We had Sunday brunch at Gaby’s and were blown away by their prix fixe menu of delicious options. 3 courses plus coffee for $26. We could have ordered just one for both people as the portions were so large. The ambiance was very French; the service prompt and friendly. We will go back to try dinner next time.

Nice quiet place for a business breakfast. And located in mid-town between 5th and 6th. A bit hard to find.

This is one of our favorite breakfast spot in New York City! We have enjoyed many breakfasts— their blueberry pancakes are our favorite dish!! The servers are all amazing, personable and they care about you enjoying the experience of dining at Gaby’s. The French press coffee is wonderful too! A real treat and a great find in a city with a lot of options- this restaurant still remains at the very top of our list! Bon Appetit!!!

Inattentive waiter. Other patrons were offered tools from a basket; we were not. After three spoonfuls my wife gave up on the pancakes. Toast was warm but not toasted. Scrambled eggs were not good. No wonder the place was so sparsely populated.

We enjoyed a quaint dinner with a French flair. The menu was very French cuisine, the service was perfect, and the food not only quite good but very affordable for NYC. Much like a neighborhood boutique hotel, plenty of décor, and enjoyable.

We were here for dinner before a concert we were seeing later that evening. The food was absolutely amazing. There was not one thing I did not enjoy the taste of. The drinks were ok. I know it’s NYC, but $45 for 2 Martinis is a bit much. The only thing I would recommend is that the staff should not assume that everyone speaks Spanish. We were invited to to be seated in Spanish by the lady at the front desk although we are not Spanish and had not spoken Spanish at any point. While I appreciate different languages and cultures and speak 4 languages myself, I never assume someone speaks one language or another. I will be returning for another occasion because the atmosphere, food, and the rest of the staff were amazing. Thank you.

Good value for pre-theater dinner. Quality of the food was excellent. Service could have been better. We ordered from the abbreviated pre theater menu with four items and they brought me the wrong entree. We ordered one steak and one duck and they brought 2 steaks. I don’t know how you can get that wrong. I don’t like steak so they took it away and I waited 15 minutes for my duck and watched my husband eat. He was finished by the time they brought mine. The duck was good, but to add insult to injury, the bill came with a full price charge for the duck entree on top of the Fixed price for the two dinners! They removed it when we complained, but it shouldn’t have happened.

Having enjoyed several visits in the past were quite surprised at the total failure of this visit. The service poor at best and not a surprise as they simply just add 20% service to the bill. Having had to multiple times make requests and then go extended periods looking for service just add insult to injury. Culminating with a complete lack of care when expressing concerns when leaving.

Where historically would recommend now recommend going elsewhere. Not worth the money you will pay.

Attending the theatre and taking my friend to lunch for her birthday. French restaurants are her favorite, and we wanted to try something new to us, in the theatre district.
Overall the food was good, but the service was terrible. It seemed as if the waiter had an appointment at 12:00 in the afternoon and couldn't wait to get it over with. He asked if we knew what we wanted to order, I then asked him for the wine list. There are some nice wine choices, even though they were expensive (example: Miraval rose was $24 a glass, which is the price of a bottle that I can buy). We asked to try the Sancerre, and then decided we would order a carafe of the Pouilly Fuisse. The waiter came back with the carafe and started to pour the wine in the tasting glasses, I indicated he needed to get us new glasses since we just tried the other wine in the glasses on the table. After getting the wine glasses. He then took our food order. I ordered a burger, which came with French Fries, and I asked for the truffle fries. We had a salad, a burger and great wine. Once the table was cleared, he put the check on the table, without asking if we wanted anything else. I said we wanted tea, and then he brought us an updated check.
Well now its time to review the check. I was charged $12 for the truffle fries (so almost $40 for burger and fries). He never indicated they would be separate, or if there was an up charge even though the burger came with French Fries. He said it was up to the chef (really). We were then over charged for the wine that we tasted and not the wine that we ordered. At this point, my friend was upset and she felt we should not tip the waiter (which is not what we did). I was disappointed that it was suppose to be a nice celebration and we were both aggravated by the poor service and lack of communication. Not a Debspick.

This was a lovely dining experience and the prix fixe menu was an excellent value. The waitstaff was warm and efficient and the food was terrific. I highly recommend the vegetable lasagna; it was outstanding. The dressing for the Camembert salad could have used a bit more acid, but the salad was still quite good. My husband enjoyed his wild salmon, and the creme brûlée was excellent. Beautiful decor and well spaced tables; would definitely return.

Came here to try the Restaurant Week menu - dinner for two. It was a girls night out. While we enjoyed the ambiance and comfortable dining room seating, the major complaint was the slow service. Don't misunderstand, good service was received when attended to but the whole pace of the meal was slow. For instance, when my appetizer arrived, my glass of wine still did not appear which most places would have brought out straight away after ordering/in between the complimentary bread basket and wait time for the food. I did receive more attentive service from the gentleman with the Spanish accent in the beige uniform (I wish I got his name) than our server (in the black uniforms). I only saw my server twice, once to order and once more for the check. Not sure if this is the norm.

Onto the food, I enjoyed the Duck Prosciutto salad as my appetizer and my Diver Scallop Dinner entrée. But I noticed inconsistencies in the food presented. A nearby table ordered the same Dinner but her scallops came with Asparagus and mine came with a red cabbage. My guest ordered the Mustard White Wine Chicken which came with risotto - the risotto was hard - al dente if you must but I've never known risotto to be described as such. It shouldn't ever be. Again, the neighboring table ordered risotto and her portion was twice the portion and soft. Go figure. This place is inconsistent in service and in food quality. I was sadly disappointed as the menu offered both RW and regular dining looked to have great options.

I hadn’t been here before. We ended up eating from the restaurant week menu as it had a cauliflower and fish soup we wanted to try. We both also had a chicken dish with risotto that was excellent. The only discipline it was it is out. I had a French toast and peat combination that was try and not very flavorful.

I should have believed the bad reviews, the food is horrible!
the only thing worse than the food is the service.
NYC has hundreds of French bistros, this is NOT one of them.
take your money elsewhere.

Always wanted to try this place since I worked near it. Decided to go durning restaurant week with a friend to check it out. Had a great experience. Our waiter was Leo and he was great. Helped my friend choose a wine she liked and made us smile every time he came to the table with his little jokes. The food was amazing and cannot wait to go back to try their regular menu.

Have stayed at Sofitel previously but have not had dinner at Gaby- received an email special offering which piqued our interest-but opted for their own prix fixe menu instead and it was not only a great deal but the food was perfectly portioned, delicious and service excellent. We’d definitely go back without hesitation.
