It was our first time there and the waitstaff did a great job with my reservation (had to adjust last minute due to working late) and explaining the menu. She was attentive but not where you felt rushed to order. We ordered 4 plates and 3 of 4 were outstanding. Our final plate did not stack up in flavor and the ribs were dry. My friend agreed about the flavor but didn’t think they were over cooked. She finished them so they were good enough to eat!

Even though I wasn’t a fan of the short ribs it was a great experience and plan to return many times again.

Ody was a fantastic server. Lee the bartender, made our drinks quickly and with precision. They were delicious cocktails. The food was out of this world. The chef and owner are super cool and obviously care a lot about the product they are serving their customers. Really glad they are here in Andersonville.

Chef Rolf Peterson is brining his experience working at the great Chicago restaurants to Andersonville. Fantastic food, great ambiance, great cocktails; Gadabout is the perfect neighborhood restaurant.

The food is fantastic. Nice menu that has no set cuisine and primarily focuses on quality locally sourced ingredients prepared with thought. The cocktails are delicious! Very impressed with plant based and vegan options.

It was incredible; we are looking forward to an expanded menu since we have had many of the items on both the appetizer and entree listing....desserts are always fun especially the blonde brownie for sharing. Thanks....have brought many friends to your special place.

The total experience was awesome. The price point was very low for the quality of food, uniqueness of flavors, eclectic cool environment and grown up environment. It's awesome but doesn't take itself so seriously that you cannot relax and enjoy. It's the best of all worlds!!

My friends are vegetarians so we pretty much ordered all vegan/vegetarian dishes they offer for brunch. Every single dish was good! Would def comeback to try their non vegetarian and dinner menu.

the most unassuming dishes were brilliant. The potatoes and broccoli are not to be missed. Very eclectic menu with lots of veggie options.

This place is amazing. Best thing to happen on Clark street in Andersonville besides Fiya. The only note I’d want management to consider is that our particular server (Odi) last night pulled a face and ever-so-subtle attitude when I asked if he’d pour us more champagne. Every time I’ve gone anywhere upscale and ordered a bottle champagne, wine, and even sparkling white, the server has made a point of refilling our glasses. I was shocked by his response. He asked me if there was anything he could do, and I sweetly asked this.
Otherwise, the night was perfection.

Gadabout is my new favorite restaurant. Each dish is creative with layers and layers of flavors from across the globe. I appreciate the number of vegetarian small plates, and even a vegan dessert option. Also the cocktails were inspired!
