We sat on the balcony on the corner and loved the music coming from the park. We had fabulous oysters on their half price special. Collin was our server and he always makes our experience great. The food was excellent as always. It’s our go to place for special times.

Rude hostess
Waitress was fine
Mains were horrible; so salty they were inedible; scallops were rubbery, undercooked and stone cold in the middle; chicken pasta was just awful
We barely ate anything but instead of asking if anything was wrong....we were given boxes to bring the leftovers home. 😂 Paid the bill and
dumped the dinner garbage into the garbage right outside the restaurant.
Total Waste of $250 for 3 ppl

An excellent meal on a cozy outdoor second floor balcony. We were very pleased with the food and the service was among the best we have experienced anywhere in Greenville. In addition, the wine suggestions were spot on.

This is a wonderful restaurant, located on Main Street in Greenville South Carolina. Although I usually order the halibut, I chose the chicken for my entrée and was definitely not disappointed. The chicken was incredibly tender and tasty. This has become one of my favorite restaurant in Greenville.
The server, Patrick, was very efficient and made certain that everything had been prepared to my liking.
This is definitely a restaurant you do not want to miss.

Wow - the pasta special (lobster on rotini-like noodles with squash and ricotta) was probably the best pasta I've ever eaten! All the food at Jianna is very good, and we enjoyed the outdoor seating (there are heaters overhead which made it comfortable on a cool evening). Excellent service - a great place for dinner in downtown Greenville!

Great place. Good ambiance. Outstanding food --- plenty of choices to suit everyone.
Service was a little slow, as we sat outside on the balcony & our waiter seemed to be very busy inside. Still would go back again & again.

We had friends in town from TX and wanted to take them to one out of favorite restaurants in Greenville. Jianna did not disappoint! Everyone was happy with their cocktail and meal selections. Not to mention for excellent service by the Sommelier....3 bottles later! We had a mix of regular menu items and some of the specials. All were fantastic! Great service by the waitstaff too. Thanks Jianna for having patience with us as we were there a little bit beyond closing time.

Simply the best. If you're looking for wonderful experience from top to bottom, look no further than Jianna. Our go-to for a wonderful dining evening! We enjoyed a bottle from their reserve cellar dining on their delicious daily pasta specials. Each time we dine with Jianna, we're never disappointed and immediately start planning our return visit.

I’m so glad that we were able to go to Jianna’s. We enjoyed everything from appetizers, wine choices, main entrees, and dessert. The views of the city were fun. Nice ambiance and delicious food! The cost seemed a bit high, great service though, and I’m sure cost reflects the wonderful location. Make a reservation!

I had such a great night out at Jianna. We had a table outside under the heater and it was perfect! The whole staff was super friendly and was visited by both managers throughout the night. The whole staff made sure throughout the night that I had everything I needed and I couldn’t of asked for anything more. Tina, our server the MVP of my night. She recommended our wine and guided us through the menu and helped us pick out a few courses. Couldn’t of asked for anything more. 10/10 would recommend her and Jianna.

The waiter(s) were very good an attentive. The food was good to very good.
My problem was related to Kitchen staff not wearing masks and also I saw one of them eating while in the food preparation area. I can only conclude poor management.

I’ve been to this restaurant several times, and I have never been let down. I am by no means a “foodie” but this place always seems to serve meals that make me enjoy every single bite. In a town full of great places to eat, Jianna is still a step above anything else here.

Of all the establishments that I have dined at from north to south and east to west this has been the worst experience that I have experienced. To start, which bothers me the most, is that I made reservations for outdoor dining. As soon as we arrived the first words out of the hostess was , “we have no outdoor dinning”. I said we made reservations for that and she said we have no record of it. So I showed her the open table confirmation email and she just look at me like it did not matter. So either open table does not work as advertised or she is just not telling the truth. I saw many people head out to outdoor dining that evening. I assume that the manager just tells the hostesses to not tell the truth when they feel like it. So who ever hired the management of this establishment must not have a clue what it takes to be successful or just have no integrity. For the meal that was another fiasco. Most of our order did not make it out with the other entrees. Not the waitress’s fault but the kitchen. Again just poor management So, there are so many great places in Greenville, you should pick up on the roof as your last resort.

The food and service at Jianna were outstanding...will definitely return! Next time, however, I would request table up front - didn’t enjoy seating in back near restrooms.
