Delicious! Definitely Going Back!

We had the short rib sampler from Gatsby's a few months ago during a restaurant crawl, and had been wanting to go back for dinner. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Service was excellent, food was delicious. I had the mussels appetizer - awesome. Be sure to ask for extra... read more

Called ahead of time to make a reservation only to arrive and find out they never marked it down. Waited in the bar area for 15 min and there was no bartender to serve a drink. People began the get up from their tables and come to the bar to ask for a drink because their tables were not being... More

We had heard amazing things about Gatsbys on the bay so my boyfriend brought me for my birthday. Our servers were very slow with a nearly empty restaurant. I had the lobster special and it was cooked horribly. Rubbery and could barely cut into it. The Mac and cheese appetizer is delicious. I'd highly recommend it if you do go.... More

The decor is 1920s and very comfortable. There's an aura which puts one at ease. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. Once the trio started playing we didn't want to leave, they played the right songs and not too loud. Most importantly was the food. We started with mac& cheese with truffle oil it was the best m&c I ever... More

I have been a big fan of Nove and was upset that it is no longer here ... Well, I am actually still at Gatsby's and I am very impressed ! The Calamari appetizer was very tasty, the waiter suggested the Mac & Cheese and I - reluctantly - ordered it.... It was very different and delicious . Hanger steak... More

Fried calamari in hot peppers and bathed in capers? Seriously? Yeah, seriously, and they pulled it off, expertly. I was served a well prepared and presented Blackened tilapia accompanied by a fresh arugula, watermelon, plum and mango salad. A nice robust Sauvignon Blanc tied it all together. If your not sure of your wine pairings, knowledgable staff will guide you... More

We were greeted promptly upon arrival and seated outside as we requested. Our server, Ray, was courteous, attentive and knowledgeable about Gatsby's menu. He helped us select a delectable appetizer, the mussels served over polenta. While I'm not usually a fan of polenta, this dish has changed my mind. I had the branzino, yummy. Ray reminded me to request having... More

Decided to try them out when I found them on Restaurant.com. Note: We were the 3rd group to arrive early on a Saturday night. Upon entering, stood there waiting for someone to welcome us. Indoors and out are lovely spaces. We sat outdoors. If you don't enjoy hearing noises from outdoor air conditioners, street traffic or the occasional train passing... More

Had a Groupon that I purchased since Rick's Cafe went out of business. Better than Rick's! First of all, the decor is very inviting for a quiet and sophisticated (without being stuffy) restaurant. The owner, Sam, greeted my friend and I, despite having made the Groupon reservation that same day. I was overjoyed that the incredible violinist that had been... More
