Our waiter was outstanding, working with the two young people we had with us. The only drawback was it was way too loud to be able to have a conversation. This was our first time in Charlie Gitto's and I would come back again but a smaller group of people. Thanks for your service.

We were in town for a week long event and went the prior evening, which was absolutely excellent in every aspect.

This time (a day later), the service was horrible. I don’t fault the server either - she’d been there (according to her) less than two weeks and had not clue one about fine dining. Which was weird (to us) because the evening before the service was knowledgeable and stellar.

We were in Wildwood / Chesterfield a week and this was by far the best dining experience, though I hope the management hears the importance of oversight and training with new staff.

Were in town for a an annual conference (National) and took a friend / colleague to a nice dinner.

This experience was perfect - great food, great service. Great wine options and good cocktails.

Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommend.

Recommender by a local colleague the experience and food was good; I had marsala and mushroom filet mignon. However side of asparagus didn't go with entree. And tiramisu was underwhelming.

Service was terrible. We did not see our waiter after we ordered and received drinks for at least 20 minutes when we finally ordered our food. Then we did not see him at all until we asked for the check. I ordered dessert to go and never received it. I would recommend this restaurant to others with the hope that the service would be better.

I have had several good and very good meals at Gitto's through the years. The meal I had the other night was exemplary in every possible way. The Mediterranean salad, the Filet and Snapper entries my wife and I had, the creamed spinach and the side pasta were all so tasty I didn't want the dinner to end. Service was excellent. Perfect night out. Very much in rarified air. Thank you Gitto's.

I've eaten here six or seven times. Seems to have gone downhill over the years. Had lunch yesterday with a colleague. Service was a little better than mediocre. $12 salad was not the "pretty good size" the server described. If I didn't have bread I'd have left very hungry. Could have gone without listening to the owner swear up a storm meeting with his staff two tables over. Friend said the roast beef sandwich was really good.

The food and atmosphere was great. The service was not good. We had to ask 3 times to get more bread. We had a party of 6 and we had to wait over an hour for our food and we were seated at 6:00 and the dining room wasn’t filled yet.

Our dinner was excellent, except for the service. Our server was energetic, but needs more training. He consistently reached over one of us to server someone else. At the adjacent table of 10, he passed desert from one end of the table for the patrons to pass down the table, like it was "home-style". At the end of our meal, we asked for refills of coffee and he seemed to forget to do this. I asked a second time and we were finally served. Again, more training is needed.

We were celebrating a birthday and chose Charlie Gitto’s for our special occasion. Although we had reservations, we still had to wait for an extra 25 minutes to be seated. So, that was not the best start to the visit. We totally understand a few minute (10-15) wait. When we finally were seated, it took quite some time for our order to be taken. We each ordered a salad, one caesar and a blue cheese wedge. The wedge was ordered with blue cheese dressing instead of the dressing typically served. It was wonderful and I would highly recommend it that way. It was more than I could eat. The Caesar salad was good as well. I ordered the Chicken Spedini and my spouse ordered Chicken Marsala. Both dinners were wonderful! Charlie Gitto’s is typically an excellent place to get an amazing Italian meal. My spouse was offered a piece of cake for the birthday celebration which was a nice touch. Then upon paying the bill, the charges to our card were wrong. I guess our server didn’t look it over and just ran the wrong numbers. It was corrected before we left after we brought it to her attention but this did add to a poor experience. Being truthful though, it is very sad when the service doesn’t match up. Dining is a total experience and the overall experience was less than par. We will definitely try again. The food is very very good. Hopefully the experience will match the next time.

We frequent Gitto’s and the food is great. The disappointment is the service. They are very quick to say something can’t be done and when pressed to ask the kitchen we are always told there was no problem. However, the waiters make it a point to let us know that this was an exception that they had to negotiate for us and an inconvenience that is not normally done which I find hard to believe.

The servers may be too busy flipping the tables to truly understand what a good customer experience means.

Average food and poor service it seems unless they know you (I’m from out of town). I did get to hear how Charlie was in Asia for 3 weeks and a pregnant girl complain a lot.
