Awesome meal and service! By far the best steaks and specials in the Buffalo area.
We had a great time, our chicken parm was a bit over done, and we had reserved a spot in the main dining room but were seated in the bar area. Didn't affect our entire experience, but everything else was wonderful!
Our reservation was for 7:45, we sat at 8:05. Not horrible. Service was great, the staff is very attentive, and the food was very good. I do question the prices, and serving everything ala carte is not my thing. My thought is, if I’m buying a $40 steak, the risotto side shouldn’t cost me an additional $9. I guess to each their own, but it’ll be a long time before we do ‘date night’ there again
Outstanding menu! The Ahi Tuna appetiser is a wonderful starter for two. Good size portion with an interesting sweet teriyaki sauce with a side of wasabi. MIxed together the sauce becomes that quintessential sweet and spicy treat. Only complaint is the seating and noise level. I felt as if we were on display in the dinning room rather than on a cozy date. It was extremely load as well.
Service was slow also they changed their menu and online it said different so when I asked the waitress to see if the cook could make it for me and it was like I asked her to pull out her tooth she just wasn’t overly friendly did her job likebit was just a job
the cooked did make it but it was over cooked I feel like maybe it was done on purpose!! Their off my list no need to go back !!
The food and service were excellent as always. Definitely recommend
a fun night with good food. ordered the chicken wings and a pizza for appetizers. maybe the best wings ever. the pizza was also good. had salad that was beautifully presented. drinks were a good pour. chicken parm was a disappointment. great waiter. the menu better serves meat eaters and adventurous eaters. would return
Made a spur of the moment reservation when I learned that Nicholas Cee was the current head chef. I am not a foodie by nature. I am a picky eater by nature. But I have had the pleasure of his food many times over the years--enough to know that I don't bother questioning what's in it (normally unthinkable for me), I jut eat it and know it will be wonderful. His touch is clear on this menu with some slightly unconventional pairings that would normally make me uncomfortable and, sure enough, the meal was fantastic. We had a small plate of the Sizzling Steak as an appetizer, which made my husband sorry that he didn't order a steak for dinner. I had the blackened salmon and my husband had the Mama's Meatball. While I could rave enough about my meal, my husband's wasn't on the same level. However, this might be because we are regulars at Mulberry Ristorante, which cannot be surpassed for that dish. Our cocktails were delicious and our server was friendly and attentive. We finished our meal off with coffees. While my latte was both generous and delicious, I do not feel that it merited the $7 price tag. It's certainly not an everyday kind of dining experience, but isn't that the whole point sometimes?
Outstanding as always! It's always a great experience when we go to Giancarlo's!
Good except too noisy
Overall could not be happier with my experience, the food was tremendous and the service was even better
They did not seem well organized in terms of my reservation but it worked out ok.
The food and service were excellent!!
This is what we go to Giancarlo’s for.
The bartender could use a little more tasting/training to get their Cosmos more palatable.
Dining experience was Excellent! However the only issue is that even with a reservation and arriving early we waited 25 minutes past our reservation time. I watched others come in and get seated right away even after my scheduled reservation time. I am sure people were seated ahead of us that were not supposed to be.
Expensive but the food and the service were very good.
Absolutely the best meal I’ve had in a while everything was so delicious the service was wonderful the food was exceptional.
We had the fillet , sizzling steak , steak pizza and a fillet wrapped in prosciutto.
Also the Casdada cake is the best!
Went there to celebrate an anniversary. Excellent food - I only give high marks like this to places that can cook better then myself. Dinner started with a bread service that had butter and a delicious red pepper sauce. That was followed by bacon-wrapped scallops - bacon was crisp, and scallops melted in your mouth. My wife had the lobster Mac and cheese. I had the 22oz ribeye with risotto and Brussel sprouts. Risotto was fabulous and my steak was delicious. We split a tiramisu for dessert. Very memorable meal. Service was shared between 2 and was excellent. Look forward to going back again.
Good food and very attentive staff. I recommend.
Exceptional. My daughter needed a gluten free meal. We thought Giancarlos had a gluten-free pizza. We were told wrong. Michael came over and together they created a gluten free pasta with the mushrooms she had wanted...it was wonderful. Thank you.
