I loved the vibe. Super relaxed, not pretentious, but still classy. Food was amazing, the prix fix vday dinner was lovely. Meatballs were PERFECTION. customer service was wonderful. Loved the seating because I actually had room to eat. Most restaurants squeeze as many tables as possible to the point where I feel like I’m sharing a table with a stranger. At Harding’s, I could actually breathe and have a lovely conversation with my family and not need to scream.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Gab's! Come and dine with us for a creative experience you won't forget. From the artwork on the walls to the artwork Chef Nate Ashton is putting on the plate; Gab's will not disappoint. Recently receiving a Michelin Guide recommendation, Gab's is centered on locally sourced and seasonal cuisine. Chef Nate makes his housemade sourdough bread an hour before service every day. We use the highest quality, local, organic ingredients. A few highlights include the Berkshire Pork Chop, the Spaetzle with lump crab, and of course the Gab's Burger with a housemade sweet potato bun and signature sauces. We are right in the heart of the West Village on the famous Carmine Street. Gab's offers a gorgeous outdoor sidewalk patio as well as bar seats and a spacious dining room inside. We take walk ins and large groups. From the service to the food we go above and beyond to make sure dining is a luxury experience.

Incredibly good sushi - lovely dining room. Already craving for more. It doesn’t say anywhere on their website that they don’t have a liquor license. It’s a pity but luckily there’s a sake wine shop right around the corner.
