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,

I discovered this place on a business trip. I was blown away by the incredible food, atmosphere, and great wine selection. We were served promptly and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. What a great place to spend an evening! I am already planning a return trip!

This is a wonderful after work and early evening meeting place with great apps and a limited menu. However the atmosphere is wonderful, and you will never be alone. Sit at the 30-foot bar or any of several seating options. Select your wine from the well stocked shelves or sample flights. All in all, this is a great place to... More

This cozy eatery/wine shoppe was a delightful place to lunch with a friend and get caught up on our respective lives. The small plates menu is exceptional - so much so that a substantial braised veal meatball and a cup of rustic tomato basil bisque were sufficiently satisfying for a noon meal. The quiet ambience was very conducive to conversation,... More

Oh so many wine choices from inexpensive to extravagant! The small plates are generous for two and tastings are encouraged to find the perfect vino. Enjoy the establishment's social events like Wineology classes. Lots of wine insight and LOTS of new friends. A good time was had by all.
