Delightful lunch

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

We happened to run into this place after leaving from a massive disappointment at a restaurant on the east end of the beach. We noticed a special on crab benedict on the sidewalk menu and went in to give it a try. It was quite good, reasonably priced, and served by very competent and professional staff. We would happily go... More

Giraffe has been around ...we love the location...it is quaint and elegant. Foods usually good. I went with a friend for Friday brunch and we both were terribly disappointed. I had the seafood crepe which didn't have anything of texture to resemble shrimps or scallops or anything...very mushy....served with boring greasy potatoes.My friend's calamari was soggy and tasteless as well....

This is a fine dinning restaurant but having tasted the first bite of my scallops and chirozo appetizer all I could think was "YUM". The service is efficient and the server was knowlegible about the dressings and sauces and ways the food was prepared but did say a little would be kept secret...chef's prerogative I guess. Reservations are recommended and... More

Came here with friends and family recently. I just had a caesar salad salad. They took half a romaine salad, charred it on a grill, then served it with dressing. It was kind of interesting. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. The place is more of a linen, upmarket sort of place, so it's not really "kid-friendly" - no kid's... More
