We are so happy we went with Gateway! The prices were great for the quality of food. Everything we had was insanely delicious. They helped us determine how much of each item to order, and gave great suggestions for wine. All the servers were fantastic, and everyone was really helpful during consultations and email communications.

One of the best examples of how great Gateway is came from right before our ceremony. A server overheard me make a comment about how hungry I was while my husband and I were hiding in the back of the venue waiting for the ceremony to start, and she brought me a plate with fruit and cheese.
