I felt it was overpriced for what was received. I ordered the sea scallops and food came cold.

Food was amazing, service was spot on. Only mini complaint I have is this was a work dinner, and it was so loud you could only hear the person directly next to or across from you. I will definitely come back, but just with a smaller group. Great spot!

Three of our foursome ordered the chopped salad which we all love. It is very nice that the servers come to the table once this pretty salad is served to mix it up. The fourth ordered the steak salad which he enjoyed. A burger was also ordered by our very hungry guy. He enjoyed the burger, which was big, but said he has had some that are better. The service was outstanding with water being constantly refilled. The restaurant is noisy but the food is worth it.

Attractive and delicious restaurant on a main thoroughfare. Wide and complex menu offering rich flavors in simple ways. The room gets a little on the loud side, but well worth the atmosphere and good food.

Lovely dinner on the restaurant week menu. There was a great buzz in the restaurant. Clientele was diverse group of all ages. My husband had the fish soup appetizer and salmon dinner. He enjoyed it a lot. I had the original chopped salad and I scallops dinner, which I enjoyed. The waiter was very nice and spit on describing our choices.

We were celebrating two people’s birthdays. Our server, Shea, was very nice and attentive, stopping by often to make sure everything was to our liking. He brought us a fabulous birthday dessert, which the five of us split. And he even brewed us some fresh coffee when our original cups were not very hot. Our entrees were delicious, and we would certainly recommend The Gladly to our friends. We had a wonderful afternoon and, as is often our habit, lingered over lunch for three hours!

This was our first time at The Gladly, but we'll definitely be back. The space was comfortable, the service excellent, and the food was wonderful.

My wife had the fish special, which was a Japanese sea bass, which was amazing. My short ribs were also very good, and the cocktails we had were great.

I was very impressed with our server. He was friendly, professional, and attentive without being intrusive. We also made a few changes to our order and everything we asked to be changed was done perfectly. It's great when the front of the house and back of the house have good communication. On that note, the chef/cooks at The Gladly are on point as the food was cooked perfectly.

My one complaint is that the bartenders are too good. My Manhattan was so tasty I'm not sure I could order one anywhere else and be happy. This is the kind of 'problem' I like experiencing.

The space was a bit noisy but that was 100% the party to our left who was having a great time and no fault of the restaurant. May good times be had by all!

Visited The Glady for the very first time during restaurant week. We sat on the patio to enjoy the weather. Our service was fantastic and tentative despite it being a busy Friday night. The food was amazing! We had the seafood chowder to begin, which was a cup size and good leeway to the main courses which is the reason I gave this review 5 stars for the food. We had the scallops that I am still dreaming about, because they were cooked to perfection, and the duck meatloaf with foie grass which was delicious. We paired our main meals with wine. Neither of us was a fan of the dessert course which was the malted bread pudding, it was a bit dense, however we paired the dessert with the Old Fashioned and WOW! It’s by far my favorite Old fashion as it has a bit more sweetness which I think is just perfect, so we ordered a second. We had a great date night out, and we will definitely be back as our favorite items appear to be on their regular menu. Can’t wait to visit again soon!

I've been wanting to try The Gladly ever since a friend raved about it and it didn't disappoint. The food was wonderful and our server might be one of the most authentic and professional I have ever encountered. We tried the ice ball and totally enjoyed the process of having it made right at our table. Also, the bar didn't skimp on the drinks. I can't remember so throughly enjoying an evening in a long time.

Celebrating a friends birthday: Entering The Gladly we were met with a large open room, with tall ceilings, expansive windows and low noise level of lunch patrons chatter. Defining the space was a large wrap around bar with plenty of comfortable seating, centered tall booths, and tables lining the window areas. After checking in, we were led to a table by the window where there was a place card with "Happy Birthday" written on it. We immediately felt welcomed. We ordered cocktails and the popular Chop Salad. The waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. Upon arrival of our food, the server asked if we would like him to mix our salad for us. I recommend you do, the salad was mixed to perfection with skilled hands. The cocktails were good and the salad did not disappoint. The perfect amount of ingredients, skillfully mixed, with excellent flavour. Overall impression inviting atmosphere, great food, a nice place for lunch.

We enjoyed a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. From reservation to end of meal, the service was excellent. We received the seating we requested, and the host offered to store my mother’s wheelchair out of the way. Meal service was timely, friendly but not intrusive. My mom and I both enjoyed our champagne and sorbet mimosa recommended by our waiter, and her baked French toast did not disappoint - bready, moist but not soggy,with a nice caramelly crust from the maple syrup. The tuna poke was fresh, and our friend was quite happy with his chopped salad, a signature dish.

Went to Gladly for Mother’s Day brunch. Our food was delicious, had crab cake Benedict type dish and a baked French toast that was like a bread pudding. We also ordered That One drink and it was super tasty! The best part of the experience was the service. Our server Zach was impeccable! He came by at all the right times and was always helpful. Best service I’ve had in a long time!

My wife and I visited The Gladly on Mother's Day. While our only children are four-legged felines, we use whatever opportunity we can to pamper ourselves and go to this place. The food is excellent, the service is outstanding, and Chef Bernie has been killing it for years. It is apparent that the thought and preparation to go into these dishes are well-planned and the execution has always been stellar. Treat yourself! Dr. B

We met friends here for dinner. Overall, we were underwhelmed. The tables were sticky (really?), the service was slow, and the food was mediocre. I ordered the Waygu hamburger, which was dry. My husband had the tacos and he said the meat was also dried out. I did have a good experience with the waiter and bartender helping me find an amaro that I liked.

We had been to the Gladly a few years ago and found it lacking. Today, we agree this is going to be a go to place for us. We really enjoyed a five star experience. Easy res on open table. Greeted happily and seated quickly by the reception team. Wait staff (thanks Zack!) were simply terrific. They recommended excellent cocktails and were patient and explained things to us. It's loud in a good way in there and we are getting a bit hard of hearing which can be a challenge to staff trying to explain menu items and ingredients - but they did a great job with that. The food was in a word great. Salads crisp and fresh and of course the signature Chopped shouldn't be missed. The shrimp cocktail was four enormous shrimps and the cocktail/horseradish sauce was a zinger...delicious. Enjoy the seafood chowder - don't be fooled by the half filled crock...it was loaded with seafood and super flavorful. It was more than satisfying. The press coffee short rib is a must for meat eaters. We had the vegetarian dish and added steak tips as a protein...great tender steak with mouth watering grilled veges perfectly seasoned. Oh, skip the scallops. The parsnip mashed was good but the scallops just didn't make the grade compared to everything else. Still I couldn't take away a star because they were so well presented. So go for the Gladly...you'll be Glad you did!
