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

Sorry to be the bad news guy here but we just left quite disappointed. Four of us agreed the food was average at best, my swordfish was smelling fishy and both the wives said the Duck Confit was too sweet and non crispy. A pass from this group of four.

We came here as part of the southwest food tour with Laverne. The chef took the time to talk with us and to serve our escargot. They have a lovely patio and great happy hour offers. It was a lovely stop on the food tour.

Went there last night with friends here from New Jersey. We all had a very good dinner. The pork chop is an excellent choice. Double thick and marinated in their secret sauce. Was a little disappointed that the white bean soup was no longer on the menu but was told it would be back soon. The prices are a little... More

We took a friend there last night and had a reservation at 7:30. We were seated immediately and the waitress was there immediately to take our drink order. We had salads for first course and, fortunately my husband and I shared a garden salad which they served individually. Salads were excellent. We ordered shrimp and grits, steak and tuna for... More

happy hour lasted until 7 pm which really helped the drink costs. Four different appetizers and entrees were delicious. Delectable desserts. We love this restaurant and will look forward to other meals here.
