I've been coming to Gabriel's since it opened more than 20 years ago, and it remains my favorite restaraunt in the Lincoln Center and Upper West Side neighborhoods despite the formidable competition that's recently arrived there. It is a spacious, welcoming, sophisiticated and handsome space, whether you sit at the bar, a booth or a table. Gabriel is the consummate host, and he has maintained the high standards of the menu and the service. There is a great selection of Italian food and it is delicious. I also love the atmostphere of the restaurant. It manages to be classy and comfortable. I still remember my first meal there, it was that good, and I look forward to many more in the years to come.

We've been coming here for so many years and It has never let down with amazing food, incredible service, and the frequent celebrity sighting. Gabriel's is a favorite to the most successful people in the world for good reason. Hands down the best italian in NYC- try the lamb chops.

I go to Gabriel's a dozen times a year. Always a wonderful meal with friendly, attentive service and great food. I always see clebrity types: last night was Dick cavett and Robert Iger. Often see Mayor Bloomberg, Ted Forstman, Warren Buffet, Herbert Allen. Loyd Blankfein. So, I feel great: those guys can dine anywhere they want and can afford anywhere. Yet, they're dining "with me" at Gabe's: I just love that those who can go anywhere choose my favorite!
good food, dishonest waiters
By mjohn1251 on 6/20/2011
I was really feeling proud of myself for choosing this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner: good service, good food (my mushroom ravioli was terrific), good ambience (quiet). But then the waiter ruined it by trying to stiff me for an extra drink that I didn't order (I trusted him by not looking at the bill, but when he returned the tally I discovered he had scratched out the total for the drinks and added an extra drink). Big deal? No. But is kind of ruined my good feeling. I detest dishonesty. I probably wouldn't return.

Overpriced mediocre food and indifferent, haughty staff. Prices are over the top for the quality. Waitstaff treat guests as an inconvenience. The sommelier was uniformed on quality wine and when questioned became defensive. So many other better Italian restaurants in the area. The only reason they are still in business is because they are so close to Time Warner Center.
Most Enjoyable -- I was surprised

Suggest the Tuna .... prepared wonderfully and a substantial portion. Service crisp and clean. Had a late dinner mid week and that was wonderful.. no crowds and quiet atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Convenient to Time-Warner.

It is convenient for meeting clients or friends around Time-Warner or Columbus Circle. However, each time I am disappointed with either the food, service, or both. I wish it were worth the price of the entrees.
Very good food

I've always enjoyed eating here and feel it's a consistently good neighborhood place.
