excellent food, prompt, courteous and efficient service in a very pleasant environment
The staff is top notch
Food is fresh and delicious
The service & food was excellent.
Long wait to be seated with a reservation. Need to have a host/hostess to seat customers and not have customers ask where to find someone to help. Had large party in a small room so was extra noisy. Food, except for salads, was good and plentiful. When asked to substitute a starch for the vegetables they did so but failed to alert me there would be an extra charge.
Excellent food and attentive service
As always we are never disappointed. Douglas our requested server was his usual professional, pleasant self. An enjoyable delicious evening.
Our waiter who has been 32 years is phenomenal.
He was very attentive and made our visit very enjoyable
Excellent meal as always, Sal, Joanne & team always make you feel so welcomed. One of our favorite places. Wished we lived closer to Darien to visit more frequently.
My dinner with my better half reminded of Manero's Restaurant (Greenwich) back in its hay day. The prime rib was outstanding! The garlic bread, gorgonzola salad, and french fried onion strings were very reminiscent of a former, beloved steakhouse on Steamboat Road in lower Fairfield County. All that's missing is an adjacent butcher shop selling all of goodies from the restaurant.
Great place, it would be amazing if they added outdoor seating by the water, realize it would be somewhat difficult to get food to area from kitchen, but perhaps just a bar area for ppl to have drinks and enjoy the water
Really depressing atmosphere. Dated decor. Old smell. Food ok.
The food was delicious & the staff were amazing! Highly recommend!
End of summer meal. Excellent meal and service. Always a great meal and service when we eat there

EVERYTHING WAS VERY ENJOYABLE, FOOD AS USUAL THE BEST. NICE TO SEE ALL THE STAFF AGAIN.
THANKS VERY MUCH SAL AND JOANN. SEE YOU AGAIN SOON
As usual, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
Food was very tasty but a pricey. Service was excellent - friendly and attentive.
Wow. Haven’t been to Giovanni’s for a while. I remember it as a warm and friendly spot to linger over great steaks and seafood and Italian specialties. So glad to see that it still is! Proprietors JoAnn and Sal welcomed us as if they were welcoming us to their home. Our server was attentive and helpful. And the steaks… what can I say except that they exceeded our expectations! Best wine list in the area. Oh… don’t skip dessert!
Also a wonderful evening of excellent food, great drinks and friends.
Been going to Giovannis’s for many many years! Since they were originally on long ridge road. Great garlic bread and steaks and Gorgonzola salad’s ! Never disappointed!!
We returned to The Waters Edge to celebrate where we got married nine years ago. Still the best food, service, and ambience. It has remained a great place to eat and host events all these years. So glad we could go back and visit where our marriage began. Thank you staff for welcoming us back. It was a great to visit with you again.

Very enjoyable! I had wonderful swordfish and my husband’s steak was prepared at the temperature he requested. We will definitely dine here again.
Always an excellent evening
Sal and his crew always present good food and service!
Always a lovely evening with a delicious meal. Wonderful friendly atmosphere.
We had a great Anniversary dinner. Our waiter, George, was attentive and personable. We really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.
Excellent food, excellent service. It made my wife's birthday special. We particularly appreciated how the environment was kept safe and properly socially distanced.
We have always had delicious meals at Waters Edge at Giovanni's. There are no bad choices.
We enjoyed our Easter dinner here. Service was attentive, food was excellent and I like that the salad and garlic bread were included with entree. Had octopus appetizer which was beautifully grilled, tender and served over creamy hummus, an interesting and tasty combination. My filet mignon was done to perfection and very tender. Rib eye also very good, as was rack of lamb. I'd recommend mashed potatoes over roasted. Wine list just ok for me. Finished with a very nice cappuccino. Too full for dessert! We want to go back again and try other selections. So nice that it's on the water.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a family home. Food and service never disappoint. Sal and Joanne are great hosts whose only concern is that you are happy and satisfied.
Excellent. Service, food, atmosphere.
The food and staff were absolutely great. The portions we quite large and absolutely scrumptious 😋. This was our second time there and we will keep returning. Tom Arbron of Arbron Media Associates gave me the recommendation and I am sure glad he did.
Sal and team do an excellent service. Tables very well spaced for current environment
Excellent service and great food. Very spacious rooms great for 6 ft distance. The office staff and servers were very friendly and helpful.
Good food and service, as always! We'll keep coming back.
Despite that is was a busy night for the restaurant the service and food was excellent.
EXCELLENT once again. The consistency in good food, good service , friendly atmosphere and , now, CoVid compliancy make WEG one of our favorite places to go!
