We tried to eat here but it didn't work out, so this review has nothing to do with food. My wife and I ate here once before, some years ago. It was an experience. But that was years ago and we never went back until tonight. It has changed. Much less formal, but now dingy and in need of renovation.... More

One of our favorite restaurants. We've had beef carpaccio all over the world and Gerard's has the best. This seared tuna is amazing and they have great oysters. It would be hard to go wrong with anything on their menu.

We've eaten at Gerard's a number of times for Birthdays and Anniversaries, but I know others who visit regularly. Fairly fancy, with nicely dressed tables and wait staff... this is not a casual place... you don't have to dress up... but may feel a bit out of place if you're not in slacks or very nice jeans... I usually don't... More

We met another couple at Gerard's for dinner on a Friday night. We had never dined there before; our friends had been there, but at least 20 years ago. Gerard's is located near the back of a strip center, not a place you would notice unless you were looking for it. The restaurant has a spacious bar with dining set... More

We had a wonderful meal mid week at Gerard's. We were pleasantly greater by Gerard himself. Very upbeat and pleasant gentleman. We all had the escargot for apps. Delicious. Dinner included veal, pasta etc. all were wonderful. Caesar and chop salads very good. Bread for an Italian restaurant was just marginal. We will be back. Thanks Gerard.

Steaks and Veal are both wonderful. This is top notch. You would never expect the experience from looking at the outside of this place. It is truly a surprise.

We've been to Gerard's a number of times over the years and never been disappointed but they outdid themselves last night. We wanted to host dinner for a couple of long acquaintance who are soon moving to another city and I'm so glad we chose Gerard's. The restaurant needs a sign on the street as it's tucked back in a...

From the moment you enter you can sense that this will be a very special meal. The menu is quite diverse and there is literally something great for everyone. The wine list is also nicely balanced to satisfy all preferences. The owner, Gerard, personifies what an owner and top chef is all about. The pasta's are superb and the seafood... More

Funky decor, quiet ambiance. Food choices numerous and all very good. Try it! Big family welcomed. Don't forget to enjoy the fine wine selection.

Looking for seafood in West County is difficult but so much easier with a great place like Gerards.. Had a wonderful meal of appetizers, salad and entrées on a Saturday night.. Owner, Gerard, greeted us at the door and escorted us into the beautiful well appointed bar. We were worried as we werent dressed up, but we were graciously welcomed... More
