The food was delicious, good service. However we were seated directly under the air conditioning vent so we were freezing. That made the experience a little less enjoyable. But happy overall.

Excellent food and service in a beautiful setting. The owner brought our main course out (which was amazing) and chatted with us for a few minutes. When he found out it was our anniversary he had a delicious desert sent to our table. Our server was friendly and took great care of us too. Even the lady weeding the flowers in the yard when we arrived was very friendly and chatted a bit and wished us a good evening. I can’t say enough good things about this place.
Best in the city.

I would have rated the ambiance higher if not for the odor of the musty basement or crawl space that lingered although I am aware we have had a lot of rain lately.

I can not say enough about the service and that's one of the main reasons we return... we have never had poor service.

Value is average rating due to small portions versus costs but the food is very good.

Food was good, though I did find a hair in the stewed apples. They seated us in the ‘window room’ which by the end of the meal was a little to warm. Overall though it was a good experience.

Our party came to The Gates for Sunday Brunch to celebrate our mom's ( but this wasn't on Mother's day). The ambience was great, the servers were very attentive and efficient. The food was , however sub par. The roast beef was very fatty (1/2 our portions were fat0. The roasted potatoes were burned. The crab cakes were burned. We had to wait for the roast beef as it ran out as soon as we got to the carving station while the other food on our plate was getting cold.
Another piece of meat should be delivered while there is still some left so as not to run out and have people waiting.

Always a lovely place, particularly the several smaller dining areas and lots of windows. The food is always very good, I especially like the smoked salmon and salmon dishes, shrimp tempura and the "RARE" roast beef, delicious. I am not a dessert eater but my wife says they were probably only average. Service is exceptional without being overbearing. I highly recommend it for Sunday Brunch.

Exceptional brunch selection - with all the breakfast options you would want plus smoked salmon, roast beef, hot and cold lunch options. Desserts, including fresh made to order crepes, irresistible.

Excellent service, amazing food. Thank you for the birthday cake. That was a lovely surprise. If I could make one recommendation, please play music for the diners. The music would come on sporadically, stay on for a song, and then stop for quite some time. Since we were seated in such a small area with 3 other tables, it makes it a little awkward to hear each other's conversations. Thanks!

We celebrated my sister's wedding shower here and the staff was great. Our server was very attentive and they have reserved a more private spot for us. The food is great as well. We loved the appetizers and the portions for our mains are large. The only thing negative that I could think of is that the salmon was in a bit of salty side. Other than that, we had a fantastic time.

Our experience was for brunch and an excellent meal and dining experience overall. I would make one suggestion however. As we were sitting at our table eating in the fireplace area by the reception, people who were waiting for their table were lined up along the wall directly beside us and were watching us eat while they waited. It was very uncomfortable as they were there for about 20 minutes. The area they were standing was not a waiting area and also the serving staff had to pass by them going about their work.

Attended for Valentines Dinner. The service was perfect, the ambiance is awesome. We sat in the front glassed room that makes it feel bigger than it is but keeps it romantic and with a great view . The tastes were very good of the Valentine's Day special... Will most definitely return for those romantic dinners...

We went for Sunday brunch; have attended the brunch on occasion before. Service was great as usual. Food was very good, although the Prime Rib was cold when I bit into it. Stuffed Chicken with goat cheese and the Eggs Benedict were to die for. My wife had a dessert and she said that the carrot cake was dry. Seemed better on last occasion, but overall very consistent and with good menu items.

Great ambience in the main dining room. The smaller rooms are nice as well. We had the pork tenderloin and Ceasar salad as a starter - both were very good. Only negative is the dessert served was stale and the cake dry and crusty. The server apologized profusely and offered to make it right. It was no big deal and she handled it extremely well. Excellent server. We will be back!!
