Delicious food, nice variety

Very good food. We sat at the bar and enjoyed watching them make everything. HOWEVER, we were also privy to all of the conversations that the barstaff, waitstaff and managers were having. We heard so much about their drunken adventures the night before, much of it sexual in nature. We also heard... read more

So we have been in the area for about 5 years now, and Gervais & Vine has turned into our (me & the wife) go-to spot for good food & drink in Columbia. We have been multiple times, and never had anything less than an excellent overall experience. We try to hit something different on the menu every time we... More

Gervais & Vine is a great place to go have a bite to eat with friends. It's a little more intimate so conversation is pretty easy. They have several varieties of wine of course, but they do rotate out beers so they will have some small craft ones that aren't seen in most places. The service is very good and... More

I was excited about trying the tapas so my old roommates and I met after work. I was a little disappointed. The food was average but overpriced. The server started out skeptical and I definitely felt as if I was judged, but after he got over that he was great. He mentioned some great options and I selected a couple... More

Food is fair, but do not order pizza, Does not look like pizza oven cooked in 700 degree oven, it took over 30 minutes to come to table, Looked and tasted like it came from Public's frozen across the street. All other entrees were eaten before the pizza appeared- waiter said it had to come from two kitchens Not sure... More

I have been to Gervais & Vine a couple times now and am never disappointed! The menu is presented and served tapas style and is great for pairing small plates with different glasses of wine. During my most recent visit, I shared brie with a delicious chutney with one of my friends and I also ordered a small plate of... More

Went to dinner with another couple. Unfortunately, the back room, where the seating is more comfortable, was closed for a private party, so we sat in the main area, which is busier and colder (one of the coldest nights so far this winter, and we weren't far from the door). The restaurant was having their Monday/Tuesday specials at $21 each,... More

I called them this afternoon asking if they accommodated food allergies...they said yes! and I told them I was allergic to soy and peanuts. I asked if I needed to make a special reservation or anything, and they said no... just tell your server. So that's what I did. Well, good thing I don't have a deadly allergy..because I had... More

This place is an absolute joke. My first experience at Gervais & Vine consisted of many different plates of overpriced, undersized, and mediocre (at best) food that was shared between a group of six friends. We came for "jazz night", which was listed at two different times on the menu and website, but that wasn't an issue since there was... More

Great place, away from the craziness of college football fans. Wonderful wine list, the seating in the rear of the place is nice and cozy and quiet. Also sitting at the bar is nice.
