I love this restaurant. They really have everything down. The food is usually excellent, the service is impeccable and they have safety measures and social distancing of all the tables down perfectly. The burgers here are unbelievable as it is the pizza and the fish tacos. Last night I got the tuna poke bowl and to be honest I didn’t feel as though it was the best. Typically you have the sesame oil and soy sauce as the flavor but this one did not come with that instead they gave you chili sauce on the side but otherwise I felt that it needed some additional flavor. Other than that, everything is great!!

My first time at Gusto Grill was a great one! I had the BEST steak sandwich ever. Crusty bread and bourbon marinated think slices of flank steak. Amazing. I just wish the portion was bigger. That with a glass of Reisling. Yum.

I will definitely be back.

Waitress service was very very good.

The fried goat cheese was delicious, the bbq chicken flat bread was great , just ask for the sauce on the side , so you can control the amount .
The pork belly was very good .
The waiter was a delight . He did not rush us at all even though it was closing time
The aperol drink in the can was so good
The sound system is the best. The owners spend a lot of money on it . The only thing I would change , especially, near closing time , is some Latin music : ie , salsa , bachata , ballads.
I will definitely be back

Due to Covid we made certain to make a reservation a week in advance and we are glad we did . the safety precautions taken were very good such as online menu only and more than adequate spacing in the seating area.
We started with a beer and glass of wine both of which were very good and they have a nice selection of tap beers as well as tasty wines. My wife had the crab cake sandwich which was very good - plenty of crabmeat and a very tasty sauce. I had the Gusto burger which was cooked to perfection- charred on the outside and juicy in the middle. This was our first time here but it will be added to our dining repertoire for sure. We had no room for dessert as the sandwiches were large and we added fries to our orders.

If you are in the area it's worth it if you are looking for something near by with ambiance.. but it didn't make a lasting impression. Won't be going back.
Try the calamari that was good...
