Gabrielle Restaurant New Orleans
As usual, an excellent meal. The only ”disappointment” was the absence of rabbit on the dinner menu. Specifically, the ponce appetizer and the rabbit entree weren't available. Our drinks were well made and the bottle of wine was priced fairly and was a good pairing.
Gabrielle is the most enjoyable restaurant that I have visited in New Orleans. The food was outstanding.
The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The ambiance was cozy and welcoming. Our party had Quail gumbo and the barbeque shrimp pie for appetizers. Our entrees were traiteur fish and veal chop. Dessert was the signature peppermint patti. Everything was done to perfection. When you're in New Orleans, this is a restaurant not to be missed.
I was in New Orleans for work and found Gabrielle on Open Table and decided to give it a try. What a lovely find! Small, but well-appointed, a brief menu exquisitely executed, clearly a place for locals and not tourists, Gabrielle Restaurant was all I could ask for. I enjoyed the BBQ Shrimp Pie, Slow Roasted Duck, and Lemon Chess Pie. Everything was delicious, a feast for the eyes and the mouth. I will absolutely come back next time I am in New Orleans.
Wonderful food, creatively prepared. Very friendly, warm ambiance.
We had a great time with friends! The service was so good and Gabrielle was so accommodating when we arrived early and made us feel very welcome!! Even the nice security gentleman at the door assisting with parking was a delight!
The “special drinks” were delicious as was the fabulous soft shelled crab special.
We always tell friends how much we like this restaurant and recommend that they go there.
Delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is great and and it is a lovely restaurant.
We live in New Orleans and consider ourselves Foodies. Gabrielle is a great experience for locals and visitors alike.
We highly recommend it to anyone.
Greg - thank you for making a celebration night even more special; the food tasted as good as it looked. Kathryn couldn’t have been more gracious and personable with her service (the bread pudding was a spot-on suggestion). We look forward to returning soon.
Had the soft shell special and it was absolutely memorable, my friend had the tenderloin. Excellent!!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Really outstanding!
The food was fabulous and satisfying, delish!
It’s damn near perfect. Feels good in there. Very nice folks. Food excellent. Not too expensive.
Went there for our first time, for the wife's birthday and the staff acknowledged it and wished her happy birthday. Service was excellent (knowledge and attentive). Waiter made recommendations that turned out to be good choices. Food was excellent. Flounder with shrimp was great but slow cooked duck was excellent. We will go back and we strongly recommend Gabrielle to everyone!
Excellent service and the food was over the top.
We enjoyed the food, service and environment. All worth the trip!
Average meal. the specialty of house, the duck, was dry. The scallop and seafood entree were good. Service was harried. Prices a bit high for quality of food and service.
This was our second time at Gabrielle Restaurant, but our first time with friends. The service was great, and the food and drinks were wonderful. Everyone inside was engaging. Special acknowledgement goes to the Security Officer who was very attentive and courteous.
Absolutely delicious! Wonderful fresh fish and vegetables. Yummy deserts. Will be back.
Incredible food and service!! Great for hearing impaired.
Geeat meal!! tried to do the Culinary menu but not enough time!! Went for Restaurant week and it was great!! RICK WAS OUR SERVER AND HE WAS THE BEST!! If you make reservations , ask for him, he is a seasoned pro!! The scallop appetizer was incredible!! duck bacon wrapped, served over a bed of grits topped with a tomato/ ginger compote. AWSOME!! was a bit hesitant with the location but no problem!! no problem parking!! Glad to see Mary and greg back!!
This chef definitely knows what he's cooking. Local foods and delicious!
The service here is excellent. The food is wonderful! The location isn't bad.
Had one of the best soft shell crabs I've had in some time. Perfectly fried and so fat.
OMG, this place was fantastic. Food was out of this world. Will be going at least once a month.
Why did I wait so long to go?
It will be one of my go to restaurants in the future
We dined at Gabrielle for the first time last weekend and were extremely pleased.
From service. to menu choices as well as the actual food I have no complaints and believe 5 stars says it all.
We love Gabrielle! Every time we go, we can’t wait to get back there.
We made it in on the last Friday night in August to try the soft shell crab on the Coolinary menu. It was so worth it! I started with the scallop which I’d had during duck fest, and my date had been thinking about the meatballs since they were first introduced. We shared the shrimp salad and enjoyed the heck out of our soft shell crab entrees. Everything was so good and the service is friendly and professional.
As usual, we are already talking about when we can go back!
The food was delicious. The Coolinary menu was one of the best I've seen.
My group did not have a single complaint, and we left fat and happy. Great food and service. Top notch! Will be back for sure.
Wonder meal, great service and fun time with good friends!
We loved our authentic experience at Gabrielle! The service, food, ambience, and quality were all great. We went for Coolinary and will definitely be back with out of town guests. We had no trouble finding street parking. This place is an adorable neighborhood gem!
Small restaurant with a big bang. Consistently good food and service. You really can't go wrong.
We choose Gabrielle because of the Coolinary menu. All 6 of us were very happy with what we chose. Coolinary prices made us try the restaurant, but we will be back.
The restaurant was lively and welcoming. We had 4 people and were able to try 3 different appetizers, 4 entrees and 2 desserts. They were all delicious! We also tried a few cocktails and 2 different wines. The wine list had a good spread of prices. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. I would return and recommend it to friends!
Food was amazing. Service was great as well. Would definitely suggest this place for a special occasion.
The food is outstanding, we wanted every single thing on the menu and we left wishing we could return immediately to try all of the things we didn't get to try this time. One of the best restaurants in the city!
We went to Gabrielle’s to celebrate our Anniversary. Our table was decorated with confetti, a nice touch. We ate delicious soft shell crabs and enjoyed the sides that came with the entree. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived at 5:45pm,for our reservation,but soon got busy. The noise level was so high that I took my hearing aids out,
during dinner. For that reason alone we probably won’t be back soon.
Gave this place a try for COOLinary and generally enjoyed it. Service was a little slow - from getting seated to ordering drinks but can be forgiven since it's a slow month and I doubt they're at full capacity. I had the duck blind scallop which was really good although I didn't care for the grits. My girlfriend had the crimson tide watermelon salad which was quite pleasant and the fried duck/chicken wings contrasted nicely with the cool watermelon. I had the nova scotia jambalaya for my main entree which was again pretty good - the lobster and shrimp were great but there was a certain spice to it I couldn't place and didn't care for. Also not sure why okra was in it. My girlfriend had the fish and the crabcake/sauce it came with were phenomenal. Finally for dessert I had the shoot for the moon pie and bourbon milk punch but it looks like they ran out of moon pies and it came with a mediocre chocolate chip cookie. The punch was pretty good and hid the bourbon well. My girlfriend did the apple upside down bread pudding and that was phenomenal - a really great take on a classic american dessert. We had the JeniSu and Marie's Favorite cocktails which were very good. Overall solid location and a lot of the main menu looks great - definitely some gems and even the lesser dishes are still pretty good. I'll be sure to visit again (and hopefully when someone else picks up the bill).
We wanted to try a restaurant we had not eaten at before. Took advantage of Coolinary week. The wait staff and Chef/Owner were friendly and accommodating!! Food was delicious and will definitely go back!!!
