We love the Gaslight grill because the food is consistently excellent! The brunch menu has such a great variety.

It offers breakfast as well as lunch items. Portions are substantial and they offer a prefixed menu which is a great buy!! Coffee, juice, raspberry, Linzer tart, main entree and fries for $11.95.

Great place to eat!!

I love going here for brunch. I had the Croque Madam and it was outstanding as usual. First batch of fries were disappointing, but replacement batch was crispy and delicious as usual. Server handled it very gracefully.

We had a great time coming in from Melrose. The experience and vibe is so much better than Lynnfield GL.
Three couples met to have dinner and discuss the book, The Women of Paris - Alex Bliss was terrific in accommodating us.

The food is delicious.
However, sitting is a little bit narrow and the place is crowded. You should be careful not to bump to waiters during your meal. I like the environment most, especially the faint candle light on each table, just enough to light up the area of your own table, so that you might ignore all other people around you.

We came for Dine Out Boston and the value of the deal was amazing for the delicious food that we received. We also loved how we had the option of getting a carafe of wine instead of a whole bottle. We will be back again!

We celebrated our wedding at Gaslight with 18 friends and family members! It was awesome. The service was great, the food was great, and their menu is awesome - there was something for everyone. We had an amazing time, and I’m excited to spend anniversaries going back!

They clearly over reserved and couldn’t handle them all. They were going to put a chair in the aisle as the 5th seat in a booth with tons of traffic going back and forth. For what you pay for dinner and drinks this wasn’t and shouldn’t be an option. This isn’t a pub. We forced their hand to move to a table that could accommodate us. They didn’t want to do it. Poor execution at front of house. Waitstaff was pleasant and did a nice job. Food was ok.

The gaslight accommodated our Friday night traffic nightmare where traffic caused me to be 1/2 hour late, and 45 minutes late for my 6:15 reservation. We just got appetizers so we could make our 8 PM theater performance. Our waitress was helpful, recommending things we could get. The tasty food came in a timely fashion, and we made our performance.
Thousands of things were right, but I found the staff a little in attentive. I would’ve preferred some oil, instead of butter for the bread, But could not get eye contact with any of the staff.
The staff really does make this place, as there were plenty of good interactions, even coming back after the play, they were very accommodating, stamping our parking pass etc

Gaslight is a special place for dining and spending time with friends. The service is excellent and they genuinely work to create an exceptional experience.
My only wish is that the menu contained some entrees that were less expensive. If so, it would be my favorite and frequent destination as everything is perfect. Thanks!

Sunday brunch was extremely busy and very loud. The server brought us the wrong order 3 times. The third time, we just sucked it up and ate what we were served because we were starving by that point. I’ve been for dinner in the past and had a great experience, but I would not return for brunch.

Our first visit... atmosphere is cozy and lively but not too loud. Everyone enjoyed their meals... cod, steak and beet salad were highlights and of course the warm baguette. Impeccable and attentive service, good wine recommendations. Great evening at Gaslight and can’t wait to return.

This restaurant has potential and could be great. The food tastes great, with authentic European taste but they pack the place so tight that you’re basically sitting with the people at each adjacent table, it’s impossible for waiters and customers to get around, and people are constantly bumping into you. The service is also incredibly slow and inattentive. When they brought us a cold steak they gave us vouchers for a free appetizer and drink for the next time we come. I feel that’s poor customer service to apologize by trying to goad us into coming back again.

We love Gaslight and it ended up being a wonderful breakfast. However, we initially sat down and waited ten minutes without anyone greeting us. After waiting even longer, we had to request that we get some service. Once our server came over, service was great from then on. Food was delicious and came out quickly. In our many visits to Gaslight, we realize that service is hit or miss, but the food/ambiance does not disappoint. Would definitely recommend.

Worst service I ever had in the Southend. Waited did not remove dirty plates, had to ask multiple times for bread, waited over 20 minutes to get our credit cards after payment and we were celebrating a double birthday. The waiter said a small desert would be provided and then proceeded to ignore the request and was very disappointing. Can’t believe this is the level of service at a resterahnt of this level. We paid over $500 and would expect the service to be better

We had a good time, but some things were sub-par. My friend's bar steak was quite chewy, and she didn't get a steak knife. We had to wait for a while to get it. The rests of the food and the drinks were great, especially the pork schnitzel. We will definitely recommend this place, especially for brunch.

Use to be my favorite brunch area, came in at 12noon and missed the Sunday 9-11am prefix menu, wish they extend to 12noon. Server was friendly but was too busy to refill water and get our check. She was running around serving other new tables and not as attentive. The portion is little and value /quality is okay. Price is high. My friend toast are over-butter, greasy and burned. May not recommend and come again.
