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.

Cute place, well decorated. Our waitstaff was very nice and prompt. "What's my blend" wine flight was interesting. Food was mediocre at best. Our bill wasn't cheap by any means, slightly over priced for what it is.
Our server was very knowledgeable about ...
Our server was very knowledgeable about wine and was terrific. The shrimp and risotto was excellent. My wife ask that the Cajun spices be withheld and she enjoyed it as well. I always am able to find a great bottle of wine on the second shelf. Please keep the Secret Cellars Cabernet in stock. It is a great mid-priced cabernet! Great place to have a quiet conversation!

The food was creative and delicious! The atmosphere is unique and very interesting. However, the arrogance of our server outweighed any positives of this restaurant. I booked the reservation to meet family and friends from 3 different areas, some out of state. The server, Amanda, was one of the most unpleasant and arrogant servers I've ever encountered - and I worked in hospitality! Several guests in my group noticed it and at one point even wanted to leave before ordering. We arrived for a 9:00 reservation on 8/26/16, she promptly reminded us that they closed at 11:00pm. Right off the bat we felt like we were an inconvenience to her. I picked up the $200 check and still have her a $40 tip that she didn't deserve. Again, working in hospitality I rarely never tip under 20%. I get it, sometimes you never know what people are dealing with, but we will NEVER be back. Sadly, the food was amazing. If the owner reads these reviews, you need to have a serious conversation with that snob of a waitress.

The Wine Bistro is a beautiful restaurant. It is comfortable and inviting. Our server Dylan was easy going, yet knowledgeable about the food and wine offerings.
My complaint lies mainly with the protein portion of our meals.
My Spaghetti and Veal Meatball was not hot when delivered to our table. Dylan took it back to the kitchen and by the time it was returned to me, my parents had finished eating. It took over twenty minutes.
The Spaghetti was cooked al dente, but the sauce was very spicy due to containing crushed red pepper, which was not described in the menu. (I do not care for spicy food and would not have ordered it if the menu had included crushed red pepper in its description.) The Meatball was flavorful, but it had a lot of breading mixed with the meat.
I shared part of my parents' meals while waiting for my Spaghetti. My father's Short Ribs were not good. The meat was dry, chewy and very salty. But the accompanying Risotto was excellent. Hot and creamy with just the perfect amount of mushrooms. My mother's Chicken Saltimbocca was very thin, dry and not tender at all.
My mother had the Winery salad before dinner and she loved it. It was flavorful and fresh. My Chop Chop salad was good. My father's soup was good, albeit not as hearty as one expects a French Onion soup to be, but it was good.
The food was expensive, but had it been great, I would have never thought about the price.
The wine prices are very reasonable, especially for happy hour.
The glassware and silverware are of the best quality and enhanced our experience. The ambience of the restaurant is rich with dark woods, quality furnishings and beautiful fixtures.
I would definitely go back to the Wine Bistro for a glass of wine and some Tuscan popcorn.

This was an absolute gem of a place! Have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while and am very pleased that we finally got to try it out! The service was excellent and we were well attended to. There were so many good choices on the menu, we had a difficult time deciding! The atmosphere was perfect for our lunch with friends! We did not get to look at the wine list, but the bottles on the shelves were enough to make we want to return and try one of the selections there! Definitely would recommend this location!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
