Has lost half a step, but still very good

We returned to Gervais & Vine after over a year absence with memories of amazing flavor combinations and incredibly well prepared tapas style dishes. This visit was analgous to a NFL superstar receiver who has lost half a step as he ages. The moves (menu items) are still their, executed better... read more

Sat at the bar & enjoyed cooking lessons from a very friendly staff. Enjoyed eggplant fries & Moroccan spiced pork were excellent.

My Wife and I found ourselves in downtown Columbia and we're feeling a bit hungry. Not being especially impressed with our previous downtown Columbia dining experiences we decided to try Gervais and Vine. We received our menu and looked over the short but decent wine listing. My Wife went with a German Riesling. I selected an Argentine Malbec. Both were... More

We stopped by on our way to the airport. Had some wonderful wine and a terrific appetizer of three spreads. We had the Pimento cheese, the she crab spread and the gouda with shrimp and bacon.. We could not decide which was the best. The service was friendly and quick. They understood our urgency and it ended up being a... More

I had a few small plates and they ranged from unoriginal but okay/fine (spinach and garbanzo beans) to excellent (scallops). The sparkling wine in a can was not for me, but I don't fault the restaurant for that. The soup I had was inventive and showed that the chef has some real skill. The atmosphere was great - lively but... More

It seems like a nice wine bar, but I was limited on time and did take out of some tapas. I got asparagus and filet mignon bites which considering I did take out were very good. I thought it was overpriced for the portion sizes but it probably would have been offset by presentation and the enjoyment of the restaurant... More

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
