The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard Ratings and Reviews

First time to Gervasi. Was very pleased with food, atmosphere and service. Our waiter, Dirk (or Derk) did a great job, we will ask for him on our next visit. He really took the time explaining the foods and wines and when asked for his recommendations he really came through. Prices were more reasonable than I was expecting. I highly recommend the Gervasi Bistro. Thanks

Well, it was just an wonderful experience. The setting was beautiful and the facility could not provide a better atmosphere. The staff was welcoming, patient knowledgeable, and helpful. You could sense their pride.
The food and wine were excellent. My salmon was perfectly prepared and I even enjoyed the kale that came with it.
This was our first experience at the Bistro and I can assure you there will be more. Thanks for a great evening.

We visited during the harvest festival, so only the very early diner times were available. The dinner specials were very good, but a bit pricey. Our server was very friendly and described the wines well without rushing through. When we asked a question he didn't know he brought the sommelier over to our table to help. Overall a very good experience.

Wait staff was great ! The wine was great too! We enjoyed our flight, and shared a pizza and the stuffed peppers as appetizers. The peppers were very very very spicy and I think I can handle the heat, but these were so hot that you couldn't really taste even taste them. The pizza was good, nice wood fired crust. The bread to eat while you waited was fantastic! Should have made a meal out of that. The main course was less to be desired. 3 of us had the same shrimp and scallop pasta dish. There was no seasoning at all! So the food had no flavor to it. It was very dry also. It could have used more olive oil or a light sauce. Plus the type of pasta was too thick. Angel hair would have been better. One other person had the fish special. The fish was bone dry and again had no seasoning! Food looks delicious, but when you dig in, you are sorely disappointed. For being hyped up to be an upper scale Italian restaurant, it was a huge let down. Not sure if it was a bad afternoon for the cook or what. The restaurant was not even half full while we were there, so it wasn't that they were soo busy. Maybe they ran out of salt, pepper, and butter. Been looking forward to this meal for months, and we all were disappointed when we left.

The overall experience was fabulous! It was a beautiful day but being able to relax on the patio with good apps and drinks to start off with and then an amazing dinner. We had a birthday celebration and the topper with candles...just made it special. The market place to shop for trinkets is very nice too. The landscaping grounds were well manicured and it was just a beautiful day with friends. Highly recommend it

I have heard about Gervasi's many times from different friends and chose it because of a special evening with a friend. It did not disappoint as far as the ambiance, creative menu, and service. I would choose it again for those special occasions we all have. Parking was the only disadvantage due to a wedding being held there.

We wereawere a party of 6 we had an appetizer dinner and drinks. While the wine and drinkswdrinks were good the food itself was quite a dissappointment.
From burnt pizza to rubber scallops, shrimp and way over cooked halibut

We had a delightful time. Our waiter made it extra special with conversation as well as information about the wine etc. We loved the setting as well as the restaurant ambiance. The food was excellent right down to the desserts. We definitely will come back again.

The food at Gervasi is consistently good. We have visited four times now and always found the appetizers to be creative and delicious (this time there was a sweet corn and mushroom vol au vent with puff pastry). The salads and pizzas are also excellent, and the wines are good. We had a slight blip in the service this time given that our server didn't clear the used app dishes in a timely manner, and when he did, he took our knives. We had to ask for knives when the entrees arrived. I also wish they would dispense with someone coming to the table and interrupting our conversation simply to ask how the meal was (or at least be more sensitive about interrupting). But overall, I think Gervasi is an outstanding place to eat and has a great combination of beautiful setting, tasty food (on the rich side but deliciously so) and pleasant service.

The food was really good, but the rest of the experience was particularly underwhelming. Our waiter was less than enthusiastic, and even though the restaurant was extremely quiet, the hostess made an issue of us changing our reservation (to less people). When seated, you are only given the wine list, which makes it impossible to know what to drink if you're looking to pair. The food was good, and they made a lovely presentation for the birthday we were celebrating, but I would not rush back.

This restaurant was so warm and welcoming. There is a lot of wood and one floor overlooks a beautiful pond. There is a beautiful staircase leading upstairs, and downstairs has a romantic vibe. We loved the ambiance and the food was delicious! We can't wait to return.

