The Gate has long been a destination for revelers, and with solid food and a fun atmosphere it's easy to see why. Nice fireplace, good beer selection, and a long menu which seems impossible when you see how tiny the kitchen is. Service is a bit slapdash (of the wrap-your-own-leftovers, here's-the-bill with dishes still on the table-variety). Fish Fry, a... More

My family traveled to Buffalo recently and I was able to meet up with a friend who lived locally. We decided to be cliché and have Buffalo Wings. My friend suggested Gabriel's Gate and we were not let down. These were the best wings I've ever had. The sauce was fantastic, you can get mild, medium, hot or suicide. I... More

The interior is very eclectic. We sat in the front window beside a gas fireplace with was nice. They had a wood fire going inside the bar area and a sitting area in the back garden. Prices are very good. I got their version of beef on weck and it was delicious. My wife got medium wings and she loved... More

This restaurant & pub was recommended by the hotel I stayed at on nearby Delaware Ave, as I arrived late & wanted to get a late evening dinner & a good beer. The place is really interesting & potentially fun, and so funky that I so much wanted to like this place. I realize it was a Wednesday night though... More

We stopped for a beer at a local sports bar and the Buffalo locals recommended we go to Gabriel's Gate for great wings. It did not disappoint! It's a terrific, not cramped and crowded local spot with very comfortable seating. Service was terrific, and this was after 10:00 PM. The wings were terrific! Well flavored, plump, and cooked perfectly. My... More

Gabriel's Gate is in a classic old row house. They have done a great job of creating good flow in the restaurant while keeping a lot of the original building, including floors, woodwork, ceiling, and more. Very pleasant. But we came for the food. A lunch of Buffalo Wings and Beef inn Welk. Glad we stopped in and glad we... More

I must say I have no complaints about the food or service. But the establishment is disgusting! We were seated by the fireplace that was full of cobwebs. We changed are seat only to have more cobwebs hanging from the lights. I'm afraid to think of what the kitchen looks like. I wouldn't even use the bathroom. So I just... More

The wings were excellent. There were three of us that went here and each of us got 10 wings. I got the hot, another got mild and the third got Cajun. I definitely ate all of the hot and tried both mild and Cajun. Of those two the Cajun was surprisingly good and not as hot as I thought it... More

Horrible service. The waitress greeted us with do you need to order? We had to ask her for specials. Steak was over cooked and my pasta dish was pretty boring.

We read the reviews and the forum threads about which place had the best wings in town. Gabriel's Gate always was near the top, but like all the places it had its detractors. Undeterred, we stopped in for lunch on the Labour Day weekend and had excellent service and delicious food. We would highly recommend a visit. Service was prompt... More
