Chianti Grill - Burnsville
Anniversary 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 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 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 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 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.

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.

It was completely booked in the dining room but Ingrid our awesome waitress in the bar area made sure to help find us a table and was so sweet and energentic we can't wait to go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFancy Casual DiningWe've been here multiple occasions, and we're never disappointed. The food is always amazing, the service is good and the prices are decent. A lot of what I'll call 'fancy' places do a la carte for sides but at Chianti, you get bread (ask for the breadsticks!), a salad and then side dish with your meal. Maybe Chianti isn't considered the upper echelon of fine dining, but it definitely is a classy place with a nice ambiance and the food is delicious. A good value.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience. WeA wonderful experience.

We have been given stellar service with incredible staff that take time to listen and are very knowledgeable. Twice we have come for our anniversary, and we have celebrated Mother's Day, our birthdays and even have brought guests to share the experience. The staff have demonstrated they care for your experince, and desire you to return again. The food has been top notch, from the crab cakes, to the fish, and they have given me new ways to enjoy steak. We have visited during brunch, and were amazed at the selection, quantity, and as always the quality of their selections. On our second visit, we had the sommlier spend time explaining the qualities of wine.5/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
