Excellent. – Visited Gigino's on Valentine's Day, a little skeptical and was overjoyed at the selection. The service and ambience were excellent, the food was great and very reasonable. I would highly recommend the asparagus appetizer with mascarpone and mozarella. Main course (pasta with a tomato based beef and veal sauce), although nothing TOO special was very tasty. Dessert (dipped strawberries and cream) was also excellent. View is amazing. I would suggest taking a cab. Parking is nowhere to be found.
Unbeatable View – Gigino's in Wagner Park is so enjoyable. The food is delicious. The service is fine and they allow you to enjoy the view. Its not the same if you have to sit inside. For the location, the prices are very reasonable.
GREAT view, good food, BAD service – The view is spectacular and the patio is a great place for a very relaxed lunch.
Unfortunately, that lunch can take a loooooong time as the waiters seem to forget food orders, forget drink orders, and forget to refill water glasses.
The food is quite tasty but a bit expensive for the setting.
Go for the view, and be patient – The mozzarella in the caprese was as fresh as I've ever had it, and the tomatoes were tasty. My entree of risotto with mushrooms left a bit to be desired, but everyone in the group of 10 was more-or-less pleased with their choices. Dessert was good, but not great.
The kitchen is too small to accomodate the seating, and our dinner took 3 hours. Staff was pleasant, relatively hard working, but a tad forgetful.
The view was gorgeous. you have the whole New York Harbor at your disposal. We went during the day, but I imagine at night it must be breathtaking.
If you're not in a rush and want to show someone a breathtaking view, hop on the 4/5 to Bowling Green.
Class Act – Gigino is a wonderful restaraunt in a beautiful setting. Views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty - what more could you ask for. Outdoor dining at its best. The service was very good, as was the food. The Grilled Goat Cheese Salad and Bruchetta were excellent, as was the Chicken Scallopine. One could not ask for a better atmosphere. Elegant but very casual dining! We're sorry we just found out about this restaurant - we will be going back.l
Icecream and balsamic vinegar? – This is the kind of place you'd like to take all your friends to and still keep a secret. The setting is casual and romantic. Prices are very good. The food is excellent! if you're daring, try the balsamic vinegar over icecream, it's wonderful!
Eat outdoors with a spectacular view – This is such a lovely, peaceful place to eat outside. The restaurant looks out over beautiful green lawns to the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. It is set far from the small street it's on, and there is no traffic noise.
The food is good, especially their more basic dishes, and the drinks are delicious.
This is a great place to take out-of-towners, and perfect for watching the sunset.
Love Lady Liberty – The view is spectacular, and the food is great. Wonderful strawberry daiquiries as well! Definitely worth the trip to Battery Park City! One of my favorite places in Manhattan.
