Prime Rib
In the last four decades Gulliver’s Restaurant has became one of the most popular Prime Rib Restaurant in Southern California.
Gulliver’s hand-selected beef (corn-belt) is slow roasted in a unique patented oven system to assure flavorful, tender and juicy Prime Rib dinners. Gulliver's Restaurant is well known also for its other specialties as in-house aged Prime Steaks, Chateaubriand, Salmon, Rack of Lamb, Baby Back Ribs and roasted Long Island Duck.
As you walk into a Gulliver's you will feel as though you have entered back in time to 18th century England. Guests at the Gulliver’s are surrounded by a veritable museum of leaded glass pieces, pewter and ceramic objects, and a collection of prints from Hogarth, Rowlandson and other Gulliver’s Travels illustrators.
The Portions are huge, the service is gracious and friendly, and most importantly, the beef is cooked to perfection.
Gulliver's is place where memories are created.

Food seemed old. Bathroom needs updating and cleaning. Wine list is awful and has no vintages except for the extremely expensive wines. Really not the place that it was when I was younger.

The cream corn was the best part. The prime rib is too big and isn’t as good as other local places.

We loved the ambiance and can’t wait to return with family coming to town for Easter! The Host was very helpful in informing me about the Easter Brunch . Great experience!! Thank you !

Celebrated our anniversary here, with friends. The prime rib was cooked perfectly as usual. Everyone enjoyed the food! I especially love the creamed corn & creamed spinach. My man doesn't like them and was able to substitute them out. It was a perfect celebration!

We went to dinner at 8:30PM so it was a bit more quiet. They were able to accommodate a table of 16 people in short notice - I mean like in an hour's notice. Service was great, food was amazing. No one had any complaints. There was plenty of options on the menu for everyone's preference. Someone at our table dared the 26oz prime rib and no regrets. Pork chop, lamb rack, steaks, fish, all of it was delish! They do offer a kids menu and the kids at our table were pleased.

Will be back the next time we are visiting the area!

Visited based on their Groupon offer. Excellent service, and food was very good. Would have been a bit over our usual price point without Groupon. Creamed corn was a big hit.

The food was great, but the booth that we were assigned was not very good. We felt like we were ignored by the servers. We had to ask for water refill multiple times and were only given 3 refills. It was as if the servers would only come half way into the room from the kitchen and completely ignore the front half of the restaurant before going back into the kitchen. We were literally sitting right below/back of the "check-in" desk. The way we were seated, we felt more like we were in drive-in movie as we sat side-by-side watching everyone passing by.
Other than where we sat and the poor service, the food was the real reason why we came back within 2 weeks driving all the way down from LA County. The first time we came was for my hubby's b'day with a total group of 8 people. That was a better experience compared to this time.

Please eliminate white pepper from your kitchens. It in no way enhances the flavor of your side dishes or any food for that matter. All that means is that your foods or prep have no taste. That is all pepper is good for.
Front of house staff lost my reservations. We were seated 30 minutes after our appointed time. They were really not up to a busy day.
Bar tender worked with aplomb even though he was slammed.
Servers did the best they could but all in all it was an ordeal rather than a pleasant experience.
Too bad since it was our first time there and our 36th wedding anniversary. I would to give you all a second chance but that is not likely. It is hard to give up $149 and come away miserable.

As always, we had a lovely experience dining at Gulliver's. The wait staff was attentive to our needs, including the timing of our service, beverage refills, dessert and coffee service. JJ, the waitress, was a delight, as was Justin the food runner.

We will happily continue to visit Gulliver's, both for special occasions and for "just because" days! If you want to visit (especially for Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving or Easter), we STRONGLY recommend you make a reservation, as the restaurant is very popular.

We were in a room with several large parties, so it was exceptionally noisy. Also, because our server was waiting on a table of 16, the service for our table of 2 was poor. After our food arrived, no one came back to see how everything was; I ordered coffee, but was unable to get a refill. We drove to Gulliver's from West Los Angeles - a drive of about an hour. The food was not as good as the last time I was there a couple of years ago. Probably would not drive there again.
