What a fun place for a birthday party! We ordered guacamole and margaritas while waiting for everyone to arrive - it wasn't cheap but was the best I've had in a long time. The watermelon margarita was a hit, served with a slice of fresh watermelon on the side. They let us change tables and move to a more private... More

For me the Best Maxican restaurant in the upper West side!!! I went with my family and it is very confortable when you have Kids. The food was good, I recomended Huevo rancheros or Chilaquiles en salsa verde....the Margaritas I loved!!!!....the price it is ok for the area.

Went to gabrielas at times square new kitchen. Staff unhelpful, mostly on their phones. Did not call our number out so food was left on counter for a good 10 minutes. Tiny portions for the price. Plenty of other options available for better quality and price. Avoid

We ate Gabriela's Taqueria which had many Mexican items on the menu (like the tacos and the quesadilla). Very good food! this was at their location in City Kitchen.

Brilliant service, food, price and atmosphere. Friends reunion. Superb at every level. Wonderful attention from the staff. lots of fun and fine food. We had our own semi-alcove to keep us part of the action but intimate enough to hear each other speak. Great place. Will go back there, for sure.

Whenever we are in NYC we explore restaurants in the Upper West Side and were thrilled to discover Gabriela's. I can't wait to go back and explore other dishes but I will definitely have their guacamole again, made fresh at the table, and I just loved their quesadilla de camarones. This quesadilla with shrimp was billed as an appetizer but... More

Fun decor inside and good outdoor space, although construction scaffolding has made it dark. Excellent margaritas and great menu.

Visited with a family member. Service was friendly enough and good enough but, not excellent. Ordered chimichangas - and again, very good but, way too expensive for Mexican fare. They must we paying elevated rent with the pricing. I have had much better Mexican food.

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.
