Giardina's, one of the Mississippi Delta's most historic restaurants, was founded in 1936 by Joseph Giardina, in Greenwood, Mississippi. A unique blend of sophistication and warmth, Giardina's is the perfect setting for any event. Seating consists of fourteen private booths and the large dining room opens onto a beautiful courtyard. The restaurant's interior space and state-of-the-art kitchen were designed by world-renowned architects. Considerable effort was made to retain the character and charm of the original Giardina's, but the white tablecloths, fine crystal and premium Viking cutlery add the feeling of elegance one would expect from a fine dining restaurant in a large metropolitan area. Giardina's bar, reminiscent of a bygone era, features the same dark wood and tile of the restaurant while offering today's premium liquors, wines and liqueurs. Featuring steaks, seafood and Italian cuisine, Giardina's atmosphere is old world elegant but dress is laid-back "Delta casual.”

The service was great. We had a wonderful evening but our food was not close to a 5 star meal.

Food was okay - not great, portions were small, service was slow. Ambience (private table) was unique, but could be improved by better decor, better lighting, and music. If you can hear the conversations at all the tables around you, what’s the point?

First time at Giardina’s and my family had a wonderful experience. Just as we had heard, the food & service was very good. I enjoyed the private rooms at Giardina's but I thought the rooms could use some updating and possibly some art on the walls. Otherwise, it is an exceptional restaurant!

Wonderful dinner. Great cocktails. Lovely wine.
We had a romantic dinner for two. Began with a Cosmopolitan and shot of Jefferson Reserve. Wine was a Russian Rivers Chardonnay. Chicken with wild mushroom filled ravioli and fried asparagus. Brown sweet scallops. All delicious.
Desert was a homestyle sour cream cream cake with roasted pecans, called Delta Delite. You have to get it.
A big shout out to our excellent waitress , Kierra. And the greeter with the great glasses.

Everything was perfect. Our waiter was exceptional. We had the fried green tomatoes and onion rings for appetizer and bread pudding for dessert which was divine. One of my favorite places to eat.

Excellent meal in famous Greenwood institution. Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab and Comeback Sauce was perfect. I had a poor imitation of this elsewhere; they need to “come back” here and be schooled! Delicious fresh oysters — three presentations and each was as good or better than I’ve had anywhere else. Steak, salad, baked potato all appropriately delicious.

Each dining group has a curtained booth, which was a surprise to me, but surprisingly nice.

Great service and excellent food. Only disappointment was they no longer had lamb chops and they could not make a pina colada for my wife. Those two small things did not ruin the evening and we will definitely be back. Best restaurant in the state

I had the Chicken picatta and it was the best ! The outside was crispy and the inside so tender. It was just the right blend of Lemon . Good selection of wine with reasonable prices. We had the Staggs Leap Petite Syrah 2015. Wonderful!!!

Our dinner at Giardina's was not simply a meal...it was an experience! The building is absolutely gorgeous, and the secluded dining tables create the feeling that you are dining in your own private restaurant. The food is SUPERB!!! I was a chef for years, and you won't find better than the fare at this establishment. Our server, Queen, provided EXCEPTIONAL service and made the experience one that rivals all others! I cannot wait to attend again!!!

Delicious seafood in this lovely hotel in Greenwood, MS. I had the salmon special which was delicious (although a little too salty) and my husband had the catfish Giardina which he loved. We were too full for dessert.

Service was excellent but some of the food was not good. Oyster Trio was cold, hardly any crab meat on fried green tomatoes and remoulade was too tart and tasted like ketchup. The rest of the food was good and enjoyable.

Overall a big disappointment. Elegant hotel and classy bar area. Had higher expectations of food quality. The duck confit appetizer swimming in broth and was nothing like classic duck confit. The Giardina’s salad was drenched in an overly vinegar dressing (about half an inch of dressing in bottom of bowl). Crab cakes were good. Cod fish bland and over cooked. Service was lacking. Server not knowledgeable about the food, menu, or wine. Ordered a bottle of wine- server did not offer a tasting (just poured 2 glasses) and we had to refill our own glasses throughout the meal. We shared appetizer and salad...had to ask for extra plates. Also had to ask for clean flatware for dinner.
We will definitely return to the hotel and bar, but will seek other dining options in the area.

My waiter got my salad order wrong and my dessert order wrong. They were corrected. I always enjoy fried green tomatoes but these had way too much sauce on them. Totally overpowered the dish.

Blackened redfish special and the oyster trio were excellent. There need to be more dessert options. I'm not really a Fan of bread pudding. I did try theirs and it was just ok.

I ate specialty dish called catfish Giardina’s and thought it was outstanding. The biggest surprise was the setting as our table was in a private room for just the two of us with drawn curtains. Our server Charles did an excellent job.

Our first time to visit. Tiara, our waitress was very good, as well as Geraldine and others. I liked the feel that the employees were there for the customer. We were surprised that the prices were not higher. The only comment was that our “neighbors” were rude and loud, not a restaurant issue.

Incredibly well decorated ambience allowing for private and relaxed dining. The food was as hoped and I must say the shrimp and grits were exceptional. The scallops were less than tasty and I would not order them again however the ribeye and the roasted chicken with angel hair pasta and walnut pesto sauce was also quite delicious. Would definitely recommend another visit.Service was very good although they could have used a bit more help
