About The Wine Bistro - Worthington
Marsha Ballman, GM
The Wine Bistro, with three Columbus, Ohio locations in Upper Arlington, Clintonville and Worthington, offers an exciting array of well-curated wines and a list of select craft beers. The menu features light and filling appetizers & small plates, soups, salads, flatbreads and entrees offered every day of the week for lunch and dinner. We open at 11:00 AM Mon-Sat and at Noon on Sunday.
Choose a table for two, a relaxed seat in the soft seating area, gather a group at one of the communal tables or in the private tasting room. Shop for wine priced at near state minimum or pay a small corkage fee (waived on Mondays & Tuesdays) to enjoy your bottle in-house.
We look forward to exploring great wine and food with you soon...

We go here every month for a book club. They have nice little locations in the restaurant tucked away for such occasions. Some food is pricey, but the salads are well-priced and good. Menu and wine selections are changed frequently. Next menu change is Memorial Day weekend.
Great Mother's Day
We went to the Wine Bistro for Mother's Day this year. Our server, Amy, was very kind, checked on us often and was great about explaining how things works as well as suggesting things when we asked. Overall we had a great time and would certainly return!
The service is always great. We enjoy searching the shelves for a great bottle of wine. We tried an appetizer this time and I would highly recommend the crab cakes. We then split a mozzarella fresco toasted flatbread. The balsamic glaze gives it a lot of flavor. We each had a salad, one chop chop and one Caesar, both very good. Overall, a very nice experience.

We had the cheese board and crab cakes, then I had the salmon for dinner, very good. My wife had the short ribs which was fabulous. The waitress did a excellent job selecting wine pairings with each dish.
Always a great option
The Wine Bistro is a reliable, neighborhood option when looking for a place to spend some grownup time with friends. Nice food options for a meal or a snack with build your own flights of wine as well as other fantastic options for the person who doesn't prefer wine.

Prefect place for date night and a bottle of wine.
We went for my birthday, awesome ambiance
We ordered champagne in advance to make sure that firstly they had what we wanted and then that it was chilled. If your looking for a special small group setting then the back room is amazing and perfect for a more private get together. Our server was attentive but not intrusive a perfect balance.

The best French onion soup in town. We have become regulars at the Bistro because of that soup. Just about everything is good, but the soup is outstanding.
This place was a pleasant surprise! Great service by Amanda, excellent wine, ordered vegan off the menu (yum) and had a very nice time with friends! Adorable and comfortable decor - just a really wonderful evening!

Braised short ribs and mushroom risotto was excellent. Flatbreads were also good. The wine flights are always great.

Very good food and service. Great wine list, we have been able to eat at all of the Wine Bistro's in Columbus. One of our favorite places to go.
Amazing food with great wine prices
We were able to get a table for two at 8 o'clock on a Saturday night which I thought would be hard for a place with a menu as good as advertised. Everything was spot on and delicious and I love the amount of wine they have on the shelves to choose from.

