Great for a few hours for kids under 10 but do not recommend for birthday parties. Customer service was horrible and party was basically ruined for birthday girl. Spend your money elsewhere.

I never thought I'd bother to write a review of a restaurant, it didn't seem worth the time, but my experience at this hovel was so bad, I had to. Where shall I begin? We had to valet park. Valet??? For a glorified Chuck e Cheese? We waited over an hour for a table and we were never called. I can't speak to the quality of the food since we left before we tried it. What I CAN speak to however is the safety of the play area. The toys were shabby , but I suppose that is to be expected. But there were waaaayyyy too many kids for it to be safe. I would say there were about 25-30 kids in an approx. 800 sq. foot area. The bigger kids were running around like crazy ( just doing what kids do) and one almost seriously hurt my 2 year old with his rough horse play. I'm not blaming the kid, he was just acting like a boy, nor am I blaming the ONE poor teenager they had working there. I blame the establishment. I am a teacher and you simply cannot stick that many (mostly unsupervised) children in that small an area and expect them to "play nice" This place was a complete hazard and I strongly recommend you never go there.

I am a mother 4 year old twins. I had been looking for a place like giggles N Hugs since my kids turned 1. This place is truly magical. There is no where in town where i can go with my kids and eat some of the best food i have ever tasted and have my kids play at the same time. I go and turn on my laptop as they have WIFI and get my work done while my kids have the time of there life. As i said the food is great and healthy as they sneak veggies into kids favorite foods. I had a Beet Salad that was as good as if not better than the one i got at Spagos. The staff is unbelievably friendly and the entire place is so beautiful with murals of Mermaids, Tigers and Dinosaurs all over the walls. The play area was filled with all kinds of toys , rides and video games for kids including a Nintendo WII. We got there around 2pm on Friday with only about 10 families there. The Beautiful girls in the play area did some face painting (for FREE i might add) and played games with my twins and the other kids. At about 3pm they asked all the kids to come out of the play area for 20 minutes while they sanitized and cleaned the entire play area. Once they allowed everyone back in we got a chance to meet and take pictures with A few characters in costume ( Mickey and Minnie surprised us). It was magical. We had so much fun that my twins decided that they wanted to stay for Disco night which is every Friday night at 6pm. I have never written a review before but we had so much fun and this place is so great that i had to take the time to let you all know on this and other sites. I also wrote the same review on Yelp to let all the parents know about this incredible oasis for parents with toddlers.

we came by last friday night for the first time with high expectations having read up on the website what this place had to offer and i have to say it definitely delivered and more! we came by just before 6pm and a DJ was setting up on stage- we had no idea we'd have such a fun night. The show started promptly at 6 with music and some of my kids favorite games and to top it all off lots of bubbles. I have a girl and a boy and both loved it. My husband was even dancing in the play area with them.

we all ordered food, which was delicious (which you don't tend to get when you enter anywhere that pertains to be "kid friendly or kid oriented". it felt wonderful not to be patronized as a parent with kids that just want to run around while you enjoy a meal out. the staff were very warm and friendly and all seemed to genuinely have as much fun working as the kids had playing.

In the middle of the disco we had a huge surprise as Mickey and MinnieMouse entered together.it was truly magical and so unexpected. A really nice touch as my kids haven't been to Disneyland yet and this was their first experience with live characters! I think the parents could give a knowing smile to the Play Area girls as they mysteriously disappeared before the characters came out.. that's dedication!

I never usually write about restaurants online but as a parent I feel compelled to share my thoughts on a place that has tapped into a previously unfulfilled void in the market for families.

This has got to be the only restaurant that both the kids and parents want to go to. I cannot think of another restaurant like that.

Think of it, it keeps the kids busy and it has great food for grown ups and healthy menu for kids as well. Meanwhile, your kid/s are having the time of their lives.

The only drawback is that there is only one location. I would recommend to the owners to establish more locations throughout the city.

I recently met a friend here with my 20 month old son and we loved it. We felt right at home. The staff is extremely nice and accomodating. The food is excellent and the play are is safe and clean with a variety of toys to keep the kids occupied for hours. My son loved it and didn't want to leave. I highly recommend this place to all parents of little ones. It was just so nice to relax, have a cup of coffee, eat lunch and watch my kid play in a safe and fun place. I just wish they'd open one up in Hollywood now closer to where I live.

