    Everything from start to finish was perfection! Service was fast and attentive, food was delicious, and cocktails were amazing! Joined for dinner but can’t wait to come for brunch or maybe their golden hour. Live in culver but worth the drive to come dine here! Get the paella and the pan y tomate Logistical: PM bartender ( who was amazing) provided table service to us in their indoor patio ( read outdoor but not parking spot conversion area) was just the right of noise level to still have a conversation but not worry that everyone can hear what you’re saying. Bring a light jacket as it can be breezy :) the heaters helped tho !

    Bad food bad service and the worst, most expensive cocktails. Pretentious beyond and no one seemed to care. My party went to a place down the street and got better service, food and drinks. Never again.

    This was our first time going here for dinner. The food was okay, nothing notable, the service was okay, not great. I would have rather gone somewhere else for the price we paid. We won’t be returning., the restaurant didn’t meet our expectations.

    We sat outside on an evening when the fog made it chilly. Waitress was friendly and helpful. She recommended the shrimp which was delicious. We ordered several dishes to share - all good but not great.

    Great atmosphere, food and service. The only weird thing is their insistence that you have your table for 2 hours. I thought it was a little odd when I booked the reservation but they actually use a dry erase marker and put your departure time on a card on your table. I have never seen that and Dan only think they have had a big issue with lingering tables.

    Great food, reasonable prices - service seemed a little “off”. Asked for our reservation name 3 different times and wasn’t even busy. Loved the tuna tartare and garlic shrimp. Not a fan of scannable menus taped to a table at a restaurant of this quality with the closing times hand written on it. And playing Violent Femmes- love the band, but seemed out of place.

    This place never disappoints! It is one of our favorite places in Riviera Village. I love the gin menu! This time we had the calamari which was crisp and fresh, and the kale salad. We often have the citrus quince salad as our main go-to. The service was friendly and attentive. We ate at an outdoor table on a lovely evening, finishing off with the raspberry bread pudding and a aperitif.

    All the food was very good. The tuna tartare, which is a new dish, was much tastier than the first time we had it. And the mushrooms with fried egg, and the citrus quince salad were outstanding, as always.

    The food was good and our waitperson was very nice. It seems reasonable, price wise. We were there on a Friday night. I have no idea whether the crowd we saw was typical of a particular night or any night. I would say make a reservation and be prepared for it to be noisy. I hadn't realized (and hadn't asked) what the dress code was and we overdressed. Casual seems to be the dress code. Parking is not easy there. We were lucky and got a spot across the street. The restaurant is similar to what one might see in Barcelona, on the order of a Tapas bar. I truly hadn't realized that. The food was good.

    I’ve never had a bad meal at Gabi James. Everyone but me had their favorite, Oxtail Ragu, which is delicious! I opted for the Gambas al ajillo and roasted mushrooms - and I was immensely happy. The Chardonnay we ordered hit the spot as well. Gabi James is a favorite of ours, not just for the food, but the atmosphere and very personable staff. We plan to keep coming.
