Delicious! A wonderful meal. I got the smoked trout salad and it was delicious. The manager even brought us two glasses of champagne since we were celebrating. Highly recommend!

In a party of six, three of us got stomach bugs from eating here. Multiply that with the fact that one person at our table was given fries with multiple hairs in them, and I don’t think we’ll be going back.

Hits and misses at the Gables...
Hits the meat ball app and patty melt - both were amazing.
Misses were the Brussel Sprouts - which were a bit undercooked and bit boring from a taste perspective - the real disappointment was the Kale Caesar Salad with Salmon - it was the blandest Caesar I've ever had and the ice cold salmon was flavorless - It was a healthy portion and I kept thinking if I mixed it a bit more the flavor would come through - I should have said something to the waitress but she was a bit overwhelmed at times and I just gave up on the dish.
Nice wine selection
Perhaps - go for the comfort food at the Gables and seek healthier options that also taste good elsewhere ...

This is a new restaurant as of 11/18 and there were no noticeable kinks they had to work out. The food, especially their salmon, was an exquisite combination of complex flavors, textures, and fresh ingredients. We really needed a great neighborhood restaurant that's not pretentious with reasonable prices, and extremely helpful service. It was such a great dinner experience, I wanted to return the next day for their brunch/lunch food!

This place exceeded my expectations. I’ve been here a few times and it keeps getting better.

Also, their olive oil cake is insane.

We had such a fun yummy meal at this place. If I lived in the area I would go every week. The vibe was chill California and the food was so fresh and tasty. There were a bunch of us so we ordered a lot. The patty melt was the best comfort food! The baked goods were all amazing but the gluten free chocolate cookie will make you question the need for gluten ever again and the carrot cake was the best I’ve ever had! The roasted carrots with avocado and harissa sauce were so good we ordered more and the salads and potatoes and kale Caesar were all on point! Plus, the front porch and chunky marble bar were awesome happy hour spots, oh and they had really, really great wines! This was such a great place to eat!

I had the lamb osso bucco and it was delicious. My wife had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly - skin was crispy and it fell apart on her fork. We had the apple cobbler dessert which was also pretty special. Service was really friendly and the prices were super reasonable. Great casual neighborhood spot

Will be returning soon for more of Chef Vicki's outstanding home-style cooking at dinner. Breakfast pastries and the buckwheat pancake are outstanding!
