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.

I've always enjoyed the breakfast at the Sofitel! Sadly the over medium eggs were raw (not even over easy) so they had to go back to the kitchen to get redone. I guess it can happen but someone that makes eggs should really be able to tell the difference.

I've been here several times and enjoy it each time. Good French inspired food, really good service. Not loud so you can actually have a conversation whether its with your spouse, a date or work colleagues. I love that the wait staff is not intrusive but always seem to be there when you need them.

Made reservations for Thanksgiving Day lunch and I was not aware lunch was buffet rather than prefixed dining which should be noted clearing at the time of making reservations. I was under the impression that pre-fixed lunch was a good value $68 per person, but upon arrival for buffet the value is not work $68. Also for buffet style, juice and coffee should be complementary not in addition to the $68. Although the staff was very nice, he was only able to offer us water, so I was taken back that 20% service gratuity was automatically added to a standard party of 4 and on top of tax. Also, for buffet without wait service, why is the 20% service gratuity for? The overall experience was a let down and unfortunately left a bad dining experience that I would not recommend to others.

We went there for Sunday brunch before theater and really enjoyed our experience. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and given the kind of table I had requested, with an offer to change to a different one if we wanted to. Always a nice gesture at any restaurant. The server was wonderful and efficient and did a great job of helping with our selections and making sure all went smoothly. He and the hostess also arranged a way for me to reach the restroom without walking stairs, There are no stairs to enter the restaurant from the street, just to the restroom in the hotel lobby one flight up.

The only disappointing thing was that the entree we both chose. The Eggs Royale (a smoked salmon benedict) wasn't as good as we were expecting it to be because of the hollandaise sauce. If we return, we would go choose something else or go for dinner instead.

We had a wonderful pre-fixe meal that was five courses for $42 without wine pairings and $79 with wine pairings. My husband had short ribs which he thought were amazing, and I had duck a l'orange as an entree. The service was fantastic. The food was great. The price was good. I can't complain about anything. I intend to go back with friends in the future.

We went out for dinner after work to celebrate my husband's dinner with our son and his girlfriend. We had a very nice time . Very good service, nice quiet place. We choose a pri-fixed dinner with paring wine and were pleasantly surprised that they do not cut the portions. Onion soup was yummy. The filet mignon was very good. Red snapper appetizer was OK. But overall we enjoyed our food and had a good time.

This is a reliable Sunday brunch purveyor in the very French Sofitel hotel. "Bottomless" Bloody Mary or Mimosas was a good deal and kept coming freely. Excellent eggs benedict, croque madame, other standard brunch fare. Excellent service. Quiet ambiance, permits conversation easily.

Ate here with the fixed menu for $38 before heading to Town Hall and it was just great. Service was good, food was tasty, and price was right. Not a fancy atmosphere, but not downscale either. Just right for us that night.

I went during restaurant week. We had the Corn soup, duck and apple galette. The corn soup is served cold but it was very good and plentiful. It had nice flavor and wasn't salty. The duck was excellent. I think it was Asian flavors. It was cooked medium. The skin had a lot of flavor and was not fatty so rendered nicely. Nice amount of duck. The apple galette was nice but could have used a little ice cream. The apple was tart and the ice cream would have added a nice sweetness. I would go back just for the duck.

I decided to try Gaby's because it was close to the show I was attending and because it was participating in restaurant week. I was impressed with the quality of the service and cuisine. The French 75 was well-made and not at all sweet (I hate sweet cocktails). The duck was served at just the right temperature of medium rare and the sauce had the required complexity of sweet and spice. The burrata starter was hearty, and the lemon curd was delicious. The service was friendly and prompt. A good place for me to return to in the future because it's close enough to the theatre district without the craziness of Times Square places.
