Our daughter recommended this place and it exceeded our expectations. We had the fix menu for lunch and bot of us really appreciated the salmon as the main course. My wife enjoyed her salad and I would rate the French Onion soup as one of the best I have ever had.
It does represent outstanding value and I recommend it highly.
We had reservations at Butter a few doors down but the kitchen was closing at 8 on a sunday and they were rushing us to order. We decided to eat elsewhere and stumbled on Gaby a few doors down. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our every need. They had the chef make changes to a few of the dishes based on our dietary restrictions. Service was provided with a smile. Food was fantastic.
A little disappointed with Sofitel’s restaurants (and hotels) I used to love brunch at Sofitel’s Chicago as everything was outstanding (true french patisseries, upscale feel). Here everything is OK, but Definitely on a lower level
How does this otherwise decent restaurant offer a 3-course pre-theater meal for $38? By charging $24 for a single Tito's martini that has not even been prepared to order - I ordered an extra dry martini and it was mostly vermouth. When I questioned the waiter on the price of the martini at our meal's end when the check arrived, noting that a bottle of Tito's in Manhattan only costs between $22 and $28, he simply shrugged his shoulders and said "the manager sets the prices." A $24 martini is expected at Del Frisco's or any Top 50 Zagat restaurants, but on 44th Street at a Grade B hotel restaurant? Food and food options were not bad, but I would give it a pass on the "attitudes." Also, $7 for a cup of regular coffee served in a diner style white ceramic mug? Pass.
Food was good, service great. Everyone was super nice
Clean with solid service, but nothing was done well and everything was incredibly overpriced. Over $20 for a fruit plate with fruits that had been partially frozen and throrougly abused; my compatriots’ meals looked similarly ill prepared.
We used a Travel Zoo voucher and went there for brunch. It was delicious! They gave huge portions and in retrospect, my husband and I totally could have shared one, but it was really a good value. I'd go again.
Fantastic experience. From the beginning to the end it was wonderful.
Purchased a Travel Zoo Voucher & was treated like gold!!
Food was great, drinks were awesome..
WE are already planning another trip back soon..
Great French cuisine in a comfortable environment in mid-town. Excellent service!
Overpriced for what it is. Scallops over cooked . Underwhelming experience.
as always great amazing food and the service was superb. definitely coming back :)
Good French food.
We went there after theater and had a great lunch. Very pretty room and the service and food were all excellent. We wIll return.
The food was fantastic and the portions was just perfect!
There's no earthly reason to dine here unless it's uber convenient. The waiter was consistently nowhere to be seen. Both our salads-greens and supposed heirloom tomatoes (1/2 a red, 1/2 a green, both NOT ripe) were bland. Desserts were also bland.
The main dish duck in Miso was admittedly tasty.
The place has zero character.
Restaurant Gaby is my preferred business lunch establishment. The food and service are excellent and the quiet ambiance allow for productive business conversation.
It is a quiet restaurant with good food and wine selections. The staff was warm and friendly. Also convenient to meet up with friends after work.
21st bday...service was good. Fish great. Duck dry. Ambience nice
Nice food and nice surroundings but the price level doesn’t really reflect what you get on the plate. Not that it was bad but there are places with better value for money. We had a fixed menu though so maybe the dishes from the regular menu are made with some more love.
First of all -- beware Gaby Brasserie INCLUDES the gratuity in the bill. I wasn't impressed with the food. The salad was quite good, but went downhill after that. This restaurant included dessert with their Restaurant Week menu, but the peach creme brulee was awful. Because this restaurant is in a hotel, the rest rooms are very difficult to locate. I felt like a lab mouse going through mazes to reach my destination. Not good for wheelchair bound folks (steps are involved).
On a positive note, our server was fantastic. I gave him cash as a tip (even tho he turned me down -- I insisted he take it) because he was that good!
