The service was impeccable. We had Vicki as our server and she met every one of our needs. It was my husband 60th Birthday and dining here made it even more special. From the porterhouse steak, double baked potato and the carrot cake he had for dinner. I order the risotto with medallions and it was outstanding!

Cesar salad not edible. Soggy and tasteless. Was not given opportunity to reorder or have it taken off bill. Not Gino’s standards.

I dined there with a friend this past Tuesday. We sat in the outdoor seating area. We both ordered the rib-eye which was fantastic! I had a cosmo which was made perfectly- the color and taste was spot on! Everyone was friendly. The service was awesome and we had a great time! First time but not the last.

We came here for our anniversary. Everything was great! From the moment we walked in the hostess was very friendly we was seated right away. Our waitress Vicky (I want to say that was her name) was excellent very attentive and knowledgeable about menu. Everything we asked her about on the menu she gave us feedback and it was delicious. The prices are very reasonable and worth every penny plus the parking is FREE! It’s 5 minutes away from my house. I won’t waste my time or money going downtown. Check them out you won’t be disappointed!

Drinks- Good
Eggplant Stack- absolutely terrible!
Tilapia Piccata- then piece of fish over a pile of vegetables. Baked potato very hard!
Shrimp DeJonghe- over cooked shrimp in the garlic wine sauce was very salty could not finish it.

Not a good time on our 43rd anniversary very disappointed at the quality of the food this time.

When we entered the restaurant it seemed quite full. The hostess claimed they were at 75% capacity, I’m not sure that was the case. Yes, we could have left, but we needed this night out. Was hoping for a nice dinner, but the music was blaring at times and heard Metallica playing on the sound system. Not the ambiance we were looking for. Our request to fix this was addressed, but the music got loud again. I must say the food was great, the waitress was great too. I left with a headache due to loud music.

The new outdoor patio is great. The lunch menu has many selections, at good prices. Loved the sausage, onions, and peppers. They were kind, and gave me a small bowl of olives. MMMMMMMM

Steaks were great, as usual! Gino's dinners are always great. The only critique I would give is our martini's. The last few times we had dinner at Gino's, everyones martini on the rocks had very little Vodka in them. The glasses looked like it was 95% Ice. Not sure I would order another martini there. Other than that, Love Gino's!

Although Gino’s food is delicious and their dessert menu is enticing, the star of our meal was THE SERVICE. DJ made our anniversary night amazing, fun, and relaxing. Behind the mask was a giant smile and man full of personality and passion for his job. We felt well taken care of and appreciated the perfect amount of attention. Thank you for helping us celebrate in style!

When making my reservation I requested a booth. Upon arrival we were escorted to back room that had a v musty oder. My wife ordered the crab legs and I ordered the Steak and lobster tail. When the food arrived everything was over done and dry. I ordered my steak to be medium but it arrived well done. the lobster was chewy and dry. My wife's crab legs were also very dry.

Server was non-attentive, never checked to see how are entrees were, which were tasteless, plus my chicken Marsala was so over cooked it had burnt, black edges on it! Tomato bread was so bland with gummy tomatoes fresh basil would have been a nice addition and the bread should have been toasted with garlic. Never plan to return this establishment.

We had to modify our reservation a couple of times because of running late with no problems at all. We were seated immediately after arriving and seated at a nice table. The servers brought peppers and bread very quickly. Everything we had was very enjoyable and helped our celebration To be nothing less than perfect! Will definitely go back again!

In our neck of the woods, Gino's is a great place to go for steak or seafood provided with attentive service. The food is always excellent quality and presented wonderfully. And, who can resist the peppers that come before the meal?!

Food was mediocre, at best. Waitress was more intrerested in serving a group, then us. The only thing that made this restaurant get the two star rating overall was being seated on the patio. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, to an enemy

This was my 3rd or 4th time there and each time had been pretty amazing. The food was tasty and prepared well. However this time the Italian sausage and peppers were not as I expected. The sausage was cut in small bite size pieces and the peppers were overdone. It also wasn’t very flavorful.

Both of our entrees of Red snapper at $44 were way overdone and tasteless. I believe it was supposed to have spinach, but there was so little I don’t recall tasting it. The two shrimp were also on the dry side. P

What made the experience palatable was being able to sit outside. The ambience there is really wonderful.

We went into this date night super excited to try a new place. Incredibly overpriced steak. I've had better steak at half the cost of the meal. Asked for a medium ny strip. Got a well done one. My wife got a filet medium which was cooked medium well. Drinks were awful too. Our server never came around to see how our meal was. She cared more about the tables that had more people at them. We will never come back here and we'll make sure to let our friends and family know the same thing. Manager didn't seem to care when I said nothing was very good. If you're going to charge over $100 for a steak dinner for 2 some part of the meal/drinks should be good right?

I would definitely recommend somewhere else for good a good steak dinner.

We really enjoyed our time and meal at Gino's. Service was outstanding. Our server provided excellent service. She didn't miss a beat. She was always available to make sure we had everything we needed.
The food was really good. I had a New York strip steak cooked exactly the way I asked. Very tender and juicy. The double bsked potato was very good and the salad was crisp and fresh. I had the homemade creamy garlic dressing on my salad which was very good.
We will be back again!
