Unfortunately, we were at Mangiamo's on Thursday night, two days before their closing. The staff was disheartened. The food was so-so. I thought it was dishonest not to inform customers of the planned closing on Saturday. Our meal was an anniversary celebrartion and was a let-down to put it mildly.

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined on August 11, 2017

Our second restaurant for Restaurant Week GR, we were surprised by the beautiful setting and home right in town. Oh the history!! Beautiful. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and our food was brought in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, our octopus was extremely overdone and chewy, the flavor was awesome but several times we were tempted to dispense our bite into a napkin simply because we weren't getting anywhere with chewing. My steak was medium well when I ordered medium rare. The creme brulee went unfinished as they tasted so burnt and that was the taste that stuck with us for hours after. We also noticed consistency is not their thing. The table next to us ordered almost the exact menu items as they were there for restaurant week as well, and my steak came as a filet mignon type cut (equally as tall as wide) and theirs came thin and long. He had ordered rare and got medium. My husband ordered the seafood dish and enjoyed it but it was nothing remarkable and we noticed that other tables who had ordered the same dish got large spoons in their dish, where my husband did not. The creme brulee dish was served to us on a little plate with a spoon and the table next to us received the creme brulee dish only and a fork, no plate. The paper on the table is annoying. Our waitress was charming and did a great job. I drink only water at every restaurant I go to and for some reason, this water was nasty. I asked if they had bottled water (never asked for bottled water before) and she was very sweet and accommodating. Thank you for that. The manager made an appearance but not at our table or any of the tables in our row EXCEPT for a table with several young ladies whom he frequently returned to, and even made their waiter work around him while he hung out. Very unprofessional. We are glad we tried it but we will not return, there are so many wonderful options in the city and nearby areas.

I love the atmosphere of this lovely old stately home. We met with some traveling friends for a business meeting and it was perfect for conversation. I ordered the steak which was too well done. The others ordered the baseball size meatball and spaghetti, which is a favorite and always good. For desert we loved the chocolate truffle and tiramisu both excellent. I haven't been during the day but the home is so beautiful by evening lamplight. Mangiamo!

Wonderful meal in an intriguing home. Our waiter, Joe, did a fine job; attentive without 'hovering'. He endorsed the Brussel sprouts and he was right, they were exceptional. Special acknowledgment goes to Jose, the truffle maker. Absolutely made my husband's night!

The restaurant location is lovely but our meals were just mediocre. Three out of four of us had chicken as part of our meals and all of our chicken was over-cooked and chewy. My husband's veal dish was very chewy as well. The brussel sprouts appetizer was delicious. Dessert was unremarkable. So all in all, just "meh". We won't be returning...too many other GR restaurants to try!

Nothing like our first visit years ago. High marks on flavor. One meal was small in portion. One (the Chefs Choice) was a little dry. One of us got sick on the way home. He was the only one who had the Mussels. Disappointed!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on July 7, 2017

We went there to celebrate our mom's birthday. Our waiter was terrible. We waited over 20 minutes for our drinks and 90 minutes for our food. My son's "rare" steak was so overdone it was like a hockey puck; he sent it back. There were 11 of us and not one of us enjoyed our meal. Most of us just didn't eat them. I have NEVER written a negative review before but this place earned it. We were hoping for so much more given the occasion.

We made a reservation and were taken to our table right away. The server gave us ample time to look over the menu. Once we ordered we had our food in around 15-20 minutes! Everything was delicious! From the time we arrived to the time we left it was about an hour. Great food, great service, and our guests were impressed.

The restaurant is a beautiful place, with lots of character. From the architecture with vaulted ceilings, To the stained glass art piece by the bar. The place is very well put together for fine dining or a beer at the bar.

Food had a nice variety of options. We had sampled the Pasta. So received the fresh bread.

location was amazing with large parking lot and Prime location, right in the center of where you wanted to be.

It was pouring rain when we came in, they were offering free valet parking to accommodate. Restaurant was a bit empty, as other diners left we were the only ones seated in our section which made it more difficult to get our waitresses attention. Otherwise it was lovely. Food was great!

Service was great, and very helpful with getting the pups some water and even a little ice cream snack! It was my sisters first time, and she loved it! Food was perfect as always!

This was our third visit to Mangiamo! and it never disappoints. The menu is varied so one is not locked in with Italian cuisine, though that is what we always opt for. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is elegant but not pretentious, well worth the drive if you're outside of GR and a great place for special occasions. It's a bit pricey but the portions are generous and the food is very good--lasagna is the best I've ever had! Also, for an early dinner, say 5:30-6, I believe wine is half price. All in all, this is an excellent choice for a special night out

Pretty large portions too I was full before dinner arrived. Still ordered delicious dessert though. Great drinks and overall can't wait to go back.

This was my first time to Mangiamo's. Our waitress was superb. Attentive and accommodating, but not hovering. The Appetizers were wonderful. Everyone loved their meal. Only drawback for me was noise. We arrived at 7:30 and it was difficult to have a conversation. But by 8:30 it cleared out a bit and was so much nicer. A great restaurant for special occasions.

My visiting in-laws were impressed with every facet of our meal. The ambience of a 19th century mansion (updated with style-preserving wheelchair access), an extraordinary antipasto board (what sort of witchcraft made those onions so amazing?), recognizably classic entrees which nevertheless distinguished themselves with smart preparation and plating, and Madison's extra-mile service (yes, she tracked us down in the parking lot to reunite us with forgotten toddler toys) -- the entire evening spoke well of Mangiamo! I'm still not quite sure how The Gilmore Collection manages to corral such distinct flavors and venues under the same corporate umbrella.
