Drove there last Saturday, got recommended by friend. My wife loved the SeaFood Provencale, myself I order the Salmon it was terrific. We love our diner there with great wine and succulent dessert. We will go back often, hard to find place with great food, great service and great music...

Many crazy delicious pizza combinations you've never heard of before--my husband's favorite is the Provencal (which he says he never would have dreamed of putting in his mouth, let alone loving, except that he has learned to trust Stephan, the owner).

My favorites are the warm goat cheese salad (Stephan's mom's favorite snack, now mine, too), the terrine of pate (it's supposed to be an appetizer for several people, but sometimes I get it for dinner), rack of lamb that will melt in your mouth, and creme brulee. There's a chocolate and hazelnut ganache that's beyond amazing, but once I tasted the creme brulee, I can never resist it--and I'm a serious chocolate fiend.

Yummy sandwiches, quiches, and salads at lunchtime. This winter he had some amazing soups that I can't stop thinking about. I'm sad he took them off the menu for the summer--he changes the menu by season.

The atmosphere is really fun and warm. Stephan brings back interesting CDs from his trips back home, so on nights without live music, he plays music that I've never heard, and is fun to listen to. He comes out of the kitchen to talk to customers. Customers make friends with people at other tables. If it's your first visit, strangers will happily make suggestions about what you should order.

Great place! Our favorite.

we are recent transplants here in nc. Gigi's was a great find. who would have thought that a bistro like this would exist in youngsville! we are well traveled, and love the old world of france and italy; Gigi's is the real deal. Stephan, the owner, a native of Marseille, prepares all dishes with great care. we ate lunch here, on a whim, the day we closed on our new house, and have been eating here regularly ever since. Excellent northern and southern Mediterranian fare. Go! Eat! Enjoy!

We have been going to Gigi's since he opened.. We have watched the changes he has made and this is a great place to go and have a romantic dinner for 2.. He has specials dinners by reservations nad it is well worth every mouthful. Once you meet the staff and you will feel right at home.. Go out and enjoy and become a good friend..

This was a wonderful dining experience! The service was great, we brought a group of friends and the 1 waitress there took wonderful care of us, and the other patrons. There is only one chef and one waithress though so this isn't a stop in for a quick bite to eat type of lace, everything was made fresh, and cale HOT right out of the oven! We loved everything about Gigi's, the ambience is very romantic and the food was to die for! We will definelty be bringing more friends!

Some friends told us about Gigi's Bistro, so we decided to try it. We love it the food was very good from the Appetizers through the dessert we clean all our plates. Try the Rack Of Lamb so tender... My wife and I decided to bring friends to this wonderful place. The lounge feel of the place and the music plus plus plus...

A hole-in-the-wall that truly is... After looking through their website, one would expect a somewhat French flavor and ambiance.

Unfortunately, the location and furnishings are that of an out of doors flop, complete with inexpensive flooring that could easily house the nastiest of germs. The service was terrible, the wine had a bad cork (but the waitress insisted on serving the wine anyway), and it took nearly a half hour to prepare the meal. Speaking of the meal, portions were small, overcooked and generally a serious let down.

Oh, do not forget to leave a tip. If you leave a tip or a sub-standard tip the proprietor will chase you down in the street and become Peppi-le-Pue.
