Always enjoy a special dinner at Gianni’s
Great food, dining outside with perfect summer evening with great people watching. excellent experience
Gianni's is always guaranteed to be top-notch. The ambience, the wait staff and the food - always amazing!!! My wife and I were there on Saturday, July 13th to celebrate my birthday. We started with the table - side spun salad, as always. My wife had the 6 oz. filet mignon and I had the 8 oz. filet mignon. My sides were a baked potato and creamed corn, she had the risotto. The filets were so tender they just melted in your mouth. I think the chef and cooks at Gianni's have that recipe down pat!!!! Again, a 5-million star rating!!!!
Excellent food, service and we loved the spin salad experience!!
The steak, corn with bacon were great. The green beans were a disappointment. The risotto could have been tastier and creamier. The dessert was amazing and thank you for giving it to me for my birthday. The table side salad was great and so was the service A+.
Meal was excellent as usual.
Just a little disappointed with the server Rosie, she did a fine job but we felt rushed to order.
So ... it was a Monday night and our 25th wedding anniversary. I had indicated that on our reservation. The 16 year old host was hesitant about giving us a 4 person table in the shade on the otherwise semi empty patio. I pushed her saying there was plenty of room. It’s just disappointing to spend $200 on a dinner and get attitude and no special treatment on a special night. Just saying ...
Great spot for a good steak and the spun salad is a MUST.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Celebrated our Anniversary with friends on the patio.
Food was fantastic! We had a large group and the waitress was so accommodating!
I have eaten there many times. I am in your system for reservations. Often in the bar area. The drinks always good. We ordered the French onion soup and were disappointed. We have ordered it many times before with the crusted cheese on top. This time it was greasy, no crusted cheese but a dollop melting in broth. Parm crispy bread always a winner. Didn’t care for your new “rolls” Your made to order salad always good as are the steaks.
It was a fantastic night there. Everything was wonderful!!!
Great burgers and service was AWESOME, will definitely be going back
Had an enjoyable great tasting meal!! Our waitress, Betsy, was great!!
One of us ordered a steak that was supposed to be prime but was chewy and flavorless the other ordered fish which was acceptable but also somewhat without flavor. On the plus side the experience of eating on their outside patio was delightful and pretty much saved the night.
Possible excuse, it was July 4th, the restaurant was not busy (while we were there) and given the holiday, the restaurant's A team might have been away.
We didn't complain because that would have spoiled the occasion for us. We MIGHT give it another chance but not on a holiday.
Wife birthday. Mentioned to receptionist. Nothing done.
This experience was fantastic! I have entertained clients at many 5 star restaurants that were much more pricy, but this exceeded all. The steaks were done perfectly, very flavorful and the roasted garlic added a very nice touch. I would highly recommend.
A favorite spot to celebrate special days. As always, the service was top notch,, the food excellent and the setting lovely.
the food was very good, recommend the table side salad (you'll want to split with someone, it's big). it was a busy night but they are not the best communicators. Ordered drinks at bar area prior to being seated, then had to wait about 5 minutes to pay bar tab before I could join my wife at our table. when the server presented me the bill, I gave him my credit card. when he returned, the bill had been changed to included the bar bill (the one I had already paid with the bartender) but the server didn't mention anything about adding it. I noticed the change and explained to the server that I had already paid the bar tab. so he asks me to produce a receipt! I showed him my receipt, then it took quite awhile for him to get the manager to revise the bill. they finally got things straighten out but they could certainly work on their internal communication and also explaining to the customer that they made a change. Might be awhile before we return.
Hi Terri ,
We met on Saturday night when I came up to the bar to order one more glass of champagne to be split with Jill . A couple of things that happened that night with Betsy who was great but I had some concern on the service .
1- For my steak I ordered not the filet but a different one on the menu as I did not mention it Betsy as to have to prepare a new one but I wanted to mention it to you as I am a regular .
