WOW!Just a great experience. The food was terrific, beautifully presented, staff was friendly and knowledgable. It's a small restaurant, which I prefer, noise level made conversation with dinner guests pleasant. Gabardine will be remembered when we next visit San Diego.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fine dining experienceWe enjoy returning here and dining here. The tomato salad was divine, the oysters fresh, tasty and just the right chewiness, the carafe sizes of their wines made a two wine dinner experience delightful. We enjoy thi place so much more than the overcrowded Herringbone.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSam did his usual great jobSam did his usual great job of making us feel at home. The staff is a great part of the reason we return, they are so friendly and great at their jobs. Which of course is serving great food. We started with the Mushroom Sauté, very good and a good portion for two. I had the Baquetta bass and it was delicious and my sister had the burger with avocado and jalapeños and it was very good.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmond Sticky BunYou simply must try it. I assure you it is worth the calories. Then the Crab Omelet. You will not be disappointed. Our server was very friendly and attentive.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!Bottomless mimosas for $10? I'm there! I had a deal from NBC-The Goods-$20 for $40. It made for a great value. I had the crab omelet which was excellent-very fresh and sweet crab. The potatoes on the side were perfectly cooked and it was a good portion for the price. We met the sous chef and he gave us a sticky bun on the house=)I live in the East County so it isn't exactly convenient, but I would definitely dine here again.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFun brunch menu. Had my daughterFun brunch menu. Had my daughter in a carseat & hostess & waiter were very accommodating. 2 blocks away from small farmers market on Sundays. Cute place to go for a relaxing meal.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFun nightIt was a girls night out. Service was great. Everyone very friendly and accommodating. We like a leisurely dinner with lots of conversation. We were never rushed. Great deal on wine the night we went. Only problem they ran out of the wine we were drinking. But not to fear we found another that was even better Price and quality of the food was excellent. Love it .. Will be back.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA tremendous dining experience.A tremendous dining experience. Great food, great service and very reasonable prices. Very highly recommended.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!The GM, Lindsay helped me and she was great!!! Good portion size! great ambiance!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGabardine is excellent--My only objection is the $2 charge for what turned out to be dry pieces of toast. Prices are quite high at Gabardine, and I think that the bread should be complementary. The food was quite delicious, of course. We had lobster and bisque and the lobster/potato/clam special last Thursday evening. A delightful dinner.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Tuesday Night DinnerWhat a nice surprise! Met a girlfriend for dinner and was greeting by a wonderful server, Pilar, and had an outstanding experience. Half price wine on Tuesdays too. We shared a fresh green and grapefruit salad, scallops, entre with lobster side with truffle fries - YUM.
We chatted for 2 hours, never felt rushed or uncomfortable. Definitely will go again! Have been to both Seersucker and Herringbone - love Gabardine!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGab Bar DineThree generations of ladies for Mother's Day brunch. It was a beautiful day made even better by Gabardine. The endless Mimosa's are incredible and had us all gabbing away. We had a fantastic time and everything was delicious. My oldest daughter who has been drawn by the culinary arts for some time, was ecstatic to see that Brian Malarkey is the chef and that he was there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother Day DinnerService was very good when we kept adding appetizers and different soft drinks. Very respectful and kind. The perfect amount of attention to our needs. Didn't interrupt all the time but kept our water glasses full. Shrimp and grits great!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRemains terrificThis was a return visit. We liked it so much the first time and wanted to see if they retained the standards they had set for our mouths and our minds. Indeed they have. Had we known that Tuesdays were also 59% off on selected (very good) wines, we might have come back even sooner. Well done Gabardine.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunchFirst time trying out for brunch. The shell fish dish was great. Mussels and clams were so big and plump and fresh. We were full otherwise would order bread to soap up the juice!
The fish and chips were outstanding. Fresh cod and batter was exquisite. Fries with truffle well done ....can't stop eating !
The crab omelette was nothing exciting/special.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the Thursday eveningWe enjoyed the Thursday evening Shellfish Feast very much. Everything was great... a tad noisy.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and very goodVery good food and very good service every time I go.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe come to Gabardine all theWe come to Gabardine all the time. It's our favorite local spot for non-pretentious fine dining and seafood. This was our first time there for brunch, and it was just as amazing as the dinners we always enjoy.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first but not last visit.Our first but not last visit. Waiter was more than willing to modify first course and the fish of the day was great but slightly on the skimpy side. Overall quite enjoyable.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGabardine BrunchWe visited Gabardine on Sunday for the brunch; Lindsay was our server and she made our Sunday into a fabulous event. Excellent customer service which was topped off by some amahzing dishes...we had the caprese with the powdered olive oil which was so divine and that transitioned into the pork chop with cheesy grits and eggs; wow, this dish was so good. We finished off with the Pt.Loma French Toast am I am still reeling from the flavors of cinnamon, cream cheese, and the most delictable maple syrup I have ever had. The bottomless mimosas were alittle on the warm flat side, and we had to find a chair that was not totally uncomfortable, but everything else, including the Tahitian Tea was really fabulous!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent!!

It was an excellent dining experience complete with excellent food and lots of adult beverages! About the only caveat I would put on the food is the delicious eggs benedict were not large in portion size (I was warned!) An overall excellent choice for the Sunday brunch action. Thank you Gabardine, it will not be our last visit!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was tasty beyondEverything was tasty beyond expectation and the service was impeccable!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had five different entrees.We had five different entrees.
