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

  • "A great location on all accounts...Bistro, Piazza, Crush House and Villas. We have experienced them all and have brought many others. We will be back, and often. 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"

  • "Had a wonderful, attentive, knowledgable waiter! Food was great! Wine great, as always! Would have preferred a table upstairs (rather than the cellar) where it is brighter & the view is nicer. Especially when bringing guests that have never been there."

  • "Be prepared to spend some time waiting on your food. We had a table of 8 and waited at least 30 minutes for main course after appetizers. Reservation was for 7:45 and sat down at 8:05. We were not in a hurry so not a big deal. 2 hrs without desert."

  • "Our server brought a menu to us twice after already taking our order. Don't know what she was thinking. Our celebration was for our anniversary and desert was brought saying "Happy Birthday". We enjoyed our treat just the same. This was our third year to celebrate at Gervasi's. Other than that, we enjoyed the view since we were seated in front of the window. Our food was very good. We will return most likely for our 4th anniversary if not before. We'd like to try the patio area."

  • "All 7 of us were very disappointed with the food at the Bistro. Won't be coming back. Very expensive for just OK. Were there last summer and loved it! The food was amazing. The menu this time was limited and food disappointing. We were all wishing we had gone elsewhere. The place is gorgeous, staff is great. Our advice...stay outside."

  • "I"m not into wines so I like their tasting board of 3 wines to sample that comes with a small card with the names of the wines. The food selections are really excellent and very tasty."

  • "This was a great dining experience! Everything about it was top notch. From the beautiful atmosphere, the friendly employees, through the bruschetta, amazing salads, pasta entrees, delightful desserts to the after-dinner wine on the Piazza, we were continuously impressed. We will definitely return."

  • "What a wonderful dining experience! I had a friend coming into town and wanted to find somewhere different to go for dinner. We were both so impressed with the entire Gervasi experience. We had dinner at The Bistro and then sat out by the water. There was so much to see... Can't wait to go back again!"

  • "The Gervasi Vineyard is a pleasant suprise in Canton Ohio. The facility , food and service are all great and it was the perfect place for our family get together. Everyone enjoyed the wine and our meals and our waiter was knowledgeable about the wine and the food and his friendly personality toopped off the event. We will definitely be back for future family functions."

  • "the winery is very well done - great attention to detail - really good food with a wonderful atmosphere and the view / grounds is A+ Keep up the good work"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was wonderful and your place is gorgeous. Our waitress was not very good. She never came back and refilled the coffee and never asked if we wanted another glass of wine. At the end of the meal when she came back to get the payment she asked us if we needed change. I was a waitress and asking about refills is a must and asking if we needed change is a definite "NO"."

  • "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."

  • "Last weekend my boyfriend (now fiance) and I stayed at the Villas at Gervasi for two nights and dined at the Bistro both evenings. The first night's dining experience was much better than the second night, in large part due to our servers. The first night we were served by Natalie (I believe that was her name) and she was wonderful - attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, and overall charming. I highly recommend starting the evening off with doing a wine tasting or a wine flight. We sampled and shared both a red wine flight and a white wine flight and they were very good! The food was absolutely delicious, and we especially loved the Bistro chop salad. Overall it was an amazing night, especially since we got engaged after dinner!"

  • "The food was tasty, but I thought that there should have been more of it. For $36 and $38 for two meals, there should be more food. My menu item said the fillet was served over crab stuffed pasta, but there were only 2 of the pasta! I also did not like that the beverages were sold per bottle. I had iced tea, and I felt inhibited to drink a lot as I would have to pay for refill. Also, I assumed it was fresh brewed, which I would have preferred. The Bistro was beautiful. We enjoyed walking around ahead of time. The food was tasty. We liked the bread!"

  • "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."

  • "My wife an I were celebrating a wedding anniversary. We have friends that had been at the Winery before an asked them to join us as we had not yet had the pleasure. Our Server "Pat" was excellent. His demeanor, knowledge and timing were excellent. Our experience was so good, my wife an I returned three days later for lunch at the Crush House. We were again very pleased with our experience."
