ABOUT US

Since its' inception in 1979 - Gates has been a favorite New Canaan restaurant where great food and friendly service culminate in a fun dining experience.

Whether it’s a working lunch, date night, birthday celebration or an I-don’t-want-to-cook-night - Gates has you covered. In addition we love to throw a party so ask about our packages.

Relaxed and casually elegant. Nightly specials, Happy Hour, Wednesday Trivia and Live music Saturdays. This is Gates.
