Good meal, nice atmosphere, service was average. Would come back again for the atmosphere and food and give the service a second chance.

Our server, Charlotte, was very friendly, informative and attentive. She gave us excellent recommendations. I had the pork chop and side wedge salad and my wife had a full wedge salad, fried green tomatoes and French onion soup (served in a hollowed-out onion!). Everything was great! We also shared strawberry shortcake for dessert. The best meal we've had in quite awhile. We will be back the next time we are in State College.

This is one of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure of dining at. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. We arrived earlier than our reservation and the hostess was very accommodating. Will definitely return!

We stood in the lobby waiting to be seated for 15 minutes which would be understandable if there were more than three other people in the restaurant. Also my food was burnt to the point it was inedible.

The shrimp and grits is so yummy! Not sure what sous chef is in charge of this multi layered deliciousness, but it is out of this world! Aside from that all is always great at GiGi’s. It’s one of our favorites places in state college

We waited 45 minutes to get a bottle of wine. Waitress came back 2 times indicating the bottle we requested was not available. They did provide a free appetizer but it made the entire experience disappointing. I am usually a big fan of this restaurant

We sat outside but were not advised that there was a Cigar event adjacent to the patio. I was inhaling cigar smoke throughout my entire meal - it was quite odd and offensive. We ordered the filet mignon which was yummy but too small to fill an adult. My daughter and I left hungry.

We have been to Gigi’s multiple times, but this was the first time since their new COVID-19 protocols were put in place. It was a wonderful experience! We requested outdoor seating for our party of 6, and were offered a picnic table in their new added tent outside just beyond their usual patio. We felt incredibly safe, and our server, Cameron, was phenomenal, especially given the fact that the family members we had with us tend to be quite a bit particular and can be difficult. The food was amazing as usual. I will always recommend the crab cake entree and the Southern Shrimp Carbonara...so good! The highlights were, of course, the cocktails...my wife loved her Paloma and I went for my standard Honey Nut Old Fashioned, which is one of the best drinks I’ve ever had.

The *only* thing that was a bit different, and we’d be interested in seeing them address, is that it did get fairly dark in that new auxiliary tent once the sun went down. There weren’t any lights in the tent, and it seemed like the only light we had was ambient light from the car dealership next door and the glow from the string lights on their patio...some people might like such a dim atmosphere, but it did make the end of our meal a bit difficult to navigate without our phone flashlights (finishing our food, signing the bill, etc.)

But that was the only thing that was even remotely an inconvenience, even in this COVID moment. We felt incredibly safe, the staff were all masked all the time, and we were appropriately distanced from the other tables.

The food and service were excellent. The servers were masking, social distancing was practiced, menus were on our phones, and tables were well spaced. It was as the first time we have gone out to dinner and actually ate inside a restaurant since March.
It was a good experience.
And there are huge tents with lights outside and well spaced tables for anyone who might be uncomfortable inside.

We've been to Gigi's several times and it's one of the better restaurants in the area in terms of interesting food, decent service, and bang for your buck. We really appreciated that they had outdoor seating available and allowed us to book it via OpenTable. Our only issue this visit was that we were seated as 2 people at a 6-top in the sun. There was a 4-top and another 6-top in the shade available we asked if we could sit at instead. We were told that wasn't possible due to "large parties" coming in later. We were offered the choice of picnic tables or staying where we were, so we opted to stay where we were as our clothes weren't conducive to climbing in and out of picnic tables. As the evening went on, we saw the "larger parties" that were seated at the tables we'd requested to move out of the sun to (which also came in later, and stayed later, when the sun might not have affected them as much) and it was a group of 4 and another couple. So, I still don't understand why we were treated as if our request was unreasonable/impossible, but the food was good (especially the peanut butter pie dessert), and they took Covid protocols seriously, which we appreciated.

Another wonderful evening at Gigi’s! I think they have one of the best menus in all of State College. Every menu item we have had has been fantastic! Last night we ate on the patio which was a charming atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly, energetic and helpful. An overall great evening! We will definitely return!

We've eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. Outside dining was enjoyable and relaxing. Social distancing was easy with well placed tables. All servers wore masks, and hand sanitizers were located throughout the premises. For the first time in a restaurant in 4 months due to Covid, we felt "safe"

Unfortunately they took us out behind the building to a field next to a car dealership. Tables were set up in a field along with picnic tables under a tent. Not acceptable for the price of the meals. We left disappointed

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Gigi's made us feel safe and well cared for for our Anniversary celebration! We sat outside on the covered patio. It was slightly raining, and we didn't feel damp at all. The ambiance was lovely with fairy lights and faux fire torches. The staff were properly masked as were all of the customers. The host wiped down the table and chairs before we sat. The food was very good! Very different for Central Pennsylvania. A very nice Anniversary experience.

My husband and I went on a date night to Gigi's. We enjoyed the amazing food and atmosphere. We sat in the outdoor seating area and it was perfect. If you're looking for a different, upscale restaurant in the State College area this is the place for just that. We will most certainly be returning!

The food and the service were phenomenal, as we've come to expect, and the atmosphere, as always, was almost just right. The only thing I'd change (and this is not really a complaint) is number and location of televisions in relation to the seating. We'll certainly happily return to Gigi's, but for us, the TV's are simply a distraction and annoyance. Thanks!
