"Unfortunately we had to listen to the upstairs' dance floor being remodeled during the lunch hour. Very disturbing. Too bad they didn't take a lunch break so the guests could enjoy their meal without competing with all the bumps, hammering, and movement going on over our heads."

"I have enjoyed Gables in the past, but tonight was disappointing for extremely slow service. Loved the piano player, and the room was not overly noisy allowing good conversation for a table of seven. Food was okay, but not as good as in the past. Might be a while before we return."

"We used to love this place, but they must have changed hands, and chefs. And bartenders. They used to have great artisanal cocktails, but now the only things you can get besides beer and wine are martinis. And the food used to be so much more interesting. I had a totally flavorless veal shank that was way overpriced. We will not be back."

"We had been to Longwood Gardens and went here because we had been there years before. It was still good and the service was particularly good on a busy night. The pecan pie my wife had for dessert (we shared) was simply wonderful. The entrees were good but not outstanding. As the crowd dissipated the noise level got better."

"I treated my family to the Gables (10 of us) after we had enjoyed the Longwood Gardens Christmas display. The dining room was festive and service was friendly. We are all seafood lovers and found lots to choose from. The grouper and salmon were done to perfection. I also appreciated that the noise level was low even though the dining room was full."

"Picked the Gables for a Christmas Eve dinner for my wife and I and our two adult daughters. To be honest, I picked it because of its proximity to the Brandywine Museum, but what a great pick. We arrived early and cooled our heel at the pounded copper bar. The ladies had a few creative cocktails while I was impressed with a nice little beer selection including the somewhat rare Devil's Milk Barleywine. The Gables was beautifully and tastefully decorated for the holidays and they sat us upstairs because the bartender tipped us off about the guitarist/singer who would be starting shortly. So drinks are great; ambience was great; greeting was great ... but the food was out of sight. Not a single part of any of our meals was less than delectable. Beautifully mixed flavors with locally-sourced ingredients in portions not too big nor too small. Our waiter, Mike, showed the perfect balance between service and just leaving us be to enjoy. Even though we live some 40 minutes away, we'll definitely be coming back."

"Beautiful little gem hidden in Chadds Ford, PA. Bartenders are so friendly and accomodating. Food is delicious as well. Good for an after work drink @ the bar or a cozy dinner for two."

"was packed for Christmas Eve. Still the kitchen ran well, and so did the service. All was done well. As a foodie, I think it was average good in the selection. but what was presented was done well."

"Food and service were great. But restaurant was quite loud. People from one group allowing there children to run around. Not as quiet or romantic when others allow their children to use the area as a playground."

"We hadn't been to The Gables in about a year and this visit told us why. The service was inattentive (we would have ordered another drink, discussed our entrees after they had been dropped off and tried, requested more water, etc.). The restaurant was busy, but they should expect to be so during the holiday weekends. The food was just okay, from the appetizers to the desserts, although the pecan pie was outstanding. The fish entree for two parties was very salty, and my halibut needed a little more seasoning. Sorry, we can't recommend the restaurant but judging from the bar, I assume it has its friends."
