Guido's - Calabasas reviews from OpenTable diners

    Guido's has been our go to restaurant for occasions and casual dinners. Food, service, ambience was perfect. Unfortunately, we were informed that they are closing on October 5. If you have a chance to go there before October 5, we highly recommend it!

    Our group of 4 foodie/winos had high hopes for Guidos - they have "no corkage" Tuesdays. The restaurant was nearly empty, except for the lively bar. As I find often, when a restaurant in slow, service suffers. We had to ask to place orders, get water refills, etc. We had appetizers which were so-so: the shrimp was overcooked and the prosciutto seemed tired. My entree was salmon in some sort of creamy sauce - it was mushy. My colleagues dishes were equally umimpressive: steak, veal and cioppino. They dont have espresso, which seems odd for an Italian restaurant. Too bad the food wasn't better. On a bright note, there was no corkage for all four bottles and they accommodated us with fresh glasses for each bottle.

    One of our favorite places to eat. Had fantastic food and service. Everything tasted fresh. They were out of our favorite dessert, the Vanilla Creme Brulee so we ordered the fresh Strawberry Shortcake (it had another name that I can't remember) which was out of this world. I even ordered 2 to go to bring for people to share at work the next day. They let me try a sample of a wine that they were not not sure I would like with my dish and I ended up ordering what was recommended instead. It seemed to be a slow night, but the noise level is always reasonable. We have never had any difficulty having a conversation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/29/2013
    Pasta Bolognese and seafood pasta were both too salty. The piccata was moderately okay.. For the food we ate, it was over-priced. Also, we paid $20 per bottle for corkage, and were not even given clean glasses when the waiter poured the second bottle of a different wine than the first. Not classy!!

    Wonderful food, outstanding service and quiet enough to talk. Server was unobtrusive but attentive. Manager stopped by to insure we were satisfied with everything. Wine list is well thought out with excellent choices. This has become one of our favorites.

    Guido's had excellent food, efficient servers and accommodated the kids' requests. That being said, it was a little empty and somewhat romantic, so we'll go back, just to with the kids! Great selection of wine, beer and cocktails.

    Our 2nd meal in two weeks; consistantly excellent. Had the crab cake appetizer - fresh, no fillers, excellent flavor. The Ahi Tuna main course with a balsamic reduction sauce was amazing! I had put in a special request with my reservations for the Chilean Sea Bass, but was told that it was not available because the chef wasn't happy with the quality of it from their supplier, so he sent it back. That shows how quality conscious they are!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/29/2013
    I found this place on OpenTable as I am always looking for new places to eat. I made reservations for 5 for my birthday just some friends getting together for a nice meal. As we approached the restaurant the manager was standing out front and greeted us and immediately knew of our reservation and seated us immediately. The service was amazing, the server was attentive and knowledgeable. I am both gluten and lactose intolerant and she knew the menu and options and I was able to get exactly what I wanted while still following my dietary restrictions. If you are looking for amazing Italian....this should definitely be one of the place to go to.

    Nice restaurant I'd never been to before. Nice ambience, quiet. Dimmed lighting. I wasn't crazy about my dish (but it might just be my choice, not the way it was cooked), but my date loved hers. Great service.

    We enjoyed the restaurant immensely. The salad with pears was out of this world; also the garlic bread that accompanied it. The pasta with salsiccia was excellent. The staff is very accommodating and gave us wonderful service. This restaurant is one of the best that I have gone to in the valley.

    I went here with 5 of my girlfriends for a "mom's night out. We sat on the patio as it was such a nice day. The food was wonderful! I ordered the chicken piccatta - awesome!!! The only downside was that the parking was very limited. They do have a valet, but if you like to self-park, like I do, it's a challenge. Would definitely go there again.

    We loved our evening at Guido's. Started out on the patio, but headed indoors when it got too cool and the staff could not have been more gracious. The food was wonderful...fresh, well seasoned, beautifully presented...lovely Pinot from Paso at our server's recommendation...a terrific local hang that feels upscale and well-tended without also feeling pretentious. Well done!

    On a very slow restaurant night, only 5 tables or so being served, the food was just average. For a total bill of $60 this meal could have been duplicated in many places with better results. To have exceptional service and highest level of preparation would seem a good choice on the restaurant's part. We have been wanting to try this local spot, but sadly, we will not likely return.

    A bit frantic at first. Saturday at 7:15. Valet late. No one in front of house to greet and seat. Nice booth. Slow order on drinks. Tuna tartare was delicious but an unattractive grey color. Caesar salad was heavy on the anchovies, and light on the garlic.. Special striped sea bass was excellent. Lobster Ravioli was a bit,soggy. Too much sauce., overcooked. A good meal overall ,but not special. Prices a touch high for,the,quality of the food.

    I got there about 30 minutes before they opened for dinner and the manager saw me outside and invited me in...GREAT start!!! I ordered a limoncello, which was tasty and just strong enough. Then, I felt like trying their minestrone soup but was worried about the pasta in it, being that I am a glutard and can't have any wheat, rye or barley products. The waiter reassured me that the chef would be happy to make mine without pasta...another WIN I ordered the frutti del Mare salad which was lightly dressed with a delicious and gluten free dressing. I LOVE this restaurant and recommend it HIGHLY!

    The food here was outstanding. I had the veal picatta and it was very tender and the sauce was out of this world! One thing that really stood out was the the server, Brooke. My lady and I were both dressed in black and for the first time in all of my dining experiences she asked if we would like black napkins since we were wearing black clothing! We couldn't believe how thoughtful that was. I've been to a lot of fine restaurants including Morton's and Maestros and never had that question posed to me! This place is a real gem and I recommend it to everyone.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. Menu was more than sufficient even though it was New Years Eve. All entrees were well prepared and tasty (especially the rack of lamb). Service was good and waitress agreed to a requested substitution of side dish even though rule was no substitutions that evening. Brought our own wine and corkage charge was moderate. All in all a delightful evening.
