Had the great pleasure of dining at Giant on Wednesday night, Dec 14th, 2016. It was our first time at this pretty popular spot and we had expectations of small portions and a din that would prevent conversation.....we were totally wrong!
First, let me say that the decor of the restaurant was warm and cozy. Lighting was comfortable, not dark, not bright. Seating is along 2 rows of upholstered banquets and while tables are fairly close, it was easy to tune out neighboring conversation. Best of all, the owners gave a lot of thought to reducing the noise level by adding wall and ceiling sound proofing (YEAH!) and table conversation was easily exchanged!
The menu is very creative and was explained very well by our waiter (Jeremy). Drinks were generous and creative. Each dish has a range of textures, tastes, and heat. There were four of us and we sampled quite a few dishes. We started with an order of the Biscuits with Jalapeno Butter which were delicious. We LOVED the Brussels Sprouts and the Eggplant. The Chicken with Mole was delicious. While it tasted delicious the Lasagna serving was a bit small. The Ribs were fantastic, Potatoes perfect, and the pastas were each robust and flavorful. Then came the desserts, the Smore in which they mix choc chip cookies with rich chocolate cake and marshmallow was heavenly, then an apple tart served with sour cream ice cream! And last, ice cream rolled in coconut and strawberry chips....a signature of the restaurant, magnificent!
Lastly, the entire evening was enhanced by the fact that the owners, Josh and Justin, were watching over our table, offering suggestions and delivering most of the plates. Their attention to us, and all the patrons, wins them extra stars in our book.
Reservations are greatly suggested as we went at 6:30pm and there was never an open table even when we left at about 8:30pm.
