Best dining experience in a long time. Waitress was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable and the food was cooked flawlessly. It's very hard to find this level of service and quality in this area.

My wife and I went here for a date night and enjoyed our experience. Our server was friendly and attentive. We chose to split an appetizer, side, and main entrée and both loved everything we ordered. We live nearby and typically would head to Lancaster city for a date but will be coming back here again. Overall the best meal I've had in Lancaster.

The restaurant was freezing due to the outdoor dining door being opened and closed. Really put a damper on the evening.
The bread basket came out cold so the butter doesn’t melt on.
Otherwise the food was delicious. The service was amazing as well.

The restaurant is very nice. Our waitress Gabby was very tentative. The prices are a bit expensive for this area, drinks especially. My husband and I both had the filet and mine was OK but his was well done and he ordered medium rare. We sent it back and it came back a little better, but it was still medium with no pink. Quality of the meat was not great for the price. The staff was attentive about trying to please us. It will be awhile until we return.

I took my daughter out to celebrate her birthday. Gibraltar is always a treat. The food was excellent...tasty and well prepared.
I had the mussels which were prepared in a delicious coconut red curry sauce, my daughter had the halibut special which was perfectly cooked and seasoned.. I enjoyed an interesting Fig Blossom martini and we shared a fabulous creme brûlée for dessert.
Service was excellent as well. We will be back.

First time to Gibraltars in some time. We really loved the ambiance, all of the staff was very attentive and helpful. We had the tuna tartar app which was very tasty. I had the the Gibraltars burger and my wife had the lobster fettuccini. Both were very good. I am sure we will be going back again.

We made reservations and had a hi top for 2 at the bar which is what we wanted. We split the mushroom/ polenta appetizer which was out of this world. For entrees I got the halibut special and my sister got the whole Branzini. Both were spectacular and would recommend. Our waiter was exceptional, ambiance was very nice. Great experience, will be back.

The food was wonderful, my appetizer (Kennett Square mushrooms) might be the best appetizer I have ever had. All three in my party were very pleased and had a great time. The service was very good and attentive and the bottle of wine we ordered was delish (however, expensive). We will definitely return.

Food was fine. Staff not particularly friendly. Owner/manager visited every table except ours. Seated us in front of door which was continuously being opened to service outside guests even though there was another door not near indoor patrons. We were very cold.

Overall, great place to eat and dine with family and friends. Food was very good but the only issue was cold New England Clam Chowder served. The server fixed the problem quickly and the remaining dinner was good.

Highly recommended. Not only were my wife's allergies easy for the server and the kitchen to navigate but my dish (dry aged strip) was one of the better steaks I've had in a while. The outdoor seating was comfortable with the several heat lamps they provided as well.

The food was excellent. Decor was was very nice. Wait staff was friendly. Drink selection was top shelf. Only thing we didn't like is we thought that the the music was loud - made it difficult to carry on a conversation.

If you like fish and seafood there was a lot on the menu. Not much else other than steak for an entree. Filet was excellent though.

Food is always excellent. However the portions that are already not huge (typical for higher end dining) seem to be getting smaller and smaller. The $18 lobster cocktail was literally 3 bites of Lobster. Our service was great however the table next to use, who ordered before us, waiting for at least 50 minutes for their food.

We sat on the patio which is next to a road, so there was some road noise but we didn’t mind.

The food was very good and served in a timely manner.

The establishment in its own right was nice and the service was good, but the food was not exceptional and the price was pretty high with very small portions. A very long wine list with no beer listed anywhere, and two glasses of wine that I did have did not meet my desires that I had expressed to the waitress. Not sure if that was her fault or not, but overall, the experience could have been better.

As usual, food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful. We sat outside and they have plenty of heaters nearby to keep you warm. Also, for those that are unaware, they have a nice kids menu. I'm looking forward to returning soon; one of my favs in Lancaster.

Food was great. Server was not very attentive. We are a young couple and felt like he thought we weren’t going to spend any money. We waited for 15+ minutes to order dessert, a 20 year port wine and cheese plate to go .. we ended up not ordering it because he took so long to come back to us. The menu was great especially for lancaster. I’d come back but request a different server. Felt as if the host staff was cold/stuck up vibe which sucks when coming into a restaurant because they are the face of the restaurant. A server in training who got our waters etc was super friendly and personable! Not sure her name but she had curly blondish hair and a polka dot dress, we would definitely request her next time!
