    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.

    The only thing that would have made our visit even better would be a different table configuration. Next time, when we make our reservation, we will specifically request the round table for 6 rather than the "C" shaped table.

    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.

    We are very loyal guests of Chianti Grill as are many of our friends and family members. Unfortunately, we were highly disappointed in our last visit. My husband ordered the featured center cut sirloin, medium and it was not only well done but lacked any flavor what so ever and the arugula salad on top was overkill! We couldn't even see the steak. While I appreciated a special request being met for the sea bass I ordered, it came out barely warm and borderline undercooked. I sent it back. The garlic butter on the veg medley is far too over powering. I love garlic but even that haunted me for the rest of the night into the wee hours. Our server was sweet but a bit unattentive.

    We enjoy Chianti Grill at least once a month or more. Wait staff is excellent, well groomed and non-hovering. Checked in just about the right number of times. Food is excellent. Love the omelet station for brunch. Nice mix of treats and healthy fare.

    Chianti Grill has my favorite Sunday Brunch. I have gone at least a dozen times and everyone I bring is impressed with the quality of the food. They have: made to order omelets, waffles (strawberries and whipped cream too), sausage, bacon, potatoes, fruit, Eggs Benedict, pasta, fish, pizza, cinnamon rolls, pulled apart caramel rolls, and tons of desserts. All you can eat for $13.95.

    Very good food and ambience, as usual. Dinner and drink service was a bit slow compared to your usual very high standards. The Ketel One very dirty martini arrived very weak and not so dirty. My Macallan single malt arrived with no rocks and was a little watered down. Both took longer than usual. Not even an apology from our server, who was otherwise on top of his game. Unfortunate that this was our 27th anniversary dinner.

    Chianti Grill makes some excellent small pecan rolls, served warm, at brunch - yummy! The brunch is buffet style, with made-to-order omelettes, and a nice selection of breakfast and lunch items. Good value. Note that beverages are not included, but still a good value. The desserts are beautifully displayed. Attentive service. Noise level lively but appropriate for Sunday brunch. Will definitely return.

    Last night 8/23/14 my boyfriend and myself made a reservation @ Chianti for 8:30. When we arrived we were promptly seated. Our server Clint was over within 2 minutes and was very friendly. We always go to Chianti for special occasions but last night was just a date night. Clint was wonderful. He seemed to really care about us and our experience.

    My husband and I found a babysitter and finally had a night out for dinner alone. I requested a quiet table away from families or children (I'd rather not listen to other kids on our night away). We were greeted and seated right away. Our table was towards the back and against a wall as requested. Unfortunately there were two large tables of adults right next to us who decided to stand around and talk and laugh loudly. They were so loud that it was hard to order when our server showed up. Not the restaurant's fault, but still annoying. The food was good, the wine and beer lists extensive. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, if blandly. The side dishes were good and the portion sizes were right.

    This has always been one of our favorite places to eat. We were a table of 4 and 2 of us ordered sea bass. My friends sea bass came and he couldn't even get his fork through it, it was so tough. He told the waitress and management came over and offered to re-cook that same piece of fish. He said no, they offered to get him a menu to order something else. The rest of us were completely finished with our meal when our friend finally got his order. Horrible experience. Management did not handle very well. When we left, not one soul said thank you for coming, or anything. The two girls were laughing and giggling at the reception desk and did not even notice us. Will be a very long time before we go back......
