We continue to be amazed by Trabue and the quality of food offered. Our last 3 visits have been perfect. The Service and food is top notch and the summer food specials are a bonus! Trabue is a gem in Punta Gorda. Hopefully a big city doesn't snatch up the Chef.

We love going in for a drink at the bar or sitting at a table for a glass of wine. We always look at the menu, but then leave to find somewhere that we can find something we want to eat. i am all for unique offerings, but some basics on the menu would be good. I don't even think... More

When we raved about the mashed potatoes, the waitress brought over the chef who had personally made them. He introduced himself and proceeded to describe the reciepe. That service was way over the top. We will be back. Our meals were delicious and service great.

Trabue, one of Punta Gorda's finest dining establishments. Their food is so good, you don't want to stop eating. The menu changes based on local ingredients available and the choices are always great. I had a hamburger once that was without a doubt the best hamburger ever made. They grind their own meats and everything is made to order. Trabue... More

My husand and I went to Trabue for dinner on 8/5/16. We were celebrating our Anniversary. We haven't been there for a while and what a wonderful evening we had. The food was wonderful - I had the Best Prime Rib dinner it just melted in your mouth. My husband had the Swordfish and he couldn't say enough about how... More

We have been coming here every now and then over the years and enjoy Chef Keith's way of putting flavors together; particularly the wine and food pairings. The place has modern decor with a concrete floor -- accoustics are a problem for an intimate dinner. Food is presented very nicely and service is just fine. But, if you order a... More

Excellent service. Great presentation of food with taste to match. Chef came out twice to give us advice on wine and check back.

Two couples got together for a night out. Used the Happy Hour at the Bar. Ordered the salmon, short ribs and port chop, all of which were good to excellent. The music was not loud, but the talking and the music made it difficult to talk. If our table was more that four people, it would have been difficult to... More

We hadn't been here for dinner in years, although I had lunch here on several occasions during that time. Restaurant Week led us there and I was certainly glad it did. We had a three course meal and each course was terrific. We particularly liked the salmon on creamed corn, which was perfectly prepared and tasty, and the raspberry cheesecake,... More

We had dinner with friends and the dinner and service was exceptional. Tiffany was our server and her attention and recommendations were perfect. We had chicken liver pate for a shared app which is as good as any goose liver pate. I had the wild boar Ragu which had a rich smokey flavor. The swordfish was a nice large piece... More
