Carin and I found this restaurant online while asking for restaurants in Northumberland County. Kirsten and Dieter (our hosts) made us feel right at home. A beautiful room and a wonderful setting for a lovely evening with my wife. The restaurant has a good selection of wines and the food and it's presentation are terrific. The escargot are tender and... More

Had one of the best meals we have had in a long time. Pretty small place run by a very caring couple who have been doing this for a long time. They are seriously considering retirement in the not to distant future. Good for then, bad for you. Glad to have had the experience. ( Get the strudel for desert)

For a small place like Brighton this restaurant was a great find. The food was very good and the staff personable and attentive. Love the ambiance of restaurants in older homes.

We did not have a reservation and they were going to call it a night. We arrived and got a wonderful welcome. We enjoyed both food and wine. The woman's chef husband came out and we expressed what a wonderful meal we had. We chatted for quite a while and the both walked us out of the restaurant. I would... More

The food and staff are always very good, friendly and helpful. My dining companion loved the many varieties of Grappa and Scotch. The Gables is a gem if you enjoy formal, traditional dining. The schnitzel, duck and pasta are all great, as are the soups and salads. Desserts are also excellent. Paper napkins for lunch seemed a little out of... More
