“Great food, and on Mondays they offer a great special!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We visited Gabrielle's on a Monday night, and found to our surprise that entrees are 1/2 price that night! We started with the truffle-parmesan fries, then the pan-roasted Atlantic salmon and seared sea scallops. Presentation and taste were amazing, and our waitress - despite the large Monday crowd - was attentive and friendly. We never felt rushed or ignored, which can be a tricky balance to strike. We had a delightful dinner there and highly recommend it!

“Everything always done right.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

The food is always consistently great. The service is wonderful. The atmosphere warm and classic. We go to Gabrielle's about once a month. It is always a great evening.

“Food Was Delicious”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We went to Gabrielle's to celebrate our 29th anniversary because we wanted a really special dinner, and we were not disappointed. The food, from the appetizers to the dessert were all delicious. I had the "Pretty Girl Greens" salad, which was good, not outstanding. We ordered the shrimp and scallions pancake and the vegetable spring roll and loved both. The dipping sauce on one had a bit of a kick to it, but we don't mind spicy so we enjoyed it. If you don't like "spicy" check with your server before ordering, otherwise, ENJOY!

For our entrees, I ordered the seared scallops and my husband had the pan roasted salmon. My scallops were VERY moist and tender... really excellent. My husband said the salmon was cooked perfectly, really moist.

We shared the Double Chocolate Fudge Cake with Raspberry Sauce... Sinful! Very rich but just delicious.

The room was very full and a bit noisy. Price-wise this is a bit upscale but perfect for a special night out. We would recommend this restaurant. We find it hard to give a five as EVERYTHING would have to be truly outstanding, and this does not go that far. It really is very good, but not five stars.

“Pre theatre meal : very good meal”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Purchases a ticket and meal package $70 per person for meal a ticket to the Ivoryton theatre. Eat at 6:00am. Restaurant busy but services good and friendly. Had really nice chicken dish followed by creme brûlée. I forgot Soup for start as well. Good value and good America fare with a upmarket feel.

“No longer a happy customer”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I used to love this place and recommended it frequently. But the past two visits, only weeks apart, have changed my opinion. We made reservations for Valentine's Day, arrived on time, only to find many couples already waiting. We finally sat down 45 min. after our reservation. We went again on a Saturday and were seated promptly but then waited over an hour to get dinner. There was a party of 23 that consumed the kitchen. Both instances point to bad management of the dining room. You need to account for big parties and how long people we take to eat on a special occasion. This isn't rocket science! We won't be back.
