Stopped in here for an early evening snack--good beer selection and good bar food. The cheese steak empanadas and hummus plate were great! Service was attentive and fast. Overall, a fun place.

Food is average. The claim to be a Tapas restaurant. Not really. More like a family style place. Ambience not great. Dark and dingy. Air conditioner exposed.

Waiter was very helpful and we really enjoyed him. Prices, especially given the quantity and quality of the food we got, were way too high. The new owner said that there had been some glitches, so I'm hoping that he takes a look at the prices and upgrades the quality of the cooking.

Great service and food. It is located on the main Market Street. You can dine inside or sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere. The only thing that I didn't like was the fountain soda. Just a seven minute walk from my hotel at Wyndham. A late evening walk with the love of your life can spark a fire later!

Stopped here sunday for drinks, was told by the hostess there were happy hour specials. Our waiter said he was new, had no idea what was going on and was burping throughout the time he was speaking to us. A year ago we had a great experience here with great sangria. We asked for a pitcher of their famous sangria... More

This place needs serious help. It has a great location, good decor and is clean...that's where the good ends and the bad begins. We ate here because we were hot, tired and thirsty. Menu looked good and sign outside said "voted best cheesesteak". We were seated and then asked by several people if our order had been taken...we said "no"...finally... More

Visited this past Sat evening. Could have done much better in the area. Chose here for the outdoor seating. Food was pretty bad. Their claim of "best cheese steaks in Philly" is greatly exagerated. In a city full of cheese steaks, trust me, theirs is far from the best. My wifes salmon b-l-t was fishy. She tried a couple of... More

Ordered a simple salad and waited 30 minutes. Took 15 mins to come back with my soda. The salad didnt have dressing on it so I asked for balsamic vinaigrette on the side. Server comes back with this nasty concoction of the saltiest thing ever then disappears for 20 mins. I ask the bartender if she could call my server... More

We took advantage of Living Social to check out Gigi. It has a nice location so having a meal outside on a nice summer day was awesome. The service was fantastic. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The value of Living Social was excellent. We got two salad and 4 tapas. The avacado salad was decent however the tomato/fresh... More
