Server was most attentive and pleasant. It was a special occasion and she provided a lovely dessert gratis for the birthday girl. Much appreciated!

The Sunday brunch at The Gates is absolutely exceptional in terms of quality and variety. And it did not disappoint! We highly recommend the prime rib and flambee crepes!

While our lunch experience was most enjoyable we were rather surprised at the condition of the upper floor. We went up to use the wash room and found two of the stalls out of commission. While we were up there we had a little look around and found paint and plaster chipping of the walls and the leather seats of several of the chairs in the smaller dining rooms ripped and in very poor condition. If you're booking a room for an occasion you might want to check it out first.

Couldn’t ask for a better place to take that special someone.
The services is beyond outstanding. Not sure what you feel like having for a drink? The bar staff is full of fantastic recommendations.
Want something note quote on the menu?
The chef will do everything he can to make it just how you like it.

Delicious food as well as a large variety. Prime rib was outstanding and it was nice to have au jus as well as peppercorn gravy to go with it. Crepes were also great as there was a variety of fillings and sauces.

Thanks so much, Wendy! We spend a lot of time and energy setting up our brunch every week so it is really nice to hear that you enjoyed it! We try to change it up slightly every week so that you can come regularly and not get bored of the same fare. Thank you for the support!! Ray

It was the first time we had gone to The Gates. The food was very good. There was not a lot of people there so it was easy to speak with all those at the table. The waitress and the service was great. Nice touch to bring cake to the person celebrating his birthday.

Waitress was friendly and polite. Food was over priced for the quality we got, it was under seasoned and bland. Bread basket had stale bread. It was our anniversary and they didn't even light the candle at our table....it was an over all disappointing experience on a special day.

We had a wonderful time at The Gates. Granny was a terrific server and the food was outstanding. The only thing that spoiled the experience was that there was a person at the next table with an over powering amount of fragrance on. These patrons should have been seated elsewhere or asked to leave. I would recommend The Gates to anyone.

My friends and I were there on Friday, July 5th at 7:00 p.m. The staff were all great and very friendly. Our table was near the sun room, where a wedding party had been seated. They were very loud, and I finally had to ask that the door be closed. This didn't help much though, because they had to move often. We ordered our supper, and I always order starters, because I never eat a big meal. The French onion soup was very bland, not beefy enough, and had too much bread in it. The salad was alright, but the shrimp I ordered had too much cheese and tomatoes in it. My friend ordered the ribs, and they were very dry. Although she didn't have to pay for them, that wasn't the point. She wanted to enjoy her meal. All in all, it wasn't a very pleasant meal, which surprised me, because I had expected more.

Food was excellent! Grounds were very messy, flowerbed and flower pots were full of weeds, entrance railing was rusty and outside trim was flaking. Building and grounds would benefit from some extra care. Our waiter was attentive and food was superb!

We were seated on the second floor which was not suitable for my 75 years old mother-in-law
She couldn’t enjoy the open buffet as she couldn’t go down and up again for any refill ...
Access to second floor is by stairs only.

Service was okay not exceptional. Didn’t really get the feeling that this place was worth the hype. Food was more like something I would expect from Moxies, not worth the $40 per entree.

We had reserved the Atrium but were shuffled into a much larger room.We were put beside a table with approx 15 people so it was quite noisy and ambiance wasn't what we expected.The server was gracious and knowledgeable about the dishes.However,she never came back once after our dinner was served to check to see how we were enjoying our meal.As we were celebrating my wife's 60th birthday,we had wanted sometime more cozy.The food was excellent though and made up for some of the restaurant's shortcomings.

First impressions make a difference. I would paint the rust on the bottom of the white railings when
one first enters. We arrived 15 minutes early, and got seated right away. Ambiance was very good.
Noise level was quiet, until a group of 12 were seated and the volume went up a bit. Tolerable.
Over-all was good.

The food and service was good, however I don’t think putting someone in the wine cellar without asking them if that’s acceptable is ok. For a premium cost ($45) sitting in a cold room, with no window seats, plus a long walk to get food is unacceptable. I had a guest in from out of town and this was a real treat for all of us. We were cold and uninspired by the table we had, kind of felt like we weren’t as important as the other guests. This room should be for people who want more privacy or special groups. I had a reservation and had I known we would have chosen another restaurant. Kind of spoiled the experience.
