Disappointed (Minneapolis)
Dined 3 days ago


I had sought a recommendation from someone more familiar with the Wayzata area for a quiet but very good restaurant for a business dinner for four. He recommended Gianni's.

We were seated promptly when we arrived and our server brought menus. He seemed very interested until he learned we weren't having any alcoholic beverages.

A variety of entrees and accompaniments were ordered and served. I had a filet Mignon which was very good and cooked to order. However the consensus regarding the meal, (with the exception of my steak) especially the side orders is that the food lacked flavor. A side of broccoli was absolutely tasteless. The baked potatoes were overcooked.

A busboy kept the water glasses full but visits from the waiter were rare.

Overall, very uninspiring.

We don't visit Gianni's very often as we don't live in the Twin Cities but it's always a pleasant experience when we do. We never have better steaks then those we have at Gianni's! The staff is always friendly, professional and efficient. The menu is not expansive but I can't imagine any diners not being able to find great food to their liking. It's traditional dining at it's best....excellent food, prepared by talented chefs, served by a friendly staff in an upscale setting. What's not to enjoy?

Once again, we had outstanding steaks at Giannis. They are the best. One in our party had Sea Bass which was excellent also. Seated near the bar it was a little noisy but overall great. Next time we will sit in a booth. All food is great

Never been there before. Took friends as a thank you. Our waiter was great, he even had a bowtie! He knew his wine. Food was excellent. Had the pork chop. The table shared the $20 potato papa.......? Not cheap but a great special occasion destination.

The steaks were delicious and the sides were good too. Very comfortable place with great service. Larry, our server, was excellent and informed us of the specials and saw to our needs. It was our first time at this restaurant and will definitely come back.

Gianni's is a long-time family favorite for us! First the server - Larry. He is fun, efficient, and knows how to make the meal special. He offers great wine recommendations too. Next, the red meat - amazing and cooked perfectly. The "spun salad" is unique and delicious. Cocktails are excellent and served promptly, despite a busy bar.

Only downside (in winter) is that there is nowhere to wait if your table is not ready because the bar is full. This leaves guests hanging out near the door by the tables along the front--providing a disturbance to those diners. Management needs to allow at least 15 min longer between table times because of this.

We had a late dinner for 4 and had a great time. Excellent service and ambiance. Food was cooked to perfection. This is one of our favorite spots and has been for years. A little hidden gem in the western suburbs and worth the drive.

The service was outstanding the steak my wife had was great. I had the scallops and they were fine but the pasta with it was average.
