Everything from the service, ambiance and food were incredible!
What a treat to find the Bistro Giovanni! Menu was diverse and not over whelming. Lots to chose from! Service was spot on. Looking forward to returning
Giovanni's was great food was excellent, ambiance was just right. Service was excellent. Location is wonderful, easy parking. Very warm surrounding. Great wine selection I recommend this location.
We love this place the food the service the ambiance are all top of the line. I had the Halibut and my wife had Veal piccata and mom the Veal T bone it’s what you hope for when you you go out to eat. And did I mention the wine oh yes . Go , treat yourself
Great place food good but not outstanding.
On a cool foggy night, we were sat at a two top near the front entrance door. While there is a screen that blocks the entrance, each time the double door opened cold air came rushing in.
Service was very attentive. My husband’s dish- mixed seafood linguine screen was very good. My dish, a special of the night, Halibut with lemon garlic and capers, tasted as if it was previously frozen , rubbery and bland.
I would not rush back to this restaurant.
We love coming here, it’s our number 1 choice to dine in Carmel!
The is a charming restaurant with wonderful food. I would definitely recommend it.
Carmel's Bistro Giovanni is our most favorite Carmel restaurant! We have been going to it since its opening and it never fails to be just the best. The food is always delicious, the staff fabulous and of course the owner and his daughter are outstanding in every way...friendly, gracious and so intent of making the experience at their lovely restaurant just perfect. We always recommend Carmel's Bistro Giovanni to out of town guests, as well as our local friends. Every dining experience there is great. It is definitely our Go To place when eating out in Carmel.
Outstanding short ribs and veal picatta. Also delicious salad.
Excellently prepared dishes, flavorable and eye appealing. Attentive and friendly service. A menu sure to satisfy varied tastes. Overall a very, very nice restaurant experience in Carmel.
Authentic Italian in a very comfortable setting. The service is very good and the restaurant has a welcoming vibe.
We were outside so it might have been louder there but they were very accommodating by fitting us in and bringing all the heat lamps around! Food was just fine. A little pricey given that it wasn't exactly a foodie experience.
We really enjoyed dinner, paella and a seafood pasta. Reasonable prices and portions. Nice service. We'll be back
Really good food and wait staff were delightful. The Veal was mouth watering flavorful. And they accommodated the extra veggies for my vegetarian hubbie. Generous and delicious. Definitely recommend Carmel's Bistro Giovanni.
Outstanding food and service. We always enjoy our meals at Bistro Giovanni. The linguine with clams and lobster ravioli were delicious. It was a nice quiet night and we were able to fully enjoy with our guests.
Delicious meal. I had the lasagna and my husband had the salmon and both were excellent. The chocolate flourless cake was to die for. This was our first trip to Caramel and we chose this restaurant based on other reviews and we were not dissapointed. There was an older gentleman who asked us several times if everything was ok, which we appreciated. It was expensive but definitely worth it, especially for a special occasion!
For my daughters birthday i decided to bring her here for dinner. Upon arrival we were greeted by warm and friendly staff. After a short wait we were seated for dinner. We ordered appetizers, dinner and wine all of which we enjoyed.
Unfortunately our evening was tainted by poor service from our waitress. We asked for water when we placed the order but then had to ask another staff person later when we realized or waitress had forgotten. When dinner arrived I asked for another glass of wine but never received it.
There was no follow up service after dinner was served. When the dessert menu was delivered I asked for water again but that never arrived.
Good food cannot make up for poor service.
Everything was great! Some of the best food that I've ever had.
Excellent experience! Run like a well oiled machine. My wife and I felt well taken car of and we both really enjoyed our dishes. I got the cannelloni and she got the lobster ravioli, both superb. The ricotta flan was also amazing! Def plan on coming back for another date night.
Very good restaurant run by the daughter and father...iconic restaurant background.
Amazing energy, quality food, great people.
Even though there have been some less than memorable dinners in my life, this one is the first poor review that I have ever done.
We visit Carmel once each year, and this was special since it was the night before Valentine's Day.
We had an early dinner so the number of tables occupied was relatively few. There was a full complement of the wait staff, who chatted with one another in the back of the restaurant. We had a glass of wine and ordered our dinner. We were then presented with a tapenade and bread thirty seconds before our dinner was presented. They should consider fining a different bakery for their bread, which had little to do with an Italian restaurant.
My wife ordered grilled salmon, which was overcooked and almost uneatable.
I ordered the lamb shank and encountered a similar situation.
Normally, a good shank would fall off the bone. This shank decided to stay on the bone.
We should have sent back both dishes, but my wife is recovering from cancer, and we didn't want to spend more time at the restaurant than was necessary.
To add insult to injury the gilled vegetables were soggy and the mashed potatoes could have come from a box. Our waiter came to our table at the end of dinner and ask how we liked the meals. I told him that we would not be returning. There was no replay.
Their house wine was good, but the complimentary port was closer to grape juice.
After all was said and done, I still left a 20% tip.

The veal osso buco was excellent, the chicken Marsala was very delicious. Very enjoyable dinner with great service
Best dinner out in years. Exceptional food, wine and service. Best lasagna ever. Block 57 cab sav was exceptional. Go to this place!
We had a great dinner during the AT&T golf week - seated exactly on time and the usual great food service
This was our first visit to Bistro Giovanni, and we happened to pick a very busy weekend in Carmel. Our table was ready precisely at the time of out reservation, and the staff seated us quickly and were very attentive through the night. The food was excellent and the wine choices were outstanding. We were very happy with the entire evening. Noisy but energetic - just the way a good Italian restaurant should be!
We wanted an early dinner before going to the theatre. We reserved for 5:30 PM on Saturday night of AT&T Pro AM. Big mistake. Very noisy in the restaurant. No parking ~ so we got there 15-20 minutes late. Food was very good. But we felt a bit rushed - as if the restaurant was trying to turn our table over for a second seating. We are locals - so will try again - but not on a busy touristy evening.
Friendly service and delicious food
Carmel's Bistro Giovanni offers a delicious menu with many choices. The service was outstanding and the food was very tasty. We came back the next night to try some of the other items on the menu. Again the food and service were outstanding.
Lovely evening at Carmel's Bistro Giovanni. The Veal Parmesan was tops, service excellent and overall ambiance felt like being at my Italian grandparent's home. It was warm and inviting. Our first time, but definitely not our last.
Very pretty place with great friendly service and very good food. The bread with sun dried tomato tapenade they bring you before the meal is awesome too.
The food was delicious, service was good, evening was most enjoyable
Service was very good but the food was just okay. The oso buco was kind of flavorless. Chicken parm was so so. Not sure why others rate it so highly
Great food, great service. Went for Carmel restaurant week and it was a great value. Seafood Risotto was amazing.
The service was quick and the food was absolutely amazing
Great place to eat. My wife and I have been going here for the last two years. Alberto is the best server!
Sat so close to other guest which made for uncomfortable conversation. Food was subpar quality for the price.
Steamer- lack of flavor no pop
Margarita pizza- crust was over cook and cheese did not taste like fresh mozzarella
Excellent food great service
