The food was excellent. Unfortunately, our appetizer came after we finished our meal. We took it to go. Our server gave us free coffee. Dessert was mentioned, but never offered. I would still go back. Things happen.

We started with martini's and the Gino's appetizer platter. We absolutely enjoyed the oysters rockafellar, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp and medallions. The ribs were not very good. We like the oysters so much that we ordered another dozen. Our waiter was excellent. We had a great experience and look forward to our next visit.

Everything was great except when we had coffee at the end of the meal. It tasted burnt. They did credit us for the coffee.

Restaurant was very loud. And server took almost 30 mins to get me. 3 people came asking if she’d been over but non offered to take my order. My lamb rack tasted amazing but my husband steak was full of fat and tasteless :(

Four of went to celebrate my wife's birthday last weekend.

All of our drinks, appetizers and entrees were great, but the service could use some work.

Our server seemed overly busy and if we hadn't flagged her down multiple times to place our orders, I'm not sure how long we would've had to wait. We seemed like an afterthought to her and if it wasn't the food, our experience would've been much more negative. No acknowledgement of the birthday either.

I would expect their service to match their prices, but that didn't happen.

Absolutely horrible

Got seated in the Back , felt like it was a closet in the kitchen, asked to be moved to a different table, hostess rudely said we are fully booked !
When in reality there were 5 empty open tables in the patio section

Will not go back and spend my money there ever again

Our steaks were prepared very well. We always enjoy the hot bread that we receive before ordering. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was always around when we needed him and very attentive. The outside patio area was very nice with the breeze blowing we felt very safe from COVID and appreciated the mask compliance.

Very good experience.

Food was delicious, service very attentive.
A bit of a delay between salad/soup and the entree
Beautiful environment that has been well kept
This was our first visit and we’re looking forward to making it a favorite

I love the place. Wife had a great steak and I the pork chop with sauce. The staff made sure your were well taken care of. Very friendly and efficient; never had to ask for anything - they were there. Wife and I only come here on our anniversary and the staff treats us great.

It was my birthday and we were treated well. Unfortunately the server had several tables and was rushed by some demanding diners so we had to wait for certain things a little bit. She was very attentive and pleasant just rushed

Steaks were not prepared as ordered and one person’s order was lost. We waited 40 minutes to get his steak. To compensate they offered free desert but did not state it was only for him. They included 18% in the bill which was for table of 6. That was far more than deserved

Food was good, although Calamari could have been cooked longer. And the gratuity is a 20% after bill is closed at 9pm regardless of how many people are at the table.

Very prejudice to ethnicity. . Guess never had Asian Customers. . Was generous and helpful to neighboring tables, helped packed leftovers for them, nicely asked for drinks and served in timely manner. . Ours instead “what you want to drink” then an hour later, “you know what you want”???. . Food was cold and salty, had to ask for 2nd round of drinks, never stopped to be refilled , Table of 2 (myself and my wife) order about $200 worth and they added gratuity for the very bad non-service given. . Never again

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.
