Service was great! Food was great! It was very crowded and very noisy. Lots of big parties, which made a party of two overwhelmed and unable to have a conversation...

Service was good, food was hot, drinks were slow in coming and a bit pricey. Average dinner tap was about 75 bucks person with tip.

So a little pricey to visit often, but will go again

Extremely loud in the back dining area. So much so that incoming groups asked to leave. Steaks were incredibly over done and had to be replaced.

Been almost a year since our last visit and IMHO, things have changed. My meal seemed a little off. Meat wasn't as tender. Maybe they've changed suppliers, not sure.

Good food and service was great
The booth we were seated at had old dried up food on the wall so I was not happy about that.

The food and service was excellent considering how crowded the restaurant became. I'm sorry I didn't advise this was an anniversary dinner for us as we were seated in a room with two very large family parties.

We frequent this restaurant and it never disappoints. I like that their food is consistently amazing. I hate going to establishments that the food is hit or miss. Gino’s not only has fantastic food, but also has outstanding service. The wait staff is attentive without being annoying, quick without rushing you and the quality of food compares to no other restaurant in NWI.

Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, and great music genre! Dining experience rivaled upscale steakhouses in Chicago except we were close to home. Food preparation and presentation were excellent, and the cocktails were also on point 👌 Highly recommended for a fantastic dining experience. The occasion is being here, nothing else is required except your appetite!

Went here to celebrate my birthday. We were sat in the very back room because we didn’t want to sit in the open air space. The room we were in was freezing. About 15 minutes later, an even larger party of about 15 people sat next to us an they were LOUD. From conversations being held on speakerphone, to Jingle Bells being played over and over on a tablet for a fussy toddler, to their loud conversations about any and everything under the sun, we decided to leave before we ate the rest of our food. It was intolerable.

I’m going to make this short and sweet. Good ambiance, clean place, good service, and the food is good. My only complaint is I feel it’s overpriced compared with similar places. I don’t believe they have a steak for less than $40, my 24oz bone in rib-eye was $54. Like I said the food was good, but nothing wowed me. I’ve had similar steaks at half that price. So it’s a good place to take a date and impress or to bring family, but just know you will be paying quite a bit extra for food that you are not going to be craving to hurry up and get back there.

Surf and Turf was outstanding. Huge lobster tail and tender filet. Double baked potatoe and salad completed my meal. The seasoned peppers brought to table before dinner were great. Ambiance in restaurant was awesome. Staff was available whenever needed. I will be back soon!

We love Gino's overall and have been there several times. I wanted lamb chops but you were out. You were also out of strawberries for my cheese cake. I was surprised by that.
Also we were there to celebrate my husband's birthday and was seated in the back next to a large group with crying toddlers.
In addition, it was very warm in the room and did not get cooler until we were almost done.
Our waiter was pleasant and attentive and we appreciate that.
Thank you

It was my first time at Ginos & I must say I enjoyed it. The food was delicious. I had the tenderloin medallions Diane. Loved the gravy that came with it as well as the beef soup and potatoes. I was especially impressed with the double baked potatoes. It was very chic and perfect for a date night. I will be returning again soon.

Went to Gino’s for a birthday celebration. We really enjoyed the horseshoe booth that we were placed. It helped with the ambiance in conversation and made it because he table for four. Fillet mignon‘s were ordered as well as chicken Vesuvio. Those meals were absolutely mouthwatering! The lobster bisque soup was delicious although it could have included a few more pieces of lobster. The service by Andy was impeccable! Probably the best service we’ve received in a restaurant in years! He even spoiled the birthday girl with a caramel ice cream dessert with a beautiful flaming candle!

The music playing was very distracting and did not match the ambiance. It was too loud. I would recommend playing smooth jazz.

PROS

1. Servers and staff wore masks the entire time

2. Oysters Rockefeller and Crab Cake appetizers were yummy.

3. Server, Pete was professional, warm and courteous

CONS

1. Wait was over 90 minutes from the time we finished our appetizers before our entrees came out.

2. Both entrees (Ribeye and lamb chops [lollipop], were lukewarm, tough and bland.

3. A longer than normal wait time to have payment processed (roughly 20-30 minutes).

4. The restaurant appeared to be short staffed for the number of customers present.

Not sure what was going on this day but the food was NOT good. May have been a different chef the day we went. Normally the food is great but I had 2 dishes that were not flavorful and burnt and my friend had one dish that was bad as well. Also one of those orders was the Lang chops that I ordered as a to go item. Only received 3 lamb chops for dinner portion which should’ve been 4 and they were all burnt. Not to mention it took forever for them to get ready so much so that I asked to cancel the order. Then they were miraculously ready. Smh. I’m going to give them another chance because I do like the place and normally the food is good. The drinks were on point.
