Super great food! Tables are just close together. My neighbor spilled her red wine all over my leg on accident, which I guess was the kicker. Aside from that, it was a delight.

best hamburger ever! my friend had the mussels and more than half were not open so she asked if they could heat them up in water again and see if they opened... they came back with a new bowl and they were perfect... we were all happy. I will be back!

Love the Sunday fried chicken special! Can easily split between two. We sat outside which was nice - side street location so not busy. Service was attentive. Wine selections could use some work, but overall decent value for the cost.

My partner, friends, and I went for two birthday celebrations, one being my own. We were greeted and sat quickly, Meg (our server) was amazing and attentive. Their drinks were well priced and very tasty. The best part though is the food. This place is a hidden gem and their menu is diverse and EVERYTHING is high flavor and quality. They’ve won us over, and we will frequently be dining. Definitely make it a point to check this place out!

Our al fresco dining experience was wonderful. Though the food is consistently very good, the dining room can be very noisy. Perfect solution, sit outside.

Great space, convenient location, good food - what's not to like? The swordfish chop was one of the most interesting cuts of fish I've seen and was delicious. Ordered the trout provencal - trout was good but a bit heavy on the provencal sauce. Would ask for that on the side in the future. Lovely outdoor area weather permitting.

Gemini is a very nice restaurant. The food was good...not crazy good, but good. It’s not a ton of bang for your buck, but it was a fun place to have a girl’s brunch.

Gemini proves once again that it is at the top of its game. In a city where restaurants are the stars, Gemini is a stand out neighborhood spot and destination restaurant where one can dine again and again.

Very average. Eggs Benedict was tasteless and luke warm—needed seasoning. Latte came luke warm as well, even though I sent it back to be reheated.

Came for brunch on a Saturday early afternoon with my teen kids. We came here because they had a great dish at the GCM bbq. Service was rather cold, wouldn't know my server's name because she didn't provide it. Food was outstanding though. Will come for dinner and hope for a better service experience.

We love Gemini, but we did feel very rushed. Our server was great and we love the neighborhood ambiance with such great food. They brought over the starters two minutes before bringing out the main course and kept trying to clear before we were finished. Just felt very rushed.

If not for the noise level, this would be one of my favorite restaurants. The food and service are consistently excellent, but the noise level is more than uncomfortable. I feel like I can only go when I can sit outside. Too bad. It is a great restaurant.
