  • Great scenery & slightly high prices for quality

    Gervasi is a beautiful place. It's great in the summertime to go sit outside and have a brick oven pizza and some wine. The Bistro restaurant is a nice place to take a group to for entertaining or special occasions. Unfortunately, the prices are a bit high for the quality (nearly 300 for a party of 4 with 2 people drinking wine). I would say there is a 20% discrepancy between quality and price. The desert menu is very lacking as well. You can't beat the scenery anywhere else around though.

    We went to Gervasi to celebrate our anniversary. We had a very memorable experience. Our server Kelly was very friendly and responsive to our desire to taste as many different things as we could. The wine was excellent and the food was top notch. The squash soup was excellent. The salad was well presented and fresh and had many different textures and an outstanding dressing. Our entrée of mussels and scallops on risotto was beautifully presented but the risotto did not meet the standard that the rest of our food did. The pizza was wonderful, the crust crisp, and the cheeses giving it wonderful flavor. Last but not least, the gnocchi was perfectly cooked and the red sauce was flavorful. To top everything off, we were presented with a gelato platter wishing us a happy anniversary and allowing us to finish the evening on a sweet note. Both of us were very impressed by how attentive the staff was and how much they seemed to appreciate the fact that we came there to celebrate our anniversary. We will be back and can't wait to share our dining experience with our family and friends. The only other thing to note is that we sat on the left side of the fireplace, along the wall, and it was a bit chilly, but it was a very cold day. PS-The bread served with dinner was also outstanding!

    We celebrated two birthdays within two weeks here. Both were fabulous, memorable events for all that attended. It is the first time I have ever had the option of warm gluten free bread served to me while everyone else is eating bread. To say the grounds and the decor are impressive is an understatement, they are breathtaking. The food presentation was as stunning as it was delicious.

    The atmosphere, decor and food were outstanding. Sam was very knowledgeable of not only the dinner menu, but also the wine list. I will definitely return to the Bistro. The Pork tenderloin, Delmonico and seared duck were cooked to perfection and the Lobster mash potatoes were a perfect match with the Delmonico.

    On Friday, October 31, my husband and I took our son (who lives in Boston's South End..a foodie hotspot) to The Bistro for dinner.....everything was fabulous!!! The seared duck breast appetizer was cooked perfectly and presented spectacularly, the short ribs were to die for and the gnocchi with chicken and pesto were so light and flavorful. Our bottle of Nebbiolo was drained dry....definitely one of the best ones Gervasi has made! My only complaint would be about how drafty The Bistro is in the cool weather...they seem to have an issue with cold air blowing from the overhead industrial pipe vents.

    We dined with friends on Saturday 10/25. it was the first time our friends came with us. The food was good. The service was not up to the standards of previous visits. We came from the Crush House, where we stopped for a drink before dinner. We brough some drinks with us. This did not sit well with our server. I don't like that they push you to order wine before bringing the dinner menus. Sometimes your beverage of choice may depend on what you order for dinner. One person in our party did not order a drink. No one ever refilled water glasses. The food was very good, the ambiance was a bit lacking (but our table was not as bad as the table next to us. They were stuck right next to the fireplace.)

    We have been to the Bistro at Gervasi before, and this was my husband's first choice for his BD dinner. My husband is a very good chef; so eating out is sometimes a challenge for an enjoyable meal. Food at the Bistro is fun and different and tasty. We had a flight of 3 red wines at the bar before dinner which helped us decide what bottle we should order. In fact, the wine was so good that we bought two more to take home. Service previously and this time was excellent. Servers are personable and helpful. Pricing is VERY reasonable for a high-end meal, much better than Cleveland or Akron. We live in Silver Lake (Stow) and find the 30-minute drive reasonable for a really good meal.

    Visiting from Chicago this is a nice option in Canton. However for the price point, I was expecting a bit more selection and food. The Di Mare which title suggests seafood was minuscule on the scallops and mussels. Three paltry mussels and 4 tiny scallops over an excessive amount of creamy heavy risotto. Again minuscule on the spinach and heavy on the cream on the risotto. My husband's meal of salmon was good. The salads were good. We most likely try a newer restaurant when we return to canton vs returning here. We ve had better meals previously here. I am curious about the new restaurant they are opening in November 2014.

Was surprised to be taken downstairs for seating, high windows and dark room. somewhat crowded and cramped space. new server was very nervous and inattentive. trainer very competent. food was high end and delicious. restaurant needs more upstairs and window seating for people to enjoy the views the winery is famous for. now i know to ask for one of those 2 window tables. you should too!
