A wonderful first visit! Food was beautifully presented and delicious. Wines, of course! But their craft cocktails are amazing, too. We’ll be going back for seconds soon!

Excellent place for a lunch date. Food selection was limited, but what we ordered was delicious. The wine selection is great -- the recommendation from the staff suited my and my wife's tastes perfectly. The service from the staff was wonderful and made for an exceptional experience in a region with tons of other great restaurants. From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel welcome. Service was quick and friendly very personable. My wife and I will definitely return and will recommend Vino Bistro to our friends.

Disappointing they did not have the dessert we wanted for our Anniversary. No recognition that it was our Anniversary even though it was marked on the reservation.

If you've not been here, you MUST give it a try. It is truly a gem of a place in Loudoun.

There was live music, and although it was a wonderful artist, it was a little loud, as we were trying to catch up with friends we haven't seen in a while. They have live music on certain days of the week/month, so check first before you go if you want a quieter dinner. But, if you're looking for an entertaining evening out, go when they have the music. After chatting with the manager, they have all different genres of great musicians lined up.

They were out of the Beef Burgundy, which 3 out of 4 at our table were planning on ordering, but the second choice for everyone was still very good. There's something on the menu for everyone ... fish, pasta, beef, lamb ... and it was all very good.

In addition to the wines listed on the menue, they have a wall of wines that you can just go peruse and pick a bottle of wine from, and they also sell it to go, and they had some nice finds that you can't find everywhere.

It's just a really great vibe. Nice bar area, the staff is all very friendly, in a rustic, relaxing, but fun and inviting atmosphere.

My wife and I had an excellent night out at Vino Bistro last night. We shared some wine over a cheese board, and then some entrees. My wife had the Shrimp & Grits and I had the Cioppino, and both were very good. There are a lot of winery themed restaurants in the area so this one does not get a lot of recognition. Pity for those who miss trying this one out because the staff are friendly and insightful, the food is decently priced, and there is a good selection of wines.

This is a great spot, an oasis of calm in the middle of “The Villages”

The menu is very tempting and the food lived up to the expectations! Very tasty and well presented.

Service was attentive, knowledgeable and authentic.

This was our first visit but definitely not our last!

We enjoy the weekly Flights & Bites specials, which offer both interesting wines to learn about and very tasty pairings with innovative appetizers. Wine specialist Brad is always on hand to make thoughtful suggestions from the exceptionally eclectic collection of bottled wines on hand, and the regular menu is always available with its line-up of dependable and varied offerings. Wine Bistro is a real asset for the Leesburg area, because of its steady support for lesser-know and upcoming wines from producers and areas that are not widely known or appreciated.

The braised short rib was more or less like beef stew with not a lot of taste. My wife’s salad had dry over-cooked chicken. Otherwise staff was very friendly and pleasant and it was a nice atmosphere. Also I was surprised at the limited wine selection for a restaurant of this name ( VINO Bistro).

Vino Bistro has wonderful 😋 food and, for me , a variety of beers on draft. My wife enjoyed the wine, with a good selection for pairing our Surf and Turf night. The shrimp, fish and clams were delicious. I am really glad I ordered the Braised Short Ribs. Tender meat with very savory sauce. Also impressed with asparagus and the light butter sauce that let the fresh vegetable taste come through with each bite.
The weather is nice. Ow in October to sit outside and not too loud to have a conversation. Holding back a star because the service could be more polished but no worries! Ask for Ricky, he will take care of you with a smile and great recommendations. Even the bartender went out of his way! Finally, try the Pumpkin ale before its gone! It's not over the top at all, but just right for a relaxing Friday night with my love! Cheers!

My wife and I have been to Vino Bistro twice and we really enjoy the food and ambiance! The service has been excellent and the price point for the food and wine has been quite reasonable.

It would seem to us that Vino Bistro's business model is to be a boutique restaurant with a very nice and eclectic selection of wines for patrons to peruse and choose with the help of their sommelier. Here is where we found a disconnect. Nothing turns us off more than having an overly attentive sommelier who is clearly trying to "sell us" on the most expensive or their "special" wine.

On the night we went to Vino Bistro, our waiter was attentive and helpful. The food came quickly and was excellent. When my wife and I walked inside (it was a beautiful night and sitting outside was a real treat) to look at the wine selection, the sommelier practically pounced on us and was pointing to the top shelf selections that were in the $200 range. We're not experts, but we do know what we like and we understand what wines ought to cost. We chose a nice red blend that was in the $41 dollar range. The sommelier was clearly disappointed.

I didn't finally get upset with him until the end of the evening. We enjoyed our meal and bottle of wine and was prepared to take a bottle home. The sommelier was very interested in getting us to purchase the "special" bottle at a special price. When we instead opted to buy a bottle of what we enjoyed at dinner, he simply placed it in a bag for us, brought it to the table and didn't say another word. He acted like a pouty child who didn't get his way.

My wife and I really want to come back and enjoy Vino Bistro, however perhaps you might employ more laid back informative sommeliers as opposed to young, socially awkward ones who clearly want to make a commission on getting you to buy what they want instead of educating you to make your own decision.

Great food, wine, service, and live music. Volume was a bit loud for conversation, but our table was close to the singer. Might have been less of an issue in another location. This was my second visit. I plan to return again.

We don't often get to this part of Loudon Co, but it was well worth the trip. Eclectic decoration plus inventive and delicious menu plus enthusiastic wait staff equals a great evening out at a great value. We had the mix and match charcuterie board for an appetizer and the duck and beef burgundy and sampled several wines. The wines were sold and at a very good price point and the food was fresh, delicious and a different take on the old standards. The waitress "lost" our dessert ticket, and we wanted forever for the bread pudding (which was superb, btw) but they took it off the bill and also gave us free coffee. We look forward to returning soon.

We loved the intimacy of the restaurant and the food was absolutely excellent. We had the cheese board, roasted beet salad appetizers, and seafood, salmon, beef filet, and Beef Burgundy entrees. All were superb…in addition to the French press coffee, bread pudding, and wonderful service. We shall return soon.
