Sovana Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
