Small plates - BIG Tastes!

We popped in late on a busy Friday night and ordered several different types / tastes of food - all were fresh and tasty! BONUS: They've got a full bar which was a wonderful surprise after a full day of moving our son into the dorm.

Dined at Gervais and Vine with a group of friends on a recent Saturday night. We had eaten here before and while the food had been good, the service was lacking. We chalked it up to a bad night for the server. However, after our most recent experience we really have to question how this restaurant is run. Drink service... More

Way over priced and food was not good at all. Had a table of 6 so we ordered many different tapas and not one of out dishes impressed us. Service was bad as well- waiter was completely clueless about their wine selection even though it is a wine bar.

I have not been here in a many years. I remember it being much better. Took us a while to get service. If you do tapas only you better blow me away. They didn't. Food was ok but just not great. Had 4 plates and all just ok. Had some drinks and 4 plates $120. I won't go back for... More

Recently went on a date to this place. Excellent wine selection and everything I tried (two different sauvignon blanc's) were outstanding. At the advice of a friend, we ordered the eggplant fries....they were OUTSTANDING. We also got another appetizer Great atmosphere for a date night or for grabbing some wine with a friend to catchup on lost times. Quiet music... More

We tried to get into several highly rated restaurants downtown but did not have reservations and wait of more than an hour so we asked for suggestions and ended up at Gervais and Wine. Parking in the rear and across the street. Quiet music in main room and adjacent room which was nice but allowed to talk easier. My wife... More

The positive reviews on this website and others are a frank embarrassment to Columbia, SC's restaurants. If people who eat here are doing so because of the favorable reviews local give to this pit, then no doubt Columbia will be viewed as a wasteland for any kind of dining. Of our 4 people, two got sick. When I asked the... More

Extremely disappointed in this bar. My wife and I stopped here with a friend of ours looking forward to having a couple of nice glasses of wine. When I asked the server to try some different wines, she poured four full glasses of wine, which were terrible. We sent all of the wine back and ordered a German Riesling which... More

Let's just start by saying that Gervais & Vine is one of my favorite places to eat in Columbia! I have eaten here half a dozen times over the past couple of years and I have never ordered anything that was great. The menu is very large, but my favorite items are: Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops, Petite Filet Mignon, Warm... More

We ate dinner there as a reward for me overcoming an irrational fear. The hostess was fantastic and moved us when I complained that the light overhead was bothering me. I enjoyed the food a lot. It was very pretty inside and romantic. Although I was with my friend, I can imagine going here with a date. Unfortunately, I felt... More
