    We found our dining experience very interesting. It was employees on edge with the owner constantly barking at them for doing something wrong! There is a time and a place for training...just not in front of customers during there entire dining evening! I think we will just wait a few months for the management to get their staff trained before returning again. Most employees will not stay on board with the harsh treatment demonstrated at our dining experience.

    A new place for a great restaurant. It was our first time there so it would have been nice to be told about the sunset dinners! we were there before 6:30 and would have tried one had we known. The owner corrected a couple of staff in front of the patrons that should have been done in private.

    This restaurant just opened on the waterfront two weeks ago. They have been a very popular place in Bellingham in their previous location and are adjusting to the move to a larger venue. The food was great, they have many Italian specialties that you do not find in other Italian restaurants. The service is very good and they have enough staff to so that you do not get lost in the crowd. Great location, this will be a good move for them.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/3/2010
    Giuseppe's Al Porto Restaurant was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! He has really created an outstanding setting for an incredible meal. He welcomed us as if we were family, and visited our table several times to make sure we were enjoying our experience. The view of the harbor was perfect, and the sunset that night was amazing. The only thing lacking was the waitstaff's knowledge of the wine selection, but considering the fact that they have only been open in the new location about a month, I am sure this will come very soon.

    This is an exciting new waterfront restaurant in Bellingham. Excellent outdoor dining experience at the marina. The food was outstanding-best I've eaten in Bellingham. Do not miss this restaurant. Get there while outdoor evening dining is still an option.

    The new Giuseppe's is great. It is bright and has an updated look without the uber modern look. Great outdoor seating area, nice view of the harbor/marina, inside is light without being overly bright. Best Italian restaurant I've been to outside of NY. and probably best in Washington state. The food and service is impeccable and they have a great wine list. Thanks for a great dinning experience Giuseppe!

    The atmosphere was great being on the water and everything new and clean. The food was very good, but I was a little surprised when the waiter asked us if we wanted a salad as an appetizer (one does not come with the meal). I would strongly suggest an appetizer or salad as the portions are not very large. Overall it was a great experience.

    The dining experience was excellent! Our server was very knowledgable, fun, and glad to ask the chef if we had questions. Giuseppe himself, greeted us and even insisted we take a larger, more private table for my wife's birthday dinner for two. The food was amazing and they worked very patiently with our food allergies. Thank you!

    We visited on the opening weekend. The server was so-so. We wanted to hear to hear about the specials and were told about two items. The table behind us heard a whole lot more than we did! The food was okay- I had the pasta with eggplant and tomatoes and it was so spicy that it was hard to taste anything else. The room was very pretty and the view is great. I am sure that once everybody has been there for a while it will be great.

    We had a wonderful evening with good friends. The owner was so gracious and welcoming and our server was very dear. One of our party said as she took her first bite, 'Perfecto!' And once the outside dining is completed, we will return to have another evening at Giuseppe's to experience the additional lovely setting. This is definitely going to be one of our favorite places to come to especially when friends and family come for a visit. Thanks for the special night out!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/13/2010
    We went on opening night, so there were a few glitches. Hopefully, these will be corrected. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining the problems, and we could understand. We will return later to see how things are going. One complaint is that it is very noisy. We were seated near the bar, so that could be an explanation. At our table of 4, it was difficult to have a conversation. We also walked around after dinner and felt that there really is not a quiet area.The food was excellent, and the wine we ordered was out, so we were offered another higher priced bottle for the same price as our original one.
