    The four of us had a great time. The noise level was such that talking was no problem. The food was great. The waitress was a little lacking. Was to bring more bread but didn't. Just little things she could have done better.

    We had reservations and got right in. Food was outstanding. Drinks were great. The gentleman who brought us a second beer was charming. We were able to have conversation without speaking loud. The only downside was our waitress seemed very hurried and was short and impatient with us at times.

    First visit, left impressed. Wonderful menu of choices, and both spouse and I were impressed with quality and taste. Price was very reasonable for the quality of food and service recieved. For about same price as chain italian restaurants you can enjoy this gem, and walk away as we did: thoroughly impressed.

    Xavier was the server for our group of 6. His knowledge of the menu was superb. Was always prompt with everything. One of our party asked for his steak butterflied and well done but came out a chard and medium the second time. Xavier without asking removed the dish from the bill and compt dessert for the entire table. We will be requesting Xavier with ever future reservation we make.

    I think you could improve with the bread basket. Ours was cold, dry and tasteless. As if it had sat around for quite a bit. Disappointing.

  • Love chianti grill
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    We have eaten here numerous times. The food is always delicious. I am sure this time was a fluke but the tuna app was very "off" from what I have had before. The portion was extremely thin both in thickness and width and smothered in sauce. It was on a bed of lettuce which took up the entire plate (assuming because there was barely any fish on it). Everyone loved the other meals and apps. Tuna is my go to food and I order it as an entree everywhere that serves it so I'd like to think of myself as experienced in this specific dish.

    The wife and I agree, Chianti Grill is the best restaurant south of the river. Look at everything you want in a quality dining experience and Chianti Grill for fills your wishes . It is expensive for dinner, but lunch is extremely reasonable. For all of our special occasions, this is where we go.

    I have been here several times and the place has never disappointed me. The service is outstanding, it's like each server only has one or two tables. They're very attentive and my glass was never empty. And the food, oh my God the food! Always piping hot and absolutely delicious. The fresh bread keeps coming too. The ambiance tops it off with a huge open room and a beautiful massive fireplace. Definitely one of my favorite places!

  • Cousin's treat
    rickster0617
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    My wife's Cousin treated us to diner. We were informed that they ran out of garlic mashed potatoes and it would be at least 20 minutes before they were going to be available. At 1st they were going to serve our steak ahead of the garlic mashed potatoes. We asked for a free glass of wine or something off the meal and then we were informed they would fire new steaks when the garlic mashed potatoes were ready. Our waiter, Xavier made the entire time a memorable experience. My rib eye steak did not look done but cutting it open revealed it was a very good medium rare. I was disappointed because it was not a very tender piece of meat. I should have gotten the filet mignon. We'll see if there is a next time.

Had never been here before but will definitely return. The price was a pleasant surprise. Seriously could not believe the price for all the food they offer.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and due to the fact she had gotten a gift certificate through her employment for Chianti Grill, we decided why not?! She has been to the other location in Roseville and liked it, so we knew going in it should be as good in the Burnsville location. I had flowers delivered to the restaurant for her and had hoped they would be at the table when we got there, they weren't, but I can understand why they didn't have them on the table. Everything worked out fine! ALL the staff were very friendly and did a great job. I'm sorry I don't remember our waitresses name, but she was exceptional!! She definitely went above and beyond the 'call of duty'...all in all, a great experience! !

    Had a 7:00 reservation and showed up a few minutes early. Seated at a 6top (party of 4) as that was immediately available. Food order taken promptly and beverages served quickly. The Veal Parmigana was excellent as was the Walleye with special seasonings. Prices reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

    On a beautiful early fall day, I enjoyed Sunday brunch with a friend from high school and my spouse. Although I was 25 minutes late for my reservation, my friend and I were seated almost immediately. The waitress attended to our beverage needs timely and then waited patiently while my friend and I talked for several minutes before going through the serving line. The food was very good and filling. My only regret was that I forgot to have our picture taken together but can't fault the restaurant for that oversite. We were there two hours.
