    We celebrated a birthday and our server did not disappoint! Between keeping our drinks full, to making sure the food was spaced perfectly between appetizers and the meal was awesome. He topped it off with a special piece of birthday cake with a candle! Made the night really special!

    Was just there for Easter brunch! Plenty of food options for our family who is not really picky or doesn’t have food allergies. Coffee was not coming often enough for my Aunt but honestly x4 cups were plenty for her! Had the Easter Bunny walking around which was cute! Overall nice experience!

    Overall I would give the restaurant a 4/5. While I feel like my steak was missing flavor the drinks and sides were really good. My waitress Genesis was phenomenal, she made my overall experience great and made sure all my needs were met. Will definitely try again.

    First time at CityGate Grille and it won't be my last! Started with the lobster appetizer and it was fantastic. Very light and tasty. Had the steak and risotto which was wonderful. Steak cooked perfectly and risotto was creamy and very flavorful.

    The food was horrible and extremely overpriced for the quality. The service was great, the view of the jazz player was obscured by the wall. The sound of the musician was distorted due to conversation from other tables .

    Went to City Gate for a Business dinner this past week and it was wonderful. Genesis provided wonderful service and our food was excellent. We did notice that the menu has definitely shrunk in size - everything fits on one page now and prices are a little steep. For instance, the Crab Cake appetizer which was FANTASTIC, was just one crab cake for $21.00. We'll definitely have to save this place for only special occassions.

    Being a local premium steakhouse, CityGate provides a good dinning option for business setting and private occasion. Recent late night celebration dinner for our sporting event was good experience where the service is friendly, live music and decent menu options provided. while flounder can be more tender, the steak meat cooked just right, though the burger I wish they offered the cut, so it is easy for kids to manage.

    Unfortunately disappointed in this restaurant, although it has a nice atmosphere. Ordered the filet mignon ala Oscar style and steamed broccoli, meal was lukewarm nearly cold. When brought to the servers attention, he apologized mentioned they only had 2 runners on a Sat night and took my plate away. Mgr approached our table with apologies too and returned within minutes with the same steak which was reheated or seared to the point it now had a crunchy crust., btw Oscar sauce was still cold on the reseated steak. I’m was hoping for a beautiful dinner and unfortunately highly disappointed in how they handled this situation. We had to complain further with the mgr to which he agreed to compensate the meal entree. Not sure I’ll return, there are lots of better steak house options with exceptional service

    This is a great looking venue. It provides live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. The music is generally jazz or popular played at a level which will not interfere with your dining experience. There is a small dance floor which allows for some limited dancing. It really isn't the place to go for dancing but, it is not discouraged. The food is outstanding as is the service.

    We had a table of 6 adults and a 9 month old! They accommodated us all with a great “ out of the way” table! Food was AMAZING! My husbands pork chop was over cooked to his liking so they immediately took it back and brought him another cooked perfectly! Not only that…. they then brought our table a bottle of wine compliments of them! Total CLASS ACT!
