Our dinner was great, the drinks were perfect, but the best part was that we had not been to Trabue in over a year! We were seated quickly, attended to by a simply amazing waitstaff, and ( oh yes) the food was delicious! It's really difficult to maintain quality, but the owners have found the secret.

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
