We went there for the Margaritas and had a great time - I tried the strawberry & the lime one which were pretty good. Gabriela's has a good ambience and the service was great as well...I had a chicken burrito and could not finish it - food is okay.

Pros: very nice decor and atmosphere for date night... servers were very attentive... food was OK... great presentation... Cons: priced for upper west side... small portions... was very disappointed with the dessert - chocolate lava cake - some hardness as if it were reheated in a microwave

I made a rezzie and they were kind to seat two of us at a 4-top. We were there for 3 hours and had a leisurely time. They respected our slowness and didn't rush us. I had quesadilla with beef which is plenty for the main entree even though it is an appetizer. My friend had a burrito that was... More

Mexican Cuisine. Very nice place. Very family orientated. It is a place to have a very good meal with friends and family for a very nice price. They do not want to be a starred restaurant. They want to be a place where anyone can have fun and enjoy a very good food in a nice environment . And they... More

Everything looked very good in the menus, but beside the Nachos that were really good, the rest of the food was really disappointing. Same goes for the drinks (we had one frozen and one regular Margarita and we didn't even finish them.

Love the menu. Fresh items, nice ambience. Best to eat outside if not during the cold season. Try the burrito.

The service was okay and the dining area was clean (did not use the restroom) but beyond that, I have very few words. I don't like heaping plates of food so I was fine with small-ish portion size. I ordered a chicken fajita which was bland, the refried beans was a puddle of paste, and the rice and vegetables seemed... More

I live very near Gabriela's so we end up going there often when we decide to eat out. Both the food and drinks are very good. They have both inside and outside dining and a huge selection of tequilas and frozen drinks. The service does vary a lot depending on how busy they are and also they don't take reservations... More

Had a pleasant dining experience with family while seated outdoors on a Sunday evening. The frozen marguerita's were strong and tasty. Some delicious guacamole was nicely done and prepared us for our meal. I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend the jumbo shrimp fajitas which were perfect...as tasty as I have ever had anywhere.

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 theatre 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.
