On 4-5-18 some coworkers and I attended a pharmaceutical company’s presentation at the establishment. It was the first time we all had dined at Gamba. The building is architecturally unique, but the layout is efficient. The ambience is romantic, which is great for date nights,...More

Service was pretty darn good the decor is interesting along with the building. It is in an unassuming location however unmistakable. The food was a bit bland for my taste

The food is good but portions are quite small and bring the brinks truck when you get the check. They think they are in Chicago with their prices. Ambience is quite nice but can't get over the prices. Way overrated.

This place is very nice. And the food is very good. I wish that the owner would be a little nicer. Unfortunately he can be quite condescending at times. The service was good from the wait staff and from the bartender.

I was dining with colleagues from work. They have a very extensive menu and wine list. The atmosphere is great. Request a second bread basket, you are you going to enjoy it!

I had the 14 oz New York strip steak medium rare. It was perfect. The whole dinner was exceptional with attentive staff and relaxing atmosphere. My expectations were exceeded and I will return!

There is no children's menu. They are very accommodating and can modify the foods served to make them acceptable for children. When my kids were young it was not unusual for one to have pasta with butter and cheese... More
