Food was great, each dish was interesting and easy to share among 4 people. Would definitely recommend the crab salad and Japanese eggplant! Good pacing and service, would definitely recommend for a night out!
Giant is such a fun time. The restaurant is pretty crowded - they ask for proof of vaccination, but know that others are directly next to you (tables are within inches of each other). The food though makes it worth it - every dish is great. Each dish has a least one thing interesting about it / out of the ordinary. The jalapeno biscuits we both agreed perhaps the best we've ever had - so savory. The vegetables are very fresh and refreshing. Peppers were very rich and savory. The tagliatelle and bucatini were rich, tasty, and had fun textures. I personally thought the gin and tonic could have been a bit more creative like the food, but was still great! The wine list is also very extensive and has $50 range for those looking to not break the bank. Highly recommend for a fun night out.
GIANT runs on all cylinders! Each plate can be shared by four people and the server recommended a total of eight selections which included starters to entrees. The server was just great! Overall an amazing experience. They also have a back patio. We will return. Thanks for a super evening.
Food was good and very flavorful. Tables were very very close to one another (I noticed this on the left side of the resto when you walk in), approximately 10 inches apart, so can be uncomfortable for some. Getting in and out of the seat, if you're sitting on the inside, is super awkward as the tables around you need to move to accommodate. The thing is, food was delicious and the ice cream dessert was such a good ending. So overall 4/5.
Would give Giant a 4.5 stars. I loved the food. Everything we ate was delicious but the tables are crazy close together even for non COVID times.
Had a date night here with my best friend and LITERALLY had one of the best times.
When you walk in there is a fair sized dining area with ample tables for the size of the place. We were sat at the far end, towards the back of the restaurant. Normally, this would have been bothered me being sat in such a busy part of the restaurant where the staff is coming in and out of the kitchen. HOWEVER, I am one of those people that happens to LOVE bar seating at restaurants.
Culture and Ambiance:
Bar seating really gives you the opportunity to get to know staff and see the culture of the place. This seating happened to give you a full view of the kitchen. My friend and I got to chat with staff and watch them make our DELICIOUS meals first hand. Overall very chill and rewarding.
Side Note: I used to live in the building two doors down. This restaurant used to be a thai place. Getting the know the culture of this place was an important aspect for me. Growing up in this area, you want to get to know the businesses replacing the familiar ones.
FOOD and DRINKS:
First of all, THAT STEAK! Absolutely cooked to PERFECTION. We ordered some carrots and I was quite taken aback at how much flavor was added to make an already yummy vegetable even more tasty. The fish was one of my favorites paired with mushrooms and thinly sliced potatoes. So GOOD! ORDER THE PASTA! Trust me on this one. The drinks were delicious and strong. Desert was chef's kiss. Not too sweet and overall a good note to end on.
All-in-all worth every penny. I will definitely be coming back.
Wow 🤩 the eggplant was so delicious! My boyfriend got the steak and I LOVED the vegetables it came with. Definitely a good place for a date night. The tables though, are soooo close together 🥲 I couldn’t squeeze in.
Between the food service, and drinks the experience was amazing! Highly recommend the onion rings, I wasn’t really feeling the cocktails they offered but wine list is really good, and they were able to do some classic cocktails which really made up for it. I only liked the camera ice cream (I tried all 3 deserts) the others didn’t have a lot of flavor of texture was too dry to eat.
Overall a pretty good experience and I’ll definitely be comeback back.
