Wonderful experience. It has been a while since we were last there. The Gables continues to be an excellent and special eating delight. We would certainly recommend to friends.

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.

Food was very good, the room was pretty. It was just a little old for us. Also the food was good but not $100 a plate good. The service was good, but nothing over the top, very little interaction with our server. Nothing was wrong, but nothing was spectacular either. If money isn't an object, go for it, I'm sure you'll like it. If you've been saving your dollars for a night to remember, go elsewhere.

If you are looking for a quiet, intimate evening on the island I couldn't recommend this place more. Aside from looking for a good spot for a date, I also needed somewhere accommodating for vegans and other food intolerances - whatever was on the menu, they were able to modify appropriately. I am not one to spend expensive nights outs, but from the setting, ambience, and aura that the staff creates I am very pleased with indulging in my pocket and heart.

We have always loved dining at The Gables. It was beautiful and the service was fantastic but I ordered the bone in filet with an up charge of $30 on top of the $96 prefix charge/ person and I could barely eat it. It was so disappointing! My husband ordered the duck and he said it was delicious. We don’t mind paying extra for exceptional food but the filet was charred on the outside, raw on the inside and very fatty for a filet mignon.

We were looking forward to The Gables!! I haven’t been back in a number of years… the food used to be excellent.. not so anymore.. the atmosphere is still beautiful and the server was professional and attentive .. thats the end of the positive..menu selection was sad.. we had the ravioli which was fair and the burratto nothing special.. we both had the duckwas totally disappointing.. it was 2 large slabs of duck breast dry.. not sliced no sauce of any kind.. with blah bok choy and dry polenta cake.. really haven’t had such a poor dinner in a long time.. wine selection was good and dessert was a lemon custard that was good.. wont be back unless new chef..
