Giovanni's Bistro & Bar Ratings and Reviews
I frequently dine at Giovanni's and I'm never disappointed. My friend and I decided to go on New Year's Eve and it was fantastic as usual!!! We both had Scallops over Endive, all I can say is it was one of the best meals I ever had!! Greg and Xavier always give superb service, I can't say enough about this restaurant, it's fabulous!!!
headed over on New year's Eve - small place with limited holiday menu was fine and food is good- just needed to head out to honor the next seating - also when full, hard to walk on and about - glad to hear they may be expanding - more room may help lead them to an increase in profits - wish them success -
Food was fantastic loved the pistachio crusted salmon. Service was exemplary kind, caring and knowledgeable. Maitre d welcomed us and the restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holidays nice touch with the menorah. Star ledger was spot on with the great review. Will certainly return. Thank you for such a pleasant dining experience.
As always, my wife & I had almost enjoyable dining experience on this Friday. Greg, Xavier & all the serving staff treated us as family. The meal itself (duck confit) as well as the overall dining experience was over the top, again as always. HTs off to the chef & the kitchen staff, too.
The food, service and ambience were all world-class. Truly exceptional in every way. I will be back, and will strongly encourage friends and associates to frequent this excellent restaurant. This was my first meal there, and I could not have been more impressed.
A classic local gem. We happened to notice it on Open Table, read previous good reviews and so decided to try. Location is small, and very non-pretentious but it understands the quality of everything else. From the second we walked in the door, the service was as attentive and as top notch as I have every had. Staff clearly focused on making sure we had a great dining experience. Food was very good. I would like to try more selections before commenting further. I'm a little surprised that they aren't a BYOB, and wine selection is small, but very good and reasonably priced, and it wasn't a big hit to price tab. We are certainly going to return in near future. Selfishly I hope it remains a hidden gem!
Nice place- seems like a local go to - food was good - it may be better to not have the television on with talk shows- maybe if the bar was bigger it would work - the people who work there offer great service and want all to feel welcome -
Had visited this restaurant about 2 years ago with the previous manager and chef. Since they re-opened, I can say that the food was just as good, and service is commendable. I'd like to see a few more creative "new" dishes on the menu, but food is solid and preparation is executed well.
As always, a great night for dining at Giovanni's Bistro and Bar Restaurant. They treat their guests like family and it is always a most enjoyable dining experience. if you are tired of the hustle and bustle and noise of some restaurants, come to Berkeley Heights and enjoy quiet dining, accommodating staff and great food which is fresh and delicious! Not to mention, a full bar of handcrafted cocktails and a varied wine list. Come meet Greg, your host, and delight in the Giovanni's experience. A Neighborhood Gem at its finest!
Giovanni's has the right formula: creative cuisine, ambiance, and a first-rate manager, Greg, at the front of the house who makes everyone welcome. He also makes a great cocktail. 🍸Xavier is a top notch waiter who is most accommodating. Delicious food in a great atmosphere is the perfect recipe for success. Try it. Like us, you will keep coming back!!
