Another outstanding dinner, even on the patio when the temp. outside was 46 degrees. With the heaters and the mostly enclosed structure, it was quite tolerable! The Seafood Cappellini was wonderful, as was the Apple Cake dessert.

Great service and food! The outdoor seating was heated to a perfect temperature level, even in 40 degree weather. Five stars to the staff, management and owners for providing great food while keeping everyone safe!

Food was good as usual. This was our first dine-in experience here since the pandemic. We dined on the patio. The service was good, though our server was clearly tired. They were out of the desert on the special, but the bourbon pound cake was delicious.

It felt very safe to eat at in theses times. All the workers wore gloves and masked. The other dinners also wore mask when they weren’t at the table

While the outside dining felt appealing at first it proved to be a bad choice. Lighting was atrocious (had to use our phones flashlight feature to read the menu) and diners who came after us and sat right next to our table (when there was plenty of room to be socially distanced) were loud and obnoxious. Food was very good as was the service but apparently the pandemic has affected their profit margin since prices seemed to be quite higher than we remember versus the last time (pre-pandemic) we were here. I would recommend but with the caveats mentioned in this review.

We were celebrating my birthday and wanted a restaurant with outdoor dining. The tent was perfect especially with the nearby heater. Food was delicious especially the Praline Pound Cake dessert!

We enjoy going to City Gate Grille. The food for the most part was good. The main entree Steak & Mushroom Risotto had some flavor of burnt veggies that carried over into the majority of the dish. The butternut squash soup was wonderful. The waiter was very nice and accommodating but he appeared to have too many tables.

The food at City Gate is amazing. We had the appetizers of tenderloin skewers and bacon shrimp. Both were delicious. The staff is even better. Our server Miguel was friendly and attentive. The Covid protocols are meticulously followed.

This was the first that me & my lady went out in months due to the Covid-19 situation & let me just say that I couldn’t be more impressed with the steps that they’ve made in order to not only adjust with the times that we find ourselves in, but the service that was provided could not have been better. When you first enter in, with a mask of course, you’ll step on this very cool machine that takes your temperature to make sure you’re not ill - takes about 10 seconds & then you’re good to go. I actually dined inside & it was a nice intimate setting & quite frankly, a nice change of pace from the usual noise that comes with being in a restaurant. The capacity was limited & other people were seated quite of bit of distance away from from me. Waiters/waitresses all had on masks & maintained their distance which was great to see them following protocol. Now with that out of the way, the food was absolutely delicious. Needless to say I’ll definitely be going back very soon because they truly deserve the support from everyone. 5 stars for sure.

While this restaurant can be expensive I have never found it to be overpriced. I always know that I am going to eat amazing quality food as well as very generous portions of side dishes including appraisers and salads. When I need to have a quiet romantic date night with my wife City Gate is always my go to.

We ate outside where they had a nice heater nearby. The service was excellent: the server got a cushion for me when I mentioned that the metal chair was very cold. We had a delicious meal and would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Terrific restaurant! Wonderful food, excellent desserts, attentive and friendly service! We felt really safe with the Covid safety measures that they’ve taken.
Loved the lamb, the sirloin risotto, the salmon, and of course the steaks! The pecan cake was outstanding!
Great cocktails as well!

Great family time, our waiter Miguel was very attentive and provided excellent service. Food was very good. My only complaint was allowing customers to come in shorts baseball hat and gym shoes. I understand that revenues are needed, however I have always dined here as it it was considered a little on the upscale side. Dress code should be enforced. Especially for the $$$ to dine. That was a turn off!
