The varied and sumptuous decor in each of the four areas, the inspiring food selections artistically presented, the friendly and responsive staff, the muted live piano music and the graciousness of the hosts, Sondra and Stephen Beninati make for an unforgettable evening. We have dined here over many years and it never disappoints. The Gables is LBI dining at its best. Irene Nunn

We typically have eat at the Gables serveral times during the year. Both owners stopped by the table to wish us Happy Valentines day and to make sure the service and food met our expectations. It did!!!!

                                                              We have frequented this restaurant several times and always found it to be expensive but worth it. Our recent valentines dinner, our third, was a huge disappointment. My wife’s sea bass was thin and dry and my five sea scallops were ordinary.Both our desserts were dry and we could only eat half of it. For $270. Including tax and tip you would think you would have a superior meal. The service was great. But we will ever go back again.
