Gio, in the lovely Prince George hotel, is a winner! The atmosphere is warm and lively, the staff is attentive and friendly. The menu offers some uncommon dishes: I had elk, which was done perfectly. I would dine at Gio in any city anywhere.

I ate here a couple of times as I was running an event at the Prince George. Food is really great. They accommodated vegan, vegetarian and gluten free with no issues. Food was delicious and service was first rate.

From entering the restaurant, to the attention and hospitality of the staff, along with the quality of the food, this is a must visit place. Not crowded, very low key, yet enough to enjoy a meal, regardless you are coming as a couple, friends, or having a business lunch!!!

I was not overly hungry so ordered a couple of starters being the beef short rib, the confit carrot and the foie gras....my beef... More

After reading so many excellent reviews of Gio I was really looking forward to a fantastic meal. I did have a very good meal and the service was terrific. Perhaps a Tuesday night is the head chef's day off. I was disappointed that so many of the items reviewed weren't on the menu. No specials, no gnocchi, no capellini, no... More

Gio is a spot to go if you're looking for creative and delicious food in the city. Not for someone on a budget, but absolutely worth the splurge. Cocktails are unique and very tasty, great wine selection. From starter to dessert, the food is always impressive. The restaurant was busy but still quiet and intimate. Our server was hilarious and... More
