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

Great Mexican food in a quiet neighbourhood in upper manhattan. It is within walking distance if you are going to the natural history museum. Great frozen margarita (a must even though it was below freezing outside). Fajitas magic as are the nachos which they will bring you a bucket load of if you want them. Only slight let down was...

We heard about this restaurant from a friend and had decided this was one restaurant we were certain to visit on our next trip to NYC . . . It did not dissapoint! The drinks were amazing as to be expected, but the menu was extensive and deliciously authentic! We sat at the bar for a late lunch and the... More

While visiting from out of town, went there with adult grandchildren and my daughter on a freezing NYC evening. First time there but highly recommended. The margarita menu was extensive and pleased all of our palates. The Santgria was delicious too. The menu is extensive with all of our Mexican favorites. I had the best enchilada's that I've eaten in... More

Most of the reviews say it all, MEDIOCRE !!! 14 family members waited a long time for Cold Tasteless food! Rude waitress didn't make it better. The fact that we enjoyed each other's company saved the night. Never again!!!

The special 1/2 chicken , served with two sides, is so juicy and succulent. I am not a person who orders chicken in restaurants, but this preparation is really something special. The rest of my party had burritos---so big that they had to take them home. We all had wonderful frozen drinks...pomegranate daiquiri---fabulous. Service is pleasant and prompt. Nice atmosphere...

Sure you get to sit down with a knife and fork, have waiter service and all. The food was just not good. I can't believe that this restaurant got such good ratings. The place is always crowded, so we decided to try it out. Unfortunately to our dismay. Service was okay, but the food was just not good. My wife... More
