Waitress was wonderful and appetizers of calamari and spicy shrimp was delicious! Our main dishes of lobster ravioli and the seafood mushroom risotto were so good! All in all! It was a great meal

Not the best. Server was more concerned about turning over tables.

We got our food...needed cheese and bread, got his attention and said I’ll be right with you then took orders for 2 other four tops

Food was very good.

Probably won’t go back.

I had a delicately broiled piece of cod in a caper sauce that I am still thinking about (fondly!) three days later. Gigi is stylish, relaxed, and delicious.

Recently, after new paint and vivid art on the walls, Gigi looks great. I've been going there as long as it's been open, and it's easy to count it my favorite place in this restaurant town. There's been some falling off
in the quality of the food in my last three visits. We all had frittatas for lunch this time. They were thin
slices of egg, with few special ingredients that were mentioned by our server - roasted cauliflower, for instance. Bread, which used to be generously sized and served with olive oil for every table, is now a "perk," which when asked for are dollar-sized rounds with a bit of butter alongside. The wine is still good and well-chosen. So more consistency in the quality of the food would bring Gigi's - still a great place - back to its former position!

It's good to know there are restaurants that serve delicious food in a welcoming atmosphere. We have been often, ordered a variety of foods and are never disappointed. But the highlight is the friendly and attentive staff and gracious hostess.

We were never offered a bread basket to start up our dinner & even had to ask once we were already eating our main course. Appetizer of Calamari was very tasty, but a bit small for the two of us as well as the sauce, which was not enough. The main course was very tasty indeed, but again rather small in the portion for the price charged, and again we had to ask if we could get some parmigiana cheese since it was not offered.
Our opinion overall was that the portions all around were small for the prices charged, and we had to ask for things that should have been offered rather then asked for. Our bill of $85 for 2, before tip with only 2 beers, was high in our opinion although very well cooked and tasty.

This is a great place for a casual meal done very well. Fresh ingredients, thoughtfully prepared, and beautifully presented. Great service, which is what makes this place special.

Service was perfect. We ate outdoors but the inside seems noisy. Food was a little overpriced but you are paying for Rhinebeck ambience. We went on a weeknight so it wasn’t crowded. I’m wondering what it’s like to dine there when it’s crowded. I’m going to repeat: the waitstaff is wonderful.

We had a light lunch including Caesar salads. The salads were just not as good as they have been in the past. Not much parm or croutons. Dressing only medium. Desserts were great.

Very disappointing. The tables for two are inches apart. The conversations at the tables to our left and right were as though they were taking place at our table. The service was rushed. The beet salad was overdressed and somewhat mushy. The tagliatelle with ragu was good.

I live about 50 minutes north of Rhinebeck and have several friends on the other side of the river. Gigi is my go-to favorite place to meet in the middle. The food is quite good, they take good care of us, and it is a pleasant atmosphere. It's worth the drive. We've tried other places but come back over and over to Gigi.

The food seems to have improved recently although my skizza was a bit overdone. The salads were excellent and my husband enjoyed his risotto. The service was very nice and we were accommodated with a quiet(er) table, per my request due to hearing issues. Our reservation was at 8 on Saturday evening, which worked out fairly well because by about 8:45 the crowd thinned out and the noise diminished.

Server was top notch. Handled our large party with no issues. Food was well portioned and very tasty. Very accommodating to some of our “picky” eaters. This was our first time dining here and we will definitely be returning.

Met good friends for a relaxing lunch in Rhinebeck NY. Our bartender was welcoming and fixed wonderful drinks when we arrived. Lunch was delicious and our waiter was attentive and just a nice young man. Will return next time we are in Rhinebeck.

Always reliable, always stylish and always very good food. The giant TV over the bar (even with the sound off) is, I think a misstep, but some people seem to like it.

Two of our friends came up from the City recently to visit us and we had dinner at Gigi. They loved it - the atmosphere, wait staff and, of course, the food! They told us that they will be back to dine there again. Keep up the great work all!

So delicious! Our mid week visit was outstanding! Our server was extremely accommodating. Our paleo diet was easy to keep with the vegetable choices we were given to substitute carbs. Every bite was superb. From the combucha, chicken livers and onions to the lamb shank over greens. We’ll be back!
