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

Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first visit, we had heard much about the restaurant. Despite previewing the Bistro's website, we were surprised how casual it was -- many clients were in shorts, noise level was higher than we expected. The wine list was entirely Gervasi selections. We sampled at the bar before being seated -- wines are young, look forward to seeing them after some time in the cellar. Service was very attentive but not intrusive. Red wine was served too warm (70+ degrees). The dining room was beautiful -- tall ceilings, wooden beams, stone fire place, wrought iron details -- but too warm to be comfortable, and the noise level was higher than we like. The tea selections at the end of the meal were varied, but they had no plain black teas."

  • "My husband and I had heard many good things about Gervasi Vineyard, but had not been there ourselves. We thought we'd try it out to celebrate our anniversary. We were not disappointed! Beautiful surroundings indoors and outdoors. The plants and flowers lining the brick walkways are gorgeous there! They also have a wonderful pavilion that would be perfect for a more intimate wedding reception. We went in July. I think there were as many people outdoors (dining, playing games and walking around the lake) as there were indoors. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully plated. Gervasi is now one of our new favorite places!"

  • "Service was fantastic. Staff was polite and engaging. Beautiful setting both inside and outside. Presentation of the meal was enticing. Wine fabulous. Good idea to stroll around the grounds after dinner. Would definitely return for dinner and an overnight stay."

  • "Really unusual place and simply gorgeous. The facility is spectacular and the grounds were designed for cameras! We stayed overnight in a beautiful two story villa that could hardly have been more tastefully done - no expense was spared. The restaurant is large but feels comfortable. Would say the food was very good but not great - we are a bit picky. Service was superb. Their wines are the only wines offered and we particularly enjoyed the red Barolo. Tuscany is a favorite area for us to visit and this facility does its inspiration proud. We live about an hour away and will look forward to returning."

  • "Just a wonderful evening out, Gervasi Vineyard went above and beyond my expectations for the evening. The staff was warm and helpful, the food and wine were just fantastic. The Bistro and the grounds are just beautiful, I just don't think we could have asked for better evening out on our Wedding Anniversary. Thank you!"

  • "This is our 3rd or 4th visit. It is usually an 'occasion' but, this time, we just wanted a great night out. The service was excellent. The food was excellent also - we shared the very tasty Iceberg salad and it was still a lot. The wine was perfect with our meals, and our waiter assisted us with our choice. I had salmon, and my husband had a pasta. Both were very tasty. We have eaten upstairs and downstairs - good ambiance either way. The grounds are great for a stroll, and they have a nice shop."

  • "Not only were you open on the fourth, our out-of-town guests were blown away by the food, the service (Brad) and the setting, inside and out. The chef honored a request for clear soup. Amazing. Brafd was all a waiter should be. Our friend always wants to go to Benders' to re-live a childhood tradition, but now says we must go to Gervasi's as a new tradition. Your Bistro would be stellar in any netropolitan setting. Congratulations!"

  • "This was my daughter's choice for her birthday dinner. I had been to the restaurant once and was impressed. My daughter is a bit of a food critic. She had heard good things of Gervasi and wanted to try it. None of us were disappointed. I had indicated that it was her birthday when I made the reservation. I didn't think they would make a big deal about it (and embarrass her) they all wished her a happy birthday and gave her a special dessert. It was a delightful evening. We will definitely go back."

  • "This was our first visit to Gervasi Vineyard, so we didn't know what to expect. We had dinner reservations at the Bistro. We were seated exactly on time, our server was a fun, enthusiastic woman who was very knowledgeable about the menu items. The atmosphere was top-notch, lots of attention to detail (as was true of the entire resort property.) The food and wine were very good. When we told the server that we were going to split the two entrees we ordered and asked for an extra plate to make it easier to do so, she offered to have them split in the kitchen. We will definitely go there again. A great experience from start to finish."

  • "We enjoy going to Gervassi and go occasionally with our children (all in their 20's) as a "family experience." We enjoy trying new menu items and the day we were there was the first day of their new summer menu. Their wine list is also very good. Nice place to create memories!"

  • "We LOVE Gervasi....It is beautiful...and the food and service are top notch...the atmosphere is such that they make you feel very special. I love it when a manager asks how your service was...it shows true attention to detail...The "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on our dessert is a nice touch too. It is a bit pricey, but in this case you truly get what you pay for!!!"

  • "While we had a very nice time celebrating our anniversary we were a bit disappointed in the lack of any dress code at the Bistro. Fine food and ample portions. Lovely scenery and pleasant staff. However, while apparently they have a liquor license at the Crush house (they indicate the availability of cocktails there) the Bistro server informed us they did not offer cocktails at that location. My wife enjoys wine - I am less of a fan. Gervasi should be honest about what they serve. Sort of dampened what otherwise was a very enjoyable evening."

