Reliable Mexican

Nice big servings, tasty food and really nice margaritas! Went with a friend and we both really enjoyed our food and our time. It has a nice atmosphere, but maybe feels like you are paying just a little bit too much.

Been here many, many times and usually like it. Guacomole tasted like it was made hours ago. The organic chicken (supposedly a specialty, at $26.00) was dry and tastless. Gabrielas seems tired to me and at over $100.00 for two people, it should be better. New Yorkers usually don't repeat visit at that price point where the food is so... More

We stopped here for dinner after three hours of voice lessons for us. The speciality drinks were very creative and delicious! All of us enjoyed the food, very nice selection of Latin foods. We will definitely be back again!

I've gone to Gabriela's quite a few times. Every time the food has been exceptional as well as the service. Cocktails are made will all fresh juices and they have a tequila bar with quite a list of nice choices. Great outdoor space to dine in as well :-)

When visiting relatives or friends in New York, we enjoy coming here especially in summer when the windows are open. Great brunch food, attentive staff and , oh yes- great drinks! The place is not crowded when we go in the morning and the staff is very pleasant and helpful without hovering. You can sit at the bar if it... More

The food was good, but the service not. They make you wait forever until coming to your table. Price is ok.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
