Cute location, free parking, delicious drinks (try the golden gun!) and equally delicious food (shrimp roll is top notch). I would definitely go again!

Loved the outdoor patio. There are heaters for cooler temps, which were very helpful. We were there for brunch on a Sunday around 2:30p. The food and service were both great! It wasn't super crowded. Actually there were only 2 other parties on the patio with us. Will definitely go again.

Gunther & co brunch service wonderful and restaurant ambience beautiful. Food inconsistent. Raw oysters fresh and delicious. Mignonette dipping sauce special.
Duck confit so over salted it was inedible. Hanger steak the same. Someone in the kitchen table needs to understand salt can be added, not taken away. Desserts delicious all around. Without the crazy amount of salt, would have given 5 stars.

The food was good and well cooked, was it worth the price they charged, maybe not. But then again I'm cheap.

Best part was the wait staff and the ambiance. Our waitress was great and checked in on us often. I wish I remembered her name.

We had a wonderful birthday party for my wife. Rain was suddenly in the forecast and they found room for us indoors (we were lucky they happened to have space).
Great food, ambiance and stellar service made it an occasion to remember.

I've been to Gunther several times. It's always fantastic. This was the first time I was there for brunch. The menu presented a challenge. So many choices. Loved what I got. Simple made sophisticated. We sat outside, which was lovely. All around great place for a simple brunch or celebration.

You allowed a guest to bring her large dog, who was barking and jumping all around. We were seated two tables away and found this to be unacceptable. I asked your staff if dogs were allowed, was told yes.

If you allow dogs, you really need to isolate an area , so dogs are not mixed with other customers.


I was very disturbed that you allowed dogs, and I wasn't made aware of this policy

My girlfriends and I very much enjoyed Sunday brunch at Gunther & Co! Everything was spectacular from the beautiful outdoor seating area, the food, the drinks and the service! Our waitress was wonderful-she expertly guided us through the cocktail menu and their specialty gin drinks, which she highly recommended and we very much enjoyed. We will absolutely be back and will be spreading the word to all our friends about how wonderful it is at Gunther & Co. Thank you!!

It was just okay. we had a party of 6 and 2 of the meals had to be sent back for being cold. The manager never even came out. My meal was very bland and we all needed salt. The ambience was the best part and the cocktails were great (especially the old fashioned). I wouldn't come back, the service was very slow and for the price it was not worth it.

Loved every single thing about G&C except for an unremarkable salad. It wasn't bad, but when everything else was as exceptional and elevated, it felt unfair -- we jokingly compared it to an airport salad. We went all out: apps, entrees, desserts, cocktails, and wine. Outdoor seating was lovely. Would go back in a heartbeat. And we'd give the other salads a shot! Maybe they just had a bad salad day?

Excellent ambience, big light airy room and very pleasant atmosphere. Every dish we ordered was delicious although baked oysters could use less salt. Recommend the pavlova for dessert. Service could not be better. Cannot wait to return!!

Came for my partner's bday and it was sweet that our server brought us a small dessert w/ candle even though we expressed we were very full from an amazing meal.

Our order:
Grilled Oysters - so much flavor, fantastic

Pork Belly - The sauce was everything

Tahini Ceaser - Just as good as the first time we had it, although a tad on the lemony side this time where I would prefer more savory tahini flavor.

Shrimp roll - my partner loved it, fries were made perfectly

Thai Hot Pot - my go-to, reminds me of my many travels to Thailand. Very spicy, so don't order unless you can handle it. I really wanted to drink the soup, but my tongue probably wouldn't have enjoyed that.

Kevin Smash - On the sweeter side from my memory of ordering it before. My partner always orders it when we come.

Negroni of the week - I always order negronis and this one hit the spot just right.

The reason for the one-star service review is that Gunther & Co. have a terrible policy regarding serving alcohol to people who are legally entitled to purchase it. Their policy is that they will not accept a "vertical" ID, even if the ID clearly belongs to the person presenting it, is not expired, and shows a birth date that proves the person is at least 21 years of age. This was a huge disappointment to our family who went to Gunther's to celebrate the 21st birthday of one of our children.

The problem, of course, is that if you got your driver's license before you turned 21, it is "vertical", and the state does not automatically mail you another one when you turn 21. So at restaurants that have this policy (which is unique to this particular restaurant in my experience) you are not entitled to purchase alcohol until the next time you get your license renewed, which could be years after you turn 21.

So just beware if you plan to go here with an adult child who has not gotten a license renewal after turning 21.
