Caring and impeccable service put our first visit to Gigi’s over the top. Everyone in our party of five rated their meals 5 out of 5. Osso Buco, Lobster ravioli, lasagna, delmonico, all top notch. We’ll definitely be coming back to our new favorite place!

This review is only based on the food and value since we took our order to go we did not have any experience with atmosphere/service etc... We wanted to try this place for sometime based on reviews. (wish i would have asked our neighbors before...now since we live close to gigis we found after we ate there and then asked several of our neighbors about it the experience they had is similar to ours) Our mom and dad were coming to visit and we agreed it was a bit hot to be cooking at 90+ degrees outside. My wife reminded me we had been wanting to try gigis so i agreed and we started looking at the menu. I couldnt understand why a chef would choose to offer new england clam chowder and lasagna bolognese on a menu in the middle of july when the weather has been forcasted over 85 degrees consistently for weeks. im not familiar with the menu but it does say daily menu. i would assume the chef has control over the planned offerings? The world is endless with ingredients and options - hey honey its 93 degrees outside lets have new england clam chowder and lasagna bolognese for dinner- says no one ever. But seeing as we have been cooking regularly at home for the past few months we decided to order a large amount of menu items to really sample what they had to offer i think the total bill was close to $300. We ordered several entrees, appetizers, soup , desserts including the lasagna (after all the executive chef has opened the premier Italian restaurant in the capital of Bahrain- it must be amazing since its on the menu at this time) and clam chowder. We also had salmon, peach chicken, gazpacho etc...and a sampling of desserts. At this point im losing or have lost your interest in reading this review so i won't bore you with the breakdown of the items. i will just say this. In our experience this restaurants food is in the sea of mediocrity nothing really special or exceptional about it. If you take the price into consideration then it takes a plunge even further down (example-lasagna $22). We found the creations to be way over priced therefore driving the value you are receiving as the guest to be a one star. Of the 12 menu items we tried only two standouts existed the new england clam chowder- four stars and the key lime pie- five stars. Good luck if you go i hope you find your food and value for your money to be better than ours.More

The decor is warm and inviting. The bar is a good place to wait. The flat breads are amazing as is everything on the menu. I just wish I could make a reservation and I would go more often. As I love this place.

My daughter recently moved to Cleveland. I came for a visit and we wanted to find a place for a Sunday Brunch. We used Trip Asvisor to find this place. Loved the menu and the food was outstanding. Can’t wait to come back.

Simply incredible. Everything was delicious and the staff was so welcoming. We'll definitely be back. Cant stop thinking about those bruschetta boards. Thanks Gigi. You truly have created something special.

I recently had a lovely relaxed lunch at Gigi's, on their outdoor patio. The food was excellent and the service 4-star. I was having lunch with a good friend, and we ended up chatting for quite some time. We were careful not to hog the...table if there were customers waiting, but as there were not, we were grateful that the waitstaff cheerfully let us linger over our meal. So often restaurants want you to eat and move on! Great food, great service, we will go again!!More

We have stopped at Gigi's for brunch on the weekends and lunch during the week a couple of times and have never been let down. It’s a fun place to get some great food and enjoy a glass of wine. They have plenty to choose...from. I highly recommend the Bruschetta Board were you get to pick the four that you like. If you are still hungry after that you cannot go wrong with one of their paninis or salads.More

Unusual menu. We went for my birthday with friends and the menu was limited. Lots of people think this is a great place to eat, but I was not excited about it. The chicken was pre-breaded and there was no way to order it plain....Interesting food, but not very healthy.More

Gigi’s has atmosphere and a great location- despite the adventures in parking. For some, that would be enough to rave about it. However, the food is excellent. The menu is somewhat limited but I think a restaurant is best when it delivers what it promises...instead of under delivering. The food combinations are clever and the servings are generously adequate not grossly excessive. I feel confident in the good quality of the ingredients in the food. While I very often reorder a favorite- the cheddar avocado panini, everything I have eaten there has been great.More

We ate here Saturday morning before going to playhouse square. The restaurant is small but comfortable. The menu offers some very interesting options. Frittatas, biscuits and gravy, eggs and French toast. They also serve cocktails, and the Bloody Mary was outstanding. It is pricey. 2...cocktails (Bloody Mary and mimosa) frittata, French toast and bacon and 1 coffee, with tip $65. Not quite sure the food and beverages merited that priceMore

My wife and I were in the middle of errands and decided to pop in for lunch. What a pleasant surprise. The decor, the music, the service, the food--all of it just perfect. We had the bruschetta as well as soup. It was a filling,...but light lunch. I would love to come back for dinner some time. There is a full bar and the atmosphere would be great for a romantic dinner, or a meal with friends.More

I love this place, I can walk here which means I can have a few of their yummy cocktails!! The space is really cozy but the tables are not too close. The bar has this great lounge area close to a fireplace. The bruschettas, small...plates and salads are really great for a light meal. The entrees, particularly the specials of the day, are incredibly creative and tasty and considering the portion size quite good value. The wine list and cocktails make it easy to please any palate. During spring, summer and fall, the patio is one of the best places to hang out, but come early cuz everyone else wants to be there too!More
