Busy Valentines Day, but even being busy food and drinks were the best, love this place
Everything about Sovana is always good. And consistent. You can always be confident in taking out of town guests or anyone you want to impress to Sovana and it will be a great dinner. But tonight, our server, Sophie made our Valentine’s a day truly memorable. She is one of a kind!
The food was fabulous as always but for the first time the service was not good. We had to ask for more water, desert menus, and the check. Are waitress was extremely overwhelmed and needed help. Also, every table around us received the taster sampler before you order accept us. We eat there a couple times a year and this was the first time we felt ignored. Of course, we’ll come back again because it’s our favorite restaurant in the area. Maybe just not for Valentines Day.
Service took long time will wait for hour and a half at least for our dinners to come out and unfortunately one of our dinners it wasn't prepare properly,
Great place and service. All of the food was good and our waiter was outstanding.
Also, had a good selection of wine and good whine by the glass which is rare even in some high end places. Pizza, pasta and homemade pitta were great.
Great lunch and great service
Food was excellent
We love good food; each dish of the four different dishes we had this night were spot on. We did bring our own wine for an $8 corkage fee per bottle [this could be a great move if you need to pair your great wine with something delicious]. Even the deserts were prepared to devour. I can say the meal of the night was my wife's Candele pasta with veal and mushrooms with the homemade pasta it was awesome. The light mushroom sauce with black truffles just a hint of heat to it was a great touch. After dinner we toured the room where the pasta magic happens... we had to see how this delicate pasta was made... imagining some fancy machinery with a corkscrew attachment handled by blessed and gifted hands after perfecting the dough ...and then seeing the freezer full of homemade ice cream and sorbet....was a whimsical ending to our great evening. And so we left a nice tip...smiles all around... ;o)
The food is always excellent at Sovana Bistro. We have dined there in very large groups and as couples and it is always consistently excellent. Love the vibe, the different interior and exterior dining spaces and also the option of byob (despite a full and lively bar)!,
Our food was delicious but service was not great. We got the feeling that since we brought our wine and our server wasn’t making the money on alcohol from us she ignored us. We sat for over 20 minutes and had to flag her down before she would even bring us wine glasses and an opener. Had to ask for bread when all the other tables had it brought to them.
We are regulars at Sovana. The cheese plate is excellent. We always enjoy it with cocktails.
The menu differs from the one shown on_line.
That was disappointing I was looking forward to the Strip Steak, but had the Rib Eye. It was very good. The menu on the web site lists 6 salads,
6 pizzas, and 6 pasta dishes. There were car fewer sejections.
The food is always great but the outstanding service is what takes this place past most others. Consistently one of the best dining experiences in the entire Delaware Valley.
We had lunch on a Saturday and enjoyed it very much. Delicious soup, juicy chicken sandwich and light, flavorful gnocchi. Great service and very nice front room. We’ll be back for dinner soon.
Knowledgeable bar tenders and great vegan choices.
I love the authenticity of this bistro! Lunch with friends there can never go wrong.
We took the express menu: a soup, a salad, a bun with..., a desert. All in small portions.
One little thing that was bothering my friend: the AC ... always need a scarf to keep it warm and cozy ;-)
This restaurant never disappoints!!! Awesome always
1906 at Longwood Gardens was closed this month, so we came here for the first time on our way to visit Longwood Gardens . Great menu choices, great food! Large portions, we split a Meza plate and it was plenty . Can't wait to go back to order many other items, which looked really delicious! Very good service, friendly and informative staff. This lunch however seemed to be overly busy , so service was a little slow. Won't keep us from going back though!
We sat at the bar and had the best brick oven pizza! The libations (drinks) were also amazing! Great atmosphere!
Our server Corrine was fantastic and our meal was wonderful!
The food was exceptionally good. Menu includes Inventive dishes like a “hummus” made from sweet potato, and pizza with chorizo and dates. I will be returning for more.
I have never gotten a bad meal from here and we always have the best time!
Brunch was Ok today. Mom ordered a bagel with cream cheese, lox, and other fixings, but was not pleased. Bagel was cold. Dad got the French toast, and I had the heuevos rancheros, which was yummy! For dessert, I had the molten chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream. Our server, Caroline, was nice, but took way too long with the food. I don't think we are going back for brunch anytime soon.
My girlfriend had the braised short ribs and I had the ziti with a braised short rib sauce. Both meals were okay but a little short of expectation since we heard such great things. It's a nice restaurant but maybe a tad over priced. There are 2 better dinning options in Kennet Square.
Getting Michael as our waiter always elevated the experience.
Butternut squash gnocchi was excellent. Same for the Rib Eye. Tuna tartare is a must. Beet salad is phenomenal. Old fashion is nice also. Always great service and great food. You pay for what you get.
From beginning to the end everything was like it should be. Staff very friendly, there was just enough time in between courses we were not rushed, quality of food very good. Cocktails delicious!
We love everything but the chairs are very uncomfortable.
always have a great meal here.
Amazing experience- total professionalism and experience was amazing from the moment we arrived to the minute we left, giving us a greeting of thanking us for coming tonight! Every detail was on point!
Eh. We’ve been there a bunch. It’s our “go to” spot but this time was just so so. It was suburban good but pricey. Drinks there are the same you’d pay in center city, which doesn’t jive. We had three of the specials that night (two apps and a main) and nothing special. Service was slow to bring drinks, but we must have had six people stopping by looking to clear plates before we were finished. It was busy, as it usually is, but it just felt hectic.
Good food and great service, as always.
Tables are a little small and space is tight. Husband joked that next time we reserve table for 4 even though it’s just the two of us
Sam did a great job bartending and waiting on us simultaneously!
They have a great lunch/brunch menu. My hubby had the shrimp tacos and I had the burger, both were very tasty. My favorite part of Sovana is choosing what cocktail I'm going to have among their unique lust!
Love the setting, food quality, and service. We live about an hour away, but it is a favorite of ours.
Excellent as usual! Consistently delicious food and accommodating staff. My go-to for last minute date nights and working lunches! So glad to have this place in my neighborhood
Inventive and delicious salads and appetizers. Shortribs were perfect with really excellent butternut squash puree (more, please ), and it was served with tasty, but kind of tough, chewy kale. The butterscotch cake was good, but the ice cream was really unexceptional and was crystalized as if it had thawed and been refrozen.
The best spot in Chester county!! Nicky and his staff do a great job
Another excellent experience, service, food & ambience. Well done
We were there on a Sunday night when it wasn't busy so it was very quiet. I was visiting with my sister who lives very close. She goes there on a regular basis because the food is so good and the service is terrific. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I was in there one other time when I was visiting my sister. I would love to have this restaurant in my area. I will go back again when I'm in the area.
