I was surprised to see only 3 other tables at 7 pm on a Saturday. The lighting is quite harsh and the music, while I liked the selection, was totally wrong for the atmosphere. I was expecting something a little more European than hits from the 1970s. That said, it was a nice touch to have white linen tablecloths and... More

It would take me a half hour, to mention, everything that was wrong, from BAD SERVICE, WORST WAITER, OVERCOOKED FOOD (no vegetable choice),& nobody to even care.The cook, is the owner (can't cook, or able to hire a waiter, that knows, what to do) It was good, many years ago, obvious, something has changed .DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY, OR TIME!!

The service was very good, but the meal was average. The mushroom soup was hot and tasty. The duck special had a heavy sauce and the vegetables were cold. It seemed that they had been plated prior to the duck being ready and allowed to cool down. Having read other reviews I was expecting more.

This classic French restaurant in a strip mall to the west has managed to survive for 28 years, when other French restaurants have come and gone. However, on this Thursday night, only four tables are occupied. The room is pleasant and comfortable enough, but somehow lacks intimacy and cosyness - I think it's the flat overhead lighting, which I would... More

This unpretentious restaurant provided for some great food with only some minor negatives. Pros: - Everything we ordered was very good. We had filet mignon (most tender one I've ever had), mushroom soup (excellent!), Caesar salad (very fresh), and pork tenderloin medallions (very good but not as flavorful as the filet mignon with 2 different sauces). Dessert was a chocolate... More

Last Friday my wife took me to Gini's Restaurant for my birthday dinner and we we very impressed with the atmosphere and an excellent meal - a five course dinner. I enjoyed a fine fish soup with a tomato base, an excellent arugula salad, a Chateaubriand, with the tourneed potatoes done to perfection, with a great cheese plate for dessert.... More

We enjoy going to Gini's for special occasions, it is a hidden gem. The ambiance is nice with very good service. The escargot is amazing along with the rack of lamb. The 3 and 5 course meals are great value for $33 - $49, very generous portions and well prepared. We have been going to Gini's for years and remains... More

This was our third visit to this quiet restaurant, and I have to say this one is easily one of the finest for food. We are long time residents of Edmonton and have eaten at all the top restaurants. Jack's Grill on the South side was one of our favourites before it closed. Gini's is right up there with Jack's.... More

We go to Gini's quite often as the food and service is excellent. I had a wonderful surprise when I ordered the Bouillabaisse Marseillaise (fresh seafood in a saffron broth). It was soooo good. We will continue to go to Gini's as the food is always expertly cooked. Our thanks to the chef and the servers.

I was not expecting much by the look of the outside of the strip mall. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and food inside. I enjoyed the fish soup, a house salad, venison and an awesome creme brulee. The price for this five course meal was reasonable, considering the portion size and quality of food. I am looking...
