Always a perfect experience at Gabi James! During COVID, they now have outdoor seating set up with heat lamps - made for a perfect setting to complement the incredible food and drinks!
Music choice a bit to pack for a leisurely early evening dinner. But as always the food and service were off the charts.
I just feel that we were rushed to finish dinner in 90 minutes. I kept looking at my watch to make sure we don’t go over.
Cute environment. Bottomless mimosas have a time limit of 90min.
Great food and service
We are regulars and LOVE Gabi James one of our neighborhood faves by far! The only disappointment last time was the special bean & peaches salad - wasn't good: peaches were actually nectarines that weren't ripe and the beans were dry and vinegary. However the french fries great and my faves, the Kale Salad and the Spinach with Chickpeas as AWESOME as ever!! We also love the Potato Croquettes, and the Ragu is to die for!! See you next week... oh and the Beach Cruiser gin cocktail is amazing.
Great food, excellent wine recommendations, super service.
Always good when the Gabi James team remembers and welcomes you. The food was excellent and the table we had gave us some privacy as well as a view across Catalina. Perfect.
Nice Spanish food. Something different, but not too different!
Went for lunch. Menu for egg, eggs, and more eggs. Noon on Friday, or on Saturday or Sunday, is for lunch, not breakfast. Many people want eggs, but I am sure and equal number want meat, fish, pasta, etc.
Great drinks, delicious food, friendly service outside.
We were rushed from the beginning of our reservation and our food arrived in the wrong order.
Our waitress asked us to leave promptly at 8:00 after our 6:30 reservation while we still had cocktails to finish.
Great food and cocktails. Just wish the 1.5 hour max wasn’t enforced on a $200+bill. Felt a bit rushed out. Overall still would come back.
We were not sure what to expect during COVID, but the service was friendly and accommodating, food was great as always and our tables were distanced appropriately. It was a very enjoyable evening
The waiter was so rude. We didn’t even tried the food.
Just wanted a place to chill during Pandemic times...easy, cozy, chill.
Peach salad was fantastic and their Paella keeps evolving...nice improvements overall though.
Am not a fan of the mandatory minimum amount of time that can be spent at the table. Only restaurant I've ever known to enforce a hard cap on time. Won't be going back because of it.
Need more shade outside. Waitress was very good. Spanish food excellent
Everything was great, except for the fact that we were forced to leave at 9pm, so basically an hr and half at the table....
Birthday dinner/girls night-delicious, fresh food, tasty and balanced cocktails. A very special place in the South Bay!
Nice outdoor seating. Great food and drinks. Just a bit pricey.
Fantastic night.. loved the service, food and outdoor experience!
Great food but my ragu arrived cold.
The salad was not as good as last time too much cheese and not enough almonds.
This has instantly become one of our favorite restaurants in LA, and it’s definitely our favorite restaurant in the Hollywood riviera! Food and drinks are so fantastic, service is amazing. Thanks you and we will be back
Neighborhood standby. The kind of place I keep coming back to.
Great outdoor dining and people watching spot.
SUPER FRIENDLY STAFF.GREAT FOOD. GREAT OCEAN VIEW!!
Delicious food, good service... glad to be sitting on the shady "patio" space. Gabi James is always a treat!
Green Eggs and Ham is my favorite!
This restaurant has got it together with the Covid protocols. They have set everything up so make it as enjoyable and safe as possible at their outdoor parkette’s
Service was sometimes a bit slow, but perhaps that is because the waiter ambas more of a distance to go to the kitchen? And sadly they were out of their red Sangria by noon.
Food was great and fresh. Will return for another Sunday brunch!
Kidding FYI m
We had a great night.The food was delicious!
Maria was an absolute joy! Especially for us mamas who were on our first night out in months. Can’t wait to come back, her service was amazing!!!
The food at Gabi Janes is always great. Lots of outdoor seating now and service still as good as ever. Was nice to get out and enjoy a good meal.
Excellent tapas and entrees! Friendly, knowledgeable service. Original cocktails--I love the Beach Cruiser, a refreshing gin based summer cocktail.
Especially during this pandemic, it was great to be able to celebrate our anniversary be having dinner at Gabi James outdoor. It felt like a real date. We are super careful making sure we continue to stay safe.
