This was our third visit to the St. Clair Winery and Bistro and again I was not disappointed. We were quickly greeted by a friendly hostess and since we had been here before and it was nice outside, we asked for a table on the patio. She was very accommodating and allowed us to pick a table in the shade... More

I think we had a new waiter! He was so bad it was laughable! We waited a long time to be acknowledged and an even longer time for a simple order. We were not offered the bread and butter that others around us were getting. I had to practically tackle this young man to get a water refill and the... More

The family went for a birthday dinner and our party included two children. The service was very good and the food was pretty good. We chose it due to it being a nicer restaurant, location and price. It did not disappoint. It was very loud so difficult to carry on a conversation, but the 8 and 10 year old in... More

Great food, amazing atmosphere. I don't drink alcohol so I can't speak to the wine itself but my co workers raved about it. The service was a touch on the slow side, but the food was so good it made up for it.

My husband and I went here to do a wine tasting based on the brochure we grabbed at the visitor's center. Well we stood at the hostess for over 5 minutes and no one acknowledged us. So I went to the bar and asked the lady if we could do a wine tasting. She (Sophi) sat us at the bar,... More

I loved the jalapeno bacon on the BLT. I'm not a big fan of wine, but my wife loves St. Clair wine. The staff is friendly and the Bistro is very comfortable.

I ate here in a large group for lunch. And even though there were a lot of us, the service was fantastic. The food was delicious, as was the wine. And the price was great! The décor was warm and welcoming, a great place to spend a little time ordering apps and wine with friends and family. I will definitely... More
