Great food on all fronts, although pricey. I do love going here, but the prices usually necessitate a special occasion. Really can't say enough good things about it!

Food is fantastic. Service is excellent. The people that work there are very attentive and helpful with a smile .Do not know the details about the bar but there was a great spread of food displayed. Not just crackers, cheese and veggies. Noticed on the board a full course meal at 4:30 for 30 something dollars. I would definitely do that ! If your originally from the east coast you will love it ! I felt like I was in Boston or CT. Made me happy to be there and a little homesick. The establishment has been there I think 30 or 40 yrs. So Charming, filled with history. There is nothing like this restaurant that I have seen in CA

The food was good but the delivery is Knott's Berry Farmlike or Disneylandlike with a mass production feel to it all and dishes are not cleared as guests finish. Plates are left sitting on the table forever - every course, creating the sensation this less than fine dining. A family across from us paid and left and we noticed how inappropriate and messy it looked with all six plates still on the table AFTER they left. I have never seen this happen anywhere else. Replace some of the old chairs. The English Trifle is no longer a gourmet dessert here as it began this way here years ago, served masterfully in a huge bowl. It is now mass produced and served instantly in a perfect square shape.

From Our Editors

Although Gulliver?s Restaurant?s name comes from the writing of Jonathan Swift, its menu draws inspiration from inns and pubs throughout the England countryside. Gayot praised the eatery?s commitment to hearty comfort food, claiming that ?the steaks are thick and juicy, and the Yorkshire pudding adds just the right authentic Olde English touch.? This British influence appears throughout the menu, from the fish ?n? chips to the sweet english trifle. Prime rib slow roasts inside a specially designed oven, and cuts of prime steak age in-house, leaving ample time for the chefs to forge a variety of new American cuisine, which demonstrates a similar commitment to satisfying, homestyle flavors. In addition to baby-back ribs and crab cakes with honey mustard, the menu also includes decadent options such as Maine lobster tails in molten gold.

Even the Zagat-rated eatery?s ambiance manages to evoke the feel of a roadside cottage. Lit by a row of electric chandeliers, the main dining room?s wood-paneled walls feature an astonishingly vast collection of framed pictures, mounted tankards, decorative plates, long-stemmed pipes, and prints by illustrators of Gulliver?s Travels. The lobby area?s fireplace contributes to this cozy ambiance, although patio seating is also available for alfresco dining.
