    This is a fabulous place to celebrate. It is small so make a reservation. But it's much easier to get into than French Laundry. The food is so wonderful and they do accommodate special requests for allergies and food likes and dislikes. I highly recommend this place.

    Meh is all I have to say. They of course are students but it's not good when the kid pouring your water is far better than your server. Food was just ok and I am a foodie. We booked this table months ago and the ambience was NOT good. The old restaurant was a 100 times better. Had some shrimp appetizer which was friend. It was NOT good. The beef dish was rolled beef in grape leaves. I was unimpressed. Not happy and I'm giving them a star because they are kids. Avoid

    Thank you for providing your feedback. The Gatehouse Restaurant is certainly very different from the Wine Spectator Greystone restaurant that closed about 10 years ago. We're sorry that you did not enjoy the Dolmas. We try to honor cooking traditions with origins dating back to Ancient Persia and Greece that have stood the test of time and are beloved by many cultures in today's modern age. As restaurateurs and future chefs, it is always our goal to ensure guests enjoy the dishes they are served. Please let us know in the moment if something is not to your liking so that we may replace it with something more aligned with your expectations. We appreciate your patience with our students!

    We loved loved everything the food was exquisite the details were perfect! The students were polite, efficient, knowledgeable and easily engaged in conversation. My only which was that the students had an educational component to let the patrons know about theirselves. Were the are from and what they want to do with their culinary degree.

    Dinner at the Gatehouse was a wonderful experience! The food was delicious and the wine pairings were good. It was fun getting to chat with the students and instructor to learn about the program. Definitely would recommend to others.

    Great looking venue. However on a record day of heat over 100 degrees restaurant ac struggled. Had a 6 pm reservation. Got there at 5:45. Was told to go back and wait in car or wait in main building for 15 min because servers weren’t ready. Our table was available. So we went back out in heat and sat in car for 15 min. Kind of weird. Food was very good. Service was a little uneven. Courses came out very disjointed. That said understand these are students and so it does come off like a night of restaurant wars on top chef. Have fun with it and enjoy yourself. So important to help support these young chefs and students.

    We had a phenomenal experience: Your diligent staff made us feel like a part of their community. Michael is growing into an impressive server; we were impressed with his knowledge of the intricate menu. Additionally, when presented with a tough question about a dish’s consistency, Michael’s resourcefulness and candor with his answer was refreshing. Everyone else who welcomed us into the space, presented dishes, re-filled water, cleared dishes, and re-set silverware displayed both good cheer and professionalism. Thank you for making our anniversary so special. We look forward to making it an annual tradition.
