Great if you are trying to impress someone new to the wine world for a date. Great selections. Seems popular with late 20's to early 40's range. Kinda pretentious. If you are going to just try wine and a quick bite, this is your place. If you are actually going for a real meal, overpriced and chances are your man... More

Fun little wine bar with happy hour hors d’oeuvres and a very large wine selection. Buy wine to go or just pay an $8 corkage fee and enjoy it with your meal.

The location is central right on the main strip. The food was fantastic unfortunately, serving sizes are small although there were servers dishing up the meats. If you are planning and event there make sure order by 5-10 people. I ordered for 41 with 2 children and three people didn't attend but still didn't have enough short ribs but plenty... More

My daughters and I went for a getaway weekend and found this fabulous wine tasting shop. Atmosphere was so relaxing and we had a perfect view of the bottling area. You can also buy a ticket to bottle your own wines. The food platters we ordered were amazing. What a great afternoon!

Four of us ate lunch here and enjoyed ourselves. The flatbreads were excellent with lots of topping and flavor. Service was provided by an efficient and friendly server named Jennifer. One of our party had a $13 glass of wine, but even at that, I found the check of almost $80, including tip, quite expensive for flatbreads with soup or... More

My dance troupe usually stops at a restaurant after a performance and I've now been in their back room twice. Well appointed room that fits around 10 easily, great decor. We were a bit too early for a full meal, but those sharing a bottle of wine (great choice is available) and appetizers/soup/salad, fully enjoyed their food. The waitstaff was... More

The restaurant has been designed and decorated by a genius. The staff is friendly, unobtrusive, efficient and professional. The food was superb. We were a group with some of us who hasn't seen each other in 40+ years, we drank and ate and talked and never once did we feel hurried. By the way, the wine selection was excellent. When... More

This was my second time at the Bistro. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere and decor is outstanding, very low key. Food portions are just the right size , of course the wine by the glass selections offer a nice variety.

We were seated at 5:50PM and did not have a waitress show up at our table until 6:10PM. At that time the waitress told us happy hour was over as it ended at 6PM. We complained and the manager came over and told us we could order from the happy hour menu and gave us each a glass of house... More

They have an amazing inventory of wine and an incredible variety of wine by the glass with a meal. We were here for lunch and setting off on the road for a long drive so had to forgo the wine. The food was very good. The crab cakes were excellent, nice chunks of crab meat and a very good portion.... More
