This place was good. The portion sizes were a bit large, but that is why there are doggie bags. I had arancini as a starter. They were cooked to perfection. I did find the filling to be a bit too “refined” - I couldn’t tell what was in it by looking. It was just a pink paste - a very tasty pink paste. I do like to identify the individual bits. I am a bit odd.
My main course was duck. The duck was a bit underdone (even for duck) and a bit tough and stringy. The gnocchi were a bit tough and the asparagus was undercooked. Probably not a dish I would order again everyone else enjoyed their dishes, so I assume this was a one-off miss.
Desert was affogatto. Great ice cream. Oddly the espresso was served cold. This is the first time I had affogatto with cold espresso. It was ok, but in the future I would specify hot espresso.
Fantastic and Flavorful dinner!!! Our service was wonderful and we were honored to be welcomed by the owner, Giuseppe himself making sure we were pleased. Truly a PERFECT dining experience!
The food was excellent, the only negative was the food was plated cold plates which cooled food down to warm instead of hot.
Everything was great except the service. Can’t recall her name but she was not smiling nor check on my beverage nor the table or anything. Great chef!
Just wanting to eat outside by the water with a fabulous view. Service was fast, friendly and fun with the waiters. Two of us ordered the Chicken Parmesan , very tasty. One person had the Salmon meal...was great. Then we topped it off with the chocolate cake with ice-cream....Oh MY!! I am planning to go again ...even to cross the Canadian border is worth it. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon so we could be with our daughter and husband.
Best NY steak in the area by far! Excellent service and food quality!
An early before-theater dinner with friends landed us bargain-priced early dining specials which were tasty and well-served. As always, Giuseppe stopped by the table to welcome us and thanked us as we left. A very pleasant, personal dining experience.
Our dining experience was marred slightly by a raucous foursome beside us who escalated in volume as they drank. Ugly language towards the end but we were finished so didn’t ask to be reseated. I know it’s hard to control like with a crying child, but it did alter our total experience.
Great food in a lovely setting
Good wine list
Amazing food! Our server Laura was awesome and had so much knowledge to spread to us! Will be coming back!
It was an exceptionally busy night at Giuseppe's Al Porto prom night, in fact. Seating was only a short wait. The food was scrumptious and I would go again even with the noise and and the straight back ( don't stay long chairs). Wait staff courteous.
I was pleased that my wife could order gluten free and actually get home without stomach aches from gluten, grains, and lactose and still have a delicious dinner for her birthday.
Kudos to your chefs.
As usual, consistent and excellent. Food and service. Kitchen crew is great to watch in action.
The food and service were very good. Our visit was a pre-theater dinner, and the waitress was able to move our food along accordingly. The sauce on my pasta was tasty but a little bit soupy which caused some splashing despite my best efforts. Only one section of the dining room was open leaving only two tables with a waterfront view. I would suggest opening all the parts of the dining room to seat all of the window tables.
We celebrated our 54th wedding anniversary with two very good friends at the Bellingham, Wa. restaurant. Our waitress, Sarah was very experienced and knowledgeable of all on the menu. We enjoyed her recommendations for our wine selections and entrees. All four of us enjoyed our meal and had a very relaxing, fun evening. Can't wait to go back again! Thank you.
Excellent meal served by very personable staff. Perfect.
Our waitress, Sarah, was outstanding. Unfortunately,she was the best part of the evening. We ordered the Caesar and the lettuce had not been properly dried so the dressing was watery and had no flavor. We ordered the cannelloni and the lasagna. The person who ordered the lasagna thought it was light and enjoyed it. I felt the cannelloni was dry and flavorless. The cannelloni were similar to Italian enchiladas—not tender at all. We really enjoyed the house red wine. Again, our server made it a lovely dinner thanks to her numerous suggestions.
Giuseppe—Time to up the game now that you’re in the fancy digs!
PLEASE get rid of the tacky fake foliage. A simple fresh flower in a bud vase lends so much more to the table. Small touches are noticed if you are trying to create a more intimate experience in a larger corporate space. Pay a garden service and bring in real trees. Good luck with your restaurant.
Thank you for the evening.
Exceptional food exceptional service. Terrific Italian and seafood dishes. Made from scratch and incorporate many local ingredients. Ample portions appetizers and deserts were outstanding. Looking forward to visiting Gusieppi's again. They make special occasions special.
The food was delicious I had the pork chop with apricot and the bruschetta was fresh and flavorful! The ambiance and the service was top notch!
The event was a 65th Birthday and everything went well. The restaurant was helpful in holding a table setting for us so we could surprise the birthday girl. The owner came by and was gracious enough to pose with us. The food was excellent as usual. A fine evening was had by all.
Always a pleasure! Great food and Spencer (server) is always a delight!
