Giovanni's Kitchen was superb, as usual. I love it!
Giovanni’s is a great restaurant that is hidden in Clayton. Food is fantastic....love their pasta and fish entrees. Service is great and not over-bearing. Our waiter was “Joe” and he was amazing.
We were celebrating a college graduation and had a large group. Everything was great! We all enjoyed our meals, wine, bread. The servers were on top of it and the manager was friendly and helpful. We were able to get seated early, the food came out in a timely manner and the dishes were excellent. The portions were plenty and some of us took home leftovers.
Love the sea bass oh my!! You must try it the price is really really worth it.
We were seated at our table, it took some time before we were even acknowledged by a server who then asked us our drink order and we had no idea what was even offered to drink there. We asked for a drink list and were told they don’t really have one. I asked the server to recommend a red wine, he didn’t know. My date asked about whiskeys or scotch and he was unsure about what they offered and couldn’t give an answer there either. After ordering drinks Twice we were brought glasses that were either dirty or something was floating in the drink, we ordered appetizers one was good, the other had smoked salmon on it which was tough and could Barely be cut through it with a fork or knife. We ordered salads at the same time as our appetizers and waited about an hour before we finally decided to cancel our order, request the tab and leave.
Food, service and wine were all excellent. Waiter was very accommodating and helpful in suggesting entrees.
Food was delicious, but service was very slow. The staff seemed challenged, especially as the tables started filling up.
Nice neighborhood restaurant with consistently good food. By today's standards, prices are in line with food quality.
Another positive experience. Can count on the friendliness of the servers and quality of food.
Always great. Matt our favorite server always allows us to set the pace of the meal. Went for fish instead of pasta and it was excellent. Best value in town.
The lettuce for the salad was tuff and old, was not impressed with the seafood spaghetti dish as did not seem fresh seafood which was over cooked with under done pasta. Friends dish was good.
Great staff. Very attentive to a larger group. Made good menu suggestions without pushing the expense acct items to pad the bill. Pasta tasting was incredible. And don’t miss Nona’s Meatballs!!
A pleasant Wednesday evening. The food was excellent. The Lamb Chops were uniquely prepared and delicious. Service was efficient and comfortable. Worthy of the label, "Fine Dining"
Food and service very good, ate outside, so can't comment on inside ambiance.
Always a pleasant dining experience, with great food including options of smaller portions for the smaller appetite, and a great wine list. We often eat here before heading downtown for the Fox, and they are always able to accommodate us when we have a limited time for dinner.
Nice place to catch up with an old friend. Quiet enough to hear each other talk, friendly and attentive waitress who didn’t make us feel rushed (it was a weeknight which helped), and the food was delicious.
Very good food; service was very slow - sat for 15 minutes before waiter came
The food was delicious and the service was excellent, we will be sure and go back soon.
Had a great family get together. My mom doesn't hear so well and won't get hearing aids so it is important that it not be noisy. This restaurant was not noisy. Thank you, Matthew, for the excellent service. And for knowing that we were not in a rush and making sure the courses came out at the correct pace. A real professional.
Great balance of quality and price.
Very tasty Italian food each time that I have eaten there.
I rarely give 5 stars to a restaurant...has to be over-the-top outstanding but we really enjoyed our meal here. It's real Italian cooking, sometimes with a twist like the veal in cognac...tender & very tasty! The salads were nice...more than just lettuce & tomato....the eggplant/mozzarella was very good but wished for those homegrown beauties & fresh mozzarella. The waiter was knowledgable & prompt & seemed truly to care about us which is always a plus. We'll definitely be back!
Great ambience, location, waitress, food, perfect for after work casual and well priced, upscale dinning!
Server was the best. Seating was not ideal but the service made up for that. Food was good.
I found the nice level perfect. Food and service also perfect.
Always great food and service. They do fish better than most seafood restaurants.
Food and service 1st rate. Our server Matt was great. This place is so reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. We appreciate the smaller portion options.
Great food and service. It was cold in the dining room.
Food is excellent, pasta portions a little small for the price. Will go back again because the flavors were great!
hard to know your rating for noise
we went there for quiet and found it
My family loves this restaurant!! Besides the amazing food, everyone that works there is not only very professional, but also friendly and kind. Fabulous!!!
Always a great time when I bring my family..thanks so much for letting us enjoy your hospitality
Quality and taste of the food was excellent. Very allergy friendly restaurant. Can modify some menu items to satisfy dietary issues....and still make the food tasty. This was our first visit of many more to come.
This was my first time at Giovanni's Kitchen, and it will go on my list of favorite places. We were welcomed heartily and the food and service were very good.
Fantastic service & food.
The most delicious food and truly exceptional service
Giovanni's Kitchen in Ladue is consistently outstanding. Matt was our server. He was excellent as was our food. My wife enjoyed the Presidential Pasta (bowtie w/ salmon in light cream sauce). I had the Mahi Mahi special. Always a great evening meal. Love dining here anytime.
We always enjoy our dining experiences at Giovanni's Kitchen. Consistently good food, great service and nice menu. A perfect place for a casual dinner with friends, family or couples.
We took a dear friend out for birthday dinner and everything was perfect! Great place to celebrate a special event.
The perfect night :)
