A word from Gitan Bistro Cru
Gitan is a bistro and wine bar specializing French/Mediterranean flair and rare, hard to find wines. After 10pm they have a special late night menu.
"In Europe we thought of wine as something as healthy and normal as food and also a great giver of happiness and well being and delight.
Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary."

I went because I had a Living
Social deal for wine & cheese. The deal noted that I should make reservations which I am glad I did because the place was packed except for one table which frantic bar tender/server/hostess said you can sit there after seeing me standing for 2 minutes. The row home turned restaurant was very nice, but was packed to the brim. It took the single front staff person a 10 min to get our order in and about another 10 to get our wine and then another 10 to get our cheese to go with our wine. In between ordering and getting our wine we were asked to move to a smaller table to accommodate one of the larger parties that was waiting. All and all besides being understaffed the food was above average."

Fun place with a great bar menu.
Not a place for children. Hummus was to die for! Friendly, helpful, if slow, service. Don't expect a fast paced meal- this is a place to go to slow down, enjoy, and relax."

Finally went here last Friday,
after always seeing how busy it gets some nights. Definitely make reservations if you're going after 630-7pm, and don't go here if you're in a rush. The good is slow, but absolutely amazing."

Went here for the first time with
a groupon and really enjoyed it. The bartender/server was very attentive and gave great recommendations. Will return soon."

Small intimate restaurant with a
great wine selection, and a menu sure to please many palates. Tables are a premium, reservations are essential for Saturday night dining, otherwise hightop tables in bar and bar top dining is your only option."

Went to Gitan to use a Groupon and
loved this place. A great wine menus. Cheese plate was awesome and the Dads Garlic Shrimp was fantastic. The barmaid/waitress Heather was an absolute delight."

I went here over the weekend with
a groupon for a wine and cheese pairing, and loved the atmosphere but after waiting for an hour to get our cheese plate, i was less than thrilled. The server apologized a few times and explained that they had been backed up for several hours, but from hearing comments from other staff members, it seems to be a fairly regular occurrence. The server was knowledgeable about the wine list and recommended some great pairings for the cheeses we had ordered."

Everything about it spelled
perfect romantic Valentines Day restaurant! Food and service were fantastic. Wine was great. Comfy and cozy while maintaining a high class feel. The tables were close together but never felt crammed or like the other table next to us invaded our space. My wife is pregnant and loved the chicken entree! It was a perfect valentines evening for us! Staff were wonderful and enjoyable. Never felt rushed or forgotten. Cannot say it enough at how perfect the restaurant was for us on valentines day!"

The restaurant is not very big but
is small and quaint with a lot of character. The tables on the wall are a bit close together so you can't help but hear the guests conversation next to you. in there were only 2 servers on a Friday night so if you are pressed for time this may not be the restaurant for you. But me and my boyfriend had planned a leasurely dinner and the whole experience was 2 hours and 15 minutes. The lemon pepper salmon was delicious and seasoned perfectly! My bf had the scampi and he loved it! The food here is wonderful and tastes like it is prepared from mom's kitchen."

We like to try out new spots & I
must say that this spot right here is nice & intimate. The food takes a little longer to come out but that's because there's one cook & she prepares your food with a lot of love! It is DEFINITELY worth the wait. During our wait time me & my honey enjoyed great conversation, laughs & DELICIOUS cocktails that our waitress made up. We will be back for sure!"
