great comfortable neighboorhood spot
I like almost everything about Gabriels. It's a wonderful place to sit and talk to friends. It's reasonably quiet. The food is so consistently wonderful from visit to visit you wonder how they do it. The service is friendly and professional. The bar makes great mixed drinks. I just wish the prices were lower so that I could visit more often.
Having been my first time here. I went based on the reviews from other patrons. I was very much pleased with everything. I will definitely be going back.
The staff was very accomodating even though our party arrived almost an hour early. The food was absolutely delicious; I would definitely go back for the tortellini dish. The only downside to the evening was when the bill arrived and we saw how expensive our meals had been. That being said, it’s difficult to find a good restaurant near the Lincoln Center that is cheaper so overall, we were very satisfied.
Was very nice to be greeted by Gabriel on arrival. We visited pre-theater. The menu, the food, the service left no room for complaint. Only reason it didn't give it 5 stars what that it was a very tight, but not unlike other NYC restaurants. For a 5 star rating, I do prefer to have enough space between tables so as to not hear the neighbors conversation. This was my first visit. Next time I will know to request a booth for a party of two. Would have been much more comfortable.
Always reliable. Always a pleasure.
I've been going to Gabriel's for many years and have never had a bad meal. Food is excellent and service is as well. Usually go before a concert at Lincoln Center and always get me out in plenty of time.
Food was great across the board. The service could be improved - waitress seemed annoyed.
Server was simply not attentive, did not introduce themselves, and a slightly offputting manner.
Great food and service. A must do if in the Columbus circle area
I have never been disappointed. Ravioli zucca is heavenly.
A bit pricey, but worth it. Great for special occasions.
Our New Year’s Eve dinner celebration was spectacular, romantic and delicious!!
We had a great pre theater dinner before Lincoln Center.
It was delicious, served by an excellent Tuscan waiter.
Frankly, it’s the best so far pre Lincoln Center theater that we have tried. ( best one of five!)
Outstanding and reasonably price food. Arugula salad had 2 huge slices of Parmesan cheese on the top drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Great location for Lincoln Center. Only slight criticism, waiter was very efficient, but he could have been more friendly.
Love Gabriel’s! Always very consistently perfectly prepared food with delicious choices- miss the wood burning grill! Ambiance is cozy and a quiet (thankfully) space. Service is impeccable. Somewhat pricey but worth it for special occasions.
Great food ... Branzino was terrific. Good wine... waiter was very helpful. Will definitely return.
Food remains fantastic. The owner must have been away on Dec 26, though, since the maitre’d, the waitress and another waiter spent the evening with their heads in their smart phones. We had to call to them three different times during the evening to get their attention since they weren’t watching the tables.
A shadow of the Gabriel’s of old. Menu and decor are tired and sorely in need of fresh energy and menu items. So disappointed as it held fond memories for us but now no more
Food was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed it. Very authentic Italian food with reasonable price.

one of our favorite Lincoln center area spots - convenience, warmth, service, food !!!
We dine at Gabriel's several times a year. The food is always great, and the service is friendly and competent. We recommend it highly.
Everything was wonderful except the food!! Which was so disappointing.. and so expensive for a dried out pork chop Milanese and a misconceived mushroom lasagna special, an oversauced gnocchi.. loved our waiter, the wine was delicious, lovely celebratory evening but hard to ignore mediocre cooking..
Our children came to visit us
Very cozy atmosphere with fabulous food. The Tuna Crudo is spectacular.
First time visit. We had a nice table in back of restaurant. A little tight, but turned out well for noise and privacy when the restaurant filled up. We went for pre-opera dinner. We both had fish. Salmon and branzino which had a crispy skin but gave off a bit of fishy smell on arrival. It tasted fine. We shared a salad and each had a dessert and a drink. I had a martini which was very big, but cost $20! With tip, Bill came to $200+ Portions are smaller for price point. $18 dollar salads are too expensive. Very nice ambiance and service. Would return.
Owner, Gabriel is grumpy. Food is OK , but pricey for the quality.
Location is not to far from Lincoln center.
I really enjoyed Gabriel's. Our waiter was a real pro. The ambiance is very nice - vibrant but not too loud. And the find was just excellent. Get location too!
To be in the action at Columbus Circle and right by Lincoln Center would make this place easy to just exist. They don't. The food is varied and all of it great. The wait staff? Our water, our dirty dishes, our dessert were all just done without asking--how wonderful! And, a pretty place at that where for once I could hear my college aged and high school daughters talk of their latest triumphs. I could actually hear them rather than just politely nodding. Where else can you go for such?
We enjoyed our dinner. The ambiance is great and the food is outstanding. I don't recall my waiter's name - but he was terrific!
I will return.
Overpriced, ordinary food
Very good food. A little on the pricey side, but they're super efficient and it's a perfect place to get a meal before a show. Our waiter was outstanding and helped make it a really enjoyable dinner.

Quiet enough to converse
Exceptionally good food
Waiter was fabulous!
I will be back!!
Questionable quality. Expensive appetizers and drinks. Rushed service
My favorite but never again for dinner. The noise was terrible and I couldn't talk to my guests. My favorite time is 8:30 to 9:00 when it is not so hectic
Always so enjoy going to Gabriel !!! A treat that never disappoints !!! Luciano our waiter has always been so fun - so helpful in choosing our dishes - and he can also recommend fabulous places to visit in Italy !!! And we love the restaurant’s decor and élégant ambiance —- let’s not forget the exquisite food ! Grazie Mille Gabriel !
FABULOUS FOOD....SEATES TOO CLOSE TO A VEY LOUD TABLE. ONLY COMPLAINT. SERVICE AND FOOD OUTSTANDING
The food was outstanding. Our server was not very personal or welcoming as opposed to the server who was assisting the table right next to us. Seemed disinterested and like we were more of a bother when we asked questions. Better engagement would have made for an experience that matched the food.