  • "this is a good place to eat and have a nice dinner. food was outstanding. its hard to find good wine made in Ohio. wines in Ohio tend to be very sweet or light bodied. they make there own here and yes they have very light bodied or sweet wine however there cabernet is wonderful its heavy bodied nice a dry just love it. the restaurant does not have a bar but they do offer some liquors for after dinner and beer, but I don't go there for that I go for a nice dinner and wine. if you want a bar scene then visit crush house which is right there it has a full bar including all there wine. if you never been here you need to do the wine tasting. all in all not disappointed."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My wife and I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The menu varies and the wine list is limited but offers excellent choices. Reservations are needed for the Bistro but the patio and the crush house are alternatives for those who wish to wait for seating or arrive early."

  • "My second time there. This visit we ate in the bistro and toured the crush house. Grounds are amazing. Before I ate on the piazza so had pizza and sangria which was great. I did not expect the indoor food to be outstanding , it was! Wonderful menu, everyone's meal was fantastic. Very creative. Rocky the sous chef came out at our request so we could compliment the kitchen. Christine was our server. Very knowledgable and attentive. Wine was impressive too. We had back up wine in the car just in case ....but there was no need. Gervasi has it all covered."

  • "our appetizers, salads and main entre all arrived at the same time. our waiter showed up about 10 minutes later and apologized and offered to have the entre re-heated. that's just poor service, the entre should have been replaced. nothing was offered to compensate for this gross error."

  • "As a group of six, we arrived 45 minutes prior to our reservation to walk the grounds and enjoy the atmosphere and weather. We purchased wine and began our excursion of the beautiful grounds. What a gorgeous venue! At 7pm we entered the Bistro, our table was ready and our server was attentive. All our meals were delicious and served "hot"....wonderful! So happy to have this facility close to home for our enjoyment."

  • "Lovely evening with attentive service. Our wine choices were excellent. Large portions and we split our salad. Nice dessert list but would highly recommend the tiramisu. Dining here is an event not just a meal. Plan to return and looking forward to the opening of The Twisted Olive. Would love to see what you could do with a caprese salad."

  • "We have dined at the Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. The wine trios are always a treat. As usual, I had the short ribs. What a meal. My wife had the fillet. Done to perfection. Matt, our waiter, was a treat. Great sense of humor. "Johnny on the spot". WE'LL BE BACK."

  • "This is my fourth trip to this restaurant, and each time I enter with high expectations, only to leave satisfied, but not impressed. The waiter was pleasant, but not quite efficient. I could understand it at first because it was busy when we arrived, but by the time we left, it was not, so one would think the service would have been better. My meal, a pork dish, had stringy and rather tasteless pork. The sauce on it was very flavorful and partially made up for the meat. My friend had a lobster pasta dish. The pasta was very tasty, however, it is almost criminal to say there was any lobster to be seen on the plate. Perhaps "lobster flavored pasta" would have been a more appropriate title. Hopefully it will be better next time"

  • "The good news... The food was great. The cauliflower soup was phenomenal! I need to go back for more sometime very soon! Our waiter was outstanding. If I remember correctly his name was Matthew. The bad news... The little wine cellar room in the back of the bottom floor where we sat was terrible. There are only 3 tables in there and the way the voices bounced around that room made for an unpleasant experience. Do yourself a favor and request NOT to be seated in there. I know I will be doing that from now on."

  • "We enjoyed our Sunday lunch so very much. There is so many good things to love .....the grounds, the restaurant, the oudoor eating area, the marketplace, just beautiful. The food was delicious, and the service just outstanding. A very special surprise was the gelato with the Happy Birthday written in chocolate on the frozen plate, that just topped off my special day. Thank you."

  • "Gervasi is one of our favorite places to dine for special occasions. We like to go at least 1 to 2 times per year for birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas presents. It is quite a drive for us, otherwise we would like to go more often! The food is fabulous (especially the short ribs!), the wine is delicious, and the service is outstanding. It also has a fantastic view with places to walk around and see some great sights. Our last visit there was hosting a wedding and had live entertainment on the patio with people dancing too. It's a little more costly than your average dine-in franchises, but you get a much more memorable experience for those dollars. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Gervasi Vineyard is a total surprise in a nice residential area of Canton, Ohio. The facility is attractive, the people are friendly, and they expect lots of private parties. The Bistro serves an excellent menu with a flair towards Italian, but there is a wide variety. The pasta was very fresh, the portions ample, and the service helpful and responsive. They obviously have a large wine selection, and the gelato was terrific. If we are in Canton again, this is where we will eat."

  • "My husband and I dined at the Bistro on Fathers Day night. After a fantastic day of hanging out at the grounds, this was a great way to end a perfect day. We were seated in the "wine cellar" portion of the restaurant, and we hadn't dined in that part of the space before. It was romantic and very cool. We both enjoyed our meals (steak) and a great bottle of Barolo. We went wine tasting at the bar upstairs earlier in the day and got to taste a lot of the wonderful Gervasi wines. It was a great day!"

  • "The best term I can think of in terms of describing Gervasi Vineyard is "MAGICAL". I was taken there on my birthday last July, 2013 and have been back at least a dozen times since. It's my favorite place to dine in Northeastern Ohio and offers numerous photo opportunities because of its magnificent grounds. Everything from the Bistro, the Crush House, the Patio and the Tuscan style Villas breathes class. All the guests I've taken to Gervasi's were awed by their dining experience and wanted to return at their earliest convenience."
