A late lunch to catch up with an old friend was a great excuse to try out Gaslight. Warm and welcoming staff. Small but perfect menu for lunch. Our waiter answered all our questions and made excellent recommendations. Good food in a relaxed environment. Loved having the open windows for an indoor/outdoor feel. We’ll be back for sure!

Server Brooke was terrific! Disco Fries and Scallops were fantastic. Butternut squash soup was good but a bit bland. Filet was tasty but a little charred. This was our first visit but we will definitely go back because we love that they take reservations and I want to try both the salmon and the burger.

Gaslight is on our favorites list. Good food and generally good service. We had an early reservation yesterday (4:30), because we had an event that we were attending at the zoo. The restaurant was not crowded at all. Our waiter was very pleasant and took our order within a reasonable amount of time but the wait for our meal was excessive. It was 35 minutes before the first 4 of 6 meals delivered came our and another 5 for the last 2. We had ordered sandwiches and there was one salad. I am guessing that there may have been an issue with inadequate kitchen staff but that is too long to wait under non busy conditions. We have been to this establishment on and off since things have re-opened for in person dining and this is the first time we have had to deal with a lengthy wait for food. Hoping it was a fluke.

First time me and all 5 of my siblings hung out and had dinner together without it being linked to a holiday, anniversary, birthday, funeral, family event etc. I have dined here several times and wanted to share my experience with them. Our mother passed away last year and with Covid sanctions we can now get together monthly . Everyone had a blast….great food, drinks, conversation and laughs!!

Great place to eat for a nice occasion, especially when the weather cooperates. They can open up the windows where it becomes more of an outdoor restaurant. Nice variety of high quality food.

So great to return to the Gaslight Bar & Grill. Reservations were easy, the dining room and bar area felt very safe, and the food is excellent as always. Charlie was a wonderful server, too! Getting back to normal is even better when it includes this place for a great meal and good conversation.

The less than perfect overall rating is due only to the menu which doesn't provide enough selection of items to our liking. In mitigation, my wife and I are not "adventurous" diners, opting for basics over creative, esoteric selections. Otherwise, food is cooked to perfection, service is stellar, and ambiance is great, whether indoors or on rooftop. Parking can sometimes be a hassle, so plan on arriving early to begin the hunt for a space.

We love the character of this place. The outsider doesn't look like much and that's the beauty of it because when you step inside, its a perfect blend of casual and upscale. Lighting is good, ambience is good, overall vibe is good. The drinks and appetizers we had were great. We will definitely go back.

The setting is pleasant, particularly facing lively Ludlow Avenue, the food was outanding: rather distinctive menu, well-planned and presented, perfectly cooked, and delicious.

However, I found the server most unappealing: she looked unhealthy, inappropriately and distractingly costumed to draw attention to herself, and with an ungracious expression; but worst was that I found her scrawny arm covered with ugly tattoos revolting when she extended it right in front of my face and eyes.

I love this restaurant and would like to give this occasion 5 stars but cannot for the following reasons-

1. I called directly to make reservations and was told that it was not possible and everything was completely booked the entire day/evening. The person who answered the phone even suggested a different restaurant.
So I went on open table and booked a reservation for a time I didn’t really want on the evening that I wanted - even after being told that it was not possible by the staff there.

2. The food is usually very high quality but on this occasion looked as if the kitchen staff was cleaning out the bottom of the bin.

Overall disappointing to someone like me who is usually a big fan of this restaurant.

We dined at 5 PM on a Thursday to avoid crowds during the pandemic. The place is a great neighborhood joint, with better than expected food. Our entrees (duck confit and salmon pasta) were both very good. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
We look forward to visiting the rooftop space in the summer.

The food was very bland, needed ample salt and overall flavor. Nothing was distinctive on the taste.

Spaghetti and meatballs tasted like it was jar sauce.

Lamb chops were small and cooked over temperature, and the chimichurri sauce was mostly oil and lacking flavor. The asparagus and potatoes highlighted although needing salt.

Lastly, the salmon linguine was full of ingredients but once again, lacked flavor. The noodles used weren’t even linguine.

Best thing ordered was the bacon onion jam bruschetta. Very tasty. Presentation was also very appealing, but that was a clear misrepresentation of flavor and sophistication.

Service was great, very informative and attentive. Lighting was too light for the food and overall ambiance of the establishment.

Gaslight Bar & Grill is a nice neighborhood find. The menu did not have a lot of variety for meat lovers (a lot of seafood), but what our dinner group had was good. The portion of the pork loin was a little small for our male diners, but the filet was excellent. The cocktails were good too, especially Lola and the Cucumber martini. The bread pudding was delicious with the toasted marshmallow on top... It was a nice treat on a cold night. Our waiter was fantastic! Friendly, attentive without being annoying, and efficient. We will definitely be back, and want to try out the rooftop as soon as it's available.
