Was looking to sit outside but was told a party had that area. No party showed up and went outside. Nice table inside, food was very good. Service was good as well
It felt as if the restaurant had not been cleaned in quite awhile. Made my wonder about the sanitation conditions of the kitchen.
Birthday dinner with my wife. We sat in the patio area, however the umbrella did not provide sufficient shade and soon became uncomfortable to really enjoy the ocean from dining opportunity. The server kept bringing us water but no one ever offered to tilt the umbrella or bring a second umbrella to block the sun from our table. The appetizer and meals were tasty but eventually we decided to pack up our meal to go.
Great view, good service, delicious food! We eat here for all special occasions.
Food was good mashed potatoes great. Service was ok
Service was extremely slow. Got checked on only once, without lifting our hand for service
Gladstones is a great restaurant I have loved for years. Unfortunately, we had a very poor waiter yesterday evening (Sunday August 8, 2021 at 5:30pm). Wish I could remember his name!
I am not one of those high maintenance folks who feels the world owes them the moon & stars. I empathize with and enjoy being courteous to wait staff, so keep that in mind as you read this.
When I asked about the batter used on the fish & chips, he looked me in the eye and said it didn't come with batter, it was pan seared, which is not the case. A waiter who doesn't know a popular menu item? The batter used is light and tastes delicious. After it arrived he neither acknowledged nor apologized for the misinformation.
He forgot to bring the water with lemon slices we requested. When we reminded him after the entrees arrived, he forgot to include lemon slices.
He gave the distinct impression we were imposing on him, and seemed preoccupied with chatting with a group of diners at an adjacent table.
DOG LOVERS TAKE NOTE: Although Gladstones clearly allows dogs on the patio, he kept taking issue with my small gentle poodle mix Beary (I caught the negative look he gave him). He kept making a point of stepping over my dog (who was lying down between the table and the wall, which naturally made my dog get up every single time and I would have to resettle him), instead of just serving us from the opposite side of the table which had no obstructions and was closest to the restaurant.
Gladstones, please make sure servers covering the patio do not dislike dogs!
Even so, the patio ambience and water view are lovely and we will return. However, I will have no qualms about requesting another waiter if we get him again. I actually left a small tip (10% of $120.00), but shouldn't have left him anything but the truth. And here it is.
Once we decided to focus on celebrating my retirement and just ignoring his issues, we had a great time anyway!
The food was good ,The service was terrible. The waiter and waitress were both terrible
Very family friendly and our waitress was so sweet to my wild child son! She had the kids orders going with my drink so they would have time to cool as mine was cooking. 10/10 recommend and will definitely be back again!
Food quality was below what was expected for the money. Nice place aesthetically with good views.
Reminded me of an Applebee’s in that the quality was subpar
Server was great, food and drinks were delicious! Had a great time and we’ll b back again :-)
Staff was friendly
July 5 visit; 5:30 reservation to ensure we could sit outside (patio is wonderful!). Service was very slow but friendly, bread offered promptly. Drink refills or reorders were never offered (perhaps understaffed due to holiday). Mahi Mahi was flavorful, dad’s swordfish was dry and didn’t come with vegetables. Husband and brother enjoyed fish tacos and lobster Mac/cheese respectively. Best part of the meal was the view.
We were disappointed with the fried shrimp. Too much batter. No special seafood. I am sure with time it will get better!
They are almost back to normal. Food was awesome !! Service was slow, probably due to not enough staff. Waiters were very busy. Alot better than a few months ago. We had chocolate cake for dessert it was the worst I had every tried.
I reserved it under birthday occasion to celebrate my birthday there. Upon arriving earlier than my reservation, they were able to sit us outside on the side of the restaurant with less water view than I preferred. But since we arrived much earlier, anywhere is fine for us. The waiter was quick to take our order. Our appetizer seafood ceviche is amazing, Hawaiian Ahi Tuna is below average, and parmesan crust tilapia is great! I wouldn’t order the Ahi Tuna again, since the quality of the tuna isn’t supposed to be sashimi grade as it stated on the menu. It doesn’t melt in your mount as I have tasted others. The waiter didn’t acknowledge my birthday nor offer us a dessert. He didn’t even ask us to validate our parking as the other waiters have asked other tables next to us. Overall, the view is great with 3.5 stars quality of foods.
