Our menu was created by South Bay native and chef extraordinaire, Chris Feldmeier, of Mozza and Moruno fame, alongside longtime Gabriele restaurant veteran, Jorge Torres. The bar takes shape with an awesome trifecta. Vincenzo Marianella, of Copa d’Oro and Providence, has created a cocktail program that features house crafted juices and ingredients as well as a wide variety of spirits. Sara and Adam have curated a wine list and beer program that shines with local offerings as well as Spanish and French that pair great with the menu and stand tall on their own.
We enjoy dining at Gabi James. The food and service is consistently great.
Super friendly. High quality food. Great setting.
From start to finish,
Fantastic!! The appetizers, wine, cocktail selection were a perfect pairing.
The dinner was superb and the way they treated our birthday guest was fabulous.
Great cocktails, food and service. The staff was super attentive and the menu was fun and flavorful.
The drinks were delicious and food scrumptious! Table service was slow (it was not crowded whatsoever) but all staff were polite.
Thank you so much Ali! We are so glad you enjoyed your food and drinks. We apologize that service was slower thank you hoped and we hope we will see you again soon!
First time dining here— Angelica was a great, knowledgeable server who walked us through the menu and helped us pick great choices. Great selection of craft beer, wine and cocktails.
We are so happy you enjoyed everything! Thank you so much for joining us! We hope that you will back soon!
Thanks Sheila! See you soon!
We were a party of 7 for my husband’s 71st birthday. Every one of my family members, from age 34 to 88, had a wonderful time. They all got into the idea of sharing small plates—well, the food was excellent, so it’s not surprising. Great service, a happy space, wonderful food!
Thank you so much for celebrating your husband's birthday with us! We truly appreciate being a part of the special day and are so happy you enjoyed!
Delicious food, interesting menu, friendly service. Consistent at every visit.
We really appreciate you visiting us and your kind review. We can't wait for you to visit us again. Cheers!
Robert is fantastic. Victor is an amazing host. Love this place. I took my boss from out of town and she loved it!
Thank you so much! We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit with us and Robert & Victor! We are very lucky to have a team! Please come visit again soon!
Gabri James is our favorite local restaurant. French toast on the brunch menu is to die for!
Thank you so much! We really appreciate you dining with us and cannot wait for you to join us again!
Food was not great. 2 of the 6 dishes we ordered were good the rest was poor.
The service was sub par. The main dishes were not served together. Our firms waited for 20 min to get his and our got cold.
We wanted to give it a second chance after a first bad experience and we will not go back.
We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with your visit to Gabi James. Please note, and we certainly hope your server let you know, that our food is served family style and brought to the table as the individual dishes are ready and we do not serve meals in courses. We again regret that you did not enjoy your visit. Have a nice evening.
Delightful meal in flavor, portion size and presentation. Knowledgeable, efficient wait staff
Thank you very much Sandy. We hope that you come back again soon!
Very interesting menu, but the food was much too salty.
Thank you for your review Karen. We are sorry that the dishes were saltier than you prefer but we hope that you will join us again very soon!
Everything we ate and drank was great quality, thoughtfully put together, and TASTY AF. The service was also wonderful. The atmosphere is great. Good for girls night or date night. I’ve already planned my return. Get the meatballs, tuna crudo, and a fancy G&T.
Wow! Thank you for your kind words! We are so happy that you had such a great time! We are so happy to hear that you have already planned your return and can't wait to have you here again!
Outstanding service and excellent food. Worth it for the cocktail program alone. Will definitely return.
Thanks Thomas for your great compliments! We are so happy you enjoyed everything. Come back soon...there are plenty of great cocktails to try with your meal!
We came for brunch and everything was great. Thank you. We can’t wait to come back for Sunday night paella dinner.
We can't wait to have you for Paella Sundays! Thank you for your kind words regarding our brunch!
Got a GREAT patio spot, Service was super good, and we enjoyed the food.
Cheers! Thank you so much! We can't wait for you to join us again!
Gabi James is our go-to place for a special meal, whether it's date night, taking our kids somewhere special, or having a party of 50 friends and family members in their upstairs room. The food is always fantastic, the service is always warm and welcoming, and the ambiance and location are terrific, too.
Cara, thank you so much! We are always here for a celebration, whether its a 50th B-Day or just a celebration of Monday! See you soon!
Angelica, our server was exceptional. Myself and my guests are caterers and the food was perfect, and the service from everyone involved was great. The Cocktails are fun and so creative. Great place.
Thank you so much! We are so glad you enjoyed your dinner and drinks as well as your server Angelica...she's a gem!
Our hostess greeted us warmly as she sat as at our table outside. Robert appeared very quickly at our table to get us started and returned several times throughout the evening. We got to know the party at the table next to ours--it's a very friendly ambiance there--and they made recommendations of what to eat. The Albondigas Chimayo and the Tortillas Espanol were WONDERFUL! The flavoring, texture, temperature - they were soooo good! Several of us were drinking the ALBARIÑO ‘TURONIA’; some had more than one. We also tried the Roasted Mushrooms; they were good, not out of this world. The Gamabas Al Ajillo, however, were wonderful (if you like them with garlic, and I do)! The others at the table were equally happy with their Pomegranate Lamb Chops and Flank Steak. Our feast continued with delicious Chocolate Bread Pudding; being someone not a fan of the mushy bread texture of bread pudding, I was won over by the excellent chocolatey flavor.
