We have been in this restaurant many times before. We always eat the same dish and we have ordered again. Service was horrible, food was tasteless, service was horrible since we stepped in. Hostess was rude and with flip-flops. We all felt we had dinner on cheesecake. Well I am sure service is better there.

My husband and I were in town for a getaway and made reservations. When we got to Giannis we waited about 20 mins to sit by the pool. We LOVED our experience ! Everything was amazing! We are definitely considering staying there the next time we are in town to really see the entire mansion, thanks to our amazing waiter, Johnny!

Been reading comments about a long wait time even though they already had reservations so we came a little prepared. We also made reservations but for some reason it didn’t appear on their system. It wasn’t a busy night so we got some seats after 10-15 mins but we opted to wait for a table by the pool. I mean you are paying for the view might as well wait. That took about an hour. We did the Spice dinner. Regular dinner menu I thought was limited. Overall, it was okay. Food was mediocre. For a 22% auto gratuity, you’ll expect some wow service. Although, they didn’t charge for a resort/local tax that you will usually find if you dine in around Ocean Drive.

The place is beautiful, but the staff requires better training. Waiter said he would bring bread and it only came after the appetizer was served. Also the assistant waiter did not know who ordered what when he brought the main dishes. Flavors were good. No A/C, just fans.

Really enjoyed the whole experience. From the check in to dessert the well trained staff were pleasant and consistent. The food was really delicious. The best part was the ambience. This is a beautiful place to enjoy with a loved one or with the whole family. While a bit pricey I thought it was worth it.

Had to wait 1h30 for a table despite our booking. Offered to wait in a small room with 20 people « the bar ». Food was cold. People were dressed poorly. Terrible experience.

The most iconic place on Ocean Drive, gorgeous mansion, a must see and you can dine @ Gianni’s restaurant, it is just amazing. Chef Valter Mancini is a real Italian, therefore the dishes are pretty authentic in their simplicity yet tasteful. This time we went for a Miami Spice Dinner.

We made a reservation for a Sunday evening dinner. There is no ac.... After reviewing the regular menu we asked about the Miami spice and we were told that it only applies to four people at the table, that was mentioned on the menu at the premise but nowhere to be found online so three people from our group had to order from the regular menu. the service tax is 22% and the service was not up to par for the prices they are charging.We did take advantage of being able to walk into the famous mansion and take pictures, that was probably the best part of the evening. The valet service it’s $30. We have been participating at many Miami spice menu participating restaurants and there are a lot more restaurants with better menus and better service. there is room for a lot of improvement at this location. It was for us a one time visit. Unfortunately the more touristy the area the further away from good service.

Beautiful restaurant! Got sat right away on a Saturday night although it did take the server a bit to get to us. The food was ok, but I would return due to the beautiful venue. Everyone was friendly and I got some great pictures.

Service was spectacular. Staff was very attentive whilst also not making us feel rushed.
The food was amazing with the appetizer and entree leaving us no room for dessert.
Wine list was great too; we went for the LPR.

Great experience and the place just feels a bit magical.

Would definitely recommend going for a special occasion as it is quite expensive but worth it.

The service was terrible and very unfriendly. We came for our 20th anniversary and had that noted on our reservation. Not one staff member acknowledged it. Any questions we had about food were answered very rudely. They have a mandatory 23 percent service which explains why there is no motivation for servers to be helpful. I was not happy paying it to poor service.

The value is in the experience and the ambiance. The food was slightly better than average. The vegetables were prepared great. Stay away from the squash blossoms which were mostly fried mozzarella. Overall, we enjoyed the experience.

The place is beautiful, but obscenely expensive. It would still be ok if the portions were normal. However, the potions are so small that a child would leave hungry. My husband ordered lamb chops for $47. He was served one tiny chop that looked like a lollipop. Drinks are $25 each and even at the bar include 22% service charge. There are other beautiful restaurants nearby like The Forge, that are reasonable and serve normal size portions.

So let’s talk about this place...really pretty place and a good experience. The food was okay — we went for Miami Spice and had to ask for the menus because they didn’t give them to anyone since there were so many tourists. The service was mediocre at best but that didn’t really bother us too much. They ran out of bread (how does that even happen so they gave us toast...legit just toast), the veal and the vanilla gelato ended up being strawberry ice cream and they didn’t even tell us. They we’re missing just random things which you just don’t expect. The server never even introduced himself, and they include the 22% service charge — it’s the beach, we get it but 22% automatically? The food was okay in the end, our burrata app was good but then my gnocchi bolognese was better than the sea bass my husband got. All in all, you’re going for the name.