I had a dinner with some co-workers. It was my 3rd time eating there. We ordered some cocktails to start. I got some sort of version of a a fancier malibu rum with pineapple and it was delicious. The Giancarlo’s mule was also very good, like a fruit punch... dangerous! Food was very good. We all ordered a bowl of the sicilian onion soup. It was very good, but a bowl was too much, a cup would have been sufficient. The filet was delicious. I ordered mine cooked medium and it was so tender and perfectly cooked. We ordered the brussel sprouts, au gratin potatoes and mushroom risotto as sides. I was not a big fan of the risotto, but the others like it. We all got desserts, but I ordered mine to go, the carrot cake. It was pretty good, even though I ate it the next day. I would definitely eat there again, and get the filet. One if the best filets I have had in Buffalo.
Giancarlo's was an excellent choice for a Valentine's dinner with my wife. The food and atmosphere was excellent. We couldn't think of a single thing to complain about, and we are extremely picky diners.
They took about 30 mins to seat us regardless of our already made reservation. The table was still unclean when we finally arrived to it. The menu had drips of sauce of it and the utensils were still dirty. We order appetizers which took awfully long (25 minutes) and we ordered entrees, that took about 45 minutes to come. The waiter was no where to be found most of the time. I had to ask the bust boys for assistance most of the time. This was the worst service I have ever had, the restaurant is too great looking to have a poor service such as this! They realized their mistakes and told me everything was on the house. That’s the only time they had shown professionalism. The damage had already been done. I don’t recommend this place at all.
Always have great service and food here .. was very busy because it was Valentine's Day but that was expected
Our food was delicious especially the woodfire steak pizza!!
Food was delicious. Overpriced for the amount of food we received. Waitress wasn't very attentive and forgot one of our dishes and never brought it. Then we got the check and was charged for it. She did take it off with our cheapest appetizer as well but not sure if we will return again.
We had an amazing dinner as always and would love to come back. Ther servers are excellent and so is the food. No complaints at all!
Excellent evening from the walk to the table to the personalized menu for a 25th Birthday to all the food and great service!
Giancarlo’s is a perfect pick for any or no special occasion.
I will frequent this place!
Desserts all made at restaurant and decadent!
Food was really good. Service was excellent Emily is a great server.
We did not feel that the quality of the food was on par with the price of the food. I got Chicken Parmesan and although it was a large piece of chicken it was pretty thick and somewhat dry because it was so thick. A very, very SMALL portion of spaghetti. I do not like anything SWIMMING in sauce but I actually had to ask for MORE sauce on the side because the spaghetti was almost like eating just NAKED NOODLES! Also, a very unusual sauce, it was ORANGE as opposed to a traditional RED SAUCE. Our waitress, Chelsey was extremely PLEASANT!!!
Once again we had a fantastic meal! Highly recommend going here for their steak selection. Great service too- they fulfilled a request for a quieter table for a special birthday night out.
Great service and food
Service was exceptional! Staff friendly, knowledgeable and courteous.
Giancarlo's was everything I hoped it would be and more. I made a reservation for my birthday weekend and I was running late due to a previous activity with my group. We called and they were happy to push our time slot back instead of cancelling our reservation. The kitchen was supposed to close at 9pm, and we arrived at 9pm. Even though it was quitting time for the staff, they never showed it. Our meal was as fantastic as it would have been if we were the first customers through the door. Our server was energetic and engaging, even though it was late in the evening. The crab crusted salmon was the best salmon I've EVER had! The shrimp were large and juicy, the drinks were perfect...I couldn't have asked for a better birthday dining experience. Kudos to the staff that was there on the evening of February 3rd, 2018; YOU GUYS ROCK!
Great service great bar great food. We had a great time
Food would have been much better if our steaks came out the way we ordered them. Both my medium well steak and my husband's medium rare steak appetizer came out well done. The sides with my steak were cold so they didn't taste good, I didn't end up eating the sides only the steak. My husbands chicken wrap was dry. The service waa good though
Excellent food! Had a great family meal. Looking for are to returning
Food is always amazing as well as the service!
Over priced for quality of the food. Piazza was burnt, and the lobster rolls was to have kettle chips but came with large bowl of crushed regular potato chips. We also ordered the small plate meatballs and was asked if we wanted spaghetti with them. When bill came we were charged for a full dinner entree which I felt was the waitress jacking up the bill.
Great neighborhood find! Excellent meatballs. Although everything is very good on this menu, I highly They are the best you have ever had
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.
