We have eaten here dozens of times and appreciate the creative menu consisting of small-plates, the extensive wine list and the occasional jazz entertainment. The most recent visit was for a wine tasting, accompanied by a selected meat and cheese plate, hosted in one of the three private rooms off the main dining area. After the tasting, we went into the main area to make a dinner of it. As always, there were surprising new dishes presented by friendly and knowledgable wait staff.

We were at GIA for the Wine, Meat, & Cheese monthly event. Sierra led the group and had done her homework. She presented each wine and the paired meat or cheese smoothly. Gabe was there as well and lended his sommelier expertise to make the wines pedigree very understandable in a great yet conversational manner. Both were responsive to questions and comments. Rosalie was there lending her considerable knowledge and experience. I'm sorry that it was Rosalie's swan song and we will all miss her but wish her the best in her new job.
I suggest that everyone consider the event for an easy learning experience in the wonderful environment that Nino provides for his clients. Top Marks for every part of Wine, Meat, and cheese.

I have been to this restaurant many times before so chose it for my friend's 40th birthday dinner. Unfortunately,after we ordered we waited 40 minutes for our first tapas (one hummus for 4 people) and then 30 more for the next. We were so hungry waiting that I asked for extra bread and veggie sticks with our hummus and then was charged for it! We would never have wanted it if we had not had to wait so long for our food. Also, we ordered ratatouille, which is really meant to be eaten with a protein or something else, and it came to the table alone. There was a HUGE table next to ours so I don't know if that is why the timing and service was so bad, but I was embarrassed to have planned the dinner there because it was expensive for all of the guests and their experience had really not been positive.

Gia remains one of our favorites - from sitting at the bar for Sunday brunch, to the romantic book nooks at the front for date night, or the dramatic library to catch up with friends, we love the food and atmosphere.

I took my husband out during the week to celebrate his birthday and we had the best time at GIA. It was our first time and the food was delicious. The customer service was awesome. We were seated in a great private and cozy spot, that was perfect for our occasion. Loved the ambiance and live music. My husband was so surprised and impressed, (as was I ;)). He felt really special. I'm so glad we came. I have already recommended the place to a friend, and would love to try their Sunday brunch. We moved to GSO from NYC and this has been the best local experience by far. Thanks again!

We brought another couple who just moved here and has never been. They were amazed the whole way through dinner. From the service to the food. We sat in the library section which they loved as well.

They told every one they couldn’t wait to come back.

Thanks Nino and Joel.

Wow. Gia used to be good. None of the four of us thought anything we ate was very good. Brussels Sprouts were the undercooked and underseasoned. The pork and rice were completely tasteless. The cauliflower too was just bland and sad. Even the darn salad dressing was lifeless. My whiskey sour was too sweet and lacked bourbon kick. The martinis were watered down. So we won’t be back. Too expensive for literally no satisfaction.

We did not have a good experience. Each dish we ordered was either over cooked and burned or terribly under cooked. The soup was Luke warm. Sent it back and it came out steaming, but due to a microwave, not stove. Flat breads were sent back

Another enjoyable evening at Gia. I have dined here on several occasions and have always liked the small plates and creative cocktails. Our server Valerie was very attentive and friendly. The flat bread is my favorite and we had the prosciutto and arugala schiacciata. We had the white bean crostini which to me was very non descript. W also had the thai style crab cakes which were good but I don't recall any Thai seasoning and there was several pieces of shell in them. That order came with 3 half dollar sized cakes. The cocktails I had were the Deconstructed Pina Colada (a shot of rum is poured over top of a frozen ice cube of 'pina colada, including the cherry'. This drink was good and a great idea, but it takes awhile for the cube to melt. I also had the Femme Fatale, which was a litttle bit too tart for my liking. The chocolate martini was great! Will definitely return!

Great for a Friday night date. Loved the atmosphere; eclectic, a little quirky, and filled with various private nooks for intimate conversation. Every dish we had was outstanding. Great flavors, although I'd like to see bigger portion sizes (but hey, it's a tapas place). My beer was stellar---good drink menu.

From sit down to food, 45 min. Main protein position never showed. Bar staff didn't check in to see if things were ok. Rushed when realized a mistake happened. Manager was aware, but never came over to speak to it, yet had to approve discounts on meal. Will never understand restaurants not having properly trained people at front of house.
