Our waitress was lovely and the food was immaculate. Pork with caramel apple sauce stole the show. But the wine, the bread, the fingerling potatoes and mushrooms were all superb. I was also relieved to see a multitude of safety precautions being taken, which made my mid-pandemic dinner much less stressful. Would willingly travel more than 2 hours for that pork again. Thank you! Highly recommend :)

Made a reservation for a Sunday evening as part of our stay. Definitely get a reservation! Greeted immediately and seated ahead of our reservation time. Tables were well-spaced and the ambience was relaxing and quiet. Maybe due to fewer tables, but the entire feeling is upscale/casual. Not pretentious at all-server was fantastic and very welcoming. Food was fantastic! Reasonable prices imho and wine was great as well. Can not wait to get back in warmer weather and enjoy the piazza!

Food was excellent, as was the wine. Only complaint is that we stood outside of the restaurant, waiting to be let in for about 10 minutes in the rain/cold, even though we had confirmed reservations.

A real treat of a dinner with proper atmosphere and ambiance. Service was excellent as was dinner, with my choice, the walleye pike with garlic mash and capers having a wonderful, flavorful taste worth the effort.

I have eaten at this restaurant before and it was always so amazing. This time the pizza had such a buttery taste we could not eat it. I was very disappointed in the food with the amount of money I spent there.

We were charged for a bottle of wine that we did not order. We called to report and were told we would receive a gift card. We have not received gift card.

Thank you for the review and following up regarding this matter. I would like to again apologize for this. I spoke with our Assistant Manager in The Bistro, who you spoke with on Saturday. He did mail you a gift card which went out with the mail on Monday mid-morning. It should have arrived either yesterday or today but in the event that it has not please reach out directly and we will get this resolved. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to your return!

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. We were glad they were following the proper protocol during this difficult time during the Covid situation. The meal was delicious! Having traveled to Italy, it was great that my meal was up to par which is very hard to find in Ohio. Wonderful! We will be back.

Sorry I do not remember the name of our server but she did a very nice job...Friendly, knowledgeable, considerate and helpful. Everyone in our party felt safe with the use of masks, social distancing, plexiglass divides and what appeared to be reduced patrons.

Thanks for a good job!

Second time celebrating here. Was worried it might not be a fun experience with all the Covid restrictions. Shouldn't have worried. Everybody is a pro here. This definitely going to be our spot for special occasions.

Nice atmosphere at a beautiful winery. Food and wine are excellent although expect higher prices. We had the Beef Short Ribs and Blackened Salmon and both were delicious. Try the meat and cheese tray for an appetizer. Would recommend making reservations.

The Bistro is really a special place for a special meal. The food is exquisite. Beautifully presented, plentiful but not excessive amounts. The beef shortribs, tomahawk pork chop, and filet oscar were all excellent. The wine list is extensive, most of it made on the premises at Gervasi and very good quality. The prices are high, but for a special meal, it is well worth it.

The atmosphere was perfect for a scenic lunch for two. Our waitress was friendly, patient and knowledgeable of the menu and wine pairing. We have recommended that location for other social gatherings.

Originally taken to unpleasant surroundings in the basement. Asked for table near windows and was easily accommodated. Server was wonderful. Bistro is impressive. Enjoyed appetizers. Short ribs were ok. Will probably return during daylight for the atmosphere.

The pierogies were not good. I have had frozen ones that were better. Wo were stuck upstairs in a loft sitting within a foot of a tub of dirty dishes and glasses. It was our 20th anniversary celebration. We asked to be moved. They did not move us. Our server was lovely though and saved the evening.
