Came with 70+ member tour group for dinner after a bus tour; food was excellent although I found it somewhat amusing that appetizers varied from table to table. Salad, pasta, main course all delightful and serving portion adequate. And served at a good temperature despite the crowd. Sunset over the Manhattan skyline was beautiful and capped an wonderful day's event.

My sister's surprise birthday dinner was held here and it was the best choice! From the moment we pulled in to the driveway, we were warmly greeted and escorted to our table after they offered to take our coats! This exceptional service was extended to all of our 20 guests. We had 3 servers who were at our elbows volunteering... More

I recently was invited for dinner, as part of a holiday celebration, to this well known restaurant. First, it looks like a big banquet hall, which it seems to be, and not as an intimate water side restaurant. The restaurant on the main floor has floor to ceiling windows on the water side and the view is amazing. The dinner... More

I attended a wedding reception here during lunch time. I have always heard about this place on various wedding sites. When I arrived the ambiance was beautiful and the view breathtaking...but that is where it ended for me. The wait staff was rude and not very attentive to us. The food was not that great at all. My salad was... More

We loved the view of the Williamsburg Bridge. Loved the service. The presentation of our lunch was lovely. The ambience is beautiful. We highly recommend the $25 luncheon special. It consists of a 3-course luncheon: salad or soup, main course & dessert. And the portions were generous. It's easy to get there by subway. We were coming from the WTC;... More

My students had their prom at Giando on the Water. What a wonderful experience. From the waitstaff, to the mouth watering food every detail was perfect! If you are having a formal function, check this place out.

Giandos is a nice tucked away restaurant in Brooklyn. Classic vibe for an Italian resturaunt but makes you feel very elegant. One of the best resturaunt views of NYC from Brooklyn iverlookimg manhattan. This is where i proposed to my wife. Always make a reservation before coming as there are not many tables. It makes the place cozy. The food... More

We went to Giando to celebrate my father in law's 70th birthday and overall we had a great time. Everyone was very nice and professional. Waiters came by pretty often and always very attentive to everything we needed. The food was good but pricey. We had the $50 prefix menu but still managed to spend over $1000 for a party... More

If your looking for great food with the best view of Manhatten, than Giandos is is the place for you. Located in the old Brooklyn navy yard and under the Williamsburg bridge you are afforded a vista window which shows Manhattan from up town to the Brooklyn bridge on the east river. The food is wonderful with either a fixed... More
