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

We made reservations for dinner before heading to Longwood Gardens to see the Christmas show/lights and we will definitely be back! Our waiter was extremely helpful all night with non-aggressive recommendations, good thoughts about wine selection and just a friendly demeanor all evening. The food was outstanding - from appetizers to shared entrée and pizza. Perfect meal, reasonably priced and... More

OMG. We arrived and sat at the bar. Took awhile to get service. No info provided on drink specials, bar menu etc. After the first round we were mostly ignored. I would not recommend this venue. Unfortunately it is very close to our new home and we had hoped to find a new friendly local bar. Not happening..

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
