This was our fourth visit to Giraffe, and it is just about our favorite restaurant on the West Coast. We live near Seattle, but have made the drive just to dine there. Having tried several dishes, they have never failed to delight.

Giraffe has been in operation for 25+ years and is an exceptional restaurant to enjoy lunch or dinner. All meals are prepared with care and attention to detail. The owner, Jamie and his staff offer excellent service.

We went for my father's 91st birthday and it was a dinner he will not forget. From the appetizers to the dessert this is truly fine dining. While we ate inside, there are lovely tables on the patio and with the view of the water, it would be a great place to just have coffee and dessert one evening. The... More

We stopped for lunch on recommendation of a local friend. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and nice ambience. The lunch menu was interesting, food prepared well, and service was very good. We would definitely return.

We have been to Giraffe in White Rock on severeal ocassions and it is usually always excellent. This time, there were flaws in the meal. The special tandoori chicken salada with avocado and walnuts was missing the last two ingredients. The wait between appetizers and dinner was almost 25 minutes. The ciopinno was very tasty but the potato was too... More

One of my favorite restaurants, this is perfect for a romantic dinner, with white table cloths but still a casual west coast environment. The service is excellent, the dishes tasty. We ordered the goat cheese fondue, crab wonton, duck, lamb and outstanding pecan crusted caramel crème brule. My recommendation would be the cheese fondue, lamb and caramel crème brule. I... More

We arrived 5 mins. before our reservation time and were seated promptly and given menus. The waitress came back to wipe the table and we said we were ready to order. She said let me bring you the specials! She brings the sandwich board from the front entrance and squeezes between tables and reads off everything. We order and then... More

We went there on the last day my family was in town. They loved the food and we had a blast. The waitress seemed extremely nervous, that was a little weird. The filet mignon was good but not great. I made a reservation for patio early in the day but it was full when we arrived on time for our... More

On the outside this restaurant seems pretty quaint and cozy, the patio is nice but the inside needs some TLC. The wallpaper is starting to peel from the walls and the menu and wine list jackets are tattered and showing their age. One order of crab wontons as an appetizer and Angelhair Seafood pasta and the Duck as mains. The... More
