“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We did not expect a white tablecloth restaurant right outside of Sequoia NP and were surprised when we walked in. We were seated immediately at a table overlooking the river--a beautiful setting. I had excellent trout and husband had delicious osso buco. Our only complaint was less than perfect service--had to hunt her down for water and a coffee refill. She never checked back after food was served and we were never told about the specials. In fairness, she was new and hopefully will improve with experience. I would recommend this restaurant although the prices were on the expensive side.

“Great Location and Greatly Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

I was there with my wife and another couple.

Waitress was very nice, the Location was wonderful, windows overlooking stream and rocks.

The food was average at best, and the prices were over the top.

“A great meal in a small town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Just returned from a great trip to Sequoia & Kings Canyon Nat'l Parks. Our last night had dinner at the Gateway Restaurant in Three Rivers, CA. Not many restaurant choices in this small town. The Gateway was a wonderful surprise. Great service & a beautiful location with outdoor seating facing the river. The food was very good and plentiful. Coming from the SF Bay Area I did not find the prices to be expensive for the quality of the food we received. I highly recommend the Gateway Restaurant.

“Out of Bread out of Calamari out of Baked Potato”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We arrived on a Thurs night after a long drive in from LA. The gal and comfort inn recommended it. We got there at 8:00 Pm and were excited to eat there as we heard good things.
We sat on Balcony overlooking the river and ambience was very charming.
Now this place has fine dining prices so we expected a really good meal. The food was average and we were disappointed. Now granted they said they had had a busy day and were out of Baked Potato which they didn't tell us till 10 minutes after we placed the order for steak, Also out of Bread and calamari all the good stuff.
You think they might have offered us a complimentary coffee or dessert or something.. Nah

Everyone can have an off night I get it and can appreciate it .
I heard other people ate there and really enjoyed it.

“Great food with a river view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We sat on the deck and had a great river view. We enjoyed watching wildlife ( ducks, fish and possum) from the deck. We ordered escargot, rack of Lamb and halibut. The food was very good and our server recommended a really good wine pairing also.
