The food has become marginal. Feel
Like they’re phoning it in.
Food didn’t not taste good at all! Wine had soured. Appetizers were under cooked. Staff very mediocre at best
We had delicious drinks and food here at Gigis. Our waitress was fantastic. They definitely don't skimp on the alcohol!
Birthday lunch. Waitress very busy. Wonderful atmosphere.
Food has been fantastic every visit and the atmosphere is great
everything was perfect and the most wonderfully decorated restaurant inside and out...even coming from Boston!
We always like eating at Gigis when we visit our daughter at Penn State. Great place and good food!
Everything was Excellent! I’m glad we finally got there! Cannot wait to come back!
We totally enjoyed our meal; the food was excellent and was served promptly with a smile.
The surroundings were lovely and the service was impeccable. Five stars all around!
Beautiful place! Great food! Service was excellent. Our server was Autumn. Fantastic friendly and very attentive. Top notch Easter Dinner!
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
Awesome place to have a fantastic meal. Deviled eggs at delicious !
This was our first time here and our daughter attends Penn State and wanted to go. Food and service was wonderful.
We had a wonderful meal . We would go back for sure. Kind of wish we had gone back for dinner as well.
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!
Our waitress was lovely!
Absolutely delicious food. Excellent service. One of our favorite places in State College.
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!
Nice friendly environment. Food was tasty. Enjoyed the wine.
Our main entrée was watery and flavorless. Will give another try as this was first time there. Salad was excellent and the appetizer fried green tomato's was very good
We enjoyed eating in the bubble. We had great service, great weather and great food for our Anniversary. An added pleasant surprise... a complinentary dessert for the occasion.
Thank you for taking time to share your experience! We are happy you had the chance to visit us in our outdoor dining pods!
Fantastic! Our first visit to Gigi’s since the start of Covid over a year ago. Just as we remembered! Food and service was first rate!
Thank you! We are glad to have you back!
The food was great. Our bartender was awesome! He did a wonderful job creating what we asked for
Thank you for sharing and for the great review!
Loved the atmosphere and the food was absolutely delicious!
Thank you for sharing! Come again SOON!
shrimp w surf n turf no taste
side low impression
would recommend for happy hour/apps not dinner.
I am sorry John! Please let us make up this experience to you! We would love to have you back to show you what we are really all about!
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.
I am so sorry you did not have a great experience while you dined with us! We would love to make it up to you! Please email directly- I would love the opportunity to make things right. We are better than that!
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.
I would love to hear more about your experience! Please message directly for the opportunity to make this visit up to you!
The service is always, always lousy. Drinks take forever, waiters forget to bring things, etc.
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.
Thank you for sharing your experience with others! We hope you join us again soon!
Steaks were good, Salmon was over cooked, and pork chop was inconsistent very dry on the outer parts and moist closest to the bone.
I am so sorry to hear this! I hope you will visit us again and give us the chance to make it up to you!
We always have a great evening out with the family at Gigi's. Thank you!
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.
