Four for lunch
Beef sandwich w/caesar salad beef was as dry as jerky sent it back came back hot BUT tasted like leftover beef could not eat it; the salad was hot. Could NOT eat it wasted $$
Sweet potatoes fries on other plate cold no heat.
Fresh potato chips were ok but would have been good if not for those that were not done
Green tomatoes and crab dip were good.
I will have to think hard about a return trip.
Spending $40 for food could barely eat and was not good. ??????
Expected more from Richard Childress

Have never had a bad experience here --- wonderful food, artfully presented. Prices are reasonable, service has typically been great, and you are dining on the terrace of a winery overlooking a scenic landscape. Doesn't get much better than this!

The Bistro is a nice place for a relaxing lunch. The atmosphere and view are amazing. While the menu was fairly limited, the prices were better than I expected. Many of the entrees come with a wine suggestion. Our service was a bit rushed, but other than that it was a lovely experience.

Fresh veggie ravioli, elk, shrimp and grits...and that was just at MY table. Food is lovely, waitstaff attentive...a must do while you're at the vineyard!

Food was excellent - chicken salad on baby greens with blueberries and strawberries, comes with a muffin - I think it was some kind of apple struesel. Husband had 1/2 roast beef sandwich with 1/2 salad. Very fresh and tasty. Of course we shared a bit of Childress's Chardonnay. Wonderful view of the vineyard, great music outdoors. You can sit down on the lawn as well. Just a really great relaxing time. Waitress was great!
