    Met friend for a special birthday dinner. Sat in reserved booth around bar. Food excellent -had the filet. Try the stuffed chop my friend said it was excellent. Service friendly and prompt. Bar not loud -but full. Was concerned being seated in a bar area. Nice crowd. Lights very dim bring your specs.Overall -highly recommend. Dress was business casual. Enjoyed- valet parking available.

    I regularly return to Giumarello's when I want to celebrate milestone events in my life and the lives of friends. Giumarello's is a first rate restaurant with all the right touches. I especially enjoy the live piano playing which complements them dal beautifully. All four of us thought our food was exceptional. I think the price was a little high. I highly recommend Giumarello's.

    Our server Zack was great very attentive and knows the menu. The atmosphere was nice with the piano player in the background. I feel menu prices are a little high. You have to order veges along with your meal for another charge. Overall however the food is very good service was great and the atmosphere very nice. I guess you get with you pay for..... We will go back next time to sit in the bar area for appetizers.

    OUr service was quick and the server did all he could to make our experience great. I have been to this restaurant twice before in the evening and always had a great time however i was disappointed with my main course this time. The eggplant was served cold and the server quickly took it back however when it returned the texture was soggy and I could not taste the eggplant. Idid not complain because it was a birthday celebration for my sister and I did not want to spoil the lunch. But I have to tell you everyone was kind and I will be back.! ( my sister the birthday girl loved the entire experience and she eats in very high end Philadelphia restaurants but I think she will be back as well)

    We were at Giumarellos for my husband's birthday. The atmosphere is very nice. It was a very fine dining experience. No cell phones and people were actually dressed appropriately. The food was great and we will tell our friends about it. We had not been there for a while and really like the outdoor addition.

    Restaurant impressed me right from the start with a confirmation phone call for our reservation. No waiting upon arrival. Appetizers - eggplant rollatini & fried oysters, excellent & served quickly. Chicken Marsala with crab- moist & flavorful! My husband had the macadamia encrusted cod served & ate every single bit! Desserts - excellent! Wine list - impressive! Server, Audrey, was friendly & attentive- will request next visit, which I hope is very soon! The manager even stopped by our table & checked on how we liked our meal & gave us suggestions for next time!! This restaurant was as good as any Philadelphia high end spot, if not better!! Kudos to the chef for so many wonderful menu choices and for such a member able dining experience!!

    We have been here many times in the past and always liked the place but never thought it competed with the better Philly restaurants. It does now. The new manager has raised the playing level and where the place used to lose in the details, it is now a winner. Our meal was awesome. Between the 4 of us we had crab cakes, lobster ravioli, Veal Marsala and salmon. Everyone commented how wonderful their food was. Service was impeccable and the place has a new energy that was not there before--perhaps putting a few $$$ into the decor changed the vibe. My wife and I will be back alot more than the 1 or 2 times a year we used to visit. I strongly recommend to everyone.

    First time we have been back in many years and the food, the service and the ambience has not changed. One of the best places for special occasions or just a casual meal depending on your desires. While we choose the main dining room the outdoor patio and bar area would be great for a less formal setting to enjoy a great assortment of smaller plates and appetizers. Looking forward to our next visit which will be real soon.

    I hadn't been to Giumarello's in years--don't ask why, I can't explain. It had been my favorite restaurant and I hoped that although it's now a great destination for happy hour, that it would still be awesome spot for special occasions. I was not disappointed. Even sitting in a booth in the bar area, the noise level was fine--no blenders whirring (smart move, G!!) and no children of any sort (so, so nice). Our meals were divine, from the salad to the dessert. I've not ever had better filet. The drinks were exceptional--still rockin' the martinis. My only blip in the whole evening was that our server wasn't the friendliest. The guys who took our plates away seemed more concerned that we were happy and enjoying ourselves.

    Stopped by for the first time. It won't be my list visit. The entire meal was outstanding. My wife had a Cold Blueberry soup to start and it was excellent. I ordered the fruit and cheese plate never guessing that I could feed 3 people with it. It had 4 kinds of cheese with about 7 pieces of each, 4 breadsticks wrapped in prosciutto, 1/2 a pear sliced real thin, strawberries, a huge pile of grapes, a bowl of mixed nuts and a lot of crackers. Then the house salad which was a good size and very crisp. My wife had Lobster Ravioli which were well stuffed. There were 6 on the plate and they were very good. I had the Macadamia crusted cod with Lobster mashed potatoes. Outstanding. Our waiter Zach was right there when needed. Great place

    As parent's of a 5 year old, we cherish our "date nights". This month was my husband's turn to pick and what a gem! The food was perfect! We started with the Parmesan Crusted Fried Oyster's and the Tuna Tartar appatizers. Our dinner courses were grilled Chilean Sea Bass for me and Veal Francaise for my husband with a side if the Ricotta Gnocchi that were light and pillowy. Delicious! This is definitly a 5 star meal in our book would do very well up against many of the city restaurants we've eaten.
