A word from Chianina Steakhouse
Chianina Steakhouse is the new jewel from the Michael's Restaurant group (Selected by Zagat as the #1 Fine dining Italian Restaurant and the # 1 pizzeria in Los Angeles).
Located just two blocks south from Michael's on Naples on 2nd St. in Long Beach, Chianina set itself apart from the rest of the steakhouses by bringing their own cattle from Italy, and continuing with our commitment to the farm to table concept, makes this restaurant, one of a kind, and one which must be checked out.

    We came here with great expectations having been to Italy many times, especially Tuscany home of the Steak Fiorentina...very cool atmosphere and friendly staff...however, there were at least 5 different Menus, the sommelier was uninformed, only ONE waiter for all the tables, he seemed in a hurry to move on, steak we had was the New York Piedmont ...$50 ala carte...I cook better ones, as well as Mastros, Flemings & Ruth Chris...and the coup de grace was the "Special Chianina" steak List...about 40 selections ranging from $245 and up for like 45 Oz cuts...all sold out except 2... you have to have money and no brains to eat at this place...I give them 2 years and they are done That is the most ridicuulos

    We had a very good experience. The steak was amazing, we had the Chianina and the owner explained the animal to us in detail and how it is processed. The taste was outstanding. I was only disappointed in the salad. It had some brown edged leaves and with a restaurant of this caliber they should have been tossed. Everything else was wonderful otherwise. I will definitely go back and recommend this restaurant!!

    The dining experience at Chianinas was unbelievable! This is definitely a restaurant for special occasions. Everything was awesome! The ambiance was cozy but elegant. The waiter was informative, but very personable and friendly. We never felt rushed in any way, which seems to be a common theme in a lot of other restaurants. The menu was very special, the items and dishes were chosen and created specifically to the season. Everything was so perfectly delicious! I can't wait to return.

    A friend and I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He loves steak, and the Chinana beef did not disappoint! delicious and perfectly cooked. The sides were great as well, (fries, mushrooms, brussel sprouts) and we even had dessert. The only side we ended not loving was the potatoes gratin. Just too cream-heavy and bland. The fries were better. We started with hand made barrel aged cocktails, tried all three between us, and they were all great. It is a bit pricey, but for a special occasion, so very glad Long Beach has a place like this! we will definitely be back. And all agreed we want to come have drinks at the bar sometime, with a few sides. Service was excellent, and attentive, with good recommendations.

    The dinner was very good, although I prefer a more marbled steak (they specialize in lean steak). Vegetables were quite well done. However, the prices are high and everything is al a carte (the steak comes on a bare plate if no sides are ordered). The wine list is extensive, but also high priced. We were able to talk easily. It was not a busy night -- the sound level might go up on nights when the bar is busy. It is definitely a special occasion place.

    This was our 2nd time out for dinner at Chianina (and our first since they obtained their alcohol permit). Made an early (5:30) reservation without issue, parking was also not an issue in crowded Naples, with a valet available for a modest amount (worth it). We were among the first diners, however by 6:00 p.m. things began to pick-up with over half the tables/booths occupied and the bar full when we left at 7:15. The food was 1st rate (I had the duck breast on special and wife had the 8 oz. filet). Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. Service was spot-on (attentive, but not intrusive). Shannon (our server) was very knowledgeable as to the menu, food preparation and suggestions), with follow-up by Gen. Manager, Mr. Duran.

    The food was ok, we had a party of seven and not everyone was happy with the food. One person ordered the chicken and it was under cooked, another person ordered the grouper and that too was under cooked. The filets were good, the lamb was fatty and we ordered three different deserts and they really had no flavor . I rate the food a three and the service a five. Over priced for the quality, our bill was almost $600.00.

    I get it now that they have special cows raised just for them and the opportunity to get a steak from this is limited! But when you sit down and they jump all over you to commit to one of the last pieces of steak left with the 30 others all crossed out SOLD you go from having a good time at dining to thinking you are on the used car lot. The food and service were good and the price extreme. Bucket list item...CHECK!

    Steak was one of the best we've ever eaten, "ate the whole thing". Tongue appetizer delicious, shrimp apetizer so so (not worth $).Our server was Jacob and he needs more training he made us feel rushed and they brought us our apetizers before we got our white wine? There timing was really poor. Vegetables overcooked? This is an expensive place and unless they get the KINKS worked out quickly?? The prices make it doubtful if we'll go back.

    I had been waiting since they opened for this day. The night they would finally served their privately raised Italian cattle, Chianina. I have had Bistecca Florentine in Florence Italy at Antinori's Cantinetta, and this did not disappoint. We ordered the 38 oz Bistecca (Porterhouse) for three to share, when they brought it to the table I thought it was so thick they couldn't possibly get it hot in the center. My mistake, The steak was cooked perfectly!! The kitchen did a great job of keeping the steaks hot all the way through and cooked to a beautiful medium. This cattle is raised by a gentlemen in Washington and he takes great pride and care in preparing his beef. This is only around for a limited time each month, make reservations now!

    Our second time there and we can't wait for our third, even though we live near Pasadena. It is worth the drive to experience well-sourced and wonderfully prepared food. The manager, Alejandro, is very friendly and suggested an Amapola zinfandel for our steaks - a terrific pairing and one of the less expensive wines. From start to finish, our meals were perfect.

