Great Atmosphere

This restaurant had a great vibe to it. It was a beautiful night and we had a table outside. It's fairly large and every table was taken. The food was good and as expected and so was the pricing. Very good beer selection. Considering there's not much going in that area, Gabriela's is very needed... read more

Firstly they spilt tequila all over my friend and did not offer any form of apology, they intact charged her to the tequila drink! Then when I later checked my bank account they had fraudulently added an additional 10% tip when I had already left 20% making it 30% tip and when I try to contact the restaurant (for 5... More

Really good Mexican food. NOT TEX-MEX! We usually go for a frozen margarita, which is always delicious, and share a couple of appetizers or each enjoy a meal. Most recently had the Camarones Rellenos and Quesadillas. We also enjoy their Fajitas‎, the skirt steak and the chicken. The guacamole is the best I've had in the City. We go here... More

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!

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.

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 :-)

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.
