The food was just okay. The swordfish was dry, the pasta overcooked. Our server Erin was fabulous!

The food was amazing. I had the lobster ravioli in a pink cream sauce. To die for!!! My husband had the grilled steak tips (cooked to perfection) with incredible brussel sprouts nice and crispy. The Pinot noir was Firesteen , I believe , was perfect and my husbands godfather was perfect. Definitely going back!!

This was my first visit to Giardino's and although I loved the atmosphere and the bar area, I wasn't a huge fan of the food. And the service was just mediocre. I will try again as maybe I visited on an "off" night.

I loved this restaurant but honestly was disappointed yesterday. I had requested outside seating in my reservation but when I arrived, I was told that area was being used.

I went specifically for the clam strip special that was on the online menu only to be told it was not available.

I also wanted info on holding my 60th birthday there and it was kind of difficult to get answers but the chef did come out and answered my questions.

This was my first outing out in ages and I invited my friend...I was kind of embarrassed we had to ask the hostess if there were any specials for the day since the clams was not available....

My friend suggested I not have my party there....sigh.

Hopefully next time it will be better.

Have been there several times before, both inside and out. Tonight we were inside and had Alice as our server. She was delightful, very engaging, everything was correct, delicious, drinks, apps and entrees. Didn't stay for dessert.

The restaurant was not busy and our waitress Cheryl was amazing and on top of things. When we first sat down the two gentlemen dropped off a stack of plates napkins and utensils. They did not disperse them to each person. We had to pass around our own plates. They were friendly but lacked a bit attention to detail.

Also this was our fourth visit to this restaurant. The food and drinks have been hands down awesome. I felt this time the steak tips were chewy and the risotto over salted. The appetizers are amazing along with the rest of our meal.

These are just a few observations. Not complaining. Attention to detail is a bit off.

Thank you !

Food was delicious! My husband and I had the lobster ravioli and my daughter loved the chicken, broccoli and ziti. My son's steak was over-cooked but it was too late to send it back! He said the flavor was still great!

First time out since the beginning of COVID-19. Every thing was great social distancing,masks and plexiglass barriers all in place and being used.
The food and service were great. I’ll recommend this place to anyone who wants to go out to a nice restaurant.
My only problem was not getting Open Table points and credit.
