Cozy and surprising

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... read 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

Came here for a gentle evening with the wife. Cocktails were unique, and rather potent. Tapa menu was also large, but we were disappointed in food quality. We ordered the lamb neck tacos, and the ahi spring rolls. The lamb tasted like old beef, and the ahi was very fishy. The people next to us ordered the tacos as well,... More

A group of 4 of us visited Ace after a nice dinner. We waited a few minutes to be seated, which is expected on a Friday night. The doorman/ host almost seemed surprised we wanted to wait, though I was a little disappointed in him when "directing" us to our table, as it was simply pointing into the room and... More

Ace Gillett's is a great place if you want fantastic food, live music, cocktails and service. The staff, especially Randy, was extremely helpful in leading us in the right direction to ensure our experience was great. We will definitely be recommending this place to our friends and family and will be back again in the near future.
