We have always had delicious food and fabulous wines at Trabue. The menu is very imaginative. Best mussels in Punta Gorda!

I am a foodie & hardly go out because I love cooking. I am very fincky, but from the ambiance to the service, & the amazing food, WOW! I don't live here, visiting family. We made a reservation since it was Friday night. We choose to eat outside, if you can do! The trees with lights on them make you... More

Went with friends for dinner. Food was good. Pork chop is a very healthy serving, tender and juicy derived over mashed sweet potatoes with baby Brussels sprouts. The beet salad was a nice change of pace for a salad, very inventive and savory. The grouper was done well and they serve it with a real heirloom tomato. The front of... More

By far the best restaurant Punta Gorda. Do not miss this place. Eclectic tasteful menu. I sampled everyone's dinner. Each one was unique! No need for salt and pepper shakers here

While visiting friends in Punta Gorda we wanted to take them to dinner as a thank you for their hospitality. They chose Trabue as they had been there with a local foodie group before. Loved it! We all had outstanding meals- my grouper was perfect, her scallops were divine, my husband couldn't stop raving about the short ribs and her... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. We were a little disappointed. Perhaps our expectations were too high, but no one in our party of four were overly pleased. Several in my party ordered the grouper sandwich. While the fish was good, the bread was soggy. I ordered the Florida seafood chowder. It was just okay, and not nearly as good... More

Trabue has a fun, bright and comfortable atmosphere with local art work for sale on the walls. It's a great place to go with girlfriends for lunch. The menu is light and affordable. The dinner menu has a good selection. I especially enjoyed the lamb shank special the last time we were there. My husband usually orders a seafood selection.... More

Met friends for dinner based on reviews. Could not have been happier. Doors open at 5PM for dinner. The wait staff and hostess were very attentive and pleasant. Noticed lots of locals coming for dinner and cocktails. A good sign that we had picked the right place to meet. Drinks were good. Meals are cooked to order so there was... More
