Reviewed yesterday NEW

Good food and service but very noisy - not a place to go and have a conversation. Atmosphere is very chrome and glass with lots of hard surfaces which accounts for the noise. Also some tables very crowded.

We have been to Gezellig on a number of occasions. Sunday brunch being our favourite, diner definitely the least. We decided to try lunch when we both had a day off together. What an amazing meal! We had the wine pairing and two plates from a large selection on the menu. All four of our dishes were delicious and we... More

This was the first time at this restaurant. Very simple and inviting decor. We started with crab cake and mussels and both were excellent. Then scallops and steak. My scallops were very good - you don't get a ton on plate but very tasty and beautifully presented. The steak my husband had was great - tried a bite and was... More

Not surprisingly, we were very, very pleased with everything. The service was helpful and friendly. The food and drinks were top notch as well. Presentation of the dishes was absolutely beautiful. We... More

Went to Gezellig last Friday for a birthday and I must says, the overall experience was very good but not excellent. The Service was good but not extraordinary. The location and the actual environment was very good, cozy and inviting. I took the salmon which was a very small and my partner took the scallops which were small and lack... More

My girlfriend and I went there for dinner. We had 4 appetizers and 1 main course because we like to share when we are trying new restaurants. The waiter was really knowledgeable and recommended a good bottle of wine that paired really well with every dish. The service was as good as the food and the ambiance was great.
