I would highly recommend Giancarlo's, we had a bit of a mix up when we arrived, but our server was wonderful and made our experience delightful. She apologized and owned the error which we appreciated.

Food is nothing great. The shrimp they put on salads is not good quality. It has a strange texture and no taste.

Food was mostly very good. However, my chicken milinase was very dry and did not have the expected dressed saladon top.

Sevice was excellent.... noise level was very high.

I had been to this restaurant once before on a business lunch and enjoyed it, so I wanted to visit it for a quiet dinner with my wife. We loved it. The service, both the hostess and the waitress, were very friendly and efficient. The food was terrific. The restaurant also has a great ambiance, which feels upscale, but not dressy or stuffy. We really enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back.

I was a bit disappointed in my dinner at Giancarlos on Monday for a Birthday celebration. I had the Carlini salad with Panko Chicken which was extremely dry, I like the place but for the amount of money we spent I was a bit disappointed Thanks

The salmon with crab was outstanding! The atmosphere was upscale/trendy although we though the video screens with ads and pictures of food were odd. I has a Giancarlo's mule and it tasted like luden's cherry cough syrup and I couldn't drink it because it was too sweet but our server was outstanding and he offered to bring me something else. We will definitely be back!

We had a fabulous time. Emily had special menus made just for the birthday boy! He loved it.
All the dishes were very tasty. My tortellini was very tough and I couldn't not eat them. The beef/pork ragu sauce was very good though! The calamari was the best we've had anywhere!
They gave us a delicious piece of chocolate cake with ice cream for the birthday celebration. Overall a very special night. Service was outstanding. !!

Great for business lunch. High quality interior finish, comfortable surroundings, great professional service, high quality food. Acceptable sound levels, you can discuss business but still enjoy the restaurant atmosphere. As nice as any country club dining.

So a nice gem. I just wish we had a different table. Our table was by itself but right next the bathroom, kitchen and a side room. A lot of people moving around us at all times. Every other table seemed fine to be at. Food was amazing. Would defintely go back.

A little pricey but so worth it! We came here on NYE with a group of 6 and we were seated momentarily. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive! Every dish was delicious. They had props for NYE and a backdrop outdoors for pictures. The bar area was filled with NYE BALLOONS. Overall we had a wonderful experience. 5/5 for everything. Will be back again!

We were here for a New Years Eve dinner with friends, and had a wonderful time! The menu had many options, and being a vegetarian I absolutely LOVED the salad I had. Everyone else said their meals were incredible as well. We watched the Bills make their way into the playoffs while eating and drinking amazing food- a memory and night we will never forget!!! Thanks for a great night

Lobster Bisque: plenty of lobster but rather bland, no bite. American Wagyu was excellent. Japanese Wagyu was like eating pork belly. Mashed potatoes, I love mashed potatoes. Service was outstanding. Both the waiter and bus girl were spot on. Lemon pound cake was good. Cassata cake, apparently not my cup of tea. Tuna appetizer was also excellent.

Our dining experience was fabulous ... friendly, attentive staff, along with great food. The Bills were playing on New Year's Eve, and my son could watch the game, so that was a bonus! The only somewhat negative comment is that it's very "busy" with staff passing by, this way and that, all during the meal, which was a bit distracting. We were very impressed and will definitely be back.

I took out a group of eight people for an office holiday dinner a few days before Christmas.
The bar was packed and loud, but we had no trouble making our way to the bar and ordering drinks from a very friendly bartender. The atmosphere is upscale trendy, but not pretentious at all.
We were seated for dinner in the quieter dining room and the food, wine, and service were all excellent. Steaks and fish were perfectly cooked and delicious. The prices are steep, but no higher than any fine restaurant. We stayed a very long time (after the published closing time) and we never felt rushed by the staff which was so refreshing.
Awesome restaurant for any special occasion or just when you want to be assured that you will have a fine meal.
