On select days throughout the year, we prepare special menu items prepared by the chef of Fredericksburg’s former AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Augustine’s. In the spirit of the “pop-up” restaurant concept found in esteemed culinary cities such as New York, London, Chicago, San Francisco and Zurich, Gazebo offers affordable, fine dining selections in a casual, open air atmosphere when weather permits and in our elegant dining room at other times. Join our mailing list for a special invitation to future dining dates. We serve the freshest selections of meat, produce and specially prepared desserts including lamb shanks, gourmet meatloaf, fresh seafood, salads, fresh roasted chicken, lemoncello Italian sorbet, pina colada smoothies and much more.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GAZEBO
What is a “Pop-Up” Restaurant?
Pop-up restaurants have been popular since the 2000s in Britain and Australia and in recent years have become popular in major cities around the world and the U.S. Notable entrepreneurs, chefs, and restaurateurs have opened pop-up restaurants. They are technically temporary restaurants that open at random, sometimes in the same city or may even move from city to city. They “pop-up” in parking lots, vacant lots and outside well known eateries all over the world. After owning and operating Fredericksburg’s only former AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Augustine’s, we wanted to bring the enjoyment of fine gourmet dining in a casual, affordable atmosphere.
When are you open?
We announce lunch and/or dinner dates by email a few days ahead of time. We change our menu each day or evening we open to offer the best and freshest menu items, many of which come from local farms and markets. Because we don’t always know what will be available, we often can’t confirm the menu until the day before.
How will I know when you’re open for lunch or dinner?
Sign up for our e-newsletter list and you’ll be the first to know when we’re open and will be able to review a complete menu.
Can I make reservations?
Reservations are not necessary for lunch but we do encourage them when we host dinner since we have limited capacity and often fill our reservation slots in advance. Call us at 540-373-9601 and let us know how many are in your party.
Are jackets required or is casual attire acceptable?
Gazebo is always casual as our primary serving area is outdoors on our patio. You may be more comfortable dressing resort casual for evening dinners and events inside the mansion.
