Delightful Evening

I was looking for a special restaurant to celebrate my husband birthday. He loves French food. Gervais was a great choice! We started with escargot and foie gras. They wer both wonderful. The foei gras was parried with a sauterne that added to the delight. Then we had a large serving of lobster bisque. My main course was the roasted crab which was dungenees crab pick out and then returned to the shell and roasted. We... view more

Valentines Day---broke my heart

This was to be a night of celebrating our engagement. An hour to be seated WITH A RESERVATION. They asked us to wait at another restaurant and use ""their"" bar. We waited 1/2 hour to have our order taken and 1/2 hour between courses. The staff was not organized to handle this event. Others were complaining about service and waiting for their food. Tables exchanged conversation of ""lack of service"". I think the ent... view more

Horrible Experience

Very short staffed. One lady was the bartender, the hostess and the waitress. It took us 1 hour to recieve our appetizers. The waitress did not know the menu...and blunted stated so. The lobster bisque was not creamy, very spicy and not sifted well. There were pieces of shell and sand. The scallops were over cooked and very rubbery. By the time it was served to us it was cold. I had dirty utencils. A silverfish crawl... view more

Went downhill

I had been going to Gervais since they opened up on Park Avenue some 30 years ago. After they sold and moved to the lovely sight in Saratoga, I thought it was fantastic. They had the best french food in the valley and now they went to one of the best sites. I was really excited to go their on my anniversary, boy was I disappointed. I could hardly eat the food, the service was bad and when I complained, they told me t... view more

Not great for the buck..

My boyfriend took me to Gervais for Valentines Day - the experience was disappointing. When we first walked into the restaurant, no one greeted us, took about 5 minutes before the hostess noticed us...the waiter forgot my drink, my boyfriend asked for his steak to be cooked 'rare' , the waiter reiterated back ""medium rare"", my boyfriend said "" no, rare"", and the steak came out..""medium"". The food was so so, the... view more

fabulous dining

Restaurant Gervais offers one of the best dining in the bay area. If you are a real food lover and not just looking for hyped up cafeteria food, you will love this place. The Foie Gras appetizer is out of this world and changes seasonally. The rack of lamb is the best I have ever had with its divine sauce. The new beautiful bar gives one the opportunity to dine in a less formal setting within the restaurant where one... view more

Gervais: Under new management

Under new management, the new menu is exceptional! It is not adhering to a strictly French menu, but the styles of preparation are all true to form and classic. The filet mignon with foie gras is great, but the veal chop on top of morel risotto is superb! This is really a fine dining experience, much more so than with the previous menu. According to the new owners, the dishes are still in a bit of flux, but it will... view more
