We have had the pleasure of eating here a few times. We really enjoy the ambiance and the food is always very good. It was great that they have some vegetarian dishes under the "earth" section, and is why we enjoy coming here.
The servers were a little overwhelmed as are most places that don't seem to have the staff for the high demand that there currently is for dining.
We enjoyed the evening and the food.

Our family of 6 enjoyed Easter dinner at Gabrielle’s. We had drinks on the patio outside the hotel & enjoyed a wonderful meal in the elegant dining room. All starters & meals were excellent. We enjoyed the pork chop, the scallops were excellent & one of us even ordered off the lounge menu & had the club sandwich which was packed with flavor & meats. Service by our waiter & staff were excellent!

The restaurant and hotel in general are lovely. We had Easter brunch and the service was slightly slow, but the restaurant was very busy and they were very attentive given the crowd.
Food absolutely delicious ! And I do not think it is expensive for what you get.
The best top it off is an extra drink on the rooftop on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
We will be back !!

Brunch in the patio at Gabrielle is always an awesome atmosphere and experience, and the food & waitstaff are top notch. Recommend it for anyone - be they a local or a tourist. Get the Eggs Bennett with some French fries on the side and you will not be sorry!

Ambiance of both the Hotel Bennet and the restaurant were excellent. Service was excellent. Food was a mixed bag - the appetizers were very good, the duck was excellent, but the scallops were way too salty. Cocktails were ok. Perhaps the live music was a little too loud - making conversation a bit difficult.

We had cocktails in the lobby, dinner in the restaurant. What a wonderful experience! Starting with Daniel as the valet, throughout the evening we felt pampered and very much welcomed. All food and drinks were delicious, couldn’t recommend more highly!

The agnolotti and tuna starters were average. The duck confit and lamb were excellent. The dessert was disappointing

Service was excellent, starting from when we first arrived at the hotel. The hotel offers valet parking and someone inside the hotel escorted us to the hostess stand. Very nice!

The bar scene looked amazing. Would recommend. We will be back

Although delicious, the risotto dish was very small and was not priced accordingly. Otherwise, I would say the food was very good. Desserts were ok but not great.

The atmosphere and service was excellent.

Food was fairly good however waiter was weak. Terrible with suggesting foods, and very inattentive. Inordinate amount of time to even receive first cocktails and super slow with food service and visits to table. Gnocchi was mushy, worst I’ve ever had. Fish on grits and chops were excellent as was the tagliatelle.

Hotel Bennett is a beautiful hotel. Loved the staff and the aesthetics very much. Gabrielle just switched to their spring menu the night we went and neither myself or the other party was impressed. It wasn’t bad, just not very impressive and note worthy.

My eggs Bennet with beef medallions was excellent. The medallions were much bigger than I expected; tender very flavorful, cooked exactly as I requested.
My wife is allergic to gluten They did have gluten free bread but the bread was bigger than the chicken sandwich. A gluten free bun would have been better and absorbed the juices better.

Service was very attentive. We ate outside facing the park which was very relaxing, an excellent atmosphere.

Overall, an excellent experience. We would definitely return.
