Celebrated my father's 70th birthday with family. Nothing short of perfection each time we dine here!
Service: The Giumarello brothers have a huge staff. Hostesses are organized, professional looking and pleasant. The all-male waitstaff are second to none. Knowledgeable, providing the perfect amount of attention, efficient. Our glasses were always full, plates cleared with perfect timing. Our waiter was excellent, not overbearing, and provided detailed info when we made inquiries regarding a family member's nut allergies (there was no guessing). Bonus: manager (owner?) stops by each table once to assure quality experience. No chit-chat, just a simple check. Perfect!
The food: Always excellent! How often can you say that everyone was very happy with their meals? We had everything from the Sam's Thickcut Filet (cooked to order) to Pistacio Encrusted MahiMahi to a G Burger with Gruyere. There were nine of us in all. Notable were the spicy calamari appetizer, shrimp and crab caesar salad (enough for two and which they automatically split it onto 2 dishes), and filets. Dessert was a birthday cake of Tiramisu (candles lit and ready to go) made fresh and arriving at the table without prompting, immediately after coffee was served.
Decor: This restaurant has been around for a while and yet the decor is still lovely and kept up-to-date. It is always nice to be able to sit at a large round table when with a group. The lighting in our room was just slightly too dark for some of us, but with the beautiful fireplace in the room the lighting certainly did not detract.
Price: Expensive, but worth every single penny! 9 entrees, 2 appetizers, 2-3 soups, 2 specialty salads (regular salads do come with most meals but we had to try the caesars!), a martini, 2 bottles of wine, a birthday cake, 5 specialty coffees. With tip $644.
Other restaurants would do well to study Giumarello's. In all aspects, the owners have maintained the highest of standards. Kudos!
