This is one of the best resturants around.

Had my birthday lunch there today as always the food and service were great. Chef Keith is always attentive and accommodating. The tres leches is the best dessert I have ever had and my favorite birthday cake.

This was a stop on the 3 hour SWF Food Tour so we only tried the Escargot appetiser but it was amazing. Other customers at the restaurant highly recommended other items on the menu. We were told the happy hour offers reduced prices on drinks and appetisers.

This restaurant has unique dishes, great drink menu and great atmosphere. When the weather permits it is nice to sit outside as well. Would go back again!

4:30-6:30pm at the bar. Half price cocktails or wine or beer. Under $10 bar menu of things like shrimp and grits (small plate but terrific), beef or pork sliders... Hard to beat. And the ambience is really upscale. A popular spot for locals and tourists alike. Very good and friendly too!

Fourth stop on a food walking tour. Had Escargot Crostini. I'd never had whole escargot that was so tender. Sauce was fantastic and on a piece of french toast. Awesome.

I would have given this great restaurant a 5 rating but the acoustics made it less than a 100% enjoyable experience. VERY noisy! The food is outstanding. I never eat meatloaf in a restaurant, but just had to try the Bison and Boar meatloaf. Wonderful! This was our first visit to Trabue. My dining companions had the Sea Scallops and... More

We dined at Trabue for the 1st time Saturday night and had a wonderful experience. My wife had heard others at her book club talk about the food but we never tried it because the restaurant didn't look inviting on the inside. We were blown away by the chef's food and presentation. Our meals were perfectly seasoned and the portions... More

I visited this unique establishment with friends and family and was treated to a satisfying meal by the executive chef, Keith. He was very attentive to our needs and made sure that our family enjoyed the evenings festivities. We ate in the cute little cottage that was a perfect environment for the type of affair that we were hosting for... More

Spent the better part of an afternoon at this downtown Punta Gorda restaurant under a shady grove of sea grape trees. Very relaxing. Nice wine list and full bar backs up an innovative menu. Service was attentive. I had the Black and Blue Salad which included blackened shrimp served over a split head of romaine with homemade blue cheese dressing.... More

I was in Punta Gorda on a hunting trip with a group of customers. We knew we would get in late, so I talked to Keith when I made the reservations that I was worried we'd be late for our 8:00PM reservations and he said no worries. I stopped by that morning to make sure, and he was still confident... More
