Dinner was outstanding once again, and our waiter, Andrew, was a true pleasure. He made certain we had what we needed and checked back often enough without being intrusive or pushy. We even had the opportunity to spend a bit of time just talking with him. It was a wonderful evening of great food and outstanding service!

I had not dined at the Gandy Dancer since COVID, as this is my first time being back in A2 since. Waleed was an amazing waiter. He was very attentive and friendly, yet also allowed us to have some private time over our meal. The shrimp with artichoke linguine had a unique tomato based sauce. Shrimp was tender and portions was quite large. It was nice to receive the bread and crackers with the salmon spread, which dates back many years to the "C. Muir" days. We were excited to have 2 trains pass by while dining. All in all, Dane and his crew did an excellent job in allowing us to feel welcomed and have a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. I highly recommend the Gandy Dancer, for any occasion. Food, service and ambience were superb. I am visiting for only 1 month but I shall return several times to sample other entries.

The restaurant tends to be a bit noisy, but we sat at the bar which was pleasantly uncrowded. The bartender was attentive and pleasant and the food delicious.
