    We have had many wonderful experiences at this restaurant, but unfortunately, this one was an outlier. I suspect our server was fairly new. Initially, he and other servers were very proactive and the service seemed very good. However, after we ordered our meals, we went over 45 minutes without anyone coming back to the table. No refilling of water, no noticing that our drinks had been empty for half an hour and no food. Ultimately one of our party spoke to our waiter who said the food was coming and it did 5 minutes later. Another server came and said he was taking over for our first server and at that point, the service seem to improve significantly. When they asked if he wanted dessert, we said no, but the waiter insisted saying that it was “on them” and that they were very sorry because they knew how long we’ve been waiting. It then took over 10 minutes for the dessert (which we had not ordered). Unfortunately, when we received the bill, they had actually charged us for the “comp’d” desserts. When we brought that to our servers attention, he apologized profusely and no charged us for the dessert and appetizers. In fairness, the food was great and our reservations were at 3 o’clock, so we were probably between chefs. However, we are used to great service, and this was not the experience to which we are accustomed. We will most likely come back, but I have to say we were pretty disappointed overall.

    Outdoor seating is well spaced and heaters turned on as the evening chill started.

    Outside atmosphere is relaxing (could build a sound barrier along Hwy29!). Service slow/no fault of server. He was spread thinly and doing his utmost. Caesar was Ok but dressing lacked the expected zing. Lamb shank Ok but needed more flavor. Veal parmesan lacked adequate sauce, but pasta was good quality. Corkage on website says $20 when they actually charge $35. Overall good evening.

    A wonderful restaurant with amazing food and service!! Glenda our server was phenomenal and made us feel right at home. She never forgot about us and brought our courses out one by one without any hesitation. The plates were beautifully decorated and tasted delicious? We will definitely be coming back in the near future! Thank you Bistro Don Giovanni for making the dining experience for our family unforgetable!

    My mother, labradoodle and I felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. I have a food allergy and our very attentive waiter made sure to point out what I should should avoid from the menu. We had the calamari, octopus salad and pork chops. I enjoyed an excellent chocolate martini. I will definitely be back. Everything was delicious!
