I have to admit I was surprised to see
only a 2 1/2 star rating on this restaurant. I ordered the Wall Street sandwich and it was huge, the meat fresh and flavourful. Others in my party had a pasta dish and a burger. Again both portions were substantial and the chicken challenged the pasta for quantity. The burger too was very flavourful. Our server was engaged and friendly. Without a doubt we will be back to try more of their 5 page menu - 9 Eggs Benedict options! The prices appear high on their face ($16.00 for the sandwich) but don't be fooled, you get your money's worth and they are easily on the lower end of the Waikiki norm.
Right in the heart of a great shopping
area. Also has a great happy hour! Sat with some locals who were very friendly and gave us some good recommendations for things to do nearby. We will definitely be back.
Met some colleagues for breakfast and
had the best omelette ever. Server was very accomodating to my special order of an egg white omelette with spinach, mushrooms and onions, no cheese and all the ingredients were very fresh. The fruit bowl was also full of a variety of really fresh fruit. I'd forego the decaf coffee in favor of regular. Service was fast, food was excellent and I'm going back soon. You can go for lunch and park for free right in the hotel from 10am until 3pm or so.
Giovanni Pastrami is one of those
places that you go to in Waikiki because of its name. The food and drinks are well in the upper range, but its in tourist central so no surprises there. It caters to the traveling sports fanatics. They have lots of tvs with various sports playing. And if they aren't just ask one of the staff to help out. Most of staff is friendly - especially when we asked to substitute the tomato for sauerkraut in our sandwich and for free! Food is to be as expected in this area. Filling enough. Not extremely greasy. Extensive menu. Breakfast, lunch and dinner items are always served. Appreciated the military discount as well!
We live here on the islands and
sometimes we treat ourselves to a good restaurant even though its in Waikiki and out of the way. We took a chance on Giovanni's because we love pastrami. We love it and we love the foods they offer on the menu. So everytime we have a special occassion or just a dinner night out, we always go to Giovanni's. The service is great, the waitresses are nice and attentive, parking is right in the back and we just enjoy a nice time at Giovanni's.
Beware not to order too much. The
spaghetti with meatballs is enormous. Leave some space for the desserts, those we had were terrific. The servers are enthusiastic and helpful. Would certainly go there again
We had a great time here. Short wait at
630 pm. Busy for a reason, great food. We had Caesar, wings (hot), and pizza. The food was brought out fast and Hot. The flavor was excellent on the wings. The pizza (supreme) was loaded with toppings! The side salad was huge. Don't miss this for a good meal and fun. 10 tv's for sports and large bar area.
