My husband and I absolutely love Gourmet Garage and have come several times and often meet family and friends here. We always have the same steaks and so does family. My brother in... More

Definitely a no frills sort of place, offering decent food, served quickly and for very little cost. Would not recommend for dinner as I don't think the standard is quite high enough.

The food was good although not particularly well presented. The service however was exceptional...the waiter was fast and friendly and the food seemed to appear almost immediately. The ambience was loud and busy being a Friday night. I would return.

The food was great overall and the staff friendly. The only issue I had was that the wash rooms were out of order which I found strange. I would expect a restaurant to remain closed if the washrooms don't work. Almost spoilt what was otherwise a great night out.

We had a large group of friends with kids, feedback on the burgers was great. I had the garage burger which was excellent. Service was very attentive too and the decor made for fun photos.

It used to be such a treat to eat there? The food wasn't horrible, but not as over-the-top and bold as it used to be. The snitchel-burger was slightly dry and definitely smaller than it used to be. Drinks overpriced!
