The menu was interesting and modern. Would definitely recommend ordering the tacos! The only downside was the place remained relatively empty for a weeknight although that made for easy conversation as the general noise level was low.

Service was slow Ans lots of errors and the food was not worth the high cost. Crispy salmon rice bowl was just steamed rice and overcooked salmon :(
Drinks were good.

Food was good, but for the money we should have had better. We were the only folks in the entire place and while waiters VERY nice, food took much longer than it should've. Pricey - both for the drinks and for the items on every limited menu. Wings and tacos quite tasty!

Although our open table reservation was accepted by the restaurant, when we arrived we discovered that the restaurant was closed. I called and left a message for the manager to call me back, but the manager never did. Instead we scrambled and found another restaurant to take us for brunch. This was very disappointing.

Hello, Firstly we would like to apologize for the huge inconvenience. It is never our intention to interrupt our guests plans. Open Table should have never allowed reservations to come in as the books had been closed for the last two weeks. This is something we will be following up on and hopefully you reconsider your review and give us another chance to make it better for you and your guests.

While we made an OpenTable reservation for 10/16, we arrived to a CLOSED RESTAURANT. A sign on the door stated Gerrard's would be closed 10/8-21! Imagine our surprise.

Hello, It is never fun to have to read one star reviews on something that was out of our control for sure. Open Table should have never allowed reservations to come in as the books had been closed for the last two weeks. This is something we will be following up on and hopefully you reconsider your review and give us another chance to make it better for you and your guests. We truly apologize for the inconvenience.

I made reservations at Gerard Street Kitchen for a Friday night. 20 minutes before the reservation, I called to see if they had tent coverage (We had patio reservations and it had started raining). Thank god I called because the woman on the phone informed me that they were closed until next week. I wish that open table had not allowed me to make reservations because our dinner plans had to be cancelled at the very last minute.

Hello, As you mentioned Open Table should have never allowed reservations to come in as the books had been closed for the last two weeks. This is something we will be following up with Open Table about. We hope you reconsider your review as this was something not service nor food related but an unforeseen last minute occurrence that was out of our control. Also, if there is no email provided, it is hard for Open Table to communicate changes. We hope to have you back and change your mind.

Overall, really great experience. Only knocked off a star because it took 40+ minutes between appetizer and entree. Given the need for social distancing and what seemed to be a fairly small staff, we were understanding of this.

Food was incredible and it was a generally pandemic-safe place for an outdoor date night for my wife and me.

I love this place. I’m so happy to have it in my neighborhood. Every time I come there I am profoundly satisfied. They manage their high standard service and the topmost level of cooking they provide. On this visit I had crab cakes they were very flavorful and did not have too much filling. Last time I had The Beyond Burger it is the best burger you can get plant based or otherwise. It was juicy and tasty. The fries were great and not overly salty. Marlon was very helpful with our drink selection and was courteous and accommodating. I will definitely be back soon!

The food was delicious and the presentation unique.

Mains were subpar for this price point (steak, sea bass, etc.), appetizers about average. Drinks tasty and nicely presented. Service was poor, but I don't blame the waitstaff. I wouldn't return for dinner, but yes to the bar.

There was no one in the restaurant at 7pm on a Saturday, which seems suspect. Also, I had a gift certificate and to verify it with the manager, the server TOOK MY PHONE. That made me so uncomfortable and I deeply regret allowing it to happen.

We went there for restaurant week. Everyone from the front door host, to the lobby manager who offered me a bottle of water while I waited for my friends, to the hostess, to the waiter and the rest of the staff were all unbelievably friendly. The food came out fast but not too fast, and tasted great. Will be back!

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but GSK was not it. The atmosphere was eh and the service was confusing. The dishes were presented beautifully and the cocktails were delicious, but the overall experience was sub par. It felt like just another hotel restaurant experience, completely forgettable.

This was unfortunate. The place has potential, but service though very nice was very very weak. Entrees were average to bad. Needs a lot of work to operate in this neighborhood at this price point.
