    Our party of two went on a Tuesday evening. We were seated promptly. Our waitress was prompt, attentive, and knowledgable about the menu. Our drinks (gin & tonic and a martini) were well made. Bread basket was frsh and warm. Entrees were excellent; properly seasoned and prepared, including my homemade pasta. Will definitely go back.

    The food is well above average in quality. The service is very good. For the price-level, I would prefer more comfortable seating that might make intimate conversation more productive. The salads were excellent: fresh and quality ingredients. The martinis are generous and prepared with skill. The deserts are fun and a great treat. It might benefit the experience to have more choices on the entree pages. I'm sure that we will return.

    We went on a Friday night and had a good meal. We weren't very hungry when we went- hot weather - so we ate light and enjoyed the meal. Would want to try some of the other heavier dishes on another occasion. The server was attentive. The atmosphere was good except for a screaming child which was annoying on a Friday when we wanted to relax after a long week. Given the martini bar atmosphere, I was surprised to see a child there. Can't hold that against the restaurant, though. We would give this a second chance.

  • A "Just Right" Kind of Restaurant

    Dined on 5/17/2014
    You want a place where the food is fresh, interesting and well prepared but you don't want to overpay. You want a place that's original and local; not a market-researched chain. You want the formality of a sit-down, full-service establishment but you don't need white table cloths. If that's what you're looking for than Giorgios is your place. My calamari was tender and fresh, not chewy, and had crisp coating. The chicken piccata coudl have used a bit more lemon but overall it was satisfying. Desert was artfully presented and, thankfully, not supersized. Wine list is in line with the restaurant. It offers good variety and quality that will fulfill all but the most sophisticated palate.

  • Great Experience for Mother's Day

    We have twice had the same server for our Mother's Day dinner, and he is outstanding. Fresh bread with dipping oil, excellent mojitos, and a menu varied enough to accomodate all members of our party of 7. A signature dish that we always order when available - Papa Alex's lamb shank. Tender lamb with large chunks of parsnips and carrots, creamy risotto - never fails to disappoint. We will return!

    I commend the server for accommodating my picky eating style/making the substitutions I requested. I do not however commend him for not explaining exactly what "fresh pasta" meant. I ordered a dish with "fresh pasta" assuming it would be "fresh pasta"-not inhouse-made sour tasting spinach pasta. Had I known this I would have ordered a penne or something more appropriate for the seafood I had in my dish. The fried calamari was basic but good, and the salad I ordered with strawberries was tasty. Service was slow, and we were there at 5pm. It took roughly 20 mins for my cappuccino to come, and we had a 7pm movie in Tyngsboro. It was a celebration dinner with my fiancé and I was quite disappointed. Wish I could write a better review!

    We had a group of six, made a reservation a week ahead of time. We walk in and sat right down. For a Saturday evening, that in itself was great. We all enjoyed our dinners, our waitress was perfect, there when we needed her, but not hanging around. We will definitely be dining here again as a group.

    Had a business lunch here. Selected the restaurant because it was in a convenient location. I was expecting this to be an 'average' lunchtime spot, but this was very high quality (espectially for the price) The group of 4 that I was with all thought the food was excellent. Staff was extremely professional, and our order came very fast. All of the food was fresh (nothing seemed to be a 'reheated' dish), and I will defintely eat here again.

    We were seated promptly (with a reservation). The food and drinks were fabulous but the service was a bit slow and could have been a little more attentive. It was, however, New Year's Eve although they weren't particularly crowded. Will definitely go back again. The braised lamb shank is marvelous as are the Espresso martinis ;)

    Our party arrived in time however we had to wait for our table. When we got to the table, there weren't enough place settings. We waited for our drink order to be taken. Server didn't introduce himself, never mentioned specials. We waited for water glasses to be filled. Except for the appetizer course we had to wait for someone's order to arrive for the course. Won't be anxious to go back. I was disappointed because I had heard good things about Giorgios in Merrimack.

    Having made reservations one would think that someone would greet patrons at the door. We stood around being ignore and finally went up to someone and mentioned our 7:00 table. We were shown our table as the hostess quickly scurried away before our party even got there. The waiter was nice enough, however, people arriving 10 minutes after us got their drinks right away and we hadn't been asked yet. And the drinks....slightly watered down and it was easy to tell. I know my brand. The food was very good and that was our reason of being a repeat customer. Other than that, there was no background music, just a lot of lively chatter. The hostess or boss, rushed by our table time and again and never once stopped to ask how things were.

    Generous portions with friendly staff. Everyone enjoyed their dishes, however one wasn't a big fan of their 'sauce' - not a lot of flavor, tasted like it was just crushed tomatoes with no seasoning. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. The pumpkin margarhita was super!

    The food was unique.... Interesting choices for veggies and sides kept it from being blah. The martini bar has yummy and fancy options. I spilled a drink on our overcrowded table and was still charged for it, and with a $240 bill I think that was a bad move. Otherwise it was a great place.

    The ravioli asparagus soup had a very odd, vey lemony taste to it and I could not finish it. The supposed “fresh” haddock buried in green panko crumbs was anything but fresh. I could have made a better meal at home. I’m glad I had a gift card and did not have to pay out of pocket for this meal. Will never go there again. And, let’s not forget the sound system. Either a few speakers are blown or the base is turned up all the way – very annoying and distracting.

    Very good food, excellent variety on menu, which is a more imaginative and broader than most. Moist pork chop, fig compote, sweet potato baked fries. All very tasty. Other diners enjoyed shrimp, pasta and beef dishes. A little noisy on a busy night with its tile floor.
