Gaby Restaurant at Sofitel Luxury Hotel - NY Ratings and Reviews
Overall I give this restaurant a 3/5. I had made a last minute reservation to dine with my brother and mother. We were very excited to order when we read that the owner was the winner of Food Network's Chopped but were left a little less than satisfied when we took a bite of the salmon. We found it to be dry and lacking flavor. The fish and chips were delicious; the fries were pretty interesting and tasteful for that sort of restaurant. I have to make a comment about our waiter whose service was fine only he came back to our table everytime smelling like cigarette smoke. Other than that the ambiance was great. Very cute restaurant. Maybe they should focus a little more on the quality of the food and less about the presentation of it.
First of all, the waiter was attentive and impeccably mannered. This really makes a difference in the experience. Also, their lunch specials are fantastic - you get to choose amongst city-themed combinations (London, Paris, New York). They are delicious and reasonably-priced. I usually go here for lunch meetings and after-work drinks, and I am very happy to have this place.
Very nice genuine French style menu and preparation. The duck breast with polenta was cooked just right. I also enjoyed the French red wine flight. Restaurant was somewhat empty but it was a Tuesday in the Times square district where there are lots of other things to do and places to eat. Overall I enjoyed it and I would return and take anyone who wanted a taste of France in NYC!
Arrived well before dinner reservations and thus were able to enjoy leisurely time in cocktail lounge. There, our drinks and wine were perfect (we have special requests) and food offerings were prompt. Our waiter (Mettee(sp?))was knowledgeable,affable and best... also handled our dinner order at dining table. Attentive service, good food and ambiance was exactly what we wanted for an easy afternoon/evening before theatre!
What a find! The atmosphere is lovely;quiet, mellow and well appointed.We could actually carry on a conversation! Everyone who works here is polite and attentive. The waiters are especially pleasant and anxious to please without being overbearing or solicitous. The service was well paced and special requests were taken care of with a smile.The food was good, portions plentiful, and well presented. This was our 2nd visit before theater and we will certainly go back just for a great dining experience.
there were 3 of us and in the end, one of our dining companions had a problem with her steak. our orders were delicious but unfortunately, the one person who had a problem with her steak had to see the manager. her entree was comped but overall, the experience was very good. we enjoyed the dining experience and happy that they had corrected the potential bad situation. we left gaby's very happy and satisfied. Great staff.
We had lunch at noon with a party of just three. The staff was friendly and had a sense of humor. I can't even say it was pricey, because we certainly got what we paid for...It was amazing! We had the 30 min. lunch...I went with Paris, my friends, with Atlanta. The price included a soup (wonderful), a salad with fresh tuna, a petit filet mignon (so tender)and an exceptionally light creme brulee I can't say enough about how great the food was. I live nearly an hour and a half from the city, but I will make a trip soon just to go back to Gaby
I went there for brunch with an out of town guest on Sunday which was OK. I ordered a Croque Monsieur which was impossible to eat. The sandwich was on white bread cut into quarters and the pieces were all stuck to each other. I ate the fries. That was it. He ahd the eggs benedict which he seemed to like. I went for breakfast with a guest on Tues (this reservation) and ordered a fruit plate. The only edible fruit was the blackberries. The cost $29 - for a terrible fruit plate. OMG. Will never go back!
The service was attentive and the atmosphere relaxed and relatively quiet. Gaby's food was very good, I especially recommend their version of French Onion Soup. However, unless you only order an entree with no salad, appetizers, drinks or coffee, the cost will be higher than $30. Although requested, tap water was not served, leading to a $27 water bill for 3 bottles of water for our group of 5. With an 18% gratuity added for my convenience, our total cost per person averaged $70 for lunch, so the OpenTable cost indicator of $$ was quite misleading.
One of the better hotel bars that I've been to. My crabcake wasn't bad, but the highlight was my associate's pepper-laden steak. The meat was cooked to perfection, and pepper always makes things better. (I'd return just for that!) The venue itself is perfectly acceptable - especially when you walk into the main dining area - but the extended dining room is ho-hum, and more of an afterthought. But I'm no interior decorator, so don't take my word for it.
Service was excellent. We were there for brunch, and the food and atmosphere were wonderful. I had the goat cheese and wild mushroom quiche, with a small salad...delicious. My husband had a Spanish omlet made with egg whites...also, delicious. The wait staff was very friendly, the view from our table for two was perfect for people-watching, and we enjoyed seeing the Lalique Christmas tree in the lobby (at the hostess's recommendation - otherwise, we would have missed it!). Good experience.
I was looking for a French restaurant to take me cousin to for dinner. He is from Paris and said there are few "real" French restaurants in the city that he likes. He had not been to Gaby. He liked it a lot. The one item he wanted, the dessert platter, was sold out and he was disappointed as he said most American restaurants don't have this dessert feature. Nevertheless, the dessert he ordered was fabulous.
Disappointed. Took my family there for Thanksgiving dinner. Soup was really bland. Salad was excellent. Turkey was dry. The pea mash tasted like chalk. Desert was excellent. But I ordered coffee with our desert. Did not come until at least fifteen minutes after they brought us desert. They brought us nicely pressed coffees. But just left it at the end of the table. If I am spending $250 on a meal I don't think I should have to get up to get the coffee at the other end of the table and pour it myself. And they weren't busy. I love the look of the place. But overall we left wishing we went somewhere else.
