    We had an outstanding experience at Gabriel’s. The staff and owner could not have been more welcoming. I was on a brief family trip to Manhattan and our hotel on the same block recommend Gabriel’s and it was absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful meal, a delightful experience and can’t wait to go back. A true gem of a restaurant.

    Food was very delicious! It was my mother and i’s first time trying. We were very confused though as to who was our server, so we did not know who to ask when we were ready to pay, if we needed refills, etc.

    We booked Gabriel’s for a late dessert and after dinner drinks to celebrate a birthday. The staff was excellent and even added a birthday candle to the dessert for our guest. I spoke to them earlier in the evening and they did everything possible to make us feel welcome. The dessert’s are all wonderful and we had a great time. They exceeded out expectations! Thank you for a great time.

    I've been going to Gabriel's for many years. I cannot say it is the best restaurant in New York, but I can say absolutely - It is my FAVORITE restaurant in the city. Gabriel has been there every night, now his son is there as well. The result - a level of excellence in every aspect of the dining experience that is unmatched and consistently superlative. It's not inexpensive, but if I wanted to take someone out for a great dinner, Gabriel's will always be my first choice.

    This is a very good place. Service is excellent. The owner was there, and it’s very important for a restaurant. Food was delicious and excellent wine list. It’s charming place and have a beautiful and big bar. We had a really amazing arugula salad , and the best cacio e pepe, we ever had, the real one.

    There is no restaurant that welcomes their guests more warmly than Gabriel’s. The room is so beautiful, and every bite is superb, but it’s the people and how much they care about their guests that makes Gabriel’s in a class by itself. The ambiance and service are both quietly elegant but never stuffy. Fantastic wine list. Gorgeous cuisine that is just delicious every single time. New York is a better city because of Gabriel, his incredible team, and the absolute delight that is Gabriel’s.
