Gervasi Vineyard & Italian Bistro offers Northeast Ohio a memorable destination for wine lovers, diners, families, businesses and tourists. Gervasi is one of the few special places where beauty, tradition, comfort and appreciation for wine and fresh food connect. Wine varieties are among the best in Ohio. 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. Highlights include a marketplace specialty store, event pavilion, walking paths, outdoor dining and yard game activities for relaxation and fun. We do have a community table and upstairs lounge area available for walk-ins as well, with the full menu.

Ordered a wedge salad blue cheese and it came back with sour creme on it. Not very good. Also desert chocolate was very hard to bite into not very good. Also ordered special and it was suppose to be a Tibet which I always order and love at other restaurants but I dont think this was a rib eye It wasn't very good. Other than that my wife and I love the restaurant and come all the time !

I love Gervasi's because of the ambiance and there are many things to do especially now with the distillery open. However, this is twice in a row that the food was ok, not good, just ok. We had the crab rolls for one of our appetizers and you get two rolls for $12.00. I think they were way over priced, especially since we couldn't taste the crab. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the wines and the menu. She was attentive without being over bearing. We went to the distillery after dinner for coffee. The atmosphere was great. It would be a nice place to bring a date.

Waiter was awesome! Very attentive and knowledgeable . Took good care of us! Food was excellent. Great atmosphere and could actually enjoy table conversation without blaring music. One of the few restaurants that you can actually enjoy an evening with friends talking without yelling across the table. Enjoyable evening!

The food was pretty good and the service as well. We went there for a Christmas present for family. You will require reservations to get in. It is speedy with the reservations. Your table will be ready. With a family of 5 with 3 children 5 and under, this is very nice not to have to wait. Kids menu is nice. Not junk food. Very impressed what they give to children to eat. Fun and tasty. Overall recommended, but expect to pay a little more then a chain restaurant.

My first experience at the Bistro at Gervasi was a very good one. Crab cake appetizer was a 10 out of 10- lights out delicious! Rack of lamb was cooked perfectly. Rustic elegant decor. Definitely a great place to go for a special occasion

We've been to The Bistro at Gervasi many times, but this was the first time we had also stayed on property in one of the villas. We came to celebrate our anniversary, and the food and drinks did not disappoint. We had already tasted some wine at the Crush House, so we opted for cocktails with dinner and The Smoking Gun and Godmother were both delicious. My salmon was cooked to perfection and my husband had the filet. It's our favorite restaurant to visit in the Canton area.

We have been to The Bistro many times. I’ve asked multiple times to be in front of the fireplace because if you sit by the windows there is a draft . I specifically asked not to sit by the windows and was sat there . I still have yet to sit in front of the fireplace.When asked to switch to a table that was empty (and stayed empty till we left) the said they were full. Otherwise everything else has always been excellent . It is our favorite place to go :).

Our only complains were we called days in advance to request a table next to fireplace due to celebrating a special occasion and that was not fulfilled.
Also our meal came before our bread and bar drinks.
We did however have an exceptional waitress. You

We had the most delicious dinners at The Bistro. My husband’s corn and bacon risotto was incredible and my lobster ravioli was truly delicious. The ambiance was remarkable, as we had a cozy seat by the fire. We had a wonderful and memorable evening.

The food was excellent! My husband had the short ribs and I had pasta bolognese. Terra, our server, was superb! She gave us the history of Gervasi and told us about the villas, hotel and summer activities on the patio. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We definitely will be coming back with friends!

We had a great time at Gervasi! The service and atmosphere can’t be beat. The food was tasty! Not the best Italian cuisine I’ve had, but still delicious. Though I do wish the asparagus served with my filet mignon would have been prepared with a little more flair. It was simply adequately steamed and placed on the plate. I love asparagus too- one of my favorite foods- so it was a bummer. But beyond that everything was delicious. Duck ravioli was splendid, roasted beet Salad was quite good as well. Wine offerings were delightful! I had a glass of the Barbera which was deep, woody, and aged with notes of strawberry and oak. Paired excellently with my filet, which was cooked perfectly rare. My girlfriend and I were overall impressed and had lots of fun! Thanks Gervasi!

Enjoyed our evening on the grounds of Gervasi..,started at the Still House for cocktails, drinks there came out really slow and actually we never received one of them because it took too long but since it just opened we will give a break on that, the new venue was beautiful and had a great vibe...at the Bistro the ambiance was perfect for a Christmas get together with our family...the only complaint we had was the chicken piccata that was served family style and five of us out of 8 had ordered it...the dish was tasteless, the sauce was thick and had zero lemon flavor...It was very disappointing...the management did comp our table desserts which was nice. I am only putting this out here because if you love chicken piccata like I do and know what it is suppose to taste like do not order it. My daughter had the salmon and said was fantastic! The appetizers were great, pierogis and stuffed peppers. Would this keep me from coming back? No...but I would be more picky on my dinner choices.