I was very excited to try Giggles n' Hugs, but completely disappointed and will never go back. I took my friend's child there for his first Birthday as part of our Birthday day together. I was astonished on how over crowded the play area was. I would never have allowed my child to play amongst so many kids crowded in--obviously we did not go in the play area. Isn't there some kind of health code or at least an ethical code by the owner/manager? I personally thought it was way too dangerous. I was also astonished by the high prices for food--that's not including the play area costs and $2.50 for parking. This is not even a full service restaurant. In addition, the food was awful tasting. And, they brought out one meal and 10 minutes later brought out the next--way too long if you have a small child and it was his lunch that came out last! I also was appalled by the patrons eating there. While I understand that $2.50 for a fountain soda is expensive, taking soda in the cups provided for water is not a good lesson to teach your children--both ethically and morally. Everyone around me did this. The worst part of my experience here was the manager/owner who went around to each table asking if they enjoyed their meals and how everything was--except me. I tried to figure out why and realized that I was the only non-Persian eating there and the only person not asked. This is racial discrimination in my book--something I've never experienced and was shocked by. Oh wait, it gets worse. I told said manager/owner that it was the child's Birthday when he announced Elmo was coming out. He did absolutely nothing. Completely non-responsive, unfriendly, and I would have to say--rude. There was obviously no Happy Birthday, no balloon, cookie, cupcake--NOTHING. P.S.. I noticed a helium tank and strings behind the counter. Any other restaurant would have done something. This was the worst customer service I ever experienced. This place does a lot of business and certainly doesn't need mine, but they definitely lost a potential customer and I will continue to let others know my horrific experience here.

Never again. What if you are there with friends and family and you just want to catch up on family news, while your little one is playing with the other parent in the play area. We found out that they actually enforce a 1 hour maximum on all tables. They claimed we'd been there for much longer than one hour, but I know what time we got there and we were seated for just over an hour. If you are going to have a rule like that you better give everyone a silly little timer to put on their table so that they can stand up the minute it goes off!!! There was no line out the door...
Food came promptly, It was OK. Nothing amazing, nothing awful, just OK. The checkout women were very nice, as were the busboys, but others there should consider some lessons in etiquette. Go to VIP Seafood instead, they are friendly, the food is better.

ACTUALLY, that last review is a lie. I work at Giggles n Hugs, I work directly with the kids in the play area and I'm there almost every day. I was there all day that last review was posted. There was no vomit anywhere, and nobody had any bugs in there food. giggles n hugs is a great place for families. We have an amazing staff and we all genuinely love working with children. The only down side is that we have to see kids cry every time they leave! If you haven't been to Giggles n Hugs yet, I suggest coming for Disco Night (every Friday night @6pm) our DJ Disco Joe plays games with the kids and plays fun songs that anyone can dance to! There is always adult supervision in the play area, either myself or a few other girls will be in there playing with the kids, dancing, face painting, reading stories, or singing!
We have a full menu that includes pastas,salads, sandwiches, pizza, veggie/turkey burgers and lots more. Our food is healthy and organic, and we will modify any of our dishes just for you, we tend to have many picky eaters. our Giggles n Hugs family is very friendly, from our chef who will personally bring you your dish, to our cashiers who sing and dance, and our bus boys who will make sure you and your child have everything you need, with a smile included :) and above all, the creators of Giggles N' Hugs, Joey and Dorsa Parsi. They are the soul of this brilliant family restaurant. They have two of the sweetest little girls that I have ever met, so they understand what parents and children want. Since I've been here i haven't had to work a day in my life. I've fallen completely in love with Giggles N' Hugs, and I encourage everybody, of all ages come visit us. Just last weekend we had a birthday party for a 40 year old!! This restaurant is for everybody, of all ages from 1 to 100. One of our regular customers is a 72yr old woman who can barely walk comes in almost every day to have our cheese pizza and a coffee. She doesn't come with any children, just alone. She comes for the company and friendly atmosphere. So I believe with all my heart, that everybody needs some Giggles n' Hugs :)

ACTUALLY, that last review is a lie. I work at Giggles n Hugs, I work directly with the kids in the play area and I'm there almost every day. I was there all day that last review was posted. There was no vomit anywhere, and nobody had any bugs in there food. giggles n hugs is a great place for families. We have an amazing staff and we all genuinely love working with children. The only down side is that we have to see kids cry every time they leave! If you haven't been to Giggles n Hugs yet, I suggest coming for Disco Night (every Friday night @6pm) our DJ Disco Joe plays games with the kids and plays fun songs that anyone can dance to! There is always adult supervision in the play area, either myself or a few other girls will be in there playing with the kids, dancing, face painting, reading stories, or singing!

