Steakhouse
Our Sicilian Steakhouse is an original concept that celebrates the Sicilian-immigrant culinary experience. Referred to as the "original fusion cuisine," Sicilian food is a historical mosaic influenced by the various conquering nations. Traces of Greece, North Africa, Rome, the Middle East, Germanic nations, France, Spain, and Italy are evident in traditional Sicilian cuisine. At Giancarlo's, our love of history-rich Sicilian cuisine is combined with our interpretation of both the great American Steakhouse and the Neapolitan Pizzeria.

    Attended a West Coast Wine Pairing Five Course Dinner. It was simply amazing. The waitstaff is impeccable, knowing just when to show up. The food was delicious and paired so well with the accompanying wine. Oh my, I am still thinking about that Wagyu Steak, oh, and the Lobster and Burrata Salad. everything was just so well presented and perfectly seasoned for enjoyment. We will be definitely coming back!

    I brought my best friend here for her birthday last night and we both loved it. It was her 1st time there and my 4th time LOL. So you can say I really do love this restaurant. Noir (I’m sorry if I spelled it wrong) was great, excellent service. Will continue to dine at this great restaurant.

    On a Saturday night it is rather noisy even in the dining room. The filet was great. Willing to pay the cost. But the sides (fries and asparagus) were nothing special and overpriced. Was told that the sides were "family style" but it was basically for 2. Nice place to go for special occasions but expensive.

    This was a perfectly acceptable meal... Unfortunately you pay for what should be a truly exceptional meal. There was absolutely nothing wrong with my food - but I found it to be uninspired and kind of plain for what was anticipated.

    Loved that they had a special winter menu with great choices, although we ended up ordering off the regular menu and everything we got was amazing. We ordered Mamas meatball, the short rib pizza and the lemon artichoke risotto, all of which were fabulous. The service was excellent and our waiter was friendly and helpful. Loved the ambiance and overall it was a great place. My only negative comment is that it is pricey.

    Had a fantastic dinner! We both ordered the 8 oz filet cooked perfectly to order. It was very crowded and kind of loud in the bar area but we were seated in a area away from that and all was good. Our server was excellent as well, allowed us to relax and enjoy our wine for a bit before placing our order. Highly recomend!

    We decided at the last moment to go out to dinner this past Friday night… it turned out wonderfully! Because we did not make a reservation until mid afternoon, we had an early dinner at 4:30! we were wondering how that would turn out , but we were pleasantly surprised! The bar crowd was not fully assembled yet so it was quieter and more intimate, there was plenty of parking available, and our dinner was perfectly timed and served very promptly… it was nice not to have to wait! Lots of pluses to dining early. Our server was especially kind, attentive, and informative. Thank you, “China”. We will request you next time! Each table also had a small card with the server’s short biography on it. We liked that special touch and have never seen that before. Giancarlo’s is always a welcoming spot that gives you a warm hug while serving you consistently excellent food. It is one of our go to/favorite Dining adventure locations that never disappoints.

    We just love this restaurant! One of the managers recognized us last night and bought a dessert for us because we had had not such a great experience a couple of times ago… that’s how much they are on top of things! They see so many people every night and Paul remembered us and it was not because we were such big complainers that he just wanted to make us go away; but because we just had such a positive interaction with him and he tried to make our meal right. We all know things happen and sometimes the chef and staff are having an off night but, again, Paul made it right without hesitation! Last night was probably one of the best experiences we have had at Giancarlo’s. We got seated late but it was Valentines Day so we expected the wait. Once seated our server Hunter was so professional but also friendly and he did everything right! Drinks and food were exceptional and one of the best meals we have had there!

    Our server was Tori, she did a fabulous job. She was very attentive and explained the menu very well. We never had to wait for anything, she was on it. My filet was done perfectly, my truffle fries were not really hot, but they had good flavor. My wife had fish which we both thought was good.

    Overall service was on par. Our drinks were perfect, but quite expensive at $15.00 each. Our appetizers and meals were well presented, prepared very nicely, but only warm when they were served. The atmosphere was louder than I like, for this level of fine dining.

    We went early, 5pm, but it was absolute perfection! Our server, Chyna, was lovely. She was attentive and struck that balance of being available without being too much. She ensured that our food came out at the right pace and was so professional. My husband and I were celebrating our last Valentine’s Day before welcoming our first child and she surprised us by giving us a free dessert of our choice as a surprise. Honestly, the food was cooked to perfection and I could not think of one thing that we would change.

    My husband and I recently dined at Giancarlo's on a chilly Saturday night. Immediately upon entering the restaurant, I felt the warmth of a beautiful, well-appointed restaurant and the friendly greeting of the host. This was the first time we had been there since their renovations. I love that there are different rooms, all giving a slightly different feel, yet were cohesive. I had the filet mignon with a side of roasted vegetables. The steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly; the vegetables were fresh and boasted a delicious sauce. Looking forward to returning and will definitely save room for dessert!!
