We took our son to Gambaros' for his first fresh lobster. The food and staff were very attentive,friendly and made our son feel very special. A birthday cake surprise was much appreciated. A wonderful family experience.

As expected great food and terrific service. Food delicious . Everyone on table were extremely happy with their meal. A little pricey but if the food and service are great it is worth it.
