    Yelling/crying toddler during 1/2 the meal (parents brought three kids to Gibraltar!) was distracting. No one can or wants to do anything about it, of course. Crabmeat beignets (light as a feather) with honey-mustard sauce and a frisée accompaniment were amazing (special of the day). Branzino fish with crispy onions, oven potatoes and asparagus were superb. Wife's salmon with sweet-potato puree and roasted brussels sprouts was beautifully seasoned. Duck fries were their usual decadent selves. Service was attentive and professional, but a little stuffy and "auto-posh" for our tastes. Couldn't establish a friendly repore with either the server, or the fish deboner. Noise level would be too much for us if they were full, but we chose 5:30PM on a Thursday so it was only about 1/3 full of diners and was fine. Their bar was fully "stocked" with patrons, though... looks like a great local after-work hangout.! Decor was very "fine dining" appropriate. Definitely a "place to be" in Lancaster.

    Gibralter Restaurant was wonderful! We loved the ambiance of the restaurant and bar along with the attentive employees. The oysters were fresh and delicious! The highlighted entrees of freshly prepared fish, were served by Henry in a timely manner. We were quite impressed and will return often for our special celebrations!

    My wife and I brought my parents for dinner last night.. Shannon was outstanding as she was both delightful and prompt. The Bronzini was absolutely delicious. The best of the 4 meals. I ordered the Yellowfin Tuna. I was asked if I was okay with the preparation as advertised, and said yes, but unfortunately the tuna was over prepared. Dry and not much taste. Very disappointed. Did not say anything at the time as I did not want to break up the flow of the evening. Crabcake appetizer was ordered. Delicious as well but tasted like Salmon and not Crab. Salads were wonderful. Wine was perfect. Again, great service. Would like to try again.

    My husband and I visited one of our favorite date night spots in Lancaster. Per usual, the service from the moment you enter the door to the time you leave was exceptional. Matt, our server, was so polite and personable. He was top-notch! We enjoyed the specials for the evening, pork belly short-rib appetizer and a swordfish entree cooked to perfection was the most delicious flavors. We will be back!

    Our server, Henry, was perfect. Food was mostly great. Chef’s appetizer special was superb; salad was fresh and tasty; tuna main course was great except the vegetable pairings mussed the mark and did not enhance the really well-prepared tuna; and shortcake dessert was just right. We will return.

    We love it here . It is always consistent. We usually order the filet and New York. I usually get a salad and my husband always gets the soup. We are never disappointed. The food is very tasty and we always top it off with desserts. . We enjoy the waiters , they always come to say hello and welcome us back again. The owner always checks in to and makes sure we are good.

    My wife and I selected Gibraltar for New Years Eve. Couldn’t have made a better choice. My wife and I split the Caesar Salad for starters. It was fresh with crisp romaine- tasty house-made dressing. My wife had the Shrimp and Scallops Spaghettini and I had the Lobster Fettuccini. We shared the Brussel Sprouts side with dinner. Both entree were exceptional. The Sprouts were among the best I’ve ever had with nice chunks of pork belly. The seafood was plentiful on both entrees; we took plenty home. To wrap, we had the dessert special: an Almond Cheesecake. OMG it was delicious. The service at Gibraltar is the model experience for fine dining. Our waiter, Graham, was excellent. The manager moved us to the bar for a drink before dinner, then seamlessly transitioned us to the dining room. The young assistant, who offered ground black pepper for our salad handled the pepper mill like a pro, adjusting the tension to make sure that the pepper was coarse enough. Can’t recommend this place enough. One of the best restaurants in Lancaster.

    Gibralta's has always been my favorite restaurant because of the food and service. THE personification of service was at last night's dinner. 1 person asked that her plate be taken back to reheat the mashed potatoes without cooking her filet to a more well done state. Two minutes later the owner wordlessly came to table quickly removed the used utensils replacing them with clean utensils & napkin..leaving as unobtrusively & quietly to not disturb our conversations. Now THAT is service and CLASS--he obviously saw waiter taking plate back to kitchen and acted accordingly. NEVER have I seen anyone do that .

    We were slightly underdressed… nice jeans, dress shoes, and sweaters. This was not a problem at all though! We were welcomed and treated with the same level of respect as everyone else. Great environment (upscale and intimate, yet very roomy and not right next to another table. The food and drinks were amazing! Go have a nice night out at this place. It will be a treat!
