    Changed reservations for 4 from Thursday evening to Wednesday directly with restaurant with ease. On Wednesday, seated with guests, drinks ordered from smiling waitstaff. Calamari rubbery, sent back. Ordered meals. 2 lobsters specials (whole lobsters), fish & chips, and salmon dinners. Prior to food coming out, one lobster dinner changed to Lobster tail only. 3 meals arrived. Lobster tail meal did not arrive until others were nearly finished with eating. Overall service was unusually slow on a night when restaurant was mostly empty.

    We had a 7 p.m. reservation and we showed up about 20 minutes early. We had requested a window seat and they were immediately ready to seat us. We changed our minds to sit outside and they immediately accommodated. Our server took a moment to greet us but the area was busy. ...... He was a little soft spoken, which made him a little hard to understand, but was overall attentive. Great food, good drinks, nice atmosphere, made it for Great night.

    On Saturday September 20 I went with my family to Gladstone's Long Beach. It was nice. Easy to make a reservation on the way there. When we got there we were immediately seated and a waiter came to our table. He was very nice and kind. Everything about the restaurant was perfect although I wish they had more variety in the seafood options instead of just fish, shrimp, and lobster. We all order what we wanted and everything was perfect. Once my mother started eating I noticed a hair in her food. I immediately told her and we told our waiter. He took the plate and returned with another one and he took off the prices of our appetizer, drinks, and the food my mother had chosen. Although there was this minor problem everything was perfect.

    I must say that eating at Gladstone's in Long Beach is one of my favorite things to do. Sitting outdoors on the patio on a Sunday afternoon is a great way to spend a couple of hours. The food is always good and they keep rotating the fresh fish items so there is always something new to try.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I spent her Birthday weekend in Long Beach. My wife was interested in Seafood and was craving Oysters. I came across Gladstone's on line with good recommendations. I made reservations on line with ease, The Hostess even said Happy Birthday to my Wife. Ambiance outside was awesome. Our waitress Jennifer greeted us and we asked about Oysters. She suggested the mixture of oysters. When the oysters came, (Bakers Dozen) they had been the smallest we have ever seen. Not a whole lot of meat in them. We split the big combo lobster, crab, shrimp, and clams. Very good portion for 2 people. Once our dinner was delivered we never saw our waitress again. She passed our table 7-8 times and helped the table behind and in front of us.

    I came here to take my daughter and granddaughter out for the evening on a special "Date Night" with the two of them. We found that the food was very good and a great selection to choose from on the menu. Our waiter, Blake, was very plesant and accommodating for eveything we asked of him. Due to a bad decision on my order, I sent it back, and the mgr., Melaya, came over to our table and made sure that I was satisfied. She saw to it that I didn't have to wait very long to receive my dinner, We were offered desert on the house also. We met a very nice couple with their small child at the table next to us and ended up having drinks with them at their table once we finished our meal. I will definitely return.

    Made a reservation several days prior to Aqualink catamaran from Los Alamitos Bay to Rainbow Harbor. I wasn't certain what time the boat would arrive, but Gladstones had a table ready for us, even thought we arrived earlier than our stated reservation. Our server OK'd separate checks and made sure we were able to catch a boat back without having to wait for our transactions to be completed...kuddos! Good food, fresh air and fantastic scenery!

    Had reservation for 4 people and asked ahead of time for an outside table with nice view; on arrival, did not get seated at a table with a nice view but an ok outside table in the shade. Disappointed because of the reservation request and the assurance of the requested seating. We asked for separate checks (2) and the server charged my bill with an appetizer that the other couple ordered and also served me a second wine (also) when the other party ordered a second wine--and I didn't order one and wasn't asked if I wanted another one. I didn't mention any of this at the time since I didn't want to make an issue of this in front of friends. Food was ok; service was good except for the errors mentioned.

    Seated outside on a Saturday night. Restaurant was busy as expected but server greeted us, rushing & clearly stressed out. Took drink & appetizer order. Apps took a very long time, causing the entire meal to be a disaster. Appetizer got delivered after a good 25 minutes if waiting. Then 1 minute later came our soup & salad and literally, 3 minutes later, server tried to deliver our entrees to us. We said take them back so we could actually eat all the other food that was now stacked on our table. 20 minutes later, delivered the same entrees to is, now cold and wilted looking. We refused them, manager apologized but the whole experience was horrible. We will never go back to this establishment.

    Had a reservation for the patio but unable to get a decent table when we arrived and settled for a window seat (nice view) inside the restaurant. Took an old friend from the east coast there to catch up and enjoy the marina. The service was good but the food was overpriced and mediocre. The dining room quickly filled with families with small (preschool) children. The 2 year old in the booth next to ours jumped a lot and made loud noises, which his parents ignored. The room sound level got to a point where we quickly ended our meal to continue talking outside. Not what we expected, especially for the price. Before you call me a old grump, I raised kids of my own and have grandchildren who were well behaved in many restaurants over the years.

    Gladstone's in Long Beach is located in a beautiful setting on the water. Unfortunately, the food and service was lousy. The only thing I can recommend is the bread they bring out to the table. We tried the Ahi Poke Tower as an appetizer. It was tasteless and we had to ask the waiter for soy sauce which took him 15 minutes to bring to our table. We ordered the lobster and shrimp linguini which we told them to take back as the fish was mealy. Another friend ordered the hamburger and it was dried out. There are too many good restaurants out there for me to waste my money on mediocre food...I won't be back!

    Gladstone's in Long Beach was one of the best seafood restaurants we have visited in a long time. We were on a weekend vacation at the Pike and decided to visit. We were fortunate enough to get outdoor seating and there was some live music, which added to the enjoyment. Our fish dinners were prepared just right and even the drinks were special. When in Long Beach, we will be sure to revisit Gladstone's.
