    Everything was GREAT but I found it VERY expensive. The side dishes drove the price high. When I spend $45 on a steak I think it should have some company on the plate. The steak was outstanding...but I hated paying for the tasty side dish.

    This was our third time at Gabriele's and, once more, we had a great experience. Food was great, with emphasis to the specials (which included a carbonara pasta with sliced truffles) and the steak, certainly one of the best in the region. But the best of all was the service from the server called Deimar, who was very courteous, proactive and efficient. The wine list is also very good, but a little pricy. Will certainly go back there soon.

    But the food just never comes out right... My NY strip, ordered medium rare, came out medium. This is pretty normal here. Not sure why I don't just order it rare... Also, it was presliced, which is normal for porterhouse, but not my favorite for a NY strip. The sides are okay, but everything seems not quite fresh, possibly heated and not cooked right then, and very oily. My wedge salad was excellent, the wine list is great, and they really do a nice job in the front of the house. My kids love it there, so we'll go back, despite the rather intense pricing. But I love a good steak and can't get over the hump to liking or recommending Gabrielle's...

    Our most recent visit was a disappointment. We ordered a substitution of whole wheat pasta and they brought gluten free instead. Our server had plenty of excuses, but no apology. For $26, we expect a restaurant of this caliber to get our pasta dish right. Our first experience was great, so we will give Gabriele's one more try.

    this was our third time visiting, the food was so disappointing. My husbands swordfish was dry and overcooked, I requested that all of my food be salt-free and all of my food was salted (the waiter clearly did not communicate with the kitchen), I ordered lamb chops thinking that they would be safe and they were served in a pool of sauce. One of our dining companions ordered a pasta special that was sadly disappointing and another diner ordered bone-in rib-eye a very expensive dish in this restaurant(it is pricy overall) and it too was disappointing, it was not the same size that it normally is. They serve complimentary biscoti after dinner which they never brought to us? we will not go back.

    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.

    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.
