A word from Gervais & Vine
Gervais & Vine is the Vista's favorite gathering place for diners that desire the unique blend of a French cafe, Spanish bodega, and Italian cucina. Our wine bar is the ideal place to unwind after work, or gather with coworkers for lunch. We are pleased to offer a beverage menu accented with an eclectic selection of over 40 esoteric, award winning wines from around the world.

Chef Jason Holowacz creates his menu with wholesome, locally grown ingredients and lunch and dinner specials feature fresh fish, choice meats, and seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Experience a selection from our small plate menu and then make your wine selection from either a full or half glass, or by the bottle. We also feature live music on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and when the weather is welcoming, our patio is a great place to enjoy all that Gervais & Vine has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you to the Vista's favorite gathering place.

    We had a great meal and delicious drinks on our date night. Our server was great and so was the bread pudding we had for dessert. We will definitely be going back!!

    Best place in Cola (and maybe SC) for the small dishes of Spain; both shrimp dishes, the tenderloin, and charcuterie board are worth ordering, but we really enjoyed the fingerling potatoes & brussel sprouts as well. Hard to go wrong with any of it.

    Visiting my daughter at USC - wanted to try something different. Booked reservation via link on TripAdvisor - was awesome walking in at 7:30pm on a Friday night of the USC vs. GA football weekend and having a table for six waiting. Had an excellent evening with Justin talking care of us. My girls - wife, daughters and friends loved sharing tapas and sampling wines. Free off street parking was appreciated too!

    My wife and I tried several dishes from their tapas menu. We took the waiter's recommendation and tried some spreads. Costa Brava, hummus, and She Crab were out of the world. Gambas, which is Spicy shrimps with Roma tomatoes was also wonderful. We liked this typical garlic shrimp dish with a twist. Every dish that came out of their kitchen was uniquely flavorful, which represents this restaurant's own character, I believe.

    One of my favorites is the petite filet. It was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. I love the balsamic reduction and feta cheese that it's served with and the little fresh greens. I also had the roasted brussel sprouts. YUM!

    my fiance and I went for dinner on a Friday night, and we had a very nice meal. the food was good and the service was excellent. our waitress also made an excellent wine suggestion. the prices were a tiny bit higher than I would expect for the area, but we enjoyed our meal and will most likely go back.

    We had a lovely evening at Gervais and Vine. We asked to be seated outside but after ordering our drinks, a very dark cloud appeared and the wind really picked up. The staff promptly made room for us at an indoor table. The atmosphere was intimate with a lively and energetic vibe. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. There was a great selection of tapas, and we particularly enjoyed the lamb chops and brussels sprouts. The bread that accompanied the Costa Brava spread was nice and crusty. We look forward to our next visit.

    We went to gervais and vine for the first time to celebrate a birthday, after having seen it for the past two years. It was wonderful. The food was excellent - some unexpected combinations. The house made paté was outstanding; the escargot had preserved lemon, and was very flavorful and well cooked. The duck was amazing- medium rare and melt in your mouth. The baked Brie was an explosion of flavor. Kristin our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and the food - led us to some great pairings. Overall- go!

    Gervais and Vine used to be our go to date night restaurant. After our lady trip, we won't be returning. We waited forty minutes after placing our order for our first plate to arrive. I can bake Brie at home faster than that. Our server was in shorts and an untucked shirt. What happened to this restaurant being elegant with great service? There's a new tapas restaurant in town, and we will definitely be giving it a try.

    Have had lunch here several times. Great wines to pair with foods. Busier at night so slower service, but still good overall.

    Love this place. Have been several times in groups from 2 to 5. Never disappointed in any small plate I've tried. It's a really good place to try new foods, too, since you can share. My favorites are the Moroccan pork, eggplant fries, Spanish meatballs, and gambas. When then buffalo pizza is on special, I would recommend that as well. Can't wait to go back again!

    Great place to go before play at Trustus. The spreads are always a favorite. The blue cheese cheesecake was a different desert but surprisingly good. More of a desert cheese that sweet.

    I've eaten here on a number of occasions, with work colleagues during and after work (note--I wouldn't recommend a large group lunchtime event here; it's not what they're set up for), and with friends, and as a date night outing. All visits have been good-dinner with small groups has always been wonderful. As a diabetic vegetarian who can't eat salads (no lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, etc.), there are often slim pickings for me in Soda City restaurants. Gervais & Vine always has interesting, tasty dishes that aren't too filling. They also appear, IMHO, to have the best by the glass wine list in Columbia. I can't think if anyone else that has Madiera Port, for example. Great parking, too, especially for the Vista.

    Went with my boyfriend for datenight. We were able to be seated at an intimate table that added to the night. Our server was very nice and funny. She had gear suggestions on food. The menu is tapas style so small plates. We had the petite filet, goat cheese spread, asparagus, Parmesan fries, and Moroccan pork. Everything was amazing. For dessert we had the bread kidding a lá mode. We also enjoyed a fine bottle of pinot noir. Overall it was an incredible experience.
