We stayed at the Sofitel and on our way out of town decided to go to Gaby for brunch. What a wonderful little restaurant! The french atmosphere and cuisine were amazing. Flaky, buttery croissants, great coffee, and I never knew Eggs Benedict could taste so good. My husband got the Belgian waffles and they were seriously To-Die-For. Expect to spend... More

We had breakfast at Gaby twice and celebrated New Year's Eve dinner there. On New Year's Eve we had Brian as a server. He was so attentive as was the rest of the staff. All of our meals were prepared to perfection and food allergies were accommodated. The managers both in the AM and PM were very attentive, stopping by... More

Taken kids out there for lunch. Although it is located in the Sofitel hotel, it has separate entrance on 45th. Food is nice, though portions size is more European than American. Fish was particularly good.

Great breakfast! Feels very french. French press coffee, great tea selection and great croissants. We had oatmeal with bananas and an omelette one day and oatmeal with berries and cheese and ham plate another. Very happy with the service and the food. Also, a great place for a glass of wine or cocktail before a show or dinner.

We went in Christmas Day for a small bite at lunch time. Had the escargo, pouilly fuisse, and goat cheese salad. The server had a few too many tables to take care of so we waited quite awhile.

Very basic food for which you wait an extremely long time to receive! Very very over priced and staff don't really give a dam as their tips are included in your bill. I am staying in the hotel that this restaurant is in and there are so many better, places to eat for that kind of money near by. Give... More

Lovely! Strolled by Gaby on our way back to our hotel... Decided we had time for lunch, so popped in. They do an all day Sunday Brunch that was perfect ... choose either a classic French or classic American. I'm still talking about the savory crepe! Truly recommend when you have time to savor.

Thank May Y

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
