“Oscar night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Four of us had dinner here on the night of the Oscars. We liked that they offered an Oscar themed special menu however none of the offerings really appealed to us. We ordered off the regular menu. After hearing over-the-top reviews I think we were expecting more. We loved that they had a red carpet with red velvet ropes outside the front door and it was fun to see some Oscar revelers dressed up for the celebratory night. The maitre d' was genial and interested to know if we were happy in every way which is important. The service was very good. The wine was delicious. I just can't say any of the entrees were something I'd have to go back for.

“Great bar - friendly staff and guests...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped in for a quick drink on a very cold day - great experience. The bartender and staff were friendly and competent - our neighboring guests at the bar were friendly and also enjoying the visit. Glad that we had stopped.

“Small fish out of water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Gigi in Rhinebeck tries way too hard and it can't deliver - the odd space has no atmosphere, while the staff struggles under its popularity. And the food is mediocre at best, trying big city florishes in a very small town way. The locals don't seem to mind at all.

“Assuming exterior, delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We had a great lunch outside. Attentive service, fresh local ingredients, and wonderful homemade pasta. We had plans for a big dinner later that night, but we couldn't resist finishing everything.
