I had the pleasure of dining, with a larger group, at The Gables. What a wonderful experience! The staff was perfect from service to presentation. The food was awesome... AWESOME! nothing more to say! The decor was classy but a bit eclectic and for a beach location not too stuffy to still be beach comfortable.

My husband and I celebrate our annual birthday dinner at the Gables and it's never disappointing! We make our reservation for a table on the front porch where you feel like your sitting in the most beautiful garden. The restaurant is elegant, service is top notch and food is excellent! This is a BYO so don't forget your wine! Enjoy!... More

It is hard to write an accurate review of this restaurant. The setting is lovely and elegant. The service is very fast and efficient - two of us had a three course dinner plus coffee in under an hour and a quarter. It is romantic and is good for a very special occasion. It isn't pretentious, but it does try... More

First of all the landscaping is beautiful... The flowers are amazing and the inside decor is quaint and romantic. We sat on the front porch and had a great time. It can be BYOB or they have a very reasonably priced wine list to choose from. My wife got the scallops and said they were amazing and I got the... More

This was our 3rd time here. Exceptional food.. Pricey but worth it! My salmon dinner was so flavorful.. My husband's sea scallops were amazingly delicious! Can't remember the last time I had a meal so exquisitely prepared!

What an incredibly sophisticated romantic oasis in the heart of the "Jersey Shore"! The food was gourmet... Loved the Watermelon gazpacho and the beautifully garnished beet salad. Sushi grade tuna and salmon cooked to perfection. While you are welcome to bring your own, the wine list is wonderful. Flickering candles abound, live piano music serenades and fresh flowers in abundance.... More
