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.

Diner Reviews
  • "The ambience was nice and elegant yet very homey in style. Many reviews said that the noise level is a bit on the high side, but once we stepped into the restaurant I realized that the noise level isn't too high at all and very appropriate because it added to the ambience. Our wait staff was very intuitive to our needs, very knowledgeable of the menu and the wine list, and their timing was perfect so that they weren't there all the time to disturb our dinner yet always around when you needed them. The waiting time for the food was very minimal and the food was very fresh and flavorful. We had and highly recommend the mussels in the white wine cream sauce and the Tuscan beef short ribs. Find time to walk the grounds because it is beautiful."

  • "I took out of town guests (table of 6) and the overall experience was excellent -- we ordered everything from pizza to scallops and everything was very good... antipasti salad excellent, asparagus on puff pastry was soggy and bland. The lobster mac was excellent, the scallops were seared to perfection although the accompanying shrimp were over cooked. The braised short ribs perfect and good reviews on both pizzas. Over all a fun time in a great atmosphere our server was outstanding offering opinions and recommendations."

  • "I brought my wife to Gervasi for her birthday. We sat by the window overlooking the pond - the view was gorgeous. Our waiter, Abraham, was very attentive and helpful with making menu choices. I had come earlier in the day to deliver a birthday card that I wanted put into my wife's menu and presented at the table - the staff made it happen and my wife was completely surprised. Our meals were excellent and dessert hit the spot. A home run for a special birthday. "

  • "The two hour experience was well worth the money spent. Our waiter did an outstanding job of making us feel right at home as well as explaining the menu. The food ... EXCELLENT! The restoration of the Bistro demonstrated an eye to detail that only enhanced the ambiance. We have already decided to book our family Christmas dinner. "

  • "Everything was excellent! My only disappointment was where we were seated. I thought we would be upstairs in the main dining area and we were instead seated downstairs on the side without the fireplace. Next time I will know and request where I would like to sit. Otherwise the food, wine and service were outstanding. We will definitely return. Excited for the warmer weather to eat outside and to visit the Crush House! "

  • "Our dinner was excellent. We didnt have to wait for our food. My dinner and my wifes dinner was cooked to our liking and very delicious. Our server was very polite and was well versed in the menu and wines. He took the time to explain the entire menu which helped us pick out meals. Your food and service made your restaurant a great present for my wife on her birthday and also created a wonderful atmosphere for dining"

  • "My waitress Holly was nothing but amazing Sunday night. She was able to give great recommendations on the menu. My dad tried a flight of wine for the first time due to her recommendation. Our glasses of water were never empty. She checked in on us constantly which was great just to make sure everything was okay. The 12oz pork porterhouse was so tastey and flavorful, it was another great recommendation from Holly. Holly throughout the night was able to have personal conversations with us, it was great I felt like I was able to get to know her."

  • "I have wanted to go to Gervasi for some time. I took the early reservation of 4:15 because I didn't want the 8:30. Next time I will reserve earlier. We came for my husband's birthday with my son and daughter in law. They are picky eaters and loved it. Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. It lived up to our expectations. We'll have to come back when we can eat outside. I am sorry it isn't closer to us in Bath."

  • "I really loved the vineyard grounds. It was a great place to walk around and enjoy the surroundings. The food, however, I thought was pretty mediocre. While it was nicely prepared, it overrelied on cream and butter. I was hoping for a more foodie experience, but the menu lacked creativity."

  • "One of our favorite restaurants! You'll feel as if you've been transported to Italy. Food and wines are delicious. This is where we always take our out of town house guests"

  • "Great evening. Waiter was excellent. Meal was hot and delicious. We had a wonderful evening with friends. Hard to believe there is such a gem in our own backyard! Gervasi could be right out of Napa - better than some wineries we have visited there."

  • "Dined here for our 1 year anniversary, food was spectacular as was the wine. My wife has a gluten sensitivity and the staff was very helpful in pointing out her options, and there were plenty of Gluten-Free options available. Restaurant was bustling and louder than we had imagined - not necessarily a place to go for a quiet romantic dinner - but we enjoyed the ambiance. Two minor gripes: They did bring us out a special unannounced dessert for it being our anniversary, but then just told us "yeah, it's not gluten-free." So...how was my wife supposed to enjoy it? It was almost more of a tease. Also, we wanted to leave a tip on our gift card and this seemed to highly annoy the waitress. Overall a very good experience."

