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.

The food and the service for Gulliver’s Restaurant was excellent. We showed up a little early for reservation and they sat us down to are table. We had ordered two prime rib dinners, salmon and the rack of lamb which were all cooked to perfection.

By far the best Prime Rib I have ever had! Everything was delicious, I have never liked creamed corn but this was outstanding!! Definitely will come back again.

Food was decent. My ribeye was fair. My partners all had prime rib which they said was good. The side dishes were very good to excellent. The waitress must have been new. She was having a hard time keeping up and she knew nothing about spirits. She thought rye was scotch and did not know what brands they had in stock. Made no difference to me but my dining partner is a bit of a rye snob.

Food was bland and very overpriced. No bite at all to the horseradish. Very bland and tasteless. Service was fine. Looked old and tired. Staff was very nice.

Not a good experience! I talked my family into going to Gulliver's for a family members 75th birthday. They came all the way from Corona on my recommendation and the food was horrible. Last summer I had a fabulous meal. What happened? One person in our party ordered the rib-eye steak and couldn't even eat half of it. It was so full of grizzle and fat. Two people that had the Chateaubriand had the same problem. Sorry, we won't be back.

We each had the duck as the main dish and the house salad to start. For the side we asked for green beans. It also comes with creamed corn and a loaded baked potato. All were delicious!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Gulliver's has been one of my all time favorites since I moved to Orange County from Denver 33 years ago. There was a Gulliver's in Denver so this reminded me of "HOME".
Now that I live in the Palm Springs area, I go back as often as I can while in town.

My parents started bringing us to Gulliver's right after the opening. It has become a family tradition and now my children are enjoying the Gulliver's experience. Sunday, 3/1, was our mother's 100 birthday. She is still alive but unable to participate due to Alzheimer's. The staff were attentive and even brought us some wonderful trifle with a candle to commemorate her 100th birthday. The prime rib and accompanying side dishes were as delicious as always. It was a memorable evening and celebration and tribute to two living legends! Our heartfelt thanks, the Cantin Family!

Gulliver's is our go to restaurant for prime rib and steaks. Their portions are huge, the ambiance is of an English pub and the service is fantastic.

We started with a split Gulliver's salad which is one of my favorite salads and my wife had the Gulliver's cut prime rib with Yorkshire pudding, au jus, creamed corn and creamed spinach which she said was very good. I had the Ribeye steak with French fries and thought it was one of the best I have had. Our server also gave me the corn and spinach. Great relaxing dining, not just eating,

Really can't go wrong with red meat at Gullivers

Yet another visit to Gulliver's our go to restaurant for the very best prime rib. Of course, it must be blackened and laden with horseradish sauce and au jus. Can't wait to return!

We have not been here for a long time and will not be returning. It's a shame to see a restaurant that used to be so good go downhill.

I used to recommend Gulliver's to everyone.......not anymore. Two of my great friends Valentine's Dinner was ruined when the Manager Ilya (The Manager) said "Two men together, on Valentine's, well I won't seat you together" Rudest, Neanderthal, backwards, ETC. were done with Gulliver's and will let others know the way you treat your Clientele.
