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!
Absolutely amazing food! Everything tasted wonderful. Very neat set up, enjoyed the quiet privacy of each room. Absolutely loved loved our waitresss she was fabulous
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!
Outstanding food, service, and Dining experience!!! We enjoyed every minute!
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.
One of our favorite places! Delicious food and great service!
The filet was excellent. Service was great. Ambiance is amazing.
Entire experience was awesome. We loved our waitress, Queen!!
Giardina's NEVER disappoints! Great staff & wonderful food.
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.
Had a wonderful experience! Food was delicious and service was excellent!
Delightful. Atmosphere, food, service could not have been better. Relaxing atmosphere, able to take our time and enjoy our food and drinks.
Jasmine was great!
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
Vegetarian entrees need upgrading to the level of creativity used for the steaks etc.
- food and service were excellent. We’ve always liked the atmosphere. We will be back.
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.
Great place to dine for privacy and great food. It was nice to actually be able to listen to one another in conversation.
Fabulous as always! The service is exceptional! Food is always delicious!
Awesome once again! Never disappoints!
Wasn’t the same as i remembered. Eggplant parmigiana had no flavor
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.
Best restaurant in Greenwood period.
