Wine Bistro Westerville Ratings and Reviews

We thought we'd try someplace new for our weekly date night and while we usually avoid the strip mall or plaza style restaurants we decided to give The Wine Bistro a shot. What a surprise! The interior design is inviting and warm, nicely decorated and the staff highly attentive. The food... Jesus the food. We began with two appetizers, a wine-cheese fondu served with pita and antipasto, both were divine. I had the shrimp risotto and was blown away, she tried it and was equally blown away. She had a Beef Tenderloin salad. A salad is a salad, nothing to brag about but nothing negative to say. Our biggest complaint was that the volume from the bar area completely overwhelms the entire restaurant, EXTREMELY loud and not what we expected at a wine-centric establishment. We are accustomed to much more respectable dining atmospheres where people speak quietly and privately over food and wine, it sounded like a frat party at the bar and there wasn't a spot in the restaurant where you could sit and escape it. There was no music playing, I have a feeling some light jazz or adult alternative would settle the volume issue.
I would recommend buying flights here rather than glasses of wine. You can buy the bottle at the liquor store for the price of one or two glasses at Wine Bistro. Also, some of their wines are cheaper $6.99-$14.99 wines. The corking fee is $8? LOL. Enjoy tasting the flights and take the money you save to buy your favorite sampling at the liquor store.
Besides the noise level and overly bloated wine prices we had a terrific evening. Two appetizers, two dinners and two flights of wine for $85, $101 after tipping. We will def be back but will make are its after peak hours to avoid the excessive noise.

We had lettuce wraps, crab cakes, and a chicken pesto flatbread. The flatbread was superb. I ordered a flight of chard-no-nos and did not like any of the three wines provided. My spouse ordered an unsweetened iced tea which was very strong. We mentioned when we made the reservation, as well as to our waitress that we were celebrating our anniversary. The waitress agreed to take a photo of us but there was nothing special provided by the bistro to mark the occasion. The establishment has a lovely decor and a wide selection of wine choices.

We ordered a very nice Wine Bistro salad and split a flatbread with procuito and Gorgonzola with pear, mighty tasty! The bench seating is a little uncomfortable but the tables are fine. I don't know why this place isn't paced all weekend

We've been to this location several times before, however, the evening was mostly ruined by a 2-year old child screaming and whining. Its parents made no effort to address the issue to the detriment of the rest of the patrons. Waitresses and restaurant host were all young adults and either didn't care or were incapable of addressing the situation. Based on our experience, it will be a while before we risk enduring a repeat experience there.

Very nice last minute choice for dinner after walking at the metro park. Food was fresh, excellent quality, service was a little slow and the restaurant seemed understaffed. The servers did a great job considering.

We had a wonderful time at the Wine Bistro. I originally asked for the private room because we were celebrating two birthdays(65) and two anniversaries (over 40 years each) I guess I did not call far enough in advance. But enjoyed the long table in dining room.
Sabrina did a great job getting us started and another waitress helped us finish out the night. Great service. The food was delicious.
The only unfortunate thing to happen, 6 of us ordered the salmon, one serving was considerably smaller than the other portions. It became a joke at the table for the gentleman who was slighted. ;(. I felt bad for him but I knew he wouldn't complain. Please have your staff to try to notice such disparities. My friend left hungry.

The flatbread and salad were very nice. It's a little noisy for my taste, due to hard surfaces throughout and the booths were uncomfortable (we were asked to be reseated to a table and they were great about that). the wine was great and they have several by-the-glass options that are really nice.

This is a wonderful dining experience with great food and WINE for all occasions. Me and the girls love a good girls night out and this is definitely a great place for it. Our server this go around was not fantastic (a bit snippy and just really not that attentive), but typically we have had great service.

We have been to this restaurant often. My husband enjoyed his pasta dish and my glass of wine was very good. However, I ordered a lemon chicken pasta dish and I could not recommend it. The chicken was very tough and the pasta was prepared very simply, with just a few tomatoes and sauce. It was definitely not a $15 dish.

I booked a table for 4 through open table. I had to call back and five more. Very helpful. When I arrived they had given our table to someone else left us standing in middle of dining area. We went back to front because they clearly realized what had happened. They were able to put a table together in the middle of the room which I was not happy about.

first time there and we all 7 enjoyed what we ordered. and the food was very good. our waitress was super, very attentive , and took good care of us.

The Wine Bistro has potential.
The Wine Bistro has potential. However, this location is lacking in food quality and service. It is expensive for what you get so I expect good food,friendly and attentive staff. None of which we received the evening we dined. I love the concept and the atmosphere inside but the staff will have to step up in their customer service for me to return. To make matters worse a customer brought their unleashed and unsupervised 10 week old puppy on the patio. The puppy was disruptive and the customers and staff were oblivious.
Great Restaurant & Wine Store buried in Suburbia
The WIne Bistro is a a great restaurant and wine store hidden in the chaos of the Polaris area. They are first and foremost a wine store, with a huge selection of wine on every wall of the restaurant. They are also an upscale casual restaurant with an inventive menu, ranging from gourmet flat breads to full meals. You can pick out a bottle of wine from their shelf and enjoy it in their restaurant.
The facility has a bar, a lounge (great for talking with friends) and a restaurant seating area. I recommend it!
Girls night dissatisfaction
This was the first time I had been there and the atmosphere was wonderful when I walked in so I was excited to begin my girls night out!
The mood immediately change when I was approached by a waitress and informed her of my reservation and her body language and tone said she so didn't want to seat me. I was very happy to see we had a private room and even took a picture to show my husband, but then was very disappointed to find out that she was also going to be our waitress, as her attitude didn't change and she wore a very long face the entire night. We had a party of 7 and each of us felt the same. Very disappointing.
The menu is great and the wine selection extensive. We ordered the baked brie, which was good. Then we ordered a caesar salad with grilled chicken, the flat bread with cheese, apple and panchetta, the lobster fettuccine, and the crab cakes. Every entree was bad. The chicken on the salad was over cooked. Pasta was tasteless. The flat bread was so hard it seemed like it was cooked the day before. Overall it was very disappointing and we will not give them another chance.
What a great restaurant! The atmosphere ...
What a great restaurant! The atmosphere is relaxing and has a rustic ambiance to it. The wine setup is very cool with open selection of the bottles and no corkage fees on bottles purchased at the restaurant. Plenty of spaces to relax causally in an armchair, sit by the bar for happy hour or have a nice dinner in the dining room. Will definitely be returning soon!
