    Stayed at Gambaro Hotel and on our TV advertised it was lobster month February, whole lobster for$55. Our greeting at restaurant was lovely but our waitress Ruth honestly gave the impression she would rather be somewhere else. On asking about the lobster special we were informed this was not available on weekends, something we suggest you make more clear in advertising. I did have the lobster and it was delicious. We feel that as Gambaro is an iconic fine dining restaurant it has lost some of its charm. We felt rushed and the service was particularly average. An al round disappointment to be honest, would hesitate to return.

    The food was amazing - I'm going back for another Lobster. The staff members was professional and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - a great place to have dinner before a show in the city.

    The ambiance inside the restaurant was good however when we were there (Friday evening) the bar was very noisy - the music was loud as well as the patrons who were obviously drinking. It would be better to have a barier noise between the bar and the restaurant to make it sound proofed. The service was great and prompt, I may have ordered a wrong dish (John Dory grilled fish); the fish was salty; the salad that comes with it was mediocre and 1 skinny piece of Lemon.. i was expecting the presentation and taste to be more appealing and special, fish was dry - nothing special really. Maybe try another dish next time - but won’t be in the near future.

    Staff were friendly and polite, a lovely restaurant, there were plenty of tables but unfortunately all of the patrons weren't spaced out, so not so private, apart from that the food was delicious and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Beautiful food, excellent service, went for our wedding anniversary. I do think the tables for 2 people are very wide and therefore not as intimate as I would've liked. Other than that, couldn't fault it.

    It has been too long since we last dined at Gambaro’s. The fresh seafood, specially the seafood platter for two, is magnificent. Service was subtle and unobtrusive; professionally conducted.
