We went in early for our reservations and had a few drinks at the bar. The bartender was really attentive and made us some good drinks from the happy hour list. It was actually Halloween, so we had a special shot that was really good...More

The food was o.k., and the service was tolerable. I would not recommend Gabardine. We have had several wonderful meals at Searsucker (San Diego) and at Herringbone. We expected a similar experience at Gabardine, but we were let down. The waiter was slow to take...More

Wow! What a cute place. Located on a fairly quiet part of Rosecrans St, this corner restaurant has friendly and attentive staff. Look for the goofy guy with the goatee (I think they only let him serve coffee. No disrespect intended), he's a hoot! The...More

Tried Gabardine for Sunday brunch. One of the only restaurants in the area that has an "order off the menu" kind of brunch-my kind of style, since most brunches are both expensive and too much food! We tried the french toast (awesome and not too...More

We had just had a lovely walk at the bay when we saw the diving girl. We went around the block when we realized it was a restaurant and bar. We sat at a window table, bright and cheery. We had a glass of wine...More

We ate at Gabardine early (before a Doobie Brothers concert!) so it was quiet, in fact, almost empty. The menu is simple but adequate with a range of options from small plates to full ones. The fish and chips was a huge serving but very...More

We had a last minute group of 20 and it was Saturday nite, but Gabardine took wonderful care of us ! They have a long rectangular table towards the back of the restaurant, so we almost had our own room. Sam was our waiter and...More
