We liked the warm demeanor of the French waitress and the atmosphere. The food was better than expected. The entire meal was much better than we expected based on some of the negative reviews we read on Yelp.

We went on a Sunday evening and had 8:00 PM reservations. We had no problem being seated in a timely manner, despite what some of the a Yelp reviewers had posted. The restaurant was fairly well open. Yes, the meal lasted about 1:45, but we found that to be a nice change from the quick table turn restaurants out there.

good service.

the 4 course meal was similar price as their offering. later found out that same meal was $30.50 per person, and I paid $55. for two. problem was that I had to put 18% tip on the $107 travel zoo regular cost tab. soup was delicious but entrees were so so.

The food, from beginning to end, was absolutely fantastic. The menu choices for the vouchers were plentiful, each course was more than enough food, and the entire dinner was an epicurean delight. The service, from the seating to the final bill, was faultless. Each person that waited on us was attentive and very sociable, as well as extremely knowledgeable of everything on the menu. We will DEFINITELY return to Gemmells many times and suggest you do too.

If TRAVELZOO offers the Gemmell vouchers again, I can't tell you how much you should purchase them... in quantity... and avail yourselves of one of THE best meals you will ever have!
