Gaby Brasserie Française Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
EXCEPTIONAL service! The moment you enter, you will feel immediately welcomed in this establishment. The cuisine offered here speaks for itself, but what makes this restaurant special and memorable is the staff. Highly recommend, especially pre and post theater.
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.