Food was good, however the value of the dinner and atmosphere did not measure up to the final bill.
amazing caring staff and everyone was amazed with the food both taste and presentation. Large portions and did not have room for dessert.
Best Eggplant Parmesan ever! Very friendly host. Excellent waiter. Large portions. Will definitely return.
Great service and fantastic food and wine
The restaurant is huge and not romantic. My wife sent her rockfish back as it was really, really fishy and lukewarm. The manner in which they handled it made us feel like we were wrong. We weren't. The table next to us returned their fish as well.
Beautiful restaurant, nicely decorated, very accommodating. The service was fine but not exceptional. The food was a bit of a disappointment. The chicken was tough and tasted old, the vegetables were tasty but undercooked, but for all those criticisms the price was not unreasonable. I’d be happy to try it again and see if it was perhaps just an off night.
Nice evening! Good drinks and food. Huge menu to select from. Can’t beat their view! Our Servive was excellent.
Our server was excellent!
My husband being from Napoli, we wanted food that was fresh, made to order, and expertly cooked to Italian (as in Italy) standards. We ordered the rigatoni “VERY al dente” and within 7 minutes got pasta that disintegrated when picked up by a fork. That means pre-cooked—unforgivable, especially at this price. The accompanying potatoes and vegetables were also pre-cooked and served lukewarm. The tiramisù, however, took more than 10 minutes to arrive and was a spongy cake showing every sign of having been thawed from a freeze—also unforgivable. This is not Italian food worth the money. Giusè, fai capire ai ragazzi in cucina come devono fare per i clienti italiani.
The food was good but not great. Overpriced. Nothing special.
Our server, Michael made our whole experience. Aside from fresh,authentic and all over amazing food and beverages. Michael made our evening with his perfection in timing attention to detail and overall knowledge of the food and drinks he was crafting and serving. We will definitely be back and request to have Michael as our server! Ciao
Very good as usual. I had chicken piccata and my husband had the duck breast. While my portion was rather small for the price, it was plenty filling. I tasted the duck and I wasn't too fond of the orange marmalade but my husband thought it was great. This is not our first time dining at Giuseppe's and it won't be the last.
took my niece for her birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. Frinedly service and good food. Will plan on visiting again
I took my husband out for date night, and it has been a long time since we've gone out. The staff was amazing. We had a nice table, our drinks were delicious and dinner was AMAZING!! Our waiter was attentive but not overly, which made for a nice romantic meal. We will be going back for sure. I highly recommend the Clam Linguine and the Bellatini.
We had a Wonderful Experience.....would definitely recommend this to friends and family to enjoy the experience, with excellent service and food.
Food was good.
Reserved a table for 8 with separate checks through OpenTable and verified ahead of time there would be no problems. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were seated promptly, although had to wait about 10 minutes for menus which seemed odd (although wine list was on the table when we were seated?). Overall service was good, but somewhat disjointed from my perspective, as server wanted to take drink orders before we were even given food menus. I ordered from their Early Dinner menu which included salad, main and desert. Food was served in a timely manner, although my entree was not hot but rather "room temperature". My salmon was a bit under-cooked and too pink for my tastes and the fingerling potatoes was over-cooked and dry. Both the salad and chocolate mousse were excellent. The owner stopped by the table during our meal to inquire about how our meals were, which was nice. I did not voice my criticisms/complaints to him at that time, but did leave a note on the response form we received with our bill. This was our second visit to the restaurant and don't recall any complaints from the first meal, so will certainly give them another chance in hopes this experience was not quite up to their usual performance standards.
I took my daughter here for dinner on her 18th birthday. We had a group of 7, so I called ahead to make reservations. I spoke to the owner and he was very nice. We arrived and were seated right away. The owner asked if we wanted to get started with any appetizers, and he recommended two. I asked what the first one was, and he described it to me. I said, "OK, we'll take an order of those." A little while later, our waiter brought out two orders of those (plus a couple extras, which I found out later we were charged for,) and one order of the other appetizer, which I had not ordered. I did not want to insult the owner, so I didn't say anything. When I reviewed the bill at the end of our meal, I noticed a miscellaneous charge. I asked the waiter about it, and he explained that we were charged for the extra appetizers I did not order. He said the owner told him to bring extras. Again, not wanting to insult the owner, I didn't say anything. The bill for four of us was $230 (tip included,) which is a lot for us. All of our food was excellent, and the service was good, so I would definitely return based on that, but if something like this happened again, I'll say something.
Great experience and extremely considerate staff. We had a special dish that had an allergen in it, and unfortunately had to send the food back to the kitchen. The staff was awesome and quickly (as in less than in 5 minutes) re-made the dish. The staff was also extremely attentive and seated us further from the center of the restaurant so we could enjoy our date.
