Last night was only the second time I had been to Ace Gilletts and like the first time a few years ago, I was happy I went. My daughter and I shared the Burratta & Beets to start and then chose the Wagyu Slidders and the Black Angus Flat Iron Steak for our entrees. All delicious, yet I think the... More

Looking for a dark, romantic spot where the wait staff dresses up and jazz music plays? Ace Gillett's reminds me of an old-timey hang-out with its dimly-lit atmosphere and wood interior. But the food and the drinks aren't old or stuffy! The food is creative and everything we had was at least very good, if not outstanding. The drinks were... More

We stayed in the Armstrong hotel above the bar/restaurant and went down for a night cap after dinner. The setting was surprisingly warm and inviting. It's dim lighting was really relaxing and the drink options were unlimited due to the extensive selection of liquor, wine, and beer. They offer live music most nights of the week and the setting and... More

Visited this place while in town for my niece's graduation. Found the place to be hoppin and cozy at the same time. The musicians were incredible and so was the service. Drinks were superb. All in all a great find!

Stopped in on a Saturday night with friends. We had drinks and several appetizers. The bar menu was pretty diverse and the drink menu offered a variety of choices. Ace Gillett's might be hard to find because it's a sub-level restaurant. I'll go back and try it again for sure.

We recently stopped in on a weeknight for Happy Hour. I enjoyed some decent wine for a special price. The bartender was both personable and attentive. Although there were no food specials we did enjoy one of the flatbreads and a skewered chicken app - both were quite tasty. The bar had a lively group of business folks drinking, and... More

My boyfriend and I had a fabulous dinner here. He ordered the lobster mac and cheese, and I had the tenderloin. It was probably the best cut of meat I have had in a long time. I was able to cut it with a butter knife, and it melted in my mouth ... So yummy! We enjoyed their live band... More
