Italian
Nestled away on winding Gold Street in Manhattan's venerable Financial District, Giardino D'Oro is indeed a golden garden as its name translates. All that is charming about Italy comes to life as co-owners Benny Jakupaj and Nick Vuli welcome even newcomers with open arms. At Giardino D'Oro, food is indeed art with the fine Italian cuisine replete with antipasti, fresh rolled pastas, exquisite meat and seafood dishes, mouth-watering desserts, and an extensive wine list. Attentive yet discreet service in an intimate setting with strains of Sinatra softly crooning in the background set the scene for power lunches as well as romance.

    Coworkers luncheon. It was very good. Our waiter was excellent. So many specials that were offered and all sounding better than last. I settled on the risotto with shrimp and saffron and it was so good!!

    It was terrific. I was hesitant to book it because of some of the negative reviews and yes, it is pricey, but it's new york. I had the dover sole which was amazing. As was the creme brulee.

    The service and atmosphere were great. As an Italian-American, I found the the food embarrassingly bad. I’ve never been served such a horrible piece of veal. The thickness was like a potato chip. My wife simply refused to eat it and sent it back. Oysters Rockefeller was terrible as well. Under no circumstances would I eat here again.

    It may have been an off night, but I was the only one in attendance. Great service and the food was very good. I may have had dinner early for NYC and that may explain why I was the only one in the restaurant. Will return again if I am staying in lower Manhattan.

    Phenomenal! Not only was the food amazing but the service was impeccable. The staff put us in a private room and spent all night tending to our every need. We never wanted for anything. They went above and beyond and treated us like royalty! It was an experience I never could’ve imagined. We went to the restaurant for a Valentines Day double date so they had a special Valentines menu. Everything we ate was delicious and the setting was so quiet and intimate with soft music in the background. Great ambiance! I strongly recommend you eat at Giardino D’Oro in your lifetime.

    Bread service was the highlight- a huge, roasted hot pepper, excellent olives, salami, and aged cheese with great Tuscan bread. After that, perfectly adequate/good wine by the glass and saltimbocca romana, but, wow, the prices! (And I never complain about price.) Service at the bar was delightful.

    If you're looking for a restaurant with a modern, chic ambiance this may not be your best choice. Appetizers were decent (clams, calamari) and vegetarian pasta dish entree was the best at our table. Service, however, was great and we appreciate the care. May not return, but appreciate the experience.
