Gato will remind you why Bobby Flay became famous in the first place - because he can cook.
Loved the experience! We had reservation for a table but chose to eat at the bar. Lovely restaurant, lovely atmosphere, and delicious food - we had the eggplant appetizer, Gato salad, and Kale paella. Ordered the Lorenzo cocktail at someone’s recommendation, delicious and refreshing!
As would be expected of Bobby Flay, the fool is instense with so much flavour. The service is spot on, not stuffy, but very professional. I love the room with the windows into the kitchen. It would have been better if Bobby himself was in there.
Traveling with 2 friends
One meal was not satisfactory-fish overcooked-staff was very accommodating and provided another meal-did not charge us-much appreciated
Helped us to celebrate our birthdays in style
I love both the food and the special cocktails at Gato. Highly recommend the pork chop! The shrimp appetizer was great too. Pricey, but at least worth it for the quality food. My only negative is the lighting - which is a bit too dark to see the menu. The bathrooms are extremely dark also.
Great! Loved their rose cava and the ricotta was amazing!
Great service, great food.
Great food and very attentive service. We even got to meet Bobby Flay who happened to be there and he was very friendly and down to earth. Inventive Italian based cuisine with the Bobby Flay fair. I will definitely try it again because there was a lot of things on the menu that I would like to try
Mother’s Day Brunch
Extremely disappointing. We were there for Mother’s Day. It took 45 minutes between appetizer and entree. Manager said it was due to one of the entrees not being perfect so the chef wanted to remake it. As a result the remaining 3 entrees were served lukewarm. When our waiter finally came over to check on our meal we were mostly done and all he said was I’ll let management know. Certainly not worth $350.
Amazing! Everything was executed perfectly. One word: paella!!!
Nice place -food bland ,nothing exciting -service was ok a little slow - bar staff nice -
Excellent food menu and selection. We tried the bar bites along with an entrée. Wine was delicious they had a wide assortment. As other guests have commented, it does get quite loud, even though we were on the far end of the restaurant away from the bar. However, the food was amazing. Definitely worth the visit and would come back again. Especially being a Bobby Flay restaurant I felt the prices were very reasonable especially by NYC standards. We celebrated a birthday and they brought out a dessert with a candle on it. I notified the hostess ahead of time.
We had a wonderful meal and service was efficient. Our waitress was a little impatient with us but that did not spoil the experience.
An All-Star dining experience! We enjoyed the moment we entered and greeted by hottesses, seated to our table, introduced the menu and served with delicious and flavorful food.
Our 4 hours drive to Gato from Penn National Golf Course, PA was worth it!
Food was amazing. Service was a bit slow to start but got better. Bar area is impressive. Really like all the exposed brick, including the ceiling!
Great server and wonderful food!!!
Gato is an upscale restaurant with great food, good wine list and nice ambience. The server was slow to get to us and the noise level made it difficult to talk (not energetic just too loud) to the one person with me and I assume harder with more people. I get that the restaurant was designed to fit the neighborhood, but someone should have sat there before continuing to design bar, kitchen, table placement etc. Add noise softening panels to the ceiling to cut down on volume.
The food was excellent from the octopus and Gato salad for appetizer to the rabbit and halibut entrees, all perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The bottle of Rose was excellent and at a good price point for a restaurant bottle of wine. Bread pudding and the tart were a great way to finish the meal.
I went there with a friend. First timers, certainly repeat customers. We loved everything--food, drinks, ambience. Friendly staff and excellent service!
Excellent Soho ( technically Noho) haunt with great bar scene. Roomy with moody lighting and superb cocktails. Great waitstaff.
Every dish was excellent! Portions were the right size.
Bobby Flay never fails to deliver. Food here is outstanding.
A great meal. Plenty of options for my wife who is vegetarian. The scrambled egg appetizer is a must and you can't go wrong with the charred carrots. Service was spot on!
The noise level was insane and food good. Definitely great to meet for drinks but not for a date unless you like to scream at your date and keep asking “what did you say?”
The best pasta I have ever ate! Wonderful restaurante!
The eggplant bar dish was unbelievable- loved it. And the scrambled eggs and toast were incredible - never expected that to be so good! Waiter was friendly and prompt. Overall a delightful experience.
Loved this place- everyone friendly and the mood was relaxed yet upscale. Will happily return any day- food was delicious (of course) as well!
Service and food were excellent!
Great food and very nice atmosphere
Always have a great meal and great service at Gato. HIghly recommend for every day meals and special occasions.
Food and service were excellent, great suggestions from our waiter.
Absolutely amazing meal.
We came for dinner & shared the shrimp and scrambled eggs appetizers - which are a can’t miss.
We also shared the charred beef as an entree with a side of the cauliflower and were blown away by the flavor on both.
We will be coming back and I can certainly recommend Gato for any first timers thinking of trying it!
Was great food and service
This is my first time at the GATO. I really enjoyed my experience. Not sure why people complain about the service, I saw nothing wrong with it. As a matter of fact, it appears as though the waiters and waitresses go out of their way to be helpful, kind and be attentive to their tables. It was great service and would recommend it to friends and family.
I had such a great time. I can’t wait until I go back again
The food was outstanding! Server a little snob. Very noisy...... overall good experience
The place is stunning. The people were so nice and the service was on point. We got our food SO FAST!! It was beyond what I ever would have expected in flavor. So so good.
The first thing I need to say about GATO is that the service is exceptional. We had someone assigned to bus our table as well as just a couple other tables around us so we never went without water or had to sit with empty dishes in front of us. Our server, Emma, was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and paid attention to the details of our party. The food was what we expected- nothing that sounded special on the menu but instead was so perfectly executed on its arrival to the table that we were beyond pleased. Not being my first Bobby Flay restaurant experience, I feel that’s the Bobby Flay signature. Bobby doesn’t need to create a completely new unheard of dish to present when he can just take an already well known dish and do it better, much better. For example, scrambled eggs are listed on the menu but I assure you, this is not the same as the scrambled eggs you serve up in your kitchen! Our bill plus tip was under $200 for two people and that included 3 small bites, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 desserts, and 1 cocktail. GATO has a very hip, trendy, fun vibe best suited for a lively evening and not a romantic night out. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for date night or hanging out with friends or family.
Great personable service, didn’t rush us at all but at the same time friendly and always available. Food was delicious.
Phenomenal meal from beginning to end. The small plates were all outstanding. They are small for the price, but really really delicious and, ultimately, worth it. The other dishes were fantastic. Some highlights : the burrata, the eggplant, the octopus, the Kale paella and the date cake.
