Gullivers has been serving great food in a great atmosphere since I was a kid, I remember my folks pointing towards A local celebrity during several visits and although long since dead the place is still quite magical. Olde English pub is the motif and unlike some places where dust has been allowed to accumulate the place seems to be... More

Had a really great experience at Gullivers restaurant. My wife and I tried the Filet Mignon and Ramon's Chicken to try different flavors and they were both outstanding meals. Great service from Rochelle our waitress, and very personal and attentive service overall. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a kind of old British Pub atmosphere, very... More

Slight seating snafu at the start - but they rectified it and sat us at the best table in front of the fire place. Food was all excellent - filet mignon was a tad overcooked - but made up for it in wonderful taste. Prime rib was huge and also tasted really good. Sides were plentiful and tasty. Cocktails were...

We were seated very quickly. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The atmosphere was interesting but warm and cozy. Our waiter assisted with the special requests made by our party and was very understanding. The food came quickly and was generously portioned! My husband had a "sampler platter " and I had the duck. Everyone on the table enjoyed their... More

For years my husband and I have been going to Gullivers in Irvine for special occasions. However, during the past few years we noticed how the quality of the food was declining. Last year we ordered a steak instead of the traditional prime rib and the meat was tough So this time we went back to Prime Rib on the... More

Ignore the reviews that gush about the prime rib. Listen carefully to these who say it is tough, lacking in flavor, and generally mediocre. The former reviewers have never tasted first-class prime rib. The latter have. For which, in Irvine, go to the Five Crowns. You'll thank me. Some specifics. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and the service reasonably good,... More

We had been to the Marina Del Ray and San Diego locations (both since closed) and were surprised when we saw this one listed on opentable.com. We were not aware the Irvine location was the original Gulliver’s and still open. I am very glad we rediscovered Gulliver’s. We started with escargot and stuffed mushrooms for my wife. The escargot had... More

Been eating at Gullivers for over 40 years. It an English pub atmosphere. Their creamed spinach, cream corn are excellent. Fresh bread and of course prime rib with Yorkshire pudding and horseradish. Yum it's good if you like this menu. They also offer entrees. Plan to spend about $50 per person with tip and drink.

You know how those early food experiences shape our palette for life? Gullivers did that for me. This was the first fancy steakhouse I went to as a kid, and I even celebrated my 16th birthday here (decades ago). So I asked hubby to bring me back for our anniversary. The decor was the same... I mean EXACTLY the same...... More
