    Gaffers Restaurant provided the best venue for our wedding. It was absolutely perfect from the beautiful garden patio where the ceremony went flawlessly....to the exceptional quality of service. The menu was amazing, my kudos to the chef, as everything was delicious and mouth watering from the appetizers, to the perfectly done roast beef, to the fantastic array of desserts. Naomi was the best wedding planner and made sure that every detail was covered, and every guest was accommodated. All the staff were professional and very willing to help make the day perfect.
    It was so wonderful to show up at our wedding and have everything taken care of....Thanks again to all the staff at Gaffers! We had so much fun, we want to do it again!

    We just had our dinner here. After the salad, we waited for over an hour for dinner to be served. Very, very slow. One order was incorrect, and they didn't ask how anyone ordering the Prime Rib wanted it done. It was served mostly very rare, which was not at all suitable for one of our guests. They did compensate that by not charging us for the toasting wine. However, it was way too long an affair and put a damper on the rest of the evening.
