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.

It was very crowded in the Bistro. The bar area is very small and you could not even get a drink while you were waiting for your table. Our waiter was very good and the food was good. We also took the carriage ride and honestly it wasn't worth it. You pay $10 per person to drive around the parking lot -- nothing to see not even Christmas lights.

We waited nearly 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Then, nobody came to serve our table for over ten minutes until we flagged down another server to ask for some attention. A manager finally came to pour water and take drink orders. No apologies or acknowledgement of a, thus far, poor experience.

It was all better from there when our server Kira finally came by a rescued the evening with outstanding service!

We were seated in the lower room and I much more prefer upstairs. Next time I will be sure to specify that. It was so hot down there that we were very uncomfortable. This is the only time I’ve ever been a bit disappointed Dining there. The food was great and having the carolers was wonderful!!

It was my husbands birthday and the waiter acknowledged that but we did not get the complimentary birthday dessert that we have always enjoyed for special occasions. Too bad, it’s been a nice tradition for us. But Gervasi food and atmosphere around the holidays is the best!

I am writing this review for OpenTable - the site used to make reservations.
The reservation process was easy, they even sent reminders.
The only issue of the entire evening was upon arrival, one of the two staff members at the front end couldn't find our reservation. The other one started tapping away on his screen and quickly found it. Not sure how that was even an issue...
The waitress we had was great - friendly and made a lot of suggestions.
We were celebrating our anniversary and even got a special surprise when we ordered dessert.
Great experience.

Server (Christin was on the receipt) was grouchy and not very attentive. We were told in the Marketplace that we would receive double loyalty rewards. She said, "You do know you can't use that (card) tonight, don't you?" I said that we had been told about double points. Her response was, "That's news to me." And she walked away. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed with the service at the Bistro, but it really made for an uncomfortable birthday dinner for my daughter.

Our first time to Gervasi Vineyards and The Bistro, but definitely won't be our last!
The food was incredible, and our hostess Kristen was amazing!! Her knowledge and recommendations as to the food and wine pairings was spot on! And the special touch she added to my wife's dessert for her birthday, was beyond words! Can't wait to see you again soon!

Our food was delicious! Our server, Holly B, was AMAZING! She had great recommendations, thoroughly explained the wine list and menu, and was an attentive server. Highly recommend the Pepe Di Risotto appetizer (if you like a little spice), the Malvasia Biance wine and the sea bass entree.

It was a lovely Autumn afternoon and had hoped to enjoy a special lunch. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable when they appeared, but they were not attentive. Never back to check if we wanted an additional glass of wine and we had to get up from the table to find a server to order coffee. The salad was fresh and the meals were tasty and generous but the entrees were barely warm. We could not find a server to asked to have them warmed. We tried several desserts and all agreed that the gelato trio was the worst. It was just iced milk. The server replied their freezer is too cold for gelato. Probably the biggest issue was the very cold dining room. The Barn is lovely and rustic but freezing. Most of the tables are all positioned next to the windows and the breeze coming thru the windows and walls actually moved the napkins off our laps. If you are dining during cool/cold weather be sure to bring a lap blanket and a warm coat you can still eat dinner in.
