First, although it says bistro in the title, do not expect bistro food. It is more of a deli where you can purchase very high priced sandwiches that are pre-made, or cheese and sausage. Now to the wine.....the tasting was done by the winemaker's son...More

There is not cooked food. Expensive prices for cold cuts and cheese from HEB. Half sandwich for $12! They should not call this a bistro and should give up on having a menu.
