    The fish and shrimp tacos are always a favorite or ours, as well as the meatball and ahi tuna tostada. We enjoy their signature cocktails as well. Great restaurant to try many new flavors and textures in food.

    Gabriela’s is consistently offering creative dishes in a delightful setting. We go there often for dinner and recently went there for brunch. We are hoping they will continue to add new dishes to their offerings, especially for brunch.

    Great food and service. We must have eaten almost half of the menu. Are favorites were the Soup of the Day, a Mexican style Chicken Soup that the Sous Chef created. I had the Corn Riblets and also recommend the Chile Infused Sauteed Shrimp. I also had the Chef's steak, cooked perfectly, and my wife had the Ahi Tostada, which I tried and loved, and I don't like raw fish. Lastly, their Key Lime Pie is one of the best that I have ever had, with a good balance of sweet in the Graham Cracker Crust, combined with just the right amount of tart in the Key Lime portion of the pie. I had absolutely NO negative experience with this restaurant, and it makes for a great evening getaway. Go early, and get a reservation in advance, as this is a smaller venue, for it's popularity.

    We really enjoyed the fusion of the menu bridging Spain and Mexico culture cuisine. The selected shared plates(albóndigas, papas bravas, grilled corn, and guacamole and salsa chips) were delicious leaving room for the pie de limón as the finale. We were not disappointed by Meghan’s recommendation! We’ll be back!

    We have been to Gabriella’s before it was reservation only. However, when we arrived at the location, we were told it was reservation only and could sit upstairs and get a different menu. We came specifically for the meatballs and there were not on the upstairs menu, so we left. O my way home, I went online and made a reservation through open table, for a table in the next :15 minute time slot. I’m glad to have gotten a reservation, but my problem was with the terrible customer service at the time we arrived at 7:00pm. After I said we didn’t have a reservation, I should have been told that I was able to go online and see if there were any openings OR she could have looked in her system and seen that within the next :15 minutes, tables were open and offered me one. Had I not looked online myself for a reservation, after I was driving home, you would have lost that business for the night and had an empty table. The food was amazing and we will be back, even though there was a small hiccup that could have been avoided from the beginning.

    Nice table near window with nice view of bay. Had my daughter, son in law and grandson with my wife and I. Most tapas were very good, ceviche was fishy and somewhat dry, spread out over plate. We enjoyed it but the atmosphere was somewhat sterile. Very odd arrangement of upstairs bar/cold tapas bar. Restaurant was fairly full, only 2 couples upstairs. Hope warmer weather will allow it to be better utilized. We want this place to be successful.

    Gabriela’s just keeps getting better. They have the best view of the water in town now that the front area has opened, the dishes are always changing and are inventive, and the wine list is reasonably priced. We tried the steak for the first time last night and it was cooked and flavored perfectly.

    The food was entirely too spicy! I love hot snd spicy food snd this was not edible. There was so much seasoning that it overpowered the Goff snd you couldn’t taste it. Fish tacos are wonderful

    Food, staff and atmosphere were excellent. For a party of five, all dishes were not served at the same time. There was approximately a 10-15 minute wait from the time the 1st dish was brought out until the last dish. Personally, I prefer all patrons be served at the same time.

    Everything was wonderful! We enjoyed sharing each of the items we ordered. The corn ribs are very creative w a great sauce. Ahi tuna/ watermelon salad…amazing! Daily special was fried black drum, delicious but we’d have liked a bit more fish, there were only a few fish nuggets. They were delicious, but for the price could serve a few more bites. The spectacular flaming vanilla/ cinnamon coffee at the end was the perfect finale! We’ll definitely be back!
