“More Hits Than Misses”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We enjoyed our second trip to Giffords last week. Four appetizers (pork spring rolls, terrific, fried oysters so so, mussels better.
Four entrees, steak frites excellent, salmon too, crab cakes lacking, pork special excellent.
One dessert shared, ice cream cake, terrific.
Nice ambience, good staff and a welcoming feeling. Looking forward to our third visit someday soon.

“Fun atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Had dinner there with friends. Noticed a very busy and nice bar on our way in. Downtown Kent. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Ordered the salmon noodle dish and it was healthy and well prepared.

“Great find for lunch”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

While in Kent for business, Gifford's was recommended to my friend and I for lunch. We split the grilled eggplant sandwich w/lemon chicken and each had a bowl of mushroom soup. Both were excellent; especially that sandwich. Looking forward to a return trip to CT just to go back to Gifford's. Staff was lovely.

Solid fare in a warm and congenial environment. There are options on the menu for every taste (pad thai, steak, roast chicken). I highly recommend the risotto!

“Great Place”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Four of us dined at Giffords last night. None of us had been there before and we're celebrating my birthday.
The décor is well done, the rooms comfortable. The staff was excellent . The food was terrific. One small problem arose and it was quickly and perfectly taken care of.
Yes, it is on the high end in price, but worth every penny. We all loved the restaurant and will definitely be back.
