Awesome food, juicy steak. Tasty desserts. Look forward to my next visit. Would like to see the overhead lighting fixed and the boarded window re-glassed so both members of the table can see outside.
I ate here shortly after the opening in January 2019 and loved it. My return visit was highly disappointing. They got our orders wrong, we waited over an hour for our food, we had to pour our own water(we ate outside). The server offered us a free glass of wine for the issues and then proceeded to charge us for it. Save your money and go somewhere else.
We had a great experience on the outdoor patio. The food was fabulous. The live music was such a wonderful, unexpected treat.
Outstanding service. Excellent food, great location. Strongly recommend.
Joe our server was great and the food outstanding
Very decent meal with excellent service by Camille. Pleased overall.
Best dining experience we have had during the Covid-19 atmosphere. Great food, service, cleanliness and table spacing. Would love to go back soon. They really did an incredible job.
Appetizer was delicious. Main entree was very very salty.
Wonderful service and delicious food!
This is one of the best restaurants in Charleston. Wonderful service, amazing food and beautiful. Well done.
Excellent service. Tremendous adherence to COVID issues. Felt very safe.
Limited menu and despite going on Sunday they did not offer brunch options, which is a disappointment for being in Charleston as we were looking forward to brunch options. We were seated about 45 minutes past our reservation time, perhaps because of social distancing, which is understandable. The valet team was not friendly upon arrival/departure and acted like it was a hassle for them to valet my car. The servers were very nice and apologetic and the manager came over to chat.
The food was Amazing and our waitress was on top of her game making sure everything was just perfect! I will definitely make a reservation when I return back to Charleston!! The restaurant itself was decorated just beautiful and hostess was very accommodating on changing our reservation for 30 minutes later!
Great as always! The staff were fantastic and food is on point!
Perfection! My family and I had a wonderful experience. The service and good were perfect. The highlights were the Caesar salad, crab cakes, the shrimp and girts. Everything we ordered was wonderful and the service could not have been any better. This was a great choice for our first meal out since stay at home orders were lifted. We will eat here again and recommend it to friends looking for an exceptional experience.
Best date night ever!!!
The food was ok... My dessert was favorite... ohh and the chef gave us a sample of something he or she is thinking about adding to the menu..it was a cold cucumber like soup which we my husband and I give a double thumbs up too.
Next time we want to try eating outside. I'm a native and will be returning.Hope this helps...
This is my second time having lunch at Gabrielle my first experience was not good my main complain is the food at that time the hotel Had just opened so I thought I would give it another chance for a little while later which was yesterday I ordered the hamburger I was extremely disappointed a bun with seeds dried who put coleslaw on a hamburger ?the meat was terrible way over cooked I did not even eat half of it that is after I ordered a Bellini that I had to send back who makes a Bellini that tasted sour and extremely thick and cloudy that does not seem right so I sent it back and had a glass of rose my daughter ordered the eggs Bennett that was a disaster too we did not send our food back but her steak was basically raw and she ordered it medium on the well side anyway I will not be returning I live in Mount Pleasant and love going to brunch and lunches but I will not be returning until the menu is changed on the other hand on OpenTable when I made the reservation it showed a brunch menu where it shows that you could make your own omelette when I got to the restaurant the only eggs were the eggs Bennett which is a version ofEggs Benedict the staff was very pleasant however , the check came and it was painful to spend that kind of money for a meal that was not enjoyable.

Terrible service at restaurant.
Under cooked food for one dish.
Burnt and overcooked Tenderloin.
Waiter was non existent.
Champagne bar was excellent
Restaurant was very disappointing.
This was our first time at Gabrielle's, and it was for my birthday. Before dinner we enjoyed champagne at Camellias. The wine, the crab cake appetizer and the service was excellent. At dinner we started with the the fish frites (ok) and the Beets Panzanella (excellent). Our entrees were the local grouper and the grilled beef tenderloin. My date loved the braised field peas under the grouper, and I thought the beef was delicious. Next time, we want to try the spring pea gnocchi!
The hotel is amazing so check out the roof top bar. We enjoyed coffee, chocolates, and croissants at La Patisserie the next morning. The food was delicious and the service there was very professional. We recommend Gabrielle's, Camellias, and La Patisserie! Enjoy.
So yummy! Amazing brunch spot.
Excellent restaurant at the Hotel Bennett. The food and presentation was lovely. The standout do the evening was the service. Our server was truly excellent and made the evening quite enjoyable. Will definitely return.
