This restaurant has always been one of my favorites. It always has a good menu and the specials are usually really good. The service was slow at first but it got better once we were seated and we had a waiter come to our table. The seating outside on the patio is much better than inside the restaurant because it seems more spacious
Excellent as usual. Always great for lunch or dinner. Always some wonderful new creations on the menu.
We had a fabulous meal!
I have never had a bad meal here. I have had lunch and dinner at Sovana Bistro, most frequently for lunch. The service is wonderful! Everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and to see if you need anything. I continually recommend Sovana Bistro to my friends.
The wrong meal came out and our server never checked back to see if it was ok so we never got it fixed. Also, one of our party members is gluten free and got home and was terribly sick so something wasn't gluten free, as advertised, or there was a mistake in the kitchen. We love SB so we will be back but we were definitely bummed on this occasion.
Not as good as we expected and/or menu items sounded. Food was delivered warm, not hot. Portion size for the money was not good on a couple of the "appetizer" portion entrees. One person's Prixe Fix menu salad was so small, might as well not be called a salad, and we were told that was the "only" small portion of the prixe fix, but the entree was more the appetizer size as well.
Entrees didn't seem to live up to the description and ingredients listed on the menu.
Overall, a little disappointing. Probably wouldn't make the long drive again.
Everything was absolutely wonderful! From the service to the food! Only complaint is being seated at a table for two gives you almost no room to eat.
This is one of our longtime favorite restaurants. Whether we are there for lunch, a party or dinner in the bar we are always pleased with zzthe food, service and atmosphere!
We have been going to Sovana Bistro for many years . The food and service were excellent. However, the last two visits have been disappointing. This week my wife and I had two specials. The mushroom crepes with shaved black truffles were Luke warm and lacked any taste or aroma of truffle. The bronzino was overlooked and the lemon and oil were missing.
Hopefully they can get back on track. But we won’t be back foe a while.
we come back home with a big smile after dinner at Sovana !!
love the food and the service there. They seem to know what they are doing !!
This is our local go to place
We love the food and the atmosphere. Last Friday was no ex exception. We often share the cheese plate over drinks.
Had the New York strip. Mediocre. It's not a steak house. Would recommend the salads and bistro foods however.
After a lovely evening walking around Longwood Gardens Christmas, we enjoyed great company, food & wine ! Always enjoy the creative, well presented plate. Cozy atmosphere ! I enjoyed the mushroom tart and salmon as my main dish. Lentil soup was enjoyed by a few others and when the burgers arrived, they were happy. The beet salad and then steak was another option for my husband. Desserts... perfect way to end a great night. The only thing that was not up to par, was the service ! Not as attentive as usual, had to ask many times for knives, bread, and other items. Disappointed in service, compared to the norm!! But could have been a busy Thursday and they were overwhelmed.
Location was excellent to Longwood Gardens experience. Easy to make reservations on Open Table. The dining was was wonderful and delicious! The servers were accommodating and excellent at their positions. The food selection was creative. Can't wait to go again!
wonderful luncheon before trip to Longwood Gardens
The best in town! Always great food and service. The fish tacos at lunch are amazing not to downplay the rest of the menu which is exciting and always prepared with a flare
Unique cocktails, exceptional entrees, and a festive rustic atmosphere. After enjoying the lights of Longwood, dinner at Sovana was the perfect way to end date night, and an excellent start to the holiday season.
Got their special for the day. The artichoke soup was okay, the bacon cheddar grilled cheese was ok. Salad was wonderful, pear and greens as was the mini carrot cake.
Not the best Ive had from here so left a little disappointed.
Very good food and ambiance for this late evening get together with friends. Service was a little slow at first and then a bit too chummy for my tastes but efficient nonetheless. This restaurant is one of our local favorites and offers a variety of out-of-the-ordinary dishes along with a wide selection of wines.
We have never had a meal that was less than wonderful. The menu is creative, the food (and drinks) delicious, and the staff generally excellent. We especially love the patio area which is abailable in all seasons. It tends to be less crowded and quieter. Always a treat!
