    Excellent service. The hostess knew to place us in a quiet area because of a few parties. The food was great as always. Enjoy the view! Be back soon.

    Terrible experience. Server neglect, loud environment, two hour wait for entrees followed by dismissive attitude from server after pointing out the disappointing experience. And after the extensive wait the Entrees were served to our party of six one at a time, minutes apart. Two of which came out lukewarm and another puzzlingly way over cooked. We requested to speak with the manager before leaving but were told that they were too busy.

    Took an hour and 20 minutes for entrees to come out after appetizers. One of our guests never got her appetizer. Waitress was very nice but clearly overwhelmed. Couldn’t order another drink. Never had water glasses refilled. Finally had to get up and ask another waiter to check on our meals. Food was good. Squash flower appetizer not at all good!

    Limited amount of overcooked shrimp, calamari with very little broth on dry pasta. Very overpriced, disappointed and won’t go back.

    One of the best Italian restaurants around. The service was excellent and the servers were super friendly. We'll be back again.

    Gabbiano is one of the best restaurants in the state by far, the food is amazing, they always have new and delicious specials. Great drink specials...the happy hour is incredible, not to mention the amount of food you get for the price point. With the cost everything right now, to be able to go to a restaurant and get a ton of food for you hard earned money is a very comforting thing. The waitstaff is always great and very accommodating, and the manager Jamie is with out a doubt one of the most attentive and amazing I know.

    Beautiful setting, attentive servers, prices are nuts! $50 for lamb chops is extreme! I had the lemon chicken asked for double veg, no potato. Did not receive double veg, wrong dessert brought. Delicious martini and beautiful restaurant

    This was some of the worst restaurant service I have ever experienced. Our server was so incredibly rude.

    Disappointing dining experience. The noise level in the restaurant was off the charts. Could not have a conversation without yelling across the table. Our server was great, but felt the food order was very rushed and then waited much too long for the bill and for her to pick up the payment. By that time we just wanted to get out of the restaurant. Food was mediocre. I have had the John Dory sea bass several times and it was good, but this time the fish was mush and the dish had very little flavor. If it weren't for the location I wouldn't waste the money.
