Somedays was quite nice. We were there on June 14th for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food which included the Lobster beer mac & cheese -rich and delicious, charred brussels sprouts, risotto, salmon, bbq chicken pizza and salad. Varied and we all shared, a group of 6. Dessert was wonderful too, the chocolate mousse is just perfect - like eating a cloud and the creme brulee - decadent. There was nothing any of us did not like, a very enjoyable evening! Kevin , our wait person was efficient and very personable too! If you have never been you should try it!

The ownership apparently changed in January and with it went the great food and service. Not one dish was worth the money. The new owner introduced himself and did his best along with a waiter to make us happy, but not much you can do when the food is way over salted, over cooked and/or just doesn't taste right. It's too bad because this use to be one of our favorites.

This is certainly a fine choice for anyone who likes wines. The flights are really good, and fairly priced. The menu is on the smallish side, but does go well with the wines that are offered. The outdoor patio seating is nice, though evening sun can get hot.

More than the name has changed. We went here for years but now they are dangerously negligent with food allergies and customer service. Waiter brought wrong pizza and insisted it was gluten free. My daughter finally said that the gluten free pizzas here are round and to check with chef. Chef said it was not gluten free but didn't get the pizza correct until the third pizza. She ate it in the car on the way home. They charged us for the pizza and didn't respond to complaint. Glad she didn't eat the wrong pizza because she is very allergic but they didn't seem concerned. Buyer beware.

I this was our first visit since this restaurant expanded and changed its name. Ed lived the food, as always, and the service was great. It was very, very noisy in the newly added space, and we had difficulty conversing as a result. Other than the noise, it was a Dubois Friday night out.

I had the meatloaf, as I wanted some comfort food. It was well prepared and the mashed potatoes, green beans and mushrooms went well with it. The wine was a pretty good match if nothing spectacular.
In general the wines were somewhat brand driven, not necessarily the best value for money. They're good, but they could be more creative on finding smaller wineries.
If you like wine, this is the place to go
They have several different wine flights to allow you to explore your favorite types of wine. You can also get a bottle or glass of your favorite. They recently added some local beers as well. Good variety of food choices.
Came in for a special family occasion. Found excellent food and wine selections. My first go at a wine-flight and I was quite pleased (full disclosure: I'm a wine novice).
Service wasn't outstanding as we frequently had to remind our staff of earlier requests, but that may have been a result of the fairly late hour we went and the size (6) of our party.
All things considered, though, I'll definitely go again.
Generally good experience.
We've been to the wine guy bistro several times and it has always been a great experience. Great food, great service, good wine list. Our most recent visit suffered from a flickering ceiling light that became headache inducing after just a few minutes.

It was a slow night but I had the Maple Bourbon Salmon with asparagus. Very good, perhaps a little heavy on the maple and light on the bourbon. Lacey was my server and did a great job. I'll be back when in Columbus. Conveniently located near the airport.
Keep us coming back again and again
My husband and I went for lunch one afternoon and once again, we were not disappointed! The wine selection is great, as is the cocktail list, and the menu offers a good variety of options. The staff are very knowledgeable about their food and drink menus and are able to give very good recommendations on what to eat or drink. We sat at the bar, and the bartender helped me chose between wines and food options. He didn't steer me wrong! I was happy with my choice, as was my husband with his cocktail and lunch option. We love how close it is to our house, and can't wait to go back for another meal!
This is an interesting, eclectic and friendly spot
I have just returned from dinner at the Wine Guy. I would happily return. I had the Cioppino Seafood Stew. This dinner is clearly "two thumbs up." I will say that there were a number of temping things on the menu and I would like to try them on a return visit.
Although I had beer (good selection), this is clearly a wine place, with a wide selection. Make it a stop for you!
One of the very best meals of our lives.
It was an incredible Valentine's Day celebration! Our server, Leslie, is a friend and a total delight. My husband had the salmon and I had the filet mignon. Both meals were done to perfection. The Malbech wine Leslie recommended was very flavorful and the perfect accompaniment to our meals. The ambiance was warm, comfortable and inviting. It was in the top five meals of our lifetime.
Should have been better
We were initially sat a table that was large and positioned in such a way to make a party of 2 sit awkwardly far away from each other. After moving, we were sat in the bar area, which was fine. However, the bartender was too busy for the number of guests assigned to him. Additionally, the food we ordered took 45 minutes and my pasta was room-temperature. My husbands burger was overcooked, he ordered medium rare and received well done. At that point we were too hungry to send it back. For a meal that wasn't cheap, it should have been a better experience. The wine was great, however.
after a family funeral
My sister and I dined here January 2 after a family funeral. We had flown in from both coasts and spent the day in Columbus dealing with complex family issues. We decided to stay at an airport hotel the night prior to departing as our flights were quite early. We picked The Wine Guy more or less by chance as we knew none of the 3 Gahanna-based restaurant on Open Table. It was a short cab ride from the Hampton Inn at the airport; we were quickly seated at a quiet table. The service was great, the wine equally so, and the food exceptional. My sister had the risotto of the day and I the linguine with red sauce--serious comfort food. We would go back in the occasion arose, no question.
The Wine Guy Bistro always delivers with excellent service, wine selection, and dining. Our menu consisted of steak bruschetta, a chef's chopped salad, maple bourbon salmon risotto, and fish tacos. Everything was excellent. The server was very attentive and the timing of each course was on point. The manager helped us pick out an excellent Meritage. This restaurant is wonderful for dining in the winter, with lovely ambiance, as well as in the summer months on the energized patio. Always a pleasure.

Everything was pretty much amazing. Only complaint was where we sat we were next to a wall with the thermostat and a couple light switches. I'm not too picky but it just didn't feel as nice of a spot as any other table. Didn't ruin the experience at all, just some feedback!

The ambiance was very nice. The food didn't taste as fresh as it should and we thought it was over priced for the quality on both appetizers and entrees. The wine flights are always fun, but offer wines that aren't out there at the grocery stores and something completely different. There is a great wine selection in the restaurant though so it is always fun choosing a bottle of wine to have with dinner.
Always have like this place
This place is under appreciated. First you get to pick you bottle of wine, which are reasonably priced. With the addition of a 10$ corkage it is a great deal. Then you have the rustic ambiance. The food is always stellar. Most notable were mussels and the meatball appy. Entree standouts included the lobster mac/cheese which could use just a little bit more cheese sauce for me. The mahi mahi is also done perfectly with great sides to go with it.
Good food, great wine, nice atmosphere
This little restaurant has great low-key atmosphere, small outdoor dining area, and is not overcrowded. The food was very good, and the wines were great. Service was very attentive, and the price was about right. My only negative note was that the creme brulee was just a bit too burnt, and cut the roof of my mouth when I tried to eat it.
