The food has become marginal. Feel

Food didn’t not taste good at all! Wine had soured. Appetizers were under cooked. Staff very mediocre at best

We love Gigi’s, but where so disappointed when we booked a brunch & all they had was an Easter dinner menu. I don’t understand who eats dinner at 11:30am, wish we where told when booked, so we left & ate elsewhere that served brunch

Quality of food and service doesn't match $$ paid. Perhaps short-staffed? I feel for these establishments as its easier to sit at home and collect extra unemployment then to do these tough jobs.

Service was rushed from the moment we sat down until we were rushed out the door
Really unfortunate because I had come for the evening to visit and have dinner with my daughter
Our reservation was 6:30 and entree and dessert later we were in our car by 7:15
Disappointed

The food was not good. Super dry pasta with a half a chicken breast was $22 and a KIDS burger with just meat and cheese was $16! Drinks were OK. Server was great but not worth it at all.

Shrimp and Grits are a favorite. When the brisket wasn’t prepared to the chefs standards, a substitute from the kitchen was offered. Cannot tell you how much that impressed us. Gigi’s is a go-to place for good food and good service!

I looked for dining recommendations from a parent face Book page. Gigi's was mentioned quite a few times and figured we couldn't go wrong especially since the menu had something for everyone one in my party of five.

Our Server, Jennifer, was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and the ambience was very relaxing.
After diner we walked around the premises and realized they also have outdoor seating which looked very nice.

Overall, I would most definitely go back!

Poor service from the moment we stepped in the door, four people huddled around the hostess station, and not one would greet us or acknowledge our presence. Atmosphere was nice, food was mediocre (3 of 4 meals were disappointing) and service was poor. We made a reservation for late afternoon, hoping to beat the dinner rush, and we did, unfortunately we had a waitress who couldn't be bothered to refill our drinks, ask about our food or even show us the dessert board. It's a shame too, my daughter had been looking forward to going back to Gigi's since before Covid (this was her 11th birthday) the last time we were there everything was excellent, not so this time.

Surprisingly after eating here for many years we had a marginal experience for dinner. The waitress clearly did not care or want to be there. 2 of 3 entrees were severely overcooked and very dry.

Food and cocktails were great. Service was very slow. We only saw our server three times during the 1 1/2 hour meal. The ambiance and noise level would have been okay if it weren’t for the door to the patio slamming shut every 20-30 seconds. It was pretty clear from the looks on faces around us that we weren’t the only ones bothered by the sound.

We enjoyed a quiet dinner with our son who we had not seen in over a year (COVID). The food was fantastic and the service was prompt and courteous. Definitely a place to return again.

Steaks were good, Salmon was over cooked, and pork chop was inconsistent very dry on the outer parts and moist closest to the bone.

This is the 2nd time we dined at GiGis and it has not disappointed! My husband and son had the cajun chicken pasta and raved about it. My daughter had the pork chop which was enormous and I had the ravioli-all excellent!! We will definitely be back again!

Gigi's is a State College favorite. It is beautifully eclectic---a mix of industrial chic and quirkiness. Our meals were fine. The disappointment was that very good staples like oysters and other seafood were missing from the menu...maybe due to winter or Covid, but they definitely need to return to the apps and entrees lists!

Still, a good evening was had by all! We'll be back.

The food was good, but the service was a miss. I'd like to love it here. When they host th CBICC events, I do love it. But something always disappoints me when I come in for a meal.
