“A Restaurant for all palates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

My husband has never been a fan of french cuisine and agreed to try Brasserie GiGi after much coaxing...Were we surprised!!! We started with the "single tower" of iced shellfish from the raw bar...amazing...from the presentation to the quality of the seafood...we chose the salmon with asparagus and gigi potatoes for our entree...the best salmon I have ever had in a restaurant...oh and the beer and wine selections were on target...creating an all around perfect dining experience. Can't wait to go back!

“Good chioce for your dinner in Charleston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We were pleased to see a new French restaurant open on Market Street in the heart of the tourist traps. We were greeted at the door by a young lady from Montreal, which was a nice surprise. All new inside and out. The menu is fairly simple. We went there twice. We had a nice simple salad and steak frite the first night - the steak was done perfectly. Try the lobster salad appetizer, which is a mix of lobster chunks and sliced potato with tarragon. The staff went out of its way to be friendly, which is rare in that part of town.
