Service was terrible....and the place was very empty with only a few tables occupied and few guys at the bar. My friend had ordered me a drink 10-15 mins before I arrived but it still wasn’t brought to the table for another 10-15 mins after I got there!
Menu was varied and the French Toast which was more like donut was delicious!
The waitress did not come back to check our food, offer water or more drinks! We tried to get her attention but she didn’t even look out way or check on us at all. Eventually my friend went to order at the bar! When she did come over with the drinks we explained we had been trying to get her attention for water and drinks for a while. Instead of an apology her response was... still or sparking water!
Good service is not difficult and the lack of it was not due to the place being busy.... which wouldn’t be a good excuse anyway if managed well.
Would not go back based on poor service!
Always one of our favorite places in Riviera Village. Service is always helpful and friendly. Love the gin and tonic list. There are always more dishes we want to share than we can eat--so need to go back! Especially love the sauted dates and the quince salad. This time we had the toast provencal and the glazed pork belly. Both were awesome.
It was a fantastic brunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals and cocktails!
Great staff and food. Love Gabi James
Adam is very knowledgeable. We remember him from the Medeteraneo days in hermosa. We had a great discussion about Sherry's and beers. Unique products available especially Sherry and Gins.
I really like the owner of this restaurant as he’s a very good local operator. I went a few times when the restaurant first opened and it was great. This time I was really disappointed in the service. The guy was polite and tried but extremely slow and inattentive... waited waited waited for wine 20 mins, to order, etc. i hope they refocus on service because Redondo is better off with Gabi James as a thriving establishment.
Nice wine selection!
love the food here so much! The service is great too and the manager is super kind and made sure we were always taken care of. I highly recommend their tuna sandwich - it's super rich though so be ware - it's a yummy TREAT! and their French fries are beyond delicious! One of our favorite weekend brunch spots (:
Excellent food and terrific service
Great drinks too!
Nice Casual ambience but a little noisy
Always worth returning to frequently
Food was delicious and the service was great. We are going to add Gabbi James to our rotation.
Everything about Gabi James is top notch. Service, Food, Drinks, Ambiance and quality experience. Truly a Gem!
Always a great experience! Service friendly and helpful if you ask for recommendations or if you are just curious. Food and drinks have always been tasty and quick. If you are lucky and get a table outside it is a great way to enjoy an afternoon!
Makes a Saturday brunch with a few friends seem like a mini vacay! Really great food!
I absolutely love this place. Everything from the service, drinks, food, ambiance...it’s my current go-to.
Amazing!! Will continue to come again and again.
Farewell dinner for friends moving to Florida.
Despite having a confirmed reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes for our table in a very cramped space. We were then seated at a table in the very back of the restaurant in front of the open kitchen door. The table was too large for our party of four and we had to speak loudly in order to hear one another. The food and service were fine, but I would not recommend Gabi James.
We love this local spot. Service is always good with friendly waitstaff and a lively atmosphere. We had our favorite plates of gambas (shrimp) with delicious grilled bread to sop up the garlicky liquid, and the pork belly. Both delicious. Tried the special risotto with duck as a main and it was very good. Rice was perfectly cooked. Their desserts are awesome but we ran home for birthday cake this time.
Always a great evening at Gabi James. Terrific service and wonderful food.
The food was excellent, though it took a do-over to get my dish correct. The noise was VERY loud, so I would definitely not recommend it for a first date. Dishes were very creative and really quite delicious. We will return.
I went for Valentine's day expecting mediocre everything as it often happens during big holidays. I was pleasantly surprised when the server was great, helpful and super knowledgeable, the food amazing and fun. We ordered 6 different tapas randong from seafood to meat and veggies and each one had a distinctive flavor , very tasty. Desserts were also to die for: la crema catalana was super yummy and the Valentine's day special was fantastic.
Delicious food with a great vibe. Service was on point.
We ventured out on Valentines day and had a very nice experience. The staff was friendly. It was a nice night outside and we were pleasantly surprised with the regular menu vs. a limited special menu. We shared some salad, the turkey meatballs (which was fabulous) and roasted chicken. All great. Thanks.
