A word from The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard
Gervasi Vineyard & Italian Bistro offers Northeast Ohio a memorable destination for wine lovers, diners, families, businesses and tourists. Gervasi is one of the few special places where beauty, tradition, comfort and appreciation for wine and fresh food connect. Wine varieties are among the best in Ohio. The Gervasi Italian Bistro dinner menu ingredients are seasonally hand-selected and grown by local farmers. The property, vineyard, historic farmhouse, bistro, lake, landscapes, and the new villa project for overnight accommodations are picturesque from every view. Highlights include a marketplace specialty store, event pavilion, walking paths, outdoor dining and yard game activities for relaxation and fun.

Diner Reviews
  • "The drinks were great. The atmosphere is exceptional. The peppers on the pizza were very hot though. Other than that, our experience was good."

  • "Seated at wobbly table for 2 in basement next to party of 8. Our romantic evening was not very romantic because of the location."

  • "The food was nothing spectacular, we were seated at a table in a dungeon like basement area, it was not quiet & romantic like we'd hoped due to a few large party guests....however, our service and waitress was phenomenal. She was very polite and knowledgeable."

  • "The food was wonderful and we were there for an event, an outdoor concert in their beautiful pavilion and the evening was fantastic. The only problem was the food was slow in coming out but other than that the service was fantastic and overall was a great evening."

  • "A nice place to go for special occasions. I say this only because the atmosphere is lively, the ambiance is good depending where your seated. We were seated downstairs so there wasn't much of a view. The food was very good but over priced for the size of the portions they bring. I am a big eater and if I hadn't ordered an appetizer, salad (which does not come with the meal) and eat lots of bread I would have gone hungry. The location is beautiful but you could do better food wise at a different restaurant. If you want a atmosphere and ambiance and a good dining experience this is the place to go but be prepared to spend some money just to have a decent meal."

  • "So thats just it. Mediocre food. We had smoked gouda perogies, corn soul, lobster formaggio, and rigatoni. all mediocre. For $20a plate, id expect better food. Service was very slow, and didnt seem that busy. Food came out fast so this was a waiter issue. Dessert was amazing though, peanut butter chocolate torta, amazing. Ambiance is great, grounds are beautiful. Wish food was better and wish service was more attentive and faster"

  • "We went to Gervasi for our daughters birthday. There was 6 of us in the party. We had a wide variety of beef, fish, Pizza, Pasta and appetizers. Everything was really good. The service was excellent. The outside patio was popular as it was a nice day. We ate inside and pretty much had a private room. We'll be back."

  • "While it was a simple party of three, we had an amazing time at Gervasi Vineyard. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our table, but that was the only complaint the whole night. Seated downstairs, we had our AWESOME waiter Brad. (Please don't move him to the new location!) Service was quick, food was great and Brad allowed me to even choose an entrée with sides from different dishes to make it custom. He made it seem like there was no issue doing that! We ordered a dessert for the 3 of us to split and the kitchen wrote "Congratulations" on the dessert plate which made my sister's night special. We then moved it to the patio to listen to the last few songs of the band. Overall- GREAT EXPERIENCE! Can't wait to come back!"

  • "We went to the Bristro for our wedding anniversary. The food was very good. We had the daily special which we shared between the two of us. There was just enough to fill us up, but we where still able to eat desert. We are not big wine drinkers, but did get a bottle which we finished off and it was very good. The waitress was assume! She answered all our questions, explained what was around for us to do after dinner. She brought us out a complimentry serving of gelato on a plate with Happy Anniversary in chocolate."

  • "we had a table for nine and arrived at 7:15 pm. we did not get our food until 9pm. we have been there before and had a great experience but unfortunately we had out of town guests that were not impressed and likely not return."

  • "My husband and I hadn't been to Gervasi's and I thought it would be nice to surprise him for his birthday. As soon as our limo turned onto the property and followed the beautiful vineyard to our left, it felt as though we had returned to Napa Valley on one of our many trips. Ten of us enjoyed wonderful meals. For dessert I ordered the delicious Celebration Gelato Cake for the table. The staff is friendly, efficient and very polite. Our server Nick is great; very pleasant, knowledgable and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful. After dinner we took a stroll to the Villas and felt like we were being transported to a tiny Italian village! Can't wait for our next visit to enjoy the outdoor patio-dining and music."

  • "Our dinners were fantastic, our waiter Nick was great and we loved the restaraunt. We will definitely be back."

