I have been to Sovana Bistro several times, mostly for dinner but today for lunch and it was lovely. We sat outside in the porch area where we listed to the waterfall in the small pond while enjoying a wonderful lunch. I had the apple, walnut salad and added some grilled chicken and I must say it was one of... More

Found this restaurant close to Longwood Gardens which worked out great since we had a night time fireworks show to attend at the Gardens. Very nice atmosphere and high quality food. Ordered a wonderful cheese plate which was delicious. Fig pizza was also very tasty. We ordered the heirloom tomato salad dish. Was a bit disappointed in the amount of... More

One of my favorite places-not that we come so often. Always greeted with a smile. Be prepared it's always busy in the evening. Love the use of veggies from Pete's produce down 926. Nothing that I've ever had has been just average. Desserts too are incredibly creative and tasty!! Waitstaff explains meals very well-from memory-chef's sample-taste of something picked by... More

We were a table of four. All of us felt the food was bland and not prepared well. It was so loud it was difficult to hear even though we were not in the main bar area. Our service was good but the experience was very disappointing and the food not tasty at all. We did like the fact that... More

Wonderful food but a bit pricey. The outdoor patio is great on a nice day! The service and atmosphere is also excellent.

If you find this hidden gem nestled away in a small shopping center in Kennett Square, pat yourself on the back for several reasons: 1) sophisticated ambiance/decor 2) super-attentive service and finally, 3) value. Normally, I am not a Neuvelle Cuisine fanatic, because of the portion sizes, but this restaurant offer Prix Fixe menus Mon thru Thurs and you won't... More

Friendly efficient service. Food very good. Tuna tartare with avocado to die for. Atmosphere very nice. Barbecued lamb chops so very tender. Spinach and goat cheese with olives very different but very good wish I could have eaten more. The 4 of us had a great meal and great time. JR excellent server.

There's probably a reason a lot of the recent reviews have been "up and down." Our experience was a bit uneven... The setting in the patio/garden area is very nice... reminiscent of Bistros in Napa and Sonoma Valleys in California. But the chairs (hard, small metal ones) have two spokes on each side that cuts into the sides of anyone... More

First visit, a great patio seat, terrific menu and wide ranging wine list make this a must come back restaurant. Loved it!

Sovana Bistro has outstanding, locally sourced food and a great bar and happy hour. The food is amazing and keeps us coming back (along with the friendly well trained staff.) The restaurant can be loud as it is quite full on weekends, so the outdoor dining can be a good choice in good weather.