    Here are the pluses and minuses. First course: Pork Belly with peaches over pearl couscous, amazingly flavorful, A plus, Iceberg salad, perhaps the worst tasting blue cheese dressing I have had in a restaurant, overly tart off taste very poor balance of agcid, cream, salt and cheese, very nicely presented so a C instead of F. Main courses: The Piedmonte Steak (New York Cut) $50.00, excellent flavor, very tender perfectly cooked A plus, Roasted chicken vastly oversalted, B minus, Linguini with Clams, overly fishy tasing ? clams not as fresh as the pasta, B minus. Sides: Potato Gratin, undercooked, solid C, Creamed spinich, watery, C+. The ugly part was the bill, just too expensive for the inconsistent quality of the food.

    I was prepared for expensive, but I was not prepared for the prices they were asking - $50 for a New York steak was about $10 too much. The pork chop I had was cooked to perfection and tasted great. The Yukon Gratin potatoes were a little undercooked. My wife's clams were great, but she complained to me the vegetables she received were of the standard fare found in cheaper restaurants. When we got the bill we were charged for two soups. We did not order soup and were surprised when a waiter set two small cups (of about 1 Tbs each) in front of us, announcing that these were called "Lil Surprise" and were provided for our tasting. After seeing them on the bill, I double-checked to see if we were also charged for the water or the rolls.

    The food, especially the ribeye steak, was outstanding. Although we had a very nice time, I can't say that I was impressed with the space, ambiance and service. We spent a LOT of money at the restaurant and I would have expected top notch service. Unfortunately, we were often searching for our server, or left wondering when our drinks/food would arrive. When our appetizer did finally arrive, it was the wrong item! The inexperienced young kid (not our server) who brought us the app questioned us multiple times about whether we were "sure we didn't order the appetizer" he placed in front of us. He proceeded with "um, well let me check with your server, because this what it states here." Don't argue with the customer, kid!

    Chianina's showed up on a Gayot review of "Best Steakhouses in Los Angeles/South Bay." Took a chance and booked a reservation for our 28th anniversary - we were not disappointed! The ambiance is contemporary, modern, but nicely understated. Steak prices rival those of better known places such as 555, Morton's and Flemings, but you will not be disappointed as the meat is excellent. Great sauces offered at no additional cost. Everything is a la carte, but they are happy to split salads. Sides were excellent. Don't miss the mushroom medley, it is FANTASTIC. The general manager stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and present us with a customized dessert of creme brulee with "happy anniversary" written on the side of the plate.

    Our expectations were very high given the fanfare for the place on the net. The place did not have that warm,inviting vibe. It seemed cold and almost industrial(bordering on soul less). The Wine list was not that impressive and the choices seemed very limited. Food was very expensive for what we got and I have literally had better beef at Argentine BBQ joints for 1/4 of the price. We wanted to like the place, but just could not convince ourselves that it was worth coming back to. Curiosity has been satisfied and we can now move on to other known establishments in the area that do provide a far better bang for the buck.

    We enjoyed our visit to Chianina. The Piedmontese Beef was very good. Steak broiled as ordered. Excellent side dishes,including a few variations on potato dishes. We went on a Sunday night and our wives took advantage of an excellent Prix Fix offering that was a great value. This night the main course was Pork Chops. All in all an excellent experience. Service was also first rate. We ,of course,expected great service and great food befitting an establishment affiliated with Michael's. We were not disappointed. We would return.

    Took my wife for our five year anniversary, and it was a perfect place for a special occasion. The cocktail program is excellent, and they even have more rare classics, like calvados. The gratin was phenomenal, the marrow was succulent, the gnocchi was superb. I love that they properly spice their steaks, and that the quality really shows. The molten chocolate cake was the perfect mix of caramelized sugars, coffee, and bitter chocolate. Tip: The steaks of the piedmont are much more lean than traditional American Prime... so it is better to eat them at a temperature level lower than what you would typically order (medium rare instead of medium, for instance). Delicious.

    A small group, anxious to try this landmark restaurant site (Kelly's), were not to experience a steak house. But rather an Angels Envy Cocktail Dinner for June 24, 2014. A nepotistic crowd who were not accommodating to first time diners. A night if misguided offerings; of Culinary highs & tasteless lows coupled with marginal service, long waits between four courses, and no beef. It was disappointing as this event was not listed on Open Table; Yelp; or Dining Rewards. It was expensive. And it is not a turn off.

    I am not a regular review writer, but our evening at Chianina was exceptional, I feel the restaurant should get some sort of recognition. Our group of six favors steakhouses and Chianina has been on our radar since opening. We were very warmly greeted, seated promptly and the excellent service continued through the entire meal. We started with four appetizers, including the bone marrow, pork belly, scallops and Kauai shrimp. All were outstanding, but the portion sizes were small and our group likes to share, so it was a bit difficult. My wife and I had the rib-eye for 2, more than ample in size and perfectly cooked medium rare. It exceeded our expectations, which sounds funny for a high-end steakhouse. Desserts were also outstanding.
