Considering the new “norm” they are doing the best they can. Service, food and personnel attention was excellent. Special touches considering it was a birthday was appreciated. Food was hot and they drinks cold. Thank you very much!

Second time we have dined outdoors and both were exceptional. We had the same waiter both times as well and he was a pleasure.

This is an old-school steak house, with a nice, very safe outdoor scene during covid-19. The service was friendly and wonderful, they try really hard. however the steaks were not top notch, and way over cooked when we got them the first time. Disappointing from a food perspective, but very nice in every other way.

My favorite place in Stamford for steak (better than Capital Grill or Blackstones).
I Just wish they had a little broader selection of Scotches.
Great Italian dishes and Seafood, too!

Another delicious dinner at The Water’s Edge at Giovanni’s. The food and service were terrific. The staff strictly adhered to safety guidelines at all times. The Outdoor Patio was tasteful and afforded a gorgeous view. Sal and JoAnn were great hosts as always!

The outdoor dining was great. We initially sat on the Adirondack chairs on the periphery of the tent adjacent to the water then moved under the tent for dinner.

Service was great as was the food. We regularly go to WEG but this was the first time "under the tent" Highly recommended.

A reliable family favorite! Never fails to satisfy. Don't pass up the garlic bread. But the steaks are the reason to go.

We spent time in the bar area while waiting for the rest of our party. Connie is a gem! She is fantastic. Walter was so acommodating as our waiter, my brother-in-law was still singing his praises the next day. Everyone was delighted w/ the food selections. A member of our party was competing in an ice skating competition down the road, Walter brought over a dessert w/ the writing "good luck" on it for her. How great was that!!!

Delicious porterhouse for 2. Great garlic bread. Simple salad.
We had enough to take home for another dinner and it was just what we were in the mood for.

I was really pleased to find out this was the same group from the old Giovanni's from Long Ridge Road. Very friendly. Awesome butter soaked Garlic Bread automatically placed on the table. Salad was great. Calamari was rings only. Lolly pop lamb chops were tasty. Really liked the prime rib on the bone. Attentive staff. Great experience. Oh, valet parking.

A unique place that you just have to visit to appreciate. We met basically a large portion of the restaurant and bar staff who were all very welcoming and friendly in lieu of heirs nor phoniness. I'm not saying it's family style or that the staff are predominately family, but as a customer I felt we fit in as one does with their own family. This also included my friend celebrating her 55th birthday that very night, The food was impeccable as was the service! It was a first for us, but we're looking forward to seconds and many more visits to this gold needle in the hay stack of otherwise mediocre restaurants found locally. To boot the value is there. It may not be an inexpensive establishment, however it's well worth it. Our taste buds were smiling all the way home and at lunch the next day :)

There was some type of affair taking place in the room across from the dining room and every type the door was left open it took away from the ambience of having dinner. Everything else was superb.

One of the best overall meal experiences we have had in a long time. This place is a throwback to the time when white glove service was the norm and not the exception. The owner is deeply involved in all aspects of the operations, and it clearlt shows.