This was the worse experience we had in the long time.We came in a restaurant for brunch jewelry the restaurant week. This was Sunday brunch. We have been to this restaurant before and their brunch menu was completely different.The food was horrible this time around, selection was very poor, for spinach salad they did not use spinach leaves. Their usual brunch costs $26, and the selection great, and unlimited mimosas are included. During the restaurant week they charged $26, Mimosa’s were additional $20.00 per person. For $296.00 we had grits with poached eggs, salmon spinach salad with no spinach and cream brûlée desert. The restaurant was empty!!!. I did not wanted to ruin my daughter birthday on other occasion I would have just left.
I will never go to this place again due to their deceptive menu switching practices.
NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR THE RESTAURANT WEEK!!!
Went for restaraunt week. Brunch was good and the staff members were friendly. Food was good, but not great. Overall, very nice ambiance and nice place for conversations with friends.
Wonderful attentive service . Menu had options for all.
Chicken with mushrooms choice had too much sauce. Made simple choice too heavy. Lighter or on the side would have been preferred. The description on the menu lead me to believe it was light. Hubby’s restaurant week menu choice was lively. Will definitely return while attending theatre.
Come for the fantastic service and the fancy atmosphere, but not for the food. The food was good, but not stand-out. Some of the items on the Restaurant Week menu were simply not complex enough to be presentable as dishes, nor were they tasty enough to be served at a restaurant that claims to be of this caliber. They were certainly not worth the price. In particular, the tomato "salad" was just a quartered tomato (supposedly heirloom, though I doubt it) with blue cheese and walnuts sprinkled on top, and the pasta dish I ordered could have been served on a kids' menu. Gaby is definitely a fancy place, and for those who are happy with food that is alright, rather than great, it works. But I was left feeling disappointed.
The food was delicious and the service was fabulous. Our waiter David was outstanding!!! Can't wait to come back!!!
Food portion is generous, and it tastes great. Definitely a recommendation if you’re looking for a good dinner.
great food and great service. plenty of room at the table and quiet.
The service was great once it got going: rather than being welcoming the hostess was petulant when we showed for our reservation and it took a while for our server to show but once he did, the service was friendly and warm. We came during restaurant week so we got great value (3 courses for $26) other wise this is a bit pricey, although expected for a hotel restaurant in NYC. Food was good, standard French cuisine.
We had dinner before seeing a Broadway show and both the pre fixed Dinner and the regular Menu were wonderful. I had Colorado Lamb Chops, which were cooked perfectly (medium rare) and my friend had the Prefixed menu wild salmon which she said was great. The three sorbet desert was unusual in that it had apricot, raspberry and pear which was the first time I had pear sorbet and it was the beat of the three,
Had after theater dinner at 5:30 on a Wednesday night. Our waiter was fantastic and friendly and had a great sense of humor.
This was a really nice place, the service was outstanding and the location very convenient to the theater district. I got the duck breast which was excellent and my wife got the vegetable lasagna, which wasn’t quite as good. We would definitely recommend and go again.
Jose and Meti were fantastic. Excellent service and treated my friend and me as if we were royalty
Service was very attentive. I had the sea bass and it was overcooked and bland. Husband had scallops and felt the dish was under seasoned. But a pleasant pre-theater dinner
This is our go to place in midtown. The food is reliably good and the service is excellent. We are Francophile so the ambiance suits us. We typically go for brunch or lunch before attending matinee performances. They seem to have eliminated the brunch option on Saturdays so we had breakfast. It worked.
Like most restaurants, too cool, but the food and everything else was great!
Excellent food and service! My daughter and I love the brunch menu.
The appetizers and main courses were very good. The creme brulee however was horrible.
In addition, getting to the restrooms required lots of stairs which was a great discomfort to my husband who is a senior citizen. We will not eat there again.
Everything was great , food was excellent and came out in a Timely manner. It was a birthday so they brought a nice dessert plate with a candle.
The Prix-Fix Theater Menu was a good value. Food was well prepared. The burrata salad appetizer was delicious. Service was outstanding. Our waiter, Metti, was most attentive.
Birthday! Fabulous Fantastic 5/5 Stars all around 😀
