I was expecting more. I had the whitefish meal. It was good, a little soggy, not great. Their bread is delicious. Overall, nothing special.

We had our Christmas Eve Dinner at Gilbert & Blakes (We had 18 in our party). I was a little concerned at first beacuse we only had one Waitress (Stepahanie). She did a fantastic job in taking care of us. She was very prompt in refilling our glasses and all the food came out warm and very tastey. She even was able to memorize the 4 kids names at the table just by listening to us talking to them, a very nice added touch. We will be having our annual christmas eve dinner at this restuartant again.

Where to begin? All 4 of our meals were wrong in significant ways when they arrived. Wrong preparations, wrong side dishes, special requests ignored (nothing difficult, like "no butter.") The vegetables still had the stickers on them from the supplier, the food was poor quality, amateurishly served and basic things like requests for lemon for the tea went ignored. We thought our waiter could be new, but if that were the case he should have had help. The whole night was a disaster and the restaurant comped all 4 of our meals. We left hungry and will not return.

I don't know what they do to the tuna melt, but it is really delicious and topped with cheddar cheese. It also comes with a cup of fresh fruit. Hands down the best. I'll never grow tired of their food.
