    Not TexMex, and is not supposed to be...

    I love Gabriela's. Tex Mex is the American version of Mexican food--I don't think anyone who thinks Tex Mex is the goal here is qualified to comment. While Gabriela's has to serve it a bit (most New Yorkers demand it), it's really trying for authentic Mexican food. For instance, they don't use a blender to make their guacamole, and they don't have an extensive selection of burritos with rice and other suspicious ingredients IN the burrito. As a native Californian who grew up near a Mexican neighborhood, I was ecstatic when Gabriela's first opened. It's not the same as the original, but still leaps and bounds better than those places that serve the ridiculously inauthentic "burritos" and other American Mexican food.

    Nice outside seating - great for a date

    In terms of atmosphere, the outdoor seating is the best on the UWS. Designed to feel more like a garden than sidewalk. Good food, hit or miss service. MUCH better guac than the previous Gabrielas, but nothing like rosa mexicano or dos caminos. Relatively cheap, above average food, and outdoor seating.

    Great Watermelon Magarita's

    Visited Gabriela's while in the City, great Watermelon Magarita's & salsa, service is a little slow. If possible on a nice day get a table outside. Will definitely make this a stop when I'm in the City.

    Finally

    Finally quality mex in the W 90's. Service was a little slow, but I think they deserve a little slack since they just opened this space. Food and strong Margaritas were fantastic.

    Ehhh

    Food was alright - once it finally got to us ALL AT ONCE! It took forever to get an order of guacomole which eventually came AFTER our entrees arrived (it was meant to be an appetizer!) The stuffed shrimp was good though. Service was poor - very slow indeed. May go there again, just for drinks and a snack but perhaps not for dinner. My salad wasn't all that great.

    Price & Food seem to be off

    Recently came across Gabriela's new space on Columbus/94th Street. Was excited as this area was in desperate need of a great (or even good) restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was nothing special. In fact, I've made better Tex/Mex at home using grocery store ingredients. While the space is nice and service very accomodating, I wish they had spent more time of the food. I will try it again in about a month. I'm hoping that they had simply cut corners due to the high volume they were experiencing on my visit.

    Puh-leeze

    I've lived in Dallas and LA, and Gabriela's would thrive in either of those places. In Dallas, even the most died in the wool, W-luvin' (read illiterate) Tex-Mex fans would enjoy the respite from beans and lard. In LA, where there are more restaurants like Gabriela's, its consistency and great service would make it stand out. Gabriela's is the best Mexican food on the Upper West Side, better than Rosa Mexicano even.
