The eggs Benedict would have been five star if the English muffins had been fresh and not hard as a rock.

Booked this based on the rave reviews. It was 'okay'. It says dress code is biz casual yet the staff are dressed in in cami tops /jeans,which is fine but don't have a dress code. Wait staff are clearly new (which seems to be the situation everywhere) but for a small menu I would expect the staff to be more knowledgeable. The Cippolini stew with Chorzio was robust and had great flavors. Filet mignon @ $39 was decent size and cooked to required taste but the au poivre sauce looked anemic and had a few sparse peppercorns in it. Steak Frites cooked to liking also but again, the sauce lacked authenticity. Mussels were tasty and good sauce with bacon. All food could have been a little warmer with temperature. As the staff were not on their game we didn't feel like complaining and sending it back. We asked for the dessert menu and there are 3 options I think. When we ordered the one we wanted we were told it was not available. But the creme brulee was delicious. Good price point on drinks and wine. Food price point is high for location/quality and level of service. The ambience was not as expected. Dark colors/nouveau type. AC could have been better but than could have been on off night. Would we go back? Probably not. The Italian joint next door was hopping and had a nice vibe to it.

Had a nice dinner at Vino Bistro with friends. Very good service and food was delicious as well. Sat at table inside by the open doors so had best of both worlds with entertainment from band in town square.

If you go to Vino Bistro, go for the food--it's good--and the company of your dining companions and resolve to be chill about the erratic service. The kitchen has its act together, the front of the house--not so much. After 15 minutes, we finally got glasses of water and ordered wine. The wine came 20 minutes later. We laughed it off and had a good time. We ordered the battered shrimp appetizer (good), a market salad (fresh and lightly dressed), the branzino (delicious), steak frites (also delicious), with sides of Brussels sprouts and a risotto cake. I'd go back for the food for sure.

The food was good, but very unhappy about service. The waiter was not courteous, didn’t wear a mask and didn’t have uniform.

The website advertises completely different from what I have seen.

A nice, overall enjoyable dinner. Service was a little spotty but to be fair, they were extremely busy and I know a lot of places are running short of staff. We’ll definitely be back!

Happy the crowds are back after covid and happy to support. However, but they were short staffed which made for a poor experience. Food is just adequate, not bad but nothing great. Drinks were slow to arrive, orders confused, and noise loud with bar music competing with live music outside. Other spots are a better choice for the price. Outdoor are with live music is nice- maybe just a drink would be a better option if not in a rush to relax and enjoy.

This was our 1st time. We loved Vino Bistro. The moment we walked in, the owner and hostess welcomed us with a friendly smile. We loved the idea of being able to walk up to see the different types of wines and also got educated about the diff types based on our pallet. The ambiance indoors is quaint and warm. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating with outdoor lights and heat lamps. The FOOD was amazing. The meats are grass fed which is rare to see and it taste so much better than non-grass fed meats! The desserts were amazing! We were too full so we took the desserts home but they still tasted amazing.
I highly recommend the bread pudding, the braised short ribs and filet, and the “17” Tempranillo wine!!

Had dinner on the patio on Saturday night. Scallops, salads, apps, crème brule . Everything was tasty. There was a nice bustle with many outdoor tables occupied and a band playing in the plaza. It is hard to ask for more.

We just moved to the area and thought we'd give Vino Bistro a try. We had friends join us, and we ended up having an outstanding experience. The food was terrific and the wine selection was quite diverse and excellent. We'll definitely come back.

We enjoyed the food and wine, though the "Bites" in the "Flight and Bite" came out 25 minutes after the wine flight, which defeats the purpose of paired food and wine tasting. We would have ordered a first glass of wine and appetizer had we known the bites were going to be a long wait to pair with the wine. Additionally, we were very disappointed in the service we received on this visit. It was not up to what we've come to expect from VinoBistro. The server spent 10-15 minutes with tables who called her by name, but never even introduced herself to us and asked us how we were doing only as a quick after thought to "Do you guys know what you'd like to drink to start?" It was very disappointing and hopefully not a shift in what we can expect going forward.
