We've been trying to come for lunch 1/month all through Covid. However, the menu doesn't change much, there's not a lot of variety.

Such a nice restaurant with delicious food and really attentive and personal service. We are never disappointed.
Miguel, our waiter, is fabulous. So nice, knowledgeable, and warm. He is so attentive and is such a professional.
The pastry chef always has some extraordinary desserts to try. Really a fabulous restaurant which we always come to when we are in town visiting.

Our waiter, John, was attentive.
Our sandwiches were divine.
The half price wine on Wednesday was an added bonus.

Food was amazing (had the lamb shank) and very much enjoyed the cocktails. Great signs of teamwork and good leadership. You can tell the talk about, training for, and practice customer service. Certainly planning on returning.

Dinner, as usual was incredibly delicious. I had the skirt steak and mushroom risotto and it was phenomenal. My husband had the braised lamb shank and it was fall off the bone tender. Service is impeccable as was our entire visit.

We went to City Gate to celebrate my sons birthday and brought my parents (their first time out since Covid)-we went early to avoid crowds and get in and out quickly. The server was really nice, we ordered and since we were literally the first people there figured it would be quick-almost 40 min later our dinner came (we only ordered 2 burgers and 2 fillet meals (one of which was on their specials menu) The burgers were fine, the fillets very average slightly cold little to no flavor and we ordered bearnaise sauce which was also cold and had no flavor at all. After dinner they brought my son a special dessert and the dessert I had pre ordered. Each part of the meal took them quite awhile. It was restaurant week so you would think they would have been really on top of their service and their fixed menus would showcase a really top notch menu-overall really disappointed.

We’ve wanted to try this place for quite a while and finally got around to visiting. I had the Skirt Steak with Risotto and it was absolutely perfect. The service and attention to the customer was literally second to none I’ve ever had. Great choice if you’re in the area!
