Was a perfect spot for a dinner meeting with a group of six. The menu offerings were varied and everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they had. (The parsnip soup was particularly fantastic.) Service was very attentive and friendly, atmosphere very nice. Would definitely go back.

Enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar. Service was lovely and very nice atmosphere. The only comment I would have is that the wine could have been colder. Overall a nice spot.

Jared W, Manager at Gio, responded to this review

Thanks for the heads up, Kindness_matters2013. Nice service and atmosphere should have appropriately chilled wine to round out the experience. The next time you see us, the wine will definitely be as it should. Hope to see you soon!
