I would recommend Gabrielle to all my friends! The food and service at Gabrielle are both excellent and it is one of our absolute favorite restaurants in New Orleans. Go, eat everything, then go back for more!

An outstanding meal in every way possible!! From the pre dinner cocktails to the fabulous desserts everything was exceptional. The service was fabulous, the food divine, and the ambiance friendly and low key. As we left the restaurant we were already planning to go back ASAP!!

Only been a couple times a while back. Took my daughter here before a comedy show. The server Victor is the most memorable part of the experience. Great conversationalist And just the right amount of brief visits to the table. From somebody in the customer service business I’d be proud to hire him.

Gabrielle's is consistently one of the best restaurants in New Orleans. I've never been disappointed, and often choose it for celebration dinners.

Perhaps the regular menu is better but the New Years Eve PreFix menu left much to be desired. The raw oysters with caviar and champagne shooter were highlight. The second course was very basic and small.
The main courses were the most disappointing. The lamb portion was good, although quite small. The prime rib was more of a steak. Overall, way overpriced for $75 a head.
I'm sad this was my first experience there but probably won't go back to see if it gets betters.

Food was decent but not worth the prices. $20 appetizer, $8 salad that wasn't included with the entrée. Portion size was OK. Service very good. Good happy hour specials.

Lively Wednesday night. The goat cheese salad is more olives and less lettuce but good. The special was whole trout with beurre blanc and spinach. It was too salty for my taste. A generous portion. Nice cocktail and wine selection.

This restaurant seems tired..... (it isn't that old is it?).She crab soup was great-out of four entrees ordered only one person enjoyed their food. Pork chop dish was convoluted -too many ingredients. Beet salad did not use fresh beets.....my fish dish was greasy-crab cake too bready. Didn't finish half of the entree.I expected much more from this restaurant since it was one of our favorites pre-Katrina.

This was our first visit to Gabrielle since we're visitors to NOLA, and we really enjoyed it! As advertised, the quail gumbo is absolutely delicious and the anise component to the andouille really adds a new dimension to the flavor. We also really liked the bbq shrimp pie and the traiteur fish was great. We capped off the meal with a refreshing homemade peppermint ice cream and the Esplanade & Mystery Street cocktail was light and tasty. Service was warm and engaging and we'd happily recommend!

She crab soup and the duck soup starters were the best. Double pork chop was good but on dry side. The fish dish from the menu was a skimpy size filet that decreased value of overall food experience. Wine and cocktails were very good. Our lady hostess and waitress were very professional and helpful. The male waiter was not.

Our waiter, Patty, provided great suggestions on food and drink selection. We had the night's appetizer special, which was a oyster, artichoke bake. It was very tasty. My wife had the fish of the day, which was a drum that was sitting on top of crabcake. I had the duck, which was very flavorful. We closed the meal out with apple upside-down bread pudding. This was a great meal. I will definitely come again.

Our server, Katherine, was great-/friendly,accommodating, and professional. We thought the crab bisque was too thin, and that it didn’t have enough crab. The tomatoes in the tomato salad were cold and therefore tasteless. If not for those two factors we would give the food and the value higher ratings

Rediscovered this gem. I hadn't been before, but my wife had in their earlier incarnation. Everything was fabulous. The food was great. The only thing we might comment on was to get the specials to the diners before they order drinks as it may change the drink order. Like everywhere in New Orleans, parking was a little challenge, but not to be a problem. Our server was prompt and very conscientious. Definitely a 'go-back' place.
