awful service

2

I've been a long time customer of this resto and frankly speaking, food is good, price is affordable, but the service is just awful.
We made a reservation for a group and when we got there, the person-in-charge says there was no reservation made. We gave the person's name that we spoke to and guess what was the reply 'the reservation was not done through me, he's off now'. wtf! what's the use of making reservations and what kind of service is that? since our group is quite a number they say they would seat us near the stage but we have to vacate it once the band started. huh? and what if we're not done eating just yet? we asked for the manager but yeah, he wouldn't face us!
we left and swore that we'll never come back to that stupid place!

Bouno? definitely not

1

A couple of nights ago, friends had dinner at Boun Giorno Shaw. A friend recommended it since she said she had eaten at their tagaytay branch and she claimed that the food was delicious. And guess what? Its a mistake after all.

First, the resto's air conditioning system is not working. For Pete's sake its summer! Cant they have it fixed? Before the meal was served we are all sweating. We have to ask for a fan, and since its the sole fan in the room, a rude customer took it and placed it in their direction.

For the food, definitely not Italian! pasta and pizza smothered with cheese. They are just masking the taste of the food. The only pasta I actually liked is
the spaghetti with olive oil. The cannelloni, lasagna, ravioli is so-so or i'd say just a cheese dish. The risotto is too wet, parang lugaw na natuyuan ng sabaw.

Service. Its awful. We asked for crushed garlic. Until we finished diner no garlic showed up. And the waitresses are not accommodating.

Would I recommend it? Definitely not. The friend who recommended boun giorno is with us that noght, and she said its not like the food she had in Tagaytay. She's disappointed bigtime!

a homey meal

3

I learned of the place through blogs and reviews. Since I live near the area, tried it with a few friends in tow and was not disappointed. I love the CBK chicken. The porkchop is also good, tasty and not dry. I'm not a fan of lamb, so that one I didnt like, I think its too dry. The parmesan crusted fish, its good. We had the scarlett cake, its ok. Not bad but not really that great. Will try the chocolate cake next time.

The previous reviewer is right, there's nothing that you cant make at home. But thats the charm of it, a nice homey meal, really comforting.

Will I recommend the place? Yes, its worth the try.

I have to agree with the previous reviewers. Food is ok and the staff is rude and service is really really slow. I like the teriyaki roll but the unagi roll tasted funny. Not coming back again!

This place is good if you are dining with friends. The size is good enough for sharing.
I love their oriental salad. And their boneless buffalo chicken is also good. Pizza is ok. But forget about their seafood pasta. O yeah, I love their burgers.

Would I recommend it? Sure. Its not the best resto but there are sure some stuff in the menu worth your trip.

Jambalaya

4

I was hesistant to dine here at first, because their specialty is 'seafood' jambalaya. and i have allergies to shellfish. But my friends are really dying to try it, since they've heard about it from another friend. The manager is very nice. He said there are other things on the menu I could try. So since I dont want to be a party pooper, I asked the manager bluntly, 'are your seafoods fresh?' You see my allergy gets triggered only if these mollusks are not fresh. He assured me that they are fresh and well cooked. Bottomline, we ordered the seafood jambalaya and it was really good. And dont forget their eggplant parmigiana, which is also good.

Service - prompt
Staff (waiters, manager) - friendly, patient, accomodating
food - portion is good for sharing

overall - for me its excellent.

not a place to go back again

Pizza is so so. I can make a better pizza even on a toaster.

Pasta is bland. And they say its their best seller.

nanohana experience

A few friends and I meet up for dinner and we decided on Japanese cuisine. One of my friends suggested a place near their office that she once dined in.

The place is nice, not flashy or anything. The staff that attended us is really nice and accommodating.

We ordered, 2 tempuras – ebi and ika, yaki udon, kani salad, chiken teppanyaki, and a maki. I so love the kani salad! The yakiudon is a bit soggy. The tempuras are ok. And the teppanyaki is fine. My friends loved the teppanyaki more than the tempuras. I also loved their maki. Oh did I mentioned that I so love their kani salad. 

It’s a place I would recommend if you wanna try something different. A bit pricey though but it was a pleasant dining experience.
