Amazing service. Really satisfied about the location, food and personnel. There was an unfortunate event during the dinner and the personnel managed the situation professionally and also offered us 4 glasses of champagne (and we were only two!). I would definitely go back when in Paris! The restaurant is located in the best hotel I have ever seen in my life. Highly recommended.

Delightful restaurant on the Avenue Gabriel in a very discrete location. Everything was impeccable from arrival to dessert!! I would go back. The cuisine was very good - though one of the fish courses wasn’t as sublime as I’d expected. The chefs signature artichoke heart dish was superb! All of the details, from the service to the wine suggestion, were impeccable and not a bit stuffy! I great evening with friends!!

Imagine sitting for Dinner with the queen!!!! This was the equivalent!
We had the experience menu with wine pairing.... this was where basically a blind tasting menu.

The food was imaginative, amazingly presented and delivered with passion and finesse.... the whole event was gastronomic theatre and was served in a dinning hall fit for a royal variety performance!

The wine was served sparingly and as you would imagine superb.

Only minor gripe was the tables were very close together and we were jammed in between a super romantic young couple and an other couple who were intent on staring at us for the whole meal.... it was a relief when they left!

Of the many places we visited in the world, this one deserves a spot in its own.
Everything was simply perfect.
The setting, the personnel, the food.
From the entrance, you feel this restaurant is a magic place. The ambient is inspiring, the personnel is spotless, professional, welcoming and warm.
The food is simply perfect. It takes you on a journey of flavours - it makes you dream, and appreciate the genius of Chef Blanctel. But it's not just him, everybody has been amazing.
We had the salmon, lamb, pig, and the retour.
The fact that the courses were described to us in Italian means nothing is left to chance or luck at Le Gabriel.
When you dare to go to a two stars with two young kids (10 and 7), and the personnel is extremely accommodating and courteous so that you feel at home, it means everything is simply perfect.
A must like few other restaurants in the world.
Thank you Le Gabriel for a wonderful experience.

Travelled to Paris to help celebrate my wife's birthday. After 3 wonderful meals (including two 3 star Michelin restaurants), our last dinner was at Le Gabriel. To begin.... a beautiful room in a beautiful setting. The service was exemplary with no arrogance or pretentiousness. We chose the Eperience menu (8 courses) with wine pairings. Each dish was better than the previous one and Michihito, the sommelier, was spot on with every pairing. Yes, it is expensive but worth every penny. This is a 2 star Michelin restaurant that desrves their 3rd star as soon as the next ratings are published. If you happen to be in Paris for a special, or for any occasion, don't miss a dinner at this gem of arestaurant.
