“Great service and amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

We found this place by walking by one day, and decided to try for dinner on a Saturday night , service was excellent, food was very good, I had the escargot for a starter and rack of lamb for my main, both were very good, lamb cooked to perfection, read some reviews about this restaurant and the history of the house, we would definitely go back there.
They have a good collection of scotch and grappa, it would be fun to taste them one evening after the meal :)

“A gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a nice place in Brighton after a long week and a "get me out of Toronto" drive. Mission Accomplished! Wonderfully attentive service, excellent county wines (Hardy's unfiltered Pinot and Chard), and of course perfectly prepared schnitzel, tenderloin and salmon. Did I mention that the caesar salad was perfectly balanced and was GREAT with the Hardy pinot?

EXCELLENT!

“A room of our own”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Recently a few friends from Brighton school days gathered at the Gables for dinner. It was a treat to have a room of our own where we could have a good old visit - as if we were in one of our homes (without having to be hostess). To top it off, the food was DElicious.

“FINE CUISINE IN A LOVELY ATMOSPHERE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Gracious old heritage house welcomes diners to enjoy great food and service and equally pleasant décor.....how lucky are those in the Brighton area to have such a charming restaurant in their town. We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a fine meal - which we thought was very well priced - Escargots à la Bourguignonne, followed by Wiener Schnitzel - a specialty of the house - as prepared by Chef Dieter and served by his charming wife Kirsten. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and finished our delicious meals with a shared crème brulee and specialty coffees...Irish for me and B52 for my husband. The Gables is listed in the National Restaurant Guide “Where to Eat in Canada - we live close enough that we will return more often than we have in the past and we suggest if you are looking for a lovely evening with excellent food and service - you make it a point to reserve a table at The Gables in Brighton, Ontario. You will leave smiling!

“THE Fine Dining Experience in Brighton!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Warm attentive service greets you as you enter this gorgeous venue. Started with the warm sesame goat cheese spinach salad (loved the extra touch of just the right amount of edible flowers) - then on to the scallops that arrived perfectly done and closed with the creme brûlée (with arrived as a generous duo flavoured with grand marnier and amaretto).
My daughter selected the apple strudel and described it as heavenly - that delicate crunching noise as her fork went through the lawyers reminded me of spending time in fancy cafes whole growing up in Germany!
