The outside happy hour was an added bonus to our evening.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Service AnywhereOur waitstaff was excellent. Kathy was prompt and thoughtful without being intrusive. Meals were delivered when ready with assistance from others on staff instead of sitting under the light. Best service (and delicious food) anywhere.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday/AnniversaryWe were seated on time and immediately waited on for drinks. Our service was very good and the food was exceptional. To top the evening off I endulged in a piece of carrot cake, my favorite dessert, and I was'nt dissapointed! Overall experience was very

We will be back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe family will plan the specialThe family will plan the special night at some place in Minneapolis or St. Paul but I can trump it! I want chianti grill. One for service second for food and ambience. Libby the bartender is by far the best most personable women I have met. There is also a number of servers that make every dinning experience special! They are never annoyed when we bring out high energy child and they make us feel we are the only table.
I think the other server I need to mention is an Ashley?! Blond sweetest thing ever!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSatisfied CustomersWe enjoy the dining atmosphere and the quality service. It is a place for special occasions and they don't sing "Happy Birthday" to you! The "Butcher Cut" steak and the Salmon are good choices, depending on your likes. We look forward to our next visit and recommend Chianti to our friends.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great foodThis is our go to place for our family. Everyone loves the menu, service, and food. They are always right on when helping me select a wine too.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat!!!Food was wonderful, atmosphere was relaxing, waitress was knowledgeable and excellent!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!We went here for my birthday and we had a great service, the food was fantastic, and we are so pleased with how the night went that we are already planning our next trip back!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat price for good food.A friend and I decided to meet for brunch to celebrate our birthdays. We were seated immediately, since we had a reservation which I would strongly recommend. Our server was there immediately and took our drink order as we headed for the brunch. There is not a huge variety of hot items, eggs benedict, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs but there is an enormous selection of deserts..... cakes, bars, cookies, pies, sweet rolls etc.!!! Most of the food was delicious. If you are dieting though I would not suggest this place for brunch;)6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeFood is always exceptional here. I always have a wonderful time. Great drinks, salad/bread, entree, and dessert.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMKid friendly placeWe thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server was excellent and our 17-month old granddaughter loved the people and the food!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurantsOne of our favorite restaurants with consistently great food, service, and ambiance.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great serviceService was fast, very friendly, and helpful with the menu. The food was fresh and tasty.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I really loveMy friend and I really love Chianti Grill. It is a great place for lunch!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous place!We go here three times a month..friends and lunch! The wait staff is superior!!! Food fabulous!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReservation mix-upUpon arriving we found out there had been a misunderstanding concerning the reservation. We had two small children which had been written into the notes, but in the number of diners. The manager was notified and he resolved it quickly to our satisfaction and theirs. The food was very good, and our waitress very attentive, even with the smaller children which many times can be a problem. When one dines in an upscale restaurant with smaller children, it is always a concern as to how welcome they are. Chianti Grill welcomes them and treats them very nicely.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific ServerNickie was our waitress and she was outstanding in professionalism, friendliness, attention, and knowledge of the menu (especially detailing the specials). She took our order without writing anything down and was spot on accurate. It was a delightful evening with friends.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMromanceMy husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. I asked for a nice place to sit... we were put at the booth closest to the kitchen. Needless to say, not very romantic. One other thing... a dessert menu! Understanding cost, options and so forth is important to customers. Having to ask the price and details could be uncomfortable for some.
Thanks.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my Top Ten RestaurantsI travel the U.S. and this is by far one of my favorite picks. Food -- superb! Service -- Superb!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWas Awesome experience , serviceWas Awesome experience , service was super and everyone friendly

Ty Chianti5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary Dinner RedoI took my wife out to another restaurant for our anniversary. At the conclusion of our dining experience she said " This was terrible. I give this date an F. You will have to do better." For my "redo" I brought her to the Chianti Grill. The service was wonderful, the food outstanding, and the people watching was great as it was prom night. As we were leaving, my wife leaned over to me and said A+!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner and service was fineGoing to Chianti Grill is normally a well thought action and it was again in general. The service was pleasant and professional with the right amount of personal interaction with the server. Our food presentation was well paced and we were not rushed. The food was well prepared and the presentation was fine.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy DiningA very pleasant experience. Nice atmosphere, mostly all booths. The food is very well prepared, service excellent. Despite it being a busy Saturday night, the noise was muted by good acoustics and the dining spots being well separated. That made it easy for my hard of hearing friend and I to converse and hear the waitress. Superb wine choices and recommendations. Little to fault - solid, comfortable, satisfying and its apparent they make the effort to make it that way.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant surpriseI had not been to the Chianti Grille in Burnsville before and was very pleasantly surprised! The service was excellent, the wine list is excellent and they even had a nice pinot noir based grappa. My date and I both had seafood dishes and the seafood was fresh and cooked beautifully. Thanks for a great dinner!