    We love Chianti Grill. It's hard to say much bad about it. It's also very close to our house, so we just had an impulse to go out to eat, checked Open Table on the smart phone and sure enough, Chianti Grill had a table for 2 available in 15 minutes, so we took the reservation, hopped in the care and enjoyed great food and conversation.

    Although we don't get there as much as we used to due to moving to a different part of the Twin Cities, we always enjoy Chianti Grill. The pasta is always spot on (he always gets their Chicken Parmigiana and I love the Lobster Ravioli) and the service - from the host to the bartender to the wait staff - is always friendly, engaging, and professional.

    Had reservations and got seated immediately on a Friday night. Food was good but not great value for the cost. Table/seat had some crumbs that we brushed off. Waiter/service was very good. Would not upgrade to balsamic gorgonzola salad again...a teaspoon of cheese on some greens isn't worth the $1.50. Wife and I ordered fish and steak (in a traditional Italian restaurant we should have ordered traditional Italian so shame on us). Steak was very good and fish was OK. Only had the choice of one side...vegetable or starch. Both meals needed both a veggie and a starch so left feeling unsatisfied. Two beers, two glasses of wine, two entrees, no app and no dessert cost $120 with tip...seemed like too much for what we got.

    I love the 8 oz filet mignon with garlic mashed and the balsamic gorgonzola salad. When I specify Medium the filet is done to perfection. The bread is chewy and tasty too, and wine list is plenty adequate. Our server was the perfect blend of friendly & professional. It's a Burnsville treasure.

    Whether you are in the mood for an excellent (and reasonably priced) Sunday brunch buffet or dinner any night of the week, South of the River foodies should visit Chianti Grill. They've been around for years, but have only improved with time. The waitstaff is obviously well-trained and able to knowledgeably describe menu items, wines and beers. I have visited Chianti Grill twice recently - once with a friend and once with my family - and the waiter not only remembered me from my earlier visit, he remembered what I ordered. Very impressive! If you like butternut squash ravioli, go there soon as it is a seasonal special and is delicious.

    My family and I had a great evening at your restaurant. I had tried to get together with my family since spring and was so happy when we were able to connect at your establishment. All of our food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Our waiter was really on top of things and very friendly. The interior of the Chianti Grill was open and airy with a rustic stone feel. The openess made you feel as though you were dining in the great outdoors. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to all my friends.

    Great location to celebrate, or go anytime! Decided to go to Chianti's to celebrate joint anniversary - 50 years for in-laws and 18 years for myself and husband. Our boys came with (ages 15 and 13). Everyone absolutely loved the ambiance, the food, the service. The buffet had a wide variety of selections, with omlette station that moved very quickly, waffles and sticky buns were the boys favorites, along with eggs benedict and biscuits with gravey. The pasta was fabulous as well. And must not forget the desserts - absolutely yummy. We had a wonderful time and the wait staff were very attentive - helped with taking pictures in several spots and making our day special.

Being in the management business myself, I know it takes a collaboration on all levels to operate such a great restaurant and I appreciate all those aspects every time I visit! b

    I have been to the Chianti Grill 5 times for brunch and I loved it! My visit on 10/19 I was a bit disappointed in a few things. The scrambled eggs were dry and dropped out on the plate like a lump! This is usually what I get and they are usually soft and creamy. The cubed potatoes were very hard and very dry! Usually when I had them they were delicious! But, the bread was great along with the all the sweets were great! Especially the caramel rolls, wonderful. Another issue which is important is good coffee at a brunch. From first cup to last was barely warm! BUT the taste was great! The service was wonderful and very friendly. I will continue to go back for brunch at the Chianti Grill, everyone can be off their game sometime.

    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.

    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.
