    Dined on 1/5/2013
    What a horrible experience! We arrived before 6 PM ordering an appetizer and main course (no drinks). The appetizer came about 30 minutes later and by 7:15 PM after not seeing our waiter since we ordered, I reported to the hostess that we had a show to catch and needed our food immediately. She found our waiter who rather than apologizing, informed us that our dinner would be in a few more minutes. He asked if we wanted to cancel the main course! Since this was a birthday celebration dinner for my date, and I had put a special note on Open Table when I made the reservation, I was shocked. The main course came at 7:25 PM and was an overdone, dry piece of salmon which I left over.

    We had the Christmas Day special dinner. Food was OK, but not at the standard you would expect at a high-end hotel restaurant. In addition, the cost was very high - we ate a full degustation menu (paired with wine) the next day at Rouge Tomate (one Michelin star) for the same total cost (and the experience was much better).

    As visitors to New York we were delighted to find Gaby Restaurant and could not have made a better choice for our family Christmas Day lunch. The food was superb, the service outstanding and the atmosphere perfect. Even though it was a fixed menu, the staff did not hesitate to assist in arranging an alternate choice when advised two of our party did not eat oysters, one of the courses being served, the sign of an excellent restaurant clearly focused on customer service and happy dining experience for all! Best of all we were not rushed through our dining experience and able to savour every aspect of the meal. Many thanks!

    The meal was very nice and we enjoyed the 30-minute lunch. Regrettably, the service was very slow . It took over an hour to have our meal to the table and the waiter was dodging us every time we tried to attract his attention. Too bad because I had better prior experience there.

  • Disappointing Thanksgiving offering
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/22/2012
    We went on Thanksgiving and were disappointed that there were only two choices for appetizer and entree. Regular menu was not available even though I had been told that it would be when I phoned prior to making our reservation. Thanksgiving menu was mentioned on the web site but without details. Food was good but I would have preferred a single dessert rather than a family plate of very small items. No snacks (olives, nuts, etc.) served with our drinks although I saw them on a table of other people who came in later to have drinks. That table also seemed to have other hot items (calamari?) for which no menu was presented to us.

    Gaby's was a great choice for dinner close to New York's theater district. The food was excellent as was the service. The prices were very reasonable for a Manhattan French restaurant. The decor was just right for a romantic dinner. There was no stuffy dress code. All in all Gaby's turned out to be an excellent choice. We intend to return the next time we're in the city.

    Gaby's was a nice place to go for lunch because it was not super crowded so we got our food quickly. Unfortunately, the waiter wasn't entirely helpful in choosing a dish for lunch, which I sometimes rely on their input. The red fish was a little too fishy, but I don't know if that is just a result of the type of fish. Overall the service was fine and we got in and out quickly, which was most important.

    Lovely restaurant! Service is impeccable! Greeted the moment we walked in and shown to a window table. We were enroute to the theater this evening and the Maitre'd asked us as we were seated as did our waiter. The cocktails were excellent the bartender knew how to mix a drink! We order the 3 course Prixe Fixe after the waiter assured us we would have time to enjoy it. He also helped with our ordering decisions and the selections were perfect. Would definately recommend and visit again!

    The Gaby has everything going for it: Excellent food matched by excellent service in a charming, relaxing environment and great location (walking distance to Times Square and 5th Avenue shops.) The hostess was friendly and had a delightful, personable manner about her. The server was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. His assistant was diligent and precise and also very friendly. The filet mignon, sides, and crab cake were outstanding. A wonderful dining experience.

    Food was edible but uninspired; salad part of seared tuna salad was very good but seared tuna was overdone and crust lacked promised wasabi flavor. The busboys were very helpful but our waiter seemed intent on recapitulating old jokes about diffident French waiters. He couldn't even be bothered to give us a bill after our meal until we sent a busboy after him. It wasn't because of overwork, either-- we ate late and the restaurant was only 20% full. Decor was rather hard-edged and I think the noise levelwould have been high if theplace were more crowded.

    I had The Atlantic 30 minute lunch, which for $30 included a delicious lobster bisque that was not overly creamy and perfect, smoked salmon, a crab cake, and desert which the chef was kind enough to substitute, creme brulee with blueberries and raspberries. It took a while for the food to be served, but when it came out, it was served on a large separated plate with all four items. I'd certainly go back to Gaby.

    Overall I give this restaurant a 3/5. I had made a last minute reservation to dine with my brother and mother. We were very excited to order when we read that the owner was the winner of Food Network's Chopped but were left a little less than satisfied when we took a bite of the salmon. We found it to be dry and lacking flavor. The fish and chips were delicious; the fries were pretty interesting and tasteful for that sort of restaurant. I have to make a comment about our waiter whose service was fine only he came back to our table everytime smelling like cigarette smoke. Other than that the ambiance was great. Very cute restaurant. Maybe they should focus a little more on the quality of the food and less about the presentation of it.
