My colleague and I went here on our last day of the visit to Greenwood area and were most impressed by the food and drink selections. Yes, everything was pricey, but, for the most part, worth it. Especially, when it was paid out our expense account. My colleague is a vegetarian and the staff did everything possible to meet his... More

Giardina's is located in the Alluvian Hotel in downtown Greenwood. I've generally eaten in the bar and have enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. My most recent trip found my wife and I there for drinks on a couple of occasions and for a light bite one afternoon. We enjoyed the onion rings, fried avocados, catfish cakes and oysters with...

First experience here was great ( 5 years ago). This time they were too busy to be attentive (reservation was made a month prior to visit). The food was fine but the service severely lacking. No apologies given in spite of no water refills, bread provided after meal completed, had to request dessert menus for known birthday celebration, no coffee... More

Thanks Queen for being the BEST waitress in MS! I ordered the scallops this time and they were excellent! The Ribeye is still my favorite and I'm so thankful that my husband orders it every time and is willing to share!

I love Giardina's! The restaurant has a metropolitan feel in the Delta. The Chefs are Viking trained and deliver the best top notch food. The bartenders are also wonderful making sure you are welcomed and at home. I love the calamari with a nice wine.

Where to get dinner when you are in the middle of the state of Mississippi? The decision was made to travel west for about a 30 minute drive. We were greeted warmly when entering the restaurant on a Saturday evening around 7:30-8:00. Thankfully, we were told we could get a table without a reservation. The bar right next door made... More

This place is attached to the Alluvian Hotel. There is a separate bar and restaurant area. Both looked unique and high class. While exploring our seating options, we learned we couldn't sit on the restaurant side which housed neat prohibition-style booths, as we only wanted drinks not food. (Insert ironic pun here). So we mosied back to the bar side.... More

Ordered a "jumbo shrimp on angel pasta" for $24.00. No bread, no salad, no soup. Any of these side items would be another $6 or $8. Volume of food was very small. 5 "jumbo" shrimps at most were medium size. Veins were not completely removed and had strong muddy taste. This dish should be a Italian dish. But no typical... More
