Wine Bistro Westerville Ratings and Reviews
I LOVED The Wine Bistro. I loved the decor, the menu, I even loved the bathroom! Our waiter (the manager) was great, and funny, and patient (we sat and talked for quite a while), the food was great. I cannot come up with anything even remotely critical to say. I LOVED it. We will definitely go back. Thank you!!!
First time at Wine Bistro celebrating our 1yr Anniversary. Fried Green Tomatoes were just ok. We both had a ceasar salad which was just ok too. I had the short ribs which came with risotto and it was amazing. My husband had the hangar steak and ordered it medium. It was well done but he ate it anyways, he is not one to send food back. It was still good though. Would have been much better if prepared correctly. We tried both flights of white wine. The tropical was the best! #2 was delicious. We will definitely come back!
We had a great meal sitting on the patio, and the food was delicious. The Mediterranean popcorn was addictive, and the chicken waldorf salad sandwich was really good. I also appreciate that they have kids options available (though not listed on a menu). Perhaps it's because we were outside, and we seemed to be our server's only outdoor table, but she disappeared for long stretches of time. Overall, still a very nice meal!
We have dined at the Worthington location in the past. This was the first time we have visited the Westerville location. They're equally great. Very nice atmosphere. Food was terrific although we just had their cheese plate and flat bread pizza. Paired the food with a great bottle of Frank's Family Zin. Service was excellent. Overall...perfect place and night!
We had salads and a flatbread. Very good, very convenient and reasonably priced. Also tried a couple of cocktails and a craft beer. Good, but the strength is the wine selections that you can browse an pick whatever you desire. The staff can be very helpful in the selection.
We made reservations for Valentine's Day. They had a prefix three course. We both ordered the opposite items and shared everything. The prices were very reasonable after dinner,dessert and three wine flights the bill was less than 100. The short ribs and salmon were both very good.
Food was great as usual. We had a reservation and were seated immediately but felt rushed to leave at end of meal. I assume because there were people waiting for seating. The server came to our table every thirty seconds asking if we needed anything. We got the message to get out of the seats!
They obviously have an excellent wine selection and our server was very knowledgeable in aiding our selection. You can order a glass or bottle from the menu but it's much more fun to browse their shelves for yourself? Try the popcorn appetizer for sure. The short ribs and risotto are always a hit with me.
Loved the menu, service was good but no uniforms made it very difficult to regognize servers. Dining area is large and loud. Too many tables shoved into area and no quiet areas. Very difficult to hear server and every one was talking loudly in dining area to be heard.
A friend and I dined here during restaurant week. We shared a salad and the veal meatball appetizer, and I had short ribs and she had salmon. My short ribs were divine, served with glazed carrots and mushroom risotto. I saved room for the dessert, which was a wonderful bread pudding with ice cream. We had the happy hour cabernet and it was pretty good. Only drawback is a beeping that went on through the dinner ... just a little annoying, not too loud.
Otherwise service was friendly and we had a nice chat during dinner.
I previously left a rave review of The Wine Bistro. Sorry to say I can't provide the same compliments as I did before. The Wine Bistro fails miserably at consistency. The first time we visited a couple months ago I had the shrimp risotto and it absolutely blew my mind! I swear I was still telling people about that experience up to this past Friday! The shrimp was flavored with a knockout punch of Cajun seasoning, the risotto was so soft and creamy, the best cooked risotto I've ever had! That is saying a LOT because other than the Arctic, I've eaten on every continent on this planet and multiple times in Florence and Pisa, Italy. The sriracha flavor was present but not overwhelming, it was absolutely divine. I could go on and on. And yet, they ruined it for me this past Friday evening. Once you truly master something it's harder to screw it up than it is to get it right, so I have a feeling that perfectly cooked risotto I had months ago was merely a kitchen accident, a one-time fluke.
Now for this visit. It was the evening before Christmas Eve (Dec 23rd) and I wanted to treat my beautiful goddess to a wonderful meal before the fuss of the holidays begun the following day. I just wanted to give her a nice quiet night out; the two of us, wine and delicious food, no cooking, no cleanup (enough of that was on the horizon). Sorry to say, Wine Bistro shot our night to hell. This time it was downright awful. The risotto was dry and grainy in the middle, not cooked to perfection as it was the last visit. The sriracha sauce was underwhelming, lacking flavor or a pleasant mouth feel. The shrimp was rubbery, and not seasoned well at all. The wine... The flights of wine are poured from low end bottles of wine that can be purchased at the liquor store for $10 or less. The only redeeming moment I can give the Wine Bistro is the appetizer, the antipasto. It's kinda hard to mess up prepackaged olives and cheese, so there ya go... Take your chance, it's hit or miss at this joint!
