Girasole- Edgy and Superior.. and NOT in a Casino – Girasole... Definitely not in a casino and because of this, it makes this place even more incredibly wonderful. My husband and I had the joy of eating there this weekend and I was blown away by every aspect of this establishment. The food quality is superior, the service is delightful, and the decor is very edgy. This place is a gem and I can't wait to dine with them on our next visit. The have a brick oven pizza in the back of the restaurant and the pizza's are really nice, thin, cracker like, just well executed. I can't say enough about this place. Make a reservation and plan to have an enchanting evening.
Attention Gordon Ramsay and FOX! – There is a restaurant that is giving Hell?s Kitchen a run for its money! I thought that you ought to know that this restaurant is totally ripping off your idea by providing bottom-of-the-barrel service to its patrons. However, unlike your show where the potential diners have some idea that a bad meal awaits, the patrons of Girasole are unsuspecting pawns.
In sum, we waited 2+ hours to finally receive our entrees from a surly waiter who couldn?t even provide us with bread, water refills, or updates on what was happening in the kitchen. It was the closest that I ever came to being invisible (and that?s hard for a pregnant lady to do). We eventually heard about the kitchen delays from the other tables around us who were also fed up with their service as well. The wise owners had agreed to seat two huge parties on a Saturday night and still promised to serve those of us who made reservations in advance. It?s really no slight against Girasole that a restaurant its size can?t accommodate 15- and 22-person parties at one time. I don?t really know of a restaurant its size that could. The point is that they tried to serve these large parties and maintain normalcy for the remaining tables in the restaurant. Obviously, they failed. The situation would have been bearable if our waiter had the insight and brains to get a little creative with his tables (refer to the ideas of refilling water and providing bread mentioned above). This isn?t rocket science, but it sure felt that way at Girasole. After we told our waiter at 10:45 that we were going to leave if we didn?t see an entree in 20 mins, we finally received our food at 11:00 pm. It was good food, so I have to give kudos in that regard. Unfortunately, good food does not encompass the whole restaurant experience. And, for those Hell?s Kitchen viewers?we were never even told what team we were on! What?s the fun in that??
Best kept secret in AC – I have been coming here for years. If you aren't being comp'd by the casino, this is the only place in town I would consider eating. As good as any Italian restaurant in NYC.
