Gambaros seafood is always wonderful. We have been dining there since the original site on Petrie Tce opened, have fond degustatory memories of delicious mud crab, then lobster (yum), then beautifully cooked fish, etc. Our non seafood lovers adore the eye fillet, with tasty vegetables. We have never been disappointed. Service is always spot on and friendly. Thank you to the Gambaro family for carrying on the legacy started by Michael.

The waiter was fine, but every time he came to our table he would constantly ask my partner what we wanted and refer to me later although I was paying for our meal including the tip. The food was excellent, but the service needs some attention.

We went for our anniversary dinner. There was no acknowledgement after making a point of our anniversary. The meal I ordered wasn’t available. The waitress spilled my drink. We spent a lot of money and felt let down.

Great fish beautifully cooked but quite expensive.
Good well priced sides.
Wine list ok but again expensive.
Far too noisy to have conversations.
Service a little slow for those prices.

Waited too long for drinks and food. Sat at 5:30 and ended up leaving at 7:20 being late for the game at Suncorp. I have 10 seats to every home game and I will not be bringing my business back to gambaro

Excellent service. It has been a while since I have been to a restaurant where I didn't have to look for staff or get their attention to have my needs met.
The staff at Gambaro anticipated every detail, the service was exceptional.

We both had the lobster special and it was delicious.

Thank you Gambaro.

The dishes we ordered were all very tasty other than the fish that we found to be a bit overcooked. It’s also quite pricey for the amount of food you get on your plate. The service was good, the restaurant was clean and had a pleasant, soothing ambiance. Overall we had a very enjoyable dinner. Will definitely come again.
