This restaurant has a nice atmosphere, right on the bay in Fort Walton Beach and good service. We went for the Sunday Buffet and I was not impressed. Maybe I went for the wrong dishes, but some were not refilled very quickly and others were...just ok. I know a Buffet is not quit like cooking per order, a little more challenging but even still this called short.I have to admit I probably would not do the buffet again.More

My wife had the sea bass which was good, I had eggplant parm which was average, it was ladies night so the drinks were cheap, overall the prices seemed pretty high for the quality. I had a much better meal at Olive Garden.

By the photos on the website it looked like a nice modern place, with an amazing buffet... The buffet is $27 pre person, the dishes are not identified, bacon not cooked, pizza dough so tough we couldn't cut it with our knives, nothing we really...liked, there is salad in the buffet but you have to ask for the dressing, I gave two stars because the service was good, but every five minutes somebody was asking us if we liked it.... there are so many good restaurants in Destin and Ft Walton, we had to fall on that oneMore

Had dinner for 5 and it was fabulous! They are always open to finding the right nook, outdoor, or romantic table for your group! Food is always fantastic and service is top-notch! Last summer they hosted my 160+ person retirement party on their back lawn...and it was flawless too! 50% Italian and I highly recommend their dishes! Even their pizza is wonderful!More

We went to Giovanni's One89 for our anniversary. The prime rib special was well worth the price at $27. The meat was very smoky and tender. The waiter was attentive and friendly. He was sweet to bring us dessert on the house.

We had a later arrival with no food, road trip exhaustion & eager kids wanting to hit the beach we dialed up Giovanni’s for the first time & it won’t be the last! We chose to carryout pizzas for 17. We got the usual cheese...for the kids, a beef (not your usual beef, it was flavored more like a lasagna & delish) & a few meat lovers! For sure will be back! Awesome unique pizza!More

We went on Wednesday for their Prime Rib special- It was nothing special- advertised as 14oz but my portion was approx. 6 oz of fat and 8 oz of beef. They had 4-5 flavors of gelato listed for dessert but only had 1 flavor that...was available. We were pretty disappointed over all.More

From the beginning to the final day of wedding planning Jamie Leblanc was nothing short of amazing, helpful and prompt with every question I had, making sure I didn’t forget anything and most importantly any last minute changes that needed to be made. I started...wedding planning a little over a year before the wedding and Jamie was on top of it all from the absolute beginning being that we were planning our wedding from a far. The day before our wedding while watching the weather we decided to move the ceremony indoors after watching the weather which they had no problem accommodating for us but we would continue to keep the ceremony outdoors. An hour before I was to walk down the aisle the wind started to pick and Jamie and her team did not even hesitate to run down to the area where they had chairs set up at tables too bring them to a covered area just Incase the rain started earlier then the radar was showing. Luckily for us the rain did hold off until after the ceremony was over. The timeline Jamie had put together for food was on time and never late from the horderves all the way to the dinner buffet. The food that was served was absolutely amazing and nothing less then what we hoped for. Jamie and her team made sure every single guest had everything they needed and were on top of everything the entire night. We can not begin to thank Jamie and her team for making sure our wedding night was nothing short of amazing and everything we ever hoped for it to be! If you are searching for a venue for a wedding or any event I highly received Giovanni’s One89.More
