The food was amazing, the atmosphere was awesome, and the service was stellar. Larry was our server and he really went above and beyond. He was spot on with the food recommendation and very attentive. The garlic and goat is so good !

I love the top. Their drinks are good (and very strong!) and their food is usually pretty good and they try and source some of their food locally (yay!). 4 stars because the service is inconsistent and so is the food. Sometimes I go and...More

Always fresh and local, the menu is loaded with specials. Good cocktails, and excellent service make The Top a "Top" restaurant in Gainesville. Come early on the weekend as the place fills up.

I don't think they take reservations, however they do use a text message system to tell you when your table is ready. We had an hour wait but walked to a nearby bar to have drinks first and it worked out great!
