Our reservation was at 8...the only negative in our entire experience, was that we felt rushed...It's nice to be served in a timely fashion, but there was certainly no seatings after us, and we could have been given a little more time to enjoy

Best food in Boca Raton! Stellar service and incredibly kind management although we do consistently tend to bring the median age of patrons down substantially we always go and enjoy every sip, bite and minute! Well Done

Although pricey, I must say that it was a great meal. I had the Escargot for an appetizer and the Seafood Crepes for my entree. I can tell you that the Crepes were perfectly done and the sauce was not overbearing. Every bite was pure heaven. I plan on going back again just for the Crepes. My friends had the Dover Sole and the Trout Amandine and said both were delicious. Service was terrific. I highly recommend this restaurant!

As always, Gazebo never disappoints ... We were not shown to the banquette we requested, and the Maitre'd immediately found us one. The Dover Sole is always a delight, and service top notch.

thank you

If you enjoy Dover sole, this is the best place in town to have it!
Great service by Stefan, so nice to have him back from vacation.
Also had the Scampi Provençal for a starter, fabulous.
Looking forward to our return!

As you come in the maître d' welcomes you, to the waiters that greet you at the table. Very friendly.
The food is still outstanding, whatever you decide to choose( had most of it). The drinks were also very healthy ones. They go beyond their way if you are celebrating a day, or not.
Highly recommended.

What ever happened to Kathy’s Gazebo? I’m hoping that they were just having a bad night when I was there. On the plus side, the place is still shining clean and pleasantly kitschy. Even the complicated crystal chandelier sparkled like diamonds. The knickknacks scattered around the restaurant were similarly polished and in perfect condition. The leaded glass windows were immaculate. The furniture was in perfect condition as were the table linens. Unfortunately, most menu items that were part of the summer menu dinner were terribly subpar, the exceptions being the Crepe Royale and Caesar salad first course. The tasteless and flaccid trout - oh my goodness - was covered in an oily substance and topped with what appeared to be tomato paste and enormous mushroom slices. Even the bread and Chef’s Selection desserts were far from worthy of a French restaurant. The servers were okay and attempted to make up for the fact that we didn’t begin to finish our entrées by bringing us a few small cookies after the meal. Overall it was a terribly disappointing experience. I’m not at all sure that I will ever go back.

Top service, menu, and management make this restaurant one of the finest classic French restaurant in SE Florida. Dover sole prepared with perfection and sides to match. Memorable deserts and a great wine selection. Never disappointing.

I have to admire this place -after several month closed most staff are back and service still excellent- the food also top notched, the Dove Sole excellent with mashed potatoes and green beans- if you want different sauces available. Home made desserts.

Having dined many times at this restaurant we found this visit to be a shadow of our past-experiences
My wife’s dover sole was cold the beef wellington crust was burnt as were the special order soufflés that we had to remind our waiter that we ordered
He was too preoccupied with his pending vacation
and speaking with the car valet to be available to address our needs.
I even had to chase after him to obtain a check after we had waited an inordinate amount of time.

This was nothing like our past dining experiences at the Gazebo and hope that we caught them on a off night. Also do not make rsvp via open table as they automatically seat those customers in the poorer section of the restaurant next to the door.

A very disappointing dining experience

Classic French cuisine-Beef Wellington, Dover Sole ( their signature dish-excellent ), served by tuxedoed waiters-warm, hospitable, knowledgeable.
It is a throw back to really fine dining. No rush, a conversation could be held easily.
Superb souffles for dessert. It was our anniversay and well worth the visit. It is costly, but you are getting your moneys worth.

Fabulous meal! I had Beef Wellington, it wasn’t on the menu but I asked and they made it. Was probably the best I’ve had and I have had several.
This has become one of our favorites! Always a great meal and great service.
