A wonderful Thanksgiving buffet! Impeccable service! So many choices on the buffet; great wine list! We have had lunches and dinners here on other occasions, and , have always been pleased!

We went for Happy Hour and early dinner on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Turned out to be a very slow time so we received excellent service and attention. Had the ribs and crab dip then added ravioli from the Early Dinner menu. All very good. Now we need to return for the dinner menu.

We had been there in the summer and had excellent food and superb service. We brought 2 other couples with us from out of town. We ordered off the early bird special menu because the choices looked good. All of our meals were mediocre. The owner asked us about our experience and I was honest with him. He gave us complimentary port and a special dessert, which was very nice of him. But the food was still so disappointing.

Bellingham is a dead zone when it comes to fine dining unless you think chain restaurants are fine dining.

Food was excellent and the service was very pleasant.

Can be a little tricky to find unless you have GPS.

Well worth a trip

Overall, we were disappointed with our dining experience at Guissepe's . On the plus side, the open table reservation app worked beautifully. The front hostess was very cordial and accommodating . We were initially seated at one table but then they moved us to another, better table at the windows. However, the lighting was so dim in this location it was hard to see the menus. Admittedly we are old and squinty, but the lighting was lacking for reading a menu. Our waiter was nice, but he was a fast talker. He rattled off the three specials of the night and everyone in our party was only able to decipher what he said on the third special. We called him back and asked for a clarification on the specials, but it didnt help much. Our food was okay. Nice enough portions, but for the price we paid we were expecting something fabulous. We didnt get fabulous. It was an okay meal, but we all agreed we wouldn't need to return again.

Went for my mother's birthday. Service was fantastic (despite being pretty crowded), food was absolutely incredible - had the halibut special and the lamb which were both probably the best tasting food we've had in five years in Bellingham. House wine (cab sauv blend) was delicious. Only bad part was table next to us had noisy children (why do people bring their noisy toddlers to nice dinners and make everyone around them miserable??) but fortunately they left halfway though our dinner. Highly recommend Guiseppe's! We also love going for happy hour - I am in love with the tortellini with gorgonzola tomato sauce, mushrooms and spinach!

Lovely restaurant, great service, the soup of the day was spicy but delicious, the pasta entrees were wonderful. We ate dinner early, so it was quiet - just what we were looking for on a rainy Monday evening.f

We really enjoyed Giuseppe's with our college age granddaughter & her friends... wonderful ambience, true Italian feel & the owner himself stops by every table to say hello - very nice, indeed! The food is good but it's the whole atmosphere & service that make Giuseppe's a stand out place.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and overall experience. This is not a cheap meal, however. Broadly though, I felt it was worth the price. We'll be back in the future, for another spevial occasion.

Very enjoyable evening. Guiseppe has got the formula down pat. Efficient service, good food, good timing with the arrival of dishes... I know Guiseppe has a business to run and he needs to be efficient and keep things running smoothly, but it would be nice if he would slow down a touch and be less rushed when seating his guests. Needs to be calmer and a little more gentle.

The dinner was delicious (although slightly over-priced). Our family was there for a birthday, which we mentioned when making the reservation. I had hoped for at least a complimentary dessert for my son, but it wasn't offered. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely go again for a special occasion. After dinner, we took a walk along the marina looking at boats. The service was excellent and the restaurant was beautiful.

Great dinner at Giuseppe's Al Porto! This place delivers on all levels, food, service, atmosphere, and views! The food was great and much bigger portion sizes than your typical Italian restaurant, so plan on taking home some leftovers.

Excellent food & wine at a very premium price. The warm bruschetta appetizer was utterly delicious as was the lobster bisque. The cioppino was fresh and tasty, and it was a pleasant surprise to find this light, healthy dish on a meat-and-pasta-heavy menu. Very pleasant staff and welcoming atmosphere, although it's definitely not hip or trendy. The style & decor may only appeal to older people, with twinkly fairy lights and tacky silk flowers everywhere. Still, what it lacks in chic, it makes up for with truly fine food.
