Christmas Eve dinner was the best we have had in ages. The menu was varied and every course delicious. The waitstaff answered all questions, let us "save" some courses to take home and made for a relaxing dinner by the fireplace. Always a treat when visiting LBI!

Beautiful setting, piano playing with lights all around to enhance your experience. Pre set menu with multiple choice in the starters, 4 entree choices and 4 desert choices. Prices have escalated in the past 3 months so it is a place for a special night out. Price for 2 with tip was 300

Set menu is standard now and it's a well rounded menu with many great options - ravioli appetizer, fried duck egg on bruschetta, wonderful mushroom soup.
Pork chop was perfect along with scallops and skuna bay salmon.
All deserts were excellent including a decadent chocolate lava cake with pistachio ice cream.

The Gables is, without a doubt, the finest dining experience on Long Beach Island and, I would venture to say, in all Ocean County. The ambience of the converted Victorian home is magnificent and the food preparation is always spot on. There are many restaurant options on the island but none even remotely come close to the quality of this restaurant. If you are going to dine out while visiting LBI, this experience is not to be missed.

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice dinner at the Gables on Thanksgiving. The pre fixe dinner was delicious, well prepared and plated beautifully. Our waitress was attentive until it came time for dessert. We were never asked if we would like coffee or tea with our delicious desserts. Our overall experience was a good one.

Definitely the best high end restaurant on LBI, our fourth time there. Went for thanksgiving, $96 per person, three course meal. Menu and ingredients are “adventuresome “, portions are modest. Owners are nice people, nice chats with both. Giving an overall 5 stars even though I rated the “value” a 3 star.

We had a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner there. We have had several Thanksgiving Dinners there in the past previous to the COVID Pandemic. So glad we were able to go back this year. This will continue to be our yearly tradition if we are home in NJ. The ambiance was beautiful the staff incredible!

We thoroughly enjoyed our exist Gables. From the Brussels sprouts, the pear salad, the scallops and asparagus with risotto, the halibut and the bone in filet mignon the preparation snd flavors were amazing. We finished with Carmel ice cream and a piece of biscotti. The only negative was the biscotti was a little soft instead of hard as I prefer. Wait staff was attentive and the room with the fireplace cozy and inviting.

We had dinner there for our 4 year anniversary yesterday, November 13. It was beautiful. It set the tone for our Anniversary dinner. Very romantic! Everyone was spectacular! Even the owner Stephen came up to introduce him self! Lovely place and ambiance! As we sat down to enjoy our first course, it just so happened that a Beautiful string rendition of our wedding song came on! Coincidence or not! It was a perfect evening with delicious food and service. Thoroughly enjoyed it! We will be coming back soon!

We live in Beach Haven, the Gables is probably what we would consider our upscale spot for dinner. The building is beautiful the service is fabulous and we love the fact that we can do BYOB, bringing your favorite wines is always such a pleasure. Go and enjoy, live the island life, always buy the best you’ll never be disappointed…

Anniversary dinner. Proposed here 23 years ago. Definitely a special occasion must. Food was creative and outstanding. Busy but quiet with a piano player what's very good and playing at the right level to give background music without drowning conversation.

The selections of food on their 3-course fixed price options were varied, different, interesting, and exciting. Everything they served was delicious (except the risotto with the scallops had a bit too much truffle oil in it for our taste). The wait staff did an excellent job, very informative and friendly.

Only question was the wine selection - they only serve wines from a New Jersey vineyard. For a high-end restaurant, I would have expected more "well known" wines/vineyards from around the world. We did not try the Belleview wines. Suggest doing BYOW.
