I had breakfast here while staying at the Sofitel for over a week and other than fruit, pastries and smoked salmon which did not require intervention from the chef, I really can’t compliment anything else that came out of the kitchen. Despite a very wide-ranging breakfast menu, I highly recommend sticking to what does not require cooking because other than... More

We walked past the restaurant not long after we'd arrived in New York and decided to book a table for New Year's Day. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere got better as the evening went on. The food itself was delicious, I had possibly the best steak I've ever had - and only for $29. A...

When one gets tired of hot dogs and steaks, finding a nice French brasserie is a relief to the palate and a pleasure to the eye. Gaby does a great job of combining the magnificent quality of good American ingredients with French savoir faire. Excellent pre-theater menu, served promptly by a friendly and attentive waiter. Lovely Parisian ambiance and all... More

One of my fav spots in midtown, a hidden gem! Classy, elegant yet simple and cozy. Exceptional sevice, especially Aiden and his team! Food is amazing and always fresh. Highly recommend for all occasions - from business to romantic. A perfect Euro escape (love the room!) in the middle of crazy Big Apple.

Having eaten in Paris many times and being exposed to the typical attitude of many Parisian wait staff, it's not too surprising that service at Gaby leaves something to be desired by American standards. I don't understand why clearing away dirty dishes from the table is such an issue here but it is and this detracts from an otherwise lovely... More

I stopped at Gaby for a sort of late lunch. The chef was nice enough to prepare the vegetarían lasaña. It was tasty and fresh, still a bit spicy, something that I have noticie in different restaurants. The ambiance is perfect, ultra clean and tidy and the service excellent.

Last Saturday we needed to find a good restaurant that is near the Theater District for a pre-theater dinner. Having stayed several times in the Sofitel Hotel and being familiar with their restaurant, Gaby, we made reservations using Open Table. We found availability at 6PM and we pleased with the experience. Gaby has very good food, starting with their bread... More

Had escargot and shrimp risotto, exquisite and delicate. Best escargot I ever had. Just a little too noisy place.

Found a warm window seat away from the crowd and had an excellent brunch, French press coffee, basket of fresh croissants and wheat muffins, Eggs Benedict and smoked Salmon. Excellent service and a nice sit down relaxing Brunch which we had a difficult time finding.
