                        Gigis has a very cool look and ambiance- very Hip- but the food is good- not great and we don’t mind paying high prices for delicious grub- but I could take it or leave it- trying a bit to hard I would say- price point is way too high! $17 drinks is absurd. Even for Cali. The bees knees was delish however pricey. So at least the bartenders were on it- but still- over priced - would recommend trying this place once because nothing was ‘bad’ but just over priced. And had great service and very cool vibe— but Definitely wouldn’t go twice.

                        we went on thursday jan 20th and the live music was a solo performer singing ballads (queen, whitney houston) at high volume to the point where we could not talk during dinner at all . this was my 4th time at gigi's and the 1st time that the music talent ruined our experience of the dinner unfortunately. the food was also mediocre when it had been much better in the past. not sure what is going on.

                        The manager was great and greeted us with complimentary champagne for my husbands birthday. Great ambiance. Server was on the slower side but friendly. My husband can’t stop raving about his bagel with lox meal. I on the other hand have a note for the chef- your French toast dish was dry AF! One single piece of bread that was way too thick to not be dry. Ended with a nice birthday dessert. Overall great time was had by all….just with a little food envy!

                        I met friends on a Thursday night. Had the caesar salad which was very good. Friend had hamburger which was good. The outdoor space is really nice. Lots of room and decorated very nicely. On Thursday night's Steve Knill performs and he was excellent. He sang great songs that we really enjoyed during our meal. We'll be back on another Thursday night for sure!

                        Food was excellent. Service was good though level expect from a bistro and not the elevated experience you would expect at this price point. Wonderful live music, but a bit loud. Great outdoor space however all very casual and not what might expect at this price point. Prices VERY HIGH for modern comfort food and bistro style setting & service. While will go back will be limited at this pricing.

                        Enjoyed dinner with my husband and a friend. This was their first time to experience GiGi's and my second. The dinning room is beautifully decorated. The staff were very professional and friendly. They were attentive without being intrusive. My husband ordered the Steak Tartar and the Wedge Salad, and I ordered the Deviled Eggs and Roasted Jidori Chicken all of these dishes were amazing! Inventive twists on familiar favorites that were perfectly presented and delicious. Our friend ordered a pasta dish that looked great, but the pasta was undercooked - too much so to be considered al dente. It was an unfortunate situation, but everything else was so great we will give it another try. FYI: my first visit to GiGi's was for a lunch with friends and that entire experience was flawless.

                        We loved the restaurant and the food but the it is too expensive. We had lunch for four people two of us ordered cosmopolitans, and then we ordered burgers sandwiches and I had a salad with shrimp. The total bill was just under $200 without tip.

                        Beautiful ambiance, excellent service and loved the “Whole Shabam” Tower. Only negative comment is the high price of cocktails. I know it is where the money is but it really may deters one from haven’t a second.

                        Our first visit to Gigi’s. What a wonderful setting and very interesting menu for dinner. Food was delicious as were drinks. Our server Stella was a delight as was all the staff. Very accommodating and fun. Definitely a bright new addition to Palm Springs growing food scene!

                        People were wonderful. Drinks were fun and unique. Food was just OK and in general things seemed quite over priced for what you actually get. I would have a hard time going back.

                        We loved this little restaurant. The decor was so cute and the outside in the sun was perfect for our brunch with friends. Very quiet space with the perfect amount of Palm Springs vibes. The Food was pretty delicious too. We got the chicken wings and the burger as well as the quinoa salad. Overall pretty tasteful

                        Service was very good. Outdoor atmosphere was also very nice. Appetizers were good but our main courses were very disappointing. We skipped dessert. The prices were quite high. For two people our bill was over $200.

                        They need to train their staff more. Food very good and nice portions. A bit pricey. After the new year hopefully things will settle down.

                        We had a choice of 3 crappy tables (with a three week reservation). We finally settled for a table in the bar. The extra place settings were never removed nor were empty glasses. After we’re done ordering, one cocktail in, appetizer done, order in, 20 mins later, one of the entrees was 86’d in the kitchen (which means at 6:30, they never had the fish delivered), one of us had to make a hasty decision. Had to ask for the water to be refilled. Asked for wine with entrees, forgotten. Food was under cooked, we asked for the check and left. Would NEVER return.

                        The place is new and not run well. The chefs don’t even know the menu enough to execute the dishes. Every table was composing about missing ingredients, sides, etc. Food sent back. No one is in the kitchen to double check food. Too bad. Ambience gorgeous. Our waitress was mortified by what was happening. $71 for two hamburgers and a mimosa

                        This place is the best kept secret in Palm Springs. All I can say is go, go, go!. The food is absolutely superb it was the best steak tartare I’ve ever had and I’ve had it lots of places. The wedge salad was beautiful and delicious. The service was like being taken care of by family. I am in no way affiliated with this place but you’ve got to give it a try you’ll love every minute of it. Did I say how beautiful it is?Gorgeous! OK it’s a little on the spending side but everything worthwhile is.

                        one disappointment was that menu items on the website were not available, even a particular wine was no longer offered. strongly suggest they update their website. food was not as good as I expected, chips with Gigi dip were limp, not suitable for dipping. Entree was okay, Salmon, but had really wanted Lobster pasta from website. value for the money....not for me

                        The ambience is spectacular. It really reflects a Palm Springs mid century vibe that any one of the rat pack would love. Noise level moderate and perfect for this venue. Too quiet would be weird. Service is really good and you could tell they wanted to please. Sadly the food isn’t consistent*, especially considering the price point , which is high. Like $$$$ high. Figure at least $100-$125/pp unless you don’t drink alcohol, which in this sort of place would also be weird! One small nitpick. We were a party of six and almost double tipped as we weren’t aware a 20% gratuity is automatically added. Luckily we reviewed the bill, something I usually don’t do but did because the total was so high. I had the steak, It was somewhat dry and not flavorful. Others had salmon, chicken, and the pasta special. Those were good, but not great , which at this price point they should have been. So… Ambience ***** Service **** Food *** Value **

The food was fantastic, highly recommend getting the hors d’oeuvres tower, it was all delicious and a fun way to not have to choose only a couple. Our servers would kind and attentive, our water glasses where never below half filled and we were even given complimentary champagne when we arrived. We can’t wait to come back!
