twice... our night would have been great. staff was friendly, wine was delicious, my cedar salmon was fantastic. my husbands rib eye was ordered as medium well, it came back WELL DONE and dry, got sent back. he had it redone only for it to come back mooing the second time. he did not want to wait even longer. I had already finished eating at this point. SO, rather than risking a third failed attempt, he went with the same thing I order, the cedar plank salmon. and they didn't even compensate or anything on the ticket for his steak, all they did was deduct 5$. pretty petty for a restaurant at this caliber. 5$ did not cover the time wasted waiting for an order to get done right. We might give wine country bistro a second chance in the future, but not anytime soon. left a bad impression unfortunately. our second anniversary dinner date at wine bistro was not what we wanted it or expected it to be.
We had a large group of friends. Unfortunately, the restaurant seemed quite short handed that evening. Our servers were excellent, but only when they were at our tables...which is not their fault. Our wait time for food and drinks was an unexpected downer.
Food and drinks were good. Just get some more staff.
We love wine country. This is our first time at the new location tho. The cheese tray is substantially smaller and my meal was not very good. My wife enjoyed hers. Our waiter was over booked and not very attentive to our table. The new location is very big and very nice. I'm hoping our next visit will be better. This was one of my favorite places to eat.
We were regulars at the old location, but this was our first time at the new location trying the new menu.
We had the fried green tomatoes to start, and didn't really enjoy them. They were visually unappealing, and the flavors just seemed to not compliment one another.
I then had the $10 caesar salad, which I failed to notice had shrimp in it. I love shrimp, and I LOVE caesar, but the two together were horrible in my opinion. The shrimp were kind of mushy and I didn't see how their addition complimented the caesar at all. I took them all off and the caesar was pretty good afterwards.
We were a little concerned going into the entrees, but they were so good that we completely forgot about the starters. I had the short ribs, and they were delicious. I would come back again just to have it. My wife had the southern ramen, and it was as delicious as it was creative. We've never seen anything like it, but it sure was good.
We'll definitely be back, but we'll probably skip the green tomatoes and caesar next time.
Restaurant was listed as elegant casual. I would lean more towards elegant than casual. The food was great, but the service was not optimal. There were some shining moments, but I believe there was only one server working the entire room that we were located. That was off to me because my group was large itself. I was under the impression that larger groups were usually give at least two servers. However, the overall atmosphere was great and I wouldn't mind visiting again in the future.
