Giovanni's was recommended by the staff at the local Marriott while traveling on business. The meal and service was superb. From the appetizers thru dessert, every offering was a true dining experience and well worth the high end price. Highly recommend.

We have loved this place for years. It has had its ups and downs, but now it is really up! The food is creative, the staff is always attentive, and the dining experience is surely one of the best in Cleveland. If you haven't been there for a while, try it again. It is superb.

As our first time there, we didn't know what to order, but the waiter was immensely helpful in detailing the menu, multiple times, and giving us plenty of time. We may have spent 30-45 minutes trying to determine what to order, which apparently was no problem. He definitely made two young college kids feel really comfortable in a more upscale restaurant. The service was great, and the food really awesome too. Not something that made me think I had never eaten real food, but definitely something to write home about. 10/12/2011

20 of us had dinner last evening,September 27, 2013. We had a private room and were served cocktails, appetizers and then dinner. The staff, headed by Pierre, could not be more attentave. The food, service and ambiance was excellant. All of our group was delighted. It was truly a great evening. Thank you Giovanni's.

We came to the area on business from the west coast, and had dinner for 4 last night. The roast pork chop was excellent, but the cioppino was very poor. The seafood was over-cooked, and the sauce was bland and flavorless. I usually love cioppino, but I was extremely disappointed. And considering the price, it was even more of a disappointment.

WOW, and I mean wow was my experience here perfect. Every aspect of the atmosphere, decor and service right down to bussing was on point. We were seated promptly but the restaurant wasn't all that crowded when we arrived at 8:00PM on a Thursday night. Dress code is definitely business casual/formal and includes a trendier/modern bar/wine cellar/lounge and business dining section. This restaurant is very ethnic Italian in theme and the owner went out of his way to make sure that everything was taken care of at our table.The menu here is beyond diverse and creative. In fact, I was rather impressed by the menu itself as many of the items appealed to me and featured highly unique choices. I ordered the Seared Verlasso Salmon (fennel, spinach, grapes, white beans, mustard-lemon broth) of which was aesthetically delightful! The way that this dish was crafted blew my mind for a restaurant outside of Cleveland. A+ Taste was fresh, flavorful and featured quality ingredients. I would recommend this restaurant for family gatherings and business meetings more specifically. It's also the perfect location for an anniversary dinner or date night. I received a very intimate vibe from this location and was made to feel as if I were at home. My experience here was very refreshing and I left feeling highly satisfied.

Dined here on Valentines Day. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. The server, Jackie, was short of rolling her eyes at us. I do not know why. We were seated at the bar lounge and not the dining room. I asked why and Jackie rudely barked that when I made reservation I did not specify I wanted to be in the dining room. I guess I should have specified. We tried to order appetizers, she would not take our order because she wanted to come back and take "the whole order" at one time. My husband ordered filet medium-well, repeating himself 3 times, she still brought medium-rare. Aside from having the worst dining experience ever, the food was sub-par. As we were exiting the hostess was laughing at the manager, Pier, with the coat check person. How inappropriate. I cannot believe a server would allow herself to be SO rude to guests. The attitude was unbelievable.

Called regarding dress code and was rudely asked what I was wearing. When I said jeans, shirt and shoes, she said I could eat in the bar. Not sure why jeans are unacceptable especially if I was wearing a nice blouse and shoes - my money spends the same. It wouldn't have been so reprehensible if she wasn't so rude and pretentious.
