We had a fabulous time out! Our first dining out experience since Covid-19. Food was great, both the hummus and charcuterie boards, Could have used a little more bread- especially the hummus. We got a generous jar of hummus, but ran out of things to eat it on. Service was lovely and we were able to have a great first time out since Covid disrupted everything.

It was an enjoyable night out with my girlfriends. We had hoped for a table out on the patio, but due to the poor weather, the Bistro was able to accommodate us with a table inside right by the doors, so we still had a beautiful view. Our server was very friendly and took a couple of group pictures for us. The food was delicious! We'll definitely be back!

I made the reservation for four at 5:45. Myself and one other showed up at 545 and two others showed up 5 min later. The hostess was very rude and told them they were supposed to be there at 530 and that they had to be out by 7 for someone else to use the table. Our waitress was very good and she helped sort it out. Everything else was great but disappointing to start the dinner this way. Was my first time at this establishment.

During covid, we hoped to be seated outside, with friends at one of four tables. I felt too close to the friends and the room with lower ceiling was noisy. Food was great for three of four plates. Soups and sandwiches. My roasted veg salad wasn’t so much a salad of roasted veg but garnished with a bit of beet. Glad to have option of Hester creek grape wine. Server was good but one must not be in a hurry for food to arrive. Still on the whole, since it was a good experience we plan to return for soup and sandwich

We love supporting the winery. Nice to have few changes on the menu sometimes. The food was just below average. It all tasted like smoked Gouda. Pizza crust was really hard like a cracker. Greens looked like it was taken out of plastic packages. I would not cone back fir the food but would for ambience and friendly staff

Our server was busy doing something on another floor. Another server brought us water and said our server would be along shortly. It was 20 minutes from the time we sat down till our server came to ask about our orders or to even explain the specials of the day. The food was good and after the initial long wait things were good.

Unfortunately, our hostess did not have our reservation on her list when we arrived. However, she was able to promptly find a table for us on the patio, which was greatly appreciated. The patio was lovely, as was our server. She recommended a great wine pairing with my meal, and she was prompt and friendly. I had the pesto pasta, and it was okay. Nothing special, which was disappointing for the price. A tad expensive for lunch.

Server was wonderful, but she was clearly overworked and felt the need to apologize for waits. Food was delicious, wine was delicious.

We arrived right when the restaurant opened - first seating - and as we were being seated I noticed food and debris under and around the tables (from the previous day??). I couldn’t help wondering what the cleanliness level in the kitchen may also be if the floors were not being cleaned from day to day. The food was unexceptional. I expect a bit more for the price point and in comparison to other similar winery offerings. The staff were cordial and service was good.
