This was a perfect spot to enjoy dinner before the theatre. They happy to understand we had tickets but did not rush us either. The food was delicious and I would definitely make a return trip to enjoy a long leisurely dinner.

The food was very good. Both my friend and I had the price fixe dinner.The portions were adequate and there were several choices.

The food was excellent and beautifully prepared, especially the duck. The Camembert salad was delicious, and the desserts were wonderful, especially the creme brûlée. Service and atmosphere were excellent. The theater menu was also a very good value.

Steak in the steak frites was cold. It costs enough to ensure the meat wasn't cold

Overall the place lacked atmosphere. The waiter and service was find. My meal was very good; I had the octopus salad and lamb chops. My wife had the Cesar salad, which was OK and the crusted sea-bass, which was overcooked and dried out. I don't think we'll be back

It was restaurant week... I get it ... you pay attention to specials... not everyone wants 3 course meal... Chicken Paillard for French Bistro is a staple and should always be perfect ... ours was a collection of left over pieces cooked 3 days ago, microwaved and dry as wood !!

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.
