    We had a great dinner, celebrating a birthday. The spun salad was fresh & light, filet was delicious, walleye dinner hit the mark and the sides of shrimp, fries and hashbrowns rounded out a great meal. Excellent wine list and very attentive service. Highly recommend!

    Some of the ratings were do to where we were seated. I requested up front in the bay window (non-bar side) as we were with two seniors, with walkers, in our party of seven, and also because it is easier to hear up in that alcove; difficult to hear as you get into the back area. Our server was patient with both seniors (ages 91 and 86) who asked several menu questions. Service was prompt and the dishes were wonderful!!! Of course, we know the spun salad is always a hit, the sea bass marvelous and perfectly prepared, the steak... grand and cooked to perfection. We also had three deserts and each was marvelous (bananas foster, key lime pie and ???). I just know we had none to spare (lol). Although we are aware of the higher prices at Gianni's we were pleased with everything we received. And, will certainly return. We were there to celebrate three family birthdays... they made us feel special.

    I felt very rushed! Both rushed to order and to eat. Removed the bread and butter without asking. Multiple times, staff asked if they could clear away plates while we were still chewing! I really appreciate attentive service but this was a bit too much. Our conversation was interrupted constantly. Walleye was just ok. Steak, scallops and green bean side were all amazing!

    We had a flavorful dinner stylized with a cute little framed Happy Anniversary card. The steaks, salads and beverages were all delicious and the Bananas Foster was incomparable. The inviting and friendly staff snapped a few fun pictures and the mood was warm yet private. Based on our experience, we will be back!

    We had reservations and we were seated in the bar area. The spun salad was not made at the table which was part of the experience we enjoyed in the past. For the money, I would choose 6Smith or Capital Grill. I do love the garlic crostini.

    Medium rare filet mignon was good. Asparagus was very thin and half of it was woody and could not be eaten. We ordered potatoes papallete, but we got hash browns instead. Italian wine which we selected 2019 Mara Valpolicella Ripasso was a good choice for the meal, which also included well prepared rack of lamb.

    Excellent filet prepared just as ordered. Baked potato with slightly crispy skin covered with kosher salt and with all the fresh fixings. We had a basket of warm and crusty gluten free bread, such a treat! Also had beet salad, so delicious! Thank you Gianni’s, a perfect anniversary dinner with complimentary dessert—we had cheese cake, yummy!!!

    We arrived early, at 4:15 and were the first diners in the restaurant. Our server, Rosie, was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable about all the menu items we asked about. I ordered the lobster bisque which came hot and had a lovely flavor and a large piece of lobster. We shared a Gianni’s spun salad which was on the small size for the price ($18) but very good. For dinner I ordered the 6oz filet mignon which came with Bernie sauce and was excellent. My date had the fried chicken which was also very good. For sides we shared the creamed corn (excellent), mashed potatoes (very good), and potatoes papallete (good but not excellent). We had all kinds of leftovers to bring home. Desserts included key lime pie and apple upside down cake. Both were very good but too much to eat after all that dinner. We had an excellent time.

    We love Gianni’s and are frequent visitors. We dined last night for my husband’s birthday with one other couple at a 5:15pm reservation. Food was spectacular; truly never disappoints. Service was not great. Our waitress was very nice, but everything seemed to take a long time. Our steak entrees were brought out without our sides. It took forever to get our bill. Then forever to get our bill back. I almost got up to find her or find a manager because we needed to get back to relieve our babysitter. It was busy, but always is busy and was about 7:20pm on a Friday night. There were several groups of people waiting for what appeared to be their reserved tables. It just seemed bizarre that our waitress was going so slowly. We realized driving home that we never received our leftovers and honestly just didn’t care at that point to go back to get them. Overall, an amazing experience because of the food and drinks, but disappointing service especially for the price point.
