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

Myself and two good friends and associates decided a steakhouse was a good idea after a day at the Ryder Cup. Well we were so impressed. Started right from the second we walked in the door and seated 30 mins before our reservation was set. The owner gave us spectacular recommendations and we took them all. What a dinner. At... More

It looks like this place has a lot of admirers, but I know at least four who would disagree. We went without reservation and were given choice of table. So far, so good. Then the problems started: A waitress barking orders to us and very anxious to keep pouring wine in the glaces. We have to ask for bread, even... More

We celebrated our daughter's birthday at this excellent Wayzata restaurant. The spun salads were greatly enjoyed by all five of us since they are made-to-order at table side. The NY strip, lamb and pork chop entrees were all outstanding. The hash browns stuffed with sour cream and cheese were mouthwatering, and the cream corn and green beans were just as... More

Ruth's Chris or even Pittsburgh Blue were better then this. I made a better steak for 6 people for half the price of my one steak from Costco on my own grill. My steak a fillet 9 oz was ordered medium and was served rare. They put it on longer and it still was bright red...ugh is it to much... More
