The crab roll appetizer was smaller than a cigarette...the vol au vent appetizer was big enough for a large meal..very inconsistent sizes...if crab is too expensive..skip it..but dont serve one teaspoon crabmeat and call it an appetizer....absurd

A friend and I went for dinner. We ended up splitting an appetizer, a salad, and an entree and still had leftovers to take home. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful in answering allergen questions. The atmosphere was very nice, and sitting near the window, we had a pleasant view.

We were there to celebrate 2 birthdays. We enjoyed it so much on a cold day we decided to celebrate the next batch of birthdays there in August when we can view it when everything is in bloom. Great food, great atmosphere, great service.

Always love coming to the Bistro. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. The filet I had was cooked perfectly and delicious. Wine is amazing, in particular the Velluto! The Nutella pizza is a must!

I've traveled quite a bit and this rates as one of my top dining experiences. We started at the Crush House with the dry flight tasting and apps. The Risotto Cakes are off the chart delicious. After an hour and a half of tasting, we went to the Bistro and had a fantastic, romantic dinner in a quite booth where they had accommodated our request for a more private table. Every bite of food was fresh and delicious and not a scrap left on our plates. Will definitely drive the two hours to return.

Our waitress was AMAZING! she had great suggestions for wines that paired with the meal we were considering. We had the pasta bolognese, a ribeye which was a special, and a baked brie salad all of which were phenomenal. They paced the meal well, allowing us time to enjoy each course. Excellent dining experience!!

First time visiting with a group of 6. It was the most amazing food we have ever had. Each one of our meals was mouth watering and bursting with flavor. Those chefs are truly gifted.

Our server was flawless. Before you needed anything or even before you new that you needed anything it was there ready for you. It was smooth from start to finish. Not one complaint from anyone about there meals, there’s were only sounds of enjoyment lol.

Oh and you better leave room for dessert because IT IS WORTH IT!!! We tried four different types and each one was so delicious and perfect Again, Not one complaint from anyone about the desserts, there were only sounds of enjoyment lol.

Every person ate all there food on the plate and no take home box s were needed! Great portions.

Thank you for an amazing first impression, we will be back!!!

The food was excellent and the waitress was very good and personable. I wasn’t too happy with the table we were seated at. The table was near the stair case as well as the restrooms so there was a lot of foot traffic and not much privacy. I would recommend that you remove that particular table. I should have asked for a different table... too late!

I'm sorry to say that we were very disappointed with Gervasi's overall. Despite the wonderful ambience & decor, we found the food to be average to poor (at best), and the dessert was downright horrible. Maybe our visit landed on a bad night? I'm not sure but I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

This was our first visit to the Bistro and we are definitely planning a return visit. We live in the Dayton area so it's a little bit of a drive, but certainly well worth it. The food was excellent, the service was perfect, and great recommendations were given for the wine selections. We enjoyed our time their immensely.

Our service was outstanding but the food was not as good as in the past- we had to send back the pizza twice- first time -- burnt- second time- raw :( The gelato tastes more like ice cream and would not recommend at all- the crostini that comes out as bread is absolutely delicious as always- highly recommend the braised short ribs and the squash soup was outstanding! Consistency just wasn't dependable this time around- but still a beautiful restaurant and wonderful service- hopefully they get back to A+ for food consistency!

Unfortunately, the 3 drink card showing the types of wine made at Gervasi’s is misleading. We thought we were buying a 750ML, but in fact it was 375ML. I guess it’s let the buyer beware at Gervasi’s, too. Too bad.

Wonderful meal, salad was a treat in itself, set the tone for a truly exceptional dining experience. Our server was exactly what all servers should strive to be, attentive & very knowledgeable when needed and totally invisible so as not to interrupt the meal. Heartily endorse, and have already recommended to several friends. Will be back soon.

The young man who greeted us Saturday night was odd. In a bland manner, the first and only thing he said to my wife and I as we entered. "What can I do for you". No hello, good evening, thanks for visiting, just a bland attitude, almost like we interupted his conversation that he was having with a fellow employee. He didn't even smile. We felt like we didn't belong. Other than that , two thumbs up. We had a great waitress!

The food was great as usual! Our service was horrible! We waited forever to get our drinks....at least a half hour after our food came out! Not just once but twice that happened Said she would get us fresh bread and never did. She didn’t refill our waters...we had to ask someone else to do it for us after they sat empty for over 15 min.

We've dined at Gervasi before, so we were prepared for a two-hour experience. In the event, we arrived at 6:45 pm and did not leave until 9:25. As you can calculate, we actually had 45 min of "waiting" between courses and it was noticeable and became a part of our experience. Our waiter told us that they were short on help and there were apologies, etc., but I need to be honest in letting you know that the "delays" were excessive and impacted our experience. We'll be back, but it will be on the back patio in summer over pizza. Roger & Lorrie

My absolute favorite restaurant in NE Ohio. Always friendly service, delicious dishes, fantastic wine (the truscano and Cabernet are superb), beautiful atmosphere. We visited until 15 minutes after closing time and they gave us no indication that we should leave, and they even let us back in an hour after closing because I forgot to buy a gift card.
