not worth it – 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
lighten up and have some fun – 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.
Abysmal – 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.
Above average, but overpriced. – 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.
Never Again – 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.
