A neighborhood favorite! We keep coming back for so many reasons. First, the food. So many great menu items to choose from, it's always a difficult choice! Second, the people that work there. Anthony, the owner and chef spent a lot of time talking with us. Craig, the bartender is the best! We really enjoyed sitting at the bar and talked about different drinks, etc. The ambiance is always incredible and we will continue to go back!

We tried Gabriella's during restaurant week. We were seated promptly. The service was amazing. Waters were always filled and our server was incredibly attentive as were all the other staff. This is the best service I have received in a long time!
The food was delicious. My Wellington was served exactly as I ordered it - which was greatly appreciated.
The only downside was the noise level in the restaurant. You could not even hear the person across the table. When I go again, I will request outdoor dining to minimize the noise factor so I can enjoy my dinner and the company with whom I am sharing it.

The food and ambiance was fantastic. The service was lacking for sure, took way too long for our first set of drinks, then we think our wine order got forgotten, and the kitchen seemed really slow; the service was just missed a bit.

Tried this place for Restaurant Week and it wasn't bad but it wasn't good ~ just the middle of the road place. Served soggy mixed with crunchy potato chips with a dip to start. Took a long time to get drinks other than water. Shrimp cocktail was something you would get at a buffet type restaurant - small shrimp and not very tasty. Beef wellington was good but we both burned our mouths on the beef. Veggies were something my mom would serve so not impressed. Lastly the creme brulee was okay again, nothing to come back for and ramakin was super hot to the touch brought to the table. Their key lime tart was a disappointment as well. Servers all seemed either new to the profession or just not very attentive but they were nice. All in all we walked away saying 'Glad we tried it, won't be back.'

Went for a business lunch. The service was prompt, the food was very good and certainly superior to nearby restaurants.

The restaurant was chosen because the facility enabled us to have a private conversation and the noise level was very low.

The food choices, presentation and quality were very good.

I have found a new favorite restaurant for business and social occasions.

Gabriella’s provided the perfect dining experience. Service was flawless, and every dish served was perfect. The Burrata with tomato ketchup was delicious. The beet salad with shrimp and the orecchiette pasta dish with shrimp were both wonderful. The peach galette was a delightful way to complete our meal. Dining here is always a pleasure.

The food was terrific and I would go back again but not for a special or romantic evening. Though our waitress was kind and pleasant, she and the bartender chatted the whole time answering each other across the empty restaurant as though there were no guests. Once she answered him from our table at the same time as serving our dessert. He was loud and un oblivious that there were guests and she had a job to do. It was annoying and for an empty restaurant where we hoped to have a romantic evening celebrating our 35th Anniversary, it was quite noisy and lacked the quiet privacy we would have liked.

Four of us had lunch. Service was horrible. Very slow. The salads we ordered with dressing on the side came tossed in vinaigrette. We pointed it out to the waitress who insisted there was not any dressing on the salad.
(BTW, The menu says the salad comes with a honey balsamic dressing).
She was extremely rude when I pointed out the dressing and reluctantly admitted “oh, yes, we toss it with a vinaigrette, but there is no dressing.”
I stated that I did not want the salad and would look at the menu and maybe order something else. She left the table and did not come back for an extended time. I then told her I didn’t want anything else. She said “well, I already told them to re-make your salad.” I told her I did not want the salad. She was visibly annoyed.
My friends finished their lunch. We received the bill, and yes, they charged me for the salad. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We arrived at 5 and shared the meatball appetizer from the happy hour menu. They were delicious. Then we had salmon which was beautifully prepared with a citrus glaze. Chef Anthony is so good at combining flavors that compliment and delight. Gabriella's is definitely one of our favorite restaurants.

An excellent meal! Our server was very friendly, but because they were short on help, the service was a little slower than desired. The cocktail and wine menu had a wide variety to choose from. Their entrees are unique and all looked delicious. They do have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options as well. We had the grilled sage chicken and the salmon, both excellent! The food was very hot and the meat cooked perfectly. The dishes were good portions as well. Overall, a great experience, and I would definitely go back!

We live in the neighborhood and finally tried this place last night. So glad we did! The food was excellent. We had the burrata and crostini appetizer and short rib sliders. My husband had the short rib entrée and I enjoyed a bowl of their French onion soup and shrimp cocktail. The praline crème brûlée was a very tasty end to our meal. Everything was delicious and we received great service from Gabby. We will definitely return.
