Highly recommend. It has a great, casual atmosphere with very outgoing knowledgable, friendly staff and the food is very reasonably priced. I have tried many items on the menu and have never been disappointed. If you like wine, they have an amazing selection. I have recommended the bistro to many friends and they all love it.

I'm not a wine drinker so the theme itself was a bit lost on me. But the food was good and the service was very attentive. Plus a great location for before or after ball games or US Bank Arena events. Give'r a try if you're nearby.

Nice atmosphere for business lunches inside Rookwood shopping area. Kind of overlooked, perhaps because of the misunderstanding that it is more of a wine place than a restaurant, so you can usually get a table there. Some dishes are good -- I hear that the spicy shtrimp pasta is good and some in our group liked the flatbreads. The Napa... More

Great atmosphere, delicious food, friendly staff and phenomenal wine list!! We had a great dinner here and will be back! They were also very knowledgeable and flexible about food sensitivities (dairy & gluten).

This is a review for the place downtown near the Reds ballpark. We went to see the Reds today- they lost 1-0 but left early to try this place. One couple had been there before. A lot of wine and good food selection but very limited by the glass options. I shared a white wine flight with my wife and... More

If you can stand the noise level this is a wonderful restaurant. The food is good the wine selection outstanding. The server knowledgable and helpful. Only comment would be is that when you are making reservations it would have been nice to be informed that there was a private party going on

This review is for the W&G near the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. We went to a ballgame there while staying at the Marriott Kingsgate. We drove to a location near the ballpark a couple of hours before the game, parked our car and hit the streets looking for a place to eat. We didn’t expect to find a place... More

My husband and I loved everything about this restaurant...until we got food poisoning 2 hours after our meal. We suspect the meat ball appetizer, which we both had. If you can look past that issue, though, the wine was wonderful and the food was very good and quite wine-friendly and the service was personable and attentive. If you like your... More

We are regular patrons of WG Kitchen in Rookwood and Princeton. The spicy shrimp pasta, scallops and wine flights are all great. Used groupons before and go back often. Great service but no reservations so get there by 6:15 on Saturdays.
