Funky urban cafe
This hip, gay-popular eatery serves delicious, reasonably-priced Mediterranean dishes and great $5 martinis. Try the Lamb Tenderloin, Almond Tilapia, or for some variety, the Zorba Sampler. The atmosphere is the real draw, with karaoke nights, bellydancers, and bar.

      Everything works well at Gilbert's
      This is a weekly place for me over the past 10 years and they do a great job. The prices are just right, the food is innovative, and the crowd is interesting.

      More a bar than a restaurant
      Gilbert's has become more a bar than a restaurant....used to be good, but it is next to Blake's, so gets overflow crowd

      Love it here!
      One of my top 3 local places to eat, drink and socialize. The food is great and affordable. My favorite entree is the pork tenderloin, and my favorite sandwich is the lemon chicken... Yumm! They also have the best mojitos in Atlanta (i dont care for the flavored ones, just the regular flavor is great!).

      Fun with no attitude!
      Gilberts is a great place to hang out and enjoy a martini or beer as you people watch from the center of the action in midtown. Open-air bar and restaurant. Food is pretty good too.

      Better atmosphere than food
      This is a cool place to hang out and have a few drinks at the bar. The food is not great by no means. Skip the food and just have a drink.