During the course of the evening, we all enjoyed each other's company, as well as our neighboring diners, pedestrians walking by with dogs and babies, and the wonderful crew at Gabi James.
Yes, I'm a FAN!
You are wonderful and so was the rest of your group. We really enjoyed having you and I know Robert, your server, appreciated having such a lovely table as well. We are so happy that you enjoyed everything and truly appreciate you celebrating with us. We cannot wait to have you visit us again!
Everything was perfect until after we had eaten and we’re enjoying our amazing drinks the waitress brought us our check, but we wanted to continue drinking. We’d even told her that we wanted to possibly have another. I’m guessing they wanted the table since they were busy. We’d still go back, so good.
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to Gabi James. We apologize that your server dropped your check sooner than you preferred but we hope to see you again soon!
Great service by Masha & team! Amazing food.
The food was good, not great, and service was below expectations. It was a busy night, but it was clear we were under serviced with ample time and space for more attention to detail and unfulfilled drink requests. A far cry from Zazou despite being under the same ownership with a wave of cosmetic simplification.
The food and wine were perfection! We had a sitter for a date night but kids would have enjoyed it too. Love the open flow of the set up!
Hi Jen! We are so happy you enjoyed it and would love you to bring the little ones back next time, but we know how important date night! We hope to see you again very soon!
Food and service were great. Very nice selection of wines. We had fun doing our own wine pairing with our waiter Robert’s guidance.
Hi Julie Thank you very much for joining us! We appreciate your kind words regarding our food, wine and your server, Robert. Please come visit us again very soon!
First time dining here, though we are quite experienced with tapas style dining. We ordered the olive mix, the garlic shrimp, the Serrano ham, the octopus with ink aioli, and the filet mignon. Everything was prepared to perfection, we commend the kitchen on its exacting standards for both the octopus and the filet!
The gin list was exciting with a wide range of options. Who knew there were so many varieties of tonic water?
We will most certainly return as this was an exceptional restaurant.
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit at Gabi James and the you enjoyed your food and some of our many gin and tonic options! We hope you will visit us again very soon!
Reservation time was extended due to lack of tables. Had to wait another 45 minutes. Would not recommend this place if in a hurry or hungry. Friendly bar service, good drinks, large selection of gin.
Watch out for their paella, made with macaroni not rice, a bit chewy. Small and medium plates are good. Large plates not worth it for the price.
Thank you so much for joining us at Gabi James. We are so happy you enjoyed it and we appreciate your understanding the wait on the busy holiday weekend. We hope to see you again very soon!
Service and food is fantastic. Excellent take on Tapas from spectacular version of standard tortilla espinosa to new take on albondigas. Gambas, skirt steak and ox tail ragout are fantastic.
We really appreciate you visiting us at Gabi James and we are so happy you enjoyed our take on Spanish & French food. We hope you will visit us again very soon!
Thanks Sheila! Come visit again soon...Cheers!
Great ambience and food was great, service was a little slow.
Great service, great location, great food
Hope to see you again soon! Cheers!
Their appetizers appetizers are very good as well as their cocktails and wine selection. The entrees aren’t your traditional Spanish plates. We tend to stick with the small plates. Nice ambiance.
Thanks so much for dining with us at Gabi James! We are happy to hear you enjoyed our take on Spanish & French food!
The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. We really liked the menu choices and the uniqueness of flavors in each dish we ordered.
The ambience was enjoyable and we look forward to going back soon!
We can't wait for you to join us again Lisa! We are so happy that enjoyed your visit with us and appreciate your kind words!
Outstanding on every level - a truly great restaurant
What an amazing compliment! Come back soon! Cheers!
Our server was kind, attentive and had an excellent grasp of the menu. She made fantastic recommendations, and answered questions with great detail.
Through Open Table I made the reservation and requested outdoor seating, yet when we arrived the hostess took us to an inside table. We saw that outside tables were available and she made the change, I just wish she would have noticed my note on the reservation.
I will absolutely go to Gabi James again!
Thank you for your kind review! Please join us again soon!
Our server was more interested in outlining the details of the upcoming Sunday brunch than she was in listening to my dinner order. Three entrees were brought to the table and my dinner was not. She forgot to enter my dinner order.
Hi Ronka. We are sorry to hear that your grande was not ordered in a timely manner. We hope that you will giv us another shot to show you the service we pride ourselves on.
We love eating here! We have come many times but the last time we ate the tortilla, the tuna crudo, the citrus salad, and the oxtail (one of my favorite dishes on the planet). Also wine and beer and a fancy cocktail and we tasted a little whiskey - everything was wonderful. It's a beautiful restaurant with super friendly staff, owners, and fellow diners.
Thank you so much for your lovely words and for visiting us at Gabi James! We are so happy that you have become a regular and love what we are doing so much...that is the best compliment we could ask for. See you very son we hope! Cheers!
