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.

We had dinner at The Bistro for my Mom’s birthday. It is her favorite place to go for special occasions. We had a lovely experience. The service was outstanding and the food was out of this world. I can’t wait to return for the next occasion.

The ambience is very nice, but the quality of the food for the price was not satisfactory. I had the filet for about $50, and it was a bit tough. The servers were friendly, but did not hesitate to interrupt us multiple times

Maybe the worst service we have had ever at this restaurant. Has been slow in past but for how expensive this restaurant is poor food and worse service can not make it worth it.

Food and service were delightful. Unfortunately, we were once again (this has happened before at Gervasi) seated at a very small table near a wall in the dark, with two large men in our party. When we asked to be moved to a table more suited to our needs, although there were several 4-tops available, we were seated at a very large round table (the one next to us had 9 seated there) ... we were so far apart that it was hard to converse, much less toast!

If Gervasi would seat guests at its "best" tables first, then the next tables left would still be "the best" until the restaurant is full. Otherwise, our evening was a positive experience.

We had lunch in the Bistro to celebrate a wedding anniversary with friends. Our waiter was excellent. He didn't hover, but paid close attention to us. We told him we weren't in a hurry and we enjoyed our 4 courses. The food was delicious. We'll be back again soon to celebrate a birthday this time!

Our server Dirk set the mood for our dining experience. He was respectful and professional. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. Our meal was cooked to perfection. Our party had a variety of dishes that included shrimp, salmon and scallops. We ordered the wine flight which was helpful to decide on a wine with dinner, also excellent. Tiramisu and mango, pineapple cheesecake brought our dining to an end with a delicious cup of coffee. The excellent food continued throughout the meal. Highly recommended Gervasi Vineyard and we look forward to our next visit.

The food and service were top notch. We had made the reservation online and wasn't aware we would be seated downstairs. I always thought that was for bigger parties. We were only two. It was a little hard for my husband to navigate the stairs. We should have been asked if that seating would work for us since we are elderly. I felt a little closed off since the only windows are up near the ceiling. We missed being able to look out at the grounds. Every time I've made a reservation I've requested a seat by the window but always seem to be seated the farthest they can be away from them. Are there only seating for bigger parties by the windows. We always seem to be shoved in a corner or this time not even in a room with `windows'.

Only issue we had was with the maitre’d (or host).W

When my wife and I arrived for our wedding anniversary dinner, the maitre’d asked for our name. I told her our last name and stated we had reserved a window table. She confirmed our name and reservation on her computer screen. She said the window tables were currently seated, but hopefully available soon. She asked if we would like to sit at the bar while we waited. We said we prefer not to. She asked if we would mind sitting at a table other than a window table. We said that would be fine. She then said there are no tables available at the moment. She then asked for our name again. Now we were wandering what is going on here...you don’t have any table reserved for us and you can’t even remember our name!

After a short wait, she informs us that a table is ready...and then proceeds to ask us what our name is, again! We were feeling a pretty insignificant and unappreciated at this time!!

Thank goodness the server, food and decor...those were top-notch!!

We are getting married at Gervasi and decided to try the Bistro which has much of the food we will have on our menu for the wedding. The waitress was kind and knew her stuff, just seemed there wasn’t enough staff to support her. Water glasses were left empty for long periods of time and drinks were forgotten they were ordered. Wine also was meh compared to previous times. When serving white wine make sure it’s chilled. It wasn’t chilled and that affected the taste. The red wine also was lacking flavor profile and seemed flat. The ambience was great as the food was also decent. Don’t order the Italian salad unless you ask for a side of dressing as it comes with none on it. Very bland then. Previous visits have been better but I will try again as it is a cool place to eat, drink and converse. 2.5 stars out of 4. Some positive parts but wasn’t blown away at all.

We waited 45 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. Even after being seated I had to track down my waitress. Once we obtained her she was polite and tentative. It's somewhat dark and I couldn't get a look at what portion of my meal I was actually eating. My meal was very average. I believe it was called Chicken Campanella? The rest of the party enjoyed their meal. Of course the wine was great! I think that Gervasi should perhaps allow more time between reservations, not knowing how long people will stay on a Saturday night. Turn up the lights a bit! We had to use our cell phone light to read the menu!
