Giovanni's recent renovation brings the atmosphere more in tune to today's feelings. The Picasso Room with wood paneling, distinctive artwork, fireplace & elegant French doors, seating up to 30, is ideal for corporate & social functions.
The imaginative cuisine offers surprising variations of classic recipes including handmade pastas, seafood, veal, lamb, beef & game. Elegance & first class service are an experience not to be missed. The more casual lounge & bar areas are excellent alternatives serving the same menu as the main dining room.
Roasted bone marrow, fried egg yolk, mustard seed, basil pesto, garlic toast
Mushrooms, bacon, butternut squash latke, leeks, brown butter, swiss chard, lemon
Almonds, raisins, balsamic
This is the best place for a romantic dinner. Food is excellent and service impeccable. A must go for a special occasion.
Had emailed a few days prior asking about dress code and never got a response. No signs outside of building so it was hard to find. Seated right away but then a long time to take order and took about 30 minutes to even get drinks. Service was extremely slow throughout the restaurant. Had made a note on reservation that we were celebrating my birthday and they made no acknowledgement of this. When we got dessert menu, it did not match the website menu which was one of the main reasons we chose this restaurant was due to the unique desserts listed online, so we didn't even order dessert. The clam chowder was amazing. The manager or owner was seen out on the floor trying to help with service. We are from out of town but we probably wouldn't visit a second time.
Nothing is better than having dinner with friends at Giovanni's!
We were there Saturday night- food was delicious, service was excellent and welcoming upbeat atmosphere!!
Amazing experience yet again! Everything was outstanding!
We arrived right on time and were immediately taken to our table. The server came immediately to our table to see if we wanted drinks, deliver an extensive wine list on an iPad and was friendly and quite helpful.
My wife is gluten free and they were able to make almost anything on the menu gluten free. They did not have gluten free bread but did have gluten free pasta.
We had the deviled egg appetizer, it was very good. The entrees came out right away and were great. We took home cheesecake for dessert and it was a very good night.
Price was quite reasonable for the value.
Halibut was outstanding! My husband enjoyed his mussels/clams/ lobster seafood pasta dish too.
Outstanding food and service. Joe was a terrific server. We’ve been going to Giovanni’s for forty years and it never fails to impress.
This was our inaugural visit to Giovanni's...and we loved it!! Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Our Waiter was joyful, helpful and just plan fun! We were entertaining dear friends from out-of-town, who were delighted by dinner. We can't wait to go back!
As always, very good. Staff and management very friendly, and very accommodating. This is one of our favorite Dinning spots.
Beautiful setting, outstanding food &
excellent service. A new favorite!
Way to much butter in the halibut broth. Almost inedible
Another wonderful lunch at Giovanni's! Always such wonderful food and service.
Beautiful setting, very attentive staff and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed our lunch very much!
Food and service were excellent. Pierre made the night special.
I’ve been to Giovannis dozens of times over the years and have always had a stellar experience until last week.
We were seated promptly, our drinks came out quickly, and then our waiter disappeared for 20 minutes. I had to find Carl to ask if we could have service. Our orders were taken and we were back on track. The food presentation and quality have clearly slipped. My entree looked like it was a mush of baby food. The salad was so overly dressed that the lettuce wilted. I was so disappointed and remain so. Giovannis was my favorite fine dining restaurant in Cleveland.
I wish them well but I cannot see going back again.
Never had a bad meal there. Service impeccable as always.
Since Covid19 put a stop to a party, we celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary with one of our daughters at Giovannis. It was a perfect evening.
Excellent food and good service. Large portions always
Fantastic food. Great service
Always fantastic, still the best in Cleveland!
Giovannis always delivers when it comes to providing excellent food and service! We enjoyed our anniversary celebration there and it was our first time out to a restaurant since mid-March. Can’t wait to return.
It was our first time and we loved it. Everything we ordered was outstanding and the service was friendly, helpful and attentive. We will definitely be back,
Waiters not wearing masks and not disinfecting menus in between people
Outside patio is lovely, food is always delicious
Sat in the bar. Wonderful ambiance. Fabulous food. Great service.
The food was outstanding, and the staff, as always attentive. Really enjoy this gem. Outside dinning was very comfortable.
Only comment, a couple walked in with no mask. Feel the management should have addressed it.
Other then that, great place, and will be back.
Always wonderful... consistent and yummy!! The patio is cover so it’s always good for warm raining days!
ServIce Was slow. Tables on patio were no where near six feet apart They have added many more Tables to patio. Staff did wear masks. Menus were not paper. Used by all. Didn’t see them sanitized between guests. Would not go back unless the6 improved their Covid standards.
Our first time for dinner on the outdoor patio was a memorable experience. Even in this outdoor setting everything was just as you would expect at Giovanni's. Excellent, attentive and polite service with outstanding food and drink at a perfectly set table.
As always, excellent!
Awesome experience. Halibut and scallops were excellent.
Excellent as always!
43 years still excellent food service atmosphere classy
Everything the restaurant could control was great, but we were seated near a loud, vulgar diner who sadly made us want to leave.
The food was very good and the waitress great.
The seating was nowhere near 6’ apart, the busboys’ masks were below the nose and gloves were worn. This was not the clean, socially distanced COVID-era experience I would expect from Giovanni’s.
The website states “jackets required”, yet we saw most without, and several wearing jeans and T-shirts. Either require proper dress as stated or remove the requirement from the website.
Delightful fine dining as usual.
It was wonderful! We sat in the patio and it was delight!
Fabulous evening for husband’s 65th bday! Service was outstanding, patio was lovely and food delicious! My pet peeve is being rushed and we had none of that! Best of all they practiced safe Covid dining. We will go again for sure!
Always excellent. Food, service are top notch!
Always a memorable experience! We've been there many times and will definitely return.
