Something for Everyone —

Enjoy casual or fine dining in one of our three restaurants.

The Colonnade

Formal and elegant, The Colonnade is the place to go when you’re in the mood to “dress for dinner.” Draped windows, chandeliered ceilings and stately crown molding create a refined ambiance. The Colonnade’s attentive, knowledgeable staff pairs lavish food with the perfect wine or drinks.

Palm Court Restaurant and Lounge

Bright, casual and open from early morning to evening, Palm Court is the perfect choice for a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner. The comfortable atmosphere features cheerful music and lighting in a garden setting. Enjoy a home-cooked meal freshly prepared from our kitchen along with daily specials, premium liquors and fine wines.


The Bistro features a delicious array of freshly prepared selections, including Tuscan-inspired fare with homemade flatbread pizzas, fresh pasta entrees, choice cuts of meat, crispy salads, fresh fruits and vegetables and wonderful desserts that round out the menu.

“What I love about working at The Gatesworth is I see the same people day in and day out, and I really get to build relationships with them. I know what Residents like, what they don’t like, and what their dietary needs are. That means that I get use my imagination in coming up with dishes they’ll enjoy.”