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMService unbeatable!I honestly can't remember the last time we have had such fantastic service at a restaurant! Our waiter was lovely, and attentive. He made suggestions for every order and was spot on with them. He kept our water glasses full and was right on top of every course. The meal was delicious... I am so glad we chose Chianti Grill for my birthday celebration!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasant surprise for meI was a little nervous going in so casually dressed (nice jeans and dress shirt) but quickly realized it does seem more like a mid-scale restaurant. The decor and image is very upscale, but there were many families with (well-behaved) kids and people dressed very casually. For the menu prices it seems a bit of a letdown in ambiance, but I'm not a high-class type of diner anyway, so I felt comfortable, though it wasn't exactly an intimate/romantic feel either. So just a 'warning' for anyone who is expecting a "fine dining" experience, you may want to head downtown Minneapolis. (The fact that it's located in a strip mall parking lot should be a clue) Regardless, our server was fantastic and the food was as well! I will definitely go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and serviceWe truly love our experience at Chianti Grill each and everytime we go. Service fun, food from pasta, to steak, to seafood has always been exceptional and management is always there making sure everything is up to our standard and even squats down at your table to get any input you may have. Personal interest in customer satisfaction. Good wines and romantic atmosphere5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous ItalianChianti Grill is consistently excellent. If you have a favorite dish, you can count on it being prepared exactly the same way time after time. The staff is smiley and attentive, and the atmosphere is casually classy - sometimes a little noisy though. We love Chianti Grill.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all had a great time atWe all had a great time at Chiantis and we went to eat due to we had prom and I think everyone enjoyed it and we all had a great time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service we had was underThe service we had was under training. She was very nice, calm and willing to learn by listening from the trainer. We gave our 2 cents as to always smile and always get back to the customer when orders are late and always ask if anything else she can bring to them.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for working lunch. MetGreat for working lunch. Met my team for lunch and was able to discuss business while we waited for our food.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood value, enjoyable waitGood value, enjoyable wait staff, very pleasant experience.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for lunch with girlfriendsmet girlfriends for lunch. The buffet is a great value if you can control yourself.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chef at Chianti GrillThe chef at Chianti Grill in Burnsville graciously prepared a gluten free pasta plate for one of the members of our party who has celiac disease. It was much appreciated since none of the breads or pastry items served at brunch are gluten free.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful brunch. Our serverWonderful brunch. Our server Kirsten was phenomenal!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation weeksWe made a reservation weeks ago for 6:30. When we arrive we were told they were running 5 minutes behind. However we stood waiting for the next 35 minutes. I was not happy with that. However the food was wonderful and the service was great.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but goodWe brought guests this time on a Saturday night and sat in the back room at a table rather than a booth which is our normal preference. Food was terrific as usual but the noise level was very high. We enjoy th ambiance much more during the week when it's less crowded. That being said we still think of this as our favorite restaurant4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. TunaFood was outstanding. Tuna appetizer was so flavorful and Beef Medallions melted in my mouth. Everyone at the table could not stop raving about the food. We will be back.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience. BartenderFabulous experience. Bartender Cheryl was wonderful.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the steak was to dieWhile the steak was to die for, the service was extremely slow. Maybe more servers on would help. We shouldn't have to wait over 15 minutes to give our drink order. When asked what the meatballs were made of, the server didn't know what meat was in there. She informed us she knew the sausage was pork. Most sausage is, and we didn't ask about that. The fish was great, the steak was the best I've had, but the sauce on the meatballs was too full of herbs and different seasoning. True Italian isn't over done with herbs and spices.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesThe lunch buffet is so tasty and a very good value. Service is always attentive and servers are pleasant and helpful.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - there with 3Great food - there with 3 of my kids later in the evening, excellent service.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only down fall was weThe only down fall was we had an 11:00 am reservation. We waited 35 minutes and our pager never went off so talked to the girls and they told me someone checked in with the same name...we had a pager.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI had lunch at this restaurantI had lunch at this restaurant for the first time and will go back again. It was a "girls" lunch and I had requested a round table so we could all visit. We had a table in the perfect spot! The restaurant is quite large and plenty of spaces in between tables, but we were pretty much in a spot by ourselves and it was great. Once you get through the huge drink menu in the front, they have a very nice lunch menu. I had a chicken caesar salad which was huge and took half of it home. It was a lot of lettuce and could have used some more "caesar". Other girls had the walleye sandwich which was good, and there was one order of chicken marsala which she said was excellent.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was excellent andOur server was excellent and the food was very good. We have gone here before and enjoyed it, not sure why we haven't come back until now. We will be sure to remedy that.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to the lounge for happyGo to the lounge for happy hour and graze your way through the appetizer menu. The spicy chicken flatbread is awesome and the meatball sliders amazing!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service right fromExcellent service right from the front desk all the way to the bar!
