We recently had our wedding there. It was absolutely amazing. Its been a few weeks but all the guests are still calling us and saying what an amazing experiense everyone had. The space is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is very helpful, friendly and well trained. Food is well prepared and delicious. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is great. Joe the manager that was assisting us with all the preparations is always available and ready to help. We got absolutely everything we were promissed and more. We would deff. recomend this place for any type of event it will be a memorable experiense.. Thank You Giando's !!!!

We just had the best wedding ever at Giando’s! Here’s the deal: The people were the best ever! Joe Leone was amazing. Diana – amazing. The captains, chef, wait staff – everyone was beyond amazing. The bartender’s were tremendous. Everyone commented on how over the top they all were. My 82 year old mother said: “They made me feel like I was their grandmother”! The food was beyond great! The cocktail hour was the highest quality – perfectly planned… And finally the views were breathtaking! Joe Leone, Miguel, Carmen, Alex, Victor and everyone else created a memory that we will all never forget, but most importantly my daughter will never forget.. That good!

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. RUDE waiter and host View of the city is decent but at night the glare from the disgusting chandeliers ruins it. Ugly restaurant overall, unless you like the look of tacky reception halls. Ice cream desert 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.

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.
