Reviewed May 10, 2013

What a great place. Short menu, but so good! The inside is very comfortable and trendy, and outside seating is very nice, under trees, but you do have a road noise fairly close. But overall, loved this place!

“Incredible anniversary dinner”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Looking for a memorable anniversary dinner we decided to try Trabue in Punta Gorda which is located in the next town over from where we live. The drive was well worth It, because from the perfectly made dirty martinis through the end of dinner the experience was memorable. The service from Josie was incredible making us feel special, and the quality, preparation, and presentation of the food matched the service. They were happy to cork the remaining wine so we could finish the bottle at home avoiding DUI possibilities. We both loved the décor and atmosphere. Also I want to mention the fabulous bread because I love good bread with my meal. We will definitely be returning for more meals and telling our friends.

“Delicious food and excellent service at Trabue!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We enjoyed a great dinner at Trabue, recently. Linda, our server was attentive and yet did not rush us. We started off with escargot crostini and a heirloom beet, feta, and orange salad. Delicious was the best word for these starters and they were served with warm crusty bread. There is a good selection of both red and white wines, to choose from to complement the meal. The mains we enjoyed were mahi with an orzo puttanesca and Brussels sprouts and a grilled salmon with mushroom and asparagus ragout. They had four choices for dessert( chocolate cake, crime brûlée, cheesecake and carrot cake) all made in house. They offer seating on the patio, with entertainment, as well as inside. Overall, a great dinner!

“Outstanding Food!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Trabue has a unique and eclectic environment. The lighted bar and vaulted wood ceilings create a sophisticated atmosphere. The chef sat us and later came to our table to see how our food was. Everything was delicious. The braised beef was incredibly flavorful and tender. My husband had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. My mother-in-law had the pappardelle with beef and mushrooms and loved it! The portions were generous, not tiny like you find in some upscale restaurants. We will definitely return to try the other menu items!
