Great view, service and food average. – I have ate at this place three times. On mothers day 2010 I took my mother and other family members here and we had a great time but the pre-fix menu wasnt worth the money in my opinion. The last time I visited the restuarant I had a table away from the window (and lets be honest, the view is the best thing about the restuarant) even though there were two available tables and they claimed they were "reserved" when it was obvious they werent because nobody came to eat there the 1.5 hours i spent at the restaurant. The food was average and the wait staff were okay. I will return again but not for the dining experience but for the great view of NYC.
never again – 30 minute wait even though we had reservations and were on time (not crowded at all by the way). Salad was drenched in oil, literally salad soup. Food was nothing to rave about and overpriced. Not an overly nice waiter and host View of the city is decent but at night the glare from the chandeliers ruins it. Ugly restaurant overall, unless you like the look of tacky reception halls. Ice cream dessert was a frozen lump dumped from a kiddie cup. And to top it all off the waiter tacked on a 20% gratuity on a two person meal.
Never ever – If you wish to hold your or organize someone else?s wedding ceremony and at the same time having maitre d called Luis going after your wife, Giando On the Water is the perfect place to go!!!
This happened to me on September 6th, 2008. I found this guy which should have taken care of people in the patio room downstairs, taking care of my slightly intoxicated wife upstairs and pouring more champagne into her sitting next to her with only one kind of intentions.
This kind of behavior is extremely UNPROFFESIONAL for anyone trying to run this kind of business. It is a shame that people like him are employed in this property.
I will NEVER come here again and NEVER recommend this place to anyone. You do better staying out of this property. You will save yourself from big headaches.
Best Place on Earth – I am writing to say how happy my husband and myself were to have our Wedding at Giando's. It was everything we wanted and more. We wanted for nothing and were treated like a King and Queen. The people who we delt with for our Wedding were real people down to earth and nothing we beyond them doing for us. We had the night of our lives and the best part is we can go to the restaurant and enjoy the place as "Our Place" and we have many times and will in time to come. I thank Ellen and Alex for being so wonderful to us and all our guests. We knew when we walked in to see the place that this was the place for us...
Giando on the Water - best view and more – Giando is a special place that combines a great restaurant with excellent catering hall also. This would be a great place to get married (we did!) Michael and Alex are top notch hosts. The food is excellent - italian dishes are authentic and generous. This is not a casual place but importantly not snobbish either. regular people will feel comfortable here. I will agree with previous review that sometimes the service can be lacking but not usually. All in all it is an excellent choice for a special dinner out with the absolute best view of the skyline - cannot be beat. prices are reasonable for what you are getting. Very Romantic too.
Worth checking out – A little pricey, but the food is very good. Service can leave a little to be desired at times. Can't beat the view though.
