Food was very good. The waiter, however, was poor. He seemed as though he did not care, did not understand his own wine list, forgot to serve an item that was ordered, and , when giving me the bill, did nit say thank you or anything else..... simply placed it on the table. I did speak with the manager about the experience...... perhaps he will deal with it.

My friends, myself and my husband dined and danced last night (New Year’s Eve Dinner) and we were so happy with everything. The food was simply amazing. What a deal!? $75 for a four course meal and on top of that, we were blown away by being lead to the ballroom for tons of dessert, music and coffee and hot cocoa. It was the best party ever. We would go there again next year!!!

My family came to the restaurant for a New Year's Eve sit down dinner. Open table reservation revealed the menu. On that menu coffee and dessert were included. We were looking forward to tirimusu or Italian cheesecake. We were denied all three after paying $400 for dinner which included a generous tip!
We were told to go to a different room for coffee and dessert and was told we had to wait at least an hour!
We will never step foot in your restaurant ever again!

The food and service were above normal as it has been on previous visits. It would have been nice if the waiter introduced himself by name, Also, a gentleman, presumably the owner, gave preference to certain tables and totally ignored others, including ours. This made us feel ill at ease and not wanted.

Giovanni's is a really lovely old school Italian restaurant with consistently great food. No one will rush you through your meal and Giovanni will stop by your table to make sure everything is to your liking. The atmosphere is relaxed and conducive to conversation.

I took my wife here for a birthday dinner and not only did she absolutely love the food and service, but I myself was very impressed with the whole experience that evening. It started with our waiter George, he is fantastic. Very friendly and attentive . Then the wine, excellent ! Now the steak.... Absolutely one of the best I ever had. I ordered the 48oz Long Bone for myself and ate every bit. They were a bit shocked since that is really a steak for two. My wife had the NY Strip and absolutely loved it and also ate it all ! I highly recommend The Waters Edge at Giovanni's for that special occasion or just a great meal with great service.
