No napkins. No teaspoons. Menus left on table. Too much rush, no attention to quality. No fault to the kitchen, food was good.

Poor seating choice. We were out right next to two people who were taking extremely loud even though there were plenty of seating elsewhere in the restaurant. Service was sub par and the food was just okay

Always a good meal at Gaby's with top rate service. Excellent spot to meet friends where you can actually talk to them. Good value prix fix options for pre-theater. Excellent choice for a business/interview lunch. A little quiet for dinner but still just as good as lunch if you don't mind not having a large crowd.

Really nice place to eat in the Sofitel hotel - chic décor, excellent dinner menu, and quiet. Food choices were varied, well presented and delicious. My only disappointment was the extremely high mark up on the wines.

The restaurant is a very attractive facility in the Sofitel with an attentive wait staff and a well set table.
The appetizer was BABY BURRATA Grilled asparagus pancetta hazelnut salsa which was different but interesting. The main course was DUCK BREAST Miso almond butter, baby bok choy and king oyster mushroom which I ordered rare. The duck was very good and the mushroom sauce was excellent.

My daughter and I took advantage of Winter Restaurant Week. We had the 2 course lunch and opted for the $3 supplement for dessert. The service was attentive but not intrusive. An appetizer of quiche & salad was delicious. Entrees of scallops and duck did not disappoint. The desserts were delicious- crepe brûlée cheesecake and a blueberry conflout. This menu was only for Restaurant Week but in my opinion should be offered on their regular menu.
My only criticism is not the restaurant but with Restaurant Week in general. In past years, the lunches were 3 courses. This year 2019, they were 2 courses and extra for dessert. Maybe they should rethink that for the next Restaurant Week.

The server was rushing us by taking plates no sooner than we took the last bite and setting new knives & folks while we were still workin on the previous course. We ordered “brioche croque madam” but they substituted brioche with plain bread without any notice claiming the bread was almost same as brioche. When we insisted that the bread wasn’t even close to brioche, the manager came to explain how perfectly normal for French restaurants in France to rush serving. Not a word of apologies came out. The dessert’s pastry puffs were stale and the whole experience was just so terrible.

The food was really good, we've had quiche, baby burrata, steak and benedict eggs. Nothing to complained about the food.
The service though, was just awful. The waiter asked if everything is good and immediately turned his back to us without even waiting a second for the response. Was he expecting me to talk to his buttocks?
Paying was also fun, they've swiped my card and brought back the slip to sign. I've signed it and placed it on the table. Few moments later he comes back and asks "Is it done?". Definitely, the least polite service in a long time.

Gaby provided a surprisingly delicious restaurant week lunch. I love the decor in the Sofitel Hotel. It has an an echo or art deco.
The major problem is the inconvenient location of the restroom, about 3 floors below the restaurant. I’m certain I will return again soon..

We went for restaurant week after watching a Broadway show. We sat at 10 pm. We had a great experience - service was in point and food was delicious (we had duck & ribeye entrees). The value was good since it was restaurant week - $42 for three courses! We will definitely return for special date nights.

Restaurant Week luncheon was a great value. Scallops were perfectly done; appetizer (crab quiche) was excellent as were the desserts. Portions were typically small Restaurant Week portions but mean was satisfying. Service was very attentive and polished. Will definitely go back.

The restaurant was nice, as well as the service. I went to try the restaurant week menu, and they even allowed me to make some changes on the preset menu. The did was acceptable (not the best nor the worst). They automatically charge you a 20% gratuity fee if you try that menu

We popped in here after the theatre nearby. The staff was very friendly. While this is the Sofitel restaurant, it had its own entrance. It is a bit more informal than we had expected. But the food was good. Their take on a tuna Nicoise salad was different and very good.

I had made reservations at this establishment after researching restaurants in the area for after our show at the Lyceum. They had great reviews and a nicely done menu. We came as a holiday celebration and to also celebrate my brother and his wife’s birthdays. Everyone was very kind at the reception, the ambience was beautiful. The cocktails and wine were delicious. The service was impeccable. All of the courses were brought out at a timely manner and every dish was done perfectly! I would highly recommend and would look forward to coming again!
