    We go to Gigi’s quite often and last night we celebrated my wife’s birthday. The service was good as always, and we tried one of the specials that they had for the evening. The crawfish and grits with chicken was excellent.

    Had a wonderful dinner in a very pleasant room with outstanding food — our group of 5 had swordfish and filets (3) cooked perfectly and short ribs. We were celebrating our December birthdays in our family —- even the table had happy birthday confetti. This is a great place to get together with family and friends to celebrate.

    My husband and I had a wonderful meal at ASG this past Friday. Our server was amazing. He was extremely attentive and so nice. The food was to die for. We started with the sweet potato soup - it was served with wild rice arancini balls - OMG! They took the soup to another level. My husband ordered the seafood risotto - the risotto was cooked to perfection and there was an extremely generous amount of seafood - each with different textures - all cooked to perfection and oh so delicious. I had the chicken. This was not your average chicken dish. It was an experience. The presentation, taste and texture was incredible. For dessert we shared the chocolate tres leche dessert. It was a piece of chocolate tres cake with sweet cream on a bed of freshly made caramel accompanied by a generous dollop of slightly spicy chocolate mousse. Talk about a piece of heaven on a plate…If you are looking for an amazing meal, generous (and delicious) cocktails, excellent service and an awesome view of College Ave then look no further - ASG is your place. Thank you for an amazing meal! We will definitely be back the next time we are in Happy Valley.