Remember Chez Melange? Same owners with Tapas as basic meme. The decor could be improved with the help of a designer to improve ambience. Would recommend for epicureans and for those who enjoy dining in an unpretentious mood with superlative food.
Thank you! We hope to see you soon! Cheers!
One of our favorite places in the village. Love the gin and tonic menu. We can go with friends and order plates to share or for a nicer dinner with my own entree. Staff is always friendly and accommodating.
We love having you and always love spreading the G&T gospel! We hope that you will be back very soon! Cheers!
Food was outstanding. Might be the best octopus we've ever had! Everything was delicious, and would love to return again to try more. The only disappointing part of our experience was the service. We waited over 10 mins for our waiter and water despite the fact that the restaurant was about 50% full. Once he arrived, he took our drink orders then promptly forgot them, never came back to refill the water bottle, and never checked back in on any of the courses served. It marred what would could have been a knockout meal.
Hi Alex! We are so happy you loved the octopus and will return for more. We are sorry to hear that you had to wait and that service was not up to snuff/ We want you to know that this is out of the ordinary and an exception to our usual service standards. We hope to see you again soon!
Good food. Slow service. Loud so hard to have a conversation. Very expensive for portion sizes.
Hi there. We are sorry to hear that your service was not as fast as hoped and that you would have preferred larger portions, but we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and hope that you will visit us again soon!
I got a delicious surprise birthday crème brûlée dessert which was delicious. The flank steak salad was perfection. They were very accommodating as well.
We are so happy to enjoyed your birthday visit to Gabi James and can't wait for you to visit us again soon!
Wonderful! Not very crowded on a Sunday lunch time .
Attentive service and delicious food .
Thanks for coming by for brunch! We hope you come give dinner a try very soon!
Tables near bar are too close and the people in these chairs are constantly bumped by everyone walking by. Bad layout for an expensive e restaurant.
Great location and the service is excellent. Not sure if it was the ham or just the overall dish but my dish was a bit salty.
There’s nothing I don’t love about Gabi James. I brought numerous people there and they in turn bring numerous people there. Sshhh. Kind of want to keep it amongst ourselves so that I can get in when I want to LOL.
You are a rock star! Thank you for bringing in your friends and for always having a great time with us at Gabi James!
Elizabeth was a great server which coupled with the food made it a great experience.
Hi Dan! We are so happy you enjoyed Elizabeth and your food with us at Gabi James! We hope you will visit us again very soon! Cheers!
We had a reservation but had to wait awhile. The hostess was attentive while we waited. When we were seated, a complimentary appetizer arrived as a thank you for waiting. Great customer service.
Thank you so much for joining us Joey and thank you for your patience as you waited for your table. We hope you will join us again very soon!
Great food, fun to share and great service! Cool drink list and interior. Well done!
Thanks so much Mel! We really appreciate you joining us and all the kind words! We hope to see you again very soon!
Excellent food and attentive service! The meatballs were so delicious, and the shrimp and scallops were fresh, high quality, and well-prepared. Great sauces, and brilliant use of herbs and spices.
Thank you so much for visiting us at Gabi James! We are so happy you enjoyed everything and can't wait for you to try more!
Awesome meal, as always. And super friendly, personal service.
Thanks so much! It is really important to us that you felt that friendly, personal touch!
Food was amazing! Service was subpar. Bring a jacket because even sitting indoors it’s freezing.
New year’s eve
We sat outside on a great New Year's Eve evening. We shared the peppercorn filet, a Cesar salad and side of broccolini. The filet was great with the au poivre. The Cesar dressing was a bit flat and could have used more seasoning. The broccolini was the right call for the side. I had a gin martini from the extensive collection and my wife had a pomegranate martini! Nice.
Thank you for celebrating NYE with us! We are excited that you chose to start the New Year off with us and are glad to hear that it started off with a meal and drinks that you really enjoyed!
