This was my first time dining at Gibraltar since the pandemic began. We ate outside. Gabby was our server. She was an absolute sweetheart and our meals were SUPERB. We began with the tuna tartare: for me, the wasabi mixed in with the guacamole is what takes this dish to the next level. Of course, the fresh tuna is a star, too. For my entree, I had the fettuccine with lobster and I wish I could eat that ever day. There was no skimping of lobster meat, and it paired perfectly with the pasta. There was almost a sweet taste to the sauce, and the fresh corn was a pleasant contrast of texture to the fresh noodles and buttery lobster. 10/10 would recommend!

We both got the same special—the pumpkin seed encrusted halibut—and we are still taking about it! Honestly was the best piece of fish I’ve eaten. It was so well prepared and arrived at our table still very warm, so moist and delicious. The rest of the dish was excellent as well. Can’t wait to go back and hope to find this halibut preparation on the menu again. Our waitress also made the evening special—Gabbi was very pleasant and attentive. Overall, it was an excellent experience!

Lovely outdoor dining with welcome heaters. The special cocktails are always a treat and the menu doesn’t disappoint. It’s great for special occasions. But is also good for a weeknight dinner to get away and be pampered.

The food and ambience was wonderful. We ate outside. Our table was in the grass closest to the street so the noise from the street was moderate but did not interfere with conversation. We did feel the service was a bit slow but we were in no great hurry. It was just nice to be out. Tables were adequately distanced and all staff we encountered had a mask on.

The entire evening was great. I thought I was going there for dinner but it turned out to be a Dining Experience. Our waiter Graham was excellent and very attentive. I had the Tuna Tataki and my wife had the Whole Roasted Branzino, both of which were excellent and plate presentation was professional. You can tell they take great pride in the restaurant and their customers. This was our first visit but we will be going back.

Thank you for a wonderful date night. It was a much needed night out after all that has been going on since March. We will definitely be back. It was so nice to see the staff all helping and involved in everything. We do believe we interacted with the owner, who was very involved in his business. Thank you

Food was excellent as usual. We requested outdoor seating. The cement patio is great, but in an effort to maximize seating, they set up some wire outdoor tables and chairs on the grass. These tables are set up on loose stones and not level. Besides being VERY uncomfortable, the table was leaning at least 3” and our wine glasses almost slid off the table. When I go again, I will request a nice table on the cement patio.

Have been wanting to eat here for a while, it was a lovely breeze outside on their patio. You must have lower expectations given the location next to a main road. But the hedgerow does help. Not to keen on residence walking their pets as you dine. Food was great, lots of options. If you have a non-seafood or red meat lover, your choices are extremely limited. They are on the highest price side which was surprising. We made reservations ahead noting it was a special occasion. The most unfortunately part of our experience was our server. So attentive and impersonal (not refilling glasses, having to ask for condiments) for this establishment. You can have a great restaurant and poor service and ruin the experience or a moderate quality food restaurant and great service....which would you go back to? We did love our food, it did come very quickly - so the next time - we just might ask for "who's your great servers?"

Chef Carl never disappoints! Because we dine there frequently, I tend to order from his specials list. The halibut being one of my favorites. He’s very accommodating if you prefer one of the sauces from a menu option. We’ve been enjoying their outside patio and the service is spot on. Thank you Gibralter!

It was disappointing, Gibraltar should let us know in advance when they make such decisions.
