Sovana Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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
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
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Sovana Bistro. We all did the Prix Fixe menu and it was a great choice. It says petite appetizers but they give you plenty. I loved the entree and dessert options. I like the laid back take your time atmosphere. They are in no rush to get you out the door. The staff wants you to enjoy your meal. I would highly recommend for a date night, special occasion. We will be back because I would love to try the pizza! Overall great first experience and outstanding restaurant in Unionville.
This is my third time dining here and my third excellent meal. I had the wild boar pasta as an appetizer and salmon grilled on a cedar plank as my main course . Both items were delicious and perfectly cooked.
The service was also terrrific and our waitress was especially attentive and helpful.
I took my daughter and her two friends from college visiting from NC...The food came out late...portions were smaller than last time I dined there ( been there 5 times in two years)....fish special came out cold...beet salad had three pieces of beets and an ocean full of kale.
Stick to the pizza...great pizza
...I don't mind spending money on good food....I eat out often and rarely complain, but I need no complain. I dropped $350 and feel like I was robbed..
Truth be told, this absolutely my favorite restaurant. My husband and I typically go for special occasions as it can be a little pricey, but Sovana is 100% worth every single penny. From start to finish it is one of the most incredible dining experiences in Chester County. THANK YOU!
Food was very good. Amuse bouche (pickled veg over blueberry) was tasty and reminded us of meals in Japan. Mezze appetizer was a great start. Hot fresh pita (more like lavash) was perfect as was the dip. I had gnocchi... very well done and very light - only critique is that I didn’t expect a tomato-based sauce and would have preferred a creme or oil/parm dressing. As with many places, hard to know what flavors to expect from the description... hubs had monkfish. Very good - no complaints. Dessert was butterscotch cake. Exactly the liquid center you want - would have loved for it to be hotter and butterscotch was just a smidge grainy, but really very good. Fairly crowded - maybe too many people for the size of the restaurant... would have liked a bit more ambience/coziness... but not unobtrusively loud either. Will def be back.
