Amazing!!

So delicious! We waited 1 hour to be seated, but it was worth the wait. Our dishes were amazing, as was our appetizers and drinks. It was very expensive, so we can't go as much as I'd like to, but it is my new favorite place for a special date night.

My son's enjoyed eating at Gabe's and took us there for dinner. Our four meals were great, the waitress serve the wine cold. When I asked why the wine was cold she told me they serve all reds at 55 degrees. Bottle seem colder then 55. I talked to the manager and he told me that was how they served... More

I had the seafood étouffée and my boyfriend had the catfish. The portions were well worth the price, and the bread is to die for. I had the pomegranate martini also and it was really fantastic. What I will say though is that the atmosphere wasn't as fancy or as romantic as I had hoped.

We had dinner here on Friday before driving to Bremen for a concert. Fortunately we arrived just as they opened at 5:00 because within 45 minutes the place was packed and they do not take reservations. We had fried green tomatoes and crab cakes for appetizers (both delish!!) and the seafood special also delish! Fresh warm bread,real butter delivered without... More

By far one of the very best restaurants in the West Georgia area! Best in Villa Rica for sure! Relatively expensive though, so if you're eating on a budget, you may want to hit this place at lunchtime instead. Or, takeout for dinner. Nice dining experience though. Acceptable date night location. :)

My husband and I took one of our Fiancial Advsors for lunch, and it took forever to get our food. It was so dark in this place that you could not see your plate, and the food was not fresh, and was not a Cajun Style, as it was supposed to be....very disappointed. Most days you find it packed, and... More

Gabe's Downtown is quite possibly my favorite restaurant. I live nearby and eat there at least once a month. The Filet Mignon is the best I have ever had. My girlfriend loves the Chicken Victoria. I had a taste of hers and I must say, I don't think anyone could make chicken taste as rich and flavorful as Gabe. Definitely... More

Came here via a Tripadvisor review as a surprise dinner for wife. Both of us were well pleased. The Pasta Bouillabaisse was the real winner about $26 but big enough for two. The cajun eggrolls were also a hit. The seafood etouffee was good and loaded with seafood...again large portions. The atmosphere was a bit understated for the prices. The... More

I could eat here every night and not get tired of the menu. I had a panko breaded chicken breast over crab, corn & prosciutto pasta. It was wonderful. Great flavors and the portions are huge. We had the coconut shrimp & the BBQ shrimp as starters and they were so good I could've had them as my meal. Don't... More
