I was blown away! Best steak I've ever had. Our server told us they only serve prime and all steaks are cut in-house. It was very busy and that added to the charm. Loved the new decor and the white table cloths give the dining room a rich

Let me list the good first...The wait person was wonderful. She was very friendly and helpful. Also, the salad made at the table was very good.
Now, the not so good. Had reservations on a very busy night. Very busy and crowded that night

Only go if you like overpriced, mediocre food and being abused by the wait staff! At our table of 4, when the assistant to our waiter brought our food out, a couple of itmes were missing. When we relayed this to her, she threw her

After reading reviews, I would not have chosen this place for dinner. I was invited to an anniversary party so there was no choice. The ribeye was fabulous!! Asparagus prepared perfectly! Potatoes excellent! Cocktail? Perfect old

The place tries to be a Mini-Manny's and completely misses the mark. It's like shooting a free throw and not hitting any rim. Runny creamed spinach, inedible clams, so-so steak, servers with a lame I-got-attitude tired game and limp expensive steaks. The playing card/ acoustical tile ceiling speaks to them just not getting it. No charm, no service, and no flavor. Why can't Wayzata get some decent food?

Diehard Manny's fan, told by numerous to try Gianni's. Man is this place overrated. Went on a Monday night, dining room was 1/3 full. Server was invisible and the "house specialty" Bone in Filet was a complete joke. Ordered it med. rare, came out burnt and medium, all this for $42. Table side salad is overrated. Tried to complain to the hostess but she was too busy clearing tables. For what is considered an upscale restaurant in an upscale area of town this place was sure a disappointment. The $200 bill didn't ease the pain any either. For this kind of quality and service you're better off going to Outback.

This place is too overrated. The sirloin steak was tough and too well done and our prime rib was 1/2 fat. The salad was average - nothing spectacular. Certainly not worth the price. The cheese potatoes were excellent

Typical of a restaurant of this type: Nice decor, a bit pricey and a gimmick here and there. The salad thing is a gimmick but hey, aren't the gimmicks part of the fun?

Oh and the magician...it's a nice touch. She is very entertaining, witty, clever and excellent. I'd go back just to see her work again.

What a disappointment. We tried to order 3 different wines at the bar, all of which the bartender was unfamiliar with, only to be told they were out of all of them. We gave up. The salad idea is just goofy. My steak was good, but the crab legs had something seriously 'off' about them - possibly old? I couldn't eat them. My friend was unable to eat his steak because of the gristle. All of this for $250! Oh, and Gianni's: get rid of that magician.

Liked the atmosphere; that combined with the downtown Wayzata location made this a nice, romantic dining experience. The salad tossed at our table was an unexpected pleasure. Its ingredients were very fresh, ranging from anchovies to shrimp to veggies. But our main courses were severely overpriced. For a dinner tatalling over $100, it was nothing to rave about. And our waitress was too chatty about her personal life. Overall, "good" dining at the price of "great" dining.

A steak full of gristle, green beans swimming in soy sauce and a server able to become invisible...All this for only $29.95 per entree! You say you want more? How about 2.5 ounces of mediocre wine for $8.00? O.K....still more: How about a "magician" who visits tables and hustles customers for tips? (She was loud and obnoxious; we thought she was a customer and asked to be moved to a different table). Never again...There many better ways to spend $60.00 per person for dinner.
