Everything was wonderful, except the noise level. Food and service were terrific. We arrived 10 minutes early and our table was already set to go. Too bad we weren’t told then that there were only 10 minutes left in the brunch happy hour! C’est la vie. The space is so cute and very comfortable, only there isn’t much to absorb sound. We were not expecting the live music, which was good but really made it impossible to hold a conversation. It was appropriate for a coffee house where everyone is sitting with a drink and a slice of pie just listening to the music. For brunch, maybe cut the mics at least? Conversation was carried on by yelling across the table, with a lot of “what?!?” in replies. Higher ceilings are probably not an option, so maybe more fabric to absorb sound? And come on, do you really need microphones in that space? So glad we were on the complete opposite side of the bar from the musicians.

It was our First time there . The food was great and so was the service. Would have preferred a more intimate table for two instead of table for four maybe somewhere without so much traffic Near the entrance. But overall nice experience!

Great service and beer selection. The mussels have a 3rd option with jalapeños...probably next time. The Cobb salad and Burger were perfect. Great early Sunday dinner spot.

Food was excellent. There was a nice variety of choices and everything we ordered was delicious. The noise level was a little loud, but we were sitting in the bar area so that's expected.

Delicious food! It was quiet for a late lunch date, but I could see this a bit more noisy in the evening. They offer special meals along with dueling piano night. Service was pleasant. The building was gorgeous.

We had taken a break from GB after we had several bad meals and horrible service. We decided to give the kids Italian NYE a try and it was OK. OK until the bar tender spilled an entire tray of drink on my 4 year olds head and didn’t even stop to try and help him. It was incredibly unorganized, the space where they had the kids was so small and scary for the kids, the music was absolutely awful leading to the kids 6PM festivities and the wait staff was shockingly terrible. When we arrived back at our table where we left our meals that we had JUST got we found that most of our food and drinks were taken. My mother who was trying to take a picture of the kids turned around from her seat for a few moments just to return to the staff taking our food and drinks. Then we were charged $250 for the meal. To say I was stunned is being nice. I asked to talk to someone and no one came so we paid the bill and left after waiting for 20 minutes. GB is officially off our list of local spots to go. I would have thought the ladies corrected the issues but they have not.

My friend and I enjoyed every aspect of Gypsy Blu for lunch. The service staff were attentive, while making us feel relaxed and comfortable. The menu provided us with many scrumptious choices. Finally, the atmosphere was perfect. The tables will beautifully set, the lighting was just right, and set up of the room afforded us a chance engage in conversation without hearing other patrons’ conversations. Looking forward to going back in the near future.

Terrible brunch. Server was cold. Breakfast was burnt, then under-cooked. General Manager was kind and tried very hard to please. Food was the issue.

For the past two years my fiancé and I have been to Gypsy Blu as our annual Christmas date. Both years I have been blown away by the food (the scallops are AMAZING and the ny strip that I had this time around was unbelievable) and the overall atmosphere. Live music was a wonderful surprise this year and we thoroughly enjoyed listening as we had our drinks. The decor around Christmas time is so festive and cozy. We love coming here!

The food was great. Music was good, albeit louder than expected. Waitress was decent; however, she forgot a side that I ordered (decided not to remind her after our food came).

First time at Gypsy Blu. Wanted to treat a friend for her birthday. The restaurant was very nice and the food was good, but I think the service could have been better. We both ordered salads. We ask if we could have bread and we were told that the restaurant only serves bread at dinner!!! Okay, not a big deal. When my friend noticed that some of the other diners were eating toast (it was brunch time) she asked the server if we could have toast and he said he had to ask someone in the kitchen if that was okay since the toast was only served with the egg dishes. Really... I spent $67 plus tip for lunch for two and I am being hassled over two pieces of bread. That is exactly what was served to us. Not two slices apiece, but one slice a piece for a total of two.
That being said, our salad were really delicious and the restaurant was very convenient to the Ambler Theater. Maybe the sever was new, but in all my eating out at many restaurants local and otherwise, I was never told that I could not have bread because it was not dinner time or I did not order eggs!!

We had a pleasant Sunday afternoon in Ambler thanks to the caring and friendly service of our waiter, Pierce. We arrived at 2:00pm and spent about 1.5 hours just lingering over our wine and appetizers. We were on our way to movie at the Ambler theater. We felt comfortable and welcomed and never felt rushed. Both of our appetizers were well prepaired and nicely portioned. Our burger was cooked just as we liked it. We will return.
