I was with a wedding party and the service and food were very good. I would return if I were in the area again.

I should start by saying I would give this place a 5 but it is necessary to consider the opinions of the folks I was with. What I mean by this is that 6/9 people got the "safe" steak & potatoes and one a salad because they thought the menu was eccentric. I however very much enjoyed the sweet pea... More

We have been regular patrons at the bistro for 13 years(since moving from Chicago) and live in the community. While the food and its preparation seldom disappoints, the dining experience has been quite disenchanting( last evening really came up short). First let me re-iterate the discomfort of the chairs. We've stated this for years, yet they haven't attempted to make... More

Went with a group. You get a piece of meat or fish and everything else is extra. It was very expensive. I would not go back. Hard to write something good about it

We have been eating at Sovana Bistro for years and never been disappointed. Staff are friendly and attentive, atmosphere is pleasant, and the food is always great. Really enjoy the locally sourced ingredients and interesting preparation of dishes. Nice to have BYOB option.

Three of us went to lunch to discuss business and we did while we had a good lunch. The noise level is always low even when packed, not sure how they do it! I had a generous sized quiche with a side salad. My friend had a grain bowl that she liked and took half home. Always a great place!

First visit this month was early Feb and there was a group of us. Waiter was pleasant but not intrusive and the support staff assured that you had water and that plates were taken promptly. I had a cod special with superb accompanying vegetables and the plating was beautiful. Calamari and tuna tartare was the best we've had. Delicious bread... More

What a lovely place in Kennet Square. We are at the Bistro twice this week. The bread was delicious, we had onion soup which was very repeatable. They have a very varied lunch menu and plenty of gluten free options. The lunch menus were very good with a nice combination of soup, sandwich, and dessert. The beer selection was very... More