Outdoor dining maintenance should be no less a priority than indoor, especially considering the time we are living in. Our initial impression of this location was informed by the over 5 min delay at the door, waiting for someone to greet and seat us. Finally, we were escorted to a filthy table with soiled seat pads and trash and food on the ground. I have no idea why we stayed, but with the staff seeming bothered being asked to clean up the table and sweep/remove the trash, it just went downhill from there. Half of our orders were overcooked and others undercooked.
There are too many other options on The Pike and I see why that restaurant may have been so empty while others had waiting lines. First and last time at this location.
The food was cooked to perfection; everything fresh. The service was great. A beautiful setting.
Great experience, excellent server
Went here for my friends birthday! They never disappoint!
Bread is warm and fluffy. Food is ok, not baf
We were a bit disappointed. Ordered calamari which in the past was tender and amazing but this time over cooked and almost inedibly chewy. Order Ed wedge salad which was absolutely drenched in dressing. Ordered a bottle of pino noir and the glasses had soap in them so we had soap scum in our wine. Lobster and New York very over cooked! We love this place. Just a terribly cooked meal.
Service was great, Bloody Queen Mary's were awesome, and the food was very yummy. We enjoyed sitting on the patio next to the marina and boardwalk where the views were delightful. We ate here two mornings in a row for brunch because we liked it so much!
Very limited selection of salads. .....................................
My first time in Long Beach! 💜
We went specifically to celebrate my son’s 9th birthday with a giant bowl of cotton candy. I had confirmed our reservations and asked about it to make sure they still served it for birthdays and was assured that they do. Upon arrival and after ordering dinner, we were told they were out of cotton candy!😫
Great food. Our waitress was awesome and right on top of everything.
The food was good, especially after the less-than-fresh swordfish was replaced by a nice piece of halibut. The service was indifferent, actually appalling on the 'nice restaurant' scale. Unleashing young people without any training, many of whom have never themselves experienced fine food service, is a bad idea. A widespread problem, maybe magnified by the post-pandemic labor issues we hear about.
Overall we had a good time. My wife, mother-n-law and niece enjoyed themselves so no complaints here 👍🏽
It was great to be back at Gladstones with the beautiful views and delicious food. The service was a bit lacking, it felt like we we forgotten It took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine, or hot appetizer actually arrived before the wine.
But overall, very enjoable.
Seated right away at our reservation time. Our over tasked waiter had many problems which effected our enjoyment of Gladstones, but he tried hard to make amends. $18 for 6 small oysters is WAY too much to charge!
It’s been well over one year of not being able to see my 93-yr old mom I’m her assisted living facility due to the pandemic. Thank goodness we’re all vaccinated now!!!
We were finally able to take her out to this very nice restaurant! The view of the harbor is great, the food is good (not out of this world - but good), and the staff helped make our stay here very pleasant!
Great birthday celebration with family. Our favorite appetizer is the spinach Artichoke dip, my favorite cocktail is the Mai Tai and you can't go wrong with any of the main menu options. Miss the blue cotton candy but enjoyed sharing the ice cream sundae. Will take a rain check on the cotton candy. Thx to all the great staff!
Service was slow but waiter was super nice. I was underwhelmed by the menu but what i did have, i enjoyed. Ambiance was great. Loved the location. Just arrive earlier than your reservation to find parking if u don’t choose to valet.
Gladstone’s is one of my regular favorites. Sunday I took two friends who had never been there, and we all really enjoyed it. The menu was creative and tasty. We feasted on lobster and blue crab omelette, lobster quiche, bagel with lox and poached eggs. We’ll definitely be back!
Service poor. Had to ask several times for refill. We got the clam bake. No extra plate for shells or even shell crackers. No one ever checked in for anything.
It was a nice time away and to be with my husband
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner and Gladstone’s didn’t disappoint. Great food, friendly service and beautiful view(lighthouse and ocean port). Easy walking distance from Aquarium of the Pacific.
I wish they had the Full menu available. some of my favorites have been taken off with the limited covid menu, but overall the food is good. Always a good place to eat and hang out
