Opting for appetizers instead of a full meal, I chose the Salmon Carpaccio to start. Lovely combination of two kinds of salmon....a stack of diced salmon in the center, surrounded by thinly sliced salmon carpaccio, finished with diced red onion, cream cheese, capers and toast points. Also nice selection of breads served with soft butter. Second course I chose was... More

I was overcharged for drinks. I was disrespected when I returned a dish. The maître de told me the drink price was not incorrect as it was the charge on the new menu that had not been introduced. The offer of a free dinner drink did not make up for a ruined holiday.

My only minor complaint is when I need to listen to nearby conversations because of proximity. Granted, it was New Years' Eve, and the restaurant was lively, but I prefer a bit more 'space'.

I was in a party of four ladies for a holiday lunch at Giovanni's. We had a beautiful table in the main dining room. The tables are very nicely spaced so that you can enjoy your conversation. The restaurant has been remodeled since I was last a visitor, it is more modern but definitely an upscale, formal feeling. I had... More

We have dined at this restaurant several times and each time has been spectacular. Upon arrival you will notice that it is located it in a office building, but once inside you feel miles away. The decor and the staff makes you feel comfortable and welcome. The dishes are elegant and delicious. We live two hours away so we make... More

I had the opportunity to go here as part as a dinner for work. A place that is delicious! I will say, getting there was a bit of a challenge as you can see the sign from the street, however, the restaurant is in some awkward looking old building that you wouldn't expect a higher end restaurant in Beechwood.

Odd fancy restaurant in the bottom of an office building. Fine dining but just an odd mix of stuff here...menu had No chicken. I expected various options for chicken in a classic Italian restaurant. Zero. Ended up with a short rib which is not what I wanted but the only thing I could find on an odd menu mix. Short... More

This was my first time to Giovanni's, and I was not disappointed. It was for a business dinner, and everyone could not say enough good things. The building in which it is located is not very appealing, but don't let that dissuade you. The wine list was fabulous, with everything from a reasonably priced wines to special occasion selections. The... More

Celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday on a Tuesday evening at Giovanni's. This is by far the best restaurant for special occasions in Northeast Ohio. The food was fantastic. Starting with the wine and drinks which just tasted better to the main courses, which were prepared to perfection, this was a special meal. I had a filet which was cooked perfectly with... More

We were at Giovanni's recently to celebrate a special occasion. Our first time at Giovanni's. The homemade breadsticks on the table were delish! Food and service were impeccable. We started with their version of Capresse salad, it was divine. We ordered other appetizers, not remembering the title, but, beef tartar, and oysters, all of which were excellent. I had salmon...