2-When I was talking with you and had my check in hand and Betsy approached and said what do you need and I said one glass of champagne and when I got done talking to you Betsy had brought 2 glasses as Jill and I just wanted 1 to split not two and we did finish .
3 - I sometimes put cash down on a bill to cover the alcohol portion and keep the food separate. The bill was $202.00 and I gave $80 cash . Well Betsy kept coming by the table commenting the total bill is $202.00 and $122.00 as she did this three times as if I was going to tip on $122.00 . Jill heard this as well and thought this was very unprofessional as the bill should not be discussed out loud. I gave her a cash tip of not what was 20% but $25.00 as the meal mistake , drink order and coming by 3 times to say that the total is $202.00 not $122.00.
I would like to talk to you 612-508-7274 if you have time as this is not the service I normally get from Gianni's . Thank you .
I just wish they were able to give us the window tables as requested but they were full and the hostess never commented on it.
Always fantastic there. Love to go. Service, food, ambience are truly the best.
The service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. The team at Gianni’s made our 34th wedding anniversary very special. Thank you.
Always dependable, always great, food is excellent as is the service. Very happy to get a last minute reservation.
The setting of Gianni's is so wonderful, and eating outside is beautiful. The food is excellent. This is a stalwart dining establishment in Wayzata.
A wonderful summer outdoor dining experience. We like to come early and enjoy a steak, salad, and fries . . . and a glass of wine, of course.
It was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. Our server, Juan, was knowledgeable and so friendly. Service was quick and the food was delicious.
This used to be my favorite! Made reservations for four, changed to five. When we arrived they said we had to sit outside cuz can’t fit five inside. Crammed us into a table for four. Tables were wide open inside, no one ever sat at them. Service was extremely slow, asked for bread 3 times. Brought my Moms salad at entree time. Love spun salad which normally they ask which ingredients you want. Came fully loaded, my daughter hates olives and had to pick them off. I despise blue cheese, could not pick out so could not eat. Very disappointed!
Best steakhouse in the Cities. Great top notch service, food is always perfect and Terri makes sure everything is running perfect.
Great service and food! Wine list is excellent! Loved the table spun salad.
Only a gin tonic with tonic out of a machine is a no no. A gin tonic needs very good tonic.
The food is great! And we will be back :)
My steak was under cooked, otherwise it was a great experience! Our waitress was great!
Delicious, pricey but worth it. I will come back.
Our waiter was very good.
Went to celebrate Father's Day. Steaks at Gianni's are consistently good, halibut special was delicious. Server was very friendly, water glasses stayed full. One steak (thick NY Strip) had to be sent back to be cooked to desired doneness, but was handled efficiently and courteously.
My biggest complaint at giannis, as with other restaurants, is the continuous patrol by the host staff with their notepads and tablets checking to see how close diners are to finishing their meals. As we are trying to enjoy our meal these staff members are hovering in the background clearly eyeing our plates and obviously making notes about our degree of doneness. It infers that our patronage is less important than that of the next guest that takes the relaxation out and much of the pleasure out of the dining experience. I mean seriously, the only thing more intrusive would be if they actually stopped at the table and asked, “are you going to eat that, or will you be leaving soon?”
We were celebrating our Golden Anniversary and we enjoyed a great meal and great service from Emma. We had been to this restaurant several times, and we've never been disappointed.
This was our first visit to Gianni’s...and we WILL be back again! Our waiter, Nick, provided impeccable service, and the food was outstanding! We started with the pan seared ahi tuna, which was delicious. My husband and I both had the walleye, along with the potato patouille...also delicious!
Always great food!
Not only was the food excellent, but the staff was as well. Because of our waiter, John, we will certainly be back. His excellent service and outgoing personality made our anniversary meal even more special.
Service was poor, very slow. Our server passed our table frequently without a look. Would have had more drinks and as such, a larger tip, but that's his loss I guess. May not return as the food didn't make up for the crappy service.
