    Disappointing after all the hype. Service was excellent- but food was a huge blah. The NY Strip was tough..crabcakes were luke warm. The Broccoli was the best part of dinner. Nothing special- Onion straws were soggy, greasy onion rings..I would be hard pressed to recommend or go back. Pretty interior design- bar is attractive.There is far too much competition and better restaurants in the area..Seems like expensive account crowd was there in full force- they might be the only ones who want to spend $50, a head before their main meal.

    I've been to Gabrielle's about half a dozen times since they opened a couple of years ago, and I think the food has steadily improved. My porterhouse steak for two was cooked to perfection and on par with other top steak houses - such as Frankie and Johnny's in Rye. Almost as good as Peter Lugars too... Make sure you bring your checkbook - dinner for two will run you about $250-300!

    Great food, steaks, seafood, italian. And drinks and wine are tough to beat. Had a great Manhattan and just had to have another. And Tony the maitre 'd is just icing on the cake. Makes you feel right at home and a regular, even if you're not. (But I frequent this place as often as practical). Pricey but the food, service and bar are all worth the trip.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 8/7/2014
    The waiter was in a rush to go home. He made it explicitly clear that they were closing and that the last two tables, mine included, were expected to vacate the premises by the time of the last seating. He wasn't subtle. He was direct and this was obnoxious. Had planned to order another after dinner drink but obviously nobody with an interest in the restaurant's profitability was present. Too bad because the food was excellent. I would have recommended the restaurant to many people but now I will most likely avoid it.

    I didn't realize how fancy the restaurant was when I booked online and then showed up with my 2.5 and 5.5 year olds but the maître D and all the staff was very warm and welcoming. It is very comfortable and food was great. One of the best filets I've had and I'm from NYC and have been to most steakhouses.

    Dinner was terrific ... My husband had a fabulous T-bone steak and ordered the french fries which were amazing. I had pappardelle bolognese which was terrific. The waiter was delightful --- attentive without being intrusive. Drinks large & excellent. Flowers simple but okay. They brought raspberry sorbet (on the house) with a candle for my husbands birthday -- a nice touch to a wonderful evening. I recommend going on a week-night. We were there on a Monday night & it was quiet and peaceful which was great. My one complaint: The music was terrible -- endless thumping beat. Annoying -- they could play anything at all and it would be better.

    We had to make a last minute reservation change. They were very gracious. We felt a bit rushed at the end but honestly they told us when we changed the reservation that we could have the table for a certain amount of time. So it was to be expected. The waiter did not seem very informed about menu items a little surprising since the service was very attentive. Very nice place homemade pasta was great.

    We were six senior golfers staying in the area for a tournament. The choice of a restaurant was mine so I picked Gabriele's by recommendation from my Brother-in-law who lives in the area. I was a hero. I don't think we have had a better steak anywhere, and we are from Chicago. Tony, the Maître was over the top seeing we were well taken are of. Monday night it was packed with all manor of locals including families. Hard to find but worth it.

    Unable to deliver on reservation time. Rushed order, following a seating that was 45 after the reservation time. Wait staff that was completely overwhelmed and frazzled. Food with inconsistent portion sizes. Ran out of key entrees. Offered complimentary dessert (of their choice) which masked the true intent which was to get us out of the restaurant in a timely fashion. Began breaking down the dining hall as we were the last table left - due to the 45 minute seating delay.

    Four letter word for the best host in Greenwich? Hint: While waiting for your reservation date to arrive, spend time brushing up on your trivia because along with juicy, generously portioned steaks TONY, the restaurant's host, will undoubtedly stop by and ask you a trivia question (or two). Although their claim to fame is their meats, don't overlook the Chilean sea bass. It is served with asparagus and just enough lobster meat to provide a wonderful variety of flavors without overwhelming the dish. The next time you're looking for a great seafood dinner, Gabriel's Italian Steakhouse is the place to go.

    When looking for that memorable place for a fun celebration, look no further! Food is excellent, service is on the ball and we were lucky enough to be placed (without requesting specifically) at a 6-person table in the wine room, just off the main floor, affording us the ability to have an all-inclusive table conversation. The main room here creates the bustle of the fun environment, but if you are seated within that area (other than in one of their cozy booths), it can be deafening loud. We were celebrating a milestone event and this was just the ticket. Thanks very much and we look forward to our next visit.

    Gabriele's ranks with the best of the best. The food is consistently good. I had a seafood ravioli special as an appetizer..the pasta melted in your mouth, the insides were delicious and the sauce out of this world. The entree was a steak, of course and it was as good if not better than any of the steakhouses. The place is quite noisy and you pay a stiff price for all the elegance and deliciousness, but who cares.. You are buying a first rate product and their is a price to pay. BTW, don't pass up the french fries with truffle oil.

    Went on a Sunday night, and it was more like group family-night than nice expensive restaurant. Lots of young children and people in flannel checked shirts, etc. Food was excellent -- as always -- and the greeter at the door was the best, but the waitress, although professional, had no warmth or personality.
