I've had three lunches here in a short span of time and was delighted. The clam chowder is terrific, creamier than anybody's around here. The hot fresh bread they serve has a light pesto basting that is wonderful. I've had the Reuben sandwich, the fish...More

Dined with another couple in this lovely restaurant. Nicely decorated and comfortable. Bread is fresh from local bakery. Whitefish, Ahi salad, delmonico steak and ribs all were excellent. Vineyard salad had too much dressing though. Waitress although attentive was a little clumsy spilling a glass...More

Our service was slow our food was not cooked properly (burned). I spent over $100 for dinner for two people and expected more. It's not often that we get to go out for a date night and this was a total bust.

Recently went there and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service. The food was good, but not great. My wife's entree was not served hot, but they remedied the problem quickly. My swordfish "special" was creatively put together, and tasty, but overcooked and a little...More

We went to Gilbert and Blakes to celebrate my husbands birthday. Service was good, a lot of food, which counterbalances the high prices. We had plenty leftover from both our entrees for lunch the next day as well. Fish and steak were both very good.

Not big into gift cards at restaurants, but I'd be surprised if they didn't. I like reeiving them, and use them, it's just my clients give them to me and those I would give gifts to I buy more expansive gift cards where... More
