Had a fantastic anniversary dinner at The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard. Such a beautiful atmosphere & amazing staff. So much attention is given to the presentation and taste of the food. Can’t wait to go back and celebrate more life events!

The overall experience was wonderful. Atmosphere, surroundings, service, all rate a 5 star in my opinion. I I also have to mention though the noise level is a little high. I think its the acoustics in the main building that account for this. Just normal conversation by all the people make it a little noisy. That being said so many other components of the evening were first rate and more than made up for the noise.

The Bistro and our stay at Gervasi Winery was very nice, and reasonably priced. The food at the Bistro was very good. The only thing that would have made it better was our seats. We were seated in the basement wine cellar area. With so many great views, our seat were a little disappointing. The next time I will request a better seat. Overall experience at Gervasi was very good.

We had a delightful time at Gervasi Vineyard. Reminded us of a beautiful place we stayed in Tuscany called IL Falconiere. Bella! The dining at the Bistro was really good as was the service.

My brother and I brought our mom for a late Mother’s Day dinner on Tuesday. Everything was perfect, from the service to the meal, wine and desert. Ruby never let our water go empty and was such a help with the menu. We will definitely be coming back

We waited a long time for our food.
Server did not come to check on us.
It was a Tuesday night - not very busy.
We were 8 people sitting at a 6 person table... it was very cramped.

Low marks because they were super busy for Mothers Day. Appetizer and salad were not good. Way too much dressing on the salad. Couldnt eat it. Our entrees were delicious Pork Chop and Chicken Campanelli. Our server was way too busy. They definitely needed more help that day. This is not their norm.

Been here multiple times and food/service are excellent. This time food still excellent but waitress a real dud. Cannot believe this is tolerated at a restaurant like this. She seemed to get mad that we didn’t order alcoholic beverages or appetizers. I also ordered take home when I placed our order. When I got the bill and asked about the take home she said she forgot to order it. She also didn’t hesitate to tell us she couldn’t afford to eat there? Seems she had other issues...

The bistro is gorgeous. Nice and quiet. Excellent ambiance. Unfortunately the food and service was not commiserate to price. We waited almost 2 hours for our food. Over an hour for our appetizers. No communication from the wait staff or management. We didn’t make a stink of it, but we’re very frustrated. The food was ok. Not great. Defiantly not a $50 steak and $25 pasta. I would consider going back just to see if it was a fluke, but it defiantly didn’t measure up to the recommendations.

We were in the basement so not as desirable as the main floor. Food was great but service was fair. We sat with finished plates for at least 15 minutes before they were taken away.

three of us had the fish special--it was described as similar to grouper--which all of us were very familiar with. it was "fishy"smelling and had a consistency closer to swordfish --very dry--not flaky like a grouper--one of the three didn't eat a second bite.

poorly presented

The grounds at Gervasi are amazing. Easily worth the visit just for that. We had the stuffed dates appetizer at the coffee house which was wonderful. Then a beautiful walk to the Bistro for dinner. The Bistro's food was good but not outstanding. Ambiance was very nice. The big disappointment was the service which fell very short of the mark. We ordered drinks and it took almost 15 minutes until we saw our waitress again. she did not have our drinks yet so we ordered dinner. Drinks came later. I ordered a taste of the wheated bourbon but the sample came so late that I didn't order the follow up drink. We had the pear salad which was fantastic. Then for dinner - the pasta bolognase which was good and the pasta with shrimp and scallops which was just ok. Scallops were over cooked and pasta was also over cooked and mushy. We shared the flan for dessert which was ok. In closing, we had a lovely birthday dinner primarily because of the amazing grounds and beautiful surroundings. Worth the drive from Cleveland for that. Our meal fell short of the mark. A bit disappointing for such an amazing spot where the owners clearly setout to spare no expense on each and every detail.

We have been to Gervasi's on numerous occasions and have always been more than satisfied with everything. Food, service, ambience. We took time to stroll the grounds afterwards to enjoy the beauty. When there is any type of special occasion, Gervasi's is usually where we bring our guests.

I surprised my husband with a trip to Ohio for him to visit the Pro football Hall of Fame for his 40th birthday. I made reservations at The Bistro for dinner and it was wonderful! The restaurant was beautiful and the food was great! Not to mention an amazing waitress that provided great info on the food and wines. Overall it was a great experience and I’d recommend this place to anyone traveling to this city.

It was fantastic, as always. It was a bit loud because of Prom. I did not realize that it was prom weekend when I made the reservation. If I had, I may have chosen a later time. Otherwise, everything was perfect as it always is there. We will definitely be back soon.

I was upset with the hostess I talked to on the phone. She didn’t want to be accommodating with adding an extra person to our reservation. Luckily, there was a sweet blonde girl who offered us a different table so I didn’t have to hold my son. The waitress we had was amazing. She was so great with my children and very helpful with any menu questions. Also, everyone’s meal was absolutely fantastic. We couldn’t be more pleased!
