Went here before the BSO Holiday Pops in a group of 6. Made a reservation. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the drinks. Things were a little busy so a drink was forgotten or it would have been all 5 stars. Will definitely be back.

We love Gaslight, and were taking some guests to enjoy one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate a special day. There was a slight delay to get our table, and without prompting the manager offered us free champagne while we waited. The food and service were wonderful, as usual. We loved the tuna tartare appetizer, and had the salmon, rotisserie chicken, and pork chop. The experience was very memorable.

The waiter needs to tighten up his game. For example, the seafood tower came, we sat for five min and no plates. I had to get up and ask. Also, there were big gaps were he was gone, where i wanted to order another bottle. Once i order the 150 bottle of Bordeaux, he was all over it. For a $600 business dinner, the service needs to be much crisper my first sip of water to my last bite of cake. I have been coming here for years, and expect high levels of service.

Food was out of this world

I love this place. However, the last two times I have been there it has not been up to par. My birthday dinner was ok. The food and service were slow...and bu the time the food came, warm. The highlight of both visits was Justin. He is smart...and knows how to treat a customer. This last visit was more of the same. Slow and meh food

A wonderful evening with excellent service and spectacular food. This was an superior dining experience. Pamela, our server, was excellent. Dustin, the manager, was incredibly helpful and attentive.

Our table of four had Cod, Steak Frites, Salmon and Scallops (Saturday special), and we could not decide which was best because all were amazing.

We do brunch here regularly for the prix fixe menu that includes a large breakfast, coffee/tea, juice, and julia child shortbread for 12$...and then we fill up on the amazing brunch cocktails. Have come in here with an infant/stroller/carseat and the staff is very accommodating - cannot express how much I appreciate being able to get a fancy brunch with a baby!!

An incredibly rude host stated repeatedly that I did not have reservations and implied I was lying about having confirmed the reservation earlier in the day with a staff member. After I had him listen to the voicemail he said “oh I was on the wrong screen.” Complete joke of a person and speaks volumes of the restaurant group who employees him.
