great food, great place, great service, like 80s band, recommend gaslamp, really good entertainment, great live music
kind of pricey.
food was all right. and prices were kind of high for me... might be affordable to others though. servers weren't too friendly, unless it was just the one we got.
i still do recommend gaslamp... but just like other restaurants, there are pros and cons...
Awesome. I came here for the first time last week and had the best time of my life. I will definitely coming back here
Scam. I've been here twice on Saturday nights and all I have to say is that the bar is awful. Everytime I've ordered Jack Daniels, they pour me Jim Beam...in a Jack bottle. Now I know that the times are hard right now but that is just unacceptable. You can't fill a different liquor into another bottle and expect me to be happy with that.
Gasslamp is great. Also great happyhourcard specials. This place is great. Check it out and tell them HappyHourCard sent you for an extra treat! Enjoy, Nick
Always have a good time.
I live not too far from the Gaslamp (about 10 minutes north) and I've been in a few times now and always have a good experience. I've had a few different dinners. My present favorite is the blackened swordfish. I've been on a seafood kick lately and also love King's. This is comparable to their dishes I think. It came with rice and veggies and it was all really well prepared.
I also enjoy the margaritas there (my drink of choice). And I was in for a happy hour recently and it was only $2.75! That's pretty hard to beat.
I've also been to a couple of the wine tastings on Thursdays (trying to graduate from the margaritas for dinner). The hostess is super friendly and informative. And either the pours are pretty generous, or she was flirting with me. Either way, it was cool.
I'm in my late 30s, dine out regularly, and feel totally comfortable highly recommending the Gaslamp. Everybody I've encountered has been totally welcoming and friendly and the food and drinks have been really good. Not to be too gay or anything, but there's a really nice vibe in the place.
Worst Food, Service I've Ever Had.
First, the service was terrible. The waitress was rude and did nothing to make our night pleasant. She was short with us, slow, inaccurate with the orders and somehow seemed unapologetic about it all. The food was downright terrible, almost inedible. My friend returned her "pesto" pasta dish because it was basically plain noodles. I sat right next to her and couldn't even see any pesto at all. I had the steak, bad call. First the waitress came and asked who got the salad like she didn't know who ordered what. I said I did. She looked at it and said "you had Ranch?", I said "No Blue Cheese" and she handed me the salad anyway. Nice. The steak was rubbery, the plain white rice was crunchy like it was scrapped from the side of the pan and the veggies were soggy and cold. Never got my last drink that I ordered either.
Now, I've heard from some reviewers say don't go to a bar for a dinner. But when the place advertises itself as a restaurant what should I expect? The whole scene sucked and I'll never go back.
BTW-It's unfortunate that a good, fun band like Knight Rider played at this dump. They really need a new gig.
LOVING FRIDAY NIGHTS AT THE GASLAMP!. Friday nights are totally awesome at the gaslamp with great 80s cover band Knyght Ryder, they rock! I love the atmosphere and the people are layed back and REAL you won't find any possers here just real people looking to have a good time! The only negative about this place is if you have dinner be prepared to wait over an hour for it! it wasn't even good and part of my meal was cold and it's quite expensive. This place is great for Drinks & Dancing only!
Awesome restaurant and great food.. I don't get it. The last reviewer must have no taste. That is the only way to account for him liking Yankee Doodle's over the Gaslamp. Sad!! My husband and I found The Gaslamp through our miles program. I had actually driven by a few times and had never been in. This place has come a long way since the old "LB" times. It has a great casual ambiance and the staff were all really friendly. My husband had the NY steak and would not share it - he liked it so much. I had the Gaslamp Burger which is a great guilty pleasure. I did order vegetables instead of fries and they were perfectly cooked. I ordered the molten chocolate cake for dessert and my husband had the cream brulee. Our server told me they make all of the desserts from scratch and I can tell you that they were awesome. The chocolate cake was definitely worth the wait. They have cool flyers on the table advertising all of their food specials and entertainment. They had a wine tasting going on while we were there and we will be back to check that out next Thursday.
Not sure where the other reviewers were coming from!. I was really dissapointed with this place. They advertise gourmet food, it wasn't and took forever to get. Atmosphere was a little strange - kinda seems like they're trying to transition to a night club - the crowd is starting to look a little scary, not like when they first opened. I can see it now - Live Bait all over again! Save your money and go to Yankee Doodles or 2nd street if you don't mind walking.
A Fabulous Evening. We stopped in for happy hour and had drinks and apps on the patio. The food, drinks and atmosphere were all excellent. We ended up staying for dinner, and were not disappointed. We tried the burgers, and they were even better than we had expected. We were still there when the band came in and they were awesome. This is a great place to take a date, or to spend an evening with friends. We will definitely go back often.