  • "The Bistro is a wonderful dining experience. The menu offers a wide variety of Italian delights from simple appetizers to pizzas to elegant entrees. The wait staff is friendly and very accommodating, and they bring each course at just the right pace. The restaurant itself has many levels and is decorated in an Old World Tuscan style. We ate downstairs which was decorated with a wall of wine. We can't wait to return once the leaves start to fall. On the weekends, reservations are a must. Unlike our experience with some other restaurants where we have been seated up to 30 minutes after our reservation time, our party of four was seated right on time."

  • "On Friday August15, we dined at the Bistro at Gervasi Vinyard. It was a Great Experience. From the Valet, to the hostesses, our Servers, and the Manager that evening, It was Great. Not to mention that our Meal was Outstanding!! Compliments to the Chef, and Kitchen Staff. We felt at home there, no one was pressuring us in any way, and the Staff was very knowledgeable about the Establishment, and The Menu. We will Definitely be back soon."

  • "A great place except for the food. The food is overpriced for just an average meal."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I visited the Bistro for the first time to celebrate my wife's birthday. Our server, Rob, was outstanding. He had a great knowledge of the menu and wine list. He was patient and knowledgeable with answering any questions that we had regarding each, along with providing some interesting tidbits regarding the restaurant and areas surrounding it. Although the portion sizes were quite large, the food was excellent. Rob mentioned the lobster formaggio that I had and the bolognse that my wife selected were staples on the menu throughout the year. After trying them, I can see why! The dolce sera wine we chose was outstanding also."

  • "We have been to the piazza before and have always wanted to eat at the Bistro. For my husbands birthday I made reservations for dinner. Our dinner was so good. We both loved the iceberg salad, I had the Lobster Formaggio and that was absolutely delicious! For dessert our waitress brought out my husbands tiramisu and it had a candle on it and was on a plate that said Happy Birthday! That was a perfect ending to a perfect meal! We have told several of our friends about our wonderful evening there and they have all said they want to visit your restaurant!"

  • "I love Gervasi! The indoor Bistro, outdoor Piazza, and the new Crush House all offer wonderful food, great service, and unbeatable ambiance. Plus it's so relaxing to roam the beautifully landscaped grounds before or after a meal."

  • "This was my second time visiting Gervasi, and it was another win. They do an excellent job at providing service, food, and a welcoming environment to enjoy wine. This is a great place to go for all types of wine lovers, and I would definitely return to the Bistro!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We dine fairly frequently at one of the Gervasi venues--Bistro, Crush House, or Piazza. The quality of the food on Sunday was very good. The special of the day which was ordered, shrimp and scallops, was disappointing, however. Only two shrimp and two scallops on the plate... for the price at least three of each should have been plated. This dish was, however, exactly as presented by our server. Nevertheless, this "special" was disappointing."

  • "This is a destination venue with beautifully landscaped grounds, a lively bar/patio scene and a gourmet restaurant that matches some of the best places I've eaten anywhere in the world. What a find! Worth it for the beautiful grounds alone, one can choose a pizza or a steak and eat like a king either way. And if you want to stay overnight, there are guest villas on the property that are absolutely lovely. Highly recommended!"

  • "We took our friends to the Bistro, and the service was excellent, the food was wonderful, the ambiance was great. This was our second time to the Bistro and found it just as good as the first time. Outstanding!"

  • "Went to the Bistro at Gervasi's to celebrate two birthdays in the family. Our server, Robert, was wonderful - very informative, helpful and sensitive to our needs. Food and wine was excellent. Shorts ribs and pasta dishes outstanding! Only suggestion: tables are deep and it can feel like you are a little too far from those sitting across from you which makes it a little less intimate and sometimes difficult to hear. The scenery cannot be beat, as well as the beautiful buildings, landscaping and surroundings."

  • "Service is always good and Matt was our waiter and he is always very helpful and a overall nice person."

  • "My husband and I took a group of our friends to Gervasi. Out of 4 couples, we were the only ones that have dined there previously, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals and time at this great restaurant. All said that they would definitely come back even though it's an hour drive from where we live."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful! The service was fantastic! I had the salmon, $36. Everything that went with the dish was really tasty, but the fish was rather bland. The palenta that was under the fish made the fish seen mushy, so I didn't like that. But my husband had the fillet and it was the best steak he has ever had! Done to the perfect temperature and very very tender. So over all it was a very pleasant experience! We will definitely go back!"
