I have been dining regularly at Gio for the past year and a half, since moving to the city. This restaurant is a gem not to be overlooked. The menu is creative, contemporary, fresh and tasty. The wine list has something for everyone, with wines by the glass at a reasonable price. The service is impeccable - the staff goes above and beyond to provide a full dining experience for an evening, rather than the in/out of other places. Sit and savour at Gio. And definitely try one of their martinis.

outstanding combinations of flavours, beautifully prepared menu that articulates the various ingredients. The crabmeat appetizer with crabmeat, taco shell, pesto, lemon/orange plus other flavours was exquisite. The setting and ambiance are business casual, ie not stuffy but gracious.

Our service by S was perfunctory and breezy. This may have been a one off however as we saw other wait staff more engaged with customers. A suggestion would be for staff to identify the ingredients on the plates as they are served. This practice is very typical in other restaurants serving excellent food. It would round out the dining experience.

This is a great place to share a very good meal -- with the best service by professional and knowledgeable servers. I went with my family for the first time 3 years ago and had to take my friend back there during this past trip. We enjoyed the ambiance and food perfectly. This place even makes creative and yummy mocktails. :)

Went to Gio for a drink last week (best cocktails in the city) and ended up staying for a full dinner. The new menu changes are fantastic and the service was as always, impeccable!

Gio has changed their menu and it is fantastic. A few of the older favorites like the Elk remain but there are some delicious new choices. I had the Beef Carpaccio, the duck and lobster ( a bit of a strange mix) pasta and the olive oil and passion fruit desert. Outstanding.
