Tables were very small for 4 people. We all enjoyed our food and service was great. Limited parking so you may need to pay for metered city parking.

What a cute little place! We had an unexpectedly amazing dinner here this week. Our server (sorry I forgot his name) was excellent and the live entertainment was just enough. Drinks were uniquely crafted and we will return.

Great ambiance. Food was awesome, it was somewhat pricey but totally worth it. It is very loud while the band was playing but the music was great and we had a fantastic time.

Celebrated my 24th birthday here. The staff was very attentive, the performers were AMAZING and made my day very special, they even got the entire joint to sing me happy birthday! And the food was incredible, nothing short of 5 STARS! The ambiance is true to the restaurants name, and the Great Gatsby is my favorite book and movie so this was perfect! I had a blast and am already planning my next visit!

Had the bacon wrapped dates. Excellent. But only 3 very small portions for $10. Has the hose rose wine. Good pour for $7.

Went there on one of the burlesque nights. The food was good, we had a choice table with a good waiter. The singer, Anastasia was absolutely terrific. The burlesque girls were fun and very committed to the art. By all means go fir a fun time.

The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The best items were the Wedge Salad (excellent) and the bacon wrapped dates, which were good, but at $10 for three dates, overpriced. Our entrees (the rib and the Sea Bass) were not bad, but just not memorable. We had Old Fashions ($10 each) which were OK, but not the best we've had. The service was excellent, and its a shame the food didn't keep up with the service.

The "Burlesque" show was disappointing. Only two performers who each performed two songs. We went on Valentine's night, so it's possible this was a "limited" show and perhaps the full show would be better. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on that. The singer, Anastasia Sky, sang very well and was very entertaining. My only criticism is that I was expecting her to be accompanied by live music and she in fact sang to a recorded track. To be fair, they did not specifically say it would be a live band, but a live singer.

The ambiance was "cozy" and laid-back, with a intimate feel which was nice. All in all, would we go back? Maybe, but for drinks and appetizers, not for a full dinner.

The singer was absolutely fantastic. For a one woman show, she hit it out of the park. Ambiance at this place has room for improvement, but that's a personal preference, so others may not feel same way. This was our 2nd time here. Food vastly improved from first visit. Friendly staff. Being a huge fan of live entertainment with quality music, meaning someone who can really sing, I'm glad this place exists and hope they are successful.

Go for Rick and Marilyn and you’ll be surprised and you’ll love the entertainment and be very pleased with the food. Kale salad is delicious and no problem customizing it for us. Salmon was delicious too. Service could have been a little more attentive but they were packed. Our second time there and enjoyed it even more than the first time. Owner is personable and wants everyone to have a good time. If I had one criticism it would be that martinis should come in a martini glass not an old fashioned champagne glass. We’ll be back soon.

Great little known spot to go for a date! We loved the food and the live music really took the experience to another level. Cozy and cute spot with champagne and caviar to impress. I also loved their smoked old fashioned cocktail - gotta try it!

Gatsby's Joint is Phenomenal! Live music, sold out burlesque shows, comedy shows, best piano bar nights in So Florida, the octopus is orgasmic, along with the soft egg that is out of this world! Speakeasy secret events when you get a password we got one after the tuesday visit (sometimes with very famous musicians that are in town performing secret shows). Foodie driven small plates menu and craft cocktails. A must place to visit and even better to become a regular.

I really like it here. The menu is varied and delicious. The watermelon salad is something I don’t do as well at home but wish I could. The meatball is very good. We were greeted by several staff members (as usual) and felt cared for. Their recommendations are helpful and we enjoyed sharing the steak.

Gatsby's is a remarkable throw back to gangster days. They have a very interesting drink menu to fit the era. Drink are consistently made well. Great variety of food including small plates. The Brussel sprouts are outstanding as well as their Flatbread choices. Entertainment was outstanding on Saturday night with talented Rick Leonard, piano player, singer and his talented guest singers.

The hi chairs were very uncomfortable u sink in them.
Food is just ok on some & bad on others. The salmon was cooked to my liking but it lacked in flavor. The Meatball was a baseball size but didn't taste good & the sauce unfortunately was really bad. A jar sauce tastes better. The burger was nothing to rave about. The best part of the meal was the side dish of brussel sprouts.
We were the only one 2 customers during happy hour 5-7. We ordered another glass of wine just around 7 maybe 7:02 because we were wating for our server to come out & we were charged the full price instead of happy hour price.
Bad business considering we were the only two customers.

Gatsbys was ok but nothing to make me want to go back. The appetizers took long to come out and were quickly followed by the entree before the appetizers were finished. The filet was not medium rare as ordered and the ribeye was more well done than medium which was requested. Both were ok though but nothing special. Service was fine. Don’t see any reason to go back since there are plenty of other average restaurants to choose from.

We didn't have an entree. Portabella mushroom was great as were tuna poke (all tuna and avocado) and perogies.
