Again, an excellent experience. We always ask for Ossie as our waiter and it was wonderful. Excellent Striped Bass entree special, Lobster Fettuccini, drinks - all with first class service. Our fav place for fine dining.

Fantastic special occasion dinner! Our server Matt was very knowledgeable and super helpful with our beverage selections. From pre-dinner cocktails to wine with our meal he was spot-on! We split the appetizer version of homemade gnocchi with shortribs which we both decided was the best we have ever had.... and the Lobster Fettucine and Sea Bass entrees were delicious. Can't wait to go back!

This was the 3rd visit my husband & I had to this restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised by fine quality of the food; after being minimally impressed previously. Both of the entrees we enjoyed were quite flavorful & the salmon entree was a more than adequate serving.
However we found the prices to be significantly higher that similar fine dining resturants: a bowl of soup for $16 and most appetizers in that price range or higher. Similarly wine by the glass was priced $3 to $5 higher than we've found @ other fine restaurants. These factors decrease our interest/ability to return to Gibraltar much as we would enjoy it.

Excellent food, great service. The only ‘complaint’ is what they call blinis for the caviar. Don’t call 5 tiny hard crisps (that I can buy @ Giant) ‘blinis’ as per definition blinis are to be soft & there should be enough for a tin of caviar: “pancakes made with yeast and either white or buckwheat flour and traditionally served during Shrovetide with caviar and sour cream”.

The Hostess was a little rude to my friend, said we were 8 minutes late and there were no tables available. We did arrive on time but spent 10 minutes looking for the restaurant which could use a lighted sign. Anyway, the Manager was quite nice and found us 2 seats at the bar and less than a minute later....a table. Our table service was just fine and the food was good, but the Hostess set a bad tone for the evening.

Food was excellent and they easily accommodated a vegetarian dinner. I didn’t love their requirement of a $25 deposit on making the reservation. I almost went elsewhere. The service was experienced and professional.

This was our first time to Gibraltar and I am now planning to go there every birthday! Such a peaceful atmosphere and they treated us like royalty. The food was to die for. Especially the oysters, you have to try the blueberry mint cosmo. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Our server was incredible!

Our service was remarkable. Victoria was an excellent waitress. My husband ordered the Ribeye special to be cooked medium rare. The steak was blue, barely seared and more than half of it was gristle and fat. Very disappointing but the service and ambience was great. Next time around we’ll stick to the seafood!

Great experience! My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and immediately when we sat down our waiter said happy anniversary (marked that as an occasion on Open Table) Gram was so attentive kind and helpful in making our food and drink selections. The Blueberry Mojito was so good! We were a bit cold at the beginning and end of our meal (sitting still/not eating etc.) other than that great atmosphere. Everyone was so nice. We even got some fruit on a plate that had “Happy Anniversary” on it in chocolate. Definitely helped make this one of the best anniversaries we have had. Food was delicious but I personally would have preferred more cheese in my lobster fettuccine. Overall amazing experience everyone should go here!

We chose Gibraltar for our anniversary dinner because it’s one of our favorite Lancaster restaurants. We had the outdoor patio to ourselves and it was lovely, thanks to the heaters. Keira and Zach took great care of us, and Zach took a lovely picture so we will always remember the night!

Our waitress was excellent. She listened to my friend describe the kind of wine that she would like and the recommendation was perfect. She had the best sense of humor, which was needed. All of the staff worked so well together as a team. We were checked on regularly, but in an unobtrusive way. The food was excellent, my husband wanted his vegetables to be warmer, but the plates were warmed.
Overall, we had a very delightful evening and drove from the southern end of the county to dine there. We were not disappointed in any way. Looking forward to when we can return.
