Quiet table for conversation was arranged as requested. The red snapper entry with accompaniments was quite excellent. Cocktails at $14.00 a bit pricey. Server Kate was friendly and responsive. Mid course of Prie Fixe was tasty but skimpy. Coffee at $3.50 a cup was over the top pricewise. The tuna tartare and the crispy calamari starters (first course) extremely well done and tasty. We enjoyed our visit and the dining experience
I felt it was overrated. Highly recommended by friends, but a disappointment.
We were here once before and it was very good and they did not disappoint this time. The staff is very nice and helpful and the food is very good and the atmosphere is quaint and cozy.
Amazing food, great bar. We’ll be back!
Everything is so nice. We had Some great wine. The food was delicious! The ambiance is nice and relaxing. And the service was great! We will definitely be back😊
Sitting in the bar is a little louder then other parts of the restaurant.
It was a great dining experience.
Service was not the usual, drinks were awesome, soup was served cold. Food is very pricey for the portions but is excellent. Not our best experience at Sovana,.
We are vegetarian and the menu is great! The service was wondeful; he was very attentive. It was a bit noisey, it would be tough for the hard of hearing. the food made up for the noise and crowded seating. We arelocal and wil definately return.
Unbelievable service and food!! Drink menu is outstanding and unique.
My friends and I have celebrated our birthdays at Sovana for years. We always look forward to seeing the ever-changing and fabulous drink menu and to ordering the lunch special, which is a little bit of everything: soup, salad, sandwich, and dessert. Everyone is friendly there and the food is consistently great!
Corrine was wonderful!
Food was absolutely delicious
Took awhile to be seated and order taken
Waiter needed reminders
The tables are very close together and our table was in the middle of the room near the kitchen so it felt cramped and busy and noisy with servers bustling past constantly. So the ambiance wasn’t great. The food was satisfactory. Pumpkin date soup was excellent. I found the sauce on my sweet potato ravioli to be too salty to eat. Others were pleased with the mushroom ragu. Apple tart was wonderful; the ice creams were bland. So a mixed bag overall.
The staff was very friendly and the server was very knowledgeable about the food and wine selections. The food is fresh and delicious. We’ll be back.
Server, Jeannie was outstanding!!! Yummy food and wine!!!
Food outstanding great dinner. Always the specials are great along with the standards menu items
Our very favorite restaurant in the greater Philadelphia area. Food is always excellent and the service the best around. Only downside is that it is a noisy venue and sometimes challenging to carry on a dinner conversation.
Fabulous as always - best food - best drinks - best service !
This was our first time here. Everything was wonderful. The ambiance, the servers, and the food. We loved how all of the servers helped out with filling water, taking empty plates or whatever needed done at the table. The food is wonderful and I’m craving the squid ink pasta as I’m typing this. We will be back and it will be soon because I will be needing the pizza and the squid ink pasta sooner than later.
Absolutely love everything there every time we visit - only exception this time was that the Mac and cheese wasn’t as creamy or flavorful as prior experiences.
Service was amazing, food was great. They had something for the vegan and gluten free at our table! Impressive!
Very loud. Food was way too spicy. Didn’t charge it after complaint.
We are very lucky to have such an awesome restaurant so close to home. Service and food are always exceptional!!
Shorts Ribs (very small pieces), had a sour taste. It was tender that's about the only thing. Pasta special with "duck", poor thing. Came in a large soup bowl, couldn't tell it was duck, extremely dry, shredded like strings of rubber bands. Only think I enjoyed was there mushrooms appetizer.
Despite having a reservation, we were seated about 20 minutes after arriving due to a back up. We were all crowded around the hostess stand and front door because there was no where else to go and the bar was full.
Our server was wonderful, very friendly and welcoming. It was a busy night so wait times were a little long.
Food was well prepared and delicious (halibut was a bit overcooked).
Would return again, perhaps at a less busy time.
Quieter for 'old folks' in the outside tent - warm enough that night
I was sent an email that said my reservation was cancelled when in fact I did eat there Saturday night Please change the system to indicate that the reservation was used
Had to wait even though we arrived on time and were ultimately seated at a high top table in the bar area, but otherwise a great experience.
Absolutely love this place! We‘be only been here three times in four years because it’s far for us, and so we come when we go to Longwood Gardens, but it’s incredible every time. I give an A++++ to everything across the board- well-balanced cocktails, perfectly crafted dishes, impeccable service, and warm inviting ambience. Can’t wait to go again soon!!!
We were seated next to the door and it was very cold that day so we were uncomfortable. The restaurant was very busy and our water was not refilled quickly and once the food was delivered, no one came to check to see how we were.....
Great food. Creative, made with care. Loved the warm squash and kale salad, as well as the lentil soup. Service was just ok but I really like the feel of this restaurant. Tons of vegetarian options - but you can get good fish and meat as well.
We had an awesome lunch and our server Bailey was great!
Great food and great service. The specialty drinks were also great
We sat at the chefs table and got some free samples of food and glasses of champagne. We loved the atmosphere and menu choices. Drinks were delicious !
29 th Anniversary
Steak was tough and stringy. Don’t do the s’mores desert, it was very dry. This use to be our favorite restaurant about 10 yrs ago. For the prices and lack luster food I don’t think it’s worth the visit anymore. The atmosphere is buzzing when you go in but the delivery is sub par.
Without a doubt my favorite place.. the meal, the ambiance perfect from beginning to the finish. All the work and focus it takes to produce this experience repeatedly is so appreciated- many thanks Alice B
Wish that I didn't need a five hour drive to get here. If Sovana Bistro were convenient I would be a regular.
Service was as friendly, in a professional way, as could be. Noticeable that they are rightfully proud of their products - both drink and food.
The menu is inventive, the service is attentive, but not obtrusive and the music wa low enough that you could talk with your friends. I would definitely go back again.
