Well the place is OK, nothing to fancy. Good service at the bar but the highlight of my night was the French Dip with fries that was quite good. Would definitely come back for another one.

Went with several people from the office. Although we had reservations, we still had to wait 10 minutes or so for them to set up the tables. It took 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive, and another 30 minutes for the food to arrive. The food was very good. However, we cannot afford to take two hour lunches, and... More

I ordered salmon, and also sampled the new york steak as well as the prime cut. They all melt in your mouth! We all but licked our plates clean. Everything is delicious!

My friends wanted to give me a special birthday dinner and we all remembered Gullivers from our youth. This is the last Gullivers standing. Our prime rib dinner included the famous creamed corn as well as the Yorkshire pudding and spinach souffle. Ah, great memories...I love the British atmosphere and the friendly, expert service. We were not rushed. They reseated... More

I had just flown back into town after my first automobile photography book signing for my publication called "Chiclet's Season," and we were looking for a nice place to celebrate. I was told this quaint little spot across from the John Wayne Airport was a legend in these parts for a perfect night on the town, and I have to... More

Ok I get the idea that Gulliver's is trying to keep its 18th century ambiance, but this place really needs to brighten up a little bit. Its so dull in here. we were seated in the area behind the bar by the fireplace (no it doesnt work). It was nice and quiet but the chairs and table were all old.... More

The food is average however the location is helpful for meetings close to the airport and the service is good.

One of my favorite prime rib restaurants. Great creamed corn. Spinach ok. Ask for the hot horseradish as their creamed one is too mild and tasteless.scones not as good as at Five Crowns. Service very good.

Our family went to Gulliver's for Father's day. We were seated in Rochelle's section. Sadly, I can't even remember the food because the service was shockingly bad. Our server, Rochelle, was seemingly polite to us but as soon as she would walk way she would be shouting "hey buddy" to other servers which was out of place and very disruptive... More

We came for a quick lunch & had the steak salad. Service was good. Salad was good. A bit pricey for 2 salads & 2 waters so the value isn't good enough to make it 5 star, but I'd be in to try something else.
