We accidently went to this restaurant. We had reservations for the restaurant next door but when we walked into Gigi's we decided to stay. We LOVED the atmosphere and the food. Never got the name of the hostess (she is the sister-in-law of the owner) but she was fabulous! We sat at the counter and enjoyed the food (delicious) and our chats with the hostess and Elias, one of the cooks. We will tell everyone we know to go to Gigi's if they go to San Francisco.

I stopped in on Friday for lunch. I also wanted to watch baseball so i asked the waitress if she could bring my plate to the bar next door. I swear to God, she said ""Sure"".
A few minutes later, in walks the waitress who announces to the whole bar, ""I'm looking for the Spoiled Brat who ordered a plate"". I was rather surprised and said ""Excuse me?"". So she said again, ""I'm looking for the Spoiled Brat who ordered a plate"".
At this point, everyone in the bar is silent and everyone is looking at me. The bartender is flabbergasted and I feel about 3 inches high. So I again say ""Excuse me?"" and she again says ""I'm looking for the Spoiled Brat who ordered a plate"".
I spoke to the manager who said, this is just the way we talk here. I think she's been watching ""Jersey Shore"" too much.
Gigi's is a must restaurant to visit and experience....located on Green Street in North Beach, it's consistently quality seafood...fresh and fabulously prepared...either Picata-style, grilled, or fried....love the clam chowder and shrimp and crab salad! Very casual, but Gigi, the colorful proprietor, makes your usual wait in line a fun time for all...small, but great seafood ....I thoroughly encourage any and all of you who may read this review, to give Gigi's a try.....you will have a great time, and a wonderful meal...lunch or dinner!

Seafood, as the name suggests, so if seafood is not your thing - you might reconsider. I love this place. A gem. Very simple in the interior and the menu, but delicious all the way. Sand Dabs are great. Considering they are hard to come by, their simple preparation is a pleasant and delicious surprise. The linguini is great too - esp the linguini with clams. Go with a healthy appetite, start with the simple yet always satisfying dungeness crab and oysters to whet the palate and move on from there. The atmosphere is comfortable and the staff friendly and attentive. What more can you want? Just know that it's cash only - but there are ATMs all around, so that should not be a problem.

Good north beach spot if you like pasta, oysters and little necks. They have a decent wine list and the staff is personality plus. Belly up to the bar and enjoy! The sand dabs don't need a thing except a bit of sea salt. The oysters cost a buck each. You might wonder what kind of oyster you can get for a buck but I'll tell you they are terrific. We recently had the linquine and clams and it was terrific. The ambiance is OK and on occasion the music can be a bit loud.
