    Fantastic service and delicious food

    My son and his wife wanted to get married on the beach. They also looked up this restaurant online and said that's where they wanted their reception. Neither one of them had ever eaten there and I did not know anyone that has eaten there so my first response is I don't think that's a good idea. So I read a lot of reviews that gave them 5 stars. I contacted them to check pricing and reception info. From the first phone call they were amazing. I only had 4 months to plan the wedding and reception and they were great about working with me on a short notice. I wanted to taste the food before the reception so me and the bride went for dinner and to finalize everything a month before. I could not believe the quality of the food. Everything was so fresh and delicious. You would have thought we were Queens with the royal treatment we received. Now it's receiption time and I'm trying to be wedding coordinator, decorator and Mom. By the way not a good idea. I was crazy by the time the wedding was to start. I took my reception supplies to them and gave a quick run down on how I wanted it to look. They listen and decorated the room above and beyond my expectations. It was stunning. There was so much delicious food. I coordinate and decorate weddings for people. I have worked at different venues and I have never ever had the service I did at Cafe Gabbiano's. Their staff is PHENOMENAL!!! I highly recommend this restaurant for receptions or just a nice dinner out. There are not enough words to describe how pleased I am with Cafe Gabbiano's.

    out of town wedding

    Cafe Gabbiano was so easy to work with in planning our out of town wedding. Communicating with Marc was easy and he was very responsive and accommodating at all times. We had a food and wine tasting after we picked out what we wanted to serve. We had a smaller wedding (70 people) and the reception was held in the backyard of a house we rented. We had a cocktail style reception and the staff at Cafe Gabbiano did an amazing job with this style. Not to mention the food was incredible... our guests are still talking about it. Our guests have said they have never had such good food at a wedding before (kudos to the chef!). All of the waiters and waitresses were so kind and pleasant, they even left us a card, a bottle of Prosecco, and used all the leftover wine to make sangria that we could enjoy the next few days at our rental. They have amazing customer service. My husband and I will definitely eat dinner at Cafe Gabbiano on our future trips to Sarasota!
