About

Wine-Ohs has two casual spaces that will provide you with a unique experience whether you visit one or both of them. Wine-Ohs Bistro is a casual wine bar with food that suits our award winning wine list . Our menu changes seasonally. We have a full bar selection and feature local and international beers. Downstairs, you'll find the Cellar, our live music venue, which has live music five nights a week. It may be a little hard to find but that gives it a speakeasy vibe reminiscent of clubs in New York or Chicago. To get to the Cellar, enter through the alley door. Please note we do not take reservations in the Cellar -- seating is first come, first serve. Become one of the insiders who find themselves saying the first time they enter the Cellar 'I had no idea this was here!' Then tell your friends. . .

My first time at Wine Ohs and would definitely go back. Small and cozy upstairs with the option of heading into the larger Cellar for live music. Great food and wine cjoices.

I love this restuarant. I think it is one of the "coolest" vibes out there. I recommend this place to everyone I know.

I have had nothing but great food and service there in the past. My recent experience on Valentines Day was not up to that standard, and I felt unsatisfied.

HOWEVER, I will be back in hopes that this was just an outlier from my normal visits as I love this place.

Went on Valentine's Day and the kitchen must've been overwhelmed! Waited 2 hours for our appetizers to arrive...
Our server was great though... gave us a free round of drinks and told us the mains were on the house and kept on checking on us.
The ambience and live music down at the cellar were wonderful! The food wasn't bad either. Highly recommend the pork belly! Would come here again but definitely not on a special occasion night such as Valentine's Day..

Even though they were short staffed, our server Matt or 'Macklemore' was on top of his game and did an amazing job. I'll definitely come back again!

We were very excited to celebrate Valentines at this restaurant. I must say the SERVICE was very disappointing. It took 2 hours to receive our meal! We arrived at 6:30 and ordered by 6:45. Our steak was served at 8:45pm! The waitress apologized but pretty much that was it. It is too bad as the food when it did finally arrive was delicious.

We heard great things about this place but our experience was disappointing. Food was horrible. Service was horrible. If your going to sell wine then teach the staff how to open the bottle. Also disappointing to watch the band setup and do sound check for an hour, should that not be done a head of time? Will not be returning.

The service was great. The food was terrible. My steak was rubbery on the top. Not medium rare in the middle. My significant other bison burger was over cooked and extremely dry. The bun was almost like it was stale then toasted. Horrible food



Service was great. The gentleman attending to us was polite well spoken. Always checked on us.

Always a positive experience. Cozy, quaint atmosphere great for conversation over a tasty dinner. There are gluten free options available but you have to ask, they are not highlighted on the menu. Service is attentive and friendly.

Food and wine were both good.
Considering how tiny this place is, you would assume that the service should be fantastic since the servers would have very few tables to tend to. Unfortunately this was not the case and I was a little disappointed with our service. The pork was good, large portion size. Would go back for the food and hope the service was better.

This restaurant is a hidden gem in downtown. Ended up there when our usual business meal spot was full. This has become the new favorite for everyone. Great prices, amazing meals and good service.

We had lunch at Wine-Ohs Bistro recently and were pleasantly surprised. Although this restaurant is small and off the beaten track, they have just re-vamped their menu and it definitely adds to the dining experience. I had the open face chicken, avocado, brie and cranberry sandwich with the soup of the day (fresh corn). I would definitely order it again.

Dinner was lovely. Band was great, but set just a little loud for that time of evening. Our meals took a little long to come out, but they were well worth the wait. Our waiter was awesome!

Have been here once before and the experience and good was much better. Was not asked how I'd like my steak; marinated veggies were missing from the board and my husband burger was over cooked. The wine was not chilled and the suggested replacement was $25 a bottle more

Had a fantastic time at Wine-Oh's! The service was excellent and the wine menu was exciting to try. My only wish is that the size of the meal was just a bit bigger. The live music venue downstairs was fantastic and had a great atmosphere. I will definitely be back.

Wine-Ohs is a nice little establishment upstairs with classy decor and a vibe that can suit either a girls night out or romantic date. Haven't been downstairs (or upstairs, for that matter) when music/live bands are playing yet. The food is tasty (we ate tapas style) and the service is great. The wine list is pretty good and the prices range. I'll be back :)
