I am essentially an outsider here, and I have not used phabricator.
However, the Chromium project uses Rietveld for codereview: and

IIRC, Diego Novillo setup a rietveld instance for GCC:

Chromium-OS project uses gerrit and hence I have used both these tools
and my personal choice is rietveld over gerrit by many a mile.
Rietveld can be configured to send mails to a watchlist for every
patch sent out for review and also for every review posting. Hence,
all review logs can still be saved in a mailing list archive.
