@ butwhoami. Not sure if this is fact but when I was in a competitor of Gabriel's I asked for a cold slice and was told that it had to be heated up for a certain amount of time due to requirements by the city health inspector.

Stopped by the other night (Rideau location) due to a combination of a pizza craving and seeing the storefront sign for a $3 jumbo slice.

They only had 2 slices left, both pepperoni. The guy gave it to me cold so I had to ask for it to be heated up.

The slice was a good size, but it was a pretty average piece of pizza to me. I didn't think it was all that different than any of the other downtown vendors (3-for-1, 2-for-1, 1-for-1, whatever they're called..), which is too bad, because I was expecting a bit more from Gabriel.

But hey, price was right and it was enough to satisfy by size alone, so I'll probably be back.

I noticed that Gabriel's now has a delivery charge, Shame, I think it's $3.

I love their food, but that makes me think twice seeing as how there are other places that offer free delivery.

They have the best pizza in Ottawa for delivery.

I was not in a pizza mood tonight and ordered the fettuccine alfredo which was not very good the noodles were swimming in a bland alfredo sauce and the garden/chef salad consisted mostly of lettuce with a few olives, three slices of tomatos and a few green peppers in the middle on top of the salad. I got the house dressing on the side, which is a thick garlic sauce they usually deliver as garlic sauce for dipping the pizza crust. I'm not sure how you mix such a thick sauce like that on a salad.

Note: Just stick to the pizza for delivery.

I was put in charge of ordering for pizza for work. I called the 310-number the day before and a lady confirmed the order with me.

The next morning she called me at work and confirmed the order but i hadn't noticed that she changed it when she spoke.

I had order a few combos, a hawaiian and 2 veggies.

When we got the order, one of veggie had bacon on it (i never would have ordered a veggie pizza for 2 of my Muslim collegues).

I called the 310 numbers and was passed on to the person who i spoke earlier and she said that it was the order i placed. I was fuming!!! She put me on hold and came back to tell me that the only thing she could do was to send another veggie and charge me half price. Because my collegues had not brought a lunch and were hungry, i HAD to agree. I told the person how upset i was and when i told the delivery guy the same, he told me i should have gotten it free.
I am the one who orders for my floor and will never,ever buy a pie from these crooks again

re: rude staff on the phone

they switched over to a call management service and I noticed a very sudden shift in how I was spoken to. My last straw for a delivery order was when I was essentially 'commanded' to give my name for an order to a house. To paraphrase myself "enter the name as "Cash Money" as that's how I'm paying" when the delivery guy came he said the operator had made a note that "customer refused to give name" and he said he was happy to have seen that because he'd fielded dozens of complaints at doorsteps since they'd switched over to the call centre.

I live next to Pizza Shark now anyways so problem doubly solved :)

The one at Bank and Huntclub is just horrible!

We usually are quite happy with their pizza, but have recently had a horrible experience with service at the Clarence location East of Ottawa. I work at a school and called four hours in advance to have pizza delivered to the school. We are always on a time crunch and the pizza ended up being delivered over an hour late. On top of this, the bill was $10 more than the price they had given over the phone. The staff was unbelievably rude over the phone for the multiple calls I made to see where the pizza was and try to clear up the billing problem. Needless to say, we will not be ordering from them in the future.

Hubby and I went to Gabriel's in Bridlewood (Kanata) and I was less than impressed. The place was packed to the gills with families with children. We were seated at a table for two at the very back corner of the restaurant, right in front of the fire exit. My 6'2 husband was sitting so close to a coat rack that the coats kept whacking him in the head.

We waited about 10 minutes before we got coffee, I had to ask the table next to us for cream and another 10 minutes after that to get our orders taken. 20 minutes after that we finally received our meals. We arrived at 10:45 and were not eating until 11:25.

He ordered plain eggs benedict. I ordered a bacon and eggs breakfast with over easy eggs and sausage. My breakfast was nothing special, but it really peeved me that they overcooked my overeasy eggs! The yolks were barely runny in the centre, very hard aside from that. I still ate it because I was so hungry.

Hubs said he was disappointed with his eggs benedict - homefries, english muffin, egg, hollandaise sauce (which was mediocre as well). He asked for his eggs boiled very hard, not runny at all - it was just borderline, almost runny in the centre, but he still ate it.

Oh, and nobody ever came by to fill our coffee cups. I had to wave down a server (from the very back corner of the room) to come fill them. She has decaf as well so hubby asks for decaf... so she proceeds to fill my cup with decaf "Um..." She offered to get me a new cup, but I just drank the damn decaf anyway.

The server was at least courteous and apologetic about the waiting, but it looked to me that they needed another server or two. Of course when we left there were a few other girls standing around at the bar in the front doing nothing (perhaps they could help the other two ladies running their asses off??)

