Gaby Brasserie Française Ratings and Reviews
Came here with hubby during restaurant week. Food is pretty good. The steak was delicious. The fish was not bad but I've had better. dessert was good but nothing extraordinary. Overall, it was a good experience with good food. We did have to ask 3 times before we got our lemon for our water though, but overall service was good. It was pretty quiet for a Friday night. It wasn't packed and we could talk without shouting like at some other restaurants.
I went with 8 women from work for restaurant week. We loved the food. We appreciated being seated in the back section making a more intimate room. We loved the presentation of our meals and they were delicious. Excellent service. Not too slow, not too fast-just right. Thank you very much.
If you do nothing else, go to the Gaby Restaurant for their French onion soup. It remains the best I have ever had. That, the bread and a Bloody Mary or Mimosa, and you will be in heaven. You need patience here (it is French :)! ). Wait staff could have been more attentive (i.e., long time in between table side visits). But I had what I needed.
When all you want is good food, good wine and a quiet place where you can talk, this is the place. The jazz in the background only adds to the ambiance. The service was wonderful - a waiter who actually knew the dishes AND the wines. The tables by the windows can be a bit drafty, but the people watching is worth it. My companion has the salmon, I the branzini and both were wonderful. And - forget about carbs - go for those slices of olive loaf. The soup - we both had the butternut squash - was perfect. A very pleasant evening can be had just a few steps east of the bustle of TSq.
We have been to Gaby's for Sunday lunch many, many times, and we always enjoyed their lunch menu choices. As always, the service is excellent, being both attentive and friendly. The servers are very, very nice. However, Gaby's has now introduced a Sunday brunch menu to replace the previous lunch menu, which unfortunately did not meet our expectations. The "croque madame" was disappointing; they no longer offer the "croque monsieur", which used to be excellent. My husband's "eggs Benedict" were only okay, the hollandaise sauce being not very tasty and also very little. The brunch menu includes an unlimited drinks choice for an additional $20 with any brunch entrée, which we did not take. I imagine this is a new idea to drum up business, but the quality of the dishes must be addressed as well. We hope Gaby's will take this review in a constructive manner, as we love to go there and would love to continue doing so.
Dos and Manuel were the highlights of our experience, given their friendly and expert service. The food was good although it might have better exemplified the French cuisine promised by the name. I think the brunch menu can be strengthened, particularly with more vegetarian options. Somewhat too pricy. Nevertheless, everything tasted great, wonderful breads, an attractive drink special made for a very positive experience. Mundane ambience but adequate setting. Overall experience was very good.
Gaby has an inventive menu. Had scallops in a sort of broth-- tasted fine but not something I would repeat. However, I have to say it was interesting. Shared appetizers were delicious. Fish was extremely;y well done. Stick to dishes that are not quite so unique and you will have a fine meal in a very pleasant setting
The food was really good except i felt that the waiter's helper was kind rush to push us to finish our dinner even though there was only few tables when my friend & I got there at 5:30 pm. He constantly asked us if we were done & could he remove our dishes. Worst yet, the waiter couldn't wait to give us the bill even though we didn't ask for the bill & just finished our deserts.
I am not so sure if I wanted to go back the restaurant even though I really liked their food
Excellent service and wonderful food choices. However, the scallops with mushrooms was highly over salted. Otherwise, the staff was great. We were a group of 7 ( originally 5) and they rearranged the ables for us. When they found out that one of the guests was there for her birthday, they brought a special plate with wonderful dessert chocolate tulip with mousse inside and also creme brûlée on a plate with the words happy Birthday written in chocolate!
Fantastic! when we mentioned the sale scallops at the end of the meal , they brough out an extra dessert for everyone to share. Very thoughtful. Good wines too.
We were staying at the Sofetil Hotel and decided to have dinner at Gaby's on the night of our arrival. Our waiter Meti was outstanding and we enjoyed talking with him. The food was very good. We enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu selections and chose from that. My wife had the chicken dinner which was good but a little dry. I enjoyed the monk fish dinner which was outstanding. A very nice evening of dining and talking. We would plan to return especially if Meti is still on staff.
Went during Restaurant Week to celebrate boyfriend's birthday. When we arrived the flowers I ordered through Open Table were already placed at on reserved table.
The wait staff were very attentive. Our waiter even brought us complimentary glasses of champagne.
The restaurant was not large and a con of dining in a hotel is having to go inside and downstairs to use the restrooms. On a Friday night it wasn't crowded and relatively quiet. Lighting was adequate
The food was good. My boyfriend really enjoyed the duck. I wasn't as impressed by the monkfish. Portions were ample but the courses were staggered just too long for me (it was perfect for my date).
Had an excellent meal with attentive service. Duck entree and risotto ( two of us) were beautifully presented and deleicious. The golden beet and goat cheese salad was good, also.. Server was helpful and nothing was overlooked.
But, $7 for a single espresso was a bit pricey considering the menu items were expensive but not to such a degree.
I enjoyed a delicious brunch with my family for Mothers Day. My salmon eggs benedict was on point, and Gaby's excellent french press coffee hit the spot. Large windows, relaxed atmosphere, and a lovely table with street view added to the convivial ambience. Wait staff were attentive and professional. Looking forward to my next meal at Gaby!!
