Special Experience

The Gandy is always our "Go-To" special place for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Pricey, but usually worth it.....& no higher than some other places around town these days......like Ruth's Chris Steak House, The Chop House, Zingerman's, etc.

My husband and I went to the Gandy Dancer for our year and a half anniversary. The atmosphere was pretty romantic and I was impressed with the beauty of the restaurant as well as the lighting... That being said, I have a pretty high intolerance to dairy and wasn't so impressed with our waiter's knowledge of the menu (he brought... More

Went for a family dinner to celebrate daughter's graduation. Food and service both very good and location and atmosphere definitely memorable. Perfect spot for a dining experience you want to remember.

This restaurant is in a former train station. It is attractive, and the food is pretty good, but it is very overpriced.

The moment you arrive for the complementary valet parking, the buzz of excitement at the tables, you know you are in for a great night of food & drinks. Service was exceptional & the food was exquisite. Our party of 7 left very satisfied.

Used to be a big fan of this family of restaurants, but I have discovered as in their other locations they no longer seem to be on top of the food game. The food was good, but for the price it does not stand out as memorable. The wine list is still good, but the entire experience seemed "old". To... More

This longtime favorite restaurant has had its ups and downs in terms of quality and service. We decided to give it another try for an after theater dinner. Two of us ordered a fresh fish grilled in olive oil, which arrived dry, tasteless, and in a very small portion (even for me on a diet). We requested extra vegetables instead... More

Went to this beautiful and very elegant restaurant to celebrate our daughters graduation at 9pm on Sunday, graduation week. The food was excellent, but the service was terrible. The waiter greeted us claiming that it had been a long and busy week and seemed to be in a hurry to see us leave. He expected us to order without giving... More
