Dined with another couple in this lovely restaurant. Nicely decorated and comfortable. Bread is fresh from local bakery. Whitefish, Ahi salad, delmonico steak and ribs all were excellent. Vineyard salad had too much dressing though. Waitress although attentive was a little clumsy spilling a glass of wine ( which made such a mess that we had to be switched to... More

Our service was slow our food was not cooked properly (burned). I spent over $100 for dinner for two people and expected more. It's not often that we get to go out for a date night and this was a total bust.

I have visited Gilbert & Blake's on multiple occasions on business. I have never had even a questionable meal let alone a poor meal. Most of my dinner meetings have included several other colleagues and everyone has always commented positively on their meals. This upscale restaurant and bar is nicely decorated with a window between the kitchen and the main... More

Recently went there and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service. The food was good, but not great. My wife's entree was not served hot, but they remedied the problem quickly. My swordfish "special" was creatively put together, and tasty, but overcooked and a little dry. The other two entrees were properly cooked and got better-than-average reviews. Appetizers were very...

We went to Gilbert and Blakes to celebrate my husbands birthday. Service was good, a lot of food, which counterbalances the high prices. We had plenty leftover from both our entrees for lunch the next day as well. Fish and steak were both very good.

I wanted to provide dinner for a number of guests after an even larger celebration of the birthdays of my horse and me. Gilbert & Blake's was the perfect venue. They provided their side 'den' for about 20 of us. To make it easier for the restaurant, I met with them in advance (along with having an outstanding lunch of... More

We had a party of 4, ordered clam chowder to warm up. It was served cold and the potatoes were not cooked through. Then we waited over 60 minutes for the entrees to be served. The main entrees were served cold, and ribs burnt, while the calamari was cold and greasy by the time it got to the table. The... More