This place is disgusting. We found a bug in our pizza and all the manager cared about was whether somebody else saw it! He just blew us off. My friend's son slipped in some other child's vomit and hurt his arm. If you love your little ones, please don't take them to this restaurant.

This place is super rad! Reminded me of what being a kid was like. While it was the little things that made me happy as a kid...I don?t think one could go wrong with a live DJ with ultra cool sunglasses, Royal Princesses all over the place (I'm 24 and seriously debating stealing one away for my next birthday party) Incredible pizza (the crust is the perfect amount of thin, and the sauces and cheese make for a perfect mouth watering blend) And out of the world macaroni and cheese that makes even the whole foods macaroni and cheese pale in comparison.
One thing that amazed me is the energy of the people that make this place happen. I heard that they had already put together three kid parties previous to the one I attended that day and they still managed to stay incredibly upbeat, personable, and very service oriented. Everyone had a great energy and I have nothing but utmost compliments for the owners over there.
If you have kids, seriously, go there now. Drop everything you doing, move your business meetings till tomorrow, call the wife, tell her you?re going to Giggles and Hugs. If you don?t have kids, do the same, head over there, and try incredible pizza.
Rumor has it; the older businessmen crowd around there sneak in and get to go boxes of their pizza, most times with overly large Aviator sunglasses and hats to prevent people from recognizing them because the pizza is soo good. Family Kid Restaurant or not, this place is sure to make everyone happy.

I haven't even been yet but one of my "mommy" friends loved it.
I just had to comment about the fact that so many reveiwers had only one review therefore it must be a scam.
HELLO - these are parents with young children (myself included) How often do you think we get to go out to eat??? So kuddos for them for writing a review. There are so few options for dining out with a 17 month old and I plan on trying this place this weekend.

My kids LOVED this place! I really liked the food and was happy to learn that they "sneak" healthy vegetables into the kids meals. My kids are aged 2 to 10 and they all had a great time. I met the owner who was very nice (and good looking) and went out of his way to make sure each of my kids got a special treat from his treasure box of candy and small toys. I would highly recommend this place to anyone with young children.

My family and I went there on a Friday night, for the disco...it was SO much fun! I couldn't believe how amazing the staff was. EVERYBODY there LOVES kids and were SO good to us & our 3 kids. We felt like we were in Disneyland! There was awesome music, kids & parents dancing in the play area. The best part of the whole place was the FOOD!! I had the most amazing chinese chicken salad, my husband had the BEST pizza of his life, My kids had mac n' cheese w/squash in it (couldn't tell & ate it all). Also, the kids' portions are huge, so 2 of my kids shared one mac n' cheese and still there was left overs. I have no idea what some of these people are saying that it was expensive. I payed $20 for 3 kids to play, dance & have a BLAST for 3 hrs!! I payed $6.95 for TWO kids to eat dinner...NOWHERE can you feed two kids EXCELLENT, high quality, food w/veggies in it for $3.50 each!! Where do these people who think its expensive normally eat?? I took my kids to the mall & I payed $0.75 for EACH one of those little rides that lasts about 4 seconds!! I ended up paying about $20 for 3 kids to be entertained for about 10 minutes!! And my 6 yr. old boy was SO BORED. And yes, I still had to BUY dinner! And for the person who said everyone who wrote a review only reviewed one place so it's fishy...the people who wrote a bad review also wrote one review. We aren't restaurant critics. I have NEVER written a review before & probably won't again, but i HAD to share w/all the families out there about my AMAZING experience at Giggles N' Hugs. Obviously, the people complaining, don't get out much. Anyways, we had a BLAST, and more importantly, I got to spend Friday night w/my kids, yet my husband and I got to dance together, eat AWESOME food and actually feel like we were ALL having a great time, as opposed to us sacrficing so the kids have fun, like ususal. GREAT place and pretty damn cheap if u ask me. I would've paid $20 for the $9.95 chinese chicken salad I had!
