A word from Giorgione
Experiencing Giorgione is a feast for the senses...the moment you walk in you are taken by our modern and elegant decor outlined by a full service oyster bar. A custom made fireplace warms your body and prepares your taste buds for a truly authentic Italian table experience...from our signature fried artichokes, wood fired thin crust pizzas, to our mouth watering pasta and fish specials...the grand finale offers a flourless chocolate cake or our light yet ever so satisfying 20 layer crepe cake is heaven on a plate! If you still have room after dessert, complete your Giorgione dining experience with our cheese plate, which transports you through four regions of Italy! Giorgione is for the sophisticated palate that craves simple, authentic Italian fare coupled with an ambiance that is modern yet warm, elegant and fun!

    I hadn't been here for probably 5 years and am happy to report nothing's changed...in a good way! So nice to find a restaurant that is still focused on good food, good service and lovely ambiance, rather than pandering to the latest crowd and the latest trend!

    The ambience was fine. The food was just okay with not much in terms of imagination or presentation. Certain items delivered to the table were different than that listed on the menu. The service was generally poor with waiters not having much of a clue. Would not return.

    I like the food at Giorgione. I like the airy feeling of the restaurant. It is a very pleasant place to sit with friends and eat good, fresh food and drink very well-chosen wine. But I never feel all that welcome at Giorgione and that is because the waiters never seem to care that much whether I am there or not. This was particularly true on my latest visit there. Every time our party of four needed the waiter, we had to flag him down. And I swear that the restaurant wasn't all that busy. Now I don't need a server to be a best friend or always be at my beck and call, but a waiter at a restaurant of Giorgione's caliber should be professional enough to check in once in a while on their guests. Make us feel welcome and we'll be back.

    AJ and his amazing staff provide everything you need for an elegant and fun evening of great food and service. The food is beyond amazing. As an Italian I am very picky where I eat Italian food, and we are here almost weekly. It's that good. And the best cosmopolitans I've had were at Giorgione. You are guaranteed a perfect time when you come.

    Everyone must try this hidden gem. Exceedingly well-sourced ingredients make for great eating, especially in the fresh, unadorned manner one finds here. This formula should come as no surprise to those aware that the owner is Giorgio Deluca, founder of the eponymous, legendary high-end grocery. Staples of cucina italiana, like prosciutto, are first-rate, of course. But so are imaginatively and unusually prepared dishes like the grey sole. With a capable and reasonably-priced wine list, arranged by their Italian origins, there is much to like here. And don't forget deserts — straight-forward and elegant, just like the owner.

    We arrived on time and were placed in the back away from the good atmosphere. We were impressed with the product quality, but not with the cooking. It was ok, but we felt that they underseasoned the food, and were missing details.

    Giorgione has become one of my favorite restaurants to go to if I want good food and a nice civilized ambiance. Love the avocado and artichoke appetizers. Service the other night was a bit off which was not normal for them. The waiter didn't even bother coming over to check on us so I didn't have my usual perfect experience there that night. I would not hesitate to go back though. I always walk away happy.

    Dined on 3/11/2014
    This spot used to be one of my go tos. I'd say I went at least a dozen times between 2010-2012. I stopped going so often because I moved. I was super excited to go back the other night but ended up being pretty disappointed. Everything was "fine" (except for the tuna tartare appetizer, which was fishy, & it's my fault that I didn't send it back). But "fine" isn't what Giorgione used to be-it was great back in the day. Prices have also risen dramatically. Bummer.

    From the pizza to the raw bar (8 kinds of oysters East/West Coast} to their terrific specials...Giorgione's food is always excellent. The service is also impeccable and they have one of my favorite bars in the city. Very unassuming from the street, the door opens to a hustle/bustle, chic NYC eatery. Not to be missed.

    Anna
    Dined on 1/29/2014
    I am almost 8 months pregnant, and when the host showed me to my table it was the kind where you have to squeeze in between tables with other diners on either side. With my belly I clearly wasn't going to make it without pulling out the table. I thought the server would do that, but instead he just stood there, waiting for me to sit, and finally I started to pull it out myself. But it was a bit heavy and made a loud scraping noise so I turned and asked him to help me--a bit incredulous by this time. He did so, but without a sorry or eye contact or acknowledgement of any kind. Once in I said "thank you!" and he colored just slightly but that was it. Maybe he doesn't like pregnant women? Maybe he didn't notice? Either way it was poor service.

    The food was very good. The "management" of the restaurant was very nice and accommodating. Our waiter while not rude or clueless, was not what I would call attentive. It did not ruin the meal by any means but he just was not what I would call a good waiter. Two of us had pasta dishes, both were very good. One person had the lamb chops which were excellent and one person had the chicken which was also very good Very fun neighborhood restaurant

    I met my college roommate and her family here after 15 years. Due to show tickets we were there during their "early" menu which was not the full dinner menu....it didn't matter the food and choices were wonderful. The staff took care of our large party (10) without fuss and as the restaurant filled up we were attended to just as we were when we were the only party eating dinner. I highly recommend the pizza. Great ambience, great place in a great area of Soho. Can't wait to go back!

    Eating here helped make the day fantastic! Love this place-and everything about it! My third time dining here and every plate served is delicious! Julia was a very nice and efficient waitress. We had a round of apps for the five of us: artichokes, burrata, fritto misto and endive salad. Plates were empty! Good fresh food made well & simply. Looking forward to returning.

    Slightly off the beaten track in the South Village sits that beautifully designed Italian restaurant. From the friendly welcome to excellent service and wonderfully creative food, you'll not be disappointed. The orata is served whole with bones removed and is simply heaven. All pastas are well made and perfectly seasoned. Excellent wine list. Worth the walk.

    The staff was professional but not particularly friendly. Could be a bit more welcoming. This restaurant was recommended as a good place to meet someone for an early dinner with a another woman who works in the area. Perhaps we didn't meet the preferred customer demographic. At least that is how it felt.

    Really had an awesome late night dinner here. Ordered the lamb and it was to die for. Also ordered the raviolis very fresh and perfectly cooked. I'm picky about my food and I could not have had a better dinner here. If I'm back in NYC again I will for sure come here again. There was a rockin' Irish bar across the street too.
