    Pickle platter appetizer was very good. The pork with grits and peaches was bland, mediocre at best. Definitely not a $26 entre. Presentation was good.

    Loved the venue and would definitely go back. Although I ordered my steak medium, it was well done, but the Brussels were excellent and my husband enjoyed the sole with vegetables. Really neat place in a cute area of town!

    The Gaslight Grill is in a great location in Clifton. I loved the open-air dining experience. All 3 people in my party enjoyed the food and menu selections. It is a perfect place to eat before heading over to the Ludlow Garage for a concert.

    The butternut squash soup was thick and creamy and delicious. The salmon was not as good- less flavor and dry.

    Wanted watermelon gazpacho and seared duck pasta - both on the menu. Was told that they weren’t serving the gazpacho that night and they had taken the duck off the menu, but hadn’t printed up new menus yet. So I ordered the streak frite. Steak was very average. My friend ordered the NY Strip Steak Steak with blue mushroom grits. She does not eat carbs so she asked that they sub Brussel sprouts instead. She asked for her steak to be as rare as possible. However, the bowl that was set in front of her was a shredded meat on top of Brussel sprouts. When we questioned the server we were assured that it the steak but they serve it shredded. My friend was very hungry and said she would eat it and when she put her fork into the pile of very unappetizing meat she came up with a peach so very clearly they had served her the shredded pork with peaches. So they took it back and said the steak would be out right way. It took over 15 minutes for her steak to come out. She said the steak had good flavor, but it was so stringy she finally gave up trying to eat it. Things happen but for a waitress to try and say that pulled pork was an extra rare NY strip steak and then make her wait 15 minutes while other orders are coming out of the kitchen is not acceptable. No member of management came over to apologize. They didn’t even comp her a glass of wine. Skip this restaurant

    First time we came was within the last year the food and service was excellent. This time the food was very poor quality and very disappointing for how expensive it was. Our server was very personable, but my drink took a long time and it took awhile to order after that. The food came out at a reasonable time but then after we were finished, napkins on the table, we waited awhile before being asked if we wanted to go boxes, which we didn’t because the food was not good. They didn’t bring our check or clear our plates at that moment and we had to keep waiting. It was not busy and often didn’t see our server. I understand that times are difficult, with that being said a $75 dollar meal should be well prepared and delicious. We were excited to go to the establishment based on our first experience, but will not again.

    We have eaten here several times before so I was happy to make another reservation, which you do need. Unfortunately we waited an incredibly long time for our food and all of the entrees were overcooked. My fish and fries was served 5 min. before everyone else was served, and my fries were so burned that they did not look like the fries my 2 partners got. The fish was also much overcooked and dry. My husband said his hamburger was overcooked and just not good. We will try another place next time.

    Sadly our entrees arrived slowly over a period of 45 minutes and so everyone waited for the last plate to arrive and everything was cold. No offer to reduce the bill but many apologies.

    The host and our server were both very friendly and very attentive. This is particularly impressive by our server who appeared to be waiting on every single table on the main/first floor. The bartender also made a very good Old Fashioned. The ambiance was great. The weather was great so all of the large windows/garage doors were open. The restaurant was clean and a very nice space. Unfortunately it took extremely long for our food to come out. We waited over an hour for our main entrees. The food was not reasonably priced. It was fresh and tasted good, not great. I had 6 medium pieces of shrimp and maybe a cup of corn for $20 which I don't think was worth it.

    Gaslight Grill was a great experience Clifton. Alas, they did not have the duck dish I was hoping to order. Life is never perfect, but the choices both my husband and I had were good. The peach pork was especially delicious. Our server was attentive and delightful. Recommend giving this place a try:)

    There were just a few diners in the restaurant, and we had to wait a long time for our food to be served. The volume of the music made it difficult to have conversation. Otherwise, everything was pleasant. I would recommend Gaslight, but I would also tell a friend about the two points I made above.

    The experience was NOT good from the moment we sat down. I let the sever, who barely greeted us, know that it was my mothers birthday, not even a happy birthday, nothing. Drinks were served one at a time with 5 or more minutes between each arrival. Bread was brought to the table, 3 slices for a party of 5! Then it was time for entrees, served again 1 at a time with more than 25 minutes from start to finish. Midway through waiting for entrees I asked to speak with a manager. The girl would not get him at first, but made excuses. I let her know I wanted to speak with the manager, not acceptable! Manager or owner, I dont know, finally came over and still we were waiting for one final entree. He didn’t apologize but began with making excuses and offered to comp the last meal. Ridiculous! Everyone’s food was cold, congealed sauces and not even edible. At this point I just felt like no one cared and I’m sure that was why the restaurant was empty on a Saturday evening. They did have enough staff standing around so I would have been more sympathetic if they had been short staffed. The icing though is when the couple next to us that had witnessed the whole thing stopped by our table to say this is how it always is at this restaurant!! They lived around the corner and had been there several times bc it’s convenient only. Dessert was ordered, manager did offer to comp that, too, great if you like cool whip. The worst though is no one apologized for anything. I’ve been in customer service my entire life. If I could give the place 0 stars I would have. It’s a cute place with a good menu where there could be a lot of potential, unfortunately an epic fail.

    Had the fried fish and chips this time and I was not disappointed! Hot, light and crispy. Just right. However, avoid the cold slaw. Too much mayo. Overall, fabulous meal and worth the cost. Chelsea, the bartender, is amazing. Great mixologist!

    The selections are limited but flavorful and unique. I think the limited menu leads itself to properly cooked and presented food. The cocktails were also really good and unique creations. I enjoyed our server who was helpful and engaging. The restaurant has a great atmosphere as well. I would definitely recommend especially if you are attending an event at Ludlow Garage.
