    Seemed like there were problems in the kitchen, it took a very long time to get our meals. Also the waiter did not get our orders correct. Usually the service is much better. It was the first time our friends had been there in 20 years, was hoping they would have had a better experience.

    Love Giovanni‘s. They always invite you in with open arms and have you feeling special! The food is consistently outstanding. The prices are on par with portion size and quality. Their wine selection is most adequate. One downfall with this particular visit was our inexperienced waiter. I suspect he was one in training who definitely has not found his forte. Not a people person and not to enthusiastic. Luckily he was being somewhat monitored and advised. he give me the wrong information regarding the entrée I ordered A consequence of his lack of initiative. Not a dinner spoiler for me but could have been for someone else.

    My wife and I went for New Year's Eve. The prix fixe menu, ($185 per person), was a misnomer and did not fix the price. To our surprise, the bill included up charges for an additional $155. I have gone to this restaurant since the 70s; however, my New Year's resolution is to not return.

    Chowder was a potato cream soup with a few clams. Not a great clam chowder. Also served with a reheated film (crust). Capellini had too much sauce and the bites were too watery. Service was exceptional as was the dining room ambiance.

    We were seated right in front of a Private party with French doors left open so noise was unacceptable. Table was right in front of the private party area. Service was ok. Love the Dover sole…for the price it should be prepared table-side not from across the room where you cannot see the preparation.

    More than just excellent cuisine, very creative. Lobster Cobb had two lobster cakes and a small mound of lobster salad instead of just the usual greens salad with pieces of lobster meat mixed in. Dressed nicely. The chocolate dessert included several different ways of serving chocolate, including a thick bar of flourless chocolate cake, chocolate sorbet & a berry-chocolate truffle, & more, all of which made for a very EVIL dessert.

    Was so excited to try this as it came highly recommended. But overall I don’t think we’d return due to service. Our reservation was for 8:15 but it seems this place shuts down early, on a Saturday night most tables were empty and those seated were enjoying their entrees. Positive: the food was phenomenal- wedding soup, calamari steak, veal parm, cavatelli, tiramisu and sorbet. Everything I would eat again! I wish there were less of the potato sides and maybe something like a sausage or meatball. Negative: all of that good came in under and hour. We don’t get out much with two kids, so to be rushed on a rare date night with good food was really disappointing. What’s worse, we ordered coffee with dessert but were told the coffee machine was shut off for the night! There were about 6 or so tables still seated plus a private party, so that was very rude and unacceptable in my opinion. I am not a restaurant owner by any means, but come on, coffee takes 15 min to brew! Our ticket was about $250 so we weren’t skimping and truly trying to enjoy our night out. Staff cleared our dessert plates that were only half eaten. Granted we were stuffed, but maybe would’ve had another couple bites just do indulge while signing the check. I’ve never been so rushed at a nice restaurant. Would not recommend for a relaxing night out. Maybe sitting at the bar would’ve been better but why bother with a table if this is how they operate.

    Everything but the ambiance and the hostess' hospitality left something to be desired. Service was professional overall, but lacked polish for the price point. A lot of backhanding during service. Bread service is upon request or the server forgot, and once requested the bread is ok at best. Oysters were overwhelmed with the tomato granita, and seemed as if they had been sandbagged, making the oysters frozen to the taste. The "shaved" fennel is actually large diced and overwhelming. Finally the muscle was not removed from any Halibut was

    This is a beautiful restaurant. The surroundings are so relaxing and elegant. The service was all around the best service I think I’ve had in a long time. The dishes were made to perfection. It’s perfect for a romantic evening with your significant other, or even for a family dinner. I had brought my 9 year old daughter in on one occasion and the staff was just so pleasant with her and loved to have her. The setting is definitely more for adults, more sophisticated, though they still welcomed her in. I have never had a bad dish, bad service, or bad experience overall anytime I’ve eaten here. This is more than 5 star restaurant in my opinion. As many times as I’ve been here, I still get excited about coming here. This is a genuine Italian family restaurant with class! Until next time! -Kate.
