Wine bottles line the walls, as in a library. Choose one, have it chilled for you, then enjoy. Menu was quite innovative. The crab cakes and veal meatball were outstanding.

This was my 1st visit to the Wine Bistro, I met 3 of my old college roommates for wine and dinner. I liked the decor and atmosphere, and was surprised with the menu, more selection and variety than I expected. The wine selection was very good, the service was very good and my meal was very good. I would recommend... More

Was in from out of town for two nights and by myself. I chose this place due to the proximity of my hotel and was extremely happy with my choice and in fact I was so pleased I went back the second night. I was able to sit out outside on the patio both nights which was a great area.... More

I had beef tips with risotto and carrots. The beef melted in my mouth. The risotto had a wonderful depth of flavor. Even the carrots were good & I don't like carrots! The service was spectacular & the atmosphere great! I will go back soon! I highly recommend dining here.

We went with a large group for a wine tasting event and it was superb. They did an excellent job of paring the delicious wines with great little plates. They were not skimpy on the tastes either. When I drank my taste, someone gave me more. Really liked the herb popcorn.

This is actually my 2nd dining experience at a Wine Bistro in Columbus (the other was in UA) and unfortunately, it was even less impressive than the 1st. We made reservations for a party of 6 on a Saturday night... and here's how the evening unfolded... Service (D+) - this rating includes not only our server, but overall attentiveness of... More

I recently attended a private event for a coworker who recently retired from the medical field. This was my first time visiting the Private Reserve room. The is an excellent place for any type of event. I would imagine the room would comfortably hold up to about 50 people. The room is decorated in a beautiful Rustic Tuscan theme and... More

As indicated by the name, it's a place for wine drinkers. Has a wide selection of wines and dishes to compliment the wines. Service was great and our server was knowledgable of wines without being pretentious. The place was hopping which was a nice change from most wine bars which can be boring and mundane!

this is another Columbus chain, nice newer location. I will preface that I went for lunch and did not have wine. Our table ordered flat breads (good) and salads (average). Again, moderate prices, good service and friendly staff, I'd still rather pay a few dollars more for more inspired dining,
