Another Gem in Eureka

There's not many places I'll eat when I'm in Eureka but this is one of them. With decent service and excellent food I definitely recommend it. Preferably dinner more so than lunch.

This place was recommended by the limo driver from our hotel - as the best Italian food in Eureka, so we tried it. I was with my 13 year old son. We were placed at a table upstairs, way in the back - I felt tucked into a corner. There was a hole in the ceiling, the paint on the... More

Judging from other reviews Gabriel's is usually a very good restaurant, but this time, for me, it was the Dinner From Hell. First the service. We were seated in the upper dining room with about eight tables full of diners, yet there was only one waiter! The waiter, who did try very hard to please everyone, was overwhelmed. He said... More

We went to Gabriel's because I was tired, hungry, and cranky, and didn't want to drive all over Old Town. It looked good to my wife, but even the best can make a mistake. The food was OK -- nothing special, but not actually bad. The real turnoff was the waiter, who was a little too casual to be a... More

In early November we went to Gabriel's for at least the fifty-eth time in 8 years. It used to be our favorite in Eureka, as we live an hour out of town. Maisch did not even welcome us and we had to wait to be seated in an almost empty restaurant. He didn't ask us if we wanted anything from... More

We got there exactly at 11:30 when they open and the waitress was still vacuuming the carpets and made eye contact with us, but continued to vacuum until one of the owners told her to stop. We were the only customers in the place and she walked right by us, but did not acknowledge us. We were seated by the... More

My husband, Geary and I are married about 33 years. We took many an anniversary road trips back when we were just starting out and didn't have much money. One of our usual stops would be in Eureka. We had always celebrated our anniversary dinner at Tomaso's restaurant in downtown Eureka. It seems as one gets older and time passes,... More

We had dinner here on the recommendation of a friend & weren't disappointed. I had 2 appetisers - a scallop one & a clam one, my partner had seafood pasta. The food was delicious. We then shared flourless chocolate cake for dessert - yum. $85 with a tip was good value for the quality of the meal. We were seated... More

When in the mood for a less hurried lunch, Gabriel's has become our choice. The food and service are consistently good.
