Food here is wonderful and very consistent. Love the staff -- so friendly and fun. It feels like family at Chianti, no matter how busy it is. I had the butternut squash ravioli with butter sage sauce, which was fantastic. And the calamari here is the best in the area. If you haven't been here, go. And go back. And save a seat for me. :)
Wonderful piano music. Terrific service and all around amazing experience. Highly recommend
Thank you for wonderful comment
Awesome at every turn. Great service Great Food. Better than the noisy downtown.
Our waiter, Adrian was amazing; and the Caprese salad was by far the best I have ever had. I would go back just to have it again!
Thank you for you nice words. Adrian is a one of a kind server.
Nice water views. Food and Service were excellent.
Thank you for kind comments. Look forward to seeing you again.
We went to Chianti last year & had a fabulous server & great food. We were so disappointed this year. The service was very slow, table was never cleared with dirty dishes & it took a long time to get our drinks. The ribeye my husband ordered was not nearly as thick & good as quality as last year. Unfortunately the service really was so Inadequate for a fine done restaurant that we will not go back.
Piano player in back ground.. open view to the lake, not impressed with our service, food was superb.
Everyone and everything is ALWAYS outstanding!
The staff makes you feel happy and as if you are the only ones in the room.
Food was delicious, service was exceptional.
Great dining experience.
We dined here while on vacation. The service was awesome and so was the meal!
To be honest, there are far better places to eat on Mackinaw Island. The beet and goat cheese salad was dressed too heavily in the lemon vinaigrette. The delicious taste of roasted beets with goat cheese became lost in the taste of vinegar. The whitefish with lemon risotto and sauteed kale needed seasoning and better balance. The kale provided some saltiness, but there was very little of it on the plate as all of it was hidden under the whitefish. The risotto needed more salt, but there was none on the table. The wine selection was very nice, but all in all, we expected a much better experience. The meal did not live up to the price.
Great place for dinner, everything tasted great! Chianti is clearly superior to the Grand Hotel restaurant. Chianti is a hidden gem!
Atmosphere is very nice and service was good. Food was very mediocre. I would not return.
Food is sub par
The service is good, the piano player added a nice touch.
But the food is just not "wow"
Unfortunate with such an attractive dining area
The food was okay. My wife’s eggplant Parmesan was lukewarm. Service was okay. Our waiter apologized for an error his assistant made in placing the silverware. There was tension between them.
On the basis of this experience, we would not plan to return.
Beautiful, steak served slightly rare opposed to medium as ordered. Overall a delicious meal with a beautiful view.
We were the only diners on the patio as it was cool but we were put there because of our dog with us. VERY slow service but the food was good.
Quite possibly the worst Italian food ever. My wife's grilled chicken breast had the thinest, dryest piece of chicken she'd ever had and my veal marsala tasted like it had come from a Swanson's frozen package. The fettuccini noodles where more like butter noodles, thin and tasteless. Would highly recommend you avoid this place if you enjoy good Italian food.
As always this was fabulous. On a carriage ride someone else even mentioned it is his favorite. I had fish as well as risotto and vegetables at every meal while on the island. Chianti had by far the best flavor and preparation. It was very nice to substitute Brussels sprouts for kale. My husband loves Italian and had the chicken parm and says it’s the best marinara sauce he has had! Thank you again for your attention to gourmet cuisine.
The food was very disappointing. Ordered the ribeye with two sides for the table. The “grilled” asparagus was boiled and limp. The mashed potatoes were thin watery and tasteless. The 50$ ribeye was over cooked, thin and worse than what you would get at an Outback Steakhouse . We went for our anniversary dinner and left feeling so disappointed.
We had dinner here while staying the week at Mission Point. It is a very interesting set up, being actually part of the east side of the lobby area. Music was great with a very good piano player. Nice outside deck overlooking the lake. Food was great and yes we had a bottle of Chianti. Service was fantastic!
Website is a touch mis-leading with the quality of presentation ambience in the restaurant. Food was good and ok service but website leads on to believe it is a high end restaurant.
Our dinner reservation was fantastic and it was for our 30th Anniversary. Our sever Clever was the best!
The pianist played funeral music - perhaps classical - but dreadful. There were three LARGE dogs on the patio - four in all - and the water views we paid for were in part blocked whenever the Great Dane or 130# Rottweiler stood up.
The waiter knew noting about the food
preparation - and apparently the chef knew less. How do you ruin Lake Superior Walleye?
The wine was disappointing and the evening - unlike any I have ever had in an advertised upscale-expensive RESORT?’
Service was sporadic and food was poor. In total not worth the high prices by a long shot.
Service was good but the food was low quality as compared to all other locations we ate at during our vacation. Pasta was way over cooked an chicken parmesan was tough. I have had much better meals for less than one third of the price. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Our son, who was turning 30 was sung to, and the waiter's voice was beautiful!
Food and service were excellent. Love piano playing was great, especially when one of the servers started singing along and nailed it! Will be dining here again next time at Mission Point.
Ambiance and service were wonderful. We were disappointed in our food for the price we paid. Kitchen needs some salt! Calamari and chicken dishes were a bit over cooked.
No because the food simply does not match up to the ambiance, excellent service and classy pianist. The expense should have included superior food but did not live up to our expectations.
Outstanding service, delicious food, varied menu, beautiful setting. I highly recommend eating at Chianti!
Upscale restaurant with beautiful views of the lake. Food was good but service was poor. Soup delivered to the table cold. Mentioned that soup was not that good to the waiter but was brushed off. After a long delay, entree arrived. No apology for delay. Waiter did not check back to see how our entree was until enough time had passed that we were done eating. No offer to refill bread basket. Cannot recommend this restaurant.
Great food and service. Sat looking out at the lake. Beautiful
The setting of Chianti is lovely and the service was very good. However the food was not hot but lukewarm.
The view of the Lake is amazing from this restaurant. All of the seating has the beautiful view. Our waiter was really fun and funny, and made the formal dinner very fun. I was surprised to see quite a few children with their parents here. I don’t recommend this restaurant for children. There is live piano player for background music. I had the filet, and it was one of the best I’ve had. The garlic mashed potatoes were great, and the veggies were fresh and tender. My parents shared the Whitefish, and it was lovely too. They chose some Chianti Classico, by the glass. I had sparkling water. At the end we chose coffee and one piece of terrimisu for the three of us. It was a good sweet ending. This was my 2nd time there, and I want to return next time I’m on the island. It also looks like a great hotel to stay at.
My husband and I absolutely loved our dining experience at Chianti! Our waiter, Basil, was outstanding. We ordered the white fish and chicken parmesan - would highly recommend and look forward to returning next year.
Chianti is a very special restaurant. Everyone is so wonderful and every time we dine there it feels like home. We were very happy to see Glenroy. He is very special.

Our server Adrian was the best and the food was excellent. They were very accommodating to us when we asked to be seated outside.
Wedding on nearby lawn made things noisier than what I assume is usual. Food was good not exceptional and they weren’t very flexible in adjusting the menu items. Expected more in fish selection.
Our meals were excellent. We ate outside, and the overall ambiance was outstanding
