Keeping Our Guests and Associates Safe

At The Wine Bistro, we’ve always made health and safety a priority. Assuring the well being of our associates and guests while maintaining the highest standards for cleanliness and disinfection in our restaurant is our commitment. For those guests who are able, we strongly encourage you to wear a mask or face covering when possible while dining in our restaurant.

We take very seriously our responsibility of opening our restaurant for service after the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. To meet this obligation, we’ve established additional protection measures and trained our team in enhanced best practices for safety and sanitation. Our work has been guided by the specific recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US Food and Drug Administration, and state and local health departments.

We have taken extensive measures to ensure the continued health and safety of our Guests and Associate Teams. Below is a brief overview of the protection protocol we have put in place.

  • Continued sanitization of all kitchen, prep, bar areas.

If a seat is not available we ask that you wait in your vehicle until you receive our text that your table is ready. No guests will be permitted to stand or wait in our lobby or bar area.
