Had a 7:30 reservation on a Friday evening. It was busy, as usual, and we were promptly seated. Our server was great-he was very pleasant, personable and knowledgeable. We were there for a while enjoying a 'catch up' session and were never made to feel rushed. Our server checked on us regularly and couldn't have been nicer or more attentive.... More

I had their... More

We had New Year's Eve dinner here, as well as a couple other dinners in 2016, and were disappointed. Most of the dishes were off. Their fried calamari, which has consistently been one of my favorites over the years, was seriously over-salted and the arugula salad that comes with it had a with it had a weird dressing based on...

I telephoned the restaurant in early December to inquire if they would be open for dinner on December 26th. I could get only an answering machine the day I called, but a young man finally returned my call and indicated they would be open. I wanted reassurance given that the date requested was a Monday and often restaurants are not... More

Great Night! The food was great, the waiter attentive and knowledgeable. We shared a pasta entree and a pizza. Would definitely go back. Also, the red wine-Neverland Cabernet, a little pricey but excellent!

Sovana Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. A diverse wine list awaits and generous seating, but be sure to reserve a spot in advance to guarantee on the weekends. There is nothing on their menu that I would not recommend. Dig their daily lunch specials!

Entered for lunch today, 12/14/16, lone women. shown to a nice seat. It did need to be wiped off, was not set. Host said she'd get someone to clean it up, but that did not happen. Why she could not do it a wonderment, but -oh well. Just looked at the menu in the mean time. Totally ignored /not acknowledged... More

We had a wonderful meal recently at Sovana. The Sazerac cocktail was very good. The market salad was tasty as was the charcuterie board as appetizers. The Amish chicken and salmon mains were great. Wines were excellent, especially the pinor noir. For dessert, we had the warm butterscotch cake and creme brulee. Both were very nice. The cappuccinos were exceptional.... More

We went to Sovana Bistro a few Saturday's ago and had a reservation for four. They sat us at a table in the bar, not in the main restaurant. The service was the worst I have ever had in my many years dining out. The server, who was a bartender, was at the table a total of 4 times the... More
