Excellent Wine

Celebrated a friend's birthday here. The atmosphere is charming --- like a chic, cozy wine store posing as a restaurant. We dined in a private room. I love wine but am certainly not an expert. Each member of our group selected a different flight, both red and white, and we all loved every... read more

If you want a large array of wines to choose from, this is the place to go. But if you're not into wine and are only going to dine, spend your money elsewhere. The food is good, but their portions are small. I left hungry.

It looked like it was going to be a great place with the reviews and how beautiful it looked. However, the food wasn't all that great and the wine had very little taste. Our waitress seemed annoyed after we asked a few questions about the wine tastings. She also kept pushing for the pre-made flights when we kept insisting we... More

I love to go to the Wine Bistro when I am in Columbus. What a great place to be with a group or just the two of you. Many great wines to choose from and a delicious place get something that will go with your wine.

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.
