Sovana Bistro

Sovana Bistro has been a staple in the Unionville community since opening in 1998 and has evolved into a highly regarded dining destination. The menu is made up of two sections - our well known "staples" and our always changing "taste of the season". The kitchen creates simple hand-made food, inspired from many areas of the world and seeks to source ingredients that are available in their appropriate season.

The service reflects a gracious approach to hospitality and genuine concern for each and every guest's experience.

"We really want to make this place a regular stop, but the noise level is so high that it detracts from the ambiance. Food is well-prepared but was lukewarm when it arrived at our table. Our waitress did her best to entertain us, however she was totally distracted by an annoying bunch of 9 rude, loud, twenty-somethings who dominated our dining room. Service was so slow that the manager offered a complimentary round of drinks to our patient table of four as entrees were delayed significantly. Fortunately we were not in a hurry since we spent three and one-half hours over dinner. Drinks are very expensive and can add up to as much as the food. Serious advice to management would be to segregate large noisy parties into one separate dining room without mixing tables of two and four into the same area. That way smaller tables could actually converse and enjoy their dinners in more quiet parts of the restaurant."

"We have visited Sovana many times; the last couple of visits were disappointing. We decided to give it one more shot.
The good news: our waiter was great.
The bad news: nearly everything else.
Although restaurant was 75% empty - and we had a reservation - the host insisted on putting us at the rear of the restaurant next to service door to kitchen. Literally, the worst. table. possible. When we asked him about it, he had a bit of a hissy fit.
Pizzas were forgettable. Cardboard crust and skimpy toppings. The apple salad was fine.
Sovana has an absurdly expensive wine list. Very few options under $40; most bottles in the $60 - 100+ range. The menu and kitchen don't justify a $$$$ wine list (and many choices, in my opinion, are way overpriced).
We won't return."

"My husband and I visited Sovana with another couple this past Saturday. I had seen some positive reviews on Open Table and had several people tell me it was great for lunch. I thought it would be a good choice for us to try dinner this past weekend.
My husband and I go out to restaurants frequently and are happy to spend the money on a good meal. Unfortunately for us we spent the money, but the food was not what we were expecting.
We started off on a somewhat positive note. We met at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail while we waited for our table to be ready.
We were sat out on the enclosed patio, which was quiet and a nice escape from the hustle and bustle by the bar. We shared a few appetizers...the calamari and tuna tartare were delicious...but we were not impressed with the lack of dressing on the salad and my husband's bean soup was flavorless.
For entrees I ordered the pork entree, which was just average. My friends husband order the salmon, which he found was dry. The only one at the table happy with their entree was my husband. He ordered the meatball pizza .
The waiter was pleasant and the atmosphere of the restaurant was enjoyable, but other wise we were not impressed with this restaurant. There are many other upscale restaurants in the area with better food. We will most likely not be back"

"Most choices had some sort of meat involved. Not a lot of options for a vegetarian or pescaterean. I'm a pescaterean, the salmon had bacon and the fish of the day was wrapped in prosciutto."

"It can be noisy here for dinner because it's a popular place, but lunch was relaxing and the food was very good. My dining partner had shrimp and grits and I had the crab ravioli. Both were very good. Reasonable portion sizes for lunch (i.e., not huge), and the food was pretty and tasty. Service was friendly and non-pretentious."

"my friend and i had the cheese board - served w/ apple chutney, 2 types of bread... honey...
some spiced nuts... a meal in itself.... and shared a tuna tartare which was fabulous. The tartare had some kind of citrus preserve that paired perfectly with the avacado and tuna.
We arrived at 1pm on a Saturday and the room was packed. I recommend coming at 1:45, as the room had emptied and the atmosphere was more relaxed. I gave a gift coupon to a friend for Christmas, she and her husband had quiche and a individual pizza - they reported enjoying the food. What i like is the variety of food choices for different taste palates.
Bon apetite'

"We have NEVER had a bad meal at Sovana Bistro. Some stand out more than others, but the menu is consistently thoughtful, interesting and varied - while maintaining some tried-and-true dishes that I come back for again and again. I LOVE the tuna tartare. I had an unbelievable cedar-planked salmon - superb flavors; finish was just right - and then two nights later had a steelhead trout that was equally fabulous. Thanks for being such a great place so close to home!"

"I love Sovana's express lunch. It's different every day, and gives a small salad, entree and dessert, often with a soup as well. It's a lovely small portion of each, and allows you to taste all of the wonderful types of things they create. A lovely gem.
It's also reasonably priced for Sovana.

"Calamari changed not as good as last year. Food average not succulent as in the past. Wish it was better because it is our neighborhood restaurant."
