One star may be to many! – I always try to look at the positive but I had to look long and hard find any thing positive about my ?dinning? experience at the Gables. Although I was seated quickly it was because I one of the only people in the restaurant. The service was slow and we didn?t see the same server twice. They were out of most of what we asked for including limes for our drinks. The food when it did finally come was not worth the wait. The crab cakes were mostly breading and the crab smelled like it had gone bad. The Mahi was flavorless and sitting by its self on this big plate very unappetizing. The house salad cost extra even though it stated that the entrees came with salad veggie and starch all I got was one small piece of fish. There wasn?t much variety or creativity to the menu. The decor and atmosphere were lacking and the outside seating was wet, even thought they were still sting people there. This restaurant has potential but needs lots of help.
Worst Service and Customer Service I have seen – The food was good but expensive. The service is the absolute worst in the Mt. Dora area. After waiting over an hour for a lunch "special" to arrive I spoke nicely to the manager (about the problem) who was only mildly appologetic and did not even offer to take care of part of the bill or to discount it. The table next to me had the same poor service and will also not return. I guess they get away with it since the majority of their business is non-return tourist business. I live here and will never go back!
