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

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

Went here for our anniversary. Perfect choice. We arrived early so it was very quiet. Sat in the large front window and watched the rain. Excellent wine choice and our server new his stuff. I like they have small plates so you can try lots of different things if you prefer (I do). Started with the bruschetta. The bread was... More

Oct 14, 2014. First time in Eureka, saw the good reviews and decided to check it out. We were very happy with our decision. Attentive, friendly but quiet staff, good wine and good food. My son had the ravioli which he thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely recommend and would go back if I'm ever in Eureka again.

My husband and I come here occasionally...we have never been disappointed! I usually get the spaghetti and meatballs and my husband gets the raviolis. We recently went with my cousin and his friend, they had the veal and both said it was excellent. The salads are excellent as well. The desserts are dynamite! There is an upstairs area perfect for...

My wife and I had a lovely meal. Their house Zin is to die for. If your in Eureka make sure you drop in and say hi to Mishael, one of the 3 siblings that run the place. Its located in the "Old Town" of Eurika.
