We ate at Gibraltor in Lancaster tonight. Tonight was a special dine out night in town were several restaurants donated 25% of each check to the local AIDS charity.
We arrived right after work and were seated without a reservation by 5:30. As we walked past the open service area all the servers lined up and greeted us. I was sort of taken aback and joked with them that it usually took a while for the whole staff to come throw me out. Service was attentive and professional, nobody telling me there name and how they would be taking care of me.
They had a limited menu in effect. I had a heirloom tomato and feta salad and a crab stuffed rainbow trout. salad was good the tomatoes were still good, not long left for this one I fear. Lots of feta and even more than I wanted. The trout was wonderful.It was perfectly cooked. The crab stuffing was standard stuff but sweet with some lump.
My wife had grilled swordfish which she loved. She had two glasses of the house pinot gorgio. i tasted it and it was a good match for her fish.
We each has a coffee and shared a berry napolean for desert. The puff pastry and pastry cream were great, but the strawberries proved this would have been better a month ago when local berries were still here. The place filled up and most of the crowd were there as part of the event. There were lots of lancaster movers and shakers including a County Commissioner but our service stayed good in spite of all the big timers.
Tab was 99.00 and well worth it. This is now on my list of lancaster recomendations.
