Went to this trendy Mexican restaurant on the upper west side. We ate in the covered outdoor seating area. Upon sitting down we were given fresh warm nachos and 2 types of salsa. We ordered off the lunch menu. My wife had fajitas and I had the steak sandwich. Both were very good. The only complaint was that the plantains... More

We live in the neighborhood and dine at Gabriellas at least once per month. The food is always good but it is not exceptional. Standard dishes such as enchiladas, tacos, and the chili rillenos are solid, without being remarkable. I appreciate very much that the food here is not over fatted. They use good ingredients and it is clear that... More

This is a great neighborhood restaurant. Many repeat customers, many families with little ones, great outdoors space as well as a spacious inside room. The staff is fun and friendly, and we had the best waiter ever. He was delightful and funny and attentive. The food is great (the rice 'side' is very small, but the portions of the food... More

The mohito was a bit too strong, but everything else we drunk and ate was absolutely amazing ! The shrimp chimicuri was great and for dessert we had the choros and crep - both great. The waiter was super nice which covered for the hard time we had understanding him. Would come back again and highly recommend it to others.

Lovely outdoor seating and no need for a reservation on Friday night. Good margaritas with different flavors to choose from. Had the pomegranate and passion fruit. Husband and I shared the grilled shrimp fajitas. Pretty good but was missing flavor. It's like the spices were missing, but we added all the fixings and was better. Service was good as well... More

This neighborhood is full of restaurants and most of them now have outside seating. Gabriela's has a lot of tables outside and the place was almost empty. We ordered the Huevos Ranchero and the Lunch Fajitas. My husband wanted his eggs soft and they came that way. My fajita dish was large and tasted good. There were only 2 tortillas... More

Great food and drinks. Ambiance is amazing. I ordered the spinach salad with grilled shrimp. It had these amazing goat cheese balls wrapped in almonds. And the frozen watermelon margaritas are oh wow awesome. .. as you can tell by this review, it fulfilled it's purpose. . Tipsy and happy! ! ;)

Gabriela's used to be one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Unfortunately, the prices keep going up and the service keeps slipping. We went as a large group to celebrate a birthday. When we asked for water, they only served half the table. There were several times we had to ask for items more than once. They never thought to clear... More
