We just wanted to write you to give our biggest thanks for your awesome support of our wedding. You were attentive and supportive from the beginning and were a large part of making our day magical. Everyone said how amazing the food was and many said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Your staff was available and everything went great. We will send you some pictures of the tables with the food when we get them from our photographer. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you and we look forward to future dinners (or other events) with Cafe Gibraltar.
-Warmly, Sarah and Julie
Dear Liam & Jose,
I and my entire family want to thank you both very, very much for the excellent food, wonderful service and the outstanding overall support you have provided us for event!

Just echoing Susan's thanks for helping make the day go so smoothly. I would have loved to have eaten a second (or third) plate of everything but didn't have time! Your staff were warm, efficient and subtly present everywhere they were needed. The food was a huge hit with our "meat-a-tarian" and vegetarian guests and Scott was great at the bar. If you ever need an endorsement, don't hesitate to ask us.

Thank you for a spectacular evening last Thursday. Our group had a wonderful time. They raved about the food and loved the small plates so they were able to enjoy so many delicious courses. It was a perfect evening and I appreciate all the hard work by Jose Luis, you and your staff to make it so.
Warm regards, Sandy
Good Morning, Liam and Chef Jose Luis!
What can we say? The office is a "buzz" this morning about last night's holiday party..it could NOT have been more wonderful. Made so by the two of you and a wonderful staff of Ladies & Gentlemen! The food was scrumptious, the service "out of sight" and the surroundings joyful. The table set-up was perfect...everyone is saying that it felt like a "family" dinner. Thank you, again, for opening your wonderful restaurant to us on your day off. We wish you all of the best during this holiday season and a very prosperous New Year!

Please THANK José Luis and the staff for a MOST memorable dinner...We brought our friends to celebrate their 40th Anniversary. The food and service were "Impeccable." They LOVED the decor! We wanted for nothing! it was seamless and we all enjoyed it to the MAX! The look on our friends face when he tasted his entree is indelible on my mind. He looked to the heavens with the most gentle delightful smile. To say they enjoyed the food would be an understatement. He has a newsletter that he sends out to friends internationally and intends to let EVERYONE in on the "VERY BEST SECRET" in the San Francisco Bay area. I asked him to add us to the list and we will send you a copy when it comes out.