Beautiful buildings and grounds. The food was great. My husbands pork chop came out a well done (he ordered it medium) so they remade his dinner but brought a small serving of short ribs mashed potatoes and carrots in the meantime. They also gave us free dessert. We will definitely be back. We will probably try the outdoor eatery or the Crush house next. It almost looked like you were at an exotic resort, not a restaurant in Canton, Ohio!

Our king luxury suite was beautiful. So spacious. We overlooked the pond. Warm towels. Comfortable bed and pillows. Fireplace. It was perfect. We had dinner at the Biustro. Our waitress, Nicki was informative , so nice and a wonderful pleasant server. Our experience was perfect. We walked the immaculate grounds. Shopped at the marketplace. Quick check in and check out. Never wanted to leave. We were transported to a beautiful and charming, romantic getaway.

Impeccable service at the Bistro! It was a celebration of our anniversary and my birthday and could not have been more perfect. Amazing food and wine as always. Our server was knowledgeable plus had a great personality that made the night fun. Would recommend to anyone that will listen!

First visit, a double birthday. We had a great time! Probably one of the best restaurants in Stark/Summit counties. Modern Italian menu with fantastic wine list. They have a vinyard on premises, but it's not producing much yet. The place is only about 5 years old. Great place for a special occasion.

Many open tables upstairs but the attempted to seat us in middle of main dining near door. After complaing, we were moved to quiet table downstairs. Quaint but SPECTACULAR views of outdoors were absent. Next visit I request the window table - was available when we arrived " but was requested".

Anniversary dinner at The Bistro. First time visit. Wine very good. Excellent service. I gave fewer stars because of very average strip steak, sides, appetizer and salads at fairly expensive price. Any upscale restaurant should offer a filet on the menu, in my opinion. Also a fairly limited menu. Husbands meal good but not spectacular. We were seated in the lower basement area and the lighting was so low, we could barely read the menu at all, even with glasses. The quiet and privacy with only one other couple was the only nice thing about that. We did have an advance reservation but host did not even ask if we wanted to be seated down in the dark basement. I would have chosen to wait for an upstairs table. We had a gift card to use, so the final bill was not the issue, however I would choose a wonderful meal elsewhere if paying that much out of my pocket in the future. We were served a complimentary dessert for our anniversary which was a nice unexpected surprise. It was storming outside, so we did not get to enjoy much of the view. Would possibly try again but definitely will select something different from the menu and will not sit in the basement.
Maybe would try the pizza with wine.

We enjoyed the dinner that we had at the Bistro. The food came out in an orderly fashion. Everything was warm and very tasty. The wine we had was very good. The service was the best. Will definitely be going back.

My wife and I have visited often and have received great service in the past. So that is why we thought we would "show case" our favorite restaurant to our friends from Atlanta. What a disappointment... our service was horrible and the waitress was nonexistent during our dinner. The salad came out wrong and we waited over 10 minutes for someone to make it right. Not to mention our empty wine glasses most of the evening. The waitress did mention she was double booked on the 1st and second floor... but THAT is not our problem. We noticed staff all over the place and the waitress with the 2 tables next to us was fantastic with her customers. I am very disappointed and will never take friends or Family back to this Restaurant. Like I said in the beginning... We loved this place- but to be ignored not only by the waitress be the hostess that we have talked too many times asking about our experience. Unacceptable.... way to many Restaurants local that we don't have to drive 35 minutes each way to.

The general decor of the Bistro is early American lodge/rustic. For some reason, we got stuck in the wine cellar - a cool, closed in cave with stone walls, floor, and ceiling. Maybe some might think it was kinda cool, but for a first time, it was disappointing. The rest of the place is beautiful, but all we could look at was stone walls. The food was too salty for our taste. It was good, and portions were larger than most restaurants of this caliber, but just too heavy on the salt - in the entrees and the appetizers. The grounds are very nice, prices are reasonable for this quality of place, and our waiter was excellent.

Our waitress, Robin, was fantastic. It took an unreasonable amount of time for our food to be served. Nothing we ordered should have taken long to prepare. There was no reason given for the slow serving of the food. The prices are very high for the quality of food you get. I guess you pay for the noisy ambiance. I have never liked the Bistro. Our out of town friends wanted to go to the Bistro because they heard it was good. Now they know word of mouth is not always correct. We and our local friends go to and prefer the Crush House. The food is better, the value of price to quality is better and it is a more relaxed and fun atmosphere.
