Ah, Gibraltar! Once again I've had a wonderful experience at this seafood-centric restaurant helmed by Chef Carl Vitale. Tonight I had the special appetizer, which was a complicated dish of seared, rare tuna ... and a whole lot of flavors and additions I can't remember (jalapeno sauce, pickled asparagus, microgreens, etc.). As an entree I had the pan seared diver... More

Gibraltars is simply THE best fine dining choice in Lancaster county.......and it starts with the menu. A wonderful variety of delicious salads & entrees. Yes they have just enough "organic" & vegan options but it is not exclusive and they all simply taste delicious which is really what is most important. Every great restaurant has friendly, knowledgeable, attentive service and... More

My sisters and I spent the evening at Gibraltar last night to celebrate our birthdays. We can't say enough about our server, Ossie! He was knowledgable, helpful and had a great sense of humor! My one sister eats gluten free and Ossie made it easy and the menu had great options. She had the salmon and might I add....she cleared... More

We stopped in Lancaster on our way to pick up our daughter at Dickinson. Found this place on trip advisor. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and our food was great. We sat outside on a beautiful July evening. We ordered mostly specials and all were wonderful, tasty and fresh. We will be back next Summer.

We enjoyed the crab cakes here. The service was excellent and the food was more than satisfactory in both quantity and quality. The atmosphere was wonderful. It is located in an historical building with many small rooms that are very comfortable in tone. If you're looking for a place for a fine dining experience in the Lancaster area, this is... More

Thank you, Gibraltar. You gave us a great evening for our parents 50th Anniversary. We celebrated our parent's 50th Anniversary at your fine restaurant. We had 17 people including 5 kids under 12 years old. Not only was the service expeditious and effective, but it was friendly and responsive and patient. In fact, you made the table of five kids...

We reserved a special table weeks in advance of our visit, but when we got there, it had been given to other people. Excuse: We lost your request. Things went downhill from there; botched salad, uninspiring food, and more lame excuses. I contacted the restaurant via internet and got no response. I called and talked to the owner, who agreed...

Service was friendly but flighty. My salad and entree we both given to another person at my table. Ordered the sushi roll appetizer and it was warm bland mush. Our table was in the shadow of a huge dead palm tree. Very average at best for a premium price. With so many new options Gibraltar needs to step it up... More

Awkwardly placed behind a college campus this restaurant was offers a pleasant dinning experience. The Raw seafood Plateau was delicious. For dinner I had the Scallops witch was nicely prepared with mushrooms and a potato casserole. The cream brûlée is divine.

A few days ago, we met a charming couple at the Greenfield Inn restaurant and asked what local restaurant they recommended for seafood, and without batting the proverbial eyelash they simultaneously answered--Gibraltar next to F&M. So last night my partner and I feasted on butternut squash soup that was THE BEST soup we had had in many decades, calamari that... More
