    We had an excellent experience at Gabi . The food was delicious. Their frites are so good! Our server was gracious and very efficient. We appreciated the complimentary glasses of champagne, as we were celebrating our anniversary. We have always enjoyed our visits to Gabi.

    Service/staff wonderful. Escargot, cheese was wonderful. We both had French onion soup. We both hardly ate much of it. Too salty. Only complain is that server didn’t ask what we both didn’t eat our soup

    The menu isn't very good for vegetarians is my one complaint. But I ordered mussels and it came with a MOUND of fries which was great. Drinks were excellent, but I wasn't too excited about the menu offerings. Wait staff was excellent. Ambiance was nice. Bathroom was really clean. I had a good experience overall, but the menu isn't my cup of tea so I probably won't be returning unless it's for drinks and a snack.

    Splendid classic French bistro fare and warm, attentive service (hats off to Clara!) and PERFECT, contemporary and classic French music. I started with the Gabi Provencal salad, then perfectly prepared La Belle Farms duck breast and a strawberry Frasier for dessert accompanied by a glass of La vie en Rose (negrette grapes, copper color). A plus! I will be back!

    Great brunch. We were treated well by staff from the time we entered, until leaving. Duck Confit scrapple, Eggs Benedict and a fantastic cocktail and wine list. Did I mention the scrapple? A great start to a great day. We are looking forward to trying dinner. Andy G

    Overall very good. Customer service was excellent, everyone was authentically friendly and attentive. The food was good; the onion soup was a bit rich for me but still delicious and the steak was good, although a bit bland. "Pile of french fries" was indeed a huge pile of fries and were very good

    This was my fifth visit to Gabi and my husband's fourth. We have never been disappointed. The service is wonderful, and my waiter remembered me from our last visit. We had asked for outside seating, but it looked like rain, and they kindly switched us to inside seating and offered us a choice of spots. Absolutely outstanding items on the menu were the Vichyssoise, which was on special and the best I ever had, the Croque Madame with perfectly cooked pomme frites and the Gabi pate. The house white wine was a delicious chardonnay and a bargain at $8 a glass. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and so did the French family in the banquette next to us!

    Interesting menu options and quality wine choices by the glass. Attentive but not obtrusive service. Good atmosphere for interior dining, while outdoor dining on North Broad Street would have no attraction to my senses of a quality experience.

    The service and their willingness to accommodate us given we were half an hour late for our reservation (we did call) was wonderful. We really appreciated that. The food was OK. The mussels were tasty, if a bit small, but the fries were not up to French "frites" standards. Not crispy which of course is the defining characteristic of frites (and that they're thin cut). My husband had the steak frites and felt the steak was OK flavor-wise but a bit tough and also had the same opinion of the fries. We would go again if we're in the area (went to a show at the Met), maybe try something else on the menu, but wouldn't go out of our way to go back.

    Service and food were good. The salads were large and fresh, and the escargot were great as usual. Three of us had the duck which was great, and one of us had the vegetable tart which was very good. The prices are very reasonable. After the four of us finished our dinners we were engrossed in conversation. I told our server to tell us when she wanted us to leave, and she responded that as long as there was another occupied table we were welcome to stay which we appreciated.

    TROUT! I had it the first time that I ate there. TROUT! My friend had it last night and said several times that it was the best TROUT! that he has ever had. We are both in our late 70s and early 80s and we have eaten a lot of trout and I agree with him. This is the best trout that we've ever eaten. The service was timely and excellent. We all wished that the space was a bit more intimate but we are in a pandemic era and exceptions need to be made. It needed more diners to fill the space and eliminate the empty feeling. But please do try the TROUT! It's the best that I've ever eaten. We will return.

    Gabo was a lovely bistro style restaurant. Chris was our awesome server who made us feel right at home. I asked for my steak to be "Pittsburgh" style and the staff got it right! Thanks so much for a nice meal. Just one quick suggestion: cloth napkins. Paper napkins don't give off the same vibe. Thanks again for a lovely evening. The next time we're in Philadelphia, we shall return.
