Wonderful food, attentive service and a cozy, casual atmosphere await at CityGate Grill. After a near perfect Caesar salad, I chowed down on a spectacular lamb shank while my wife enjoyed the Chilean sea bass. Excellent quality and well-priced wine by the glass selections enabled us to match our meals perfectly. We will be back soon to try their prime steaks and more.

NYE 7:30pm reservations, seated promptly friendly front staff. Surprisingly restaurant wasn’t busy. Generally good food and service. Disappointed was Rushed through dinner! Appetizers, salads and entrees were brought out within seconds of placing order. Pork chop ordered Med served raw. Would’ve been nice to have a relaxing evening.

Went New Year's Eve. Perfect atmosphere. Great food. Noise level was great until the music
started about 8:00pm. We were sitting close to the music, therefore a little distracting but still ok.
Didn't stay until 12:00. But was there before on NYE until midnight and somewhat low key party
atmosphere. Perfect for us.

I ordered steak and lobster special. The lobster was amazing. The steak was disappointing. It was too tough even though I ordered it medium rare as the waiter suggested.

Had never been here before and only picked due to the location being in between our two locations for an office dinner. Most excellent food and service.. slightly on the pricey side.. but you get what you pay for! I would definitely go back.

Our first visit. Tables and upholstery looked a little run down. The steak was good; the salad leaves were stale. The wine list is ordinary. Our server was extraordinarily good. Unlikely to go again.

We were celebrating our Anniversary. Our server, Miguel, was outstanding. He helped to make the dinner special. The food was amazing. The scallop appetizer was incredible. We have fined here several times and have never been disappointed.

Our first time a CityGate Grille. Three of us had our Thanksgiving dinner there. The food was excellent. I loved the roasted Brussels sprouts and my sister and husband like the ham and green beans. Dessert was the delicious pumpkin pie for them, and I had the vanilla cheesecake. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. We liked the design of the space. We plan to return soon.

Dinner at CityGate has always been a lovely surprise. Calamari was excellent, as was the beet salad and avgolemono soup! Lamb shank and rack of lamb were well prepared, as were the sides. Some of the entrees tend to be a bit pricey, but there are some lovely moderately priced dishes. Monday was a very quiet night, but other nights have music. All in all, another good dinner at CityGate.

When we first got there it was a long time between seating and drink orders. Then a long time between when they took drink orders and they were served. Then awhile until they took our orders and food was delivered. We stayed until they closed and music was lovely. Food good.

This is the perfect restaurant to make everyone happy. They have a wide variety of high quality food, from decadent to healthy. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. This environment blends the comforts of casual dining with the nuances of fine dining. Live music is also fun to enjoy in the bar area. Definitely a place you will want to return to again.