Always enjoy my visits to Sovana Bistro. Like to try their specials usually because they are always different & very good. Went to celebrate my birthday & they brought out my desert with a lit candle. It was a nice surprise.
Was seated on the patio. Unfortunately a large table with six very young and noisy boys made for less than ideal dining experience.
Always excellent food. Creative offerings. Very good service.
Our favorite restaurant!
Sovana never disappoints! Been coming here for 12 years & it's still a favorite for my husband & I.
Get together with a friend and wanted good interesting drinks and quality food. Sovana was the perfect choice. Both had the pumpkin bisque- fantastic. I had an Apple based champagne cocktail and she had something with honey and pear and other delicious things. I had the Brussels sprouts fig pizza which I can't resist anytime its available. Friend had the pasta special with interesting autumn ingredients. Service was perfect. Only complaint would be a family with 3 young children behind us and youngest one was running around and climbing on the back of my friends chair knocking our coats on the floor etc. Not child's fault. To me it is not a restaurant for young children. Then 3 couples came to the table next to us and were so loud my friend and I had to give up trying to talk and wait we couldn't even hear us for dessert order. All in all a very wonderful meal and friendly service.
Black Sea bass was outstanding and having Fred service us is always enjoyable. Thanks
The service here is always good yet still relaxed. Nothing to intimidate and eager to please. The food is excellent. Five stars. It is a bit pricey but worth it. Wild boar doesn't come cheap. I highly recommend.
We were meeting an old friend for lunch. The Kennett Square area is about half-way between our respective homes, so we chose Sovana. We had a noon reservation and had to be back in our town for a 3 PM appointment, giving us a solid 90 minutes for lunch. We arrived a few minutes before noon and were seated promptly. Our waiter came to the table and offered water. The water arrived and then we were left alone for the next 30 or so minutes. Finally, after asking someone to help us, our waiter arrived again and we ordered appetizers and lunch. The apps arrived sometime later. Mine was supposed to be served with bread, which came out after I had finished about half of the appetizer. Again, we waited for our meal to arrive.
By the time the food finally came, we had to ask for the check and hurry through our lunch in order to get back for our appointment.
The food was very tasty and the ambiance is very nice but the service ruined the experience.
The restaurant was kind enough to recognize that we had a very long wait and did not charge for the appetizers, which was nice but I would have happily paid for the appetizers in order to have more attentive service
My first visit - the food was VERY good with ample servings. Good Wine List. Service was prompt and courteous. Noise level was moderate-loud. Will definitely return.
We met another couple for dinner on a Friday night at 7:30 and the place was packed so it was noisy. However, the vibe was great. Lots of energy and a really fun feeling. Our waiter was top notch. Really impressive service that never interrupted our conversation. Food was great. Mixed up apps. All really tasty. All in all while a bit noisy you will definitely enjoy a great meal and gr at service
The food was delicious! The ambiance was perfect. Fantastic selection of ciders.
This very noisy space was a disappointment. Rather than a craft cocktail bistro, it seemed to be neighborhood shopping plaza bar with pizza that seemed to be left under a heat lamp to sap any flavor it might have had. Good size wine pour though.
Unique choices with wonderful flavors. Visiting the area from out of town. We will definitely go back again.
Reservation noted and we were seated quickly
Attentive, yet not intrusive
Had the half-panini special which included 3 supplemental courses...soup, salad and dessert. It was perfectly prepared and very satisfying. Waiter was excellent and sensitive to it being a business lunch and maintained perfect minimally intrusive pace.
Another great night at the Bistro. Just a fantastic place that never disappoints.
This has been one of my favorites for many years. I still enjoy the restaurant and the food and service are excellent. However. the menu has become somewhat limited and I found myself settling for the special.
As usual, dinner at Sovana Bistro was a wonderful experience.
The restaurant is about average for the area, We eat out often and have been here many times.
Not a good as it use to be. Better option in the area is Antica
Very busy, loud. With Open Table was able to get reservation. Excellent Merlot.
