I went here recently with my husband and boys. I'd read about it in Zagat so my expectations were very high. The Monday night dinner is a great value with really fresh ingredients. My husband said the steak was perfectly done and the Jidori chicken I had was very moist with fresh braised vegetables. Highly recommended!

It's a cozy bistro that has 2 floors of dining space. I recommend getting a table downstairs by the windows, so you can enjoy the Santa Monica nightlife. Great food, great wine selection. They'll accommodate special requests before hand for your special occasion. The staff was wonderful and had a great time!

The food at Jiraffe is very tasty. The atmosphere is casually chic. The servers are helpful and knowledgeable. We have enjoyed the food there on our different visits over the years.

Perhaps I head high expectations for JiRaffe but I had read a lot on the web about it and it seemed like it would be a really good place. Maybe it was an off night last night but my wife and I had just an ok dinner. I started with the braised tomato tart which is supposed to be their signature appetizer. I guess it was ok but it didn't really taste like much. My wife had the mushroom ravioli which was pretty good. For main courses I had the lamb, which again was just ok, and my wife had the steak which was about the same. The chocolate cake and coffee were very good. With two glasses of good wine it set us back $175. We could have gone to Mastro's for the same amount and had a much better meal I think. It's not bad, it's just not great.

PROS: Good wine, nice ambience
CONS: Just ok, pricey for what you get

Excellent French-Californian food. Excellent--and unpretentious--service. And I hear great things about their Monday night Bistro menu (3 courses, under $30) too, though I have yet to try it yet.
