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. We do have a community table and upstairs lounge area available for walk-ins as well, with the full menu. Continued

  • "we went to Gervasi Vineyards on Sunday at noon. It was a lovely atmosphere and the service was phenomenal. The food was very yummy and the wine was outstanding! A true gem."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 had a very romantic at-dusk dinner. The seating was quickly done and the server was extremely informed about wines and entrees. I definitely will ( and have) recommended The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyards to my friends visiting the area."

  • "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!"

  • "Gervasi is a great place for its scenic view, the chance to move past chain restaurants or a night out with a group of friends. However, I've found the food to be just okay. In the latest visit, our table ordered popular dishes of beef short ribs and lobster formaggio. The short ribs seemed more like pot roast, and was served with mashed potatoes that were a little watery, leaving the impression of instant vs. real potatoes. The lobster dish was good though, not outstanding. Gervasi just opened the casual "Crush House" which was bristling with patrons but my hope is that Gervasi would venture to take the next step, which is to improve its menu to match an outstanding scenery."

  • "Three couples drove down frm Hudson; we have all been sev times. No fault w/server, knowledgeable & attentive. Wrong wine flights for 3 of us, no salad dressing on one salad and very little anything else but lettuce, one asked for more croutons since she had like 2 and got 3 more. One meal was sent back beca it was cold. We were all disappointed in quality of our meal for the price. Went to Crush House and had a great time by the fireplace with good desserts. Great service. Decor of the Crush House was not what we expected -- thought it would be a cozy extension of Italy."

This is a true gem, and who would believe it is located in Ohio? Major kudos to the genius who envisioned all this and made it happen!!"

  • "Beautiful grounds. Only negative for us-we had issue with signage in locating the right building where we had our reservations--could have been clearer. Service and food was very good. It was more casual than expected--majority of people were in shorts. The sound level could have been lower for inside dining. Would like to try outside dining next time as the setting was lovely."

  • "The staff went out of their way for us. Our server Natalie was very personable and probably one of the best I've seen. Our food was perfect, and the property is breathtaking. Also the manager Bill at the Crush House took the time to make sure we were enjoying our selves as we did a wine tasting."

  • "Ever since we ran accross your winery a few years ago we have brought many friends and families to experience your wonderful winery. Everyone is amazed how wonderful this "find" is. We are from Willoubhby howvever and the drive can be a little long so we mostly go during the day and have not been able to enjoy any of your evening events which I am sorry about. We have many friends that would love to do a Girls weekend or friends weekend at one of the villa's some day. Do you every have any special deals on your rooms? Thanks again for bring this to the Ohio area. Linda Welker"
