The server was amazing. The only reason for not receiving five stars was because of the attitude of the female working the hostess stand with the red cloth face covering. We will not be returning to the restaurant because of the experience with this specific hostess. Food quality was average to slightly above average. Location was average, hopefully they can paint/clean the white partition walls between each booth and PLEASE clean or even better replace the dirty floor.
Very nice atmosphere. Especially for this time of social distancing. Food good. Bar is excellent. Bartenders very knowledgeable and friendly, really a great place to enjoy an adult beverage!
Good romantic place to eat. Very historic and relaxed.
Amazing restaurant. Great food and environment. I will definitely come again.
Firstly covid19 precautions: most employees wore masks. We we were escorted to small room with table and chairs and a curtain across the entry. However the next night there was a wedding party in main dining room. 50+ customers were elbow to elbow. Lots of social. Not much distance nor any masks. Our appetizer was pretty good, but food went downhill from there. Fish was overcooked. Chocolate creme brulee was more like chocolate pudding than custard. There was hardly any "brulee". My bride had simlar reaction to her meal. Bar drinks were ok.
Food was not good. Oyster Rockefeller were watery and my red fish was broiled dry. Just not a good meal.
Great food and service, ask for Queen as your server, she is Great!
You can’t beat this place! Fabulous!
Loved the quiet, secluded dining rooms. Get very well taken care of. Great friendly staff and fast service. Think I had bad luck with fish not fully cooked but bread pudding dessert made up for it. They made the situation right with regards to the raw fish. So I’d go back
Gardina's has a great menu with excellent food. The private booths are very nice. You can hear your neighbors quite well, but it's not a bother. The staff were very cordial and pleasant.
A wonderful experience ! Food was delicious and our waitress was delightful!
Queen is the best!
We go frequently. My buttered scallops were gritty and the spinach was tough. Not their best tonight.
Great experience.My wife and I favorite restaurant great lighting food and environment
We had an excellent time at Giardina's. Drinks and appetizer prior to our reservation were delicious. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Steaks were also delicious. Private dining area made for a nice, romantic dinner. Will definitely return in the future! Highly recommend!
We had a fantastic time at Giardina's this weekend. We were greeted by a trio of smiling faces and escorted to our private booth. The ambience and unique setting is unmatched. The menu is distinctly Southern but offers elevated versions of traditional cuisine. The Brown-Butter Scallops were perfection - the best I think I've ever had. The traditional Iceberg Wedge was crisp and tasty. The oysters were flavorful. I was a little disappointed in the Fried Green Tomatos with Crab Meat (the warmed comeback sauce was overwhleming). Our server ("Fee") was fantastic - friendly and attentive. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better time!
It was a wonderful experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
From walking in the door and a pleasant hello by the hostess gave a smile on my face. I am an advocate for customer service and first impressions are lasting impressions for me. Once seated, Jasmine was our server and was beyond helpful during our dinner meeting. She always came back to the table at the right time or before. I was glad to have chosen Giardina's Restaurant based on a referral from my good friend, Tamala Boyd Shaw.
We are really enjoyed the meal. The aervice was very good and the food was prepared well.
We didn’t like the clinical booth: nothing on the walls and it felt like a hospital emergency room.
Waitress seemed indifferent and was off-hand. She didn’t listen to what we were saying. Food was good but the atmosphere was lacking.
Consistently high quality food with excellent service and atmosphere.
Very attentive service... started off with onion rings which were delicious. I had the chicken parmesan which was great, and she had the shrimp and grits which we always come back for. We will definitely be back!
The tamales and fried green tomatoes appetizers were really delicious. The main course was brought out in a timely manner and was very good. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Overall, the experience was really good and would highly recommend this restaurant.
Sorry, but the pan seared Halibut was way TOO salty. the Brussel sprouts were overcooked, and the service was a little slow.
Aqesome service, cool private dining, appetizers were great, we really enjoyed our entrees. The bread pudding was very good. We thought the value for the price qas excellent. We will be back.
My friends and I love to eat Giardina’s for special occasions. There were 5 in our party. We ordered: Filet mignon
(2) Broiled shrimp
The tuna was delicious! Everyone else’s food was terrible. The broiled shrimp is what I ordered. The sauce was entirely too thick and the shrimp were overcooked. I ate 4 shrimp and couldn’t finish my meal. It was just that bad. You need to know that I will eat just about anything I’ve ordered to keep from wasting food. The chicken parm was dry and looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a hour. The filet was cooked perfectly, but had absolutely no flavor. We ordered two desserts. One was the yellow cake and the other was the chocolate chip cake. Both were absolutely delicious. We devoured the desserts because we were still hungry after the main meal. ;( The house salad is also great! We ordered the spicy shrimp and crawfish dip for appetizers and both of those were great! The service was great. Everything was great, except the main course. Which is really why you go out to eat. We were disappointed.
food, service, and atmosphere were absolutely fantastic
We had dinner there on Thursday. Excellent food, amazing service, charming atmosphere.
The restaurant is within The Alluvian Hotel and used to be terrific, but our meal recently was disappointing. The fish was overcooked, as well as the asparagus. None of our food was up to what we expected from dining there in the past.
Giardina’s is our Christmas Eve tradition. The food is always excellent and this year, we decided to order several small plates including duck confit, baked oysters with bacon, fried shrimp, roasted Brussel sprouts, Caesar salad and more. The duck, oysters, and Brussels sprouts were the highlights. The service staff was attentive without hovering and anticipated our needs. Another outstanding experience!
Always delicious with great service. Our waitress was Queen, who is excellent and interesting to talk to. I always get a Giardina salad and often with an Italian dish. I especially enjoy dining in one of the private booths and appreciate the atmosphere. It’s enjoyable as a couple or two, or occasionally with a larger group. I usually top off my experience after my meal enjoying the art in the Alluvian Hotel lobby!
I would recommend Giardina’s based on the service, location and ambiance. Food was relatively good overall. Ordered medium rare salmon and my dinner was completely overcooked. For a restaurant with this pricing and “reputation” very disappointing.
The private booths were fun and gave the feeling of seclusion from other diners. Nice and romantic. Good food and service. Thanks.
The food and service were great, and easily the nicest option in Greenwood. The dining room was segmented into personal stalls, which seemed odd to us and just felt unnecessarily awkward. The bar was also very nice for a before and after drink, with great service and a nice ambiance.
The service was great. We had a wonderful evening but our food was not close to a 5 star meal.
Loved this place for our anniversary! Service was great, perfectly intimate atmosphere, and enjoyed every bite
Excellent Italian dish. Quiet atmosphere. Very nice waitress..accommodating!
