At first glance Gabriela's seems like any other Mexican restaurant. Large noisy room, full bar with lots of margaritas, and a menu that has tacos, burritos and the like. The difference was in the quality of the food. My Chimichanga was light and crispy, not...More

Friendly neighborhood comfort food with a Mexican flavor. Prices are reasonable remembering that this is Manhattan. A bit noisy and service can be a bit slow.

The fajitas and frozen margaritas are wonderful! Watch out for those margaritas - they're potent. There's a large outside and inside seating. Midweek for lunch wasn't busy (or noisy), so we took our time and sat for at least 2 hours. I'd definitely would return.

Freshly made in premises tortillas, and themselves selections of Tequila toucan find. We had great time with nice vibe, a word of advice plan to be driven back by a taxi to be able to enjoy freely.

Gabriela's is a nice mexican Restaurant at the upper westside. The Food is good, but a bit more expensive than in other mexican places. They have all the classical mexian dishes and the quality of the food is good. The coctails (e.g. frozen Margeritas) are...More

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...More
