Beautiful decor and exceptional service! Cathy the bar manager goes above and beyond! Top notch food & drinks! Outdoor patio is charming with lights and tables.. a True Gem in Punta Gorda! Great for a GNO, couples or romantic dinner! Be sure to stop in and say hello to Cathy at the bar!

We always enjoy our dinners at Trabue. The mussels and sliders were wonderful and the grilled octopus was amazing. Our friend had the grouper dinner and was beyond impressed with his dinner. Cathy, Tiffany and the gang are great and Chief Keith knocks it out of the park every time! Kudos to TRABUE!

60 of our closest family, friends, and co-workers joined us at Trabue for my husband's retirement party. This was the easiest event I've ever thrown! They allowed us to have the party inside the restaurant (versus outside on the patio as there was inclement weather in the forecast) and the festivities were 2 hours before their opening time. They provided... More

I went to this restaurant with a group so just followed the crowd, so to speak. It is one large room with high ceilings, quite lacking in atmosphere. When everybody got talking, one could not hear the conversation on the other side of the table. It was so loud. And I must say I have perfect hearing. The service was... More

We've eaten at several great restaurants in the Punta Gorda area and this may very well be the best. This is not a typical seafood-steak restaurant. Much higher level choice of fine meals on the menu. The mussels are the best I've had in this area. The scallops are also fantastic. Chef Keith and bartender Cathy definitely know what they... More

We dined in the garden here after our Christmas Lights Canal Boat Tour. Had excellent service by Cassandra and Christian. Liver pate appetizer is terrific! My cousin had the bison meatloaf and I had the salmon, both of which were delicious. Atmosphere in the back garden is fantastic also. We will return!

Quaint place in downtown Punta Gorda. We had a reservation but wasn't needed on a weekday. We shared the entire meal which included had the best escargot ever. Our server divided 8 Plump and meaty snails in 2 separate plates ( that weren't served and stuck into individual partitions.) We also shared mussels as an appetizer which was plenty to... More
