Our waitress was so kind and helpful. She kept our water full and brought ranch out with the pizza which can easily get forgotten! She took my gluten allergy seriously … Spinato’s gf bread and gf pizza are the best out there! So so yummy. Everything was delicious and our friends that had never been were very impressed and loved everything we ordered. We will be back soon!

The White Rabbit Story:
Legend has it, Dr O’Hare began his practice in Gilbert in 1910. When prohibition became law in 1920, he saw opportunity. As a doctor, he began to prescribe “alcoholic concoctions” to his “patients” and opened his Apothecary (pharmacy) in 1920. Today, The White Rabbit lives on in Downtown Gilbert. Password and knowing the secret entrance are still required.

Cheers!

We believe in people. We believe in nourishment. We believe in family. We believe in love.

We believe that people are more than their job titles or their everyday struggles. We believe that everyone deserves a break from everyday stress. We believe you are worthy to be celebrated.

Since the beginning of time, from peasants to royalty, people required fine food & drinks to complete their festivities. We believe in celebrating you, celebrating life & slowing down to enjoy the finer things.

Our Chef-crafted menu offers unique dishes that bring Italian, Spanish and asian flavors to contemporary American staples. Award-winning mixologists offer an array of options including: an 80 bottle wine list, craft canned beer options, over 40 historically-driven classic cocktails & custom cocktails on draft.

This 1939 house, once disregarded by its community, is now repurposed into a gathering place. When you step into our house, you are home.

We had a great time and a great meal. I especially recommend the butter board with the Nudja butter! I enjoyed their striped bass with a lovely glass of chardonnay. For a cocktail, I ordered the Ramos gin fizz (in honor of Lizabeth Scott and Humphrey Bogart in "Dead Reckoning"). It was fantastic! Do yourself a favor and reserve a table!
