Food was awesome per usual! I just wish they offered the original creme brulee in addition to the seasonal flavors. I’m sure I’m not the only one who enjoys the traditional recipe. Thank you for the delicious food and great hospitality, we will be back!

We meet with another couple for dinner and we're able to hold several conversations without having to raise our voices.

The food was absolutely delicious, but over priced. My fiancé ordered 6 oysters in the half shell. However, she received 6 shells, but only 5 oysters. I ordered a $9 crab cake that was only 2" by 1", and over 50% of it was the cheap breading. Not worth $5, let alone $9. My New York Strip was cooked to perfection! It was delicious. The green beans and sweet potato sides were quite tasty. I do wish they had the option of butter and brown sugar for the sweet potatoes.

I was there on a Friday night and the food was excellent, but there was a singer singing to karaoke tracks in the bar and he was WAY TOO LOUD. I felt like I was shouting to speak to my friends, and we weren't even in the bar area by where he was singing. That truly impacted our overall experience in a negative way. Any sort of music should be enhancing the ambiance of an already lovely space, not making people shout to the people at their table.

Loved the steaks! Great service!
Calamari so much better. Light & crispy coating.
Of course the dipping sauce is out of this world.

Disappointed in the calamari. It was basically deep fried crumbs & pieces. Not up to usual for sure.

We very much enjoyed our meal there, but the service left a lot to be desired. There were three of us for lunch, and although the waitress ( believe her name was Sierra) was initially very attentive, her level of interest and care fell off quickly. The restaurant was not very busy but it did take while a while for our food to arrive. I don't blame the waitress for this, but once we were served we never saw her again. She did not offer dessert but rather coffee and expresso. I ordered the expresso, but it took about 10 minutes to arrive . I asked for sweetener and my friend asked for a box. Neither came. We flagged down the manager for sweetener and a check. I will probably come again but hopefully will not have the same waitress.

Wonderful celebratory mid-week dinner. Steak for me, Grouper for my son - both specials. Dinner prepared perfectly. My plate was a bit packed with the loaded baked potato, grilled asparagus and steak - separate plates for the sides would of been nice. Service was great - courteous, attentive and engaging. A very nice evening and will be back for sure.

We enjoyed a beautiful fall night on the patio. As always the crab cake appetizer was excellent. I mixed it up and had the crispy eggplant over pasta and my husband had the ribs. Our server Miguel recommended them and they did not disappoint. They were meaty and fell off the bone.

As always, the service, food, and ambiance were excellent. You are able to have quiet conversation while enjoying a well prepared meal. The menu is pretty much the same, but, they always make subtle changes to add new flavors. With there wine selection you are always able to get a great pairing.

We went for our 34th Anniversary and were disappointed that the restaurant did nothing special to help us celebrate, even though they knew we were celebrating. Food was great as normal and service top notch. One of the wait staff was noisily sweeping the leaves on the patio, we ate outside, during our meal. It was very obnoxious and took away from the atmosphere.

I've always tell people I've never had a bad meal at City
Gate Grille but last night was the rare exception my meal was lukewarm at best and my beef was tough, the rest of the people had better meals. The cake they brought out for my birthday was dry and we left most of it with four people. I feel this was an exception and my wife and I will continue to come.

Previous customer many times of CityGate, had another great experience for a special occasion (anniversary). Excellent food specials, attentive service, noise level was a bit higher than normal due to full dining room with a few larger groups. Definitely recommend for a great dinner experience.
