Have been to City Gate four times now and are sure we will return again. We celebrated our 50th wedding Anniversary with a small group of family. Outstanding celebration! The staff accomodated us with every request we made. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful (Miguel was our wait person), and the atmosphere is welcoming.

There was large group of men there possibly having a business meeting? They were rather loud. After they left it was much better.
Other than that the food and service were excellent. My assistant and I were taking five people from our largest customer and they all enjoyed their lunch. When we first sat down at the table I knocked my glass of water over which spilled and the glass broke! The staff was very gracious in cleaning it up. Thank you

City Gate has a number of GF options. I loved the steak risotto. I wish they had a GF bread to go with the oil and garlic that they offer with the regular bread. We really enjoy the evening jazz bands, especially if they play dancable tunes. A very nice evening out.

This was a double date with friends that had never been there. We have found that City Gate is a place we can take friends and family and not be disappointed. The wait staff remembered us and treated us very well. We will keep on our list of places we enjoy.

This was our second attempt at this restaurant...I thought the jazz band might improve atmosphere and service, it did not. The POOR service makes it impossible to enjoy the evening, given the prices. First, the gigantic menus are never removed from the table. The waiter felt like a kid being forced to serve without training. Also, he knew we had a birthday, so brought the free dessert without offering us a menu to order dessert for others. When we requested a menu, he brought ONE to be shared by 3, he said he had no more!!!
For a pricey evening it was an embarrassment since I gave them a chance. The music was good...but ruined by the service, or lack thereof.

We went to celebrate our 65th birthdays with my sister. Spent a lovely, leisurely dinner listening to the great jazz band. Wonderful shrimp appetizer followed by some amazing steaks and wine. They brought us each a dessert with a candle.

My wife and I have come to CityGate Grille for many special occasions. The food is always excellent. The scallops I had this time were amazing! They sometimes have live jazz, which is a nice treat. On other nights it's usually fairly quiet. We love going there and will continue to do so!

Very busy Saturday night. Restaurant almost full. Good service. Loved the roasted garlic and olive oil that is served with the bread. My wife really enjoyed the Barramundi. Good wedge salad. Tasty fried zucchini. Why do restaurants think we like kale? The swordfish was awful (good fish, terrible sauce.)

I was extremely disappointed that you were forcing Fox News on us. My friends and family abhor that station. Any other station would have been okay. (CNN, ABC, etc.)

I always enjoy the ambience, its a great atmosphere to relax and have a quiet conversation with your date. The food is always exceptional, and the wine and cocktail specials get everything off to a great start. There was a live band playing in the bar area that provided background music while still being able to have casual conversation.

Beautiful setting in a great dining room and bar. Some food needs work. Cesar salad is blandest ever. Change the dressing and offer a protein addition. Awful white anchovies. Music the last two times was much too loud. Everything else was very good. Felt a little rushed initially by the server.

If you want GREAT food in a very nice upscale atmosphere this is the place you want to go. I took my wife for our anniversary and the food and service was beyond amazing. I have never tasted red potatoes that good. The cream spinach was flavourful and the ribeye mouth watering. Then they topped off the night with an anniversary dessert. Oh yeah..the music was great too...we officially have a new spot.
