Surprised at the high rating. Our second time for dinner and convinced us it is not worth going back. Our 2 appetizers were excellent, but the swordfish main although good was not noteworthy. Too soupy and somewhat bland. My wife's pasta, cavatelli/broccoli/pork something was green mush. Of course at $35 it was definitely not worth it. I can get a... More

We ate dinner at this beautiful restaurant on a lovely summer evening. We asked to be seated outside and were seated on the beautiful front porch. The service was fantastic. The food was spectacular. For appetizers we had the Buratta and a special app with crabmeat and corn. Both very delicious. For entrees we had the bone-in filet mignon and... More

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere were all on point. In addition, the owner visiting the table to have a chat was a nice touch.

Wow what a treat so delicious. It was so beautiful and romantic. Excellent service and fantastic menu. Ate off the tasting menu. The salmon was not a table favorite but everything else was spectacular. Expensive but worth it

We ate at The Gables for our anniversary. The restaurant setting is so charming, the flowers were beautiful. Our server and the assistant servers were attentive and kind. The menu is very pricy-be warned. My husband had the duck with lentils and mustard greens as accompaniments. I had the Viking Village scallops with artichoke, asparagus and lemon risotto. We were...

The Gables has been on this location for many years. The decor is wonderful, whether you are sitting out back in the garden, in the indoor dining rooms, or on the deck. The menu offers a wide variety of appetizers, a nice selection of entries, and salads, and very nice deserts. Once inside you feel more like you are in... More

If you are looking for old world charm with modern dining and of course bring your own wine, then this is the place. A step out of the beach mode vacation and a step into romance and history. The food was delicious, our waiter was top notch and the garden in which we ate was beautiful. If you are looking... More

This restaurant used to be my favorite restaurant on the island. I have visited frequently. Went there last night and was very disappointed with both the service and the food. The steak we ordered was basically raw and when It came back it was dry. For $57 I would expect better service and better food. I sent my niece there... More

My husband and I couldn't have had a more perfect evening. From the moment we entered this storybook setting, we were graciously greeted by the attentive staff, escorted to a lovely table in a romantic setting, and enjoyed the most delicious dinner. I usually don't order dessert, but we decided to share one. It was an elegant version of "S'mores"... More