Overall enjoyable. Flavors good. Some work needed on basic service protocol. Appetizer and starters, salad and soup came out at same time. Dishes were not cleared in timely manner, dinner served before starters cleared. Waiter seemed to be serving the entire restaurant.
Best onion soup in town
Food is really good and innovative. Meatball appetizer and the baked brie are terrific. We really enjoyed the glazed salmon entrée. Can't go there without ordering the onion soup.
My 2 friends and I decided to check out the Wine Bistro-Worthington this past Saturday. Wine was good, dessert was FABULOUS but the service was TERRIBLE. Our waitress seemed to ignore us all night. She didn't refill waters, didn't come back to check if we wanted to order something else, forgot to add stuff on our bill and then after we had paid, came back and added stuff on. Just poor service. So unimpressed and doubt I will go back to that location.
It was good
The service was a little slow with re-filling cocktails, but the food was very solid, and the dessert was terrific.
Relaxed yet eclectic atmosphere. Very friendly.
Great place to chill and relax with friends or family. Excellent service. Knowledgeable staff with an extensive wine selection. Our son was visiting from out of town and we went to the Wine Bistro for dinner. It was the perfect atmosphere for both younger and older crowds. He loved the décor and the food. They also have a small lounge section which is a great spot if you simply want to have a conversation while eating an appetizer and sipping a glass of wine.
Restaurant Week Visit
I'm a frequent visitor to the Clintonville Bistro. Same great service, same wonderful wine options, same delicious food.
Soups and flatbread to die for
The French onion soup is the best in town. The appetizers are all wonderful especially the veal meatball and the baked brie. We love the place.
Girls Night Out
The Wine Bistro is a great gathering place to meet with friends, have some good food and wine and chit chat.
Great for groups!
We have 8-10 women who meet every month at the Wine Bistro. We love Tuesday nights because there is no corking fee and the staff are quite friendly and know our favorite wine and have it chilling for us when we arrive. I'm so glad we picked the Worthington Wine Bistro for our monthly gathering.
Cant Wait to Go Back!
Food was amazing! The Truffled Mushroom Bruschetta is to die for! Already planning my next trip in!
Great NewYears Eve
We are very happy we chose to go to Wine Bistro for New Years Eve. They offered their normal great menu. Not over crowded for dinner.

The ginger glazed salmon with rice and snow peas is excellent. Buy your wine by the bottle. The mark-up is lower than other restaurants. A bottle of Smith & Hook Cabernet cost me $20 at Anderson's and cost me $30 at The Wine Bistro plus $8 corkage fee. The Caesar salad was just average.
The food in general was tasteless. The Big Red wine flight was flat and did not represent what I would consider to be classified as Big Red.
This was an amazing find!! The food was awesome, the wine selection was immense, and the ambiance was cozy and romantic. We will definitely be going back soon!
Beware of Sunday evenings!
First food for some of the party great! Wine choices superb!! Just don't make a reservation for 10 at 7:00 p.m when they closed at 8:00 p.m. I did call ahead to check. Was ASSURED it would fine given it was the holiday and the private room (with a $200 food and drink minimum), we would be accommodated, even after 8 p.m. Two of the entrees were not prepared correctly, and sent back to be corrected and the kitchen CLOSED! So $289 in about an hour - party over out of time!! Very disappointed!!!
Date night out
We were both in the mood for some good wine and good food and since I had been to the Wine Bistro in UA, I knew it was the perfect spot to get out and have some good wine and ambiance! All of our expectations were met and we would definitely go back :)

Great atmosphere for group get togethers. We enjoyed it so much we are going back.
Nice atmosphere and well served
Four of us shared two starters: naan with hummus and crab cakes. The crab cakes were very good, the naan ok. All enjoyed the entrees: two ginger salmon, one chicken saltimbocca, one shrimp with risotto. We also enjoyed wine flights: a white flight and two different red flights. The server's timing was very good, allowing us time to enjoy the starters and converse, with entrees following soon but at a comfortable pace. First time there for three of the four of us. We'll be back.

We love the Wine Bistro. That said, they seem to have raised their prices and the quality of the wait staff isn't what it used to be. Maybe we just caught them on an off night.
never served, left after waiting
I specifically picked this restaurant for dog friendliness. I arrived and waited 20 minutes to be seated it was nice out so that was expected for the patio. Once we were finally seated we were told someone would be right with us. We waited 15 minutes and watched other people get served and watch tables get cleaned. We eventually left and ordered out elsewhere. It was not busy at all considering the inside was near empty so I have no idea why we went ignored for so long. Would not recommend this restaurant.
We Always Enjoy
My wife and I have been to the Wine Bistro on several occasions and we always enjoy the food, wine and experience. I will say that the ambiance is what brings us back. The décor and layout (surrounded by wine racks, high ceilings, etc.), and jazz standards playing in the background creates a relaxing mood to enjoy great company, great wine and great food. Our service was wonderful despite it being a busy Friday evening. We will be back soon.
Great outdoor seating
Enjoyed the wine flights with our dinner. Great way to try new wines. Dinner was very good and server was attentive. It was a beautiful night to sit on the patio.