All in all, very disappointed with our breakfast experience, but it must be popular because the place was packed to the rim. Will give it another try, I guess.

I've had breakfast at the Kanata location on several occasions, as it's just around the corner from my house. It's always been fast, friendly service, and good food for a very reasonable price.

The all you can eat is not a buffet, but you order from the waitress. You get a choice of:
- pizza: combo, hawaiian, pepperoni and bacon, or veggie
- pasta: alfredo, lasanga, spaghetti (maybe one more?)

So you can either have both pizza, two pastas, one choice of each. Basically for each order you can mix and match to your choosing. It is really fast and they are really good about coming around and taking your orders. What I really liked was that they let me take my 4th piece of pizza home, because I could not finish it! Very good service.

The dinner all you can eat is from Monday-Thursday and it is 9.95.

Tell me more about the all you can eat. Is it buffet? A la carte? What is eligible for AYCE?
thanks

I went to Gabriel's at bank and hunt club for their all you can eat pizza and pasta for dinner the other night. It was amazing! I managed to eat enough between the two of us to cover the cost of a medium pizza, so the price was the same. But being able to try all different kinds of pizza was great. The Pizza was really fresh and hot! Love! I will for sure be back, not for just breakfast and take out!

Horrible!
We kept walking past the Bank location and thinking it looked good/interesting. I assumed that it was a nice place - boy was I wrong. The waitress was running around totally flushed when there was 2 ppl in the store. She took our order and then came back 10 minutes later to ask the size. Then we found out that she had not placed our order first as it should have been, but after 3 other pizza orders. She got a bad tip for that one! If busy I can understand but she wasn't!
Then to top it off the pizza was really greasy - I mean dripping with oil.
Won't be back! ever!

My favourite pizza in the world is the Gabriel Deluxe: bacon, olives, mounds of cheese - what's not to love?! I always order from the Baseline location - always very quick and polite service. I've also eaten-in at the Bank St. location - they have a good lunch menu with lots of simple fare as an alternative to pizza.

I went through a phase a couple of years ago of getting their small, double-cheese, plain pizzas; I think they may've had a special or something.

It was quite the mess of cheese, but, yum. Browned just so on top. Finishing even a small alone is not easily done.

Ordered dinner the other week, and I remain fairly impressed. The sauce could be more flavourful, but: cheese generous, toppings fresh, crust not terribly thin despite the request for same, but I have to admit a thinner crust wouldn't have gone well with their style of pizza.

It pains me that there is no dough ball in the centre of the pie -- it looks like that sort, if you know what I mean...

The salad wasn't bad. Extremely fresh stuff, not too stingy on the non-lettuce parts, but it lost points for using those dreadful bitter white parts.

Bonus points for polite and quick service, too.

Hey, New User 3441 from last month...

Twice I've had eggs florentine there and enjoyed the dish both times, although the spinach is simply cooked, no seasoning to speak of. Nice bacon, nice fruit. But on the 2nd visit, on New Year's Day, the hollandaise sauce was lighter than a cloud, absolutely 5 star! Hope that happens again next time!

The breakfast at the HuntClub/Bank location is wonderful! I get the Rise and Shiner which is 3 eggs, homefries, 4-5 strips of bacon and toast. My fiance and I eat everything, even the fruit on the plate is fresh, the over easy eggs are perfect.

My only complaint with this location is most of the time there are tons of servers but no one dedicated to you and they always seem confused. I think this is because they share the tasks and no-one knows who is getting what for whom. I think one time the service was excellent and it was because there was one server there.

Tip my hat to the chef though, best breakfast ever..i even tried other locations and we go out of our way to have breakfast at this location!

You wouldn't think a pizza joint would have a good breakfast, but you would be wrong - these guys are probably the most unknown breakfast joint in town, and it's good, really good.

Fast - BIG PORTIONS - diner coffee as expected, but they keep fillin it, so thats good-many dishes include lotsa cheese surprise surprise, it is a pizza place.

I had the Farmers choice, which makes any big breakfast look measly next to this monster!!
3 eggs with 2 pancakes or Pain Doré with 3 strips of bacon and 3 sausage,i think you can get ham if you want, plus homefries and toast. It's a hangover special for sure!

My girlfriend had the chicken broccoli and swiss omelette, also massive, 3 eggs, toast and homfries or tomates, she loved it.

Open 7 days a week at 7 a.m. definitely reccomend this place, friendly, lotsa seating, wicked food, its got it all.

I had the breakfast fritata a couple of times this week already. It's a small pizza shell with an egg and hollandaise mixture, then any 3 pizza toppings (mine were bacon, onion, and red pepper), and covered with cheese.

For $6.

Both times, it has filled me up so much that I haven't had lunch. Six bucks for two meals? I'm into that.

It's pretty good, too. Just remember to let it sit for a good 20 minutes before eating so the egg has a chance to firm up and doesn't get all over your favourite jumper.
