From the start should have turned around and went elsewhere. So many empty tables yet it took a while to decide where to seat my family and I. Prices were higher than I expected so normally that equates to great food. Ehhhhhh, not really. Portion sizes were small as well. Skipped the dessert as we all felt we've contributed enough....

Gusto is a good local spot for the above mentioned title. Menu is not huge but has a noice choice of food. Some delicious specialty cocktails and wine and beer choices are available. Usually crowded on the weekends but haven't had to wait a crazy amount of time for a table. The wait staff has always been prompt and courteous.... More

This is an American restaurant with a limited menu. The service was very good. The food was very good. Even the bar drinks were excellent.

Nice to have pretty new place in town. Super waitress. Food was pricey & nothing special . The desert on the price fixed -the vanilla Carmel was the best. I

Had a nice brunch with my family here this morning. Since we can't all be together for the holidays we decided to have a pre-Christmas brunch at Gusto Grill. The place was a little quiet, as it would be this time of year, but it was perfect for US. The brunch menu had some interesting and unusual combinations; Fried chicken... More

Great place to have drinks and enjoy a wonderful meal. Service is always good but it is always a packed bar.

It is a nice place for dinner with friends or for a date night. Food is yummy, well prepared, with appealing presentation. Really liked the interior design, service was good too. A little pricey so would not recommend for a family dinner.

We went to this place for a dinner and some drink. We loved the wine choices. But I can't say the same thing about the meal. None of us really liked our meal. Not that it was horrible, but it was so average, as if you have a McDonald's in a restaurant. Especially while this place price range is one... More

I really enjoyed my birthday celebration at Gusto's. I was looking for some where to go that was close, had a nice menu and an outside area to sit because it was a beautiful evening. Although the outside seating is along the highway, it is nicely shielded from view and after a glass of wine, the nice of the road... More
