    Service and cocktails were very good! Soup could have been warmer but we didn’t say anything to our server. Bit pricey for what we had but enjoyed overall

    Prime & Pearl is my new favorite place to eat in Gainesville. It’s on the higher priced side of restaurants in this area but I feel the prices are fair and well worth it when the food is this good. Oysters and the excellent steaks are hallmarks of this place, as the name suggests, but the menu is full of variety for all. There are some truly special menu items and the drinks are outstanding. A nice modern atmosphere.

    Our experience at Amelia’s was very nice! We ordered the Linguine Pesto and Tortellino Alfredo which were both delicious, as well as the Caesar Salad. Our server David was very kind and we got to choose a complimentary birthday dessert.

    Wonderful service from Brandon, steaks cooked to perfection (and we had a variety of cooking temps at our table), and food allergies were acknowledged and tended to with professionalism and care. Great dining experience!

    Mildred’s remains one of Gainesville’s finest restaurants. The service and food are impeccable. Do not miss the desserts! We are always a little confused by the 12% tip. We always add on to make it more like our typical 20%, but we don’t know if that’s enough.
