Great restaurant! The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food it fresh and fantastic. This place definitely has the cool factor down as well. This was not our first time and it won't be a last.

Such a great find! I had no idea this gem has been in our area for the last year. The food, drinks, service & ambience was great. The only thing we found odd is the restaurant takes measure to ensure your safety coming into the restaurant. But when they seat their guests, they put the tables right next to each other even though the restaurant is sparse.

We dined on what I deemed the bouncy patio. No literally it bounces to the point your water glass sloshes.

The Detroit pizza tasted mediocre.
The Bucatini pasta was very under cooked and over spiced so much my boys who hate to make a scene said o should have sent it back. The prosciutto on a pencil stick bread cracker was sad.

Not Tim’s best by any means and I love lonesome dove and Queenies.

But if you want a great insta post it nails the photo wall background.

This was our first visit and we were very disappointed. We will never go back. Even though we were on time for our reservation ; we were seated 45 minutes later. We were forgotten. I was told we were a NO SHOW even thought I signed in. It was a good thing we were not hungry because it took 2hours to get our food and one order was never brought out. The order was comp'd but still showed up on the final ticket. The music was so loud that the manager and wait staff could not hear us. We had to ask for tea 3 times before we got it. I really expected so much more from a restaurant Tim Love puts his name to.

This is the second time my wife and I have been to Gemelle’s. The first time was at lunch and we had pizza. We each got a different pizza and both were outstanding. The service was friendly and all in all, we enjoyed it enough to try again.

This time, we decided to venture into the pasta menu. My wife got the special (a mushroom ravioli dish) and I opted for the Gemelle pesto pasta with chicken. We split a salad and asked for garlic bread as well. The salads were good, but the bread didn’t come until we were almost finished with our entrees. As for the entrees, my wife’s ravioli was good, but sort of one dimensional and the portion was small. My spiral pasta with pistachio pesto was a disaster! The pasta was plentiful but more like al rubbery than al dente. The breaded chicken looked like it had been purchased from the freezer section of the grocery store. I complained to the waitress who sent the manager over. She was very friendly, offered to bring out another dish (which I didn’t want at this point) and agreed to comp the pasta (however the add on chicken - $8) was not comped. We decided to order tiramisu for dessert and it was very ordinary.

Ultimately we will probably come back again, but would only order pizza and salad. Yeah, forget the other dishes, the pizza is the real thing though. It is amazing!

We arrived on time. I had made reservations for 4 but but my 6 year old granddaughter was with us, too. I told the manager we had reservations and she turned to me and said, “For 4, not 5. We’ll have to work it out.” She turned and stomped away. We were seated and our server was very nice. We placed our order. 4 out of 5 plates were delivered. The 5th plate took an hour to arrive and we had to ask about 3 times. Everyone was finished and plates had been removed. All in all, I would not recommend this restaurant. Food was mediocre. The manager was rude. The server was nice but something went very wrong with our order. The space itself is very cool.

the ONLY reason I am giving this restaurant a high review is because of how OUTSTANDING and kind the manager was. Our waiter was hardly wearing a mask so we decided to leave after he still didn’t correct the issue. Then the wrong food was given to us in our order...

The manager apologized and gave us our meal on the house, and the hostesses were very kind as well! Not a fun birthday experience, but I will give the place another try.

The overall experience was excellent. The staff is an amazingly cohesive unit. The kitchen's attention to detail and care and pride in the ingredients was tremendous. The pasta is cooked to perfection. Order anything that comes with the jalapeno pesto. The biggest downfall of the night... vegetarians beware. If you order a pasta dish without the meat option, you are charged full price! $18 for chicken alfredo without the chicken is still $18! If full price is going to be charged, then offer a veggie sub for the meat or offer a lower price for pasta and sauce. We will go back to sample other dishes. But we will be more demanding for equitable pricing for vegetarian options.

We really enjoyed our dinner! It was our first time and we came for DFW Restaurant Week. The portions were reasonable and we left pretty full. The one negative was out service was fairly slow and it seemed inconsistent between tables. Also, the hostess recognized it was my birthday but our waiter never mentioned it. The table next to us were also celebrating a birthday and received a free drink. It was weird to not have it communicated at all even though it was noted on the reservation.

I originally came to this restaurant for the atmosphere, but the pizza is what keeps me coming back. The crust is so good. I also love their selection of old world wines. Our server, Lexie, was very sweet and attentive.

Our evening at Gemelle was intended to be a relaxed (because we'd both worked all day and were tired) and quiet birthday celebration. We'd been to Gemelle once before and had the best pizza ever!
Our service was outstanding and all of the servers couldn't be more polite and friendly. We wanted to be a it more adventuresome in our food choices and were not disappointed. The food was all excellent! I had a pasta and my husband a chicken dinner.

The only two things that kept the evening from being perfect (given Covid and the weirdness of these times) were the flies constantly buzzing around our table, and the volume of the music. I actually loved the choice of music playing, but for a quiet relaxing evening, it was too loud for us. We will definitely be back though, and maybe next time we'll bring a can of insect repellent (kidding) and wear our party shoes! (not kidding - being tired affects everything else, right?)

We came here for my mother’s birthday after an outstanding recommendation from a friend. My brother was in town to surprise my mom and the staff was so accommodating. They helped him hide and surprise her. Our food from apps to dessert were perfect in flavor and presentation. My mother loved it and the experience will bring us back.

We went to support DFW Restaurant Week. Since we don't eat 4-legged animals, only 2 entrees on the list were available for us to select. The waiter recommended the Eggplant Lasagne. It took FOREVER to arrive and when it did, it was so burnt, I could barely eat it.

Caesar Salad was interesting with bokchoy but frankly it's pretty bitter.

We've eaten here before and like the food and the beauty of the place. This dish - or the execution of it - did not showcase Tim Love's talent.
