“Delicious”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We visited The Gateway to celebrate our daughters birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We all ordered different things so we got to try a lot of the menu all for reasonable price. The staff were very helpful and offered excellent service all in a modern setting.

“Amazing Food and professional service”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We went for dinner with friends and the service was very professional this time.
The food is of a very high standard great flavours and the portion size is decent.
They have also added a few new dishes but have kept the favourites.
We were very happy all round with the night.
Keep up the good work as Lismore needs quality resturants :)

“No service”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

What a disappointing place. It's newly built and the restaurant looks inviting but that's where it stops. We had pre booked for valentines dinner. At the time of booking we were told we had a choice of a pre selected valentines menu or the normal menu.
We arrived to a full house. Once we were seated we must of fell into the Dead Sea, because we had no menus to look at the person who seated us didn't even ask if we wanted a drink. 20 mins later and finally one of the wait staff came over and took our drink order. Once we finally got our drinks we asked if we could see a menu. When I asked about the valentines menu she said they stopped doing it as it was too complicated for the kitchen...
We ordered entrees and mains. Our entree came out after 40 mins and only when I asked how long did we have to wait for our meal. It was an hour between entree and main. Finally we got to order dessert and wait and wait and wait...
The food we ate was amazing cooked to perfection.
The front of house was hopeless and I know we were not the only couple disappointed. Some couples received their mains before their entrees.
I do hope management invest in properly training front of house. They really need to know how to treat customers and to work in a efficient manner. There is nothing worse than sitting waiting and not knowing what's going on or if your going to eat that night or starve.

“Dissappionted”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We have dined at the Gateway Restaurant on a rergular basis but after dining there last night ,Boxing day, we were extremly dissappionted. The service was terrible,there was none, the food also was terrible.There were 14 of us and we were finished our meals before a couple of meals came out, one was completely forgotton and 2 orders of chips were also forgotton.I used to brag about this restaurant as the best in Lismore .The young couple that were there and the staff done a wonderful job and made you freel very welcome.The food and presentation were of a very high standard. It will be a long time before we will be going back there.IT's a shame to see a lovely restaurant go bad..

“not happy”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

was not really impressed with The Gateway at all , the food was ok but very overpriced for what you got and certianly looked nothing like what the ads reflected, the service was poor and the ambience was almost like a bistro feel not the fine dining restaurant it is portrayed to be