  • "Wonderful experience. Will return again.........And again.......and again."

  • "This was our first visit and we were extremely impressed with the wine, food and service- the whole package really. Our only regret from the evening is that we have just discovered this place as we are about to leave the area. We definitely have put it on the "must do again" list before we go."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "First time there, I would have preferred dining upstairs instead of the wine cellar. Maybe you could ask the guests if they have a preference as to where to sit. The menu was a little limited for my taste. I would have liked to have tried a good lasagna, but not on menu or a good Filet steak, also not on menu. Excellent portions of pasta though."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I don't know how you could make this place any better. Top notch all the way and despite what people say, it's not that expensive. As a matter of fact I'd call it a bargain for what you get."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had a wonderful evening for my wife's birthday. the atmosphere, food and wine were all excellent. they even brought out a surprise dessert. The only criticism I have is that although we were running late and arrived 15 minutes later than our reservation,(we had called ahead to let them know), our table was not ready. We went to the bar to order wine, but there was really no place to sit--so we just kind of hovered around and it was kind of awkward. After that, it was great!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We had a group of 12 and the service was impeccable, food was delicious and overall we truly enjoyed our time at the Bistro. It was a special occasion (my husband's 40th) and they provided a dessert on the house which was truly kind and special."

  • "Just celebrated my 24th birthday with my boyfriend at Gervasi! Our evening started out with an Exclusive Pairing Tour, where our guide took us through the winery and ending with a food/wine pairing. Everything was so delicious. After our tour, we hung out in the new Crush House, which has a very relaxed, exclusive atmosphere. Our night ended with dinner at the Bistro. We sat downstairs by the fireplace, and it was unbelievably romantic and cozy. Our server was very friendly and made sure everything was perfect. The desert was even brought out with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate. The entire night was romantic and absolutely perfect, thanks to Gervasi and its amazing facilities and staff. Can't wait to go back this summer."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The only complaint I have about Gervasi is the alcohol situation. The only wine they have is their own (which isn't atypical of a "winery"), and it is very average and now overpriced. That could be over come with a stellar beer and mixed drinks list. Unfortunately, the beer list is awful and you cannot get liquor. The food is as good as anywhere in the area, however, the alcohol selection severely detracts from the overall experience."

  • "We always have an amazing time at Gervasi - every single time we go! We celebrated my birthday on this trip with my daughters (11 and 16), husband and my mother. The atmosphere is always great for everyone, the service was excellent, the wine and food amazing as always. We look forward to our visits at Gervasi for special occasions and just to get away! (and stay in a villa just once and you will be hooked forever! already planning our next overnight visit and dinner) Thank you for being here, Gervasi!"

  • "Gervasi is my boyfriends favorite restaurant, but we live over an hour away so we don't frequent as much as we would like. The occasion for the drive out was our Anniversary. I used the website to book our reservation, it was quick easy and convenient. Our dinner was great, the wine was wonderful and our waiter delivered excellent service. If I had to have one complaint, our table was located in a seemingly awkward spot next to the stair case, I expected a nicer table seeing as we had made a reservation. Next time I will make a note in the special request section of the reservations form. over all a great night as always"

  • "My husband and I are fairly frequent guests at The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard and have always had an excellent dining experience whether we have eaten inside at the Bistro or outside on the Piatta. The food and wine are excellent and the ambiance is warm and inviting. My husband had the special 16oz ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. He loved it from the very first bite and even asked the manager for the recipe. (she didn't give up the recipe, but did tell us that it would be on the new Spring menu). I had the chitarra pasta with shrimp and scallops in an olive oil based sauce with fresh cherry tomatoes and arugula. It was delicious and very filling. The scallops were perfectly seared and melted in your mouth."

  • "My husband and I chose The Bistro at Gervasi to celebrate his retirement after 43 years of work. I had requested a special table near the fireplace and we were happy to find that is where we were seated. The food was wonderful, as always. Our server is what really set the evening apart! He was the perfect mix of friendly and attentive without being intrusive. He even surprised us at the end of the meal with a complimentary serving of gelato! I am giving this my highest recommendation!"
