Very good service and food prep. Reminiscent of old school restaurants. The food was served with style and good timing of the appetizers then the entrees. I can't anything bad about the favor seasonings or the temperature of the dood qe ordered. The wine and cocktail list was extensive as well as served with class. I will good back when... More

We have been to Gianni's, in Wayzata, several times, and have had mixed responses - particularly around their bar scene. This time, however, we went to have a quiet dinner for my birthday and use the $25.00 birthday bucks they sent me. The restaurant atmosphere was pleasant; warm lighting and kindly greeted. I would suggest their hostesses look more professional... More

With a reservation a week in advance we were seated in the back corner. The waiter came two times and asked us to get up and move away from the table so he could reach the wine. We were then move to another table. The waiter then came to that side and we had to wait for him to remove... More

I’ve reviewed this restaurant before but a recent visit prompts a new review. We were there for a birthday celebration. I ordered seafood special which was sea bass with shrimp and mussels in a red tomato sauce. It was quite good but pricey at $40.00. My advice – don’t order a seafood dish in the middle of Minnesota at a... More

I was looking for a great steakhouse for a client meeting and Gianni's exceeded all expectations. It's located in a cute village area, the restaurant is beautifully appointed, the food is great, and the service is very attentive. The filet mignon is terrific! Others at our table enjoyed other steaks or seafood, and we shared family-style side dishes. I'm still... More

I went with my family for restaurant week. The deal included a small filet, their house salad, mashed potatoes and chocolate cake. I thought both the steak and the salad were very good. I did not like the chocolate cake as it had an almost smokey flavor to it. I am not sure I would pay their full menu prices.... More

Recommended by locals and it was well worth the visit. Ordered the fillet mignon and it was fantastic. Others in our party ordered the Crab Louie salad and the scallops dish and all were very pleased with their dinners. The grilled shrimp appetizer was amazing!

The meat is extremely good. Really great quality. Also really expensive. Service is great. Neighborhood is really beautiful. Meat prices are high and you need to order the sides separately. Sides are in big portions so you will can share them.

We had a nice dinner at Gianni's but it wasn't the best steakhouse we've been to. My wife had the foie gras starter which was good but small. I had the French onion soup which was also good. We decided to share the 16 oz. prime NY strip and it was a nice piece of meat and cooked exactly as... More

Smallish place across from the lake; fairly crowded dining, high noise level. Food good, as was service, but expensive (drinks too) - though on par with other local steakhouses ($12 for a half glass of wine; a la carte small filet of beef in the $40's, sides $12 or so). I ate dinner during winter, and also attended a political... More