My husband and I arrived at Gabrielle on a rainy, soggy Thursday for our 1 pm reservation, but we had misgauged our time and got there at 11:30. We were greeted by a doorman taking our umbrella and swathing it in its own plastic "raincoat." We were the first diners to arrive at Gabrielle, and had absolutely outstanding service from every single staff member we encountered. We "rewarded" ourselves with a bloody Mary, which was absolutely delicious and almost made us forget the rain. Our server, Suleman, was very attentive without being intrusive. My husband enjoyed a flavorful seafood stew with piping hot French fries. My muffuletta was piled high with appropriate Capocollo, Prosciutto, Swiss, Provolone, Mortadella, Olive Salad, on a delicious toasty bread. It was almost more than a mouthful, but I soldiered through, before crying "uncle" and deciding I needed to take home the second half of the sandwich for a later snack. The only (very slight) downside was there was not enough olive salad to balance the meat and cheese. It was an elegant sandwich lunch on a very inelegant day - so very worth it! We look forward to returning to Gabrielle.
For such a great hotel this restaurant was Quite Disappointing. Hotel completely wrong by recommending comparable to Hall's.
Enjoyed our visit to Gabrielles for brunch. Service was excellent, staff was friendly and attentive. Manager even sent over a complimentary dessert for my husband’s birthday. We enjoyed the entire experience!
The food was great and the staff was very kind and attentive.
A lovely atmosphere with delicious food for a ladies leisurely luncheon and fun visit.
Superb service !!
The hotel is amazing. The dining room was nice also. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about menu and very professional. Our only complaint was the service was extremely slow.
Worst. Service. Ever. February 15th, 7:30pm. All three couples assigned the same server had the same experience. Table to our right? Wrong entree and her husband finished his dinner before her food arrived...in a paper bag.
Table to our left? Didn't receive any of their ala carte sides and an incorrect drink. And at our table? Both cocktails were wrong. We got as far as appetizers and soup/salad and a different server took away our menus. We took that as a sign and gave up. Upon complaining to the management, we got a half-hearted apology and an offer to comp our "meal", which I refused. They clearly need a training program suitable to achieve the luxury experience to which they aspire. At present, however, I would look elsewhere. There are too many wonderful restaurants in the Holy City to excuse Gabrielle's indifference.
I will say that both my wife and I love the Bennett and also really enjoyed the food (food was excellent). BUT (yes there is a but) we have had 2 instances where the service has been less than stellar. This time it seemed to be a lack of coordination between the kitchen and the wait staff. We ordered drinks appetizers and entrees all together. Our drinks came and our appetizers, we then waited and waited for our entrees. The waiter came up and asked us if we wanted desert (we hadn’t had our entrees at that point). Our entrees came without the veggies we ordered as sides. Those didn’t come until after we had finished our meats (why bring them at that point). They did comp the sides but it really didn’t help. It looked like all of the folks dinning in the same area as us had issues that were similar. This restaurant has a lot of promise but 1 year in they can’t seem to deal with a semi busy night well...
Gabrielle is an elegant restaurant that has a menu to match. The food is rich and richly presented. I had the duck and my wife had scallops. The entrees are plentiful. You could easily split a salad and we did split the truffle dessert. Service seemed a little disorganized but it was still good. I was disappointed that the dress code was not observed.
Took us an hour to get our table for a 8:30 reservation. Food was descent very over priced. Fire alarm went off in the middle of meal. Was told the meal was free and not to come back. Then two days later they called and asked for a payment when I was told that we didn’t have to pay.
Outstanding food with an elegant ambiance. It made the Valentines dinner special.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day and had a wonderful meal with excellent service! Beautiful space and a fun evening.
We had a delightful dinner with friends at Gabrielles’ restaurant recently. Decor is breathtakingly, food and service were outstanding and best of all, it was quiet enough to enjoy conversation with friends. They really have it all together there and I can’t wait to go back.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambience at Gabrielle at Hotel Bennett.
It was a wonderful experience for me and my two daughters spending some time
together in Charleston. The food was fabulous! All chocolate lovers should try the chocolate truffle with grand marnier sauce. We ate it again before we left at the Champagne bar! Also recommend the scallops entree. The service was spectacular and wines were also excellent.
A great experience from the beginning: This is a gorgeous, elegant new hotel on King Street. We didn't dress up enough for the beauty of this hotel and restaurant--perfect for an elegant night on the town or a special occasion. We were in Charleston at a light time of year and so the restaurant was quiet, not noisy in the least, and ample time to chat with our helpful server, Daniel, and the assistant (whose name I can't recall) who is a senior at College of Charleston majoring in hospitality (and who will do well in that work). Food was superb. My wife had the oyster starter (I'm not an oyster eater and so CHS is a paradise for her); I enjoyed the lamb rillette, a real treat. We both ordered the signature flounder dish served over au gratin vegetables. It was excellent. Overall, it was a very good experience and one we highly recommend.
Good food, great surroundings and attentive service made this Sunday brunch a good capper too a nice weekend in Charleston. The room itself is airy and welcoming. Food was unique and delicious. Make sure you have the beignets to start.
