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.

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.

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.

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...More

Not big into gift cards at restaurants, but I'd be surprised if they didn't. I like reeiving them, and use them, it's just my clients give them to me and those I would give gifts to I buy more expansive gift cards where... More
